Beautiful starry nights, yoga and views create a peaceful getaway in mountainous Icor / Arico

Elska Organics is located on an organic finca in the mountains of Tenerife with views down to the sea and just a 15 minute drive to the closest beaches. Guests can choose from either one of our three caves or a yurt that all sleep 2 people or stay in the casita (a traditional stone house) which can sleep up to 4 guests.

This is a remote area so be warned that the drive is not for the faint-hearted. There are some steep hills and sharp bends to navigate but on arrival you will be congratulated and adored! You can either go self-catering and use the communal kitchen or you can choose the B&B option (for an additional cost).

There are daily yoga classes and there is help if you wish to organise any other activities and adventures such as climbing, surfing, diving and hiking. This is a great spot for a group travelling together for up to 12.

The caves and yurt have 2 bathrooms and a communal kitchen between them. The casita has a queen size bedroom and twin bedroom plus living room, kitchen and bathroom. There is a communal BBQ and free parking.

Guests will have full access to the sauna, the chemical free swimming pool and the BBQ. The finca is spread across a fair bit of land and guests are encouraged to make use of the space. There are plenty of hidden little spots to meditate, paint, sing, dance or laugh like a lunatic...You are encouraged to do whatever makes you happy as this is a remote area - you will not be disturbing anyone!

Enjoy the views and quiet surroundings. There is no light pollution on the island so you can stare up at the most amazing stars every night. The closest villages are a 20 minute drive away so if you want parties and restaurants at your doorstep this might not be the place for you. But if good wine and a bit of peace is what you are after then you could not find a better spot.

Guests will need to have a hire car as the finca is out of the way with no public transport. Also a car is the best way to explore this fabulous island.

One night stay based on 2 sharing ranges from €46-60 depending on which space you choose to stay in. In the winter months if the nights get cold guests are offered heaters, blankets and hot water bottles.

Breakfasts, picnics and evening meals can be ordered for additional cost. They grow their own organic fruit and veg which is available for guests to buy. Enquire about the yoga retreats and when yoga is offered and the fee for this. Pets welcome if they are cat friendly. No children or those with severe mobility issues due to location.
