This modern 3-bedroom holiday home on the southern coast of Lanzarote offers attractive accommodation with beautiful views. Suitable for up to six guests, Villa Fresa is located around 600m from the beach and just a short distance from all the amenities of Playa Blanca.
You will have the use of a private swimming pool measuring 5m x 3m during your stay at Villa Fresa, which has easy step access. The poolside area has plenty of seating and space to dine on a covered terrace. There are sun loungers and a barbecue, and you can enjoy superb views of the surrounding mountains.
Inside, this house has a cool and comfortable living area with a tiled floor, which offers satellite TV and DVD. You also have Wi-Fi available too. Patio doors take you straight out on to the terrace where the outdoor dining area is. You have another dining area inside with seating for six, as well as a well-equipped kitchen with an oven, hob, microwave, dishwasher and fridge freezer. There is also a washing machine at this property.
A double and twin bedroom are supplemented by a third bedroom with bunk beds, making this a great choice for a family with young children. Other useful equipment, including a cot and high-chair, are also available.
This cosy villa is an ideal base for exploring the south-western corner of the island. Playa Blanca has three beaches you may like to visit, one which shares its name, the golden Playa Dorada, and Playa Flamingo. About 10 minutes’ drive away you also have the magnificent Papagayo beaches (five of them) which are great for swimming.
The pretty Marina Rubicon offers more choices of things to do, whether that’s water-sports, dining or taking a boat trip to the uninhabited island of Los Lobos. There is even an underwater museum if you would like to dive down and see it.
Constantly sunny, the island of Lanzarote boasts dramatic landscapes and beautiful beaches. The closest of the Canaries to Africa, it also enjoys the most consistent climate of them all, averaging 17°C in winter and 24°C in the summer.
A visit to Timanfaya National Park in the south of the island provides a breathtakingly scenic introduction to the volcanic character of the island. The mighty eruptions of the 1730s left around 25% of the island submerged under a sea of solid lava.
Possibly the island’s most famous son, the artist, architect and sculptor, César Manrique, defined the route through the park, which takes in a number of colourful volcanoes, and even designed the restaurant, El Diablo, which can be found on top of the Islote de Hilario with incredible panoramic views. Manrique’s influence is found all over Lanzarote - it is largely his responsibility that tourism on the island developed within certain aesthetic guidelines, without spoiling the island’s landscape, and respecting its customs and traditions.
Except for one hotel building in Arrecife, all buildings on the island are low-rise – “not taller than a Canarian palm” – and you won’t find any advertising hoardings at the roadsides. What you will find are fascinating wind mobiles and sculptures and pretty villages in a symphony of white and green.
You won’t have to look far to find a great beach on Lanzarote, with almost 100 to choose from. The main resorts of Puerto del Carmen, Playa Blanca and Costa Teguise include some that were created for visitors using Saharan sands, but if you prefer the real thing, there are plenty of natural ones. Perhaps one of the most interesting is the so-called ‘Burnt Beach’ of Playa Quemada, with its black sands, while Papagayo is rated as one of the most scenic on the island – go via water-taxi from Playa Blanca and see for yourself.
