|Mount Tiede, Tenerife, Canary Islands|
It's a short get away and great way to get some sunshine in the middle of winter with only a four and a half hour flight from London. It was fairly mild when we went late January - around 20-22 degrees celsius. We headed for the Costa Adeje on the south coast of Tenerife and pitched up at a lovely hotel - Gran Tacande close to the beach.

At the centre of the island is Mt Tide and an absolute for folk to visit which is in the Tiede National Park, as is the Masca Gorge which has stunning vistas. It is a cliff-hanging ride through the valley to Masca but well worth it.

South Tenerife where we were based is a popular tourist spot that is looking a little dated now but it is a great cheap getaway for the masses. It is heavily populated with older folk and I'm not sure if this is down to the time of year we went, but it was lovely nevertheless. It is difficult to get around on the island - it takes a lot of walking to get anywhere from Adeje if you're like us and want to get out and explore.

Overall it is a great get away winter getaway, if you like this you might like my trip to Hvar in Croatia where the food and wine is excellent and have amazing beaches, ample sailing and islands to explore. This is my blog post about it here.

I've done a separate post on La Nonna restaurant which was a fabulous restaurant not far from our hotel at Gran Tacande.
