There is so much to see and do on a Tenerife villa holiday. Referred to as 'The Island of Eternal Spring', the wonderfully diverse island of Tenerife has been attracting holidaymakers for decades.
Tenerife is the largest of the Canary Islands and is home to excellent beaches perfectly tailored towards family holidays, as well as dramatic inland scenery of lush forests and the impressive Mount Teide – the highest point in Spain.
Our villas in Tenerife are located in the Southern half of the island, in the well-established resorts of Costa Adeje with its boutique shopping and buzzing nightlife, and the calmer Playa de la Arena, with its beachside restaurants and black volcanic sand.
One of the most beloved destinations worldwide, Tenerife, is waiting to be explored. Our villas to rent in Tenerife will take you closer than ever to all the marvels this unforgettable Canary Island hosts, from national parks and hiking trails to beautiful beaches and the vibrant night scene.
All this, along with year-round sunshine, makes a villa holiday in Tenerife an experience like no other. The coldest month in Tenerife is January, but even then, it has an average temperature of 16.5°C, so you'll never need a winter coat!
Whether you want to marvel at the stunning beaches or experience the rugged landscape, Tenerife has so much to offer.
Holidaymakers flock to Tenerife's pristine coastline each year for a good reason! Our Tenerife villas are located south and west of this stunning volcanic island, where various amenities and water sports accompany long stretches of golden sand beaches.
Las Vistas Beach
Located in the popular resort of Los Cristianos, Las Vista Beach is ideal for families, as it has all the amenities you'd expect. With sun loungers everywhere, inflatables in the water and shallow areas for children, this beach will offer hours of family fun.
Tourists flock to the breezy town of El Medano to enjoy water sports, including wind and kite surfing. It's also an excellent place for families, but it does get busy. If you're looking for a remote, private beach, this isn't the one for you - but it offers plenty of activities.
Playa la Arena
For something a little unorthodox, visit the volcanic black sands on Playa de la Arena's beach, which is one of the best and cleanest. It never fails to impress, and the dramatic black sands are perhaps the most Instagram-worthy in Tenerife.
If you prefer the finer things, you won't find a more luxurious beach than in Playa Torviscas. Its golden sands and crystal blue sea make for the perfect setting and swim in the calm waters.
Nightlife in Tenerife
Take your pick from sophisticated evenings and animated nights out in some of Tenerife's most popular resorts. Enjoy late-night dining followed by a cocktail or two in the chic resort of Costa Adeje, or watch live bands and flamenco dancing in nearby Playa de Las Americas.
The island provides so much variety when it comes to its nightlife, which includes traditional Canarian customs, that a villa holiday in Tenerife won't be complete without a deep dive into all it has to offer after dusk.
Tramps is one of the most beloved nightclubs in the Canary Islands, with tourists flocking to the spot every year. Featuring two impressive rooms, you can dance the night away to hip-hop and house music or enjoy the pop room for music from the 1980s to 2000s.
Blanco Bar is more of an entertainment venue than a nightclub, as cabaret and comedy acts also perform there. Of course, you can also enjoy the traditional music experience and sip on delicious cocktails throughout the night.
Kaluna Beach Club
If partying on the beach is your idea of heaven, you'll love the Kaluna Club. It's ideal for groups or hen and stag parties, as you can take advantage of cocktails and dancing on the white sandy beaches.
Dreamers Cabaret Bar
There are plenty of spots for families to eat and drink during the evening, but a top choice is Dreamers Cabaret Bar. It has everything you'd expect in terms of entertainment and shows sports.
Food and Drink in Tenerife
Local markets occur weekly in many of Tenerife's towns and villages, where you can stock up on fresh vegetables, meat and fish to cook a family feast at your Tenerife villa.
You can sample traditional Spanish food such as paella, tapas and fresh seafood at most restaurants, and even try some of the local Canarian dishes such as Mojo Sauce and Papas Arrugadas.
As a top British tourist spot, you can also expect plenty of Indian restaurants and buffets at affordable prices.
The Hard Rock Cafe
The Hard Rock Cafe is always a fan favourite in major cities worldwide, so it's always a winner for families. Expect classic American food, great prices, and a fun-filled atmosphere.
Lajar de Bello
One of the more high-end options, this restaurant features quality food from talented chefs. There are also plenty of vegetarian and vegan options, making it the perfect place to treat yourself.
Masia del Mar
The restaurant with stunning ocean views is one of the top spots in Tenerife. Featuring a range of Tapas dishes and seafood specialities, you'll experience the authentic taste of Mediterranean cuisine.
History and Culture in Tenerife
Tenerife is an island of two halves, with most tourist resorts resting on the south and eastern coastlines. Although many adore Tenerife's golden sands, the island's inner scenery is no less impressive, dominated by Mount Teide – the highest point in Spain.
To soak up the history and culture during your Tenerife villa holiday, we recommend visiting the island's capital Santa Cruz de Tenerife, in the north, with historic buildings and winding Old Town streets.
Punta del Hidalgo
Get close to the Anaga Mountains and witness the true beauty of nature in this magical coastal town. With its gorgeous landscape and coves to explore, there's something for everyone.
Parque Nacional del Teide
Tenerife isn't just about beaches and partying; it's also an infamous UNESCO site. Teide National Park spans over ten miles and sits 3800 metres above sea level. The volcanic crater is a true marvel, and a cable car ride takes you to the highest point, where you can appreciate impressive views.
San Cristóbal de La Laguna
If you love visiting old towns, then San Cristóbal de La Laguna is definitely worth your time. It doesn't have any beaches, so it's ideal for escaping the tourists and enjoying an authentic part of Tenerife's history.
Featuring a range of historic buildings, including churches, you can walk down the cobbled streets and explore some public buildings.
Fun family trip options
Tenerife is a fantastic place for families, and you'll find plenty to do with young children. Our Tenerife villas are close to the action of major resorts such as Puerto de la Cruz and tourist attractions.
Siam Park was voted top of the world's best water parks, so you can rest assured that a day out here will provide hours of fun. Young children can enjoy slides and activities in the Lost City area, while teenagers have the option of numerous rides.
Better still, the adults can relax on the beach or join in the fun.
The Jungle Park offers a free bus service for tourists and is close to the Los Cristianos resort. Large families can travel through the park together, looking at big cats, sea lions and birds of prey.
There are also animal shows that run throughout the day, and options for food and drink.
Whale-watching boat trips
The beautiful island of Tenerife is also home to sea life, including whales. One of the most popular trips is a whale-watching boat tour. The whole family will enjoy looking for whales in their natural habitat, and you can appreciate the beautiful views too.
