Casa Matos ( Garden House ) is a traditional rural house dating from 1850 and completely restored, perfect for spending a comfortable holiday in Gran Canaria. We have taken care to keep the interesting heirloom of our grandparents and created a warm and pleasant atmosphere. It is finely decorated with traditional elements and antiques: pictures, paintings, furniture, handicrafts. An ideal place for resting and walking through the various paths in the area, which border fertile fields.
The beautiful rural environment of the house will provide good feelings and new experiences: enjoy the sweet fragrances from the garden, roses, orange & lemon blossoms (azahar), jasmine, cheerful colours of flowers and butterflies flitting about, happy little frogs croaking and nice birds chirping on trees. Breakfast or lunch in the porch area eating `al fresco´ facing the sunny garden is a delight not to be missed. The courtyard with outdoor furniture provides a calm and friendly place to sip your favourite drink and relax in style.
This house is located in a beautiful place called "Arbejales" (4 km from Teror), in an idyllic and leafy valley of agricultural tradition, inhabited from the 16th century. In Sagrado Corazón (a charming little village) 400 meters away from the house, there is a beautiful old church, built in 1916. Less than 3 miles away is the attractive and historic town of Teror, unchanged for centuries, with a fine wide street of colonial houses with ornately carved wooden balconies.
The Osorio Farm Estate constitutes Teror's most exquisite natural setting. Part of the legendary Doramas Rural Park contains one of the most important forests on the island. In the beautiful wilderness, hikers and lovers of nature will find many interesting trails to explore in Osorio, on their way to the summit. For lovers of the sea, the honey coloured Playa de las Canteras, one of the best and longest city beaches in the world, is just 40 minutes away. So you can combine nature with a beach and bathing holiday.
Besides this country house I manage booking of 30 other lovely villas in Gran Canaria.
