The large gardens contain an abundance of plants and flowers with lawn areas for sun-bathing. The large swimming pool measures 24ft x 14ft with an average depth of 1.2metres. The villa swimming pool has a new saline filter system, which has substantial benefits to standard chlorine pools – kinder to the skin and hair, no harsh chlorine smell and no red/sore eye problems. The taste of the water is approximately 1/12th as salty as the ocean, so it is very mild - the same as a tear drop, so hardly any actual salt taste. The saline water is extremely soft on the skin, the same as if you have a water softener at home. The pool is solar powered and kept to an average temperature of 30 degrees in the summer and 22-25 degrees in winter periods (Nov - Feb). There is also a poolside shower. There is plenty of patio furniture and sun loungers. A large gas BBQ is made available, perfect for outside dining.
Gran Canaria, really Grand Canary (archaic), is the third largest island of the Canary Islands, an archipelago located in the Atlantic Ocean 210 km from the north-west coast of Africa and belonging to Spain. It is located south-east of Tenerife and west of Fuerteventura. The island is of volcanic origin.
The island was populated by the Guanches, who may have arrived as early as 500 BC. The Guanches called the island Tamaràn. It was claimed by Spain in the 15th century.
Gran Canaria's surface is 1,560 km2 and its maximum altitude is 1,949 metres (Pico de Las Nieves). It has a round shape, having a diametre of just about 50 km.
The pueblo (Small village) of Tauro, up to 5 years ago was a sleepy backwater totally unlike the more busy resort of Puerto Rico, which is around 3 kms away.
One of the major changes in the valley of Tauro is a new 18 - hole PGA Championship Golf Course. There is also a beautiful, yet demanding 9-Hole par 3 golf course with an adjacent excellent driving range. Golf lessons are available if required. Tauro still maintains its unique tranquillity that is so much enjoyed by very many people, but is still close to local beaches and resorts. (Tauro to Puerto Rico by taxi - €4).
