Detached villa home swap

Our detached villa is set in the quiet upmarket residential village of Chayofa, two miles inland from the resort of Los Cristainos. Chayofa has a good variety of restaurants and entertainment options and is the home to many different nationalities. Our villa is south facing and has panoramic views to sea and mountains. The terrace has, sun beds and a dining table and chairs. The front garden has two palm trees, a flame tree, a range of tropical plants and tables and chairs.
A gated quiet, private, uncrowded heated pool with plenty of sunbeds is some 10 metres from our back gate. The villa is also equipped with both internet and all main English TV channels, TV catch up and some sport channels.
A small independent apartment, sleeps two, is part of our main property. This is primarily available when the main villa is being used. Great value rental if required.

About the location

A quiet suburb, about two miles from Los Cristainos. Idea for a relaxing break. Use of Villa garden and washing/drying facilities. Excellent good value choice of bars and restaurants within easy walking distance. Heated pool with many sun beds always available. Chayofa is a lovely quiet area, some 2 miles from the nightlife of Los Cristianos and its yellow sand beaches, but with its own village identity. The village has an upmarket French restaurant, a large Spanish owned restaurant, with lots of attractive open spaces with almost nightly musicians, serenading diners.
For locals and holidaymakers missing the UK there is a lively British pub with a weekly quiz night and band night. For those wanting to taste the Spanish tapas, there is a bar/bistro run by Cubans. There is a small supermarket within the village.
The Canarian village of La Camella (about 1mile away) has a good range of shops and bars and can be reached either by road or a pretty walk across the natural landscape of Tenerife. There are lots of pretty villages along the coast and inland, many of which have few tourist visitors. The highest mountain in Spain, Mt Teide, and its National Park is some 30 miles away. This is an area not to be missed, by any visitor.
The climate in Tenerife, particularly in the south, is outstanding with an average winter temperature of 21 C and an average of 7 or 8 hours of sun per day. At the same time the summers are not too hot, with an average of 28C at the hottest time of the year. The yellow sand beaches of Los Cristianos are suitable for all ages and shelve gently.
Tenerife South airport is serviced by several low cost airlines, including Ryanair, Easy Jet, Monarch and Jet2 from most parts of the UK, at low prices, especially out of school term time. Our villa is 25minutes from the airport but has no airport noise. Car rentals and petrol are cheap.
