Cottage in Granadilla de Abona, Tenerife, Canary Islands - Quiet and Picturesque Location. Ideal for Couples, Families, and Friends. Short Drive to Beaches.
'Orange Tree Cottage' (Casa Patio Naranjo) is a charming cottage available for holiday rentals. Built in the early 19th Century, this traditional Canarian cottage is located in the historic centre of Granadilla de Abona, a small village in the southern part of the island of Tenerife – just a few miles from the main tourist areas and only 7.1 miles from Tenerife South Airport (Aeropuerto Reina Sofia). Our location makes it perfect for you to enjoy both the buzz in the natural beaches of the southern part of the island (i.e. El Medano) and the solitude of El Teide National Park. Our cottage is very spacious and has been furnished to reflect traditional Canarian interiors.

Guestbook comments from the owner
"We really loved everything about the cottage.... Location, decor, cleanliness, ambience... We couldn't have chosen a better place for our holiday. We go to Tenerife every year and this has been the best. Mrs Garcia was an excellent host and made us feel like family rather than visitors. Orange Tree Cottage is truly a little piece of Paradise!!!" Patricia, Inverness, Scotland

Weekend stay at Orange Tree
We had a delightful stay at this little gem of a cottage. If you want to experience the feel of a Andaluza village with the narrow roads, steep grades and inner courtyards - this is it. It was cold several nights so we lit the pellet stove to keep warm. We walked to the most delicious restaurants, drank wonderful coffee and tasted great wine during our stay.
Delightful cottage in a quiet town
The cottage inside and out is as pretty as the pictures. The garden is an absolute delight and the patios offer plenty of opportunity for sun and shade. It was quite cold some nights during our stay and we were grateful for the efficient wood pellet stove. The cottage really is charming, great bedroom and lovely living room. The kitchen is small, with two burners and a microwave, but came well-stocked with plenty of spices and condiments, and excellent cooking utensils. We arrived to a welcome basket of fruit and a bottle of good wine.
Granadilla itself is quiet, a good base since it is near the wonderful beach at El Medano, the Teide park and many places of interest. It is popular with walkers. It also has a good pasteleria, a little street market once a week and two superb restaurants, some of the best food we've had in Tenerife at a fraction of the prices you pay in the resorts (Tasca la Cantera and Tasca Tierras del Sur).
We cannot say enough about how lovely Tita is. She made so welcome and was very helpful with advice on restaurants, and good places to go. We're not surprised that many people return again and again
A Hidden Gem
Really delightful property, run by the equally delightful Mrs Garcia.
If you want something just that wee bit different. give this lovely cottage a try.
Superb enclosed garden, sun terraces, barbeque and reading room.
To put icing on the cake, as well as many close by eateries, there are two really outstanding restaurants, both within easy walking distance.
The perfect location to explore real Tenerife.
Tranquility in Granadilla
The property was exactly as described and the host Tita who lives on site is most helpful. You need a car. The temperature here is at least 3° below the coast. It is a place more suited to couples without children and noise free apart from the church bells. It is also a good location from which to explore southern Tenerife.
We stayed for 5 weeks and enjoyed it very much.
Quiet, relaxing, charming, homely and friendly.
We were welcomed by the owner of the property who was lovely and throughout our stay made sure everything was ok for us and was available if we needed anything. The accomodation was very clean and comfortable with a homely touch. The outside area was private with several seating areas on different levels and sunbeds. Amazing views can be seen from the roof level. It provided us with a quiet base from which we could travel to other areas of the island. A hire car would be handy but we used the bus service and managed easily. The beach at El Medano is well worth a visit. Would go again.
What a fabulous place. Perfect for relaxing and walking. On arrival in the dark we were met at the church and taking to our cottage. On arrival a huge basket of fruit and wine awaited us which we enjoyed with our first meal we bought from the local supermarket . Tita the owner could not of been more helpful and was there if we ever needed her (which we didn't at any time) . The cottage was well equipped and the beds were so comfortable.It wasnt warm enough in the evenings to sit out however we enjoyed the roof top seating area's in the day time . We visited El Medano beach, San Miguel and Las Vegas all which were only 10 minutes drive away and took the TF1 to la Laguna another day which was again only an hours drive. Fabulous break will definitely return . Thank you again Tita

“For an authentic Canarian experience away from the overcrowded and tacky tourist areas.”
Activity and Interests
Tenerife South Airport ('Aeropuerto Reina Sofia') is only 7.1 miles from our cottage. This international airport offers a variety of car hire services – please contact us for our personal favourites!
We strongly recommend you visit the seaside town of El Medano (7.1 miles), which boasts of having the largest natural beaches of Tenerife. If you would rather have quiet beaches mostly popular with the locals and the opportunity to practice your favourite water sport then El Medano is the place for you.
You simply cannot visit Tenerife and not take a trip up to El Teide National Park (23 miles). Named World Heritage Site in 2007, the National Park is the most famous landmark in the Canary Islands and there you can find El Teide, an active volcano (the highest mountain in Spain). Take a cable car to the top and enjoy the truly breath-taking views of the island of Tenerife and the other surrounding Canary Islands.
After booking with us, we will send you our Welcome Pack which contains information on places of interest in the island of Tenerife.
Additionally, if you are interested in biking, climbing, trekking, windsurfing, etc. we can put you in touch with local outdoor activities companies which can arrange these for you!
Any other queries, please do not hesitate to get in touch. We are here to help answer any of your questions.

- Notes on Accommodation: Our cottage is ideal for couples, families, or groups of friends as you can enjoy quality time together in the large rooftop terrace, or the barbecue/chill-out area or the garden. The cottage offers great versatility. At comfortable capacity, it can accommodate 2 adults and 2-3 children. However, we can make it work for larger groups too. Email us to discuss your needs. Outside: The cottage has a stunning secluded garden – which features our lovely centre piece, the orange tree. Our other outdoors facilities are spread out over two other levels: the BBQ/chill out area which includes a big purpose-built grill and comfy sofas is off the garden area; go up the next level, and access our huge rooftop terrace and its multiple sun loungers to take in the overwhelming beauty of the southern region with our breath-taking panoramic views whilst sunbathing. There is a second cottage the other side of the garden. We save this second cottage mostly for family visitors. It is unlikely, but there is a chance that you might have to share some of the outdoors with others. To be honest, the there is a lot of outdoor space. So, we very much doubt you would even see other guests around. But, we thought it best to mention just in case… Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Towel and linen are included and are changed twice a week. Additionally, the cottage is cleaned once a week. All free of charge Other: There are also various other facilities: we have a cot for the little ones, internet access (free WiFi), a BBQ, and garden furniture (tables and chairs, sun loungers, etc.).
