Like the sound of waves outside your doorstep? Gardone is truly a dream come. Nestled on the island’s southern tip in the quieter area of Faro Park, you’re just walking distance to a variety of bars and restaurants. Make sure to visit some of the best beaches on the island, including the popular Papagayo Beach. If you fancy some adventure, the phenomenal Timanfaya National Park is just a 25-minute drive away and makes for a great family day out.
Gardone is a traditional treasure trove, boasting whitewashed stucco walls and bright wooden windows that are overflowing with authentic Spanish characters. The interiors are cool and inviting, with peach-tiled floors and beige walls that lend a sense of elegant charm. The décor reflects a contemporary glow throughout the villa, with a neutral white and beige colour scheme to match. The open-plan living space features a homely living room, with plush sofas and scatter cushions huddled around the old-fashioned fireplace. A picturesque nook, the indoor dining space features a cushioned corner bench and a glossy wooden table. Adjoined is the high-end kitchen, with sleek white cabinetry and the latest appliances for the easiest cooking experience.
The sun terrace is what we imagine when we think of an idyllic retreat, dotted with sun loungers and surrounded by volcanic black sand. The shade-seekers will find solace under the veranda, with a set of comfy chairs perfect for unwinding with a good book. If you fancy dinner whilst soaking up the warm sea air, the alfresco dining table and outdoor barbecue set make for the perfect evening setting. The outdoor space will keep everyone entertained, and you’ll want to make a dive for the kidney-shaped outdoor pool. As an added bonus, the refreshing pool is heated free of charge between the months of November – May.
