Step back in time at this historic Tenerife villa that holds centuries of memories from its time as a monastery. Located in the town of Tacoronte, this 17th century villa offers traditional Canary Island architecture alongside ample gardens and outdoor sitting areas. This multi-level home is sure to stun, with recent restorations preserving a sense of age and history. Dark wooden ceiling beams, old-fashioned lamps and cabinets, and touches like a small wine cellar area and an outdoor furnace, are things you just don't see anymore in many homes. At the same time, modern furnishings and appliances are replete throughout, with the kitchen boasting a bright green apple theme that makes for a nice change of pace.
The downstairs living room has plenty of sofas and armchairs for relaxing by the fireplace, as well as a DVD player and a flatscreen cable TV. On the same floor, you'll find the cellar in a nice sitting area, and a study with a small private library. And upstairs, there's an additional sitting room with yet another fireplace!
If you're in the mood for sightseeing, the center of town is less than a mile away! As rich in history as your new getaway is, don't ignore the culture surrounding you in Tacoronte! From the town's own historic quarter to sites like the Santuario del Cristo shrine, there's plenty to learn about this centuries-old settlement. There's just as much to do outside the city, as well, like touring the island's famous vineyards or visiting beaches like La Arena and Mesa del Mar. There's even a natural swimming pool in the form of El Pris, whose stunning vista is found just under five miles north!
