3 bedroom Tías holiday villa rental with private pool
October 2019

There was a group of four adults in our party . Two couples . The villa is in an ideal position for the center of matagorda and just a six min drive from the airport. The villa was a three bed room two bath room so plenty of room inside . The outside area had the sun for best part of the day . The sun loungers were a bit dated and not very comfortable ! To the side of the villa there was a table and chairs (plastic) . We preferred this to be around the pool so moved it there on the first morning . It was really dirty and fell to bits . We had to buy cleaner and clean it before use! There was also a rattan set in a dirty condition also . I removed the covers and put them in the washer, having to again buy powder to do so. The day bed was also dirty but was not sure the covers would fit in the washer so just covered it with blankets and towel . Althoug( the pool was small it was big enough for our party of four. We had to ask for it to be cleaned as there was a ring around it like a dirty bath. We were told it was from our sun cream , we hadn’t yet been in the pool so it was from previous guests. We had to re clean it several times. The centre has several bars and eateries to choose from with plenty of choice for every one . If you want something busier then porta del carmen is a ten min taxi drive away with a larger selection ! A little better up keep on the out side area (cleaning the furniture etc and sweeping as cigarette buts were found on the floor around the pool ) and this is a lovely villa and we would definitely return

2 bedroom villa with private pool in Yaiza, Lanzarote
October 2019

We had a fantastic time relaxing round the pool. You are based away from the busy areas of playa blanca but you can get the bus from the local shopping area that runs every 30 mins the full length of playa blanca, where you can be in the middle of everything. You can walk into playa blanca which can take around 40 mins depends on how fast you walk. So the villa is as advertised, it was clean and had all what you need to survive. We did eat in a couple of times but most of the time we went out to the local restaurants. The lighthouse was our favourite. Would we recommend this villa Yes definitely if your looking for a peaceful place. Thanks to Bill and Patsy

4 bedroom Tías villa to rent
September 2019

lovely villa definitely needs a bit of updating though, struggled to work the appliances and the hot tub honestly looked bit grubby so didn't use it at all and was looking forward to that so that was disappointing but definitely still worth the price. Pool was great and was in a lovely quiet area not to far from the airport or the beaches

Nice villa with good pool.Heated pool required maintenance a couple of times but did not effect us in any way.It was a bit of atrial down to the resort ,although manageable.If there was any critism any one renting with toddlers the villa would benefit with a strair gate. Good bar "El Tonel"around the corner which provided excellent take away pizza.There is also a cash & carry within 10 mins .

April 2019

Wow thus villa has been perfect for myself and children. The villa is in a perfect location and was immaculate on arrival. It has gorgeous views and the perfect view of sunrise in a morning. The pool is perfect and ideal that I could be locked away which was a key point for me with 3 young children. The out door space was great for entertaining and spending days in the sun. We will 100% be back later in the year

Travel guide

Holidays in Lanzarote, an island of intriguing beauty

Located off the coast of West Africa, Lanzarote is a holidaymaker's paradise with otherworldly surroundings, year-round sunshine and clear, warm waters. The most easterly of the Canaries, its striking black and red landscape and dark sand beaches, along with its unspoiled lush green countryside, makes you feel like you're on another planet. Discover the beauty of its unusual volcanic soil and striking rocky terrain, as the region's refreshing silence simply invites you to unwind and recharge your batteries among the volcanoes, lava tubes and world-class beaches.

Rent one of our villas in Lanzarote and explore the dramatic, lunar-like scenery of Timanfaya National Park - on the back of a camel if you so desire! Sample the gastronomical delights of food that has been cooked using geothermal heat of volcanoes. For a culture injection, enjoy the harmonic merging of nature and art at Jameos del Aqua, the legacy of famous Lanzarote artist César Manrique, who left his signature markings all over the island.

Lanzarote is a land of diversity, from the quiet and sophisticated Playa Blanca with its beach, coves and beautiful marina, to the purpose-built resort of Costa Teguise with its traditional markets, museums, day trips and, of course, wonderful coast offering an abundance of water sports. For more earthly pursuits, the island's most popular resort, Puerto del Carmen, is the perfect place to let your hair down, with lively lounges, cocktail bars and nightclubs.

Where to go in Lanzarote

Puerto del Carmen

Puerto del Carmen, on the south-east coast of Lanzarote, is the most popular resort on the island. Set amongst clear waters next to golden sandy beaches with a backdrop of striking volcanic hills, the resort is a permanent hit with holiday-makers of all ages. 

Costa Teguise

Lanzarote's third largest tourist resort on the island's east coast is fifteen minutes away from the airport. Sandy beaches, year-round sunshine, rich history and easy access to the main island's attractions make Costa Teguise a perfect destination for a holiday in Lanzarote.

Playa Blanca

Less noisy than some of its Lanzarote siblings, Playa Blanca is a quieter and sophisticated resort. Besides a charming marina with restaurants, bars and shops, the vast white beach fully lives up to its name. You'll find everything you need here for a great family holiday.

La Graciosa

When you think of unspoilt paradise where you can get away from it and simply stroll along empty golden beaches, the image you've had in your head might look like La Graciosa off the north coast of Lanzarote. Enjoy your holiday in the beauty of its volcanic landscape. 

