The Canary Islands region
Lanzarote is situated just 79 miles off the coast of Africa and enjoys a mild dry climate with day time temperatures averaging between 21 degrees celsius in January and 28 degrees celsius in August. Annual rain fall is just 140 mm (5.5 inches) which makes Lanzarote the perfect all year round destination.
There are many places of interest which are well worth a visit including both Arrecife (the islands capital) and the Timanfaya national park. Arrecife is the islands main seaport and shopping centre. Arrecife has a picturesque hub, which is concentrated around El Charco; the main seafront promenades and parks also boast an interesting historical heritage.
The Timanfaya national park is a 20 minute drive from the Villa and was declared a national park in 1974. The Montanas del Fuego (Fire mountains) were created during 1730 and 1736 when more than 100 volcanos rose up and devastated this part of the island. The last eruption was in 1824. The area is a 'must' for any visitor to the island because of its unique 'martian' landscape and its rare plant species. Whilst it is not possible to roam around the park freely a coach trip is included in the price of entry. The El Diablo Restaurant, designed by Cesar Manrique provides an impressive backdrop, the food is cooked using geothermal heat (grilled over a barbecue using the natural heat from the volcano). You can also take a camel ride across the parkland and the Spanish national parks authority have recently launched two free guided walks along routes in the park.
Playa Blanca was once a small fishing village but has now been developed into Lanzarotes second most popular resort. Playa Blanca is a favourite with families and couples whereas those seeking an all-night party head for Puerto Del Carmen. The resort has a seafront promenade with many shops and restaurants. The resort is mainly low density comprising of bungalows and villas and a few large luxury hotels. The shopping area is pedestrianised and the taxi rank is located by this area with a taxi back to the villa costing only 3 euros.
A recent development in Playa Blanca is the exclusive Marina Rubicon with its many bars, restaurants and boutiques against a backdrop of boats and yachts. Here you can enjoy a leisurely drink at Vino Blanco or Cafe del Mar or dine at one of the many restaurants or tapas bars. There is something for everyone with Lanis and Little Italy being a favourite for families whereas both Casa Roja and Casa Brigida offer typical Canarian food.
Activities for children including a crazy golf course and bowling alley can also be found in this area with a pitch and putt course a further 5 minute walk at the Hotel Hesperia (Playa Dorada). 'Kikoland' is a children club and activity area next to the Playa Dorada beach, so If you want to lie in the sun and relax for a while leave the children here to be entertained. There is also a childrens play area in the 'Los Colorados' area near Ropers supermarket which is a pleasant 10 minute walk from the villa. A new water park opened in Summer 2012 and is situated near to the Hotel Timanfaya Palace.
There are many restaurants, bars and cafes in Playa Blanca and at the Marina Rubicon so all tastes and budgets are easily catered for. However, if you want to explore a little further afield and sample some real Canarian cuisine try visiting the small local villages such as Femes and Las Brenas.
There are several supermarkets in Playa Blanca and the surrounding area, with Hyperdino being a 5 minute walk in the direction of Papagayo from the villa.
Taxis are easily available and a regular bus service runs throughout the resort. Bike hire is also available from many of the car hire companies.
The Castillo de las Colorados is the most important historic building in Playa Blanca and can be seen from the villa. The tower is located just to the east of the Marina Rubicon and was built to defend the island from pirate attack.
The nearest beach is the Playa Dorada beach which is situated a 15-20 minute walk from the villa in front of the Princessa Yaiza hotel, both watersports and sunloungers are available here for a small cost. In the opposite direction you will find the beautiful unspoilt Papagayo beach reserve which can be accessed on car, via the water taxi or on foot.
A 15 minute drive takes you to Puerto Calero which is a must for the boat and yacht enthusiasts! Perfect for a leisurely lunch or the ideal place to book a fishing trip or a trip on the 'yellow submarine'.

