Villa Saskia - Peaceful Sun Terrace & Heated Pool
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. There is also a taxi rank at the nearby local supermarket.

The Canary Islands 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.

"Fantastic villa - great attention to detail, well equipped and in an excellent location."
This is the second time we have stayed at Villa Saskia and have loved it on both occasions. The villa is spotlessly clean, well equipped and obviously much cared for by its owners, George and Andrea. The outdoor seating area is a great place to enjoy a glass of wine in the evening before making the 20 minute stroll to the marina for dinner. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this villa and will no doubt be back again in the near future!

"Amazing , Relaxing, Home From Home"
Stayed at villa Saskia for 10 nights from the 9th june, with my wife ,2yr old daughter and parents. The booking process was very easy and George was very helpful suggesting restaurants for my fathers 70th birthday while we were here. The villa itself is very clean and has everything you need,including a good selection of books ,dvds and cd. The pool was lovely to cool off in the afternoon even though it was a nice temperature due to the solar cover, on Georges advice we didn't have the heating on. The villa is located in a quiet area about a twelve to fifteen minute walk ( with a toddler in a stroller) from the marina Rubicon. Taxis are very cheap, so we tended to jump in a taxi in the evening coming home or going to Playa Blanca old town. The Marina itself was relatively quiet during the evening probably due to the schools not being off. There are lots of restaurants around the marina we ate in several and had no complaints . Playa Blanca town is very nice in the evening with lots of restaurants to choose from, it was very busy here with lots of families and couples. Between the Rubicon marina and Playa Blanca town is a small selection of bars and restaurants which are very handy if having the day on the beach. Overall we had a lovely holiday and would recommend Villa Saskia for a nice relaxing holiday.

"Great location in Lanzarote"
We really enjoyed our holiday in Lanzarote. Villa Saskia is in a great location for exploring Lanzarote. Would recommend hiring a car and discovering the unusual landscape and small villages etc. away from the crowds. The villa is well designed and equipped and feels secluded. Private pool is a nice bonus. Thanks again Andrea and George for letting us stay in your lovely villa.

Thank you very much for choosing to stay at our villa and taking the time to give us your valuable feedback about your experience.
As it is always our main goal to provide the best level of service and facilities to our guests, we can understand your frustrations that we were not able to fully meet your expectations on this occasion; however, we are disappointed that we were not made aware of the water issue while you were at the villa, as we could have taken action to alleviate the impact of the issue during your stay. Please accept our sincere apologies for the inconvenience that this may have caused you.
With regard to the availability of Wi-Fi, air-conditioning and access to bedrooms. Our WebPages on both Holiday Lettings and Owners Direct give a very comprehensive overview of the Features and Facilities offered at the villa and neither of the first two items is mentioned. Our villa Community has for some time now been assessing the options for providing Wi-Fi and room fans are available for use in warmer weather. Also during the booking process, guests are given the opportunity to choose the rooms they wish to use during their stay.
I want to assure you that your comments have been taken seriously and constructively.
Look forward to having you at the villa in the near future.

"Great Villa, Great Holiday"
High quality villa in a great location within close proximity to the Marina. Playa Dorada beach is within a 5 minute drive and its an excellent sandy beach ideal for children. We would highly recommend this villa if you were thinking of a week or two in Playa Blanca.

"Another great stay at Villa Saskia"
This was our second visit to Villa Saskia. Same week, same place! Once again the Villa proved to be excellent accommodation. We made a suggestion to the Villa owners after our stay last year that they might consider a parasol for the terrace. The sun is very low in January and we burn easily. They did buy one and it improved our enjoyment of the sunshine no end. There is of course - a huge partially covered sun terrace which provides ample shade in the summer months. These are considerate and accommodating owners. Big thanks to them!
Once again the villa was clean, tidy and in a very quiet location. A great place to stay!

The villa is within easy reach of everything,the local supermarket is a five minute walk & for a better range of meats etc Ropers is a few minutes by car & easily walkable in 10-15 minutes.

All in all a great villa and we would highly recommend it ,George and Andrea were very helpful throughout the whole process and a big thank you goes to them for our experience.

En premier lieu les contacts en anglais avec les propriétaires ont toujours été très chaleureux. Toutes mes questions ont reçu des réponses rapides et efficaces.
Villa très confortable : très beau salon avec un home cinéma formidable et cuisine ouverte ce qui rend la préparation des repas et le rangement très sympa. 2 belles salles de bain et 2 terrasses très bien équipées avec du mobilier confortable et un barbecue à l'abris du vent.
L'endroit est très calme (la rue est sans issue).
Très facile de descendre à pieds à la Marina Rubicon pour les restaurants (+/- 15 minutes) et le supermarché est à 5 minutes à pieds et ouvert jusqu'à 22 h.
La dame qui s'occupe de la villa habite 3 maisons plus loin au cas où il y aurait un problème.
