“Wonderful base for enjoying the simple pleasures and stunning views”

Stayed at La Condesa for over a week to spend my hard-earned brownie points on my first solo break without the family for a decade. I wanted somewhere to read, relax and potter but - being in the strange position of partner and kids being at home - I wanted somewhere quiet but also safe (ie not too isolated) with good amenities and transport links nearby. This apartment was perfect and really good value for money.
The owners have thought of everything in this apartment. I'd bought a duff adaptor plug - there was a spare in the drawer. I hadn't packed a hat - there was a wide-brimmed sunhat in a cupboard. I looked out from the balcony at the stunning view convinced I could see dolphins and there was a pair of binoculars to confirm that yes, the sea was teeming with them.
The balcony view - which other reviews have mentioned - is amazing. Sunsets, dawns and people-watching with the Atlantic rolling up just across the (very quiet) road. You can nip over and go rockpooling before breakfast or watch a thunderstorm moving across the sea from the island in the distance. I left the balcony door open every night and fell asleep to the sound of the sea.
Valle Gran Rey is a quiet place to stay. Downstairs there's a restaurant which wasn't at all noisey and a few minutes walk away are plenty of small supermarkets, a bank, cafes and a post office. The Port area (with its quirky little shops and bars) is a 5 minute seafront stroll in one direction and La Calera (the busiest area of VGR) is about 10 to 15 minutes seafront walk in the other direction past La Puntilla (which also has a small selection of restaurants and shops) so you can eat out without getting bored and have a little walk back after dinner before bed.
Also just around the corner is a bus stop. I had asked the owners - who live up in the hills so close enough to help if needed but not at all intrusive - before arriving about hiring a car and was kindly advised that there are options to hire in VGR but that there was also a good bus service. The buses were a revelation. It cost only 5 euros to take a trip to the island's port town of San Sebastian which was 1hr 45 mins away and I really relaxed and enjoyed the views. There was a good information pack in the apartment with timetables for buses, ferries and walking routes so another day I easily took the bus again and did a few hours walking in the hills which was wonderful.
La Condesa is not for you if you need a big flatscreen TV, a hi-tech sound system, underfloor heating in a wet room, etc. when you're on holiday. It is a clean and comfortable home from home. The owners have provided everything that matters if your idea of a holiday is about the simple, good pleasures in life. To relax and doze over a book in the sun on the balcony after lunch, to marvel at the beauty of the island, potter about on beaches, have somewhere to wash your sandy bikini and cook or go out to a bar in the evening. I will definitely be back but with my other half this time.

Wonderfully located, comfortable and spacious apartment.
Best experience from the balcony of the apartment...watching the setting sun, rising moon, the shining stars and the twinkling lights of the island of El Heiro in the distance.
It really doesnt get any better than that!

Thanks for visiting Jane and Nino, sorry that we only have satelite tv, programmes are mainly in German and English. The wifi in the whole block is being renewed by Telefonica and I hope will soon be functioning again.
I hope this didn't spoil your holiday and hope to see you back again soon.
