      Quiet area in Tenerife

      Isla de Tenerife Dec 27, 2016 at 9:53 AM

      We would like to escape to some warmer weather in the next week or so but we are not keen on high-rise apartments in tourist areas. I understand the climate in the north is very different to that in the south, so we would like suggestions for a fairly quiet area in the south, in a pleasant hotel, that offers walks, scenery that I can paint, and good restaurants. Many thanks.

    • Easy Walks?!

      by Cavair Online Now Jul 22, 2011 at 4:42 PM

      My wife & i are planning a 2 week trip in Jan 2012 after retiring. I'll be 60 by then and have asthma & my wife had cancer 6 yrs ago which has affected general health. Are there plenty of relatively easy walks if we have a hire car. My wife is also less sure footed than me - i love to explore but have to pace myself - sometimes i'm more ambitious than what i can achieve !! Not sure how much of the spectacular parts will be accessible to us after much reading of websites about the "hiking" and all the trails!
      Thanks for any advice or suggested guidebooks.

    • La Palma for a week - no car

      by SDTraveler Online Now Jul 3, 2010 at 5:30 AM

      Planing a two week trip to canary islands beginning of October. wanted to rent a flat for a 1 week on 2 island, Recommendations here for Tenerife (probably going to Santa Cruz) and Las Palmas. Been reading up on Las Palma and the island sounds wonderful however I am wondering how practical a week there, in a rented flat, would be without a car (I don't have a license).

      Hoping to get some suggestion from others who have been there. Also if you think it is worth, would love recommendations for a town/village as a base

      Thanks Much

    • side trip to El Hierro

      by Online Now Jan 17, 2010 at 11:59 AM

      Dear all

      Next month we will be spending a week on La Palma and were wondering whether it is possible to visit El Hierro as a day trip (by air or ferry) from La Palma. We have become increasingly curious about El Hierro and would like to take advantage of our time on La Palma to try and visit. Anyone done it or knows it can be done?

      Thank you all.

      La Palma in Januari

      by Pijlmans Online Now Nov 21, 2007 at 11:11 PM


      I am planning to go to La Palma in January, but I heard it might be very rainy. But I also read that the west part is much dryer. So I am planning for an apartment on the west part with a car and drive around the island for sightseeing and hikes. Is this sensible?

      If somebody knows a good and not too expensive place to stay (an apartment or bungalow, not a hotel), that would be great. There are many good deals but most of them are in relatively big resorts and me and my girlfriend prefer something more quiet.

      Anyone been to Isla de la Palma, the most northwesterly of the Canary Islands ? If so, did you like it ? Are the people there friendly ? How green is it compared to the other Canary Islands ? Is there much to see there ?
