The Canary Islands region

The first tourist hotel was built in 1965 followed by the construction of Fuerteventura Airport at El Matorral, heralding the dawn of a new era for the island. Fuerteventura, with its 3,000 sunshine hours a year, was placed firmly on the world stage as a major European holiday destination.

The summer Trade Winds and winter swells of the Atlantic make this a year-round surfers' paradise. Sailors, scuba divers and big-game fishermen are all drawn to these clear blue Atlantic waters where whales, dolphins, marlin and turtles are all common sights. With many hills present throughout the Island, hikers are also attracted to this Island.

Precolonial history

The first settlers are believed to have arrived here from North Africa - the word Mahorero (Majorero) or Maho is still used today to describe the people of Fuerteventura and comes from the ancient word 'mahos' meaning a type of goatskin shoe worn by the original inhabitants. They lived in caves and semi-subterranean dwellings, a few of which have been discovered and excavated revealing relics of early tools and pottery. In antiquity, the island was known as Planaria, among other names, in reference to the flatness of most of its landscape.

In the 11th century BC, the Phoenician settlers arrived in Fuerteventura and Lanzarote.

Several Spanish and Portuguese expeditions occurred in about 1340 around the island and the island were inhabited by Maurs and were afflicted with European slave holders.

By the time of the conquest, the island was divided into two Guanches kingdoms, one following the king Guize and the other Ayoze. The territories of these tribes were called Maxorata (in the north) and Jandía (in the south). The kingdoms were separated by a wall whose remains are still preserved today. The wall crossed the La Pared isthmus. The ancient name for the island, Erbania, refers to that wall.

[edit]The conquest

The conquest began in 1402, commanded by Jean de Béthencourt and Gadifer de la Salle.[1] They arrived with only 63 sailors out of the original 283 as so many had deserted. After arriving and settling in Lanzarote, the invaders made their first excursions to the neighbouring islands. In 1404, Bethencourt and Gadifer founded Betancuria, the first settlement on the island. After numerous difficulties, Gadifer took charge of the invasion, while Bethencourt went to the Spanish peninsular to seek the recognition and support of the Castilian king.

Betancuria church.

In 1405, the French conqueror Jean de Béthencourt completed their conquest of the island and gave his name to the former capital, Betancuria, on the west coast (Puerto Rosario took over the mantle as island capital in 1835). The name of the island itself is believed to have come from Bethencourt's exclamation "Quelle forte aventure!" ("What a grand adventure").

Much of the interior, with its large plains, lavascapes and volcanic mountains, consists of protected areas which can be best be explored in a 4x4 or (for the more daring) with a cross-country motorbike on an organised tour.

El Cotillo

El Cotillo is a laidback and undeveloped small resort, hence a great get away for those looking to escape the hustle of everyday life and relax. It's located near some of the most picturesque beach lagoons on the island and is in easy walking distance.

There is a handful of restaurants and shops locally, a supermarket about 10 minutes away. Bus stop close by that takes you to the busier Town of Corralejo about 45minutes away, markets there on Monday and Friday.

"Central Location"

Casa Cesar is in a good central location. It is just a few doors from one of the best restaurants and just a few steps more to a fantastic bakery. The old harbour (and several more good restaurants) is close by. The whole village including a supermarket and several small shops is in easy walking distance. The accommodation is adequate for a couple and was clean and comfortable. Just up the stairs is a very private roof terrace which was ideal for us as we are naturists. The beaches extend to north and south of the centre and are within a short walk. Most important to us was the relaxed attitude to naturism on all the beaches. El Cotillo is a place we visit often. Once seen, never forgotten.

Thank you very much for your kind review. We hope to see you again back in Cotillo.

"In a central location, comfortable, but sewage works a bit too close."

Basic but adequately clean and comfortable. Could do with thicker curtains in thebedroom to exclude the light. Stairs might be difficult for some people. The roof terrace was good, private and out of the wind, we used it a lot. Handy for shops and restaurants. The only real downside was the occasional smell of sewage from the nearby works, if downwind.

Thank you for your review. I have taken on board your comments and have now replaced the curtains in the bedroom. Kind regards.
