Villa | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 10
I have been taking holidays in Costa Teguise for the last 5 years, I feel very fortunate to have been able to purchase such a gorgeous holiday home there. The villa is spacious, modern, very well laid out, with a gorgeous private secluded pool perfect for families with or without young children. The non slip surface around the pool is a real bonus to prevent young ones hurting themselves and the terrace BBQ area is just magnificent. The villa is on the edge of the town so there is nothing to disturb your peacefull nights sleep. You'll really want to have a car to get around, but a cab back from the town centre if you've had one too many is only 2.5 to 3.5 euros depending on time of day. The views of the volcanic mountains to the back of the villa are stunning and the stars at night are something to behold

The villa is beautifully designed and very spacious and characterful. Mostly on one level so very easy for accomodating young children and / or elderly or disabled guests. There are two twin bedrooms on the lower ground floor level with their own bathroom, this area is ideal for younger children as its quietly away from the main social areas of the villa so as not to disturb there sleep if you're having fun when the little ones have gone to bed.

Perhaps the pools best feature is actually the non slip surround, so you can feel that bit safer that the kids wont slip and hurt themselves when they are larking around. The outside area also beneifts a pool side shower, a range of mature canarian plant life that is well maintained in the garden areas an impressive terrace area for keeping out of the sun and preparing food around the purpose built BBQ.
The Lanzarote region
Weather in Lanzarote is great almost all year around. The climate is typically dry, with a nice breeze that makes it feel not quite as hot as other summer holiday destinations. The hottest months are May through to the end of September, with July and August typically around 32 to 35 c. If you're not so keen on hot temparatures, almost any other time of year gives a steady 25 c or even 20 c at Xmas and New Year with bright sunshine to really cheer you up and get rid of your winter blues.
The island is steeped in fascinating history, with some great places to visit such as Timanfaya (the main volcano), Jameous Del Agua (the most amazing design by the famous architect and local hero Cesar Manrique) will simply blow you away...think the Hilton Hotel meets the Flintstones! Some great shopping to be had in Playa Honda or Puerto Del Carmen just 20 and 30 mins drive away respectively or even in the local market thats in the main square every friday night.
I could go on for ages, but I do provide a guide to the things you should try to take in while visiting, there is so much to do and you'll see views and terrain that is totally unique and truly inspiring.
Whether you are up for an active holiday or to chill out by the beach or pool then Costa Teguise can ticked all your boxes. Activities such as Mountain Biking, Volcano Trekking, Horse Riding, Scuba Diving, Go Karting, Wind Surfing, Kite Boarding, Quad Biking and much more can be organised for you by www.activeadventures.co.uk. There's also an amazing Hydrotherapy health spa at the Beatiz Plaza Hotel which is just a 10 minute walk from the villa, 2 hours and 20 euro's later and you'll quite literally feel like a new you !
Night life wise there are plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from to cover all tastes, but the villa is far enough away to keep any late night noise from disturbing your sleep, yet near enough to be just a couple of euros in a cab after a few too many.
