A couple of weeks ago we went for a weekend break in Firgas, a small village inland from the north shore of Gran Canaria.
We were staying in a flat very close the center of the village (which is not hard considering the size of it).
It is a nice place, but be warned - precisely because it is close to the village center, Friday and Saturday nights are likely to be noisy, as people trample along the street outside your front windows to get to the bars and restaurants and then back again, talking as they tend to do (well they are Spanish, so they gotta). If it is just one or two of you, or even a family with one small kid you won't have a problem though - the bedroom is towards the back of the flat. I had to use the sofa bed in the front room of the house, that's why I could hear the street.
