It is on a beautiful complex in the peaceful sought after area of Chipmunk Mountain which gets you 'away' from the hussle and bussle of the resort centre. The complex has a terrific large swimming pool and a safe small children's pool, communal gardens and each property has it's own private garden. We have added a 6 person jacuzzi/hot tub to the very private rear garden area which I am sure will be a big hit with everyone, especially after a day of sun soaking !! The property has been tastefully furnished throughout and benefits a recently built extension to the front which can be used as an office if you have a bit of office work to do while your away !!. It also has WIFI (Paid locally) and has all the facilities you need to enjoy this all year round sunshine destination. There will be tea/coffee and fresh milk and drinking water waiting for you on arrival !!
The property is just a 10 minutes taxi ride from the airport - so a car is certainly not essential. There is also a selection of sandy beaches within walking distance as well as all the bars/restaurants of Caleta de Fuste, the Championship golf course (home to the Spanish Open in 2004) and the Atlantico Shopping Centre is 5 mins drive, 20 mins walk. Villa Teliz is the ideal place to enjoy all the benefits of a shared complex but at the same time have the luxury of your own home from home.

The Fuerteventura region

Caleta de Fuste has many child-safe beaches, and their various water and sand based activities, as well as bars, restaurants, tours, cruises, coastal walks plus much much more.
Caleta de Fuste has much to offer you as a tourist, In all Fuerteventura, and in particular Caleta de Fuste, should be a destination for everyone at some point, make it yours this year.
Caleta de Fuste has expanded over the last couple of years. There are now two 18 hole Golf Courses.
The resort of Caleta de Fuste, has been developed in such a way that it is enjoyed by families and others who appreciate a safe, relaxing holiday in a friendly environment.
Caleta de Fuste
Caleta de Fuste is a well ordered man-made low-rise resort catering for north European visitors looking for a home-from-home holiday experience. The beaches and the port are the centres of attention with boat trips and windsurfing providing the main alternatives to sunbathing. There is also 2 championship golf courses within the resort.
Who goes there?
Caleta de Fuste is completely devoted to package tourism, and is especially popular with younger families, couples and retired people from Britain, France, Germany, Italy and most Euro Zone countries. It is a very friendly, quiet, safe holiday destination and relatively crime free !!
Where in the world?
Caleta de Fuste is on the east coast of the Canarian Island of Fuerteventura (Spain), half way down the island. It is 12km (7.5 miles) south of the island capital, Puerto del Rosario, and 8km (5 miles) south of the airport. Caleta de Fuste is completely flat. 50+ miles east of Fuerteventura is the coast of Africa, so be aware of the strong sun rays here, it's not your 'Spanish Sun' it's an African climate here, so bring plenty of sun cream and aftersun !!
When to go?
Fuerteventura benefits from year-round sunshine and very little rain, with average daytime temperatures varying between 16- 20C in the 'winter' months of December/January/February and 28-34°C during rest of year. It can get up to 40c in July/August on some days though. The island does usually have a constant Northerly breeze which keeps you cool in the summer months
The main beach is set around a large bay and offers a broad stretch of golden sand, shelving very gently into the warm sea. There is plenty of room for everyone and it is ideal for young families. It is also a good place to learn windsurfing/scuba diving/jet skis with schools on, or close by the beach. There is also another quieter golden sandy beach with safe swimming lagoons and a sandy sea bed with no stones that is accessed via a sandy footpath to the right of the main resort beach as your looking out to sea towards the Atlantico shopping centre ! it takes 5 mins walking from main resort beach, this beach also has a lovely Bar/Restaurant which is set 50 metres out to see via a ffotbridge and the food and service here is excellent and is a great retreat for a cooling drink after sun soaking !!
