The latest Las Palmas & Gran Canaria property news including price updates and special offers.
After the events of 2020 it feels like folly to write a guide to the Las Palmas de Gran Canaria property market for 2021: So much in Gran Canaria depends on the speed of the vaccine rollout and the return of tourism.
But look forward we must because the end of the Covid-crisis is within reach. Covid or no Covid, Gran Canaria remains a wonderful place to live and own property. [Read more…]
While writing the 2020 guide to the Las Palmas de Gran Canaria property market, it occurred to me that there is a big unanswered question about the future.
If the Las Palmas property market keeps growing, who are the buyers?
The most expensive property for sale in the Canary Islands is in Monte Leon in south Gran Canaria, according to property portal Idealista.
At 6.9 million euros, the two-storey, 930 square metre villa was designed by German architect Friedrich Wilhelm Kraeme and is the current residence of internationally renowned pianist Justus Frantz.
The top floor consists of landscaped central patio, a large master suite, and four other double bedrooms with bathrooms. There is also an equipped industrial kitchen and living room with large windows facing south.
The ground floor has a magnificent hall divided into three separate spaces plus three bedrooms with en suite bathrooms.
The property also includes four bungalows, each with living room with rustic kitchen, and two with double bedrooms and a bathroom. A third habitable zone contains a living room with kitchen and a double bedroom.
Near the mansion there is a pool with gazebo and sauna and spectacular views. The 88,000 square metre property also includes large garden areas, vineyards, boating pool, tennis court and fruit orchards.
This property is a cultural icon of Gran Canaria as it is the location of the Franz and Friends Festival music event held during the summer.

I’ve written before about the benefits of using one estate agent to handle the sale of your Gran Canaria property via an exclusive contract.
But somehow, I’ve never managed to explain it in a few words (until now).
- You only get pestered by the estate agent you choose, rather than by lots of people you don’t know.
- All the island’s agents work to sell your property, but your agent is in charge of the whole process; marketing, viewings, paperwork, contracts, etc.
- Your chosen agent is there to look after your interests.
An exclusive contract with a good Gran Canaria agent means that you have complete control over the selling process.
Working exclusively with a good agent gives you the best possible chance of selling promptly and at the best possible price.
