Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Villa Saskia is situated within the relatively new development of "Villas del Sur", a tranquil group of villas near to the Marina Rubicón complex, with its exceptional selection of upmarket waterfront restaurants, cafés, bars, shopping mall, designer shops, bowling alley and wide range of water sports and leisure activities.
The nearest well stocked local supermarket is only a two minute walk away from the villa and a little further; Playa Blanca's coastal promenade. The beaches at Playa Dorada and Papagayo, the Marina Rubicón and the old harbour area of Playa Blanca are all accessible from the coastal promenade. The El Pueblo shopping centre with its new supermarket, bars/cafés, gift shops and children's play area; only a few minutes walk away.
The villa has a south facing frontage, with a fully enclosed terrace overlooking its own private heated pool and benefits from being in the sun all day. Security and privacy are provided for with lava walls, teak and steel railings and gates. The terrace is partially covered, well stocked with plants and furnished with teak furniture and luxury cushions and offers shelter from the midday sun and the very occasional rain showers. The villa therefore offers ample space for enjoying the Lanzarote sun, alfresco dining or relaxing in the shade.
The property is on one level, open plan with a vaulted ceiling in the main living areas. The lounge area is tastefully furnished with leather sofas and comes complete with theatre sound system, flat screen television and for your entertainment, satellite television, a large selection of music and movies on disc, games and books.
The main amenities of Playa Blanca are all within walking distance of the villa. For those with reduced mobility or wishing to venture much further afield, there is a bus stop near the villa with a regular service along Playa Blanca's seafront and to the central bus station, where you can board buses leaving for the north of the island.

The Lanzarote region
The Island of Lanzarote is situated just 100km off the coast of Africa and is the most easterly of the Canary Islands and only 60km long and 20 km wide, making it the fourth largest of the Canary island.
Lanzarote has a mild dry climate with average temperatures throughout the year between 21 and 29 degrees and the normal water temperature of the Atlantic Ocean ranges between 19 degrees in winter and 23 degrees in summer and autumn. Annual rainfall is just 140mm (5.5 inches). This makes Lanzarote the perfect year-round destination for water sport or just relaxing in the sun by the pool.
The island of Lanzarote is the most unusual and surprising in the Canary Island archipelago. The island offers the visitor a wide variety of landscapes and attractions. Declared a Biosphere Reserve by the UNESCO in 1993, Lanzarote is made up of particularly beautiful landscapes.
A real must for the visitor are the art and culture centres, scattered all over the island. Mostly built by the famous Lanzarote artist, César Manrique, who was an expert in highlighting and conserving the charm and temperament of the island. They are a fascinating amalgamation of natural beauty and intelligent architecture.
Despite the volcanic nature of the island, Lanzarote has several beautiful golden sandy beaches such as Playa Blanca, Playa Dorada and the collection of beaches at Papagayo, all of which are near the villa.
The Marina Rubicón, is the main focal point of the area with its 400 boat moorings and exquisite restaurants and lively waterfront bars. Sign up for a fantastic trip on a catamaran, rent a kayak to explore the coast, relax beside the pool, or just, browse in the boutiques, shops and art gallery along the promenade around the harbour.
The area surrounding the villa also offers many more interesting things to do and places to visit.
* The coastal promenade starts near the villa at the El Pueblo shopping centre and runs for nearly 9 kilometres to the lighthouse on the south western tip of Lanzarote at Faro de Pechiguera and is perfect for fitness enthusiasts wanting to keep in shape or for the more relaxed holidaymaker, just having a pleasant stroll and enjoying the spectacular sea and mountain views.
* The area borders the Papagayo National Park with its coastal walks and world famous natural golden sandy beaches perfect for snorkelling or sunbathing.
* The Timanfaya National Park (Fire Mountain) is also close by, with its impressive volcanoes and lava fields.
* Playa Blanca old harbour is the ferry port to Fuerteventura. There are two companies providing service; Fred Olsen and Naviera Armas. If you are here in Playa Blanca for any length of time, a day trip to Fuerteventura and the town of Corralejo is highly recommended.
* Twice weekly craft market (Wednesday & Saturday 9 – 2pm) at the Marina creates a lively holiday atmosphere.
* Public Transport - Recently, a new (hop-on / hop–off) bus service was introduced that operates across Playa Blanca, linking Las Colorades in the east to Faro de Pechiguera in the west. The service operates twice every hour from Villas Del Sur.
