The Lanzarote region
Lanzarote is the most easterly of the seven major Canary Islands and lies in the Atlantic Ocean only some 100 km (60 miles) from the coast of Africa and 1,000 km from the Iberian Peninsula. The island enjoys an average temperature of 22C all year-round due to its advantageous location in the Tropic of Cancer.
Fishing and agriculture once formed the basis of the islands economy but have since been overtaken by the excellent quality of its tourism industry.
Great care has been taken in preserving its historical and artistic heritage, its monuments and characteristic houses, local festivals and customs... in short, the full expression of its culture and folklore.
Lanzarote is made up of seven municipalities: Arrecife (the capital), Teguise, Hara, San Bartolome, Tias, Tinajo and Yaiza, with an official population of nearly 125.000 inhabitants, mostly residing in the south-central part of the island.
Lanzarote is the most easterly of the 7 major Canary Islands. Its arid, volcanic landscape and its amazing sea cliffs create a unique and dramatic scenery.
Lanzarote has a wide and varied number of beaches along its coast - fine white or dark sand, calm waters with large swells. But there is much more to Lanzarote than just the coastline, there is so much to do and see and you should not miss some of the many delights nestled like jewels across the island.
The Spanish in general love to party and the Canaries are no exception! Lanzarote's liveliest nightlife takes place in the capital, Arrecife and in the two main resorts of Puerto del Carmen (villa is located a few mins from the Old Town) and Costa Teguise is a short drive away.
Puerto del Carmen
Puerto Del Carmen is the most popular tourist destination in Lanzarote. It offers three different areas, these are the Matagorda, Old Town and New Town which is called Avenida de Las Playas (or better known as the Strip).
These 3 areas are very much different to each other but all offer a good amount of bars and restaurants and of course shopping.
Matagorda is closest to the Airport, like the other 2 areas Matagorda has a large amount of bars and restaurants to choose from including it's own centre with a very good selection of restaurants. The beaches in Matagorda are golden and very long but it can get very windy. Matagorda is also the flattest part of Puerto Del Carmen.
The Old Town which is only a short walk away, is charming and has managed to keep the look and feel of a old Spanish village. The area is filled with many different bars and Restaurants located over the Old Town, many of which are hidden away and are difficult to find. The Old Town is a few minutes walk from the Villa. No need to use a car at all.
The 'Strip' (New Town) as it's more commonly known is around 6km long with an almost unlimited supply of bars, shops and restaurants for you to choose from. Puerto Del Carmen also offers an impressive shopping centre called the Biosfera which offers 4 floors of shops and bars (with a kids play area to keep them happy). You can also walk to the Strip from the villa, but depending how far along you jaunt, you may well take a taxi (which are cheap and plentiful) home.
Puerto Del Carmen is the most popular tourist destination in Lanzarote, situated to the south of Lanzarote. It is attractive for many people because of the long sandy beaches, number of activities available and excellent selection of bars and restaurants. Puerto Del Carmen has a lot to offer all year round due to the warm climate of Lanzarote. Puerto Del Carmen started life as a fishing village and its picturesque harbour at the southern end of the resort is still very much in action, a lovely place to unwind over a drink and watch the fishing boats come and go. If you wander into the square nearby you will see the locals playing boules.
Puerto Del Carmen is the ideal holiday resort for the sun worshipper, with the beautiful Playa Grande beach, as for the night owl who loves dancing and eating and drinking, or the culture vulture. Suitable for couples and families Puerto Del Carmen has something to offer everyone with a wide selection of shops and shopping centres, entertainment halls, restaurants and bars.
FESTIVALS IN LANZAROTE
Spain and the Canary Islands are famous for there festivals (fiestas) and Lanzarote is no exception!! In Lanzarote throughout the year the island has many carnivals and fiestas, below I have listed a few of the more popular ones and generally larger one's that happen! Many fiestas, festivals and carnivals are held in the in or close to the main resorts and towns of the island, so if you are on holiday in Lanzarote whilst a fiesta is taking place, the you should go along and have a look and for the more daring participate, which can do by taking part in the fancy dress and partying alongside it all - it is a brilliant day and night out, with which most do party well into the early hours and some don't even stop for two days - so be prepared!
On January 6th is the Dia de los Reyes - Three Holy Kings Day, The Three Holy Kings are celebrated all over the island, and the rest of Spain and the Canary Island. In Lanzarote the eve of Epiphany is marked by a street parade, during which the Three Wise Men distribute Christmas gifts to the children of the towns.
Carnival is celebrated at the beginning of Lent and begins with a parade on carnival eve in Arrecife. It's usually a four day event, with concerts, all night dancing and the procession of floats along the seafront. This is the Canary Islands most popular festival that time of year, with the longest tradition and is celebrated all over all the islands in the Archipelago of the Canaries. Apart from the inhabitants of the island, thousands of tourists are attracted by the fun and colours of the carnival celebrations too. Much of the spectacle of the carnival revolves around the Carnival Queen, who is elected in a grand gala that is held on a night that is considered one of the high points of the carnival. The funfairs are great for the kids but they do not normally get going until about 7pm. After the parade which tends to end at the open air party that has bands and musical tributes, the fun fair is here also and all the bars and restaurants normally have a stall down there too! This party doesn't normally get going until midnight and keeps going generally until the very early hours, literally 6-8am, so I would advise if you are thinking of partying hard with the locals then to join them in their tradition of a siesta!
