Beautiful property in authentic little town.
We had an Easter break in this charming rustic stone building with open-plan sitting/dining/kitchen areas on the ground floor and a spacious bedroom (up 3 steps). The apartment is attractive and well equipped. There's a very comfortable 6' bed, lots of storage, dvd player, a large shower cubicle and wc. The property is set within beautiful tropical gardens with several secluded areas for dining or sun bathing by the clean pool. Nice touches were fresh flowers, towelling robes, a drinks trolley (with honesty box) and a change of linen midway through our stay. There were occasional problems with hot water and heating in the evenings and we would have appreciated a modest welcome pack and information regarding local amenities and opening times over the Easter holiday. Arriving in Teror late at night we were unable to find the property (mainly due to the road not being signed and having a no-entry sign!!) and after more than an hour driving around in the dark, we were escorted by the kindly owner of the local petrol station. Teror (8 min walk) is a delightfully authentic town high up in the hills and has many pavement bars, cafes and restaurants (favourites were Como Como and El Encuentro. The Sunday market (9-3) was colourful with many stalls offering local produce, gifts and snacks and we enjoyed watching the locals dancing to the music in the square. Our favourite place to visit was Puerto de las Nieves on the NW coast - a car is essential for exploring the island.
