The Lanzarote region
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.
Amongst the many stunning Volcanic features of Lanzarote is the longest Volcanic Tunnel in the world, the Atlantida Tunnel, which is over 7 km long and includes the La Cueva de los Verdes and Jameos del Agua.
Despite the Volcanic nature of the island, Lanzarote has several beautiful white beaches such as at Playa Blanca and Papagayo, Casa Strutt is within walking distance of all these beaches.
Local authority regulations on the amount and style of development mean that there is no billboard advertising and no high rise buildings in Lanzarote.
There are many tourist attractions on the Island including;
-El Golfo, a circa 15 minute drive out of Playa Blanca. Good to visit, spectacular sea views and some good walks to see the green lake etc, there are some really good fish restaurants; worth a visit.
-Costa Calero a circa 15 minute drive out of Playa Blanca, this is a small yachting village, up market, good to visit, you can take a submarine trip from here or visit the sea life museum.
-Puerto Del Carmen is the nearest lively resort e.g. lots of clubs; Casinos etc and a long sandy beach, this is a circa 20 minute drive.
-Go for a Camel ride, a circa 15 minute drive out of Playa Blanca on the main road back towards the airport.
-The Timanaya mountains and the live (ish) volcano, a circa 15 minute drive out of Playa Blanca.
-The caverns of Jameos del Agua, an under ground lake.
-The Jardin de Cactus gardens at Gautiza, containing over 100,000 sun loving plant species.
-James del Agua - The Cesar Manrique Foundation (former home and now museum built in the volcanic rock),
this was Cesar Manrique’s home (the world famous artist) and is well worth a visit; it is built in to the volcanic rock and is truly unique.
It also has an entertainment complex built in to natural caves. The natural Auditorium has seating for 600 and is renowned for its excellent acoustics. There are regular shows put on here, which include Folklore Music (the traditional music of the Canary Islands), Audio-visual displays and a Disco on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
The underground salt water Lagoon, Jameo Chico, is host to a Species of Blind Albino Crab (Munidopsis Polimorpha) that are unique to this location.
-Miradores, spectacular views from a hidden mountain complex built by Cesar Manrique.
-The Cave of Los Verdes, the tunnel is over 6 km long with an additional 1.6 km under the sea and is the longest Volcanic Tunnel in the World (the underwater section has not been fully explored), although only about 2 km are open to the public. The cave measures more than 15 metres wide and 15 m high.
-The Museum of international contemporary art; the San Jose fortress in Arrecife.
-The Wine Museum of Lanzarote is located at the old cellars of the "El Grifo" winery, which were built over the volcanic lava left from the 18th century eruption. According to trust-worthy reports, they were built in the year 1775, making this the oldest winery in the Canaries. Since then, wine has been made here without interruption.
The local Marina Rubicon, is a short walk from the villa and has lots to do, including market days Wednesday and Saturday mornings; designer shops; lots of restaurants & bars; boat hire; sailing club, scuba diving, boat trips; tennis courts; bowling; mini golf; pool tables etc..

"The villa was amazing, Lanzarote/that area is a nice place to visit/stay!"
Me and a group of my girl mates rented this villa to start off my 25th birthday celebrations! and we loved it!
The villa was amazing,very modern, very clean, nicely layed out and the heated pool was gorgeous. The outdoor bbq was a good added bonus. It was nice to eat yummy bbq cooked food in the sunshine while sitting by the pool watching the sun set. The villa owners Carol and Dave were always to hand and were very helpful and quick to respond when needed :)
There is a supermarket open all day everyday opposite the villa which was very handy! :)
Lanzarote and that area in particular was a nice place to visit and stay. The marina (which has many shops,excursions shops and restaurants for you to sample) was a nice 10mins stroll away, via an amazing scenic view. Such a Gorgeous place to take pictures of! (definitely go on excursions - we went on a volcano and camel trip and i would definitely recommend it - it was a lot of fun)
There are plenty of local hire car shops available, however hiring a car is not essential. Cabs are regular and cheap - good service for local trips to/from the marina and to/from the airport - highly recommended!
I have recommended this villa to several families since i have been back (and i have only been back 4days!)
I would/will definitely be going back to this villa/area of Lanzarote again in the future :)
Many thanks again to Carol and Dave Strutt!

This guest stayed in the Villa in April 2012 and has only just posted a review, 16 months after they visited the Villa.
The downstairs double bed is a standard double bed (this is the first complaint received), however the master bedroom has a King Size bed.
Since April 2012 the sun loungers have been replaced.
