About Michael Franklin

I live in England with my partner Maria and 3 children. We run our own business and holiday in Gran Canaria to take time out.

Michael Franklin purchased this villa in 2015

Why Michael Franklin chose Mogán

Having been to Gran Canaria on numerous occasions a number of factors stand out:

- great all year round weather

- beaches to the south of the island, mountain scenery, and city facilities in Las Palmas - there's something for everyone

- day-to-day life runs at a slower pace than back in England

- 4 hour flight time - important if you have young children!

What makes this villa unique

The villa is a 12 minute drive off the main GC-1/Arguineguin. You have easy access to all the main shops and tourist areas but without the hustle & bustle of a tourist quarter. The view when you wake up and the sun rises over the mountains is out of this world.

The villa was recently built in 2007 and therefore provides modern accommodation. It comes loaded with all modern facilities such as Wifi, Air-conditioning, dishwasher etc. Also, there is a games room with a pool table, table tennis and gym equipment to keep you amused when not in the sun.

The villa has a new heated swimming pool that helps refresh you during those sunny days or under a star lit night.

What an excellent villa

  • 5 of 5

Villa Fortuna is an excellent base from which to explore Gran Canaria.

In a quiet village in the mountains but only a short distance from the (almost) circumnavigation motorway of the island.

It has all the facilities and more to make a holiday one to remember

Highly recommended

Wonderful villa with heated pool

  • 5 of 5

We stayed one week in mid January. In this time of the year you can expect sun on the private terrace from 10 to 4. The villa is large and clean with all the things you need for a comfortable stay. The heated pool is a treat in January. El Horno is really a sleepy local town but an easy 12 min drive from the coast.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are pleased you enjoyed staying at our villa and made good use of the heated pool. The terrace besides the pool receives sun throughout the day. And as you mention the villa is in easy reach of the main coastal resorts. We hope to see you again at Villa Fortuna.

A week in Villa Fortuna

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of 6 adults who have just had a lovely stay in Villa Fortuna. The villa was very clean, well equipped and had great views. We relaxed in the sun by the swimming pool and the table tennis table, the pool table and the barbecue were put to good use. We used the local shop (less than 10 minutes walk) which was well stocked and visited Bar Miguel (15 minute walk). We had hired a car so visited beaches and supermarkets on the coast which meant a 10 kilometre drive to the GC1 and on to where we were going - we particularly liked Puerto de Mogan and Amadores. Our favourite restaurant at Amadores was Portofino II where we had delicious food served by friendly waiters. We went on pedaloes, had fun at the Ocean Fun Park and had a couple of games of crazy golf. We had lovely warm weather for our stay in November and are very sad to be home.

Everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

What a great house. It's on 4 floors! Games room downstairs includes a really high quality pool table.

The pool outside was superb.

The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. The lounge and two rooms had air con (the games room could do with air con too).

20mins drive through some country roads to the main strip. We didn't mind as 5min drive/20min drive, what's the difference? You still have to drive.

Amazing views. One decent shop and couple very good restaurants in walking distance.

We went out most nights and me (dad) and kids played in games room until about 2am. Great fun.

I can't recommend it enough.

Our family really enjoyed staying in this Villa, very clean, spacious with good facilities.

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay here, it felt very homely. We spent lots of time in the pool and enjoying the pool table and gym equipment.

The area felt very relaxing; away from the hustle of the other tourists, yet the drives didn't feel too long.

We never tired of the views from the villa during our two weeks; the back drop looks very dramatic.

The air con in the front room, main bedroom and one of the other three were much needed. I think an improvement would be to have air con in all bedrooms as in the end our three teenagers ended up sleeping in one room to have a good nights sleep!

Overall a good value, beautiful villa which we felt very comfortable in!

Ideal villa as a base for relaxation and for touring the island

  • 5 of 5

The villa is bang up to date. Everything works perfectly and logically. The leisure equipment is very generous and adds a great deal to the pleasure of staying. El Horno is purely a dormitory village, but with characterful neighbours and their pets whose lives go on all around. I think Villa Fortuna is the only rental house nearby.

Special interest holidays:

The villa is located on the "Soria" cycle route. Literally hundreds of cyclists tour this route.


The nearest beach to the villa is in Arguineguin.

Amadores Beach – 18 minutes drive from the villa - one of the nicest beaches on Gran Canaria

The Amadores Beach Club is an area to the right of Amadores Beach, drinks can be ordered and served to you whilst you relax. There is a premium for this, but well worth it if you insist upon a little luxury and away from the possible crowds?

Amadores Beach Club Restaurant - the food here is fresh and simply wonderful. Looking for that romantic place to go then this has to be on your list.

Puerto Rico – around 15 minutes drive from the villa
