Finca Las Galletas

Situated on an extremely quiet part of Las Galletas, this property has a large heated pool and paddle court in the middle of a old banana plantation that has been there for more than 100 years. The star of the property is the 'really heated' swimming pool which is ideal for swimming, as its size is 13 m x 5 m. There is also a jacuzzi and a little space for fitness activities. Wi-fi. Near the pool area there is a large reading room with comfortable sofas. There is also a paddle court and barbeque area. Each house has a solárium on the roof, with sunbeds, also a private front terrace with outdoor furniture and a back terrace with views to the banana plantations. The finca offers 6 one bedroom houses + 6 two bedroom houses + 1 three bedroom house. It is located within walking distance to some local restaurants, supermarket, bakery and Taxi-bus stop.

About Ana B. Reid

My name is Ana B. Reid, although my second surname is English, I am totally Spanish!. I am a Tenerife resident and I studied Business Administration at ULL University. Apart from that, I have the following TOURIST LICENSE NUMBER: I-0002152.1

All my clients receive complete tourist information, a bit different of the typical one, about hidden beaches, local markets, recommended restaurants, events, ect.

Ana B. Reid purchased this house in 1999

Why Ana B. Reid chose South Tenerife

I recommend this finca as it is a totally different accommodation concept on the Canary Islands. Being in the middle of the banana plantation offers a quiet atmosphere with all the local taste. The pool is absolutely wonderful and there is such an amount of vegetation around the terraces that there is enough privacy on each house. The situation is also an advantage: away from the massive tourist zones but close enough to enjoy the coastal temperatures and excellent communications everywhere.

What makes this house unique

Having a Real Heated pool is an advantage on Winter, as you might have 21ºC but it is great to enjoy the large pool to swim. The finca is enormous and gives you the advantage of follow the route inside to see how a banana plantation works. Obviously, being only 3 km of the coast gives you the chance to visit the beach on any moment and specially its sea avenues with its fresh fish restaurants where the locals go, away from the crowded tourist places. We can provide all the information you require about this.

Beautiful

We loved our holiday and did not want to leave. The villa was spotless and the pool area and surroundings was beautiful. We would highly recommend for families and we will definitely be returning.

proper little paradise

  • 5 of 5

Well maintained, clean property, friendly helpful staff. This property is exactly as described, some may think a car is essential but if like us, you are brave enough to go by bus, you can go to most major and small towns around the island. The nearby Mexican is a must, great value, good food, friendly staff.

Within a few minutes walk there is a 24 hour supermarket for basics, also a larger supermarket with butchers counter no more than 10min walk. Also a couple of bars with outside tv for the essential football and sporting occasions. This is the perfect place to relax and take in the sun. The communal pool is good sized warm and clean.

Although this is a working banana plantation, you are welcome to wander around the picturesque surroundings, also the workers here are very friendly and polite.

We look forward to returning.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your detailed review! Yes, many of our clients stay there without a car as you can walk to the taxi and bus stop (the bus service here is punctual and cheap) although a car is recommended if you wish to move a lot. But you have everything you need on the area, including the lovely mexican! And of course being on the middle of a banana plantation is something really picturesque... my favourite place is the pool, so heated in winter!

Paradijs gevonden

  • 5 of 5

Wij hadden het 3 slaapkamer verblijf, met 3 badkamers. Alles fantastisch.

Een heerlijk terras voor en een binnenplaats met een raam waardoor je zo de schitterende bananenplantage in kijkt. Eén van de slaapkamers komt uit op het heerlijk verwarmde zwembad, met verschillende terrasjes en prachtige planten en bomen.

Ontzettend aardige en behulpzame beheerster.

Vlakbij is het stadje waar we heerlijk en gezellig bij een Mexicaans restaurantje hebben gegeten.

Veel bezienswaardigheden zijn er niet in de buurt, maar voor even lekker naar de zon is het een prima locatie.

Logement au calme dans une bananeraie

  • 5 of 5

Endroit très original. Calme et plaisir des yeux , le coin piscine ( chauffée) est magnifique ,

Végétation digne des Antilles. Logement confortable, rien à voir avec l'ambiance des coins hypertouristiques à fuir. Lave linge et sèche linge très pratiques.

Conclusion : adressé à recommander si on aime être autonome.
