The Lanzarote region
The Lanzarote region
Lanzarote is the most easterly of the seven major Canary Islands and lies in the Atlantic Ocean some 60 miles from the coast of Africa.The island enjoys an average temperature of 24ºC all year-round due to its advantageous location.
Whilst there is lots to do in Playa Blanca, sightseers and shoppers may wish to discover what other delights Lanzarote has to offer. There is a regular bus service that travels between Playa Blanca, Puerto del Carmen (the Biosfera) and Arrecife, the capital of Lanzarote and many agencies offer excursions throughout the island.
If you want to travel there are the most amazing places to see, from the green lagoons of El Golfo to the Timanfaya National Park, a Martian landscape bearing the scars of the volcanic eruptions that started in 1730 and lasted for more than 2000 days!
Travelling up the eastern coast are the fishing villages of Punta Mujeres, Arrieta and Orzola plus the attractions of Jameos del Agua and La Cueva de Los Verdes, amazing structures formed from the cooling lava flows creating caves and tunnels. Heading north over the mountains there is the Mirador del Rio, the highest point on Lanzarote with a viewing platform from which to enjoy stunning views to the neighbouring island of La Graciosa.
Visit Famara beach for excellent surf and watch or participate in the thrills and spills. A short drive from here down through Haria, known as the Valley of a Thousand Palms, on to the village San Bartolome. Here that you will find the Cesar Manrique Foundation, a tribute to the late local artist who influenced much of the architecture and strict building controls on the Island.
The Playa Blanca / Marina Rubicon area
Playa Blanca (meaning "White Beach") is the most southerly resort on the island of Lanzarote.Originally a small fishing village it is fast becoming the island's finest tourist area. Surrounded by numerous golden beaches and azure seas, and enjoying almost year round sunshine this really is the place to enjoy a family holiday.
The main shopping area in the centre of town is one third pedestrianised Running parallel to it is the sea-front pathway running the full length of the resort .Wheelchair friendly it is a walkers/joggers paradise. A relatively new tourist destination, Playa Blanca has developed based upon the best ideas of others. Whilst there are places to eat, drink and dance until the early hours, there are no mega-nightclubs with hundreds of people pouring on to the streets at closing time; there are plenty of these 25 miles away in the resort of Puerto del Carmen.
The villa is situated in a complex of 48 properties sharing a large pool with sun terraces. Close by is the exclusive 5* Gran Melia Volcan hotel and the luxurious Marina Rubicon where designer boutiques and eateries overlook the berthed yachts. Here you can also access bowling, tennis, diving facilities and fishing or sailing excursions.
15 minutes to the east are the famous unspoilt golden sands of the Papagayo beaches, a 20 minutes walk along the walkway to the west is the Playa Dorada beach with pedalos, banana boats and beachside cafes. In Playa Blanca life revolves around the beaches during the day with nights enjoying fine food at one of many international restaurants set on the sea front.
From the harbour at Playa Blanca, ferries cross several times a day to Fuerteventura. It is possible to go to the island as a foot passenger or with a car and the 45-minute crossing is good fun in itself as you sit on the open-air terrace and enjoy the ocean views.

We rented this place for the last week in January, was great. 3 good sized bedrooms, 2 lovely bathrooms and a very well equiped kitchen. Well positioned - walking distance from many shops restaurants and activities.
My only slight complaint would be the lack of stations on the TV and WIFI would have been handy.
Thank you for your review and very pleased that you enjoyed your stay at the house. Unfortunately you went just as they moved the satellite position for recieving Uk channels. As soon as we discovered this we had the engineer in to retune and we have also added a second dish enabling us to receive even more channels. Local hotels and bars/cafes have a free wifi service which is how we usually stay in touch on our visits.

We had a great 2 week holiday in Casa Aguilera. Fantastic location and the villa was very spacious, modern and clean. Having 2 balconies upstairs meant that you had lovely views of the sea and walkway at one side and pool views from the other, which our two teenage children made the most of! The pool area was very peaceful and lovely to cool off from the hot sun. It is about a 3 minute walk to the front and approx 10 mins walk to the Marina Rubicon where there are plenty of lovely restaurants to choose from. The promenade stretches for miles and a leisurely 20-25 min walk, takes you to the centre of Playa Blanca. We travelled as a family of four and the whole process was very smooth from booking to arrival, with lots of helpful advice from Joanne, would recommend to anyone and we would definately stay again when we go to Lanzarote.

We were new to Lanzarote, but found Playa Blanca to be the perfect place for a relaxing but fun holiday. I dealt with the owners via email, they always responded within a few hours and were very helpful. We were given very easy to follow instructions to find and get access to the appartment. The appartment is in 'Residential Laura' which is 60 appartments surrounding a central pool, approx 15m x 5m and 1 - 1.7m deep which was great for adults and children of all ages. The area around the pool was lovely and the appartment has four sun loungers for use around the pool. There are quite a few unoccupied appartments, which meant that for our stay we only shared the pool with a few other families, so it was never crowded or over loud.
The appartment itself is very spacious and was spotlessly clean on our arrival. We found everything we needed and the beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. The kids loved the huge flat screen TV and Sky/DVD player. We loved the balconies and outdoor covered seating/dining area. The two shower rooms were both very nice with a good powerful shower. The provision of towels and beach/pool towels was a really nice touch.
The appartment is set just off a paved coastal walkway between Papagayo and Playa Blanca and this was perfect for a stroll at any time of day or night. Towards Playa Blanca we were within reach or a good choice of restaurants etc at the very pretty Marina Rubicon within 5 minutes (we really enjoyed 'Petite Marmite') and there is a stony beach at the foot of cliffs betwwen the appartment and 'Eagle Tower' which is brilliant for snorkelling within 2 minutes (although access is via a steep rocky path for this one so only for the fit/adventurous). There are several nearby Supermarkets, the nearest being a Hiperdino to the East of the appartment approx 4-5 mins brisk walk (road layout means it's about the same time to drive) there is also a supermarket in the rubicon shopping centre (the quickest to get to by car - 2 mins) and another small hiperdino in the marina area. A bit further afield is Roper's which was a fabulous shop for fresh meat, fish and veg etc. There are large 'EuroSpar' hypermarkets at Arrecife and Costa Teguise too.
The beaches at Papagayo are 10 mins drive away (cost 3 Euros to access/park) but are fabulous, as is the beach at Paya Blanca where there are sunbeds and banana boats/jetskis/pedalos etc to hire. There were very few hair braiders and sunglass sellers at Playa Blanca, which was nice (but go to Costa Teguise if you want to find some) and the restaurants were all very welcoming but didn't have persistent 'hookers'.
We absolutely loved the whole of the Papgayo/Playa Blanca area, it's very clean and classy and with lots to do and see wherever we went. The appartment is first class and I wouldn't hesitate to reccommed it to anybody.
We travelled with family who rented another appartment in the complex (equally good) I would reccommend dojng the same for an extended family holiday.
