La Casa de Chira is an appealing property next to the Nature Reserve of Pilancones. Abutting the hillside, it has views from the garden and pool towards the Roque Nublo and, from here, a wander along a rural lane takes you to the Chira´s reservoir, where the inviting waters of the lake spread throughout the undulating hills. Perfect for those seeking a peaceful rural retreat, it is also a dream for mountain and hiking lovers as there are many breathtaking walks in the surrounding countryside.
The house is fully equipped to make easier a splendid holiday and the smart interior of the house provides spacious and attractive accommodation, with comfortable soft furnishings sitting atop the cool tiles of the sitting room. Throughout, numerous windows frame the picturesque mountain views, some of which open out onto pretty balconies.
What a very impressive and beautiful house tucked away in the mountains in the centre of Gran Canaria. You will find everything you need in the house, a home from home. There are lots of places to enjoy the surroundings with areas to sit both inside and outside of the house. The road from the Playas is very long and windy up into the mountains but it is well worth the drive away from the crowds. There are lots of places to walk and ramble, a great place to watch wildlife and birds of prey. An added bonus is the pool, we even used it in the winter, the weather was lovely, cold when the cloud was down but very hot when the sun shines. All in all a very nice stay and fully recommend this property.
"The villa was fantastic, clean, spacious and comfortable, with beautiful views. The instructions on how to get there were very helpful, and we were made to feel very welcome when we arrived. We had a very peaceful and relaxing holiday, away from it all!"
The landscape is spectacular, within 10 minutes drive beautiful walks are possible. The view from the house through the windows, or from the open roof, is magnificent. The house is big enough (probably for 6 persons) and tastefully decorated. As we like to read at evening, light is abundantly present. For kitchen work all equipment is present. Everything is very clean and hygienic. It is nice sitting outside (if the weather allows). However this outside sitting place is mostly in shadow, because of its location on a slope and the low sun in December. The swimming pool did not feel as warmed, because of a defect, even after a repair. Wifi is NOT present, because no cable comes in the neighbourhood. However at your disposal is a special module with USB-port that uses the 3G network (cfr. gsm)(only 200 Mbytes). Alas, the needed software of it did not function on my laptop (errors showed up), so I had to drive 12 km to the city to use a Wifi Zone in a bar. Perhaps the settings of my laptop were not ready for this module, but then not much instructions for such cases are left by the proprietor who says it installs automatically... In the kitchen we couldn't use the electric oven (much noise, no heath)(the micro wave oven was OK). In wintertime you need the heating system of the house; on the floor no problem, but at groundlevel just 1 electric heater is not enough for comfort. There is not much warm water for bathing, if you come second it will be cold.
We had a storm one night; the external decoration and the not perfectly closing doors made a lot of noise!
The house is really nice. It is located within the the valley of Presa de Chira in the central part of Gran Canaria with great view on the sourrounding mountains, far away enough from any "mass tourism". Car is essentially and it will take 1 hour over small streets with many curves and ~ 900 mtrs per height to the beach of Maspalomas but the trip will go through a very impressive countryside . The house itself is well equipped with all what you will need and the people who let the house and make the service are very friendly. In conclusion: We fully recommend this house for any people which want to make true holidays abroad from the big hotel cities at the South coast.
Een prachtige woning met alle nodige voorzieningen. Op voorhand was geen vraag teveel voor de eigenares en ook bij aankomst hadden we een supervriendelijke ontvangst. We hadden een heel duidelijke wegomschrijving gekregen en vonden het huis dus zonder probleem.
Twee minpuntjes voor ons:
- De ligging is prachtig, maar als je zoals wij voor een zonvakantie gaat is de ligging niet goed (of toch niet in het voorjaar). We wisten dit gelukkig wel en namen de prachtige rit door de bergen er elke dag bij. In het dorpje is echt niets. De minimercado hebben wij nooit open geweten.
-Het huis wordt verhuurd voor 6/7 personen, maar er is niet voldoende warm water om al deze mensen te laten douchen.
A short walk down the road from the house takes you to our small village of Cercados de Araña, with its basic amenities, whilst the waters of the Chira reservoir can also be reached on foot. For further amenities, the attractive hillside town of San Bartolomé de Tirajana with its glistening streets of whitewashed houses is 15kms away and a pleasing range of local restaurants can be reached at the same distance, whilst the coast is 1h15min-drive with the best beaches of the island.
Other Activities: Archeological sites, birdwatching and gorgeous stars at night.
