About mark richard hampson

I am English and have lived on Gran Canaria for the past 15 years. I am fluent in English, Spanish and German and work in Las Palmas as a professional musician in the Gran Canaria philharmonic orchestra. I can easily organise concert and opera tickets for guests adding a cultural element to their time on the island. I am also a keen sportsman and have a wide knowledge of the various activities available to guests during their time in El Palmar. Gran Canaria is the perfect place for activities such as hiking, cycling, horse riding, climbing and diving, and El Palmar is the perfect base both to relax and experience all the island has to offer.

Why mark richard hampson chose Gran Canaria

I bought this property principally for its location. I love the traditional nature of the house and the beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. The house is also unique being within a village, near to all it has to offer, whilst feeling secluded and peaceful. Teror, the nearest town, is a thriving and emblematic centre for Gran Canaria with a flourishing Sunday morning market. The fiestas in September are also something not to be missed with pilgrims coming form all over the island both to pay homage to the virgin Pino and to take part in the following parties.

What makes this cottage unique

I enjoy the calmness, the beauty and the proximity to Las Palmas this property has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

After one week here we felt very relaxed. We thank Mark, who stayed during our time somewhere in the capital, Las Palmas, but could always be reached easily for help via text message / SMS or cellphone. We recommend this place to everyone - feel at home - you are guaranteed "vacaciones excelentes"!

I work as a professional musician both in the local philharmonic orchestra and across Europe with other touring groups.

The resorts on the south of the island are 50 minutes drive away and the volcanic peaks of the island half an hour away with spectacular walking and views.

Quiet and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here very much. The house has been kept in keeping with the area on the outside but has been very well updated inside. The living area is very comfortable and the kitchen is very nice and includes built in built in oven and microwave combi. The master bedroom and en suite were also very modern and comfortable, ( there was only the two of us). The location was rural but not isolated which suited us with a small shop 30 seconds away and the nearest town just 2km.

Casa Agradable

  • 4 of 5

It's nice to find a Casa away from the main centres, and this house is an excellent base from which to explore inland Gran Canaria. The Casa is comfortable and generally well-equipped, and all the arrangements were handled with courtesy and efficiency. Thank you, Mark.
