Currently, it offers 7 upscale apartments in two villas, but more villas and a large park/garden are planned.

The apartments are elegantly decorated, with modern floor to ceiling windows, fully equipped kitchens and ensuite marble bathrooms.

The region

Tenerife has warm climate year round; you can swim in the ocean any day of the year. The south of the island is dry with desert areas and gets really burning hot in the summer. It’s suited only for beach vacation.

Alberto Dorner is located on the north side, with its mild year round climate, ideal for lingering on the pool or beach or going on a hike. The north side of the island is green and lush, with wonderful and unique vegetation, pristine waters, quaint little towns and a rich cultural and historical inheritance.

“To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.” – Bill Bryson

Our goal at Alberto Dorner properties is to help our guests experience the local cultures, lifestyles and environments: climb the volcano, hike the hidden path, taste the secret wines in small wineries, have authentic island meals in that back patio in the mountains that only locals know about, chat with islanders and find out about their lives. We want our guests to discover Tenerife in a relaxed, safe, adventurous atmosphere.

Community: We are part of the local community and want to give back. We hire local staff, work with local contractors and businesses and shop locally. We want to preserve the community and help improve people’s lives. We promote sustainable tourism, with fewer guests but more involved, interested in land and people, respectful with local traditions and culture.

Environment: Our properties are located on the north side of the island, an area with amazing nature, ranging from rainforests in the Anaga mountains to the desert in the Teno nature preserve, from the lava fields on the Teide crater to the volcanic beaches and basalt cliffs on the ocean. We are committed to preserve our environment for future generations, using environment friendly cleaning products and amenities and trying to have a low impact.

Guest: Why we started the Alberto Dorner adventure in the first place. We truly enjoy sharing our love for the island and its people with our guests. We work hard to make our guest’s stay a memorable, authentic experience. We always strive for the highest quality in everything we do, to be friendly, available, helpful and genuinely interested in the guests and their well-being.
