"Miguel's Shelter" is a rural cave house built in the late 19th century, it was digged into the stony mountains with the bare hands of the firsts landlords which has, through time, developed into what it is now, a cosy shelter in between the long wide valleys, sorrounded by nothing more than wild nature and peacefull ambience. Hiking, barbaque, sunbathin, walking around, home cinema, nights under clear sky full of stars, sightseeing area, family home, conforts from modern houses

San Mateo and Valsequillo and the nearby Tejeda are countryside towns where old lifestyle still remains, away from big cities, traffic and congestions they offer the perfect retirement spot for anyone looking for experiencing the feeling of waking up in between wild nature, pure air and a magic sky full of stars at nightfall. Nevertheless still offers the traveller and hosts all conforts such as restaurants, tourist information offices, modern medical facilities, or sports centres...
  • Alejandro’s place was incredible. From start to finish communication was great. Directions were clear and the place was easy to find despite being set up on the mountain side. The cave house is better than it looks in the photos and very private. The house has all amenities you could want for a comfortable stay.

  • Truly breathtaking views and a perfect cosy accommodation for a quiet stay away from the city.

  • Great stay

  • Absolutely loved this location. The space was great, the views were amazing and the hot tub is wonderful. The area has some stray cats and a lot of cacti so if you have allergies, being antihistamines. The host is friendly, checked up on us by text and gave us some tips on where to go. Highly recommend this place <3

  • Can't say enough nice things about this place. We spend three weeks in the Canary Islands and this place was the highlight. One of the best AirBnBs I've ever stayed in. Wish we could have stayed a whole month.

  • Alejandros place was excellent. My family and I loved staying here. You feel like you’re in your own private paradise! It is out there and requires some confident driving on tight twisty roads and with the whole being out in nature, you may come across some nature like bugs! I left with some bug bites but totally worth it! For older folks just be weary of walking down the steps into the Airbnb at night. My clumsy dad took a little tumble! The hot tub was fantastic, the kitchen was great for making meals at night, I woke up early every morning for the sunrise (I hate waking up). Would definitely come back in a heartbeat... thank you Alejandro for being so helpful and always communicating when I had a question about something.

  • This is a magic place. You are pretty much in the middle of nowhere. But you can get to the other parts of the island fairly easily with your car (which is necessary). The place is unique. Rustic, amazing views, quiet, peaceful, surrounded by nature. The jacuzzi is absolutely perfect after a long day of hiking. Especially now since the weather was getting colder. There are tons of amenities and small details that make the stay extremely personal and different. San Mateo is a short drive away with restaurants, grocery stores and a wonderful market on the weekend that should not be missed. Alejandro is a top notch host. He was in contact with us almost daily just to make sure everything was going well. Easy instructions for finding the place and checking in and using the amenities. Stay for at least 3 nights. The place grows on you as your stress disappears.

    Marc2019-11-07T00:00:00Z
  • Incredible views from a very unique space. Alejandro has created a lovely house providing everything you could want to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. You definitely need a car when staying here but don’t be put off by the mountain roads, it’s totally worth it. All of the basic essentials for cooking are provided. The hot tub is a real highlight! Would recommend taking a trip to Roque Nublo and Triana in Las Palmas. San Mateo is just down the road to stock up on beers and supplies! Like other reviews have said, the pictures do not do the views justice. Alejandro is easy to contact and left very detailed instructions for the house making the whole stay a breeze.

    Vega de San Mateo, Canarias, Spain

    Stone cottage in typical style. The ideal place to discover the Island. Set in a quiet valley near the historical town of Teror. It is all about charm, not perfection. Beautiful views and garden. By booking our accommodation you can be sure not to rent a house or apartment that would otherwise be available for long term rentals on the local market. The house and studio we offer for rent are guest houses, part of our property. They do not have their own electricity and water meters.
    The small house has a bedroom with double bed, living-room with kitchen and dining area and an outdoor bathroom. Equipment : - fridge - toaster - water-boiler - coffee machine - micro-wave - 2 induction cooking plates - free- wifi - music appliance with usb entry - electric heating for the winter In the bathroom : - shower - hairdryer Also available : - laundry service - barbecue In the garden : - umbrella - table and seats
    A quiet and green valley in the mid- mountains of Gran Canaria, at an altitude of 850 m. There is a shop and a restaurant in the village at 400 m Possibility for walks in the neighborhood. Only half a hour by car from the best walking places and half an hour from the city and beach. 3,5 km away from Teror. What's the valley like? It is dotted with some houses, terraces with agriculture and fruit trees, Casa Los Castaños is best suited to adventurous, creative NATURE LOVERS who do not mind both the sounds and calls of the wild and the sheer absolute sound of silence too. The calls of the wild can range from birds singing to owls hooting, frogs chanting and dogs calling to each other at times. Sometimes there will be a tractor on the potato fields. The valley is even green during the summer when the rest of the Island is very dry and dusty. Driving 30 minutes further up the mountains, you arrive to the pine-filled slopes and ravines of the impressive volcanic centre and its villages like Tejeda and Artenara. Las Palmas, the cosmopolitan capital of Gran Canary island, is 30 minutes away. It has one of the top urban city beaches, Las CANTERAS with its coral reef. There is also the historical area of VEGUETA, where you will find a wealth of restaurants, bars and an incredible choice of cultural activities from live music to theatre to dance.
  • Karin's accommodation is truly wonderful, with all the warmth and cosiness of a home. I arrived exhausted, and left rested and restored - by the company, the peaceful surroundings and the wonderful blue skies. Driving in the area is challenging - best suited for drivers who are confident on small mountainous roads - but there are lovely walks locally and public transport is available. I highly recommend Karin's hillside house for anyone who is looking for a very special retreat in the hills.

    Aran2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Very cozy accommodation with a wonderful natural location and friendly hostess. We felt very comfortable. We can only recommend it.

    Wilfrid2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice accommodation near Teror, ideal for hiking or cycling in the mountains, highly recommended, anytime again !!

    Andreas2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was perfect. The house is very beautiful, located far away from tourists. Clean and cozy. Karin is an amazing hostess. She is helpful and caring. Definitely recommend. Definitely going back.

    Georgios2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for accommodation outside the tourist areas of the island and love nature, this is the place for you! A house of your own, lovingly designed and furnished, awaits you. The outdoor area offers a wide view over the whole valley and invites you to relax. The natural, lush flora of the island grows right on your doorstep! If you want to leave this little paradise, you can reach the next nice small town in 15min by car. There you have all the infrastructure and country-typical flair. To the sea / Las Palmas you need a quarter of an hour longer. Karin is a very lovable host with good insider tips. Always responsive and helpful. In short: it was a very nice stay!

