About Michael Franklin

I live in England with my partner Maria and 3 children. We run our own business and holiday in Gran Canaria to take time out.

Michael Franklin purchased this villa in 2015

Why Michael Franklin chose Gran Canaria

Having been to Gran Canaria on numerous occasions a number of factors stand out:

- great all year round weather

- beaches to the south of the island, mountain scenery, and city facilities in Las Palmas - there's something for everyone

- day-to-day life runs at a slower pace than back in England

- 4 hour flight time - important if you have young children!

What makes this villa unique

The villa is a 12 minute drive off the main GC-1/Arguineguin. You have easy access to all the main shops and tourist areas but without the hustle & bustle of a tourist quarter. The view when you wake up and the sun rises over the mountains is out of this world.

The villa was recently built in 2007 and therefore provides modern accommodation. It comes loaded with all modern facilities such as Wifi, Air-conditioning, dishwasher etc. Also, there is a games room with a pool table, table tennis and gym equipment to keep you amused when not in the sun.

The villa has a new heated swimming pool that helps refresh you during those sunny days or under a star lit night.

A superb villa, in a quiet village setting with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Villa Fortuna was fantastically clean, tidy and very well equipped. We felt that every eventuality/need had been thought through - even down to having a cool bag available and cutlery/crockery for small children. We would definitely recommend it and would consider returning. Thankyou

high standard villa in quiet location

  • 5 of 5

Really impressed with this spotlessly clean villa.

The location was perfect for us as it was quiet and away from the resorts but close enough to drive to them. We loved the mountain views from the terrace and the peaceful atmosphere of el horno.

The amenities within the villa were spot on. Everything we required was on hand . The kitchen well equipped. The bathroom had soft fluffy towels and the bedrooms were nicely furnished and provided a cool and comfortable nights sleep with ceiling fans and air conditioning.games room in the basement was great. We enjoyed playing pool but didn't have enough energy to use the gym equipment!

The pool area was very relaxing, the pool was ideal and 4 comfortable sun beds were available on the deck.

In the evenings we ate our meal on the main level terrace which had an awning to provide shade over a generous sized table.

We highly recommend this villa if you want somewhere quiet but are willing to drive about 20mins to the nearest decent beach - which we believe is amadores beach due to its beautiful crushed shell sand and calm waters.

Owner's Response: We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Villa Fortuna. Your description of the villa location is spot-on - we too find the scenic views lovely. We are lucky to have a great local cleaner - Sandra - who takes pride in cleaning the villa. We are glad you played a game or two of pool - the gym equipment can wait for next time! Hope to see you back again at Villa Fortuna.

Outstanding Villa - perfect for dream holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our July stay at Villa Fortuna was everything that we had wanted it to be and more. If you are looking for an authentic taste of Gran Canaria, away from tourists, but an easy ten-minute drive to the coast and all amenities, Villa Fortuna is the place.

Our family of six spent most of our time at the beautiful villa relaxing, sun bathing, and swimming. The back drop (majestic cliffs) is the perfect setting for a restful holiday. We enjoyed walking to Miguel's bar (in the village) every day to enjoy some Canarian hospitality and food. We also took advantage of the local store, which had a wide variety of merchandise at good prices.

The villa was clearly built to a high quality and furnished equally as well. The quality of the towels, the tile work, the barbeque equipment, the shower, the furniture, and so many other details all display an eye for class and detail that makes the stay here truly a home from home.

All of our contacts with Michael (and Santiago, the local "caretaker" and neighbor) were first class, highly efficient, polite, and positive. Michael answered all questions with immediacy and nothing seemed too much trouble. Likewise with Santiago.

We didn't travel around the island much (as we wanted to mainly relax at the villa). However, all the main attractions are in easy reach. We rented a well-priced car from Autopluscar.com (highly recommended). We visited the Aqualand water park (print tickets ahead of time for a better price) - about 25 minutes drive, and the big mall at GC-1 junction 28 (about half an hour). As mentioned, the nearest coastal town - Arguiniguen - is an easy 10-15 minutes drive from the villa. The airport is also very easy to find and is about 45 minutes.

We could not have asked for a better week's break in the Canaries or at Villa Fortuna. We hope to go back. We cannot recommend the villa highly enough.

Owner's Response: We are pleased that you had such a wonderful holiday at Villa Fortuna. You got to try out Miguel’s bar and visited the local shop. We are very lucky that a local Spanish couple – Santiago and his wife Sandra – maintain the villa to such a high standard for all our guests. As the villa is located in the south of the island (and 10 minutes or so from the GC-1) it is easy to get to all the main amenities and attractions. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

A great place to relax and unwind.

  • 5 of 5

We have just recently returned from a very relaxing and enjoyable week at Villa Fortuna. The villa is very easy to get to from the airport and takes approximately 30-40 minutes to get there.

Prior to our arrival we had excellent contact with Michael, the owner, who answered our questions in a very timely manner.

Located between mountains in a quiet village area the villa was a perfect place to fully relax and unwind after a few extremely busy months at work! Inside the villa is very well equipped, modern, well furnished and most importantly it was very clean. The week felt very much like a home from home (but with sunshine).

The pool and outside areas were also to the same standard where you could enjoy the sunshine or retreat to the shaded balcony if you prefer.

The villa is set over 3 floors (4 if you include the clothes washing area) so may not be ideal for those less mobile.

Various supermarkets and coastal towns are within a 15-30 minute drive. There is a local shop within walking distance of the villa but we didn't use it as we picked up groceries when we were out and about. Driving was very easy on good roads that you share with a lot of cyclists !

If you enjoy a location away from the hustle and bustle and don't mind a drive or taxi ride to the towns then I would whole heartedly recommended a stay at Villa Fortuna.

Fantastic holiday house for family

  • 5 of 5

We all (two familes) want to thank Michael and Maria from the fantastic stay we had in Villa Fortuna.

The house was well prepared, well kept and had everything you can imagine for a perfect holiday.

The children enjoyed the most the swimming pool and all kinds of games (snooker, ping-pong) in the house.

There was a very good surprise that good hiking paths (but a little bit challenging) in the mountains started right behind the house.

The only bad thing was that the holiday was a little too short.

Beautiful Villa 5 star!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place the most amazing mountain views ever. The Villa is so very neat and clean and had all you needed to have a great stay. The Villa is in the south of the island and near to all the main attractions but just set onto the mountains. Watching that sun come up in the morning I miss the view. I will be back to stay. thanks Simon & family😊
