We do not have any bad comments, however some people might have privacy issues, as showroom and toilet are based outside.
Casas Bioclimaticas ITER is located at the base of Montana Pelada in the centre of Institute for Technology and Renewable Energy.
The 24 villas are all designed and built in different styles.
This was our second stay and this time we stayed in casa El Pueblo for two weeks from 11th of April 2015.
Our villa was built from volcanic rock and wood and it is single dwelling. Villa was spacious with substantially equipped kitchen, living area, study area (which can be used as a second lounge as there is a large settee with comfortable cushions), two single bedrooms and one on suite double bedroom. As the concept of this villa is a town square, with a local way of life in its smaller scale, with a tree and the streets around the square, the bedrooms are positioned outside (around square, as shops). If you are sleeping in either of the single bedrooms, toilet and shower room are positioned outside between two bedrooms. Rooms are provided with blinds, shutters or both. There is specious seating area with table, chairs, sun loungers and barbecue area. At first glance you may feel that this villa is slightly exposed, however we hardly seen any other guests over the two weeks of our holiday.
The whole area is very tranquil and perfect if you want escape from a hustle and bustle of a city. However, you need to bear in mind that you are staying in the middle of a wind farm and 10 minutes drive from Tenerife del Sur International airport. We noticed the wind turbine noise and noise from the planes on our first day however this noise soon becomes part of the background.
There are two pebbly and one sand beach 5-10 minutes walk from the villas and there are three supermarkets around 5-10 minuets drive from the complex. Also there is laundry near the visitors centre. Car is the must have if you want to explore local areas, however I believe taxi can be organised through Casas Bioclimaticas ITER.
