|Further details indoors|
The villa has been built to a high UK standard and has most amenities required to make your holiday a special one. As the "Canarias 7" - "Hello" magazine equivalent which wrote 7 pages on the house said "This is one of the most luxurious houses in Gran Canaria - a true pearl in Tauro".
It is minimalist in style and the views from practically every room in the house are stunning, looking over the valley out to sea. The valley has an 18 hole Championship Golf Course which was designed by Van Hagge (the designer of Wisley Golf Club in the UK). The nearest public beach is Amadores which is 2 kms away. For night life Puerto Rico is 2 kms away and Maspalomas 12 kms.
|Further details outdoors|
You will tend to spend most of your time outside the main house either lounging on a sun lounger or sitting waiting for the barbecue to finish cooking your meal! There is an 8 seater table outside the kitchen where you can have your sundowner while watching the sun set over the sea.
Or have a dip in the 11 x 8 metre swimming pool which has an infinity effect. If you wanted to chill away from the heat of the day you can rest in the back garden of the house which is secluded and shaded while listening to the sound of the waterfall which is beside the front steps of the house.
The swimming pool is heated during the period October to March at no extra cost to you. Of course with any home with a swimming pool care must be taken with children. Since this is the rental of a privately owned villa rather than a registered hotel or part of a holiday Tourist Complex, we are obliged under Spanish Tenancy Law to charge separately for 'services' such as for electricity/water/rates and the final cleaning and laundry bill. This is similar to the way one might normally rent a house or apartment in the UK where these costs are legally deemed to be the responsibility of the tenant. To make this easy we ask for a service amount dependent on the time of year that you book e.g. in winter the electricity usage will be greater than the summer time. So, during summer the additional “services” cost will be £250 and the winter “services” cost will be £300.
The Gran Canaria region
Gran Canaria is the largest of the 7 Canary Islands. It is blessed with a wonderful year round climate normally varying between 16 degrees at night and 28 degrees during the day.
The island is 80kms x 30kms and a tour of the island including the interior is well worthwhile. Las Palmas, the capital, is 60 kms away and is Spain's 5th largest city. It is historic and is one of the world's largest ports and it is where Christopher Columbus lived for some time and embarked on his discovery of the West Indies from here in Las Palmas.
The valley where the villa is situated is called "Halsodalen" - Norwegian for "Valley of Health". The World Health Organisation designated the coast between Arguineguin and Mogan as one of the healthiest and least polluted in the world today. The warm dry climate in Tauro can give asthma sufferers real relief.
There is a SPAR supermarket about 10 minutes walk/ 2 minute drive from the villa as well as a good restaurant in the same area.
Puerto Rico is only 5 minutes away by car and the beautiful Amadores Beach is again only 5 minutes away by car.

"Outstanding villa in a superb location"
We (husband and two 11 year-olds) stayed at Los Altos last week and we had a wonderful time. The villa is immaculate, very well equipped and has the wow factor. The pool was perfect, and our children played in it at length. We spent much of our time relaxing on the terrace, taking in the wonderful weather and the amazing view over the valley to the sea. Los Altos is in a very peaceful and relaxing location and we would thoroughly recommend it - and I am very fussy! Both the owner and the agent were exceptional with keeping in touch and answering any questions we had, and were both very friendly. A wonderful holiday!

"Perfection! If you are looking for the ultimate break, this is it."
My wife and I stayed at Los Altos whilst visiting family in The Canary Islands, from our many visits and stays in numerous accommodation across the islands, this is by far the best we have found.
The villa itself is presented to a very high standard and is immaculate. It has the wow factor and everything you need and expect for a luxury holiday. The location is perfect, whatever type of holiday you like. Not too far from the busy nightlife in Puerto Rico or the relative tranquility of the beautiful Peurto Mogan. Should you choose not to venture out, the villa is in a peaceful elevated position with oustanding views.
The owner met us on arrival and couldnt have been more helpful. A genuinely nice chap who gave us everything we could possibly need for a perfect holiday. Without doubt, we will be returning very soon.

"Superb. Beautiful. Spacious. Well equipped. Easy for families."
Los Altos is the best villa we have stayed in, and we've stayed in a few. The house is not only beautiful but its superbly equipped. On top of this John, the owner, was superb before we arrived, answering all my questions (of which I had quite a few) quickly and informatively.
We went with 2 children and 5 adults and there was enough space for us to enjoy each others company but not feel on top of each other.
Look out for the lady that delivers fresh croissants and bread every day, tasty and huge!
I've never returned to any villa we've rented before but I'd absolutely return to Los Altos.

"Well appointed property and good value for money"
My wife and I stayed at Los Altos with our two children. We had been to Gran Canaria before but this was our first stay in this villa. Compared to other accommodation we used previously, Los Alton … More
