The ‘stepped back' nature of the project, ensures the maximum exposure to natural sunlight, and the dimensions of the verandas, which make ‘living outdoors' a reality. The direction the buildings face allows most of the sunlight to go directly into the apartments.

Thousands of years ago, volcanic activity formed a contrasting landscape. Tall mountains, deep valleys, serene lakes, crystalline waterfalls (email hidden) landscape stretching far and wide, from where every colour under the sun burst forth.

"was a pleasure to come back to, after long days out exploring or lying on the beach.Far better accommodation, in my opinion, than any hotel. All restaurants apart from the good one just outside the complex r easy drive awayThe apartment complex is so new that there were only a few occupants and we had the pool to ourselves all week. Parking is free and easy inside the secure residence. We ate most nights at the excellent restaurant by the village square in Canico . The supermarket (Sa) is on the way and open late, so we picked up groceries on the way.
AND finally, I have to say how helpful Sarah (the owner) was with information and assistance during the booking (we booked on a Friday night - arriving the next day, after been let down by a travel agent) we will definitely stay in her apartment again when we return"
