Lanzarote is the most Easterly Island of the Canaries and is located a mere 40 miles off of the coast of Morocco – we enjoy brilliant sunshine all year around.
Lanzarote is a volcanic island – but don´t worry as about 400 years ago the eruptions stopped, the lava stilled and the skies cleared. The giant Volcanoes that had so dramatically changed Lanzarote's fertile landscape fell into slumber.
Some people still farm in the traditional way and in the centre of the Island you will find a number of vineyards where you are able to taste the local wine.
Some people still fish, and you can see boats leave every morning from a number of harbours across the Island, most notably in Playa Blanca where our villas are based.
Lanzarote is unique, even in the Canaries, as it has long golden beaches of sand carried on winds from the Sahara. It also has jet black beaches of volcanic sand, a testament to the crushing power of the Atlantic Ocean. There is the huge national park, an area untouched by a human foot since the cessation of the volcanoes, that is of course except for the lunar astronauts who prepared the moon landings on our Island.
Lanzarote is the cleanest of all Islands in the Canaries, and thanks to Cesar Manrique the least built up. No structure in Lanzarote is allowed to be built over 2 stories tall. All inland windows and doors should be green or brown and all seaside windows and doors should be blue or brown. All buildings are white. This gives a uniform, aesthetically pleasing, tranquil aspect to the island that is missing on the other Canaries and mainland Spain.
Canarian people are very friendly and relaxed, family is always a priority here and as such your babies and children will be made to feel welcome where ever you go. Eating out is always a pleasure here on Lanzarote with a huge range of options from the small traditional tapas bars to larger contempory style European restaurants.
