About the property

A self-catering rental away from it all

A traditional house that has been carefully restored is always a pleasure to find and thus it was with delight that we wandered through the welcoming rooms of this charming rural retreat.

The interior is a perfect blend of old and new. Traditional carved furniture of heavy wood sits atop terracotta tiles in the cosy sitting room, a pretty kitchen, curtained with colourful fabrics is adorned with local pottery, whilst in the immaculate bathrooms thoughtfully chosen ceramics decorate tap handles and walls alike.

Standing high on the slopes of a south-facing hillside, on the edge of the local village of Solana de Utiaca, this privileged situation combines a picturesque panorama of mountains with proximity to amenities.

Built in 1850 and carefully refurbished in 2001, the stone, terracotta and wood building has a floor area of 200 m² with modern facilities in a charming atmosphere. There is WiFi for our guests traveling with laptops or iPads.

This villa has a private pool (6,5 x 4 mt) with a panoramic view to the mountainous landscape.

Beautiful country property with fantastic views.

  • 5 of 5

A traditionally decorated country property in the quiet village of La Solana. The outside space was so lovely and well kept. The beds were very comfortable and there were several places to relax. Beatrix the owner was very helpful and attentive. We had a very hot week of sun at the end of October. You will need a car at this property although there are two small shops within walking distance for most things. Be prepared to leave the car on the road above the property and use steps to access it as the drive of the property is steep. Beatrix helped us move our luggage to our car at the end of the stay. We would thoroughly recommend the property if you want peace, but within reach of everything easily by car.

Beautifull villa both inside and lovely outside spaces as well with fantastic veiws.

  • 5 of 5

Villa is on a hillside with fanstatic veiws. The villa was spotless and was beautiful with a lovely master bedroom. We especially loved the numerous outside seating areas. The pool was great with a lilo, a couple of swimming noodles and a ball which the kids enjoyed. The upper parking area was being paved so was not availible when we were there. We arrived late in the dark and Beatriz kindly ran us and our luggage from the side street where we parked into the property only a minute away. Once it was daylight the driveway to the house was tricky to negotiate but do-able. Beatriz had left a welcome basket which was spot on for a hungry family arriving late with ingrediants for a simple pasta supper and a good breakfast as well as much appeciated goodies of cava and chocolate! We had a fabulous holiday, a walk up to Roque Nublo was a highlight. Beatriz was so friendly and it was lovely to meet her. She was also really helpfull throughout our stay and, as no-one else was coming immediately after us, kindly let us stay later into the afternoon on our last day before we left to catch our evening flight home. A brilliant holiday made very special by our accomodation!

Wonderful house, amazing views, just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The house, the pool, the views...it's really gorgeous. We very much enjoyed our stay in and around the house where you can find so many comfortable and lovely places. Our children loved to explore the house and its surroundings and spent hours in the pool. Beatrix made us feel very welcome and gave us great tips and recommendations. We have seen very nice places on the island when we were hiking in the mountains or at the seaside but we always enjoyed very much to return to this house!

Wonderfully peaceful rural retreat

  • 4 of 5

We booked Casa Moral as a last minute getaway for some much needed sun, rest and relaxation. We were very happy with our choice; the property has many wonderful outdoor areas to relax but the highlight for us was a magnificent rural view across some of the most wonderful scenery. The house itself is well equipped with two lounging areas and three double bedrooms, each with their own bathrooms. It is comfortably furnished and the kitchen has everything you could need. However, the outdoor areas, including the private pool, are the real selling point of the property. As mentioned in previous reviews, the drive down to the property really is quite tricky so we left the car at the top of the hill and walked the 5 mins up and down the hill with our baby. This can be a little inconvenient with shopping and definitely not something you could do with a pram, but we felt the natural location more than made up for the inconvenience. Beatriz went the extra mile for us, making sure we had all the baby kit we needed which was very kind and provided a food welcome pack as we arrived late. The downsides; it would have been great to have an information pack on the local area (recommended beaches, restaurants, local markets etc) so that we didn't need to keep bothering Beatriz. Also, the local village only has two little shops which are not open all the time and the restaurant mentioned in previous reviews didn't open once when we were there so you really do need a car. I would also suggest to those who have restricted mobility or those with toddling or crawling babies that this may not be best for you as there are lots of stairs and some without hand rails. But if you don't mind a little extra effort and crave stunning, uninterrupted views, genuine peace and quiet then Casa Moral is definitely worth a visit.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, Simone. This is really more than what I could have thought of when you told me you had written a review. Thank you!! Definitely I have to start working seriously in that book for the house but not because you can bother me. You never do. For me it is a nice chance to chat a bit with the guests and see their needs and expectations for the house and the island as well, but it is truth that some questions pop up frequently so maybe, who knows, I can start with my point of view from the house and end up writting a Best Seller guide of Gran Canaria! My best wishes to that young family. I hope to see you soon again :)

From the house, a narrow footpath winds its way up to the parking area and the village above of Solana de Utiaca. Within walking distance, this small village has a grocery store, although for a greater selection of amenities Santa Brígida and the market town of Vega de San Mateo is a 15-minute drive.

The city of Las Palmas and so the coastline is only at 20km. Within 30 minutes drive, a great variety of beaches can be reached, all of them away from mass tourism. Melenara, Las Canteras or San Andrés give you the opportunity to spend the day in the beach in a family mood with the local people. Then, with the sunset, you may enjoy a dinner of fresh fish at any of the inexpensive restaurants around the area.

The Real Club de Golf the Las Palmas is within 15-minute drive of the villa next to the stunning Caldera de Bandama, a 200-meter-deep volcanic crater, on whose peak you will find an observation platform that affords you a scenic vista of the island. Kill two birds with one stone!

Other Activities: Contemplation of volcanic geography, visiting archaeological and ethnographic sites, hiking
