|Further details outdoors|
Outside the front door there is a wonderful view North up to the mountains, while walking through the apartment and out onto the terrace the vista is spectacular: Looking down two floors onto the large pool, with it’s separate children’s pool and the pool bar, the voyeur gets a great opportunity to people watch, and looking up you see out over the whole complex (southwards) and out to sea. Magic.
The terrace also has an outdoor table and chairs for four, and is the perfect spot to watch out for the Pod of whales that have often been seen, close in-shore, over the last couple of years.
No smoking inside.
The Canary Islands region
Lanzarote is only 70 km from the African coast and has, arguably, the best climate in the World. Where else in the World do you not need air-conditioning or heating? The temperature in the summer rarely gets into the 90s, and rarely drops below 70 in the winter. More magic. And, with only three inches of rainfall a year, it has less precipitation than the Sahara has dew!
The Island is quite beautiful. Dry – yes, and not able to sustain many trees, means that there are wonderful far reaching views to distant mountains interspersed with clutches of small white Spanish villages and palm trees.
Fortunately, and thanks to the Islands great mentor and painter Cesar Manreque, The Island benefits from strict planning rules and regulations and, unlike the rest of the archipelago where the norm is “high rise” and “high density”, there are no ugly skyscrapers.
There are a number of day-out tours by bus to discover many of the treats the Island has – standing on top of a volcano and watching your lunch cooking (from the heat) is not something you can experience everywhere! For those wanting to hire cars, rates are very reasonable.
Costa Teguise is a holiday resort and only 30 years old. It is situated on the southeastern coast of the Island, and about fifteen minutes from the airport by car. The capital, Arrecife, is only ten minutes. There are three large horseshoe shaped beaches ensuring safe swimming. The Las Cucharas beach is renown for it’s windsurfing, and regularly hosts the World championships.
The Island’s only Water Park is nearby, and the oldest Golf Course (one of only two) is in Costa Teguise. The picturesque capital of the municipality, Teguise, has one of the largest markets in the Islands and provides a day out in it’s own right.
The resort has many bars and restaurants catering for all tastes and ages and, for the epicurean, boasts some of the best restaurants on the Island, some of which have won National culinary awards.
The Spanish Royal family have a private complex in Costa Teguise which they use for 'winter sun" and their Christmas vacation.

Third time in Lanza and at the Playa Bastian apartments. This was the first time we stayed in this apartment and it was great.Linda and Hugh offer a pick up and drop off service to the apartment which is an added bonus. The apartment is very well equipped with a lovely aspect, it is extremely well presented, clean and spacious. It is ideally situated close to the main town,,bars, and shops. The taxi rank and local buses are on the door step too. Timanfaya is worth a visit, also the market and Arrecife town. All in all a fab apartment in an excellent location.
Please note that airport pick-ups and drop-offs are only for family and friends. XX
