Lovely villa. My fiancee appreciated the little touches, especially the towel art. We were impressed that the cleaners and pool man came a second time, just before the end of our stay. We are thinking of going again, either to Villa Calma or another one provided by Beach Villas.Read more

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. Lanzarote is no doubt intriguing and different – not only when compared to other Canary Islands, but also when compared to locations across the globe.

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.
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. Teguise is the former capital and a district in central Lanzarote. The best way to get to know this region 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.
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.
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.
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. 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.
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.
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 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 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.

Lanzarote may have gained a reputation for being a bit grotty. Some believe that the beaches are all sprinkled with washed-up rubbish and covered with tourists lazing on the beach, slowly turning a delightful shade of lobster… But look outside the tourist resorts (cough, cough... Costa Teguise), and beyond the Irish bars, and you'll find a peaceful island with stunning natural scenery and plenty of traditional family-run tapas restaurants.
