The Lanzarote region
Lanzarote is the most popular all year-round villa holiday destination in the Canary Islands. Only 100 kilometres from the coast of Africa, Lanzarote has a year-round warm climate and a wonderful selection of extraordinary private holiday villas. Less than four hours flying time from most European cities, Lanzarote offers superb beaches, facilities and lots of activities for the entire family. Lanzarote has been designated a World Biosphere Reserve for its miles of glorious beaches and its dramatic, fascinating scenery created by its volcanic past.
Throughout the island, overlooking beaches, in villages and resorts there is an excellent variety of local and international cuisine, much specialising in its wealth of local fish. The island’s small size and reasonable roads, coupled with inexpensive car hire, makes self-drive an attractive option giving visitors complete freedom to tour the island at their leisure. Two sophisticated world class marinas attract the international yachting fraternity and offer superb sea excursions, game fishing and boat charters. Geographically part of North Africa, but benefiting from the cooling effect of the surrounding Atlantic and culturally as well as politically part of Spain, Lanzarote is an established, favourite, year round villa holiday destination, with many families returning year after year and through the generations
Puerto del Carmen
The villa is located in a cluster of farmhouses in Macher. It is a typical Canarian village which is spread over a considerable area and is the perfect setting for guests wanting to be away from the hustle and bustle, but only a five minute drive from Puerto del Carmen. There are several restaurants and small, local bars dotted around the village and also a large local supermarket that is within walking distance. A car is essential in Macher as many of the roads don’t have pathways to walk on.
Macher is an excellent location from which to explore the island. Within a ten minute drive is the beautiful marina of Puerto Calero. This is an excellent place to watch the luxury yachts and boats come and go whilst enjoying a drink or food in one of the many bars or restaurants. The old harbour of Puerto del Carmen is also a 10 minute drive away and has an excellent selection of places to eat. Both the old harbour and Puerto Calero are starting points for many excursions including a glass bottom boat, submarine, catamaran, sea fishing and a ferry to Fuerteventura. Only 15 minute drive from the villa is Playa Quemada, a traditional Canarian fishing village which has remained untouched by tourism. Literally translated, Playa Quemada means ‘burnt beach’ and gets its name from the village’s black volcanic beach.
The wine growing region is virtually on your doorstep and there are many bodegas where guests can sample the local produce. The closest beach is a 10 minute drive away along with the closest large supermarket and the airport is 15 minutes by car.