Arrecife

If you want to catch a more metropolitan side of Lanzarote, then visit Arrecife, the island's capital. This shoppers' paradise offers more than just elegant boutiques; a rich history, authentic atmosphere, lively marina and long promenade is what you'll find here.

A beginner's guide to renting a villa in Lanzarote

Lanzarote is no doubt intriguing and different – not only when compared to other Canary Islands, but also when compared to locations across the globe. Made up of seven districts, each offers something new and has its own distinct charm and beauty.

Arrecife district

Arrecife on the east coast of Lanzarote has been the island's capital since 1852. Nowadays it’s famous for the long pedestrian road crowded with shops, boutiques and high-end retail outlets. It attracts many tourists who come to make the most of its endless shopping possibilities. Aside from being a shoppers' paradise, Arrecife has a rich history, which can be found in its 18th Century Castle of San José, home to the International Museum of Contemporary Art. This historic gem, where past and present collide, is a must-see. For peaceful family trips, head to the quiet beach of El Reducto six minutes away. 

San Bartolomé district

San Bartolome is the agricultural centre of Lanzarote in the middle of the island. Its many attractions are not clearly visible from the main road passing through the town, but if you scratch the surface a little, San Bartolomé soon reveals its hidden treasures that are best explored by foot. Travel back in time with a wide range of everyday items from the last two hundred years displayed at Tanit Ethnographic Museum in the town's centre.

Haría district

Haria, otherwise known as Valley of a Thousand Palms, is a village and district in the north of Lanzarote. The jewel in the heart of this typical Canarian village absolutely worth visiting is House Museum, the home of the world famous artist César Manrique. Discover the unique world of this esteemed virtuoso who left a remarkable artistic heritage to the island. The longest volcanic lava tube in the world, the Tunnel of Atlantis, is a popular tourist attraction in the district; leave behind the sunshine and explore the enchanting underground secrets of La Cueva de los Verdes and Jameos del Aqua. 

Teguise district

Teguise, the former capital, is a district in central Lanzarote. The best way to get to know this town is to wander its cobbled old streets taking in the charming atmosphere as you walk by elegant houses, convents, churches and quaint squares. Well worth a visit is the Fortress of Santa Bárbara, housing a Pirate Museum with amazing panoramic views from the top. Lanzarote also boasts the famous purpose-built resort of Costa Teguise on the island's east coast. The Blue Flag beaches of El Jablillo and Las Cucharas, quality restaurants and easy access to many of the island's major tourist attractions make Costa Teguise a great base for a holiday in Lanzarote. 

Tías district

Tias is one of the oldest and most important districts on the island set in the central south of Lanzarote. The peace and tranquillity of some of its hamlets, away from the ocean, contrast sharply with the upbeat feel of Puerto del Carmen on Lanzarote's south east coast. As the island's most famous resort, Puerto del Carmen is without a doubt the main destination for party goers since it boasts the largest cluster of bars, pubs and nightclubs. The Blue Flag beaches of Los Pocillos and Matagorda are expansive beaches children and grown-ups can enjoy alike. Perfect for a day out with the family is the nearby animal and water park Rancho Texas Lanzarote where you can splash out in pools and slides after wandering around the park watching the animal shows.

Yaiza district

Yaiza is a town and district in the south of Lanzarote. Its surrounding volcanic countryside is in a sheer contrast with the colourful plants and flowers lining the streets of Yaiza Old Town. Explore the lunar-like landscape of Timanfaya National Park on the island's south-west and enjoy the experience of cooking your own food on its volcanic rocks. A large yacht marina, plenty of cafés and a relaxed authentic atmosphere make Playa Blanca the perfect place for a quieter, more sophisticated holiday in Lanzarote. Among its beaches, those of Playa Blanca, Dorada and Flamingo stand out for their white sand and proximity to the area. However, without a doubt, the nearby Papagayo beach is the jewel of the region with its network of fine white sandy coves. Walk through the rugged volcanic terrain of the island's largest wine-making region, La Geria, and take in the unique atmosphere and savour one of its delicious Malvasia wines. 

Tinajo district

Tinajo is a town and district in the western part of Lanzarote's island. Although it doesn't boast big tourist resorts, it still offers plenty of picturesque villages and stunning scenery. Take a stroll down into the heart of an extinct volcano in the fascinating landscape of the Natural Volcano Park; or admire the Church of San Roque, one of the impressive examples of Canarian architecture found in many structures scattered along a charming town's square.

Did you know...

  • The 16th Century Castle of San Gabriel in Arrecife was declared a National Historic Monument in 1972.
  • The densest concentration of Canarian palm trees in the world is found in Lanzarote's district of Haria.
  • Cueva de los Verdes is the longest volcanic lava tube in the world in the Tunnel of Atlantis. It is over 7km long and boasts the stunning lava caves of Jameos del Agua.
  • The former capital, Teguise, is the oldest Spanish settlement in the whole of the Canaries, dating back to 1402.
  • Lanzarote has its very own wine-making region, La Geria.
