Las Palmas, Gran Canaria - A Place in the Sun

2020 / Las Palmas Gran Canaria Jean Johansson on 17 September 2020

Las Palmas Gran Canaria Jean Johansson

Ravin and Priti from Surrey want to sell up in the UK and find a new permanent home for themselves and their extended family in Gran Canaria. They’ve visited neighbouring Canary Islands such as Tenerife and Lanzarote before but never Gran Canaria and after extensive research decided it’s the place they want to be. They have £180,000 for the big move and Jean Johannson has lined up 5 fantastic properties, could any of them be Ravin and Pritti’s new home?

Las Palmas

Why buy here?

Just over a 4 hour flight from the UK brings you to Gran Canaria. It is the third largest island in the Canaries, and is known as a “miniature continent” due to its diverse landscape of volcanic mountains, sweeping sand dunes and 60 kilmotres of golden beach. The island attracts over 4 million tourists each year, with the majority heading to the popular holiday resorts in the south. The north is home to the historic capital of Las Palmas. The weather is much sunnier in the south than the north as the mountains seem to hang onto the clouds. This does however make it much more lush and green, and it’s also much more popular with the Spanish. Las Palmas is Spains 9th largest city and has a good bus system and is also a large port popular with the cruise ships as a stop off point.
