About this location
The Canary Islands region
The semi-desert Island of Fuerteventura lies just under 100km off the coast of Africa (near the border of Morocco and Western Sahara). It enjoys a near-perfect climate with average monthly temperatures ranging from 17°C in January to 35°C in August.
Fuerteventura is the longest Island in the archipelago at 98km north to south and the second-largest Canary Island after Tenerife. The unforgiving barren and arid interior of the island shares much with it's African neighbours of Morroco and the Western Sahara including sparse rainfall, rocky-desert landscapes (the temperature of these rocks can reach 67°C on a hot day!) and simple flat-roofed white-washed villages.
Fuerteventura is perhaps most famous for it's beaches, with over 50km of stunning white and golden sand. Despite Tourism being a relatively recent phenomenon on the island, there is a well developed infrastructure with Golf Courses, a Zoo, a Water Park and numerous Marine Excursions. If you fancy something a bit more active, the Island offers great Surfing, Windsurfing and Kite Surfing as well as Big Game Fishing and Diving.
If you just want to take it easy, then those miles of white sandy beaches make the perfect getaway, even in peak season you should be able to find a relatively secluded spot for yourself.
In short, there is plenty for Families, Twenty-somethings and Sports enthusiastes alike.
Often described as “Picturesque and Unspoilt”.
Besides being a fishing village, El Cotillo also developed as a Surf town with the Beaches and Reefs to the north and south of the town attracting Windsurfers/Kite-boarders and Surfers from all over the world. The reefs shelter the small lagoons at the northern end of the town making them safe places to bathe. Surfers are very much part of the laid-back character of the town, with several hippy-style or hippy-renovated houses in evidence.
El Cotillo was the capital of the original Maxorata Kings (natives of this part of the island) before the conquest, however with the exception of the Fortaleza del Tostón, there is not much in the way of historic Buildings or archaeological remains here. The Fortaleza del Tostón is a fortified tower built by the Spanish in 1797 to defend the area from Pirates and can be found just south of the Harbour. The small church is dedicated to the Virgen del Buen Viaje.
Like many towns in the Canary Islands, this was originally (and still is) a Fishing Village. You can still see old fishermen land their catch in the old harbour after negotiating the perilous-looking entrance to the harbour!
There are a few pleasant fish restaurants overlooking this pretty little harbour – a natural harbour which is now reinforced with a concrete sea wall.
Nightlife in El Cotillo is generally very low-key (there are a few bars) with the exception of events such as local Fiestas and the occasional Music Festival!

"home from home"
We have stayed in numerous apartments in El Cotillo but these apartments exceeded all expectations. We know the village well, but those who don't these apartments couldn't be better situated for the supermarket, restaurants and beaches.
Sandy greeted us on arrival and had provided us with the essentials and a bottle of wine to start our stay off in style. The apartment was spotless and well equipped. Sandy had thought of everything even down to providing a pair rubber gloves.
We loved our stay here and will be back April.
Thank you for your review and we look forward to welcoming you back anytime.
We endeavour to meet the requirements of our clients whether they are regulars or new guests. A good apartment means a happy holiday.

"A great appartment in a quiet place."
We've just had a great week in El Cortillo. Fantastic apartment it had everything we needed and more, plus a welcome pack.
The village is quiet which we like, good restaurants and bars but if you want something livelier is not far from Corralejo by bus or if you hire a car.

The apartment is lovely, just like having your own home. The owners were lovely and were there to greet us upon our arrival. Sandy and her husband have thought of everything in the apartment: beer ready in the fridge :-) childrens games, beach gear, cool bag. You name it it's there for you. All rooms are tastefully decorated, lovely comfy beds and lovely patio area to relax in the sunshine. Thank-you Sandy!

"Lovely apartment & a very relaxing holiday"
Just returned from a week in this apartment. It has everything you need & the owners Sandy & Andy are very friendly & flexible with times of arrival & departure. El Cotillo is so relaxing & laid back. We have already booked for next year. If you're looking for a completely relaxed holiday that is not too " touristy" then this is the place for you. The restaurants are excellent & it is so cheap to eat out. There is a supermarket just across the road the apartment is in an excellent location the bus stop is just down the road if you want to investigate the island but to be honest I don't think anywhere on the island is as nice as El Cotillo. Can't wait to return next year. Also very comfortable bed lovely soft pillows slept really well.

"this appartment has everything you need to make your stay comfortable and easy"
We found this appartment spotlessly clean and tidy. It was very close to useful local amenities,but at the same time nice and quiet. It was also within easy reach of wonderful and varied beaches and the appartment had ample information about a variety of visitor attractions on the island. The village had a wealth of friendly cafes/ restaurants and tapas bars and we were always able to find somewhere to suit everyone.
We very much enjoyed our stay and appreciated the thoughtfulness and kindness of the owners.
Thank you for the review and we are so glad you had a good holiday and that the apartment suited your needs.
