puerto rico beach 2It’s all change this week in Gran Canaria as our ‘winter’ Scandinavian guests go home to enjoy their summer and the British arrive to escape theirs. 

Without the changeover, it’s hard to know that the season change in Gran Canaria; summer has already started and it gets warmer every week.

If you’re packing up, have one last beer for us. Skal! If you’re arriving, then welcome to sunny Gran Canaria.

The change means that it gets easier to find an English breakfast and a little harder to find Scandinavian favourites in Puerto Rico and Mogán. Also, the lizards up in the hills behind the resorts get a break as the Brits aren’t as keen on hiking up things in the sun as the Nordics.

Gran Canaria News

This winter in Gran Canaria made headlines as the coldest for a decade, but we hardly noticed; down here in the south it’s basically been sunshine all the way.

You may have seen the recent oil spill off the south of Gran Canaria in the news. We’re relieved to report that while some oil landed on remote west coast beaches it wasn’t enough to cause permanent damage. The beaches are now clean and the plan is to extract the remaining oil in the wreck as soon as possible.

Property

Property prices in Gran Canaria over the winter were stable and, overall, Gran Canaria property prices rose by 1% in 2014. Local banks are lending again and this is driving a certain amount of buy-to-let activity in south Gran Canaria.

There are plenty of bargains on the market and with the pound and other European currencies strong compared to the euro, it’s a good summer to look for a property.

Summer viewing trips

Our innovative summer viewing trips mean that you can come to Gran Canaria and see a wide range of properties in a short time. If you buy one, we’ll refund your accommodation costs.
