Description from owner
El Carmen is south facing, so all day sunshine is available on the private patio on sunny days, as well as sunrise and sunset views. It is well furnished throughout and has 3 comfortable beds plus a fold-up bed suitable for a child.
FREE WiFi with full-time private internet access is included in the price. Also UK TV (40 channels including all BBC and ITV) plus 7 day catch-up.
The sheltered patio has 2 sunloungers and a table and 4 chairs for al fresco dining. The warm evenings permit this all year round, and as the island is so dry - mosquitoes are few!
El Carmen is in a quiet location on the edge of the village of El Cotillo. As a result it has excellent uninterrupted views of the beautiful Fuerteventura mountainous volcanic landscapes. But its close to all the village facilities such as the many excellent restaurants. There are 2 within 2 minutes walk . Or you can self cater as the kitchen is completely equipped with everything you are likely to need.
Parking is available immediately in front of the apartment which is on the ground floor, so access is easy.
Ideal all year round holiday destination - escape from the winter chills of northern Europe.
Further details indoors
Light and airy lounge with kitchen/dining area at one end, leading onto sunny patio. LCD HD TV with DVDBluRay player and USB for connecting USB drives with music - plus Multi card reader to view photos from your camera.
The main bedroom has twin beds which can be pushed together to make a double (with double sheet/ blankets provided on request).
The second bedroom has a single bed plus a fold-up bed suitable for a child
Bathroom has shower only plus toilet, basin and washing machine.
Further details outdoors
The large front patio has walled sides for shelter and an aluminium fence with lockable gate for security (and kids safety). 2 sunloungers and a sunshade are also provided, as well as a full awning, plus table & 4 chairs. It looks out onto marvellous views of the mountains and the Toston Tower (historical monument). There is a large retractable Awning which can provide ample shade for the patio, and adds to your privacy.
There is a small rear outdoor yard (totally secure with high walls all round), which can be used for safe storage of bikes , surfboards or other sporting kit. It has a tap/hose which we use for rinsing surfboards and wetsuits, which can then be dried in a secure area, without cluttering the main patio.

“Hidden gem !”
Just returned from a week at this lovely apartment which was spotlessly clean, very well equipped and located in a great spot with superb views from the lovely terrace . The local beaches are superb and were never crowded during our stay . For a tiny village, the choice of restaurants and cafes is amazing - we loved The Whale restaurant opposite the monument - superb food and amazing views out to sea . Plenty of supermarkets and the beaches are a couple of minutes away by car or a reasonable 15-20 mins stroll. The key holders Ian & Jacqui were very helpful and the whole process of booking etc with the owners could not have gone smoother . Loved our relaxing week in the sunshine and would definitely recommend staying here! Many thanks
Owner's reply: Thank you for your excellent review! It reflected exactly why we bought a holiday home there ! Very pleased you enjoyed your holiday and hope to see you again soon.
