Firgas Villa Rental Photos and Description
This recently built house enjoys a splendid position on the top of a smooth south east-facing hillside. Even from the stylish terraces and the poolside just below there are eye catching sea views across the valley to the distant glistening city of Las Palmas. The large terraces beside and above the pool offer sunbeds, outdoor dinning furniture and portable BBQ, perfect for outdoor meals. Inside, the light and well equipped accommodation is equally inviting for a comfy stay, with the provision of a modern plasma screen, home theatre, Satellite TV, internet access and piped music all around the house. The solar heated pool (6 x 3mt, 1.2mt deep), well lit at night, is a temptation to swimming any hour of the day.
Beaches and natural pools:: The North coast of Gran Canaria has plenty of small beaches and natural pools away from mass tourism and are both a surfers and families paradise just like the beach of El Puetillo which is only at 9km. If you prefer golden sand beaches, the beache of Las Canteras it´s only at 20km, most of it on motorways, and it´s a chance too to eat in any of the numerous restaurants from all over the world.
Surf:: From October till March once can enjoy the best and the most griping waves one can dream of, whereas during summer season there´s no better place for beginners, who can find at Gran Canaria safe conditions for taking up this exciting hobby, which can grow up into a lifelong passion.
An ace will enjoy the waves at El Fronton, an amateur will find 'Beach Breakes' Playa de Vagabundos or Playa de Bocabarranco exciting.
Furthermore, the average water temperatures in winter is 19-21C and 23-25C in summer.
Hiking, bycicle tourism and mountain biking:: Either on foot, on horse or by bike, the mountain areas near the house offer visitors a wide variety of extremely beautiful rural paths which will delight visitors along the paths and at each single village, ravine and valley.
Among the many ways for enjoying nature, trekking and biking are, no doubt, the best choice. There is a road and path net of several kilometres of length along Pre-Hispanic paths, forest ways, highways and bridle paths which stretch along a rough relief and across varied ecosystems which delight hikers due to the geological curiosities and archaeological traces. The routes for bicycle tourists will make their hearts strongly beat, since they will alternate between hard rises and vertiginous descents.
Crossing old paths which stretch from the coast to the mountains can be considered not only a sport, but also an incalculable source of culture, since visitors will track the ancient islanders.