Corpus Christi - mid-June, a Catholic event, where many streets are decorated with coloured salt and occasionally flowers, leading up to the San Ginés Church in Arrecife.
San Juan (St. John's Day) - late June, celebrating the rich history and heritage of Lanzarote and marking the Summer Solstice, with parties around the island. Festival highlights include outdoor concerts and dancing, traditional rituals, sporting competitions, and at night time, numerous fireworks displays and bonfires, particularly along the coastline and in northern Lanzarote, with people jumping high over the flames.
San Marcial of Femes -1st week in July
San Marcial is the patron saint of Lanzarote.
Our Lady of Carmen - August 1-11th
The patron saint of fishermen. In the ports there is a maritime procession of fishing boats.
San Gines - 3rd week in August
The patron saint of Arrecife. A ten day celebration with a large fairground & fireworks on the last Saturday night.
The Virgen of Dolores -15th September
The Virgen of the volcanoes. Thousands of people dressed in local costume, from all over the island walk to visit the shrine. Lasts several days and includes a craft fair and folk festival.
There are many more fiestas that happen during the year throughout Lanzarote, If you are lucky enough to be on holiday when one is taking place then I would highly recommend going along to watch and participate!
The annual Marathon in Lanzarote will take place in Arrecife, the capital of the island; this is the only Marathon event in the Canary Islands and it is celebrating its 20th anniversary welcoming runners of all age groups from all over the world. On the course in front of the beach you will experience the charm of the city, with its new and old buildings where locals have lived in close contact with the sea for centuries.
Official Race Website: http://www.lanzarotemarathon.com/IndexUK.htm
Lanzarote Iron Man
Lanzarote Iron Man or to give it its full title (Lanzarote Ironman Canarias Triathlon) is the ultimate challenge for all athletes.
The Lanzarote Ironman. Just those three words are enough to get you respect among any group of athletes. It's tough, it's relentless, it's unpredictable. It's as near to the pure Ironman ethos as you'll find anywhere in the world. It's a race that takes favourites and shatters their dreams in an instant -- or, rather, somewhere around nine hours...
About the Race
The motto says it all. "Normal limits do not apply."
It's hard to say what makes the Ironman Lanzarote course so tough. There's heat, high winds, and a challenging bike course that winds its way up and down two mountains.
A swim is a swim, and the 2-loop ocean swim is a great way to start the long day.
The bike course is where things get really tough for the roughly 700 competitors. By the time all is said and done, they will have climbed more than 2,600 metres (that's 9,000 feet!).
Oh, lest we forget, there is still the run. The out-and-back run course is relatively flat. What makes it so tough are the winds, and the heat ... and the fact that it's a marathon.
The success and popularity of this race is positive for the whole island of Lanzarote, as it brings many people to the island both for racing and training. More info can be found here - http://www.ironmanlanzarote.com/IndexUK.htm
Our villa is ideally placed for easy access to this very popular event. So whether participating, contemplating or just viewing interest in the property will be keen so please book early.
BEACH HOLIDAYS IN PUERTO DEL CARMEN
Puerto Del Carmen holidays are a well-established Lanzarote favourite, popular with those looking for a Lanzarote resort with plenty of entertainment, good facilities, long sandy beaches and a wonderful all-year-round climate. The undoubted highlights of holidays in Puerto Del Carmen are its golden sandy beaches. Puerto Del Carmen beach is a long broad curved stretch of gently shelving golden sand with clean calm water ideal for swimming and windsurfing, making Puerto Del Carmen holidays particularly popular with families. Puerto Del Carmen holidays can easily sample the quieter atmosphere at Matagordos beach and Playa de Porcillos beach, two resorts that effectively form a continuation of Puerto Del Carmen beach.
Puerto Del Carmen is popular with families as the resort offers a broad range of entertainment and activities. for example watersports with excellent diving and windsurfing instruction, cycling, tennis, squash, fishing, horse riding, and plenty of shopping. Children on holiday in Puerto del Carmen will enjoy the local Rancho Texas theme park, the water park, feeding the fish in the lovely marina at Puerto Calero. They may also enjoy a visit to the lovely nearby village of Tias with its typical Canarian bars and restaurants. Puerto Del Carmen holidays are well placed for exploring the island of Lanzarote with its extraordinary volcanic landscapes. Popular excursions include visits to the volcanoes, the Cuerva de los Verdes, the lagoon at El Golfo, pretty inland villages like Yaiza, camel rides, boat trips to remoter beaches, a shopping trip to Arrecife or even a day trip to the island of Fuerteventura.
PLAYTIME FOR THE GROWN UPS TOO
Holidays tend to focus on the lively seafront promenade, known as 'the strip' with its ample selection of shops, cafes and restaurants with sea views. Puerto Del Carmen holidays also centre on the picturesque harbour (the old town), a great location for excellent tapas bars and more authentic fish restaurants. Holidays offer plenty of nightlife, with no shortage of bars and discos along 'the strip' offering something for most tastes along with family entertainment, karaoke, cocktail bars and a casino. While Puerto Del Carmen holidays certainly offer the liveliest nightlife on Lanzarote it is well short of being excessively wild. If you are lucky your holidays will coincide with one of the towns entertaining fiestas or carnivals. (See above).

