One double bedroom with a single bed but the other single bed can be moved in from the lounge. ( we use it as a sofa). Bathroom with bath and hand shower and a walk in shower cubicle. Open plan lounge/kitchen. French windows to patio. Garden surrounding the villa with lemon and lime trees. Also various cacti and a palm tree. Sunbeds with cushions. A winddown blind on the covered patio for windy days. The villa is furnished in traditional Spanish style. We lived there for three years so the kitchen is fully equipped.

Who we are

  1. I am retired living in N Ireland. Myself and my partner travel all over the place. We are interested in going to anywhere in Europe. We are in Lanzarote in the winter but there are weeks when we go back to Ireland that would be available. Just let us know what weeks you are interested in.

  2. As I do not drive anymore we prefer places with good public transport. Cities and towns. Not in the country.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Whilst in Puerto del Carmen, the villa is in a quiet road on the edge of the town. Four minutes walk and you are in the fields at the back of the town. The beach is 10 minutes walk approx away. The surrounding villas etc are roughly half residents ( English, Spanish, Irish and German etc ) and half tourist. A few minutes walk will take you down to the old town with plenty of restaurants and bars. Supermarkets and garage are at the bottom of the road. There is a space inside the gates for your car. Buses go every 20 minutes to Arricife (capital) from the main road (5 minutes walk away). A taxi from the airport costs 17 euros approx and takes 10 minutes. We prefer only two people.

Island bar PDC. Route 66 on the strip. American Indian on the strip.
Your area's cultural and historical landmarks
Places of Interest FIRE MOUNTAIN: A still warm volcano in the centre of a vast volcanic area. A restaurant on the summit uses the volcano’s heat for cooking. It is the start of the Lunar Trip by coach. EL GOLFO: On the western coast where the volcanic area reaches the sea, the coastline has been twisted into strange shapes culminating at El Golfo, a volcanic cone at sea level. ARRICIFE: The capital. Good shopping centre. The buses go every 20 mins from the bottom of the road. LA CERVA DE LOS VERDES: In the north is one of the worlds longest chains of underground volcanic caves, caused by reactions of molten and cooling lava. JAMEOS DEL AGUA: One of the most interesting galleries of connecting caves and underground grottos in the world. Look for the blind crabs. MIRADOR DEL RIO: Cliffs nearly 2,000 feet high with a dramatic view across to the island of Graciosa. HARIA: From Mirador del Rio follow the road to Haria through beautiful mountain scenery going through the ‘Valley of the Thousand Palms’ TEGUISE: The charming previous capital of Lanzarote. There are four medieval churches and a real sense of bygone ages. SANTA BARBARA CASTLE: Now the museum of Emigration, it sits on Guanapay mountain, to the east of Teguise. It was built in the 16th century as a watchtower to warn Teguise if any pirates etc. CESAR MANRIQUE FOUNDATION: The islands cultural centre designed by Cesar Manrique (who played a major part of stopping Lanzarote becoming an overcrowded high rise island) housing major works of art. THE CACTUS GARDEN: One of Cesar Manrique’s last works. The artist turned an old quarry into an impressive cactus plantation. HISTORY: From 1730 to 1735 streams of lava slowly poured out of the earth in the south-western corner, burning eleven villages, although no lives were lost. A large addition was made as the lava fields extended out to sea. Since 1735 there has been no further volcanic activity in this area whatsoever, although at sub-surface levels the ground is continuously hot. Now with no natural water the farmers learned to cover the soil with volcanic ash (picon) which not only kept the soil from drying out, but absorbed moisture from the heavy dews at night..
