Car: recommended

The municipality of Tejeda lies 44 kilometres from the capital of the island, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. From Las Palmas you can get to Tejeda by taking the GC 15 (Carretera del Centro). It is a rather winding road amid beautiful scenery, passing through the municipalities of Santa Brígida and San Mateo. In a private car the 44-kilometre-drive can be done in about an hour.

In the case of public transport, the visitor should go to the Bus Station (Estación de Guaguas) in Las Palmas and either take a number 303 bus to San Mateo from where the buses go out number 305 bus towards Tejeda and the number 18 bus that the distance covers San Mateo - Tejeda - San Bartolomé de Tirajana - Faro de Maspalomas.

Culture and art are present in Tejeda as additional options to tourism and leisure activities. Visitors may visit the Abraham Cárdenes Sculpture Museum where they can admire part of the important Canarian sculptor’s work. Abraham Cárdenes was born in Tejeda and was always a great admirer of his homeland. There is also an Ethnographic Museum, which allows the visitor to take a tour through the history of the municipality and of Gran Canaria. There will also be a Medicinal Plants Centre, where the visitor can discover the variety of plants, herbs and flowers which are autochthonous to Tejeda and the island. Besides you will be able to see the different uses these have in medicine, cosmetics and religion.

Tejeda is a must for those who wish to discover the rich archaeological wealth of the island. Archaeological remains such as burial caves, rock carvings, paintings and houses are found in this area. Roque Bentayga offers an excellent example. It is an outstanding natural element which was a sacred place for the native people. It was here that they gave offerings and prayed to their gods. The Cuevas del Rey are located inside the Roque Bentayga, where the visitor can see caves that were used as rooms and granaries, rock carvings, cave paintings and numerous perforations carried out in the rock demonstrating the existence of a pre Hispanic religious centre.

The Bentayga Archaeological Park is an eco-museum situated beside Roque Bentayga offering information

"The villa is in the beau...

  • 5 of 5

"The villa is in the beautiful village of Tejeda and has wonderful views facing towards Artenara. The villa provides spacious accommodation for four adults, and there is an extra bed in one room and a child's cot in another, to sleep up to 5 adults. The village is quiet but has some basic amenities near by - a wonderful bakery and patisserie, a small Spar (opens only during certain times of the year), several restaurants and cafes.

The villa has a terrace but unfortunately during our stay in January, the sun never shone directly on to the terrace, and the villa was slightly cold although it does have heating and adequate hot water. There are plenty of other spaces you can sit in in Tejeda to enjoy the sun though, and it is a great location for hiking and cycling."

Schöner Ort, charmantes Haus, kleine Schwächen

  • 4 of 5

Der Ort Tejeda ist sehr schön und ideal gelegen für Ausflüge in die Berge. Das Haus selbst liegt auch sehr schön im Ortszentrum. Es ist ein großzügig gebautes altes kanarisches Haus mit viel Charme.

Auch wenn es einige kleine Probleme mit Schlössern, Türen, dem Wasser und der Dusche gibt, empfanden wir das nicht als übermäßig problematisch. Es ist letztlich nicht ganz unnormal bei solch alten Gebäuden.

Für eine Ferienwohnung ist die Einrichtung auch sehr komplett. Bedauert haben wir, dass der elektrische Wasserkocher defekt ist und die Vermieter ihr Versprechen, das zu ändern nicht eingehalten haben. Leider gibt es auch ausschließlich zerkratzte Anti-haftbeschichtete Töpfe und Pfannen in der Küche. Die sollte man schon aus gesundheitlichen Aspekten heraus nicht unbedingt benutzen. Wenigstens ein Edelstahltopf und eine Edelstahlpfanne wären sehr wünschenswert.

Mit dem Wetter hatten wir Glück. Nur die letzten zwei Tage war es etwas kühler und dann ist es im Haus auch schnell ungemütlich. Zwar sind überall Elektroheizkörper installiert, aber die sind nicht benutzbar gewesen. Wäre vermutlich auch mit riesigen Stromkosten verbunden.

Wer über die angesprochenen kleinen Probleme hinwegsehen kann, für den ist die Unterkunft durchaus empfehlenswert.

Authentische Ferienwohnung, leider zu kalt im Frühling

  • 3 of 5

Wir waren Mitte März in dieser Ferienwohnung. Sie liegt wirklich zentral mitten in Tejeda. Das Parken war nie ein Problem.

Die Ferienwohnung ist in einem schönen alten Haus, und die Einrichtung wurde sehr liebevoll ausgewählt. Dadurch fühlt man sich sehr wohl in der Wohnung. Sie ist sehr geräumig, hat tolle hohe Wände und der Ausblick von der Terrasse ist wirklich super.

Leider war auf der Terrasse am Tag nur maximal eine Stunde Sonne. Wir hatten wohl sehr Pech mit dem Wetter, in Tejeda waren es nur etwa 10-18 °C und in der Wohnung war es leider auch nicht viel wärmer. Wir mussten immer mit der Jacke in der Wohnung herumlaufen. Aus der Dusche kommt nur sehr wenig Wasser, so dass man auch beim Duschen nicht aufwärmen konnte.

Wenn die Temperaturen allerdings höher sind, kann ich mir vorstellen, dass es in der Wohnung angenehm erfrischend ist.

Die Frau, die uns die Schlüssel gab, konnte leider kein Deutsch und auch kein Englisch, es hat aber trotzdem funktioniert.

Fazit: Schöne Wohnung, toller Ausblick, aber nur bei warmen Temperaturen

Mooi, netjes maar koud en geen zon in januari op het terras.

  • 3 of 5

We werden gastvrij ontvangen met een fles wijn, een mand sinaasappels en wat andere lekkernijen. Het is een mooi huis en lekkker schoon. Wij waren er in januari en ondanks dat het meestal mooi weer was was het erg fris in huis. Ook op het terras was het koud omdat er de hele dag geen zon kwam. In de zomer zal het ongetwijfeld een fantastisch vakantiehuis zijn op een mooie locatie maar nu was het wat frisjes
