Environment and situation:
El Atajo is located in the old centre of the town of Chio, surrounded by a calm, friendly and family environment. The house receives direct and strong sunlight in all its rooms, achieving the impression of a unique peacefulness. According to our elders, El Atajo was the first school of the village. It was built in the 18th century, a time when it was generally known as "Casa de las Leopoldinas", the first town teachers.
One of the roads leading to Teide runs through here, an ideal starting point towards the mountains, to make excursions around the islands or mountain bike rides. Guests will also find many supermarkets, restaurants, pharmacy, banks, etc.
