Explore the beauty of Vilaflor
The gorgeous Vilaflor is situated in the south central part of the Spanish island of Tenerife. It is set over 4500ft above sea level, making it the highest municipality in Spain. The area is beautiful and idyllic, with leafy forests and greenery making it a quiet and refreshing place to sit back and enjoy the sunshine. Vilaflor’s height makes it a great place for sports – extreme or a little calmer. With the freshest air ever in your lungs, who knows what you could be capable of!
Relax and unwind on holidays to Vilaflor
Vilaflor is beautiful, relaxing and unspoilt. The weather is gorgeous all year round, and from its vantage point high above the Atlantic Ocean it has the best views around. The walking routes, or hiking if you’re feeling a little more energetic, take you through the area’s preserved natural landscapes, like the bizarre but impressive volcanic formations Paisaje Lunar and the mineral springs of Fuente Alta. It’s a really romantic spot for couples to take a stroll and enjoy the nature. For a more adventurous pastime, the area is great for rock climbing, paragliding and golf, and you can’t beat taking in the views by horseback.
Once you’ve had your fill of nature, head back into the city and soak up the traditional Spanish feel of the cobbled streets, plazas and classic architecture. Browse for some souvenirs at the local craft shops for authentic ceramic and woodcarvings. There are also plenty of great cafés and restaurants. Vilaflor has some of the best food around, such as the local cheese and regional wine. Chill out on a breezy rooftop terrace at the end of a day’s walking, and sip a cool drink as you watch the sun set over the Atlantic.
Vilaflor is perfect for escaping the busy Tenerife, but if you fancy a lively evening out, close by is the resort of Playa de Las Americas. There are huge, sandy beaches for sunbathing and good spots for surfers. Famous for its buzzing nightlife, the evenings kick off at ‘the strip’, Las Veronicas, with an array of bars and clubs.