    Dorothee2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Cozy place in a very idyllic location with friendly hosts! We were here in December and still got lucky with only sunny weather. Karin had advised us anyway to bring warm clothes for the evenings. The stone cottage is perfect for a couple, very cozy, private, equipped with everything you need and decorated with love for detail. You have a wonderful view over the mountains and the terrace fields. It is surrounded by a lovely garden and a terrace. Communication with Karin was great. She had a lot of tips for the area and the whole island.

    Janna2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • Great place in a quiet and beautiful location. If you like the mountain, it is a very special place.

    Ana2019-12-10T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful and cosy little house in the mountains near the charming village of Teror. We stayed at Karin's house for a whole week and everything was perfect. The surroundings are magnificent and Karin can give you useful tips - in several languages (e. g. German and Dutch) - for activities on the island. Highly recomendable!!!

  • The peace, tranquility and beauty of the landscape of the area is reflected in Karin's house, a beautiful rustic stylish and cozy apartment. Karin has been very helpful and kind with us and attentive to all the details. We would have just continued there more days, we will return!

    Ani2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is very stylish, with lots of love and useful details. The view is awesome and the location of the apartment invites you to relax. Gladly again.

    Natalja2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • As in the photos. We loved the decor and the tranquility. The small heating is nice. It's just a little dark .... a good excuse to turn on all the lights and candles. Perfect. The bed is just fine.

    Anne2019-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • Myself and my partner enjoyed a wonderful week at Karin's stone house in the mid-mountains. Off the beaten track, away from the tourist trail, we felt we could completely switch off and unwind. The house itself is beautiful, traditionally refurbished with some lovely touches. While we had a a lot of rainy weather during our stay, it did not stop us getting out and exploring things both on our doorstep (the Sunday market it Teror is worth a visit) and further afield in our hire car (be prepared for narrow, windy roads if you want to visit the best places! Though we were surprised to see the island also has a great bus network which will get you to even the remote villages). Karin was very friendly and kept in touch over the Airbnb website to give us tips on places to visit and when to go for the best views and weather, which we really appreciated! This included Roque Nublo and some beautiful valleys in the south. If we return to the island we will certainly be looking to book here again :)

    Rachel2019-11-20T00:00:00Z
  • Karin was great and we felt really comfortable. It was so clean and everything went really well. The apartment is so beautiful and decorated with so much love and chic. It was so nice that we were allowed to live in Karin's accommodation. And it was super clean and quiet. Great to recommend :-)

    Beatrice2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation I really liked and is a spotless oasis in the mountains, equipped with everything necessary. Here you can relax well after the excursions around the island.

    Claudia2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for a lovingly furnished accommodation away from the mass tourism is just right. The ideal starting point to explore the heart of the island. A rental car is highly recommended. Karin is a wonderful hostess and communication perfect. Of course I will come back very soon.

    Andreas2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Karin is a really kind and sweet host!! She is very welcoming and helpful and very delightful to speak to! The house is very beautiful, clean, and unique and we got everything we need! The surroundings are just astonishing. We really enjoyed our stay and we definitely would love to go back again.

The entire place provides wireless internet and a parking in front of the house on the road.

  • The apartment met our expectations. We wanted a quiet holiday and in this apartment this is possible. The view is as in the pictures. When we arrived, Diego showed us around town, so we knew where we could find the shops and restaurants, very helpful.

    Brigitte2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • We had a week at the beginning of February. The house is exactly as you see in the pictures. The views are wonderful....from your patio you can see right down to Las Canteras bay. It's quiet and restful. Having your own pool is such a luxury. It's cold but we were in most days. The house is sparkling clean and has everything you would need. I would say a car is necessary. Instead of rows of noisy restaurants and shops and tourists, you can retreat to the hills and enjoy your peace and calm and beauty. The big beach is only about 20/25 mins away. We swam in the sea a lot. Diego is a charming host and his family too. Very helpful and friendly. Thanks, Diego.

    Norma2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Diego's place. Diego is as great a host as the other reviews say, and it's all well deserved! He was warm, welcoming and went out of his way to give us a tour of the local area, pointing out pharmacies, shops, free parking areas and recommendations to eat and drink. The casita is wonderful - we really enjoyed the location being out of the main city and out of the tourist area. We hired a car so it was easy for us to get around - I think this would be a must, really. The view from the casita is beautiful! We didn't use the pool as the water was too cold, but we did take swimwear in the hope that it might have held a little heat. I'm sure it would be lovely and refreshing in a month or so! There were many little touches inside which were included - sweets, a couple of juices in the fridge, milk, sugar, a range of spices if you wished to cook for yourself. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for a beautiful location out of the hustle and bustle.

    Vicki2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Just home from an amazing holiday at Diego's place! I am not surprised that Diego has Superhost status, he really is super! The apartment is beautiful with everything you need and is really tastefully done. Having your own private pool with gorgeous views is amazing too. Diego took us around the local area and showed us the shops, restaurants etc and that was really helpful (and totally above the call of duty!) Both him and his family are warm and friendly but also totally left us to get on with our holiday without any intrusion. It was absolutely perfect! Recommended if you are a couple wanting a quiet, picturesque holiday away from the usual tourist spots. Hiring a car is recommended, go and explore the gorgeous mountains and pay a visit to Agaete, the natural swimming pools are wonderful! Thank you Diego!

    Julie2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay in Arucas at Diegos place! It is a beautiful view and his hospitality is great! Its smart to rent a car as you are a bit away from Las Palmas, and 45-60 minutes from the southern beaches were the weather is much better in the winter. Diego is very helpful, giving you a lot of Information about restaurants, cafes and all necesary. Would definitly recommend to all!

    Sjur2019-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • One of the best price-quality-ratio AirBnB places we've stayed in ever. Very clean, excellent location and Diego was not just friendly but a genuinely dedicated, helpful host. We would like to especially mention the welcome tour he gave with his own car of the surroundings and services in the neighbourhood, together with information of specialities and opening times of each restaurant and shop ( they differ from day to day not just from others but between themselves). The apartment is the basement floor of the house where Diego lives with his family on the other floors. There is also extra heating to help with the winter months. However, driving a rental car is a necessity, since the house is on a steep hill on the outskirts of a small village. But it makes a perfect base for all kinds of excursions: the beaches and Las Palmas as well as the mountains and national parks are all within a close reach, shops and restaurants not more than a 10 minute drive away. No reservations to recommend for one or two people (or up to two plus baby).

    Markus2019-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • Brilliant host, outstanding hospitality. Diego is such a rare, genuine person. Perfect accommodation and breathtaking views.

    Timea2019-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • Diego is a very hospitable host is available, he even picked us up from the airport as we were unable to rent the car after landing after our flight was delayed. The house is exactly like in the picture, clean, organized, Diego took care of letting us find water in the fridge and the essentials for breakfast, the kitchen is very well equipped. The outdoor terrace has a beautiful view, too bad not to have been able to use the pool because of the rain.

