About the property

Built in 1800, this manor cottage is set on a beautiful farm with hundreds of fruit trees mainly citrus fruits (oranges, lemons and grapefruits.) Creating wonderful scenery when in full bloom. It was completely refurbished in 2011 and is now a comfortable house fully adapted for people with reduced mobility. The property has kept its original structure, with thick walls of masonry, wood and a beautiful hipped roof. The location of the house away from the noise provides an atmosphere of peace and calm to all guests. Its two terraces and its tiny pool offer the possibility to enjoy the sunny days all the time.

The cottage is set on a 50,000 m2 estate situated in the area of El Madroñal (between Santa Brigida and San Mateo). In the same grounds there are two other little independent houses - all separate from one another. The estate is presently specializing in biological farming, and within it there are some lovely walks and the chance to go hiking along the diverse country paths in the surrounding areas. One can enjoy superb views from any point within the estate, overlooking the gorgeous countryside all around. The lovely countryside has remarkable resemblance to Tuscany. Altogether one can enjoy a real atmosphere of intimacy here, and breathe in the peace and tranquillity that this little pocket of nature affords.

A lovely finca surrounded by orange and lemon orchards in the hills of northern Gran Canaria

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here. The house is spacious and comfortable and there is everything you need to cater for yourselves. There are two bathrooms and plenty of hot water and towels. We were there in February and the central heating was on the whole time, keeping the place lovely and warm in the cool evenings.

The grounds surrounding the property are very pretty with lots of flowers and lawns where you can enjoy the sunshine. There are some walks straight from the house to both San Mateo and Santa Brigida, where there are plenty of shops and restaurants. Luis the owner is charming and helpful.

There is no hair dryer, which would have been useful. There is a good bus service to Las Palmas from the end of the road. You can also catch a bus to San Mateo and then another bus up to Tejeda in the mountains. It's a great area if you enjoy walking and mountains but it is cooler than the south of the island especially in Winter.

This was a perfect holiday home for us. “Away from it all” and still close to everything.

  • 5 of 5

Views to the mountains all way round. Lots of lemon trees just outside the garden. It is like living in the forest.

There are terraces on both side of the house. Sitting on the small balcony on first floor to watch the Sunrise.

Everything you need was there.

Luis the owner is very helpful.

The house is spacious, spotless clean and very good beds.

There is a very good restaurant in Madronal, 2 km away. Restaurante Casa Matell.

We visited old towns and saw magnifying views of the mountains.

As I am sensitive to EMR (electro sensitive) it was a perfect place for us. I just turned off the wifi and the microwave, and there were no Mobil mast with antennas close by. We will like to stay there again.

Das Landhaus entsprach unseren Erwartungen (entsprechend der Bedürfnisse von Kindern und Erw.).

  • 4 of 5

Die Räume boten ausreichend Platz und ließen durch ihre Ausstattung an eine andere gemächlichere und ursprünglichere Lebensart erinnern. Jede/r konnte sich je nach Stimmung zurückziehen, und zwar sowohl drinnen als auch draußen (Garten, Plantage, Umgebung). Und ebenso war genug Platz für gemeinsames Spiel, Essen, Lesen oder Dösen. Wir genossen allmorgentlich frisch gepflückten und gepressten Orangensaft. Durch die zwei entgegengesetzten Terrassen (nach Osten bzw. Südwesten) gab es die Wahl je nach Sonnenstand seinen Platz zu wählen. Zur Freude der Kinder konnten wir bei sehr heißem Wetter ein kleines Wasserbecken auf der Südwest-Seite füllen.

Ein kleiner Nachteil war, dass die Stromleistung für mehrere Geräte in der Küche (Kaffemaschine, Saftpresse, Toaster, Wasserkocher oder der gleichzeitge Gebrauch mehrerer Kochplatten) nicht ausreichte.

Das verschlossene Tor vor dem Zugang zum Gelände war teils lästig, da wir mit zwei Autos manchmal auch getrennt unterwegs waren, aber nur einen Schlüssel fürs Tor hatten.

Wir hatten eine wundervolle Zeit in diesem wirklich sehr schönen und sehr ruhig gelegenen alten Haus mit viel Atmosphäre. Der das Haus umgebende Garten, eigentlich Park, mit u.a. Orangen- und Zitronenbäumen war das I-Tüpfelchen. Dass wir uns auch noch überlegen durften, welche von den leckeren Früchten wir nun ernten möchten, hat uns beglückt und war ein Zusatzgeschenk, von dem wir dankbar Gebrauch gemacht haben.

Ruhige Villa abseits vom Massentourismus

  • 5 of 5

Ein wunderschöner Platz, um abseits der großen Touristenströme eine feine, ruhige Zeit zu verbringen.

Das Haus ist sehr urig mit viel Charme, ist umgeben von Orangen und Zitronenbäumen und hat einen ganz besonderen Flair.

Unser kleiner Sohn ( 3 Jahre alt ) hat sich hier vier Wochen lang, sehr wohl gefühlt und er wollte gar nicht mehr nach Hause fahren.

Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und Restaurantes gibt es 5 Minuten mit dem Auto entfernt in Vega de San Mateo oder in Santa Brigida.

Und wenn wir abends selber gekocht oder gegrilt haben, war der große Esstisch immer voll mit wunderbaren Speisen aus der Region.

Für uns war dieser Platz eine gute Ausgangsposition um die wunderschöne und vielfältige Insel zu erkunden.

Alles in allem ein besoderer und friedlicher Ort mit viel Charme, wo man am Abend mit einem Glas Wein im Garten sitzt und den Geräuschen der Nacht lauschen kann.

Wir lieben solche Orte und wenn es uns wieder einmal nach Gran Canaria verschlagen sollte, wissen wir wohin.

Danke für alles Stefan mit Angelika und Samuel

A dream came true

  • 5 of 5

A lovely house which has been renovated with great taste and all amenities, spotless clean and nicely heated as it gets chilly in the evening...

A fantastic garden, a dream for all kids; a perfect location, only 20 min drive to the capital, with its lovely old town, great beach, museums, shops, restaurants...

A 5 min drive to the next grocery stores and best market of whole Gran Canaria (Vegua de San MAteo).

Perfect for exploring the inside of the island, with its great nature and proud past.

Great owner, who speaks extremely good English and would do anything for you.

We, a family of 5, loved it.
