Small house in quite surroundings with private pool and magnificent views to the valley and mountains.
The house care has been thought specially for couples seeking for a romantic place.
This is a fantastic property in a beautiful location. It is well equipped and we were delighted to receive such a lovely welcome pack. The views from the garden are fabulous and there are shops and a restaurant nearby. We are happy to recommend it and enjoyed it so much ourselves that we are already planning our return visit.
We come here for the last years to spend a week around Xmas and each time it feels like coming home. The house is great with all the facilities you need to make a fantastic holiday. There are great hiking facilities in the neighbourhood, you have your private pool and you're far away from the tourist craze... Great value for money and for sure a place I can recommend.
Had an excellent one week stay here
Booking was a breeze...Beatriz was very responsive to emails and provided timely answers to all questions. Payment was fast and efficient
The villa was exactly like the pictures...large south facing patio with incredible views. Small unheated pool which was a bit too cool for us at the end of January. BBQ and lots of outdoor seating.
Inside there are 2 large rooms...one is a living room/kitchen...there are two large facing sofas with a coffee table in between. Large flat screen TV with BBC/Sky in English and lots of German channels. Books case with reading material and videos and lots of tourist info. Dining table. The kitchen is fully equipped...fridge, cook top, oven, large fridge and lots of utensils and crockery. The bedroom is down a step...lots of closet space and a comfortable bed with 2 bedside tables. There is no door between the bedroom and the toilet area...large walk in shower.
There are lots of windows ( they open ) so unit is very bright. It was spotless when we arrived. Very much liked the welcome package...bottle of cava, tea, coffee, bread, pasta, sauce....enough to keep you going until you get to the market. Wifi was fast and efficient. No clothes washing machine but there is a machine available in the unit next door. We found it to be very quiet, both day and night.
This unit definitely requires a car. You are 5.5 km from nearest town, Santa Brigida on a mostly 2 lane paved road that is twisty and not well lite. Not a bad drive but it means driver needs to watch wine intake ! The unit is near a small town ,La Solona, that has 2 grocery stores that carry basics. It also has a bar/cafe which unfortunately was closed while we were there due to a change in ownership. It appeared to be ready for reopening when we left and having a bar/cafe within walking distance would be a major plus. It is great location for visiting other town and sites in the area.
Only thing we didn't like was the access to the villa...steep, narrow, road with a 3 point switchback at the bottom. Also need to back out about 100 meters to the switchback. We did it once that was enough..we left the car at the top and walked up/down...a good cardiac workout but not for those with knee or back issues. Road was bad enough in day time and would definitely not attempt it at night. Having said that Beatriz went in and out with no problems.
Definitely highly recommended...an excellent value for the money spent.
Wunderschöne Unterkunft, spektakulärer Blick, tolle Wanderungen, Superwetter - und das im November!
Beautiful property! The villa was spotlessly clean, with a modern kitchen and bathroom and a comfortable bed (however, if you are a light sleeper, you might want to wear earplugs, as there were several barking dogs late at night (somewhere in the echoing valley?) and cockerels crowing early in the morning! I slept fine with my earplugs, and my husband had no problem with these country noises, even welcoming them! ) The pool was gorgeous--very clean--and we felt spoiled to have it all to ourselves. It was a wonderfully private, quiet and relaxing villa, with truly beautiful views. We are quite fit, in our early 60s, but the steep private road leading to the villa might be a bit of a challenge to anyone with a knee or back problem. You can drive it if you're very confident. We recommend 'San Andrea' restaurant in Las Palmas, which had delicious vegetarian choices.
A perfect location for a relaxing holiday. Beatriz was the perfect host making us feel very welcome.the cottage was very clean and well maintained,would recommend car hire as the village is quite away up in the mountains.The views from the pool are amazing. Would love to go back for another holiday.
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
