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.

Un pequeño paraiso

  • 5 of 5

What a lovelly place! Very quite, clean, nice and cosy, though very comfortable. The perfect spot for rest and recreation. Located at about 1000 m high in the mountain region, it is also a wounderful 'basecamp' for hiking tours in the surrounding areas.

The house is perfectly equipped from the living room up to the kitchen and there is absolutely nothing you would propabely miss.

We enjoyed. our stay here so much, that we consider to come back again in the near future.

Tolles Ferienhaus!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben in dem wunderschönen Häuschen zwei tolle Ferienwochen verbracht. Bei unserer Ankunft wurden wir von unseren sehr freundlichen und aufmerksamen Gastgebern Goyi und Victor begrüßt. Alles war liebevoll für uns vorbereitet. Haus und Ausstattung sind überaus gepflegt und auch sehr sauber. Besonders toll fanden wir auch das leckere Obst und die Kräuter, die bereits gepflückt und hübsch angerichtet auf uns warteten und die wir uns im Garten pflücken konnten. Im Garten gibt es viele Obstbäume, sodass es fast das ganze Jahr über etwas zu ernten gibt: Zitronen, Orangen, Pflaumen, Äpfel, Birnen, Quitten. Inzwischen gibt es im Haus auch einige super Neuerungen, die sich den Bildern nicht entnehmen lassen: die Liegen am Pool sind besser als die abgebildeten (ganz aus Plastik und so auch stabiler) und zwischen dem Bad und dem Wohnzimmer gibt es eine Verbindungstür. Ansonsten ist alles genauso schön wie auf den Fotos :-) wer sich für dieses Häuschen entscheidet, darf sich schon auf einen tollen Urlaub freuen!

Estuvimos en la casa en julio y nos ha gustado muchísimo! Mucho sol durante el dia, una piscina fresquita para refrescarse, y fruta directamente del jardin :-) Es el lugar perfecto para relajar y escapar de ajetreo de la ciudad. Pero también para visitar el interior hermoso de la isla, sea en coche o haciendo senderismo. La casa, además, está muy bien equipada y hay un "Spar", una gasolinera y varios restaurantes bastante cerca. No os faltará nada. Ciertamente lo recomendamos a todos que se interesen por el turismo rural y talvéz volveremos a repetir nuestra fantástica experiencia en el futuro :-)

We visited this house in July and liked it very much! We had warm sunny weather all day long, to cool off we could take a plunge in the fresh pool and eat from all sorts of fruits directly from garden. It's the perfect place to relax and get away from hectic civilisation for a couple of days. It is also great for visiting the beatiful interior of the island be it by car or hiking. Furthermore, the house is very well equipped, the are a Spar" grocery-store, a petrol station and several restaurants nearby. You won't miss anything. We strongly recommend this house to everyone who is interested in rural tourism and we ourselves might even one day go there again and repeat our wonderful experience :-)

wunderschönes Ferienhaus

  • 4 of 5

Das Haus ist mit viel Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet. Der Garten ist wunderschön und bietet viele gemütliche Sonnenplätze, inmitten von Orangen- und Zitronenbäumen. Die Fenster bestehen zum Teil nur aus einem Fensterladen (ohne Fensterglas). Das bedeutet, dass man in den kühleren Jahreszeiten entweder im dunklen Raum sitzt oder die kühle Luft ins Haus kommt. Das Haus ist also vor allem ein traumhaftes, sehr ruhig gelegenes Sommerhaus. Man kann direkt vom Haus aus wunderbare Spaziergänge machen und ist mit dem Auto schnell wieder auf den grösseren Strassen.

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 towns 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 a 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.

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.
