Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 12
For us a villa in the sun had to have the perfect west facing aspect for sunset family dinners on the terrace. It needed to be close enough to fantastic restaurants & local amenities (like mains electricity, internet, supermarket, pharmacy, kids playpark etc), rural enough for open views & tranquility, & as close as possible to the surf. Plus it needed thoughtful safety & entertainment for young children to ensure parents can relax. We'd been renting villas for years in the Canaries & had not found the perfect house so in 2012 built our own. It's full of unique features like the 12 x 7m sports pitch with 6 hole putting green & rare features like the electrically heated pool to ensure warmth even in the winter. Two master bedrooms have super kingsize beds, every mattress & all linen in the villa is the finest quality to ensure the perfect nights sleep.
It's an incredible villa equally suitable for couples, groups or families to visit:
For adults it's the perfect house to relax with unique Lajares village, mountain, sunset & sea views. Or venture into the surf or bike trails before crashing out on the highest quality beds.
For parents, the kids entertainment & safety features have been thoughtfully considered to ensure you can take that well earned rest. Features include: including: Gates to hinder toddler access to pool area. Non-slip tiles. Pool in clear view from kitchen & lounge. NO bedrooms opening onto pool. All doors & windows lockable. NO glass tables or sharp table corners, NO cactus, NO gas. Extremely quiet road with 2 sets of high gates between road & house. Water & septic tanks fenced off (vital!).
Plus- baby monitor, high chair, acrylic glassware, stair gate, bed guards, optional padded floor for bunks, mosquito nets & black-out blinds on all bedroom windows, steel shutters on Ocean room windows, kids table & chairs, smoke alarms & fire extinguisher.
We hope you can enjoy it too.
You should have a rental car in Fuerte OR use our Toyota Rav4 car which is included with your booking. Our car is for sole use of Villa Sonrisa guests and saves you loads of time and money on your holiday (average price of this mid size 4x4/ 5 door automatic/ climate control / all mod cons would be €400 per week!) But the best news is you don't have to queue for it- so you can maximise your time at the villa rather than the airport. On arrival, just jump in a taxi and on route to the villa collect the car, a short distance from the airport. No paperwork to sign, no queuing, no wandering around car parks- this is the fastest way to collect your car and the best price- please consider our offer. FYI some car hire companies can take two hours to arrange locally, especially the 'off airport' cars.

The Fuerteventura region
Sunny all year round, fantastic for kids and surfers.
Lajares is home to local Spanish and the cosmopolitan surfers who’ve made Fuerte their home. There are no ‘bucket and spade’ package tourists here, nor any hotels or apartment complexes. The atmosphere is very chilled out and international. The village has eight surf shops and businesses, nine cafes, bars and very good restaurants (the closest to our house is run by a Michelin 2 star chef!), a hardware store, pharmacy, a few boutique shops, art gallery, two art schools, camel farm, kids play park, active community area for performances and markets and a very well equipped supermarket. It’s regarded as the coolest village on the island.
It does not have late nightlife or discos, although some of the bars have live music and misbehaviour, & Corelejo is only 10 mins away if this is what you’re after.
Nearby are all sorts of activities including mountain biking, trekking, horse riding and endless watersports. Our villa has recommended places of interest for sports, exploring or relaxing in the welcome pack.
Baby sitting, occasional in house chef, daily maid service (by prior arrangement), art or language classes for kids or adults, surf schools- all of this can be arranged as optional extras.

"Beautifully designed villa with safety for children in mind."
We were the first guests at this villa and it certainly came up trumps. The villa is beautifully decorated in a quiet area overlooking Ljares but within easy walking distance to the town and restaurants. if you have young children this is the villa to hire, it has everything you need down to cups for babies. From the safety aspect, as grandparents we felt this to be one of the safest villas we have ever rented, the owners have thought of everything as they have children of their own. The pool was glorious and warm.....cant say that about any other villas we have been to. Ladies there is even flat irons at this villa for your hair. Go and enjoy it as I defy anyone to find fault with the place.

"Truly wonderful and relaxing experience, fantastic for families especially with young ones"
I think we were the second people to stay in the villa since it commenced rental . This really is truly a fantastic villa and location with every need catered for. It is modern, spacious, well planned, extremely comfortable and clean. One thing that stood out the most was the considerstion for safety, especially for those who would be staying with young children. The villa also rents out surfing/windsurfing equipment if required. It is situated in a quite part of the village looking out to the mountains and sea, it is an excellent base for those wanting to pursue watersports (surfing etc) it is very peaceful and about a 10-15min walk to the shops, bars and amenities, buses etc. The bus service from Lajares gives access to El Cotillo, Correlejo and Puerto Del Rosario. Within Lajares there is a good supermarket, bars and restaurants, I would recommend Canela Cafe for good food, drink, music and atmosphere.
The booking process and administartion was fantastic, likewise was the service and help from the housekeeper.
Would thoroughly recomend a stay here for a relaxing time.
