Villas in Lanzarote
No matter what time of year, Lanzarote has a mild dry climate and average daytime temperatures that seldom fall below 21 degrees centigrade, it is the most easterly of the Canary Islands and just 79 miles off the coast of Africa. Due to Canary Island’s special Duty Free status, tobacco, perfume and alcohol is much cheaper than enywhere else in the EU. In actual fact, Lanzarote prices are usually much lower than in the airport or on the aircraft. All this is why Lanazarote is the perfect year-round destination for tons of holiday makers.
In 1978, package holidays began to hit Lanzarote after the development of Puerto del Carmen. This proved such a success that the resorts of Costa Teguise and Playa Blanca followed and quickly became equally popular holiday destinations. However, there are more tranquil parts of this starkly beautiful island that can be enjoyed by those seeking a more relaxed time at their own pace. Holiday lettings in Lanzarote range from basic two bedroom villas in complexes to luxury properties with beautiful landscape gardens.
Despite this influx of tourists, local authority regulations on the amount and style of development mean that there is no ugly billboard advertising and no high rise buildings in Lanzarote (with the exception of the Grand Hotel in Arrecife) to spoil views. Lanzarotte villas also conform to these local regulations and are generally built in sympathy with their environment. That environment can be pretty stark and has sometimes been described as “lunar” or “Martian” in appearance in certain places on the island. As with the other Canary Islands, Lanzarote is volcanic in origin, with eruptions taking place as recently as the 18th and 19th Centuries. The most popular holiday complex is probably Playa Blanca but holiday villas here still serve up good locations, beautiful gardens and stunning views while still providing all the comforts and facilities you could want for that ideal villa holiday in Lanzarote.
