Type of holiday
It is very important to decide , before you choose a villa , what type of holiday or vacation you want. For example , some people prefer to be isolated on a fine Gran Canaria hill and sit by the pool all day and just relax under the Gran Canaria sun. Others prefer to be close to the action , somewhere they can quickly get to the local city or have access to the main roads to make day trips . Some people prefer to rent an apartment in town. All these different types of vacations can (and should) influence the villa or apartment of your choice.