    Laura2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • What a fabulous place! We had a great stay, we were made to feel very special with a lovely welcome platter & little treats through the week. The breakfast is well worth the additional cost.

    Richard Windsor2020-02-08T00:00:00Z

    Estrella2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Very spacious, bright and clean. Very detailed, attentive and friendly. Very green area of the island. Thanks for everything

    Ana2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay. Very friendly and hospitable lady who spoils her guests with all kinds of extras. The swimming pool water is still too cold in January to really enjoy it. In the summer this beautiful swimming pool will be a paradise.

    Freddy2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Rosario's place is tucked away up a narrow access road but it is easy to find with Rosario's instructions. It was great to have the use of the indoor pool which is not heated so mid afternoon in winter is the warmest time to use it. The apartment is in the north of the island and in the hills so can be 6C colder than the beaches in the south. We used all of the cooking equipment (except the indoor BBQ) and found it adequate. Having a dishwasher was a plus. The apartment is equipped with a wet room area with a strong shower and plenty of hot water. The apartment was quiet and restful and was great to come back to after a busy day exploring the island. We enjoyed our stay.

    Phil2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • Great place and fantastic hosts. We had a great time and felt the most welcome by Rosario and her family. This place has a lot of character but proved to be practical. The tv is in German so there is a chance to improve your language skills. :)) The water in the swimming pool is not the warmest but it's something you can get used to after a day or two. Overall it is a charming place with a very friendly and helpful host and nice surroundings.

    Agata2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation is great with great attention to detail. The location is quiet, just as we wanted it to be. The communication was great and we were happy about a very loving first breakfast. We recommend.

  • Aythami and his father gave us a very warm welcome. The view from the terrace is splendid. This troglodyte house has a real family history.

    Patrick2019-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • By far the best Airbnb we have ever stayed in. Absolutely everything about the property exceeded all expectations- the beds were comfortable, everything was sparkling clean, the pool , location, views were all absolutely incredible! What really made a difference for us was Aythami- he went above an beyond to make sure our trip was perfect, gave us tips for things to do on the island, he was always so kind,helpful and professional - this is what Airbnb is all about! We can’t recommend Casa Lola enough! Thank you again!

    Aimee2019-05-09T00:00:00Z
  • Gorgeous views & a true relaxing retreat. The place is even better than the pictures, you are staying in a family built cave house overlooking the stunning hills. Very clean, host is lovely helping you check in and gave us lots of recommendations for local spots to visit. Highly recommend, you won’t regret at all! Tips I’d give is stock up on food before arrival, restaurants aren’t a super close walk; chilly on a night as in caves and up high so bring snuggly PJs; and be prepared to walk down steep hill & over the cave roof to enter Casa Lola. The host will give you arrival directions but we just entered address in GPS then parked outside Bar Antonio P and house is just down the road from there - once you know very easy.

    Florence2019-05-05T00:00:00Z
  • A unique property, that is rural and lets you experience the island as a local rather than the 1000's of tourists. The views from the property are amazing! Well worth a visit

    Ketan2019-04-26T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful surroundings and stunning view. The house is great for a family or friends. We were not so lucky with the weather, but I imagine that the house would be perfect in good weather.

    Bjørg Berg2019-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • From love to work !!! A house like a fairy tale, a breathtaking view! Authentic and beautiful !! Thanks to Aythami continue !!!!

    Tanja2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Hajdin and his wife are warm-hearted, kind and incredibly attentive hosts. Throughout our stay, we had some wonderful conversations with them, and they even brought up a big bag of organic homegrown mandarins for us to try (they were delicious!). The house was warm and cozy (it is small but has everything you could want or need), the bed is comfortable, and the couch downstairs is the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine/play a game with your significant other. The kitchen is very small and practical. The view from the terrace is magnificent, it is a great private space perfect for relaxing in a hammock, reading, doing yoga, and enjoying some scrumptious Spanish meals. Undeniably, what made it extra special for us was the quality time spent here with the most affectionate, precious little kitten of the house, Amado. The driveway is quite steep but completely manageable in most rental cars (our convertible was a bit low to the ground and scraped a little bit, but if you are careful it is completely fine). All-in-all, 10/10 would stay again (in a heartbeat... take me back!!!).

  • Really enjoyed my stay here. I was made to feel very welcome, and got some local tips for things to do nearby. The house is lovely- perfect for a solo traveller or a couple, with some cracking views down the valley to Las Palmas. Quiet and secluded, perfect for a wee break

    Richard2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect place for a couple. The house is super well decorated and warm. The terrace allows you to enjoy the temperate climate and the landscape. If you are looking for a place nature and calm it's perfect. A car is however essential to discover the island. Nothing to complain about the rental. Cleanliness and small intentions. Thanks again for the welcome!

  • Total disconnection, the house earns much more than in the images, undoubtedly from the best discoveries of Airbnb, Marina always attentive, she facilitated us both in and out, without a doubt we already have our place for a mandatory getaway

    Cristian2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • The house has a lot of potential for parties / barbecue / birthdays etc. But if you are looking to disconnect, you will find a wide, quiet, secluded and full of life place. With beautiful sunsets, a perfect place to read a good book and escape from the daily routine. The townspeople are very friendly!

  • Better than it seems, amazing stay

    Ilias2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • My partner and I stayed 4 days in the cabin and we had few! We were a little suspicious of not having comments and making the decision suddenly .. But we do not regret it. The photos do not do it justice !! The site is ideal to disconnect, you breathe peace and harmony. The land is a joy and the cabin, with the fireplace lit at night, is indescribable! The communication with Marina was very easy and resolved all the doubts we had quickly and kindly. What made the arrival and departure easy, in fact we were able to extend the departure time. The gardener very friendly and attentive, from here we thank him again for the oranges he took for our morning juices the days we stayed, we were able to bring us a couple to continue enjoying them at home. We have already recommended it to all our contacts and, no doubt, we will repeat!

  • Alfredo's house has all the necessary amenities to enjoy a few days of peace and tranquility in the mountains. The Villa de Teror, a few kilometers away, has the essential commercial places to stock up on food and visit the Canarian native culture. Alfredo is a very kind and friendly person, always willing to help, clarify doubts and make the stay completely enjoyable. Highly recommended to stay at home.

  • Alfredo's apartment is wonderful. Very easy to reach, yet quiet with a beautiful view of the mountains. There are fresh rolls in the shop around the corner and the terrace is the perfect place for a delicious breakfast. Alfredo is a great host who had lots of tips for sights, events and food.

    Stefanie2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • The ideal house in the mountains. We really liked it! We were by car. But near the house there is a bus stop. Near the city of Terror, there is a gas station, a supermarket and a cafe. I really liked the lanterns on the terrace of the house and a lot of small cute interior details. Thanks to Alfredo for arranging us an easy late check-in.

