As most people think of sun,sea and sand when they think of Tenerife, I suppose  the heading ' Rural Retreats' seems kind of strange on a blog all about Tenerife, but you will find a 'Rural Hotel' in most villages on the Island.

They are in the main kept traditional with modern facilities, you can stay for one night or the duration of your holiday, each #RuralHotel is different, so you would need to check when you book.

They are full of character, peaceful and normally away from the maddening crowds, where you can enjoy the countryside and scenery, great places to stay whether you enjoy walking, hiking, taking car trips around the island or just sitting and enjoying a glass of wine.

The beauty of Tenerife is - if you need the beaches and the sea they are never far away, no matter where you stay, you don't even need a car as the Titsa bus service is so good.

FINCA SALAMANCA  is a good example, on the south coast, just below the town of Güimar and 10 minute car ride / bus ride to  the Puerto de Güimar where there are Restaurants, bars café's along the promenade.

It's set in it's own Finca, so there is plenty to explore and numerous places to sit out and relax. There is really no need to leave the finca as there is lovely restaurant.

Horse Riding in Tenerife

Horse riding in #Tenerife is very popular for residents and visitors alike. There are quite a few companies offering Horse and pony trekking on the Island, I have listed a few below.

Some of them offer a livery service for those who want to keep their horse or pony here and there are gymkhana's  around the island at the various stables.

Horses are well loved and cared for on the Island and are often seen at the local romerias (Fiesta's) competing in all kinds of competitions to show off the rider and horse skills or just there to be looked at with their proud owners.

It is yet another way on which to see the Island. Which ever side of the island you are staying it's well worth going to the other part of the Island as the scenery is so different.
