Just got back from a weeks stay at the Bellavista.
We had the most relaxing time and really made the most of the peace and tranquillity of the views and surrounding area.
Hot tub was great and used the bbq aswel on one occasion to cook some fantastic local produce brought from St Mateo down the road.
Two bits of advice.
1. As the owner states, definitely you will need a car that is not too big as you have to park quite close to the neighbiuring house wall. This was not a problem for us in an Opal crossland, but any bigger this would of been difficult. So get at least a 1.4Ltr engine to get up the moutain roads but keep to a smallish car. Cicar rentalls are fantastic in the airport. Email them before you travel couldn't fault them.
The roads are windy just take it easy a little beep before bends is good for the last stretch to the house the locals all do it and they're very understanding.
2. We were lucky enough to have 3 lovely warm days up the mountains the rest were quite wet so ventured to the south of the island for warmer weather. In the evenings we found it does get quite cold this time of year. There are some electric heaters and some lovely big warm blankets but we found the log burner stove to be a real treat and made the house all that more cosy. Logs can be brought from St Mateo 10mins down the road.
We had a lovely stay in the mountains and would highly recommend the place for anyone looking to either adventure around, relax or just take in some of the most amazing scenery.
We also visited Las Palmas during our stay and fell in love with the little town called Teror the Sunday morning market was great fun!
Thanks for a great stay in your very clean, cosy mountain retreat! We have some stunning photos from the views from the house that will live on as memories.

The property was very clean, spacious and well presented.
My only minor criticism is that it property and garden only has the sun for the middle of the day due to being up a steep valley. This meant the evenings were cold in the property, as it doesn't have central heating and on returning from our days out we were unable to have a beer in the sun as the sun had already dropped behind the hills. We therefore tended to enjoy the early evenings in Agaete which remained warm until the sunset.
