About the property

Excellent price / performance ratio: Comfort and relaxation guaranteed

The apartment, country-style La Alpispa offers a unique environment in the vicinity of the park Doramas in Valle Seco. Comfort and style go hand in hand in an accommodation that is not only adapted to guests with different physical disability, but also for those who are simply looking for a place for a real retreat from everyday life.

The house was bought by its owners in 1997 and is in the late 19th Century was built. The oldest part of the building where the stables are (Alpendre referred in the Canary Islands) and the barn, and the courtyard have been completely renovated according to modern standards of comfort and quality. The Alpispa created consisting of La Posada, apartment of 50 m2 with kitchen, bathroom with shower, living room and bedroom; the barn, a simple additional double room with WC, and El Porch, private bar of 30 m2 exclusively for our guests with multimedia, screen and hi-fi system (all of this is rented separately). These three units are connected by a terrace which has a dining table for six. Located next to the terrace there is a large courtyard (110 m2) with two levels, one level with BBQ and one with a small gas grill (charcoal or gas are available to purchase). This covered area features a countertop with sink and all necessary utensils for grilling and you can enjoy a meal outside the home.

At a lower level, we find the garage and a property of 2 000 m2, which is completely isolated from the outside and neighboring farms and planted with numerous fruit trees, avocado, apple and pear trees, plum trees, medlars, nectarines, peaches, lemons, oranges and tangerines ... The location of the property has made it possible to create long beds of flowers, medicinal plants and herbs; There are two lawn areas, one with a fountain and a bank, where you can enjoy the sound of water and the birdsong of the many birds that live in the trees of the farm. Here are a swimming pool of 10 x 5 meters installed with the adjoining property, to bask in the months of May to October. Between November and April, this area is to play a sports field at badminton, volleyball, football or mini Basket - trotdem you can sunbathe, thou turn away the 6 chairs and there is a comfortable outdoor shower. Right near you find a room that we have called "chill-out" (Retiro) because it provides space for relaxation and recreation with a two-seater hot tub (with gas heating in the fall and winter), a bicycle trainers and a small couch to read or just enjoy the sounds of nature and relax.

Part of the large estate is occupied at certain seasons of the owners. Since both areas of the property are separated complet, complet with separate entrances, they will not cross paths, not even notice that the owners are present. Unless you consciously seek contact and enjoy getting to know the owners. The privacy in the use and enjoyment of the facilities on the part of the guests of Villa-La-Alpispa is vollstens guaranteed. A possible encounter with the apartment owner is limited to garden care and maintenance of automatic irrigation, should this be necessary. Adding remains that if guests and owners residing at the same time on the premises, the Bestitzer only too happy are willing to provide information about the environment or otherwise guests will find in every several possible way with words and deeds. So if you are interested in consulting and knowledge of the place, do not hesitate and hold a little chat with the owners of this beautiful part of the island of Gran Canaria. The owners speak English very well, for requests for reservations to German, please use an email in order to prevent misunderstandings.

The extensive network of trails, roads, recreational areas, information centers and all that far away from the hustle and bustle of the populated cities in the island, make this area a unique place for a holiday in close contact with nature. After a tour of the island by car you get home with the feel of an authentic natural and cultural experience of the island of Gran Canaria.

Best pick you'll have :)

  • 5 of 5

Guys, you're the best choice we've made on Gran Canaria.If you're looking for more nature and less hotels and commercial sand beaches, barbequing, chilling on the terrace, playing basketball or pool volleyball (awesome) in the huge front yard infront of your lovely rural house, it's the place for you. Also, because it's in the mountains (but still just 15 min drive from Las Palmas) the weather was great, it was sunny almost all the time while Las Palmas for example was covered in clouds. You definately neead to rent a car (i suggest Europacar for rent, we took Gold car and it was way too expensive). I suggest one day you take the mountain road through the island because there's a lot to see. One minute you're on the tropical beach and sand dunes in Maspalomas and an houe later you're at 2000m on a beautiful mountain overlooking Tenerife island. At Alpispa you have all you need for an awesomw bbq, a very cool bathroom (even a urinal, the guys were amazed :)), all the kitchen equipment and even a bar!! just note that during the evenings it's cold if you're sitting outside, so we were covered in blankets. At the end, the hosts are extremly friendly, funny and helped us with all the trip planning, thanks for that, we've seen almost all the places you've suggested. So, if you're a cupple of friends or family with kids and looking for a cool, warm, homey place to stay while on Gran Canaria, La Alpispa is the right place. We'll definetly pick the same place again. Have fun! Best regards from Lovorka and the Croatian crew!

Cozy and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

There were five of us and we had a great time there. Thanks to the owner of this homey place! Eloise and David were friendly and extremely helpful.

