Charming Rural Hotel in Vega de San Mateo, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Canary Islands, Spain

Main Entrance - click for larger image

This noble house, the origin of which goes back to 1800, is situated 3 kilometres away from La Vega de San Mateo heading towards Tejeda, in the hamlet Caserio de La Lechuza.

In Las Calas all the structural elements have been chosen in harmony with the architectural tradition of the area.  The stone and the wood distil the rustic essence of the classical and the timeless, with ethnic brushstrokes of far-away cultures such as the Arab culture, present in the bas-reliefs and latticework of doors and windows and the rotundity of African art in the numerous sculptures that punctuate the lounges. 

The niches and masonry work furniture adapt themselves to the walls with great naturalness because of their rustic appearance, like the toasted yellow tone, the same as that which covered the original building more than two centures ago.

In Las Calas the peace of the vicinity entraps the traveller when he or she crosses the entrance to the hotel.  The house is an explosion of life and colour with exuberant vegetation, and in its 2,000 squre metres, trees of different species alternate (plum trees, pear trees, orange trees, almond trees, firetrees and Canary Island viburnums, cypress trees, palm trees, tree bindweed...), with plants that flower during the different seasons of the year (arum lilies, lavender, hydrangeas, dahlias, camellias, rosemary, lilium..).  The estate is bounded by small areas of fruit trees and kitchen gardens.

A place where it is easy to escape from the world for a few days, to succumb to the simple pleasures of life, to enjoy moments of silence, to diminish the rhythm of everyday life, returning to the equilibrium that nature gives us and of which we are a part.
