Overview

Vega de San Mateo Villa Rental Photos and Description

A self-catering rental away from it all

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.

Wonderfully peaceful rural retreat

  • 4 of 5
We booked Casa Moral as a last minute getaway for some much needed sun, rest and relaxation. We were very happy with our choice; the property has many wonderful outdoor areas to relax but the highlight for us was a magnificent rural view across some of the most wonderful scenery. The house itself is well equipped with two lounging areas and three double bedrooms, each with their own bathrooms. It is comfortably furnished and the kitchen has everything you could need. However, the outdoor areas, including the private pool, are the real selling point of the property. As mentioned in previous reviews, the drive down to the property really is quite tricky so we left the car at the top of the hill and walked the 5 mins up and down the hill with our baby. This can be a little inconvenient with shopping and definitely not something you could do with a pram, but we felt the natural location more than made up for the inconvenience. Beatriz went the extra mile for us, making sure we had all the baby kit we needed which was very kind and provided a food welcome pack as we arrived late. The downsides; it would have been great to have an information pack on the local area (recommended beaches, restaurants, local markets etc) so that we didn't need to keep bothering Beatriz. Also, the local village only has two little shops which are not open all the time and the restaurant mentioned in previous reviews didn't open once when we were there so you really do need a car. I would also suggest to those who have restricted mobility or those with toddling or crawling babies that this may not be best for you as there are lots of stairs and some without hand rails. But if you don't mind a little extra effort and crave stunning, uninterrupted views, genuine peace and quiet then Casa Moral is definitely worth a visit.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, Simone. This is really more than what I could have thought of when you told me you had written a review. Thank you!!
Definitely I have to start working seriously in that book for the house but not because you can bother me. You never do. For me it is a nice chance to chat a bit with the guests and see their needs and expectations for the house and the island as well, but it is truth that some questions pop up frequently so maybe, who knows, I can start with my point of view from the house and end up writting a Best Seller guide of Gran Canaria!
My best wishes to that young family. I hope to see you soon again :)

Lovely traditional house with wonderful views

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our week's stay and loved the house. The description and the reviews below are all accurate. The house is traditional with some lovely old wooden furniture, but modern with wifi, and a great setting for the pool. There are lots of different places to sit out and enjoy the views over the valley below, with traditional working of the agricultural terraced slopes, and it is very easy spend lazy hours around the house and pool. The area is good for exploring the mountainous central part of the island, which will appeal to those looking to avoid some of the more touristy parts of the south, but also less than half an hour to the motorway to get around the island more quickly or to some quieter beaches in the east and north, such as Melenara or El Puertillo.
Beatriz is a perfect host, and kindly provided a welcome pack of some nice food and wine for the first evening. She visited to see that everything was going well, and provided very helpful suggestions for days out.
The restaurant/snack bar is good value for eating in or takeaway, and the local shop is surprisingly well stocked for a small village. We would recommend a torch for descending the steep path in the evening. The supermarket and petrol station in Vega de San Mateo is about 10 minutes away, with a good Saturday/Sunday local market. We would certainly recommend the cave restaurant at Arternara, the highest village in Gran Canaria, particularly for its setting and spectacular views.

Fabulous Setting

  • 5 of 5
A lovely house in a lovely setting - recommended for those wanting a change from or to avoid touristy areas etc. This is a proper house, full of character and charm, well maintained and well equipped. Comfortable beds! One of the best we have stayed in.
The area was quiet, fascinating and the locals friendly - the local bar is also value for money. The steep winding access path was not a problem for us as we are age 50 (+ a bit) and Beatriz carried the cases in her car for us any way.
A good base for exploring the island so long as you don't mind driving. We had a good time - always busy. We drove over to Port Mogan (a long way) via Cruz de Tejeda, had a day in Las Palmas, visited Teror and had a day at Playa des Ingles. We needed longer than a week really. Our 14 year old kept busy in the pool when we were not out. Older children might need more to keep them happy - but there are lots of walks in the area. There was also plenty of information at the house.
Can also recommend Beatriz as a perfect host - she arrived within minutes of our call and although she did not bother us during our stay we felt comfortable she was on hand should we need any help or advice.

Owner's Response: Dear Steve,
Thank you so much for your words about the house and the beautiful description of your experience of the island from this spot. La Casa del Moral is for sure a different kind of holiday from the enormous variety offered in the South of the islad but good, I think, for those seeking a contact with the real Canarian lifestyle apart, of course, from the sun. Mario will be pleased to know that his bar and restaurant are already getting famous at the internet! it is great for us to have his meals near the house and also his parents´grocery store always open.. I liked your comment on the beds! THANK YOU! We love good cotton in the linen and towels but sometimes when we are ironing we are not sure if later people will note the difference.. Thank you too for your kind words about myself. It is a real compliment when it comes from my guests :)

Fanastic house in a great setting

  • 5 of 5
My family and I spent a week in this charming old spanish villa, high up in the mountains in a fantastic setting. All the rooms were very big and the house well equiped. My children loved the seperate chilldrens playhouse by the pool, would recommend this house to anyone who wanted to get away from all the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas.
Will definately be coming back soon.

Nice holiday with a family

  • 4 of 5
We stayed in this villa for a week in January, and we couldn't be more pleased about the whole holiday. Villa was well equipped, and we didn't have any problems staying there as 6 adults with a child 7 months old. Only problem was, that the house wasn't that easy to access with a car and the walking path was quite hard to walk as well, so you need to be carefull walking there specially during the evenings. And even though the villa wasn't that easy to access, we got help with our luggage from the owner of the villa.

So if you want to have a holiday away from the big cities, but still be able to go shopping there within 30-45minutes, our family can totally recommend this villa. And same goes with the beach side, you need to drive there for a while. Car is a necessity and at least we didn't have problems parking it a bit away from the house - no scratches :)
Also what you need to experience if you visit La Solana, is the local pub "La Solana". Good food and good service, even if you don't speak Spanish.

Overall: I could definately go there again.

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!

Other Activities: Contemplation of volcanic geography, visiting archaeological and ethnographic sites, hiking
