Nestled in the heart of Patalavaca, and featuring beautiful views of the ocean and the quiet fishing town of Arguineguin, is Villa Himar, a beautiful white-washed property that accommodates up to twelve guests over three spacious storeys. The villa is luxuriously stylish throughout, putting Oliver in mind of a modern executive hotel, with gleaming tiled floors, white pillars, marble bathrooms and stunning decorative touches. The lounge area is large and inviting, showcasing incredible sea views and featuring plump sofas and cosy armchairs, a modern-style coffee table and a large flatscreen smart TV, creating a wonderful space for chilling out on a lazy morning or at the end of a busy day.

There’s a separate dining area that accommodates up to eight guests and offers a wonderfully intimate setting for indoor meals, and you’ll find additional seating for four guests in the villa’s country-style kitchen. This well-appointed room comes complete with ample storage and food-preparation space, as well as a range of high-end appliances, including a central island with ceramic hob and extractor, oven and microwave, fridge, coffee maker and a dishwasher. The kitchen overlooks Villa Himar’s pool and barbecue area, making for a bright and cheery space to cook together as a family.

On the same floor, you’ll find a good-sized double bedroom, elegantly decorated and featuring a sumptuous bed, wardrobe, and the first of the villa’s family bathrooms. Three more bedrooms can be found on the upper floor; a double and two stylish twins. The double bedroom features a large dressing room, a TV and an ensuite bathroom with shower facilities, as well as offering guests direct access to a furnished terrace with incredible sea views - it’s a great spot for enjoying a morning cuppa or watching the incredible sunsets that the area is famous for.

On the villa’s mezzanine level, there are two further double bedrooms, one offering direct access to the upper floor solarium space - great for relaxation and soaking up the sun. All the bedrooms are modern and spacious, providing guests with ample wardrobe space, fantastic views, and soft, comfortable beds for a relaxing and restful night’s sleep.  

The outdoor spaces here at Villa Himar are stunning and are undoubtedly where you’ll spend most of your time during your stay. There are outdoor chillout areas for lounging, complete with quality furnishings, as well as a covered outdoor kitchen and dining space with a built-in barbecue for preparing and enjoying delicious alfresco meals. Guests here can enjoy the villa’s large private pool, which can be covered for safety and is easily accessible via steps, making it easier for guests of all ages to get in and out of the water. Villa Himar is a delightful holiday accommodation well suited to larger families or friendship groups holidaying together, offering everything you’ll need to enjoy a memorable stay in this gorgeous island paradise.

About the surrounding area of Villa Himar
<1hr to Airport Tourist Towns & Villages
Loading map

Villar Himar is situated in Patalavaca, just north of the quiet fishing town of Arguineguin, and these two resorts have merged over the years to become one large destination area that is famous for glorious sunsets and beautiful beaches. The main beach here is Playa de Patalavaca, a long stretch of fine-grained sand that is divided into two by a rocky ledge. Visitors here can rent sunbeds and umbrellas, and the waters here are good for swimming, although it’s worth noting that there can be high waves at times. You’ll find a number of good restaurants and beach bars nearby, serving food to suit all budgets and tastes. Playa de Aquamarina is located slightly further north and is a beach more suited to families with children as it’s almost fully protected from the waves and features calm, shallow waters.    

If you decide to head into the Arguineguin, Oliver recommends heading to one of the town’s fabulous beaches, such as Playa Las Maranuelas, famous for its beautiful sunsets and calm, clear waters. There are plenty of bars and restaurants within easy walking distance from here, including the all-you-can-eat-style Restaurante El Marino, which serves fresh cooked-on-the-spot cuisine rather than buffet-style fare. Playa de Arguineguin is another beach well worth visiting and is one of the biggest attractions on the coast, especially as it is located close to the Arguineguin market, which is held here every Tuesday and is comprised of vendors and stalls that travels around the island on different days of the week. Here you can also enjoy spectacular sunsets, and on days of high visibility, it’s possible to see Mount Tiede in Tenerife. For families with young children, La Lajilla is the most popular beach in the town, thanks to its safe and sheltered location that keeps it protected from the waves and ocean currents and amenities such as showers, sunbeds and umbrellas.

