      Indeed, Sue. Or even a get-away-from-it-all week. Such an idyllic setting.

    That looks really relaxing, well appointed too, ideal for a week or more on the Sunshine Island, yes please…

      In terms of location, Carol, it’s in one of our favourite valleys in the island. And the house is tastefully decorated and wonderfully equipped. It was a real wrench to leave.

    What a quaint little place!

    It looks very cozy & welcoming.

    That pool with a fab view is calling my name.

    Hope to visit Gran Canaria one day…soon 😉

      Isn’t it just, Karla? We’re more of a fan of a rock pool than a swimming pool usually, but few pools of either description boast such views. And yes it was so welcoming, it was difficult for us to free ourselves from its embrace.

    It looks so beautiful and relaxing there! Those hills in the back look tempting to hike too. : )

      It is. You’re right about the hiking. This is very much trekking country. Although it’s not the right season at the moment. We’re on orange alert with the temperature at the moment. Best to wait until it cools down a little. The hiking season really kicks in during the month of October over on Gran Canaria.

    Despite having lived in Europe for 30 years I have never been to Tenerife. I always associated it with tacky all inclusive tours or hen parties, but this looks really idyllic. Maybe I have to go one day. Where would you recommend that is away from the crowds?

      Thanks, Tammy. We like Tenerife. But they’re our neighbours and rivals, so we’re not going to big them up too much. If you want to really get away from it all there, though, how about climbing Spain’s tallest mountain, Mount Teide? However, you need a permit before you can reach the summit. Over on Gran Canaria, walking from La Goleta to our iconic Roque Nublo (Clouded Rock) is a gentle, two-hour hike there and back. No permit required.

      It was, Suzy. It still is. And no doubt it will continue to be when we get back there.
