Some updating needed

  • 1 of 5

On the plus side the owners were pleasant enough

The kitchen was well equipped with an oven which is rare in rented accommodation

However on arrival the house was dark and cold

The bed and bedding were damp and these had to be aired out by the use of electric blankets.

Needed the electric blankets on every night

There was a heater in the first bedroom which was almost useless and just about kept the room aired when left on all the time

We used the towel rail from the bathroom to keep the second bedroom aired on a night

Without these too cold and damp to use

The whole house was cold and damp. Couldn't sit on the veranda as there was no sun onto it at this time of year

We were offered firewood to burn in the fireplace but would have had to pay 10 euros a bag

You should not have to rely on this form of heat in the winter. There should be heaters (heating)

to keep the place warm and dry

The sitting room was uncomfortable - more like a corridor. The furniture as well past it's usefulness. The springs on the settee were gone and you felt everyone when seated

The property was advertised with a washing machine. This however was not in the property itself and a charge of 5 euros for using theirs.There was very little sun into the house and only a little bit outside in the afternoon

The hot water in the shower kept going off halfway through

Loungers were provided but these were dirty and the cushions were grubby

Vegetation was overgrown which didn't help

The exposed electrical wiring was poor - taped with insulation tape

It may be different in the Summer months but the house is not - in our opinion - really good in the Winter as the house doesn't get the sun

You had to go out to get any sun

quaint and lovely balcony

  • 4 of 5

spent a week in November at El Sosiego, and was very happy with the villa. The living room is small but very tastefully decorated with very olde worlde furniture. the owners are very helpful and if you have any problems i am sure they will resolve. looking forward to booking again next year. The Canarian balcony was our breakfast, lunch and evening meal place to sit and relax with its beautiful views.

Ciekawe wakacje w kanaryjskiej atmosferze

  • 5 of 5

El Sosiego jest idealnym miejscem dla osób, które chcą spędzić wakacje w prawdziwie kanaryjskiej atmosferze, z dala od tłumu turystów. Ilka jest osobą bardzo pomocną i jednocześnie dyskretną. Zarówno dom, jak i jego otoczenie jest pięknie utrzymane i bardzo czyste. Willa jest wyjątkowa, zbudowana w starym stylu, ale posiada wszystkie nowoczesne udogodnienia (uwaga na niskie drzwi - ale to jest element stylu). Centralne położenie na wyspie jest idealną bazą wypadową do wycieczek - w kilkanaście minut możesz dojechać na plażę, do Las Palmas lub wyruszyć w głąb wyspy. W Santa Brygidzie jest kilka klimatycznych knajpek, szczególne polecam Picoteo Cafe El Despacho.

Jednym zdaniem, wspaniałe miejsce za rozsądne pieniądze. Polecamy wszystkim, którzy chcą odpocząć z dala od turystycznej machiny.

What can I say! One of the best holidays we have ever had! 'El Sosiego' is a lovely charming property with lots of character loving built by the owners Dirk & Ilka Emmerich. The property is very well maintained & extremely well equiped. We had lots of help from Ilka before & during the holiday & we couldn't be more grateful. Dirk was very helpful too giving us tips on where to visit on the Island & they made us feel very welcome & so did Borca their lovely dog.

We hired a motorbike for the week & toured nearly all the Island, the mountain roads were absolutely breathtaking, you must visit the mountains & see the true Gran Canaria. We were very lucky that we had very hot weather eventhough it was mid January. This was a truly idylic place to stay & very relaxing.

We really enjoyed having a meal with Dirk & Ilka & we were so impressed when they invited us into their lovley charming home, it's a real credit to them. We were invited into their charming Bodega & had a lovely time with plenty of wine. Thanks to them both for making this holiday so special. We will definately be back & wholly recommend 'El Sosiego' to people.

Das besondere Ferienhaus

  • 5 of 5

"Nicht nur die Unterkunft war begeisternd, sondern auch die Betreuung durch die Vermieter. Dieser Urlaub wird uns durch die Besonderheiten, die uns das Ferienhaus geboten hat, nachhaltig in Erinnerung bleiben.

Besonders als Ausgangsort für Fahrten/Wanderungen in die Berge ist die Lage des Quartiers sehr geeignet.

Wohnen zum Genießen!

Für die nächste Reise nach Gran Canaria kennen wir schon unsere Unterkunft.

Aleida & Jens"

Idyllisches Bauernhaus in sehr guter Lage

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben unseren Urlaub in El Sosiego sehr genossen. Die vielen kleinen und liebevoll arrangierten Details im und rund ums Haus sorgten spontan dafür, daß wir uns sehr wohl gefühlt haben.

Die Vermieter waren sehr aufmerksam, angefangen beim netten Willkommensgruß bis hin zu wertvollen Informationen über die Insel.

Im auch in dieser Jahreszeit noch etwas kühleren Norden haben wir das Angebot für Kaminholz gerne angenommen.

Wir würden jederzeit wieder dorthin fahren!

Car: recommended

The house has challenging country side surroundings, approx. 500 m above the sea level and about 15 minutes by car from the capital Las Palmas, where you can find the famous city beach ‘Las Canteras’. There are only 5 minutes by car to the Sta. Brigida, with the historical town center and good shopping facilities. There you can visit the weekly market for vegetables and fruit. The only bathing beach in the South of the Island, with warm temperatures even in the winter can be reached within 45 minutes by car. The airport is only half an hour away. Climate information: In the summertime, the temperatures are between 20 and 26 °C, and in the winter time, between 15 and 21 °C. Sometimes in the winter months it rains. This is why even this part of the island has rich vegetation.

Golf: The oldest golf course in Spain has a fantastic location and can be reached in only 10 minutes by car.
