About the neighbourhood
Everyone says the house has a really great position, not only for the view from the roof terrace of the beach and down the coast. From the entrance to the house you walk about 80 meters down to the little village square, cross the road on the crossing, straight onto the pedestrian bridge over the little river and you are on the beach with restaurants behind it.

In the other direction after 150 meters you are in the marina/port area with more shops, bars,and restaurants. You are away from the bustle of the port and beach areas yet close to everything.

There are marked footpaths for walking up the valley and well marked trails up in the hills in the national park, mountain bike hire, and a dive school. Sea fishing is available as well.
Getting around
There are good bus services out of Mogan both inland and up and down the coast.

Mogan has it's own regular ferry service with boats going to Puerto Rico and on to Arguiniguin.

Car hire can either be taken at the airport or hired for short periods out of Mogan. We supply suggested day trips with routes to take you up into the interior with spectacular scenery and colourful rock formations contrasting against the white houses clinging to the steep hillsides, in some places with the backdrop of El Tiede volcano on Tenerife filling the distance.

Back up the coast near the resorts are theme and safari parks mingled with such sites as the world heritage site of the dunes at Maspalomas.
Car not needed
