quaint and lovely balcony

  • 4 of 5

spent a week in November at El Sosiego, and was very happy with the villa. The living room is small but very tastefully decorated with very olde worlde furniture. the owners are very helpful and if you have any problems i am sure they will resolve. looking forward to booking again next year. The Canarian balcony was our breakfast, lunch and evening meal place to sit and relax with its beautiful views.

Ciekawe wakacje w kanaryjskiej atmosferze

  • 5 of 5

El Sosiego jest idealnym miejscem dla osób, które chcą spędzić wakacje w prawdziwie kanaryjskiej atmosferze, z dala od tłumu turystów. Ilka jest osobą bardzo pomocną i jednocześnie dyskretną. Zarówno dom, jak i jego otoczenie jest pięknie utrzymane i bardzo czyste. Willa jest wyjątkowa, zbudowana w starym stylu, ale posiada wszystkie nowoczesne udogodnienia (uwaga na niskie drzwi - ale to jest element stylu). Centralne położenie na wyspie jest idealną bazą wypadową do wycieczek - w kilkanaście minut możesz dojechać na plażę, do Las Palmas lub wyruszyć w głąb wyspy. W Santa Brygidzie jest kilka klimatycznych knajpek, szczególne polecam Picoteo Cafe El Despacho.

Jednym zdaniem, wspaniałe miejsce za rozsądne pieniądze. Polecamy wszystkim, którzy chcą odpocząć z dala od turystycznej machiny.

What can I say! One of the best holidays we have ever had! 'El Sosiego' is a lovely charming property with lots of character loving built by the owners Dirk & Ilka Emmerich. The property is very well maintained & extremely well equiped. We had lots of help from Ilka before & during the holiday & we couldn't be more grateful. Dirk was very helpful too giving us tips on where to visit on the Island & they made us feel very welcome & so did Borca their lovely dog.

We hired a motorbike for the week & toured nearly all the Island, the mountain roads were absolutely breathtaking, you must visit the mountains & see the true Gran Canaria. We were very lucky that we had very hot weather eventhough it was mid January. This was a truly idylic place to stay & very relaxing.

We really enjoyed having a meal with Dirk & Ilka & we were so impressed when they invited us into their lovley charming home, it's a real credit to them. We were invited into their charming Bodega & had a lovely time with plenty of wine. Thanks to them both for making this holiday so special. We will definately be back & wholly recommend 'El Sosiego' to people.

Das besondere Ferienhaus

  • 5 of 5

"Nicht nur die Unterkunft war begeisternd, sondern auch die Betreuung durch die Vermieter. Dieser Urlaub wird uns durch die Besonderheiten, die uns das Ferienhaus geboten hat, nachhaltig in Erinnerung bleiben.

Besonders als Ausgangsort für Fahrten/Wanderungen in die Berge ist die Lage des Quartiers sehr geeignet.

Wohnen zum Genießen!

Für die nächste Reise nach Gran Canaria kennen wir schon unsere Unterkunft.

Aleida & Jens"
