It’s so easy to think of Gran Canaria as just a beach resort, after all it has some of the most outstanding beaches in the world. It may be a relatively small island, but it has a big range for property investors and home buyers.

Maybe it’s time to let Cardenas estate agents open up other parts of the island to you, for business or pleasure. Telde is a popular inland area on the east coast and has the advantage of being near to Gando airport but still only 50 minutes from the busy southern resort of Puerto Rico. How about a large finca (farm) complete with an orange grove or maybe a 5 bedroom country house with pool.

If you don’t want to go that far north but want to be away from the livelier resort areas, how about Vecindario, where you find plenty of shopping facilities with excellent connections through the highway.Â

Choose from a four bedroom, two storey house in a new development or plump for a country house, updated with all mod cons and a pool but unmistakedly Canarian in design and with a view out over the mountains.

If you are looking for a business opportunity, maybe you can try one of the newer rising areas such as Patalavaca or look at the many shops, bars and commercial centres in the main tourist centres. Whatever your choice, Cardenas has the local knowledge to ensure you make an informed choice.