    Welcome to Camino Art Hostel, San Mateo. We invite you to spend a few days at our supernatural cozy cave room. No electricity, only pure nature. The main building is about 170 meters from the cave where you can use the kitchen, bathroom etc.. The Cave Room is in our valley, and a perfect place for a mini-escape.
    People lived in caves on Gran Canaria from the very beginning of the aboriginal time. Later it became a tradition even in the modern time. In San Mateo people used caves mostly in agriculture, they had animals in them, stored tools for gardening. We have 8 caves on our land, and we turned two of them to cozy rooms but we didn't touch nature. The walls are rocks, and there is no electricity. To sleep in this caves offers you the best quality of sleep, as the caves are naturally dark, quiet, the temperature are naturally balanced and it is always around 17C which gives nice a cool feeling in summer heat and warm feeling in the winter days when temperature drops to 8 or 10 C outside in the night. There is no mobile network coverage in the cave, so it clears you from all types of radio waves as well. To be in the cave is a real escape from the outside world and real connection to nature.
    Vega de San Mateo is famous for agriculture. The name Vega, means wetland, and it makes it understandable why the land is so green and rich. This is a wonderful unique zone of the island, and it is about 700 meters above sea level. In winter we might have rainy days, but a very green landscape.
  • This place is very special .. so in tune with the natural land and surroundings. Minimal impact and honouring nature in a beautiful way.

    Indie2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Great house. The troglodyte cave is a good experience to spend a night!

    Barthélémy2020-02-25T00:00:00Z

  • Beata’s hostel is unique. It is much more than an air bnb service, it is feeding yourself as a human being. It is an opportunity to get yourself into the nature and to meet people who will fulfill your heart and you will always remember. Ensure yourself an unforgettable stay, book an accommodation in the caves! Maria Chiara and Andrea

    Maria Chiara2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • This place is quite possibly the nicest place I have ever stayed at, the house is so unique and welcoming, the surroundings are stunning and the hosts are super nice! To sleep in the cave room was a great experience! Thank you so much!

    The house is located in Teror,a very nice village. As you can see in the pictures the house has an ethnic style. I also try to decorate the house to transmit peace a relaxation to all who enjoy the stay. The room is quite big and has a closet to keep your stuff. You will share the house with me and one or two helpers. You can get ecological mandarins from the garden.
    The house is located at almost 600 meters high and it's a very green area so make sure you get proper clothes before you come. We have a rocket stove as you can see in the pictures.
    I love that house is located to 60 metres over the road so we don't listen any car. It is also not in the centre of the village but just need 10 minutes walking to get there.

    In the high-lying interior of the island of Gran Canaria, you will find “La Casa de Arriba". Built 300 years ago “The House on the Hill” is a traditional Canarian house lovingly restored with an enviable location overlooking the hamlet of Arbejales, near the well-known colonial town and tourist destination of Teror. There is also the possibility of renting the entire house for up to 6 people. Check our other listings.
    ‘La Casa de Arriba’ is nestled in a tranquil landscape offering on one side a view of fertile valleys as far as the eye can see halted only by the ocean, and on the other, a rising tsunami of volcanic slopes with lush vegetation soaring towards the highest point of the island. La Casa de Arriba – fully equipped to meet the needs of all guests, welcomes you to simply relax & unwind or base yourselves here for more energetic activities. My wife Nathalie and I have a passion for travelling and have spent several years looking for the ideal location to build our dream, a warm & welcoming place to share with other people who, like us, love new encounters and the beauty of nature. We arrived in Gran Canaria and immediately fell under the spell of the island and its inhabitants, and it was love at first site when we discovered ‘La Casa de Arriba’. We began what has been over a year of rebuilding, renovating and remodelling this house to make a home for ourselves and for visitors who want to discover the island. Both of the en-suite rooms are beautifully designed, spacious and very comfortable. The communal space on the ground floor offers an open-plan, fully-equipped kitchen with basic necessities for cooking and making tea and coffee, a large kitchen table with chairs and a furnished living area with a comfy sofa and chairs. The beautiful outdoor area is cleverly designed to allow you to be alone with your thoughts or to socialise with other guests while enjoying the views.
    There is a local shop and a Canarian bar a few minutes walk from the house and the tourist and sports activities on the island are numerous and varied: hiking, paragliding, cycling, beach, diving, museums, shopping ... There is something for everyone! The colonial town of Teror, home to the island’s patron saint ‘La Virgen del Pino’/ ‘Virgin of the Pine’ is a short drive or less than an hour’s walk away, and boasts a beautiful historic centre and the famous basilica built in homage to ‘La Virgen del Pino’. The colourful, weekly Sunday market, the most popular on the island, offers up local culinary delicacies along with religious accessories and much more. The vibrant capital of Las Palmas is a 35-minute drive away also reachable by public transport, and here you can wander the colonial streets and visit Christopher Columbus’ house, soak up the views from the cathedral tower, and delight in the quaint shopping area of Triana. "Las Canteras" with its’ 3kms of promenade and beautiful sandy beach is the perfect place to take a dip, surf, suntan and then enjoy drinks or a meal at some of its’ numerous bars and restaurants. On a clear day you can look out across the sea and see the ghostly outline of Tenerife !
  • 100% recommended :) We really enjoyed the days there! The cottage is super nicely decorated with great attention to detail and clever attentions. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need - the rooms are very cozy and authentic ... Canarian style mixed with modern technology and furnishings! The location is ideal if you want to get to know the north of the island - and so for us as residents of Gran Canaria, the holiday was a real discovery tour. Lucien was generously at his side with many tips and goodies from his field. We admire the commitment and the talent that the two showed in their renovation project and will definitely go there again!

    Janine2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • ✰✰✰✰✰ 5/5 Such a nice hosts you are! Thank you for showing us places worth to visit and guiding us to hiking trails we didn't knew. Lucien is amazing guy who have lot of stories to tell. Every morning while talking with him we had perfect breakfast of fresh baked bread from local bakery and avocados picked from their garden. We admire how they put an effort in a tiniest details while creating a place that is as it is now. The 300 years old house was revived by their own hands which is really inspiring. Everything is fresh new and crystal clean. At first we booked for 5 days but we extended our stay for one more day. We had a perfect week at your place and we really miss you guys! Grete & Edmundas

    Gretė2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • We recommend 200% !! A super warm welcome, a beautiful house recently renovated, everything you need to feel comfortable and welcomed. It is an ideal place from which to shine to go and discover nature, the surrounding small villages, or Las Palmas.

