Why Ray - Sheila Atkins chose South Tenerife
We purchased the property in 1995 and slowly developed the cottages over a period of time.
The main reason for purchasing what was really a ruin of old farm buildings and an old house was the amazing potential and great location. We are just 15 minutes from the airport the beaches, golf courses and yet surrounded by an idyllic rural location. The added advantage of having the shops of San Miguel just a few minutes walk away, coupled with the friendliness of the local villagers and the distance from the touristy areas made our choice the right one.

We stayed at La Bodega for 10 days and found it to be the perfect location from which to see the real Tenerife. Situated in the village of San Miguel it is ideal for walking to the shops and restaurants but is still very peaceful. The fiesta was very lively and great fun even if it was a little noisy some nights! The cottages are beautiful and have everything you need for a perfect holiday. Sheila cooks fantastic meals and could not have been more helpful. I would definitely recommend La Bodega for anyone needing a lovely relaxing break.
