L1000718VILLAGE ABOVE THE CLOUDS
Vilaflor is the highest village on the island (1400 meters). Located on the Southern slope of Teide, it looks down onto a ‘sea of clouds’ most of the time. Locals like to call it “living above the clouds”. There is (almost) constant sunshine in Vilaflor, and, vice versa, incredible night skies to be seen… Amateur-astronomers love to come up here from all over the island, and the even local hotel has a good-size telescope on its roof. Many┬álocals make a living from potato-farming, and currently everyone is busy harvesting.
