Cardenas shares its secret treasures

Published in Living in Gran Canaria, News

Patalavaca               Gran Canaria is such a well known family holiday island, you would think it would be very difficult to find a quiet secluded coastal town with good beaches and easy access to the bigger more well known resorts. Think again, Patalavaca fills all those requirements and more, and as well as making a great family home, it is a great investment for the future. Patalavaca nestles just between Puerto Rico and Arguineguin, and is a cosy place to live, with bags of charm and character. The sandy beach is unspoilt and a short drive or brisk walk away along the promenade, you will find the fishing harbour of Arguineguin. This is a world away from the nightclubs and loud music of the bigger neighbouring resorts, but if you want to go and sample them, you know you can always return to your own delightful back water to take things at a more relaxed pace. Golfers will find Patalavaca especially enticing as it is close to the modern Anfi Tauro golf resort, another haven of tranquility. This is what you get when you deal with a real estate company like Cardenas Real Estate that has grown up over 28 years in the area, based at three agencies in Arguineguin, Puerto Rico and Playa de Mogan. Local knowledge counts for a lot in Gran Canaria, and Cardenas know where to find the best properties and the right people to deal with to make the buying process quick and efficient. Patalavaca is just one of many hidden gems that Cardenas has among its current list of 491 properties, and they are changing all the time, so keep a regular check on their website and find your ideal home.