Snorkelling excursions are very popular with visitors to the town, offering guests a three-hour experience that includes learning how to use the equipment and how to dive. Expert guides will lead you to the best spots, pointing out and identifying an array of local marine life - it’s an experience not to be missed. If you fancy seeing some of the local wildlife without getting your feet (too) wet, Oliver recommends a speed boat trip out to the open ocean, where you’ll be able to spot dolphins and whales in their natural environment. Most of these trips start from nearby Puerto Rico and include refreshments as well as a swim break for those who want to get out in the ocean.

Also known as the ‘miniature continent, Gran Canaria is renowned for its marked contrasts. On a single day, we can enjoy marvellous beaches surrounded by dunes and climb peaks covered in Canary Island pine forests, with their greenery standing out starkly against the dark volcanic earth.

Just like the other Canary Islands, it is blessed with an enviable climate, an eternal springtime that invites you to experience its rich natural and scenic diversity intensely, its lovely fishing and inland villages, its traditions, culture and history. And also the modernity of the tourist resorts and urban hubs, like Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. The lively, cosmopolitan city is home to one of the most precious gems the island has to offer, and that also surprises visitors.


Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Babies & Toddlers

With its spacious rooms and large outdoor spaces, Villa Himar is a great choice of accommodation for larger groups, and family-friendly amenities include twin rooms, TVs and the use of a highchair and cot upon request. There are a number of stairs within the villa, as well as upper-floor terraces, so very young children will need to be well-supervised to prevent accidents. The villa’s private pool will be a welcome sight for kids of all ages, and the water is easily accessed via steps, so there’s no worry about the kids struggling to get in and out of the pool. An electric cover provides an element of safety, but parents should be aware that the pool is unfenced, and the walkway around it is narrow in places.

You’ll find a number of beautiful, family-friendly beaches right on your doorstep, and the town of Arguineguin, in particular, is perfectly suited for those wanting to enjoy a relaxing and peaceful holiday. There are lots of great beaches in the area, including Playa la Carrera, which is a smaller and less popular beach than Arguineguin’s main beach and is ideal for families looking for somewhere more peaceful and secluded. If you’re travelling with older children, Oliver recommends taking the coastal walk to Anfi del Mar beach, one of the most beautiful in Gran Canaria, which features glorious sand imported from the Bahamas. Here you can enjoy great amenities such as sun loungers and umbrellas, showers and on-site lifeguards, as well as wonderfully clear waters that are ideal for swimming.

There’s plenty to do here in the town as a family, including sailing, fishing and mini-golf, as well as whale-watching tours and glass-bottom boat trips. You’ll also find a good variety of family-friendly restaurants here too, mostly serving up fresh fish and seafood that has been caught by local fishermen, as well as lots of places selling ice-creams and refreshments. If you fancy travelling a little further afield, the popular resort of Maspalomas is around a 20-minute drive away, and here you’ll find the popular Palmitos Park, an interactive zoological and botanical centre that lets guests get up close and personal with exotic birds like parrots, toucans and flamingos. Children of all ages will delight in a walk around the butterfly house before heading to see reptiles such as komodo dragons, caiman and turtles. If cute and furry is more their thing, the park also houses a wide array of cuddly-looking critters, including meerkats, aardvarks and wallabies, that the kids will adore!

  • Et fantastisk fint hus

    on 17/12/2022

    Vi, en familie på 12 personer, hadde et veldig bra opphold på dette stedet. Et fantastisk fint hus med alle fasiliteter og et enda bedre uteområdet. Ikke aircondition, men det gjorde ingenting i desember. Verten svarer raskt og var behjelpelig med barneseter og barnesenger til oppholdet vårt.
