Gran Canaria - A Place in the Sun

2020 / Gran Canaria Laura Hamilton on 15 October 2020

Gran Canaria Laura Hamilton

Laura Hamilton is in Gran Canaria with Sean and Ian, helping them find a holiday home on the east coast near their favourite town of Vecindario, which they love for its traditional, and laid-back atmosphere. They’re looking for a property, for their budget of £125,000, that’s a walk from shops, bars and restaurants with enough outside space for entertaining the friends they’ve already made on the island. Laura has come up with 5 fabulous options for them to see, but will any live up to their dreams?

Gran Canaria

What's the appeal?

Gran Canaria is the third largest island in the Canaries and can be reached from the UK with a 4 and a half hour flight. It’s best known resorts are Las Palmas and Maspolomas but we’ll be searching along the west coast between them, in and around the town of Vecindario; a traditional spot with a pretty public park and a fantastic food market which is always filled with locals. It’s a 45 minute walk to the coast from here, but the charming rocky coves and pebbled beaches are worth the effort. And with other quaint little towns to explore nearby, like Ingenio and Aguimes, it’s the perfect place to enjoy a more authentic life in the sun.
