Happy Gay Travel are pleased to offer Europe's Most Famous Exclusively Gay Male Only Complex - Villas Blancas. It has recently been extensively renovated and extended.
Conveniently located in the greener and quieter Campo de Golf area (just a short ride away from both the centre of Playa del Ingles and the beaches at Maspalomas) this well known complex offer a relaxed and friendly atmosphere - ideal for those who just want to chill out and take their holiday at their own pace.
Nestled in the green tourist area of Campo de Golf, leaving you just minutes away from the nudist beaches & cruising on the Maspalomas sand dunes and from the hedonistic night time delights of the Yumbo Center in the very centre of Playa del Ingles, the original Villas Blancas offers 23 secluded single bedroom bungalows and one 'studio type' bungalow incorporates another six 2/3 bedroom villas at Villas Blancas 2. They are set in tropical gardens, with a big newly refurbished pool, the dunes on the doorstep and the nightlife five minutes by cab.
All of the bungalows have been renovated and redecorated, with wood panelling, new furniture and secure doors and windows. There are separate twin or double bedrooms, bathroom, sun terrace and fully equipped kitchenette. They are cleaned five times a week and the towels/linen are changed frequently.
They all have satellite television with a 24hr porn channel, safes, air conditioning and direct-line telephones for much cheaper calls home than you probably get with your mobile.
The bungalows are set amongst palm trees in tropical gardens – and clothes are optional as you entertain old and new friends in your bungalow or around the friendly pool area.
Complete with a clothing optional pool, well tended garden areas and an onsite bar and bistro Villas Blancas is the ideal place to kick off your heels and relax under the Canarian sun, whatever the time of the year. As a gay only complex, you can choose to wear a swimsuit or simply go 'au naturel': it won't raise more than perhaps an admiring eyebrow!
The VILLAS BLANCAS BISTRO serves drinks, snacks and full meals all day and far into the night, so you don't really need to leave at all - though there are tennis courts and a fully-equipped gym next door and, despite the secluded location, a taxi will take you the centre of town in five minutes at a fraction of the cost of a city taxi.
Built in a typical Canarian bungalow (i.e., all on ground level) style, each apartment has a living/lounge area (with sofa bed), an equipped kitchenette with fridge, a private bathroom and a twin or double bedroom for 2 people. You'll find a front and rear patio, and all of the apartments are surrounded by lush, well tended gardens and plants. Inside each apartment is equipped with a television (including a porn channel), hi-fi, telephone, safe and an air-conditioning unit (which is payable locally if required). Bathroom towels are provided and maid cleaning is undertaken regularly.
Villas Blancas reception is ably handled by John and Laszlo during daytime hours, who can tell you more about Gran Canaria and the gay scene, as well as offering car rental, gay boat and other excursions.
Come and enjoy the freedom of Villas Blancas soon!
