A traditional house that has been carefully restored is always a pleasure to find and thus it was with delight that we wandered through the welcoming rooms of this charming rural retreat.
The interior is a perfect blend of old and new. Traditional carved furniture of heavy wood sits atop terracotta tiles in the cosy sitting room, a pretty kitchen, curtained with colourful fabrics is adorned with local pottery, whilst in the immaculate bathrooms thoughtfully chosen ceramics decorate tap handles and walls alike.
Standing high on the slopes of a south-facing hillside, on the edge of the local village of Solana de Utiaca, this privileged situation combines a picturesque panorama of mountains with proximity to amenities.
Built in 1850 and carefully refurbished in 2001, the stone, terracotta and wood building has a floor area of 200 m² with modern facilities in a charming atmosphere. There is WiFi for our guests traveling with laptops or iPads.
This villa has a private pool (6,5 x 4 mt) with a panoramic view to the mountainous landscape.
From the house, a narrow footpath winds its way up to the parking area and the village above of Solana de Utiaca. Within walking distance, this small village has a grocery store, although for a greater selection of amenities Santa Brígida and the market town of Vega de San Mateo is a 15-minute drive.
The city of Las Palmas and so the coastline is only at 20km. Within 30 minutes drive, a great variety of beaches can be reached, all of them away from mass tourism. Melenara, Las Canteras or San Andrés give you the opportunity to spend the day in the beach in a family mood with the local people. Then, with the sunset, you may enjoy a dinner of fresh fish at any of the inexpensive restaurants around the area.
The Real Club de Golf the Las Palmas is within 15-minute drive of the villa next to the stunning Caldera de Bandama, a 200-meter-deep volcanic crater, on whose peak you will find an observation platform that affords you a scenic vista of the island. Kill two birds with one stone!
