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.

  • Private pools
  • Year-round sun

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.

Opened in 2017, Villa Tara is in the heart of Porto Calero, an atmospheric marina with superb restaurants, shops, bars and a smattering of glamorous yachts! Relax in and around the pool (heated November to April) before meandering down to the port – and the regular ferry service to Puerto del Carmen. Villa Tara sleeps up to six.

Casa Mariola is a three-bedroom villa, a short walk from the pretty village and restaurants of Las Breñas and with beaches just 4kms away. You can see the mountains of Timanfaya National Park and gorgeous sea views from the roof terrace.

Puerto del Carmen is just a five minute drive from Clara Villa, a light and airy three-bedroom property with a heated pool. It’s a downhill walk to the village of Tias which boasts some lovely cafes, restaurants and shops.

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.
