The Finca Paraiso is located in a green oasis on a sunny hillside in the south of Gran Canaria. A small cottage in Canarian style was enlarged by a contemporary, minimalist extension. Inside, the Finca now has a modern appearance with a kitchen block of high grade fair-faced concrete, furniture classics of the 20th Century and a natural stone bathroom with a lighted outdoor shower. The living room can be fully opened and merges with a terrace that seems to float over the landscape. There are further terraces around the house so that everybody can find his or her favourite spot: be it in the sun or in the cool shade, with panoramic and mountain views.
Note: Besides the bedroom in annex there are two more bedrooms in the unrenovated part of the house, which can be rented additionally. The house can then accommodate a total of up to 6 people.