    Lucile2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • The house/ cottage in itself with its story, atmosphere and the quality in every details, local food for breakfast, a host that adapts your needs/ desires and facilitates, the hospitality, the peace and natural sounds around and the location as a good starting point for different activities (like cycling, running or hiking caminorails from outside the door or in the mountains around Cruz de Tejeda, visit villages like Moya, Firgas og Arucas or the city Las Palmas with its restaurant, ocean beach promenade and so on), make this place a good combination of many qualities. If you want to experience the very best of Gran Canaria, this is the place.

    Jan Terje2019-11-29T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time at La Casa de Arriba ! The house is beautiful, the views are spectacular and the hosts are attentive and friendly! Everything you need is provided with the attention to details! The breakfast is delicious and the communal room where you can cook, socialise and relax is a definite bonus. Lucien is very knowledgeable about the island and the area, and gave us lots of useful information. The location is quiet which is ideal to rest after a day out touring this beautiful island! We will definitely go back there again! Thank you Lucien and Nathalie :)

    In unserem typisch kanarischen Haus am Kamin können sie die Abende und Ruhe geniessen, nachdem sie die Insel erkundet haben. Ein idealer Ausgangspunkt für Wanderfreunde und Inselforscher. Wir liegen im grünen Teil der Insel,fernab vom Massentourismus
    Ein gemütliches Häuschen im kanarischen Bauernstil. 2 Schlafzimmer mit jeweils einem Doppelbett. Esszimmer, ein Balkon und eine Terrasse.
    Das Dorf Santa Brigida liegt 5 Autominuten entfernt. Dort gibt es gute Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und Restaurants.
  • The calm is a typical typical Canarian farm. It is far from the masses, in a very quiet place. It has lovely corners, like the balcony or the patio. It has everything you need and the hosts are very welcoming and friendly. From the calm they leave walking routes to go to a centenary dragon tree or to reach the town of Santa Brígida. We have had an amazing week!

    Jordi2019-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great week at Ilka and Dirck in Santa Brigida. We recommend this perfectly maintained accommodation and guests whose kindness and responsiveness are remarkable. In addition, its location away from the coast allows you to quickly taste the wonders of this volcanic island in spring.

    Pierre2019-04-20T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you for the magical stay. We really enjoyed sitting by the fireplace in the evening and having the great view from the balcony during the day. The house was decorated very charming and Illka took great care of us. Just to hike and really switch off highly recommended!

  • A wonderful place for those who like Gran Canaria away from the south. Everything is reached very quickly and the accommodation is excellent. The house and the wonderful hosts have great charm. Only to be recommended!

    Alfred2019-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage "El Sosiego" was in November 2016 for a week, our home. We have felt very comfortable here. The equipment is very extensive, especially the kitchen equipment made us astonished, because we found a lot more than we expected - even many of the basic food were available. Fast Internet was also available. A special highlight were the evenings by the fireplace, which unfortunately does not exist for us at home. The hosts Ilka and Dirk are very friendly and are always available with advice and practical help. Santa Brigida is a nice town and a good starting point for excursions in the closeby mountain region. But the sea is visible from here in a short time. As a tip for dinner we can recommend the "Casa del Vino" highly that offers excellent cuisine and great wine. All in all it was a wonderful week in a special ambience. We would come back. Thanks again to Dirk for his lovely parting gifts. Will we cherish! Andrea and Andi from Stuttgart

    Santa Brigida, Gran Canaria, Spain

    Casa Maria is over a hundred years old fully renovated traditional country house which is situated in the mountains of Gran Canaria, in a quiet and green centuries` old village of Arbejales, in the vicinity of the historical colonial town of Teror. It is an ideal place for rest and getting to know the island`s real life for those whose understanding of holiday destinations is not limited to only “tourist magnets on the beach”.
    CASA MARIA is situated on a hillside, from the terraces of which one can see the highest peak of the island Pico de Las Nieves (1949 m from the sea level) in the south and the ocean (829 m lower than Casa Maria) together with the Las Palmas lighthouse in the north. Down in the valley, just in a 10- minute walking distance one can find the village centre with the Sacred Heart church (La iglesia del Sagrado Corazon de Jesus), built in 1918, a shop and a restaurant. Despite having lived on the island for three years, this place still seems mystic and spectacular to us, due to clouds that pass through from time to time, and alternating colors on hillsides. In order to create a cosy atmosphere, we have established a private studio with a separate entrance for our guests on the ground floor (36m2) with fully equipped kitchen, WC- bathroom and two beds. In the kitchen one finds all the basic cooking supplies like salt, pepper, sugar, olive oil, flour, coffee, tea… On the same terrace there is also a partially covered wooden terrace equipped with wooden garden furniture, for the use of our guests only. The courtyard area together with the orchard welcomes you to explore or just be alone with your thoughts in one of the leisure corners. Ripe fruits and herbs and free for use. As we come from Northern parts of the world ourselves, we also have an exotic smoke-scented wood- heated sauna which is very rare on the Canaries! We can heat it up for you for a small contribution. Our previous floating home, sailboat MARTHA, still resides at the harbor of Las Palmas (25 km from Casa Maria) and a small cruise in the vicinity on the capital is possible on agreement, or why not even a longer trip to one of the neighboring islands.

    The home of Hillar and Meeli - CASA MARIA is situated in Spain, on the Canary Islands, on the third biggest island of Gran Canaria (1560 m2). You can find the house 5 km south of the colonial town of Teror, in a village of Arbejales, which is located slightly north from the centre of the island. Arbejales is a nice church village where scattered houses alternate with beautiful farmlands. It is a place for taking shorter or longer walks, enjoying nature and views. Teror is also just an hour of walk away. Teror is one of the most famous and beautiful towns on the island because of its architecture of wooden balconies and the basilica built in the honor of Virgen del Pino, which is the pilgrimage destination for the islanders. Both here and in San Mateo which is situated south of Arbejales, one can visit typical colorful market days on Sundays. Just a short drive away one can find Tejeda and Artenara with a cave house museum, Firgas and Moya, San Bartolome de Terajana and Santa Lucia. There is much to see in each of these places, not to mention the spectacular views and untouched nature. The closest sandy beach Playa de Las Canteras in Las Palmas is 40- minute- drive away, also the beach in Sardina. One can get to the famous Maspalomas sand dunes in the south within an hour.
  • Best of any expectations! Hillar and Meel are very careful and nice, they had a lot of interesting story to tell and very enjoing peaple! We loved to share a time in their house, and desfrute this privileged view on the valley, a short walk to Teror and a very closer trip to the beach. Thanks for all!