"Lovely villa in a great location"
Just returned from our third visit to Bella Vista. Everything was still first class, well maintained and clean. The front line location is great, with the private garden and beautiful views. It is a short walk to the Marina and then a pleasant stroll on the seaside walk to town. We didn't hire a car and all amenities were accessible on foot. We had a lovely, relaxing time and will definitely be returning.

What a wonderful villa that was so tastefully decorated and so well maintained. It had all the facilities you could want for your holiday. It was cleaned on the second week with fresh linen and towels by the lovely Lisa who was extremely helpful. The rear garden faced the sea and was beautifully laid with a tiled patio and an artificial lawn bordered with shrubs. Plenty of garden tables and sun chairs and a place to shade when the sun was too hot.Whilst staying there we had a number of people enquire about the villa and how to rent it
It was ideally situated for the Marina Rubicon which was a leisurely stroll along the promenade.
We had a lovely time and have now booked again for next year.
Many thanks Catherine, for allowing us to rent your villa and we would have no hesitation recommending it to our friends and family.

"Lovely villa in Playa Blanca"
Just got back from a lovely visit to Playa Blanca and I am writing to say it was a pleasure to stay in such a lovely home, everything you needed for a wonderfull week away this villa had, from the very first e mail I sent to the owners to the day we had to go home was perfect,unfortunatly my mother in law took ill during our visit but in no way could this be retract from a wonderfull stay.
It was so lovely to wake up and have a drink on the balcony while looking out over the ocean,and to relax in the lovely garden, and so close to the Marina where there are so many nice places to eat or sit in the sun with a glass of wine, all in all a lovely holiday home and one in which I would have no problem in returning .

"Lovely home with lovely weather"
We stayed for 10 days and couldn't have asked for a better holiday - the house is a home from home, the pool was great and the views lovely.
The kids loved the home, so friendly, relaxing and were able to use the wifi, as all kids do, to catch up with friends and family.
The marina is only a few minutes walk, with town not far beyond....or a taxi with tired children.
After a hard year at work, I was sat in the pool for 45 min on my own, no one there, no wind, no music, just the sound of the water with the sun nicely shining down. And then I had to prep the lunch....lovely time away.

"The prettiest villa with the best location"
I travelled with my friend and our four teenage children..Everything was just right, the villa was beautifully equipped and decorated: The bedrooms were all perfectly comfortable and immaculately clean. There was, wonderful distribution of space both inside and out for our two families, making up six people. Everything was wonderfully clean, beautiful views over the sea and across to the Papagayo beaches which are a short walk away (partly uphill over rocks but very much worth it). The villa is located just next to the Puerto Marino not far from Playa Blanca, near shops and supermarkets and all amenities. A quiet setting which suited us, with charming neighbours who live on the island year round, I guess they wouldn't appreciate a noisy party, but very understanding of teenagers listening to a little music at reasonable volume while we had a couple of barbecues! Catherine (the owner) couldn't have been more helpful and obliging; even supplying clean sheets and towels (beach towels also provided) half way through our week and villa cleaned. We had an absolutely excellent holiday!

We had a fabulous stay at the Villa Bella Vista. The villa was spacious, beautifully appointed with every convenience, a real home-from-home experience. The communal areas of the complex were very well maintained, including the pool which we thought was very clean. The location was great, it is located in the Marina Rubicon area, which has a more sophisticated feel, however, the busy bars and restaurants of Playa Blanca town were only a twenty minute stroll along a promenade. We would very much recommend the villa and hope to return in the future.

"immaculate, quiet but well placed villa near Marina"
we travelled here with 3 children - 2 teenagers and 1 almost teenager. The villa had everything you need for a faulous holiday with top of the range appliances and lovely decor.
The pool was very windy and cold (as are most Lanzarote pools) and therefore pretty deserted most day. However the large patio was sheltered and ideal for relaxing into the evening.
Only a 10 minute stroll to the Marina and the same again to the beach. We personally prefer the old part of town but for anyone liking the modern Marina end this is ideal and Catherine the owner could not have been more helpful and accomodating.
