The Lanzarote Region
Lanzarote is situated just 70 miles off the coast of Africa and is the most easterly of the Canary Islands. The island is 37 miles (60km) long and 12 miles (20 km) wide, making it the fourth largest island in the Canaries.
Lanzarote enjoys a mild dry climate with average daytime temperatures ranging from about 21°C in January to 29°C in August. Annual rainfall is just 140mm (5.5 inches). This makes Lanzarote the perfect year-round destination.
As with the other Canary Islands, Lanzarote is Volcanic in origin. Due to the recent eruptions during the 18th and 19th Centuries, many parts of Lanzarote appear to be from another world, often described as 'lunar' or 'Martian', so much so that parts of 'Planet of the Apes' were shot here. The dry climate (and lack of erosion) means that the Volcanic Landscape appears much as it did just after the eruptions.
Amongst the many stunning Volcanic features of Lanzarote is the longest Volcanic Tunnel in the world, the Atlantida Tunnel, which is over 7 km long and includes the La Cueva de los Verdes and Jameos del Agua.
Despite the Volcanic nature of the island, Lanzarote has several beautiful white beaches such as at Playa Blanca and Papagayo.
Local authority regulations on the amount and style of development mean that there is no billboard advertising and no high rise buildings in Lanzarote (with the exception of the Grand Hotel in Arrecife)
Puerto del Carmen Area
The Old Town is set around the harbour and offers a huge selection of excellent restaurants with freshly caught fish often a speciality. A variety of boat trips can be taken from the harbour including fishing trips and pleasure cruises. The area is popular for strolling and a popular pastime is watching the men on the water front playing boules in the evenings. The Old Town is well served with shops and the new Biosfera shopping centre hosting such well known names as Zara and Timberland is a pleasure to visit – a good place to cool off on a hot day because it is air conditioned. This villa is located in the prestigious area of Los Mojones, a residential area set above the Old Town where the individual villas will suit those who want quiet and seclusion but still be walking distance from town.
You are only a 20 minute walk to Peurto del Carmen, this lively resort has a beach road with shops, bars and restaurants along one side and a wide beach of golden sand with a promenade along the other. There are sunbeds and umbrellas for hire for those who wish to relax or water sports for those who seek more activity. A variety of sports including tennis and squash are available at the sports centre near the Fariones Hotel. The Puerto del Carmen beaches fly the Blue Flag awarded by the EEC for cleanliness and lack of contamination.
There are daily flights to Lanzarote with Aer Lingus from Dublin and Cork. This airport is well serviced by charter airlines also.
Car hire is relatively cheap in Lanzarote. A hire car is the best option for discovering the remote wilderness regions. It only takes about 40 minutes to cross the entire island from North to South by car, and about 25 minutes across.
NO MORE QUEUING FOR TAXIS!
We offer an airport transfer service run by a reliable local company who will meet you at Lanzarote airport. They will transport you by minibus to your villa or apartment. On your departure day, at a pre-arranged time, they will collect you and return back to the airport for your flight home.

Stayed here Easter 2012. Villa gorgeous. Extremely clean with lovely views of the marina. All correspondence with Sue from the Management company was met with a "nothing too much trouble" attitude, which ensured our holiday was perfect. Thanks Sue and your great team Mr and Mrs B-Hall
Fabulous Villa in Puerto Del Carmen. My husband and I travelled to Lanzarote to race in the Ironman event there. We loved the look of the Benedicte online and exchanged emails with the property manager Sue leading up to our arrival. Sue was wonderful to work with and even arranged a private shuttle for us with our luggage and bikes. The Villa exceeded our expectations and was even more spectacular in person than on the website. Fully equipped and a wonderful place to stay, we'd return again in a heartbeat. Great property and wonderful to work with Sue to put this trip together!
Having just returned from a 10 day stay in Villa Benedicte , we would highly recommend this villa to prospective clients. Having decided on a luxury villa for only two of us , we found the villa to be even better than anticipated. Extremely spacious , - would easily accomodate a family very comfortably - very well equiped and in a perfect location for access to everything that you could possibly need or want for a truly relaxing holiday. The villa was very clean and when we did request information or assistance relating to the villa , the reponse was immediate and professional. Booking was easy as we dealt directly with Sue and this included pre-booking airport transfers which we would definitely recommend having experienced the alternative in previous years of arriving very late
in pitch dark and then trying to direct a taxi driver to a villa that we have never visited. The arranged transfer was seamless and meant that we were in the villa within an hour of landing. Sue happened to be on the island when we were there and this gave us the opportunity to view another stunning villa that she also has available for rental. Sue was extremely professional , knows the island very well and was very genuinely interested
to hear our feedback and our overall experience of staying in Villa Benedicte. Following our fifth and best experience of renting on this beautiful island, we will definitely be booking via Lanzarote leisure villas for next year - with hopefully - work permitting - a short winter break in between !!
P.S. At the risk of stating the obvious ... the food , rioja and of course the weather ... were all stunning. As always!"
Mr B from Scotland. June 2011
Thanks Sue. This is our 9th visit and we will be back. Mr & Mrs M.
