About the property

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.

Wonderful house, amazing views, just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The house, the pool, the's really gorgeous. We very much enjoyed our stay in and around the house where you can find so many comfortable and lovely places. Our children loved to explore the house and its surroundings and spent hours in the pool. Beatrix made us feel very welcome and gave us great tips and recommendations. We have seen very nice places on the island when we were hiking in the mountains or at the seaside but we always enjoyed very much to return to this house!

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.

  • 5 of 5

"For a quiet, relaxing holiday this is the place to go! Casa El Moral is a beautiful farmhouse with lots of charming features and very spacious. Our favourite spot was the sunny terrace off the master bedroom with its fantastic views of the mountains. A trip to Roque Nublo is well worth it. Thank you to Beatriz for the warm welcome."

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
