Los Gigantes has been a celebrated part of the Tenerife coastline since the dawn of time. Yet, it is Paul Ruane, founder of Los Gigantes Properties, and his reputation as a trusted estate agent that has helped promote this pocket of paradise to the sunseekers wanting their own idyllic bolthole on the island.
Paul saw the potential in the majestic volcanic landscape of Tenerife’s southwesterly coast and has spent the last 40 years matching people with their dream home in the sun.
The Crystal luxury development has been in the pipeline for the last 40 years. This modern masterpiece of architecture and interior design is the jewel in the crown for Paul Ruane. The property has been expertly designed to maximise the impact that the awe-inspiring view of the Los Gigantes cliffs provides. Sleek, minimalistic interiors and glass walls let nature be the protagonist.
Yet, luxury can be felt at every turn thanks to the contemporary furnishings, state-of-the-art kitchen and bathrooms designed for pampering yourself. The apartments each have their own private terraces overlooking the cliffs making Crystal the ultimate beachside bolthole for your island getaway.
How it all began
