El Rincón del Nublo is a house located on a beautiful plot of land offering panoramic views over the volcanic rock formations known as Roque Nublo and Roque Bentayga, two of the most popular attractions on the island. The house is only a few minutes away from "Cruz de Tejeda", right in the centre of the island, which makes it the perfect spot on the island for a dream holiday.
This house is located in a rural area in one of the most outstanding municipalities of the island, the municipality of Tejeda, which is situated in the middle of the island of Gran Canaria, in the highest region.
The summits in the municipality rise above the great depression of Tejeda, which emerged from an immense cauldron, carved by water and flooded by volcanoes. The monolithic basaltic rocks, geological symbols of the island, are also a symbol of this municipality, making Tejeda a must visit for those who wish to discover the rich archaeological heritage of the island, which is also why it has become an attractive tourist site for visitors in general. The spectacular landscape was baptised by Unamuno as "The Petrified Storm".
Here we can find archaeological remains such as burial caves, engravings, paintings and houses. The Roque Bentayga is an example of this as well; it is a natural element of great singularity that used to be a sacred place for the aboriginal inhabitants of the island. There, they made offerings and worshipped the gods. The Roque Nublo, surrounded by vegetation which mainly consists of a young Canary Island pine forest that coexists with Retama broom bushes, the Canary Island flatpod and sage, very typical of the summits of the Canary Islands, has become the most emblematic symbol of Gran Canaria and a pilgrimage destination in the Canary Islands.
"El Rincón del Nublo", located in this wonderful place, is a very attractive accommodation that suits the needs of nature-loving travellers. The house is 108 years old, although it was extensively renovated only eight years ago. It has a capacity for five people in an area of 125 m2. A perfect place to rest and relax.
It has two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a dining room with an adjacent kitchen. In a small room there is a washing machine and cleaning utensils. It also has a large living room, with a huge front window and comfortable seats, which will allow you to enjoy a fantastic panoramic view of both the Roque Nublo and the Roque Bentayga. In addition, the house has a large panoramic terrace and garden areas.
The access to the house, which leads to a royal road, is only a few minutes away from the parking area and will take you beyond the small houses of the local residents. From this incredible house, in the centre of the island, you can enjoy some wonderful hiking trails.
Also, one of the highly recommended visits is La Cruz de Tejeda (a ten-minute drive from the house), which offers one of the most relaxing views on the island. A large stone cross rises over the entrance to the National Parador, just a few metres away from numerous stalls selling typical local products that delight visitors. Right there, visitors can also make a stop at one of the restaurants with outdoor service located in the area.
In short, Tejeda is one of the major tourist destinations in the Canary Islands. It is not by chance that Tejeda was named one of the most beautiful villages in Spain (2015), and in the world (2016), the first and only town in the Canary Islands with such recognitions. An idyllic place, both for tourists who wish to immerse themselves in the history and culture of the Canarian people, and for those who wish to enjoy the many hiking trails that this area offer within the depths of its beautiful landscape.
