Fontanales Pelibuey is a traditional canarian house located near the green and fertile Barranco del Laurel valley, two kilometers from the village of Fontanales in the Municipality of Moya. It is an interesting example of a rural house that shows us the evolution of the traditional rural architecture of Gran Canaria over the last 100 years.
First of all, the location stands out because the house is located on a promontory that originally allowed access and control to a subsistence agriculture and livestock and is currently a privileged place to look out over the landscapes of the Laurel Ravine. Secondly, the north-south orientation of the house, which, like the cave houses, allows heating the main patio and the entrance of the house with the first rays of morning sun and, thanks to the vegetation of the environment, also allows to regulate the incidence of sun and ventilation throughout the day. In the third place, the house tells us about its history that began at the beginning of the 20th century with the construction of a small rectangular body (which now corresponds to the three bedrooms) and which became, at the beginning of the 21st century, A U-shaped building dedicated to rural tourism.
Finally we believe that the most important of Fontanales Pelibuey is the peace that transmits both the place in which it is located and the building itself. The sounds, the smells, the views or the biodiversity do not leave anyone indifferent.
Mind you that as it is located in a Protected Natural Area the last track to the get to the house goes through a land road (500 meters).
This isolated house, situated in the Rural Park of Doramas (specifically in the national park of the Tilos de Moya), allows us to enjoy beautiful views of the mountains and the north of the island, or to take a walk through the grounds, some two hectares in size, of which a small part is dedicated to growing potatoes, carrots and maize. You can visit the village of Fontanales, one of the most beautiful places on the island, and where you can go rambling or cycling through the countryside.
