  1. Amazing work you guys have done with your books.I don’t supppose you have a guide with small, private b&b’s? Tha is one way I’d love to do Tenerife: just stay with local families and hop from one place to another.

    • Thanks Graeme. We don’t, sorry. But if you want a more immersive experience check if there’s a ‘pensión’ in any of the places you fancy staying. Another way we particularly like is to stay at small, family run rural hotels. There’s a good choice of them on the island, usually in scenic areas.