It was located in a beautiful mountainous area. For this reason, the weather changed dramatically (morning is cloudy, but sunny in the daytime). This was something we did not expect, but all in all, enjoyed this moody weather (this weather was probably due the season).

We rented a car during the stay and visited Las Palmas many times (relatively easy access) and a charming nearby village Teror. Teror was such a magical place and we bought a lot of cheese from a Sunday market.

There were many activities we could do in this place. Some of us went for a good long walk, we played badminton in the front yard, barbequed fresh sea food, and sunbathed. There is a giant avocado tree in the garden. We picked up some and ate them. They were the best avocado I'd ever eaten in my life!

It was a poetic and very inspiring place and we can recommend to all of our friends and families. - J.K. & J.N.

Owner's Response: It has been a pleasure to deal with this excellent group of young sportsmen. Since the very first moment they proved to be respectful and kind and the way they made use of the facilities and the equipment of the house confirmed our certainties. Winter is a changeable season and it was a pity that they could not enjoy those characteristic bright blue days of the Winter season here in the MIdlands of Gran Canaria every single day of their stay, but instead they could discover how these Atlantic Islands can bring you all four seasons in one day gifting you with time for sunbathing, for folding and unfolding your raincoat just in a while, or listening to all the Spring birds sing their symphony for you on our garden in the middle of the Winter. Thankfully we are not far from all the tourist amenities and they could discover the island in depth and pick what they wanted every time without big effort. We are really happy to hear that you had a wonderful time amongst us as this is our biggest laitmotif when renting our property. Thanks for sharing it with the rest of the world ; ))) We will be delighted to host you again on a future occasion. With Love Eloise and family

Sehr empfehlenswert!

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten als Eltern mit unserem 12-jährigen Sohn einen wirklich schönen Aufenthalt hier. Die Gastgeber, David und Eloise, sind überaus freundlich und hilfsbereit. Die Wohnung selber ist sehr zweckmäßig eingerichtet, aber auch interessant und geschmackvoll gestaltet. Der kleine Sportplatz (jetzt im Winter) auf dem Grundstück war zum Toben, Fußball- und Federballspielen ideal für Vater und Sohn. Und die Lage in den (nördlichen) Bergen von Gran Canaria in einem sehr grünen Umfeld ist sehr schön!

Die Wohnung ist wirklich zu empfehlen!

Séjour au calme à Grande Canarie, loin du tourisme de masse !

  • 4 of 5

Séjour agréable de 4 nuits à la Finca Alpispa. David fait son possible pour vous satisfaire, l'accueil est excellent. La maison est grande, bien équipée, propre ; les extérieurs et la piscine sont très agréables. Quel bonheur de cueillir ses oranges sur l'arbre soi-même ! La maison est située dans la région montagneuse du nord de l'île, loin du tourisme de masse de Grande Canarie. A savoir toutefois : le climat y est plus frais, couvert et humide que dans le sud. La maison est de ce fait très humide. Les propriétaires habitent l'étage supérieur (ils étaient partis lors de notre séjour). Les différentes pièces de la maison ne communiquent pas entre elles ; la chambre des enfants est ainsi éloignée de celle des parents. Si vous souhaitez un séjour paisible dans un environnement verdoyant, c'est là qu'il faut aller !

Gastfreundlichkeit und beste Lage für Erkundungen

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus liegt in bester Ausgangslage für weitere Unternehmungen im Norden mit dem Auto. Die wichtigen Punkte wie Las Palmas, Agaete, Roque Nublo und der Flughafen sind ca. 30 Min entfernt. Die meisten Wanderrouten durch grüne Wälder, Täler und Schluchten sind schnell erreichbar. Praktisch war auch der Parkplatz auf dem Grundstück.

Auf der Terrasse befindet sich ein Steingrill, der bei unserem Aufenthalt jeden Tag zum Mittag genutzt wurde.

Im Garten sind Avocado-Bäume, Orangenbäume und Mandarinenbäume, von denen wir uns bedienen durften. Vielen Dank dafür, David. In unseren Breiten gibt es ja keine reif gepflückten Avocados und Zitrusfrüchte.

Es gibt wie auf den Fotos ersichtlich, einen schönen Platz für Volleyball oder Badminton. Und zudem ist auch der Whirlpool nutzbar für ein entspanntes Bad.

Vor allem hat mich David's Gastfreundschaft gefallen. Er hat uns gleich am ersten Tag, weil wir ihn wegen Geschäften fragten, mit zu seinem Obst- und Gemüsehändler des Vertrauens mitgenommen und uns gleich die nähere Umgebung gezeigt. Auch im weiteren Verlauf hat uns David jederzeit geholfen bei Fragen.

Vielen Dank für alles.

Viele Grüße aus Deutschland