"Lovely Villa - Lovely Holiday"
Great communication from Rebecca before our stay and Villas Lanzarote (Louise and Tony) were really helpful whilst we were there.Our main reason for choosing this villa was so our Son could gain confi… More

"home away from home"
I stayed for 1 week with my friend (39) her mum (72) and little boy (4)
we wish we had stayed longer, the villa had absolutely everything you would have at home apart from wifi, but no harm in that either!!
kitchen had all you need, just stock up the large fridge/freezer, and you could actually quite happily stay in for the week!!
the villa is only a short walk from the old town, the walk back up is a very steep hill so not suitable for elderly, disabled or young kids. taxis are cheap and don't mind short fares, we often got taxi back from supermarket which was only a 5 min walk, the super market is so well stock you will always end up getting more than planned!!!
the lounge has large flat screen tv with sky channels, kids and music channels too which was great if the little one wanted a break from sun. there is also a music system if you prefer your own taste in music, a large selection of books are also provided which is great if you run out. I left my own books so handy for suitcase weight restrictions!!
beds are clean and comfy, villa would comfortably sleep 6 adults, the area is quite so no problem getting a good night sleep!
the pool was cleaned once in the week and the agent popped round to see if we had everything we needed.
the tiles around pool get very slippy when wet so be careful with kids running round.
lots of outside space, loungers and table/chairs.
Taxi to/from airport approx. 20euro each way.
the only fault I can find is the booking, I had to do a bank transfer which is a little inconvenient, payment by credit/debit card would be much easier.
will definitely book again next year and for longer!!

"beautifully kept and well managed"
We travel to Lanzarote twice/3 times every year and this was one of the best kept villas we have stayed in and will be booking again. It was so clean. The bed in the master bedroom, including en-suite and dressing room, was the biggest and most comfortable I have ever slept in on holiday. The bedrooms had such clean beds and everything matches, it's just beautiful. The fridge stopped working while there, these things happen but it's how they're dealt with. Louise, the manager, brought round a spare until a new fridge was delivered. I felt safe in the pool as it sloped gradually and wasn't too deep. That also was spotless.
We had a wonderful holiday and our deposit was returned by Rebecca immediately.
We're going back!!!

"Fabulous villa, excellent value for money"
We stayed at Casa de Esperanza for a week in January. It was our first time in Lanzarote after several trips to Tenerife so we were hoping that a change wasn't a mistake - it wasn't! Booking was very straightforward and before we left the UK we received plenty of helpful information about getting to the villa including helpful tips for taxi drivers. Our arrival although quite late was very easy. If you have young kids and are going arrive late the welcome pack is definitely a good idea.
The villa is fantastic. It was beautifully clean and a lot larger than we had envisaged. The kitchen is well equipped and the bedrooms all furnished to a very high standard - loved the soft furnishings. The master suite is particularly good for those with older/grown up kids as you have the option of shutting the door and maintaining privacy for both parties. The wet room shower is brilliant and great for anyone with limited mobility. Kids will love it - even soap-dodging teenagers.
The TV is huge with a good range of channels - no BBC or ITV channels so sky plus the soaps before you go. There is also the novelty of an open air utility room where clothes dry happily away from the strong breezes that the island gets. The pool was very clean and was well maintained throughout our stay. It is the warmest pool I have come across - just like getting into the bath.
The villa is situated in a very quiet part of town which was just what we were after as our days of partying till the wee hours are well and truly over. It is a short walk (downhill) to the shops, bars and restaurants. If you have mobility problems you may want to take a taxi if you want to get all the way down to (or come back from) the bars round the marina. The taxis are plentiful and cheap - we saw many senior visitors take this option although my dodgy knees held out with the walk every day. The nearby SuperDino supermarket was well stocked and reasonably priced whether you want to go native or stick with Brit favourites. All the restaurants we visited were great value for money - our favourite was El Burro which does great Tex Mex and the staff were lovely.
Louise looked after us brilliantly and was really helpful with our late departure including booking a taxi to take us to the airport.
We had a wonderful relaxing holiday here and would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for the same in a lovely villa. It is great value for money and we have our deposit back before the tan has faded. I have recommended it to a number of friends and will continue to do so.

"Out of this world."
We immensely enjoyed our stay at this villa.It had everything we could ask for and more.The service was fantastic with the owner coming to see us on the second day to check if everything was OK. The pool was heated to a perfect temperature. The villa was close to all amenities .Top class villa and I will be recommending it to all of my friends and family.
