Lanzarote - Landscapes to take your breath away

Many of our villas in Lanzarote are instantly recognisable to this holiday island from their sleek contemporary, white sugar-cube facades. In fact the whole destination stands out to the eye with its volcanic landscapes, beaches and artist influences of celebrated local architect, César Manrique.

  • Lanzarote Attractions

    With so much to offer, you’ll find exciting things to see and do from the moment your Lanzarote holiday begins. Unsurprisingly for this amazing Canary Island, there’s excursions galore on the sea and its shores. Lovers of watersports can cruise along the waves on jet skis and inflatables. Thrills and spills await for all you adventurous holidaymakers. For those of you that long for something a little more laid-back, there’s plenty for you too. Fishing trips and dolphin – watching tours are ideal for those of you who are just finding your sea legs.

    If you’re looking for an activity the kids are guaranteed to love, look no further than Aquapark Costa Teguise. This fun-filled water park features all kinds of slides, rapids and whirlpools – everything for a fun day out! Another fantastic place to visit from your Lanzarote villa is the Rancho Texas Lanzarote Park. Here you’ll find magnificent birds of prey alongside beautiful sea lions and many other types of animals. There are pony rides, a splash pool and kids can even have a go at cowboy lessons.

    For the discerning golfers amongst you, a Lanzarote villa is just the place to be spending your holiday. You can spend the day golfing at Lanzarote Golf in Puerto del Carmen or Costa Teguise Golf, soaking up the wonderful sunshine as you go.

  • Lanzarote Shopping

    A holiday just wouldn’t be a holiday without a spot of shopping, and when you stay in a Lanzarote holiday villa you’ll be able to do just that. Many of the main resorts house large shopping centres where you’ll find your favourite retail chains, and enjoy fantastic savings thanks to tax-free shopping. Costa Teguise, Play Blanca, Puerto del Carmen and Playa Honda are especially popular.

    Make your way to any of the smaller resorts, away from the hustle and bustle, for stylish boutiques where you can shop for unique items and traditional gifts to take back home. Discover the winding, narrow streets of Arrecife, and the many quaint shops that line them. Here you can purchase hand-made lace, table cloths, local art, leather goods and more.

    Throughout the year, various markets are held, selling everything from local produce to hand-crafted jewellery. These lively markets are a great opportunity to find unusual items and nab yourself a bargain, too! Teguise market is the island’s oldest and largest open-air market, and is a lovely way to spend a Sunday morning away from your villa. The whole town comes alive and the atmosphere is buzzing as people search through the goods, trying to find the perfect purchase.

  • Lanzarote Beaches

    Crystal clear waters, sandy stretches that go for miles and picturesque coves – it’s fair to say that Lanzarote’s beaches are a real delight. Whether you’re a dedicated sun-worshipper or an all-day-swimmer, you’ll hear the call of the beach from your Lanzarote villa and you definitely won’t be able to resist.

    To the north, Costa Teguise is the perfect spot for windsurfing, while nearby La Santa beach and Famara beach are where you’ll find surfers and body boarders catching waves. Costa Teguise and La Santa boast calm waters, making them perfect for beginners, while Famara has slightly larger waves for those who are more advanced.

    If you want a beach that’s in the heart of it all, head to Puerto del Carmen, a lively beach on Lanzarote’s south coast. This family-oriented beach is surrounded by excellent restaurants, bars and facilities – just what you need for a family day out. Kids will love splashing around in the shallows, and you’ll love reading your favourite book on the sandy shores. Everyone wins!

    Another amazing beach in Lanzarote is Playa Blanca. Playa Blanca translates to ‘white beach’ and when you visit, it’s easy to see why it’s been given this name. White sands stretch out invitingly before you. It’s a genuine paradise. From here, you can take a ferry across to Fuerteventura and explore what this neighbouring island has to offer.

  • Lanzarote Sightseeing

    Although it may be hard to drag yourself away from your fantastic home from home, this wonderful island has so much natural beauty, and so many amazing places just waiting to be explored. From natural wonders to cultural monuments, you simply must spend few days, at least, checking out some of the island’s most captivating sites.

    Head to Jameos del Agua, in the north of the island, and prepare to be wowed by the beautiful salt water lagoon and underground caves. Make your way into the caves and you’ll not only see stalagmites and stalactites, but you’ll find a unique cave concert hall. Wow!

    If you want to see what years of volcanic activity look like on the surface, the best place to go is the Timanfaya National Park. Even though the volcano beneath is dormant, you can still feel its heat due to temperatures of 400°C-600°C which can be found just a few metres below the surface! Special demonstrations are held at the very top, and you can also spend time exploring the craters that are over one hundred years old, as well as the breath-taking active geysers of the Fire Mountains. It’s sure to be an experience you remember forever.

    Lanzarote’s culture can be appreciated at every turn, with monuments and museums dotted all around the island. The Museo del Campesino is an absolute must-see. This attraction includes a 15 metre sculpture constructed from the designs of well-known local artist and architect César Manrique, and a life-size reconstruction of a traditional farm. There’s also a tapas bar and restaurant, so you can grab a bite to eat during your visit.

  • Lanzarote Holidays - Points of Interest

    • Explore the vast Sahara sand beaches around the Punta de Papagayo peninsular in the South.

Shaldon, Teignmouth Couple
Spacious, clean, was as described.
There are no English TV programs to watch. A DVD player would have helped. On side light over the bed had no light bulb so my wife found it difficult to read in bed. One corner kitchen cabinet door needed attention. In the winter it needs heating in the lounge as the nights can get cold. Didn't see the villa manager so can't comment.

We found the beds comfortable for our needs.
The villa was very cold in the evenings and nothing to warm up.
Make sure you take warm clothing in the winter for inside the villa

Family (the eldest child is at school)
Spacious villa
great wifi/ entertainment equipment
comfy beds
lovely pool, hot tub and outdoor area
central location
weather was great
The only thing I can comment on is the lighting in the kitchen, which is not great and it is hard to cook a meal as there is no light on the worktops.

The holiday was quite expensive
