About Andreas Tinter
We are a married couple at the end of the 40ths and self-employed, we live in the south of Germany and we have fallen in love just 10 years ago with the island Tenerife. Quickly it was clear to us that we want to spend a large part of our spare time on the island. Then, after a long search we have acquired in 2010 the Finca La Hoya and have been restoring it further since then. We ourselves spend many weeks a year with pleasure with friends on the Finca and have furnished this, hence, in such a way, as if we ourselves lived constantly in it. Our present guests have estimated this atmosphere very much.
Andreas Tinter purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2010
Why Andreas Tinter chose El Tanque
Precisely the north west of Tenerife is probably the nicest corner on the whole island. Here, far away from the mass tourism, noise and bustle, you can enjoy the whole beauty of the nature and rest which is being offered by this area.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
Already by entering the Finca you can feel the history which the old walls must already have experienced. Life was certainly not easy in this area earlier and for sure it was laborious. But the people were happy and healthy and lived in harmony with their animals and the nature. Our main goal was to preserve this character but without renouncing of the comfort of our today's civilisation. From an ecological point of view we use solar energy to load the environment so little as possible. Also with the building materials we tried to use where possible domestic products to decorate the Finca so we aim to maintain the ecological balance so positively as possible. Furthermore, power-saving machines or energy-saving lamps are used everywhere where possible to hold the energy consumption on the Finca so slightly as possible.

Frühstück mit Atlantikblick
Wir haben eine schöne Woche auf der Finca verbracht. Die Einrichtung ist schön, die Küche ist gut ausgestattet und die Badezimmer sind sehr gepflegt.
Der Bick auf El Tanque und den Atlantik ist wunderschön.
Wir hatten leider nicht bedacht, dass es im Norden von Teneriffa im Dezember abends recht kühl wird. An Tag drei hatten wir dann endlich heraus gefunden, wann der passende Zeitpunkt ist die Öfen im Haus anzufeuern, um es abends auch warm und gemütlich zu haben. ;)
Wir können die Unterkunft sehr empfehlen!
The house is situated below El Tanque about 12 km west of Icod de los Vinos to 500 meters above sea level on the upper edge of the hamlet of El Tanque Bajo penultimate Finca in a cul de sac surrounded by two other villas, which are also restored are under German management. From the airport in the south of the property can be approached either by highway through the capital Santa Cruz on the eastern and much longer route. Scenic beautiful and interesting but is the western route through the Teno mountains. This route runs mainly along winding Gebirgssträßchen. Although it is much shorter, however, the journey time is nearly equal. Although the property can be reached by bus or taxi, but is always recommended on the island a rental car, since the supply of public transport is sparse. Shopping for daily needs can be found in the place below and above the Finca and can be reached by car in a few minutes. Restaurants and nightlife options can be found in the surrounding villages.
