Apartment is in Gran Canaria near to Port Mogan. This is one of the most attractive places in the island. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and very spacious. There was a large balcony which was a real sun trap. There was also a large umbrella and shaded area which we did need. The barbecue was used by us a lot and we spent most evenings on the veranda.
We only ate out once but that was our choice. Paul took us to the restaurant and brought us back so we could have a drink.
We hired a car and found this very useful. However, Paul will take you wherever you want to go and there are some buses.
Paul and Paula are wonderful hosts. They are never intrusive but always willing to chat if you want and amazing in what they will provide. we went to the beach a lot and sun beds and shades are quite expensive. Paul provided us with these which we kept in the car. Towels are changed whenever you want, including beach towels and they will also do your personal washing. We have rented many holiday properties but this has excelled them all. I could go on but it is already quite booked up and we do want to go again.
We have been visiting the Canary Islands at least once every year for almost a decade. After some considering we decided to go to Gran Canaria and the little mountainvillage of Mogan.
This summer we were going to get married, so we decided to stay for a month on the island. We wanted somewhere to stay where it would be nice, calm and private. Somewhere far away from the masstourism.
We found this nice private place Valleysol, and decided to book the whole month there. We didn´t regreat it!
Paul came to meet us at the local petrolstation to help us find the way to the house.
After giving us something cold to drink, Paul gave us a mini tour of the area (lokal bakery and so on) and took us shopping.
We really got a warm welcome from Paul and Paula!
We later told them that we were getting married at the swedish church the first week of september. They immediately offered to help us with everything
around the wedding, from flowers to restaurants and great surroundings for taking wedding photos.
We really liked Paul and Paula. They are wonderful people with a great spirit!
They helped us making our vacation and weddingday perfect!
The apartment is lovely because it feels like a home and not like some cheap rental apartment to make a profit on.
The best thing about the place is the huge terass. We had long breakfasts on the terass every morning! There was also a little BBQ there and
it did a fantastic job! Many times we grilled chicken from the supermarket Mercadona that Paul tipped us about. It was so nice!
The terass looks even better in reality. Two big sunbeds with mattresses, umbrella and a table for eating. There were even a new hot tub!
One of the best days except our wedding day was the day we stayed at home and just enjoyed the sun and the pool.
I think that the pool will bring many people joy. Imagine to turn up the heat in the pool in the evening and just stargazing with something nice to drink!
Things we really liked with Valleysol:
Paul and Paula for just being the wonderful people they are!
Pauls Water service (you could buy 5 liters of water for 1 euro)
The possibility to get help with laundry when we were away from home for such a long time.
Pauls help with driving guests on our weddingday.
Paulas great guiding tips!
That you can borrow many things when you are there, like umbrellas for the beach.
And there has to be one possible improvement.. ;-)
The bed is good quality, but are a litte narrow and missing a topper. But it might just be us.. Swedes are used to wide fluffy beds.. :-D
But 4 weeks don´t last forever.. eventually we had to say godbye.
We really recommend Paul and Paulas wonderful place Valleysol.
Thanks for making our weddingday and vacation a memory for life!
See you again soon!

The apartment and hosts made our holiday. The risk of putting a perfect review is that everyone books this gem meaning we can't return when we want to! However this accommodation and especially our hosts Paul and Paula deserve the very highest rating.
The apartment is simple and beautiful. Very well thought out with all your needs catered for. The sun terrace is ideallic offering both privacy and stunning views. The area is quiet and tranquil. The newly installed jacuzzi was a lovely surprise and the icing on the cake. Sitting in a jacuzzi on a warm evening enjoying the views with a glass of something nice is the perfect way to unwind.
We would recommend hiring a car and you do need to be able to cope with slopes and steps to enjoy this location. Paul and Paula have great local knowledge and happily introduce their guest to local restaurants and facilities. We were so taken with the first local restaurant that we ate there three evenings in a row!
Mogan beach is ok and the town is pretty with a good range of shops and restaurants to enjoy. Fridays market is well worth a visit but get there early if you need to park.
In summary, if you are looking for a quiet getaway where you can enjoy the warmth of the sun, unwind and recharge your batteries this is the perfect place.
We had a wonderful week in this nice and cozy apartment. Just outside the buzy tourist places, surrounded by the mountains. Paul and Paula were very helpful and Paul showed us the way the first days. This service is an absolute plus. The apartment is nog too big, but the roofterrace is absolutly wonderful. As we say in Dutch: het was echt geweldig en een absolute aanrader wanneer je een ontspannen vakantie wil hebben buiten de bekende toeristen gebieden, en wilt genieten van de mooie natuur die Gran Canaria ook te bieden heeft.
It's hard to put into words what I can say that gives this luxury penthouse apartment and there dedicated owners, the true recognition that it so honourably deserves. From start to finish Paul and Paula can not do enough to make your stay exactly how you want it too be. So much so we have already booked our return visit in October. The apartment is beautifully decorated and the attention to detail is outstanding. From it's comfy home furnishings inside to the spacious outdoor roof terrace with breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside. It really was stunning on all accounts and I can't honestly recommend it highly enough. Get your stay booked you won't be disappointed !!!!
This is an excellent well maintained and equipped apartment that the owners Paula and Paul have gone that bit extra to make it a special place to be. The roof terrace is an amazing space to relax and eat in, equipped with large sun umbrellas should you need some shade. We could tell the time each morning as to when the sun popped its head over the mountain!
The fresh food left in the apartment for our arrival was delicious and most welcoming. Paul and Paula couldn't have been better hosts as they were there if we needed them, but also respected our need for rest and relaxation.
My wife and I will most certainly be staying at Valleysol again in the not too distant future and would highly recommend this apartment and its lovely owners.
