Villas in Lanzarote

Mark and David's verdict:

Just four hours from the UK, Lanzarote ranks among the prettiest of the Canary Islands, with low-key resorts, sandy beaches, dramatic volcanic landscapes and a wonderful year-round climate. It's easy and fun to explore and offers a wide selection of villas with private pools, making it an ideal choice for families, couples and groups of friends.

Vintage Travel says

Lanzarote boasts year-round sunshine, a wide choice of regional flight departures from the UK, fascinating landscapes and a warm welcome – add to that charming fishing villages, markets packed with delicious locally-grown produce and a thriving restaurant scene and you have the perfect destination for a villa holiday.

Our villas range in size from two up to six bedrooms and each has a private pool, barbecue and spacious living areas inside and out.

The characterful and family-owned Cortijo de Cabreron is ideally located in a tranquil rural area only 4 km from the relatively bustling Costa Teguise area, with its great windsurfing beaches and wide choice of activities and restaurants. Sleeping up to five, the rustic views are breathtaking whilst the charming interior is both cosy and airy.

Villa Oasis is in the Oasis de Nazaret, formerly home to Omar Sharif, and in walking distance of one of our favourite restaurants on the entire island. It sleeps up to six with expansive south-facing views across the landscape towards the sea.

You can see the island of La Graciosa in the distance from Villa La Acequia, chosen not least for its seclusion and close proximity to the traditional village of Tinajo. There’s even a gym if you’re feeling energetic.

The intimate Villa Placeres is popular for couples and boasts a hard-to-leave double gazebo by the secluded pool. It’s in the sleepy Canarian village of Guatiza – the market square, with its local bars and a restaurant, is a short stroll away.
