Description

Self catering accommodation suitable for up to 6 person groups located in the mountainous region of Galdar in North West Gran Canaria, a 30 minute drive from the Galdar itself.

One of the interesting architectural features of Gran Canaria is its casa- cuevas or cave dwellings. Such words bring on images of mandatory animal skins and the carrying of large clubs with which to attract a mate. In fact the dwellings are houses half built from the rock with conventional buildings added on.

The mountain retreat is one such classic construction, only possible through the steep relief of the mountains of Gran Canaria. There are three rooms cut into the rock with a separate double bedroom, kitchen and bathroom as out buildings. Unless you're familiar with such constructions its initially hard to visualise. But an experience to relish.

In the case of the Mountain Retreat the 'rooms' are linked by a paved routeway, very like a conventional flat except the corridors

But an experience to relish.

In the case of the Mountain Retreat the 'rooms' are linked by a paved routeway, very like a conventional flat except the corridors are outside. One of the bedrooms is also the main living area but with two curtained bed alcoves cut into the rock (both double beds). Outside there's a separate double bedroom of modern conventional construction as well as kitchen and bathroom facilites. In addition there's a dining cave, with a separate barbeque area. Perhaps what is most memorable though is the small garden, featuring a listed Dragon tree, and the spectacular views, above the clouds.

The peace is absolute. The countryside astounding. When one walks there one understands the passion of the great explorers of the past.

Location description from owner

The Canary Islands region

GRAN CANARIA Internationally renowned as a holiday destination Gran Canaria is one of a group of small Spanish islands known as the Canaries situated off the West coast of Africa. Its location is on the same latitude as Florida and Algeria which means it has excellent sunshine all year round. Like its sister islands of Tenerife and Fuertaventura Gran Canaria is an extinct volcano and so has mountainous regions extending well above the clouds with stunning scenery. While the south of the island is predominantly a tourist destination full of tourist resorts the North is primarily agricultural and retains its Spanish indigenous feel with regular fiestas. There are a plethora of banana and tomato plantations. Flights from the UK are frequent and take 4 hours from London, 4.5 hours from Liverpool/Manchester.

Galdar

NORTHERN GRAN CANARIA
Northern Gran Canaria is an area steeped in history and Spanish culture. The capital is Las Palmas. The former capital was Galdar. Nothing on the island is particularly far away as Gran Canaria is only 40km across but if you wish to explore we do recommend that you hire a car. These are reasonably priced and can be picked up from the airport.

Attractions in the Las Palmas and Galdar include its architecture going back hundreds of years. In Galdar you have the world-famous Painted Cave discovered around 1900 and built by the island's aboriginal people before the Spanish conquest. Guided tours are available in English, German, French and Italian as well as Spanish. There some beautiful sandy beaches, secluded beaches and some of the best scuba diving in the North Atlantic is to be had at Sardina.

As well as the island's attractions there are ferries to nearby Teneriffe taking as little as an hour, from Agaete which is close to Sardina (5km) and which depart every couple of hours.

Probably what this area is best known for is its peace and tranquillity, its stunning scenery and views of the ocean and the mountains, its unusual flora and fauna unique to these islands. The light makes it popular with artists and photographers. There are few tourists and English is not spoken here. It is a far cry from the bustling south.
