Now we offer the ideal accommodation for individualists, active people and for those who want to stay a little longer.
The Florasol is your vacation spot, very close to the Tigaiga. Here you can enjoy:
A SPACE advantage: the large area of 70 to 100 m2 makes the apartments ideal for a long vacation.
A SUN advantage: all apartments have their terraces to the southwest, which means sunshine from late morning until sunset.
A PANORAMA advantage: from all apartments you can enjoy a wonderful view of the swimming pool, in our subtropical garden and on the highest mountain in Spain, Pico de Teide.
A RELAX advantage: we are surrounded by a lush subtropical gardens, in a relatively quiet residential quarter of the otherwise bustling city of Puerto de la Cruz. No main street in front of the building disturbs the holiday enjoyment and yet about 10 minutes downhill to the old town or 15 minutes walk to beach.
A PERSONAL advantage: because of the small number of only 29 apartments and a reduced number of guests, a courteous and friendly team in a soothing atmosphere.

Tenerife – 22.02.2016
– Pictures and videos of the thick blanket of snow that covered the entire Teide National Park made the national headlines, as did the news that the Civil Guard’s Mountain Rescue Unit were forced to take to skis for the first time to negotiate summit roads and trails in search of people thought to have been stranded. The arrival of the snow at the height of the cold snap that hit the island at the end of last week prompted the authorities to close the roads leading up to Mt Teide due to the hazardous conditions and sub-zero temperatures. Dozens of day-trippers who ignored the closures and made their way to the Park, in some cases driving along forest trails, were ordered out of the area by officers and repeated calls were made urging people to stay away to avoid mishaps.