Beyond the beach
The port is home to watersports operators offering jet-skiing, windsurfing and diving. Sea excursions include the Oceanarium Explorer, a glass-bottom submarine-style craft, and a catamaran which boasts a high success rate spotting dolphins and whales. On the other side of the main road, 2km (1.2 miles) from the beach, is the 2 Golf Clubs, both are championship course but no handicap is required to play here and you just pay and play !
Caleta de Fuste has been designed with families in mind and children are accommodated everywhere. The port has a small aquarium and older children will enjoy the ‘submarine' excursion. Adjacent to the beach are trampolines and mini golf. There is a 10-pin bowling alley on the main Carretera Jandía road inside the Atlantico shopping centre that has an array of shops, bars, restaurants and a large SPAR supermarket
The shops in Caleta de Fuste are grouped in Centro Commerciales (indoor centres) providing standard, mass-market, mediocre-quality goods. The island market visits the resort on Saturdays and is situated 5 mins wak from your villa next to the Motecastillo Centre which has a few bars and cafes etc. The market is very popular and starts approx 9am to approx 1pm and it offers the chance to buy more individual items, such as local leatherwork, clothes, linens, lace, ceramics, embroidery and African goods. Bartering is the norm and quite good fun with the African sellers !! Whatever the price is on offer, offer them 50% and barter from there !!
A night on the town
Caleta de Fuste boasts a number of music bars though on the whole it is a quiet resort after dark (no club 18-30's here). Many hotels and apartment blocks organise evening entertainment (discos, cabaret, quiz nights etc.) in house and welcome anyone.
The ever popular Piero's Music Café/Disco Pub (in town centre) offers live entertainment, shows and karoke everynight. The island capital Puerto del Rosario, 12 km (7.5 miles) south, has the best discos and nightclubs in this part of the island, but these cater mainly for locals but they will make you feel welcome. If you would like to ‘go native' for the evening find a friendly local and take their advice. Prices in Rosario tend be a little cheaper than in resorts.
The overall standard of food in Caleta de Fuste is excellent, with most restaurants serving Spanish-international dishes, Tapas etc. There are also several fast food outlets. Good local food can be found everywhere however - the best fish restaurant in the resort is Frasquita (Playa Caleta de Fuste) looking onto the beach, on the quieter, opposite side of the bay from the port. The owner comes to you with an array of fish and you pick the one you want and is cooked to perfection !! The best steakhouse in town is called Fado Rock and you must try the Chatauxbriand cooked on hot stones at the side of your table. Make sure your hungry when you visit here as there is plenty to eat !!
Caleta de Fuste is a relatively small resort and can be covered on foot. Island buses are scheduled for locals (not visitors) and services between Caleta de Fuste and places of interest are quite frequent. Hire a car if you want to explore the rest of Fuerteventura.
Exploring further afield
Antigua, the provincial centre, 20km (12.5 miles) west of Caleta de Fuste, is a best-kept village with a pretty square featuring an 18th-century church. Just north of here the Centro Artesanía Molino (Carretera Antigua Km 20) is a re-created small village-style complex, set around a 200-year old windmill. It includes a craft shop, museum and an attractive restaurant. A ‘must visit' is the ancient island capital, Betancuría, 25km (15.5 miles) west. Founded in 1404 by the Spanish island conquerors, today it is no bigger than a village. Many of its houses date from the 17th and 18th centuries. In the centre the Casa Santa María (Plaza Iglesia) is a beautiful Spanish-Colonial house which showcases the island's crafts, culture and history. It has an atmospheric bar, a charming outdoor cafe-restaurant and a more formal restaurant which is one of the best on the island.
South of Caleta de Fuste is Jandia (approx 45mins drive) but worth the trip, the beach here stretches for miles and you will feel like your in the Caribbean !!
The next best seat in town is on the balcony of the Restaurante Puerto Castillo (Muelle del Castillo), overlooking the port. Order their best steak (sourced from South America) or a traditional Canarian dish such as shoulder of lamb and enjoy your meal watching the sun go down over your holiday home.
