Holiday Rental House
All my ancestors, fathers, grandfathers and great grandfathers have been born and lived their lives in cave houses. People from my generation on now live in conventional buildings. The cave houses have been the dwellings of the “Guanches”, the first settlers of the islands. Despite the Conquista by the Spanish and everything they brought to our islands, people are still living in caves, especially in the mountain areas of the isle. This is mainly thanks to the fact that these cave houses maintain a constant temperature throughout the year of 17 to 22 degrees Celsius, making them warm in the winter and cool in the summertime. The cave house has been renovated, painted and rearranged over the months of October and November 2014 and I hope and wish it will be to the liking of my guests. ...All my ancestors, fathers, grandfathers and great grandfathers have been born and lived their lives in cave houses.

For our visit to Gran Canaria we were keen to avoid the usual tourist beach resort hotels and apartments and get into the interior of Gran Canaria. The cave house is one of many in the village. The village itself is quiet and tucked away...More

About the neighbourhood
Justamente a escasos 100 metros de Villa Alta, encontraremos el museo Etnográfico de Barranco Hondo, el cual podrán visitar y poder conocer un poco más de la cultura e idiosincrasia de los canarios. También muy cerquita está la pequeña ermita de la Virgen de Fátima, escavada en la roca y en donde los lugareños celebran sus fiestas religiosas y eventos.
