The Lanzarote region
As the northern most of the Canary Islands, Lanzarote lies approximately 70 miles from the west coast of Africa, and yet is only 4 hours flying time from the UK. It is ideal for either a short term break or a longer rest, and can offer year round sunshine, spectacular scenery and beautiful beaches. With its bustling capital - Arrecife - to the extraordinary lava fields at Timanfaya National Park, Lanzarote also offers a unique history and fascinating culture.
Lanzarote enjoys a mild dry climate with average daytime temperatures ranging from about 21°C in January to 29°C in August. Annual rainfall is just 140mm (5.5 inches). This makes Lanzarote the perfect year-round destination
The Playa Blanca / Marina Rubicon area
Playa Blanca lies at the south of the island and still retains the atmosphere of a once small fishing village. This flourishing resort is ideal for families and couples.
The nearby marina rubicon which opened in 2004 has an array of up-market shops, restaurants and bars which you can enjoy whilst taking in the lovely views. There is a shopping centre which has a bowling alley and supermarket. There is a local market there on wed and sat selling lovely locally made souvenirs.
The main resort of Playa Blanca is a 10 minute walk from the marina where you will find a wide range of shops, bars and restaurants as well as two sandy beaches. There are several excursions which depart from the port including a trip to the nearby island of Furteventura which is a 15 minute trip by catamaran and departs several times daily.

We stayed in Casa Roper for two weeks in april. Having used holiday lettings before this was the best accomodation we have stayed in and the best service we have received.
Firstly the owners Joanne and Kevin could not have been more helpful. The booking process was swift and efficient , and even though I had to make a few changes it was not a problem.Nice people !
The villa was excactly what had been described ,2 good size bedrooms, very well equipped from bedding to kitchen appliances.A lovely lounge which led out to the pool. The heated pool itself was lovely , plenty big enough to have a dip, and checked out often by the owners which is a good thing.
The villa is around 10 to 15 minutes walk to a gorgeous marina and another 10 to the centre of town and the beaches. If you prefer a taxi into town it was about 4 euros.
Also if you are eating in there is a good supermarket literally a minute away ,my wife enjoyed the ronaldo lookalike on the till !!!.
Thanks to kevin and joanne , for a great villa and making us feel very welcome.

First visit at this villa. Its in an ideal location,within walking distance to marina and playa blanca. The villa was very well equipped for all your needs, and very clean. We loved the peace and quiet. The villa is practically next to the supermarket which was brilliant. Joanne and Kevin who own the villa are really nice and very easy to contact if you need anything. The pool was cleaned once a week which is adaquate. The only thing missing was internet access. Defo going back have booked again for 2013.
