As the house is at the bottom of the ravine, the final track to the house (about 1km) is very steep. The car is parked at the end of this neighbor road and need to walk about 100 meters to the house.

The property was not fit for winter use purpose. Heating very poor. Two tiny radiators + coal fire.

  • 1 of 5

The information about the cottage needs to be radically amended.

1. The cottage sits at the bottom of a ravine requiring a dangerous, roughly kilometre long drive down an extremely steep cement track ( (not a road) with impossibly tight turns much of which has no safety rail at all. It is impossible to drive on this track in the darkness. A very very dangerous and restrictive obstacle for going out after dark. We were terrified driving either way on this dangerous track. This means being trapped in the property every night.

The property could not be heated properly in the evening. We huddled round a log fire that quickly filled the whole house with suffocating, smellly smoke. All of our clothing was saturated with this unpleasant smell.

This property is too remote, too inaccessible, and too ill equipped for ordinary holidaymakers. People with any minor disability, or elderly people, would not be able to cope with the inaccessibility of the property. We spent 4 miserable days and nights there, before finally giving up and leaving the property 3 days early. We feel cheated by this experience. We are regular customers of owners direct, and make these comments not to merely complain about our own experience but to warn others about this property with it’s seriously dangerous, unhealthy, and demoralising flaws.

Peace and quiet in the country

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, rustic style cottage tucked away in the mountains. Very peaceful location great for walking. The cottage is very well equipped with all amenities, village nearby with small supermarket. House has a small swimming pool, which was nice to relax in, barbecue area was nice in the evenings.

Ein kleines Paradies

  • 5 of 5

Wir wurden sehr herzlich empfangen, das Feuer im Kamin brannte( wir waren die letzte Märzwoche da), der Kühlschrank war gefüllt, frisches , sehr leckeres Obst auf dem Tisch. Gut gefallen hat uns die Ausstattung der Küche:

Öl , Essig, Kaffe, Zucker, Gewürze, Spüli, Pürierstab, Toaster, Wasserkocher ...... war alles da. Es gibt auch eine Aussenküche , mit Grill und weiterer Sitzgelegenheit.

Der Garten war paradiesisch schön, nach anstrengenden Wanderungen haben wir uns gerne im Pool abgekühlt. An dem Haus vorbei geht ein Wanderweg, von Cruz de Tejeda nach Teror .Die Strasse zum Haus ist sehr steil, man wohnt sehr ländlich, morgen kräht irgendwo ein Hahn.

Die sonnigen Morgende auf der Terasse haben wir sehr genossen, abends haben wir es uns vor dem Kamin gemütlich gemacht, Brennholz war vorhanden.

Wir kommen gerne wieder!!

Schöne Finca in herrlicher Lage

  • 4 of 5

Es ist eine tolle, große Finca in herrlicher Natur und die Besitzer sind sehr freundlich und haben uns mit einem brennenden Kamin, frischen Obst und Gemüse empfangen.

Wir waren Ende Februar da und daher war es noch ziemlich kühl in der Finca. Wir hatten allerdings reichlich Holz und auch zwei elektrische Heizungen.

Für Wanderer ist die Finca sicher ideal, uns hat manchmal ein bißchen der weite Weg zu anderen Orten genervt. Insgesamt waren wir aber sehr zufrieden mit unserer Unterkunft!

Super Urlaub ab vom Trubel

  • 5 of 5

wunderschöne Unterkunft für 2 Pers.(+2 Kinder). Abseits jeglichen Trubels (Kein Internet). Gute Ausgangslage für sämtlich Unternehmungen/Wanderungen auf der ganzen Insel. Idyllischer Garten, kleiner Pool und eine Außenküche. In der Küche war alles vorhanden, nur ein großes scharfes Messer hat gefehlt. Sehr nette Vermieter, keine Kaution, keine Extrakosten. Tip Top gepflegt.

Next to the house runs the famous trail PR GC-01 which connects Cruz de Tejeda with the picturesque village of Teror at just 6.5 kms away from the house (9kms, about 15-minutes-drive). This is one of the Caminos Reales on the island of Gran Canaria that used to communicate villages before the circulation of the car today offering interesting routes for walkers and nature lovers. This along with 7 other routes of great natural value and 80% of its territory being catalogued as Protected Natural Area, have led to the Municipality of Valleseco to specialize and pamper carefully activities like hiking and, taking into account the lack of circular routes given the terrain, offer a good taxi service picking-up at home and taking to the starting points of the routes and collecting people at the end of them.

In the small neighborhood of Madrelagua, which is reached with a short walk, there are two grocery stores where you can buy fruits and vegetables of the area as well as bread and basic products. For more choice, in the village of Valleseco at just 2kms away there is a Spar supermarket and post office, banks, cafes, pool and public library with Internet access and a convenient Tourist Office.

The local custom of eating out in the countryside makes it easy to find good restaurants with reasonable prices specialized in grilled meat and typical Canarian dishes, with the closest ones at 2kms in the neighboring district of Lanzarote or nearby too, already in the way to the coast, it is the famous Balcon de Zamora restaurant next to a beautiful observation deck.

The house has an excellent position to explore the north of the island and its towns and is also good to enjoy their beaches with local atmosphere at 30-min-drive like San Felipe, Bañaderos and El Puertillo with its natural pools in the rocks. Already here on the coast, the restaurants are more specialized in fish, offering a pleasant contrast with the interior.
