Family holidays give you that special chance to spend some quality time together. Its a time when parents, grandparents and grand children can be under the same roof in a relaxed atmosphere. Villa holidays are good for offering relaxation for the older members of the party and a private pool for the kids to splash around in. It can be a worry though if there are very young children in the party and no matter how much you try to relax you need to keep your eyes open with regard to the dangers of having a swimming pool in your garden. Lanzarote Villa Choice have put together a seletion of villas with gated pools for those of you that worry about the danger and can have some piece of mind knowing that the pool cannot be accessed so easily by the toddlers.

Villas in Tias

Tias is one of the oldest towns in Lanzarote and has become one of the most popular areas for British people relocating to the island.

New Villas in Matagorda Puerto del Carmen

Yesterday we went to see 2 new villas in Puerto del Carmen in the Matagorda area. We have had many requests over the years for villas in this area but they have been extremely difficult to find. It was a beautiful day so we took advantage and took some photos. We are all eally exited to be offering a 3 bedroom and 2 bedroom villa on our portfolio.

A Special Villa in Puerto del Carmen

Puerto del Carmen is the most developed resort on the island with a countless selection of amenities. Popular because there are plenty of places to eat, plenty of places to shop and beautiful beaches that stretch along the coastline. The resort has also managed to maintain its charm and remains peaceful. Many of the villas are situated on the outskirts of Puerto del Carmen which is just a 10 or 15 minute stroll to the centre in most cases. We are extremely lucky to have a 4 bedroom villa which is just a couple of minutes walk. These types of villa which are just  just a stones throw from everything are extremely hard to find.

New Villa in Puerto Calero

It was a beautiful day yesterday to take photos of a new 5 bedroom villa in Puerto Calero which we are adding to our portfolio. Its not your traditional type of villa. Very spacious, it was easy to get lost after wandering around for the first time. I always think of my family holidays when I look these larger places and how we would all fit in. This villa could of been a competitor as there were plenty of rooms for all of us to find some privacy including 2 lounges and nice outside are with a gated pool so we could let the kids run free. There was even a gym and a games room. Its such a nice area and great place to relax so we welcomed a trip down the marina for a cold drink to cool off.

 


What is a Yurt?

We had a great opotunity to stay in a yurt for one night last week. We were invited to try out the experience by one of our owners.  It was only one night but I came back feeling completely relaxed. For those of you that do not know what a Yurt is, its a large round tent double skinned which is used by nomads in central Asia.  The structure comprises an angled assembly or latticework of pieces of wood or bamboo for walls, a door frame. Yurts have been a distinctive feature of life in Central Asia for at least three thousand years.

The Yurt we stayed in was in a self contained complex offering Eco living. The spacious bedrooms were contained in individual Yurts with a open stone built kitchen and shower room separate. If you enjoy outdoor living it is just the perfect place. A get away from it all experience with no TV and wifi available only in the comunal area.

The retreat offers services which include an onsite Honesty Shop and wine racks stocking a selection of locally produced wines. This supplements the delivery service of Local Farm Produce Grocery Boxes. Younger visitors will be amused not only by collecting eggs from the free-range hens and meeting Mollie, our resident donkey, but also by letting off steam in the mini adventure playground with a wooden “pirate” boat and sunken trampoline.
