About the property

cottage with garden, palm tree, near to the beach at the west coast, max.2adults

Only 2km from the beach, above the village of El Risco (Agaete territory), Casa La Pintora, "the painters house" offers its studio-like accommodation for 2 guests.

A queen-size bed (1,50x2,00m), CD stereo unit, WiFi, DSL Internet by cable and a little SatTV (Astra) are awaiting you. The convertible sofa can be used as an additional bed for a child.

The Canary Islands artist Ana Luisa Benítez restored the little cottage in traditional style for her painting excursions in the nature park.

A resting place below a palm tree and a nice enclosed garden a few steps upwards are places for dreaming and relaxing. The view to the surrounding Tamadaba mountains invites for hiking. A spectacular star filled sky glitters at new moon nights.

At low tide on calm days you will be surprised by a wide sandbank and a shallow beach down on the coast, 5 minutes by car and a little walk away. Even in summer an insider´s tip.

Only 150 meters above sea level und protected from the trade winds and clouds by the mountains of the biosphere reserve, El Risco provides one of the best microclimates of Gran Canaria.

Cafe-bar-restaurant and a traditional corner´s shop are a walk away down in the village. In the old town of Agaete and its fishing port, 15km away, you will find supermarket, shops, cash machine and more restaurants.

Why Jürgen Richter chose Gran Canaria

The microclimate of Gran Canaria is rather pronounced. The valley of El Risco on the west coast is protected by the mountains of the Tamadaba Natural Park from the trade winds in winter times and provides one of the best locations on the island.

Casa La Pintora is a offically registerd holiday home in the "Vivienda turistica" category.

What makes this house unique

Restoring this cottage the Canary Islands artist Ana Luisa Benítez adhered stylistically confident to the elements of traditional canarian architecture: Natural stone, old wooden beams, an inside cane covered roof.

The house seems to hide inside the magnificent environment and radiates warmth and harmony in its straightforwardness.

The enclosed garden, surrounded by palm trees, opens the view to the hiking destinations and hilltops of the Tamadaba Nature Park.

The breakfast place beyond our own palm tree looks as though painted in the landscape.

In the old corners shop you may supplement your daily needs. On sundays as well. In Galdar you could enjoy a city walk and visit the market hall (workdays till 13:00 h). My insider tip: The art museum Casa-Museo António Padrón with outstanding expressionistic paintings in an old townhouse close to the cathedral. (tuesday-sunday 10-18:00h). If you are interested in the life of the legendary early Canarians, the Guanches, you shouldn´t miss to enter the museum and cave paintings of Cueva Pintada in Galdar. The aborigines settled on the beachside, in the caves and on the magic hilltops above the valley of El Risco as well - 600 years ago.

Eine wunderschöne Finca im kanarischen Stil in paradiesischer Berglage.

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben Ruhe und Natur gesucht und sie mit der Unterkunft in der Casa la pintora perfekt vorgefunden. Schöne Sitz- und Liegeplätze im Garten ermöglichen einen ganztägigen Aufenthalt und auch Mahlzeiten im Freien. Schöne Wandertouren finden sich auch in unmittelbarer Nähe. Der Vermieter ist sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Wir konnten einen Urlaub genießen, der keinen Wunsch offen ließ.

Paradiesisch einsam gelegen

  • 5 of 5

Wunderbare kleine Unterkunft, höhlenartig eingemauert und abseits des des Dorfes gelegen, kann man hier wirklich zur Ruhe kommen. Das Haus ist sauber und gepflegt.

Selten so gut geurlaubt!

  • 5 of 5

Herr Richter ist ein freundlicher und gut informierender Kontakt gewesen mit überaus zuvorkommenden Ansprechpartnern vor Ort.

Das Geschenk was einem widerfährt, nach langer, kurviger Anreise mit Blick auf die schroffe Schöheit der Küste, ist überwältigend.

Dieser Ausblick (Aufblick) ! - grüne Berge mit bewaldeten Zipfeln, die umstehenden Palmen und blühenden Pflanzen, die rund um das Häußchen kontrolliert wild wachsen, sowie Geräusche, die man höchstens aus der Knauber-Zooabteilung kennt in Kombination mit einer frisch gebrühten Tasse Kaffee in der Hand, die Sonne dabei beobachten wie sie die Berghänge herunter zieht, ist kaum geringer zu Bewerten als ein perfekter Start in den Tag und in die Zeit des "Runterkommens".

Umliegende kleine Wasserfälle gilt es auf Wanderungen zu finden - Eine Oase am Ende der Steppe zum Fuße der Berge.

Die Berge lassen sich problemlos mit festen Schuhwerk bis ca. 50-70 Meter besteigen, um weitere Wasserfälle zu entdecken-es lohnt sich!

Frisches Obst und Gemüse und Meeresgetier findet man auf den Märkten.

Die anfangs erwähnte Küste besitzt einen entsprechenden Strand, wo man es jedoch unterlassen sollte zu schwimmen, es sei denn, man befindet sich im Körper einer handteller großen Krabbe, die dort zahlreich und farbenreich vorkommt.

Abgerundet wird dieser Tag bei Sonnenuntergang mit einem Essen in dem privaten Garten. Kunstrasen zwar, aber was solls? Störte überhaupt nicht! Vom Gefühl her, wie Photoshop! und keine Insekten an den Beinen ( für Frauen praktisch).

So perfekt war dieser Urlaub, dass ich sogar bereit bin den Kunstrasen zu verteidigen.

Einer der besten Urlaube ever.

Am Liebsten nicht zu empfehlen- soll ein Geheimnis bleiben. :)

Zu erwähnen ist noch, dass sowohl schnelle W-Lan Verbindung und deutsches TV vorhanden ist. Hammer!!!!

Maison avec du charme situé dans un cadre grandiose. Par contre le rapport qualité/prix n'est pas à la hauteur au regard des deux autres réservation précédentes.

L'accueil a été sympa mais basique. Je recommande pour l'emplacement.

Car: recommended

Right on the doorstep of Casa La Pintora there are starting soft trips, easy or challenging hikes.

The Kompass hiking map Gran Canaria is a good companion, for hiking tours combined with a rented car as well, nearby or in the central part of the island.

In the Bar Perdomo during the week you will enjoy among locals the goat cheese and other Canary Islands specialities. Fresh bread you buy there every morning. In the old corners shop you may supplement your daily needs. On sundays as well.

Numerous restaurants you will find on the harbor promenade of Puerto de las Nieves, 15 km away nearby Agaete, where you could take a ferry to the neighboring island of Tenerife. In Agaete, right hand on the road down to the harbor, you will find the nearest, well-assorted supermarket (Spar).

Lidl and the recommendable Mercadona are located beside the highway, taking the first exit after Agaete.

A little bit further away, in Galdar, you could enjoy a city walk and visit the market hall (workdays till 13:00 h). My insider tip: The art museum Casa-Museo Antonio Padron with outstanding expressionistic paintings in an old townhouse close to the cathedral.

(tuesday-sunday 10-18:00h).

If you are interested in the life of the legendary early Canarians, the Guanches, you shouldn´t miss to enter the museum and cave paintings of Cueva Pintada in Galdar.

The aborigines settled on the beachside, in the caves and on the magic hilltops above the valley of El Risco as well - 600 years ago.
