Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday chateau / country house in Teror - Casa Matos

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.

Schönes Haus in ländlicher, ruhiger Lage

  • 4 of 5

Der sehr sympathische Eigentümer José hat uns nett empfangen und freundlicherweise ein paar Lebensmittel besorgt, da wir sonntags angereist sind. Das Haus ist hochwertig, liebevoll und mit teils antiken Möbeln eingerichtet. Besonders hübsch ist der kleine Außensitzplatz im Obergeschoss. Die Küche ist im Wohnbereich integriert und gut ausgestattet. Was uns etwas gestört hat: In der Küche war dauerhaft ein unangenehmer, intensiver Geruch bemerkbar, der sich auch durch dauerhaftes Lüften oder Duftkerzen nicht beseitigen ließ. Irgendwie muffig oder ähnlich wie Weihrauch, vielleicht von einem Möbelstück? Wir sind nicht dahinter gekommen, wo die Ursache lag. Die geschmackvoll eingerichteten Schlafzimmer mit je einem kleinen Fenster sind gemütlich, nur die Beleuchtung ist schwach, da größtenteils unschöne Energiesparlampen brennen. Die Matratzen sind ok, das Bettzeug für die Höhenlage, besonders aber im Winter/Frühjahr, viel zu dünn: Trotz mehrerer Decken und Elektroheizkörper im Zimmer fing man nachts im Bett an zu frösteln. Bei Sonne und Wärme ist das Haus gewiss ein herrlicher Ort, an dem man gerne den blühenden Garten und den Gesang der Vögel genießt. Da wir das Pech hatten, dass die Region Teror die meiste Zeit unserer Urlaubswoche von kaltem Nieselregen eingehüllt wurde, war es nicht gerade gemütlich. Deshalb mussten wir bis auf den letzten Tag zum Wandern leider immer in den Süden der Insel zur Sonne flüchten. Im Sommer ist Casa Matos bestimmt ein herrlicher Ort zum Entspannen und Wandern. Im Winter oder bei kühler Witterung würde ich eine südlichere Region der Insel bevorzugen

Owner's Response: Vielen Dank für Ihre Bewertung und Beurteilung unseres Landhauses. Es war eine Freude, Sie als Gäste zu haben, und ich bin froh, dass Sie Ihren Aufenthalt im Allgemeinen und das Haus und Garten gern genossen. Wir haben festgestellt , dass der Geruch aus dem Fallrohr der Küche der Waschbecken kam und mit Saugglocke (zur Abflussreinigung) entfernt wurde. Leider war die Woche Ihres Aufenthalt sehr kalt in Gran Canaria auch einige Tage vor Ihre Ankunft hatte es in den Bergen geschneit (was selten vorkommt) und so das Gefühl von Feuchtigkeit war grosser. Dann werden wir noch für das Schlafzimmer eine Federdecke kaufen damit mehr angenehm und warm zu schlafen wird. Danke und vielleicht bis nächsten Mal

Erholsamer Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Gemütlich auf dem Liegestuhl liegen und sich an dem individuell und blumenreich angelegten Garten erfreuen, die Ruhe genießen und sich bei Bedarf in eine gemütliche, saubere Unterkunft zurückziehen.. was will man im Urlaub mehr?

Durch den eingezäunten und abschließbaren Garten auch für aktive Kinder geeignet.

Wir drei habe die 10 Tage in der Finca sehr genossen, sehr empfehlenswert!!

Danke Jose für die gute Zeit!

Yvonne, Simon & Justus

Beautiful spacious house in the hills of Teror.

  • 4 of 5

We've had a very pleasant stay in this nice house for 10 nights. The house has a beautiful garden with lemon-trees and flowering plants. The two patio's down and upstairs are nice places to sit back and relax and enjoy the garden, fields and birds around the house. Jose is a very generous and kind host. He has send us a good route description by mail and we asked him some questions in advance. Jose, speaks english well and he welcomed us and showed us the house and gave a lot of nice tips for exploring the neighborhood. Due to the location in the hills on the northern part of the island the air-temperature is always some degrees lower than at sea-level, the air more humid and more chance for building up clouds. We've had some short showers during our stay in march and low temperatures especially during the evening and night. However there are electric heaters in every room available, including the bathroom. Unfortunately there's no internet available. We've bought a pre-paid (prepago) sim-card from Vodafone. They have a good 4G coverage on the patio of the house. Initially we drove on the main roads to Teror and from there in the direction of San Mateo to reach the house. However the navigation system suggest other smaller roads to get home or away. Driving on these rural small roads around Teror, at some spots they're really small and steep, need some practice by daylight but are certainly worth the views. In the end we enjoyed those roads and drove them like a canario.
