Parador de Cañadas del Teide, Tenerife – Traditional-style mountain lodge (3*)
The Parador de Las Cañadas del Teide sits at the base of the Mount Teide volcano on the island of Tenerife, the largest of the Canary Islands.
Built in a hunting lodge style, the rustic and cosy interiors along with its large stone fireplaces provide a warm retreat in this mountainous terrain. The bedrooms reflect the Parador’s style with use of dark wood and traditional furnishings.
You can enjoy the panoramic views from the Parador across the wild volcanic mountains and slopes covered with the indigenous Canary Island pine are. The altitude also means that air conditioning is not necessary, and guests can use the heated swimming pool, gymnasium and sauna to keep warm on colder days.
The Parador’s restaurant is a great place to sample traditional Canarian dishes including Puchero Canario (meat stew with chickpeas and vegetables) and Conejo al salmorejo (wild rabbit cooked in wine, almonds and aromatic herbs).