    In the high-lying interior of the island of Gran Canaria, you will find “La Casa de Arriba". Built 300 years ago “The House on the Hill” is a traditional Canarian house lovingly restored with an enviable location overlooking the hamlet of Arbejales, near the well-known colonial town and tourist destination of Teror. There is also the possibility of renting the entire house for up to 6 people. Check our other listings.
    ‘La Casa de Arriba’ is nestled in a tranquil landscape offering on one side a view of fertile valleys as far as the eye can see halted only by the ocean, and on the other, a rising tsunami of volcanic slopes with lush vegetation soaring towards the highest point of the island. La Casa de Arriba – fully equipped to meet the needs of all guests, welcomes you to simply relax & unwind or base yourselves here for more energetic activities. My wife Nathalie and I have a passion for travelling and have spent several years looking for the ideal location to build our dream, a warm & welcoming place to share with other people who, like us, love new encounters and the beauty of nature. We arrived in Gran Canaria and immediately fell under the spell of the island and its inhabitants, and it was love at first site when we discovered ‘La Casa de Arriba’. We began what has been over a year of rebuilding, renovating and remodelling this house to make a home for ourselves and for visitors who want to discover the island. Both of the en-suite rooms are beautifully designed, spacious and very comfortable. The communal space on the ground floor offers an open-plan, fully-equipped kitchen with basic necessities for cooking and making tea and coffee, a large kitchen table with chairs and a furnished living area with a comfy sofa and chairs. The beautiful outdoor area is cleverly designed to allow you to be alone with your thoughts or to socialise with other guests while enjoying the views.
    There is a local shop and a Canarian bar a few minutes walk from the house and the tourist and sports activities on the island are numerous and varied: hiking, paragliding, cycling, beach, diving, museums, shopping ... There is something for everyone! The colonial town of Teror, home to the island’s patron saint ‘La Virgen del Pino’/ ‘Virgin of the Pine’ is a short drive or less than an hour’s walk away, and boasts a beautiful historic centre and the famous basilica built in homage to ‘La Virgen del Pino’. The colourful, weekly Sunday market, the most popular on the island, offers up local culinary delicacies along with religious accessories and much more. The vibrant capital of Las Palmas is a 35-minute drive away also reachable by public transport, and here you can wander the colonial streets and visit Christopher Columbus’ house, soak up the views from the cathedral tower, and delight in the quaint shopping area of Triana. "Las Canteras" with its’ 3kms of promenade and beautiful sandy beach is the perfect place to take a dip, surf, suntan and then enjoy drinks or a meal at some of its’ numerous bars and restaurants. On a clear day you can look out across the sea and see the ghostly outline of Tenerife !
  • The cottage is as lovely as the hosts, Lucien and Nathalie! The house has been beautifully renovated, everything was spotless, clean and tidy. We loved it all, especially the stunning sunny views of the lush valley. Lucien and Nathalie are both super friendly, down to earth and gave us lots of local tips for hiking, food and festivities. An excellent place to stay. Highly recommended!

    Yan-Yee2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice accommodation, the location is just fantastic and quiet. The rooms are very well equipped and modern. This accommodation is only recommended and the most beautiful we have found in the Canary Islands.

    Jonas2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Very pleasant casa rural restored with taste or it feels very good in an authentic nature, with very good lunch prepared by Lucien with good bread from the valley, very good advice for hikes that we prepared Lucien, In short! ! Perfect, I recommend this address

    Alain2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • It is a beautiful accommodation in a restored country house, all clean and impeccable, in a quiet location, Lucien is charming and friendly, and is always available. It is a highly recommended place to rest, be in touch with nature, although it is a bit isolated and I think that without a car it would be difficult to move around the island. I would return without a doubt !!

    Leila2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • I really enjoyed my stay with Nathalie and Lucien in the Casa de Arriba. The house has been restored with love and taste and is optimally equipped for travelers. A car is definitely an advantage to really explore the beauties of the island. I can only recommend a stay with Nathalie and Lucien!

  • We had a nice stay at Luisas. We didnt meet Luisa herself as we arrived a little earlier than expected so her Mum let us in. Luisas place had everything that we needed for our short stay. San Mateo is a great base for exploring the mountain region and we went for a lovely walk. The scenery is absolutely stunning.

    Julie2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Great apartment in a quiet village in the mountains! The only thing that could wake up in the early morning was the cry of a rooster. Of the advantages - a comfortable bed, the presence of a tumble dryer and a heater (this is very important in winter, because in Spain there is no central heating and the houses are very cold and do not dry), a convenient location for those who want to visit the mountains, the crater of the volcano, and not only beaches. Of the minuses - there is no electric or even an ordinary kettle (heated water in a saucepan), there was no tea, sugar and coffee in the house (and even soap ended almost immediately), very cold floors in winter (take warm socks and slippers). The parking is convenient, when compared with the options that were in this village :) But it is better not to arrive very late - there is a risk not to put the car in a convenient dead end near the entrance to the entrance.

    Elizaveta2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Luisa is a perfect hostess. He left us prepared everything we needed for our baby, even some amazing sheets for the crib. The house is clean as a whistle and we were very comfortable. The town is perfect for those who do not like tourist crowds. It is close to Las Palmas and the most emblematic places like the Roque Nublado or the Pico de las Nieves.

    Aleix2019-12-30T00:00:00Z

    Johanna2019-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • Impeccable accommodation, near the main street of San Mateo and very quiet to sleep, the bed is very comfortable. It has many brochures to know points of interest in the area and other municipalities as well as hiking. Luisa's treatment of us was unbeatable, always very attentive. In short, if you want to disconnect from the city and be more in touch with nature with the feeling of being at home, this is your ideal accommodation.

    Welcome to Camino Art Hostel, your little hide away place where you can recharge yourself with natural energies and inspiration. If you want to sit on the hillside, take long walks, wake up with singing birds, and meet people who want to do all of these, you are at the right place. We do farming, gardening, landscaping, we are very much involved in yoga and home cooking. If you are into these things, please come and visit us! This is your time for a little escape!
    Welcome to Camino Art Hostel! “SO WHAT IS A CONCEPT OF AN ART HOSTEL?” – asked me one of my volunteer. She was studying art therapy and was the first person giving me this question straight. “You know, when you make an art work, and you have the silence in you, and that focused attention, others might call it ‘flow’.. I want to have a place where you can have this feeling easily, a place which actually makes you create something, which inspires you. I would like to add tools in people’s hand to have this feeling, and I want to have the same, of course, I want to be inspired. And this creation can be anything, can be a song in the morning, a small drawing on a peace of tea filter paper, can be a sculpture made of mud. Can be anything, a small little thing..” I told her. And i think, this is still true, this is the philosophy of my hostel. (Bea, founder of CaminoArt)
  • A gipsy like hostel in the mountains, with an amazing view on the ocean and las Palmas, and for the ealybirds you'll have the chance to witness an amazing sunrise. I met some lovely people over there, the hosts/volunteers as the guests, were truly wonderful. The place itself is good, you don't need anything more, the kitchen-bathroom-dorm are decent. From the location, many daytrips or hikings can be made. Take your time there, and explore the area.

