|Property type||chateau / country house|
|Minimum Stay||4 nights|
More than 250 year old, traditional Canarian farmhouse. It was built of stones and laid the floor with wood, from the restoration of the design and the original materials have been retained. The furniture has been maintained and renovated to provide a comfortable stay by using electrical appliances and other conveniences to guarantee. In the two courtyards you can enjoy the beautiful starry night in the dark and during the day use the generous space for grilling, playing with the kids or for sunbathing. Due to its excellent location in the center of Gran Canaria with access from the motorway and hiking trails in all directions of the island, this property is perfect for exploring other areas of the island.
The house Pepita de las Flores is the first country house in the town of Tejeda and particularly known in the older villagers, because it housed the first shop in the area and after Juan, the husband of Pepita, landed in Cuba flourished this small business. (Wii game console)

Even just getting to Chalet Pepita was part of the adventure of a holiday to a new (to us) destination, including meeting Juan Diego outside the Banco Santander in Sta Brigida to pick up the keys! We managed to negotiate our mutual limited language skills, with a very friendly and competent J-D sending us off with detailed instructions on how to reach the house, via Cruz de Tejeda, with a stop off at the Hyper-Dino in nearby Vega de Mateo. The drive to the house is stunning, particularly the drop down from Cruz to reach the road toward La Culata. At first attempt, the tiny access road leading past several water tanks and houses is daunting - hairpin left off the main road (which isn't exactly straight itself), and up a scarily steep gradient to the shoulder. It's very much a single track road, but well-surfaced and with adequate armco protection, so keep your fingers crossed you don't meet someone coming down. The location of the house is fantastic, everything you'd want from a quiet getaway. The views from the terrace across the valley to Roque Nublo, and down the valley to Roque Bentayga are stunning, and are a brilliant welcome on waking up each morning. The house itself is quite quirky - I wasn't expecting to have to go outside the house from the bedrooms to reach the rest of the accommodation - but this only adds to its charm. While the equipment and utensils provided are relatively basic, they're more than sufficient for the preparation of simple meals - and there's always nearby Tejeda for (excellent) restaurants, provided you steel yourself for the access road. The beds are comfortable (extra blankets provided, just in case), the living room is cosy, and the shower/wc works well - fantastic view of Nublo framed by the window. In all, I wouldn't recommend Pepita if you're looking for the party scene, but it's a slice of perfection if you want a quiet mountain getaway in the midst of fantastic scenery, waking up to the sounds of birds and bees (and the odd donkey in La Culata), and within easy reach of walking routes and mountain villages, along the most wonderfully scenic roads.
