First class luxury residences

Quality and elegance characterise the villas in Monte León – from the prime construction materials used, to the wide range of luxury facilities typically installed in these prestigious homes.

Most of these properties are built on plots of land measuring over 8000m2 and already have large pools and magnificent gardens. Still, there will be ample space left for you to create your perfect recreational area according to your tastes.

A countryside haven of peace in the south of Gran Canaria

As you approach Monte León along a well-maintained mountain road, you pass through some of the most splendid countryside Gran Canaria has to offer – marvellous volcanic mountains dotted with palm trees and Canarian pine.

Up there, at 400 metres above sea level, you can enjoy absolute peace and tranquillity, broken only by the sound of birds performing their merry little tunes. You will also see many of the exotic creatures that fly over to Monte León from the nearby subtropical oasis of Palmitos Park.

Where the privileged few find serenity and inspiration

Fresh mountain air and breathtaking views over the Atlantic Ocean add to Monte León’s unique charm. The incredible feeling of absolute serenity and privacy has made this area a favourite with the rich and affluent who want to enjoy the beautiful weather of Gran Canaria away from the crowds.

Many of the luxurious villas in Monte León belong to successful entrepreneurs and world famous people like the musician Justus Frantz and have attracted people like Leonard Bernstein and former German Chancellor Helmut Schmidt.