    Margaux2020-01-20T00:00:00Z

  • We were worried the house might be cold or a little basic, but we were wrong. For the price it is wonderful. Warm, clean, bright and spacious. The garden was lovely and the hosts were very friendly. Although we had a car we did use the bus from Last Palma's which runs every hour.

    Helen2019-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • La Casa Alegria is a beautiful finca set in stunning countryside. The garden of the finca is a dream and invites you to relax. The surrounding area is ideal for hiking and offers a refreshing nature experience. The week I spent there was a dream vacation for me. I was able to switch off well and let myself be infected by the relaxed mood. Hospitality is very important here. I felt very well looked after and had a really good time with great people. I did a guided hike with Jose. He chose a fantastic route and showed us the beauty of his homeland. If you want, you can also take part in the yoga class with Sara, who regularly takes place there. A great offer, which I once used. My special thanks go to Reinhold. He was very helpful and always had time for exciting discussions. I like to come back here. Many thanks to Sara, Reinhold and Jose. Until next time!

    Our home is full of light, full of love. It's beautifully decorated so you can feel at peace. Our surroundings are natural, green, loving... Come and share, connect with yourself, with your inner peace. Spend the time in mindfulness. Just enjoy the moment. It's here and now!! Feel freedom, joy, happiness!! It's a perfect place to do hiking and to visit the beautiful sites on the island. You are also near the beaches and town.
    Espacio amplio de dos plantas: En la planta baja se encuentra la cocina, comedor, baño y un salón grande con televisión y ordenador con acceso a Internet.

También cuenta con un patio lleno de plantas, un árbol, y lugares donde tomarte un té o café al atardecer, una hamaca para relajarte y dejarte mecer por el aire suave.

    This area is very quiet, ideal for resting, disconnecting, feeling nature, listening to birds. Walking around the house takes you to peace. The neighborhood is very nice. It is a very safe place where you can enjoy your free time completely.
  • Out of 72 previous Airbnb experiences in 13 different countries, I would place this one firmly in my top 5. It’s one of those stays that you feel privileged to experience and lucky to have chosen. The house itself is old style Canarian, but it’s elegantly furnished with real hippy chic and style. It’s spotlessly clean but not so you feel you daren’t touch anything - you feel comfortable and at home the moment you walk in. The 270 degree panoramic views from the terraces are hypnotic and there’s also a hammock to laze in. The hosts, Thomas and Hermi, are friendly, warm and approachable without seemingly going out of their way to be so, it’s just their natural way to be. I loved my stay and was reluctant to leave, I’d recommend it 100%. If I had to say a negative, it’s that future Airbnbs will not seem so good.

    Damian2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Super great Airbnb, with a stylish interior, in the middle of nature, view of the mountains and the sea. The hosts are very warm and hospitable and made me feel right at home from the first minute. Keep It Clean! Kitchen, own bathroom, bedroom, balcony, washing machine available. If you like it quiet and need some time for yourself, this is the place for you. Gladly again!

Close to the village of Vega de San Mateo, where there are all the necessary services. We recommend this accommodation!

    It is situated on the outskirts of the village of Las Lagunetas, which can be seen in the distance between the mountains from the terrace.
    It is situated on the outskirts of the village of Las Lagunetas, which can be seen in the distance between the mountains from the terrace. The layout of the house is on two floors; on the ground floor is the bathroom and the kitchen and on the top floor is the bedroom and the living room. The care and love with which the owner has decorated the house can be seen in every nook and cranny, so that guests feel at home.
    Any walk through the historic quarter of San Mateo must include a visit to the Parish Church of La Vega de San Mateo, located in Calle Principal (Main Street), where we find a two-nave building (the one of the left dates from 1800 and the one on the right from 1895). The upper middle part is crowned by a bell tower designed by Jose Lujan Perez. The church bell, added four years after it was made, was sent from Cuba by Canary Island emigrants from the area. This church shows a predominantly eclectic style with Neo-Classical influences. La Alameda de Santa Ana (Santa Ana Esplanade), next to the church, was built in 1943. To do this, the Council bought plots in the area that had been occupied by a bakery. The oven was situated where the Music Kiosk now stands. Along with the Town Hall and the Church, it now forms a fine example of Neo-Canary architecture. The countryside around La Vega de San Mateo is worth a trip too. Visitors can go to Roque Bicacaral, in La Bodeguilla, a natural lookout, half way to Santa Brigida, which offers magnificent views over the whole area. You can also take the route along La Mina Ravine, running along Las Lagunetas and La Yedra. There is permanent water in the ravine, which conserves the vestiges of laurel forest and the old water mills here. The Montaña Cabrera Look out, situated on the mountain of the same name, is a wonderful observatory overlooking the basin of the Guiniguada Ravine, the municipality and the Foothills of Gran Canaria, and even the city of Las Palmas. The La Cruz Natural Look out and El Montañon also offer excellent views over the municipality. Hoya del Gamonal, Roque and Cruz del Saucillo; form part of Las Cumbres Protected Natual Area, a place of extraordinary beauty with an intrinsic wealth of endemic species. Finally, there are several recreational areas where you can enjoy a day in the open air: The La Lechucilla Recreational Zone, just a few kilometres from the centre of the municipality and set in an area of chestnut trees, has an area for barbecues and the Llanos de Ana Lopez Recreational Zone, situated at the top of Cueva Grande in a pine forest and surrounded by the typical alpine vegetation of the Gran Canaria mountain tops. The Farmers’ Market is a weekly tradition in La Vega de San Mateo, every weekend. This shows just how important farming is in this area. Locals and visitors walk around the market in search of fresh fruit, vegetables, cheeses, etc. You can also see the local handicrafts in the same market. The local cheese is excellent, as is the wine, which, due to its high quality, gives prestige to the wine cellars of the municipality.

It's worth waking up to watch the sunrise in the valley below from the terrace! The house was perfect, great cooking facilities, although you'll need to buy anything more than salt and pepper to get you started. Smart TV's for those chilly night's in. The Pool and Jacuzzi are heated (or warm enough to use despite the cool mountain air). Thanks for a wonderful stay x

  • Wonderful base for walks and excursions in the mountains of the interior of Gran Canaria. Beautiful view from window and terrace on the valley and the mountains. The apartment is part of a beautifully converted house or farm. With 2 more apartments, the swimming pool and jacuzzi are shared. The apartment is spacious, clean and fully equipped. in winter it can be cold at night, but the heating is sufficient. Good quality beds and materials, nice decor. Alba, the hostess responds quickly to Whatsapp messages.

