Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain - A Place in the Sun

2020 / Tenerife Canary Islands Spain Jasmine Harman on 3 September 2020

Tenerife Canary Islands Spain Jasmine Harman

Steve and Jane from Eastbourne have been together for 16 years and are now buying their very first property together on the beautiful Canary island of Tenerife. With the help of Jasmine Harman they’re looking for a townhouse with some outside space along the northern coast where they can enjoy holidays with their 5 children and perhaps relocate permanently to in the next few years. They have a budget of £200,000 so will Jasmine be able to find them their dream home?

Tenerife

Why buy here?

Tenerife is the largest and most populated of the Canary islands, to get to its North coast its best to take a direct flight to Tenerife South, a 40 minute drive away. It really is an island of two halves and although the golden beaches in the south are where most of the tourists flock to, we’re house hunting in the lesser known north. Here its much greener, less busy and has those famous volcanic black sands. The north is home to the island’s capital, Santa Cruz. And also La Laguna, considered to be one of the most beautiful towns in Tenerife, because of its churches and buildings dating back to the 15th Century. With all this on offer North Tenerife really is the perfect place to quietly discover the island’s traditions and culture whilst also grabbing a tan on the beach!
