Villa with Pools in El Palmitos, Mogan, Gran Canaria
Villa Palmito is situated approximately 7km from the village of Mogan and 5km from the picturesque Puerto de Mogan, known locally as Little Venice due to the pretty rows of two-storey houses intersected with flower-filled walkways, bridges and waterways. The enchanting fishing village and harbour of Puerto Mogan is a working port supplying locally caught seafood to numerous local restaurants, who are able to offer seafood dishes of unrivalled freshness. Golfers will have easy access to the picturesque Par 3 and 18 hole courses at Anfi Tauro (approx 15 minutes by car) and El Salobre, a Championship standard course some 20 minutes away by car. Puerto Mogan and Mogan village have three good sized supermarkets and there is a regular bus service with a bus stop near the villa. Other local attractions include the Yellow Submarine, for a glimpse of Mogan's underwater life, Palmitos Park & Aquapark waterpark, a little further along the coast at Playa de Ingles.

About the Owner
Guestbook comments from the owner
"We had a very enjoyable time at Villa Palmito and would thoroughly recommend the villa. The Villa is in a lovely quiet location with spectacular views up the valley from the large terrace around the pool. The pool is a good size and was heated to a very pleasant temperature. Mogan is one of the prettiest resorts on the island with a great sandy beach for the kids, and not over-developed as other Canarian resorts tend to be. The villa was thoroughly cleaned and laundry changed midway through the week rather than the usual once a week clean and there was plenty of hot water for the baths and showers! We'd recommend the villa for family with kids - there's railings around the whole property, and the villa comes with cot and lots of kids plastic plates etc. Worth noting that the basement bedrooms (both en-suite) are accessed via an external staircase with their own front door.

A beautiful villa, set in the majestic mountains..
Highly recommend this property. Our family traveled from UK and Ireland, and had a really fun and restful week. A beautiful villa, comfortable and well looked after and with everything one could possibly need to relax and catch up on the gossip. Pool was warm and so delightful to have choice of poolside or barbecue area to eat out. The drive was a little steep for our older members (80+) though everything else was wonderful. Thoroughly enjoyed eating out locally and great taxi services locally also if you decide not to have a rental car, though easy to hire locally and straightforward roads etc. Particularly loved the buzzards flying overhead, dont see in Ireland!! Easy and really helpful instruction and support from owner and the local garden maintenance and house staff were really lovely- thank you all ....
Our second stay at this villa. Went with family instead of friends this time. Very different holiday, but a lovely time had by all. Villa was up to the same high standard as last year.
We have just returned from a wonderful week at Villa Palmito which I would thoroughly recommend,The villa has stunning views in a beautiful location.We found the barbecue area very useful with plenty of space and a shady area for when you need it.The pool was lovely with a good temperature and must admit we spent a lot of time in it.The kitchen was kitted out with everything you need even a dishwasher and the utility area was very handy with its washing machine etc Would definitely be returning
The villa had everything you could wish for. Perfect for families or a group of friends. Very spacious and set in beautiful surroundings. The harbour in Morgan is a short drive and a car would definitely be recommended to see this beautiful island.
Lovely heated pool and barbecue area
Planning to return next year
We went as two families with small children. The house was fantastic. The house is at the end of the motorway so easy to get to from the airport, the resort is lovely with a beach and small harbour. The house its self is a couple of miles out of town so lovely and quiet. There is loads of room inside and out and the kitchen is well equipped.
Nice place . Suited us just fine .
Well presented , clean and comfortable , with a very well equipped kitchen . Outside areas and the pool had lots of space .
Traffic noise coming up from the road was not an issue to us .
Puerto Mogan is a nice place with a great climate , but parking is a big hassle , except in the evenings . So to rent a place just a couple of minutes up the road makes a lot of sense .
The UK owner is easy to deal with and there appears to be plenty of local back-up if anything needs sorting during your stay .
Activity and Interests
The villa is situated 5 minutes by car from Playa Mogan and Puerto de Mogan. Playa Mogan is a gentle beach with golden sand rather than the typical Canarian volcanic variety with a good variety of shops, restaurants and bars. Puerto Mogan is both a working fishing port and a marina with boats of all shapes and sizes from around the world. The port area has a good buzz, excellent restaurants providing a good variety of cuisines as well as an annual jazz festival and other attractions.
Transfer from Las Palmas airport takes approximately 45-60 minutes by car.
A bus service also passes through the airport and on to Mogan port and village.
Travelling by taxi from the airport to the villa should cost no more than about 40 Euros.
The villa is situated approximately 5km from Puerto Mogan/Playa Mogan and 7km from the village (pueblo) of Mogan.
Mogan is noted for having sunshine for 12 months of the year and for being the Southerly part of a continent in miniature offering golden beaches, endless sand dunes, mountains, green ravines and pretty villages.
Gran Canaria is a Biospheric Reserve and also known for it's windsurfing, diving, golfing and big game fishing - as well as being a Winter training venue for professional cyclists.
