Lanzarote

Blessed with an ideal year-

round climate

The island

Lanzarote is an island with almost perpetual sunshine, particularly in the south, because of the warming influence of the Mirador del Rio, Lanzarote Gulf Stream and favourable trade winds.
 

Playa Blanca (where most of our villas are located) is recognised as the ideal location for those wishing to soak up the sun at any time of the year.

The development of Lanzarote as a holiday island has been influenced greatly by Cesar Manrique an artist and architect who was able to influence its development through an understanding of the need and benefits of tourism, but also a need for conservation of the 

islands natural beauty.

As a result, Manrique created a number of attractive places for visitors 

to enjoy, with the preservation of the landscape in mind. You can see these throughout the island including: Mirador Rio in the North where you can admire a spectacular view across to the island of La Graciosa; the beautiful Cactus Garden with restored windmill; and, perhaps most stunning of all, the house Manrique designed and built as his home, in lava bubbles in the midst of the volcanic landscape.

Things to see and do...

Other spectacular natural sights include: the Timanfaya National Park, where you can take a guided tour of the moonscape and volcanoes; the spectacular caves in the centre of the island Jameos del Agua and La Cueva de los Verdes; the stunning green lagoon at El Golfo; and the 

beautiful, but strange, wine region of La Geria.

 

It is also an excellent location for surfing, kitesurfing, sailing, cycling and many other 

sporting activities.

 

There is also a wide choice of excellent restaurants dotted all over the island, where seafood, cheese, canarian potatoes and peppers Padron are specialities.

Lanzarote is around three and a half hours direct flying time from most of the major airports in the UK.