  • If you want to enjoy the hills of Gran Canaria, away from the crowded coastal resorts, this is a fabulous place to stay - three apartments which can be rented separately (we only rented out the Upper House), or which can be joined together for a bigger family or group. The setting is great, with wonderful walks all around, and beautiful views down to the sea around Las Palmas. The house itself has been newly, and very cleverly, converted by Alba's and her family from an older house, so it has the feeling of a traditional structure, with lots of different levels and terraces, but all the amenities and fittings are completely up to date. And finally Alba and her father, Victoriano, are wonderful hosts, and go out of their way to make sure that you have everything you need. They don't live in the village, but the ever-friendly Pedro is on hand to take care of any little problems that might come up. Highly recommended as a wonderful holiday venue

  • This has been my best airbnb experience. Lisi's place is perfectly clean, comfortable, and very pretty. There was everything I could need and more in the house. The garden is perfect for bbq's and relaxing and a most amazing spot for early morning yoga overlooking the valley. The location was extremely beautiful. I was on a walking holiday on my own with no car and enjoyed the variety of local trails in the mountains and pine forests. There is a reliable bus service for local travel. Lisi was an exceptional host, always ready to help and answered messages promptly. She also acted as a most helpful taxi service, taking me to the house and then back to the airport which made my journeys much more pleasant and stress free.

  • Lisi is a great host. House was really nice, clean and well furnished with beautiful view.

  • Very cozy house and great terrace with orange groves, barbecue, ... The house and the terrace are not connected to each other but all the same. Also, leave many things for breakfast or snack, highly recommended.

    Benayga2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommended. Lisi is a very good hostess, always attentive to answer, leave a small breakfast and charcoal for the barbecue. The house is very cozy, the environment is very beautiful although the views are limited. Very well equipped, especially the kitchen, all in great detail and clean. Special mention to the terrace, for me the best of the house.

    Joshua Jesus2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Lisi's accommodation is charming, tastefully decorated and with everything you need so you don't miss anything. It is noteworthy the heating (in winter it is appreciated), the barbecue and the solarium area with views, in addition to all the details that make your stay very cozy. If I return to the area, I will repeat without a doubt!

    Ana2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • A very pleasant stay at Lisi's, in a very cozy little house near the hiking departures.

  • Super great view from outside the room! The room is located on the top of a mountain house with a lot of fruit in the garden. We came at January so it is a bit cool in the nice but there is enough blanket in the room. Very recommended place to stay!

    In the high-lying interior of the island of Gran Canaria, you will find “La Casa de Arriba". Built 300 years ago “The House on the Hill” is a traditional Canarian house lovingly restored with an enviable location overlooking the hamlet of Arbejales, near the well-known colonial town and tourist destination of Teror.
    ‘La Casa de Arriba’ is nestled in a tranquil landscape offering on one side a view of fertile valleys as far as the eye can see halted only by the ocean, and on the other, a rising tsunami of volcanic slopes with lush vegetation soaring towards the highest point of the island. La Casa de Arriba – fully equipped to meet the needs of all guests, welcomes you to simply relax & unwind or base yourselves here for more energetic activities. My wife Nathalie and I have a passion for travelling and have spent several years looking for the ideal location to build our dream, a warm & welcoming place to share with other people who, like us, love new encounters and the beauty of nature. We arrived in Gran Canaria and immediately fell under the spell of the island and its inhabitants, and it was love at first site when we discovered ‘La Casa de Arriba’. We began what has been over a year of rebuilding, renovating and remodelling this house to make a home for ourselves and for visitors who want to discover the island. Both of the en-suite rooms are beautifully designed, spacious and very comfortable. The communal space on the ground floor offers an open-plan, fully-equipped kitchen with basic necessities for cooking and making tea and coffee, a large kitchen table with chairs and a furnished living area with a comfy sofa and chairs. The beautiful outdoor area is cleverly designed to allow you to be alone with your thoughts or to socialise while enjoying the views.
    There is a local shop and a Canarian bar a few minutes walk from the house and the tourist and sports activities on the island are numerous and varied: hiking, paragliding, cycling, beach, diving, museums, shopping ... There is something for everyone! The colonial town of Teror, home to the island’s patron saint ‘La Virgen del Pino’/ ‘Virgin of the Pine’ is a short drive or less than an hour’s walk away, and boasts a beautiful historic centre and the famous basilica built in homage to ‘La Virgen del Pino’. The colourful, weekly Sunday market, the most popular on the island, offers up local culinary delicacies along with religious accessories and much more. The vibrant capital of Las Palmas is a 35-minute drive away also reachable by public transport, and here you can wander the colonial streets and visit Christopher Columbus’ house, soak up the views from the cathedral tower, and delight in the quaint shopping area of Triana. "Las Canteras" with its’ 3kms of promenade and beautiful sandy beach is the perfect place to take a dip, surf, suntan and then enjoy drinks or a meal at some of its’ numerous bars and restaurants. On a clear day you can look out across the sea and see the ghostly outline of Tenerife !
  • The restored house was amazingly well done. Great design and well decorated. Lucien was very welcoming and helpful with tips and other information about Gran Canaria. We had a great stay.

    Brett & Lavonne2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed a week at the Casa de arriba at Nathalie and Lucien's. We had an exceptional stay in this magical place. We felt at home. Nothing was missing. We appreciated the impeccable cleanliness, the neat decoration, the welcoming terrace suitable for breakfasts overlooking the green nature. Lucien's hospitality and availability were very pleasant. This house is a real cozy nest where life is good. If you go through Teror, this is an address that we highly recommend! Go ahead with your eyes closed ... but don't forget to open them from time to time so as not to miss a turn

  • Lucien and Nathalie are awesome hosts. The place is absolutely perfect with everything you need. The house is stylish with its specific atmosphere, meanwhile it's modern and luxurious. It's a great starting point for exploring the island with Lucien's excellent advices. We hope to come back soon.

  • The property was stylish with everything you would need and was spotlessly clean. The outdoor space added to the experience and had wonderful views. The windy roads up are interesting but you get used to them and the views are worth it. A great place to use as a base for walking and exploring the less touristy parts of the island. Lucien is a great host whose local knowledge helps you plan great days out.

    Joan2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic place and hosts!!! We spent two weeks with their house as a perfect base for exploring the island by car and foot. The house is beautifully situared on a slope with views to the sea. A quiet and peaceful setting in a rural area, yet close to Teror and Las Palmas. The house is nicely restored in an old style, yet with all the modern convieniences. The outdoor patio and terrace with plants and sitting groups added great value to the place. Lucien was a very attentive host, sharing his knowledge about the island and possibilities, wether it be driving routes, walking routes, museums or good restaurants. That brought us to places we wouldn’t have found on our own. Dear Nathalie and Lucien, we will for sure be back one day!

    Ellen2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house, very careful decoration, all great to spend several days relaxing in the countryside. Lucien and his wife very attentive and pleasant.

    Javier2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent! Very good hosts pending everything, the house is very beautiful does not lack any details. We will repeat! Thanks Lucien and Nathalie
