  • Description


    My husband (Spanish) and me (German) want to restore an old Canarian house into a small, family run Bed & Breakfast. Therefore we need your help! The house is located in the historic centre of Buenavista del Norte, an idyllic village in the north-westerly-most point of the Island of Tenerife, Canary Islands, surrounded by nature, with mountains of more than 1.300 m and the Atlantic Ocean at 2.5 km distance.

    We are nature lovers and mountain fans who like good food, good music and the company of nice people from all over the world. Our Bed & Breakfast will be for travelers who like all kind of mountain and outdoor sports and want to rest well after an active day in the nature.

    If you like the tranquility, a relaxed atmosphere and a good climate during all the year, this is the right place for you. The village offers all amenities (restaurants, bars, supermarket, gym, etc.) and is well connected with the rest of the island.

    The house has two floors: We will live in the upper floor and the basic floor will be converted into the Bed & Breakfast with five double rooms, two bathrooms and a shared kitchen.
