I do not accept bookings online. If I did, then you, the holiday-maker, would be charged an additional 5% by Holiday Lettings for using this online facility. I believe my guests would wish to have the choice of how to make payments WITHOUT any additional charge so I intend to defer from accepting online bookings for as long as I possibly can. You can make payments to me by cheque / bank transfer to UK account / bank transfer to Euro account or by banker's draft (all without any additional charge). You can also pay via PayPal.

Lanzarote is situated just off the coast of Africa and is the most easterly of the Canary Islands, being the fourth largest island in the Canaries.
The island enjoys a mild dry climate and is the perfect year-round destination. It is also a volcanic island, often described as "lunar" or "Martian". Lanzarote boasts the longest volcanic tunnel in the world which is over 7 km long and includes La Cueva de los Verdes (fantastic optical illusion at the end of the tour) and Jameos del Aqua (which houses the spectacular and unique albino crabs [not found anywhere else in the world], with the lowest part of the cave being used occasionally as a concert hall). Both caves are well worth visiting.
Cesar Manrique, born in Arrecife (Lanzarote), was renowned as a painter, sculptor, architect, and ecologist - among other things. One of his creations is The Cactus Gardens where you can see an impressive collection of Cacti and sculptures.
Other areas of interest include Guinate Tropical Park and Penguin Paradise in northern Lanzarote which is home to many exotic birds, animals, reptiles and fish (great for the children), Timanfaya National Park (where you can experience a camel ride) followed by a trip to the top of fire mountain. Here you can witness a bizarre volcanic experience - or sample the food on offer in El Diablo restaurant.
Teguise old town is worth a visit on a non-market day Teguise used to the capital of Costa Teguise (until 1852) and you will find that the past is perfectly preserved here. The parish church of Guadalupe is the oldest on the island. In 1984, it was reformed and turned into the town art gallery displaying exhibitions of contemporary art. Opening times: Monday to Friday, 10am to 4pm, Saturdays and Sundays, 11am to 3pm.
El Palacio de Spinola is situated in the main square, known popularly as La Plaza de Los Leones; nowadays it is a museum with an exhibition gallery. Opening hours: every day except Wednesday, 9.30am to 2.30pm.
Shops are spread throughout the wide cobbled streets – it’s very quaint but may not be to everyone’s tastes, as it is not the hub of tourist attention. There’s a small fruit/vegetable/bread shop (quite insignificant frontage) where you will find the most juicy and tasty melon and strawberries. They also sell a range of organic foods, for those of you who want to make a tasty lunch. Again, a regular bus service to Teguise is available.
The Wine Museum of Lanzarote is located at the old cellars of the "El Grifo" wineries. While the buildings themselves are of some historical importance, so too are the ancient tools and machinery which have been preserved and are now on show in the wine museum. Entrance fee is 3 euro per adult which includes free wine tasting.
Why not visit Lanzarote Aquarium or , indeed, Mirador del Rio, Lanzarote's highest point, to take in the fabulous views of surrounding islands (open daily 10am-6pm).
For those interested in things nautical, a visit to Puerto Calero marina is a must, not only to enjoy the fabulous array of boats, but also to relax, unwind and enjoy the fine food on offer from the many restaurants lining the marina boardwalk. There is also a good selection of shops within the marina - something for the ladies to enjoy!
If you’re after an excursion which combines excitement for the kids and relaxation for adults, then a day of luxury Catamaran sailing with Catlanza (departing from Puerto Calero marina) should be on your list of things to do. The giant catamaran has a twin hull which ensures smooth sailing (great peace of mind for those of you who don’t have a best sea legs). Once on board, kids can join up with the crew and help them sail the boat and raise the huge sails. Once anchored at the beautiful beaches at Papagayo, the kids will be kept busy by enjoying a free jet-ski ride (with an instructor) and learn to snorkel. The excursion includes free food and drink – including the child-friendly option of pasta with either tuna or vegetarian sauce, plenty of salad and fresh fruit. It is a full day’s entertainment and, as you would expect, it is expensive - €60 for adults and €35 for children (under 16 years).
From Puerto del Carmen, the Blue Delfin is a very popular maritime excursion. The giant catamaran has 32 submarine windows, with plenty of opportunity to view the local marine wildlife close up. There are different tours on offer but the most popular is a day long excursion to the nearby islands of Fuerteventura and Los Lobos. Cost is about €45 for adults and €25 for children. Food and drink is included in the price. A variety of shorter excursions are available as well as a dolphin and whale watching cruise. For more information visit www.bluedelfin.com
For something a bit "wild", why not spend an evening at Rancho Texas Park near Puerto del Carmen (just a short bus trip away). Visit www.ranchotexaslanzarote.com for further details.
The best way to explore the island is by hiring a car and taking a few days to visit the areas of interest mentioned above.
Whatever you do on holiday, whether it is relaxing by the pool or exploring the island, have fun!
Costa Teguise is situated on the coast, in the central part of the island, and is one of Lanzarote's main tourist resorts. It is only a 20 minute drive from Arrecife Airport and is a convenient place from which to explore the island.
The island’s historic capital of Teguise is a 10 to 15 minute drive away, where a weekly market takes place every Sunday. When you are tired of bartering with the traders, you can visit many of the small cafes and bars within the market area for refreshments. Don't just visit the stalls - have a wander into the many "nook and cranny" shops (many of which are open daily) where you will find some crafts/unusual gifts/jewellery etc.
Weather in this part of the island is good all year round with the beaches generally windier than those in other resorts. It is therefore an ideal location for windsurfers and in the summer months, the constant breeze is very welcoming in the intense Lanzarote sun.
For those interested in windsurfing there are windsurfing schools, shops and equipment rental companies situated around the beach at Las Cucharas (only a short walk from Sands Beach Resort). Most levels of experience are catered for - from the novice to award-winning surfers.
Cycling and running are also quite widely enjoyed for the more energetic amongst you (bicycles available on hire).
There is no shortage of shops with plenty of jewellers, perfumeries, surf shops, leather goods shops, discount electrical stores and general gift shops, with most budgets and tastes being catered for.
Costa Teguise nightlife is lively but not rowdy - plenty of nighclubs and bars with varying entertainment on offer.
There is a good selection of bars - British, Irish and local style - in the resort.
Eating out is a pleasure in Costa Teguise as most tastes are catered for, from Chinese, Cantonese, Indian and International cuisine. Restaurants are open until late.
For those of you interested in golf, Costa Teguise has the island's only 18-hole golf course (just a 5 minute drive from Sands Beach Resort).
As an alternative to taking it easy by the pool at why not visit the island's only Aqua Park for a fun day out (but bring plenty of suncream!). The Aqua Park is a five minute drive, just a short distance from the golf course mentioned above.
For kids of all ages, the Centro de Ocia in Costa Teguise (recently opened) is a Leisure Centre for children of all ages with activities such as bowling, table football, soft play area, bouncy castle, playground etc. Please visit www.lanzaroteinformation.com for opening times etc. Centro de Ocia is situated behind the Netto supermarket, opposite Las Coronas. Obviously outdoor activities are the main focus on holiday but this could be something your children may enjoy for a few hours - when the novelty of the swimming pool wears off ...
The resort has good public transport with buses and taxis being readily available. To get the most from your holiday, however, visit the many attractions which are further afield by hiring a car.
Costa Teguise is suitable for couples, families, golfers and windsufers/water sport enthusiasts.
