Finca Mirador Bandama

"The Netherlands has left its mark on this part of Gran Canaria." Surprised, I look to the side at the owner of Finca Mirador Bandama, with whom I enjoy the last sunrays on one of the terraces of the finca. I am about to open my mouth to ask what he means when he beats me to it: "Another glass, Eliza?" I nod and as he refills my glass with his homemade wine, he points to the high mountain peak to the left in front of us. "Look, that's Pico de Bandama. This peak is so beautiful that you can see the entire north and east coast of the island. And on clear days you can even see Fuerteventura. Next to it is Caldera de Bandama, a large crater."

I look dreamily at the volcanic peak. Around it I see vegetation that I can immediately identify: I can clearly distinguish the colours of the orange trees. Next to it are fig trees and palm trees. And is it...? "Look, a eucalyptus." The owner beat me to it and pointed to the slope around the crater. "They grow here too." I raise my nose, but the tree is too far away for me to smell it. But I can smell the scent of the fruit and olive trees in the garden around me, which the owner told me about earlier. Incredible: the garden of the finca covers 1000 m2. Around it is another 15,000 m2 of land that also belongs to the finca. The vineyards stretch out across the green plains around us. I did not know there was so much flora and fauna in Gran Canaria. But what is this Dutch influence he was talking about?

The owner looks at me with a smile. "This wine region is called Bandama. Our finca is even located in the Parque Natural Bandama, named after the crater further down. It owes its name to the Dutch merchant Daniel van Dame, who cultivated his wine in the crater in the 17th century. Funny, isn't it?" He raises his glass and wants to say "Salud", but now I have outsmarted him. "Prost", I say, and clink my glass against his. "This is how we do it in the Netherlands".

The best way to discover your destination is by car!

Are you booking a flight holiday? Then a rental car of the lowest category (Small Class) is selected as standard for your trip and you have the option of upgrading the rental car. You can pick up the rental car at the airport and drive to your accommodation yourself. 

Are you booking a holiday with own transportation? Then the rental car is not included in your trip and you can (at some destinations) book the rental car if you are interested. When you book your rental car, you can pick it up at your destination and drive to your accommodation yourself. The transport to the pick-up point of the rental car is arranged by you.

  • The prices on this page are upgrade prices. They are indicative for your selected travel duration in the chosen season.
  • The car models shown are indicative of the category they fall into. A rental car in the Small Classe with full insurance cover is included as standard for your holiday. After booking, we will check if the chosen car is available. If it is not, we will try to offer you a suitable alternative. In exceptional cases it may happen that no rental car is available. In both cases we will contact you to discuss the options.
