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 21C (70F) in January to 29C (84F) 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 is situated on the south-east side of Lanzarote, was originally a fishing village and has grown to become one of the island's finest beach resorts.

This villa is located in the prestigious area of Risco Prieto, an upmarket residential area near the Old Town where the individual villas will suit those who want quiet and seclusion but still be walking distance from town.

Harbour: The Old Town is set around the harbour and offers a huge selection of excellent restaurants with freshly caught fish often a speciality. Great for lunch, dinner or a drink while an adventure playground keeps the children amused. Lots of choice of boat trips from the harbour including trips on a submarine, scuba diving, fishing trips, pleasure cruises and the Water Taxi to the marina at Puerto Calero. The area is popular for strolling and a popular pastime is watching the men on the water front playing boules in the evenings.

Shopping: The Old Town is also well served with shops and the new Biosfera Shopping Plaza, a 13 minute walk (0.9km), hosts such well known names as Zara and Timberland and is a pleasure to visit – a good place to cool off on a hot day because it is air conditioned. It has four floors of shops, restaurants and amusements including the Starlight Open Air cinema playing 2 English movies each evening, a billiard and pool hall, crazy golf, and Cine6D virtual reality motion rides.

Beaches: Playa Chica, a 17-18 minute walk (1.2km) is a pretty little cove surrounding by volcanic rocks, which is perfect for snorkelling and diving (a dive school is located here). Other sports enjoyed at Playa Chica are parascending, banana boat rides, single and double jet-skiing, Crazy UFO and Fly-boarding. The main beach, Playa Grande, a 20-22 minute walk (1.6km) is a long stretch of fine grain sand with calm waters, a very gentle shelf and little current so paddling and swimming are very safe. This lively resort has a beach road with shops, bars and restaurants along one side and the wide, golden sand of Playa Grande 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. The Puerto del Carmen beaches fly the Blue Flag awarded by the EEC for cleanliness and lack of contamination. A variety of sports including tennis and squash are available at the sports centre near the Fariones Hotel.

Rancho Texas Park: a huge theme park with diverse wildlife and a wild west theme 7 minutes drive north-east (5km).

Lanzarote Golf: a public 18-hole course - 8 minute drive (4.8km).

Puerto Calero: 30-50 minute walk (4km) go west along the coastal walk-way and you will reach the marina at Puerto Calero, where there are lovely restaurants and gorgeous shopping. This walk is very popular with our clients. There is also a water taxi from the Old Town harbour if you don’t fancy the walk either one way or both ways. The restaurants in Puerto Calero are perfect for a long lazy lunch. The water taxi back costs 6 Euros and the last one leaves about 5pm.

Gran Karting: a go-karting club 15 minutes drive north-east (13km).

Aqualava Water Park: a geothermally-heated water park 30 minutes drive south-west (25km).

Timanfaya National Park: the natural wonder of Lanzarote has a unique 'Martian' landscape and rare plant species. To the El Diablo restaurant, a 30 minute drive (22km). A unique experience is it to take a camel ride across the volanic landscape, which is a 20 minute drive (17km) away.

Markets: every Friday 10am - 4pm about 100 stalls set up at the Plaza Varadero near the Old Town harbour for locally sourced fruit, vegetables and flowers, as well as handmade craft items, jewellery and clothes (600m). At nearby Tias, the Saturday morning 9am - 2pm Farmers market is an ideal place to purchase fresh locally produced vegetables much cheaper than the supermarkets (10 minute drive 6km north-east). Also, the biggest open-air street market in Lanzarote is on Sunday mornings 9am - 2pm in Teguise (28 minute drive, 21km, north-east).

Festivals: late February, revel at the Carnival or if you’re visiting in July, don’t miss the folklore performances, folk singing, dancing and vibrant processions at the Feast of St Carmen, patron saint of the city and fishermen.

Fly to Arrecife from all major airports in UK: Gatwick, Luton, Stansted, Birmingham, Manchester, Bournemouth, Cardiff, Glasgow and many more.
Airlines include, BA, Ryan Air, Easyjet, Jet2

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.

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.

Mr O, Ireland stayed Mar 2019

Great villa, clean, smart and well equipped. Check in process worked really well and everything we needed was in place. The villa was exceptionally clean and well laid out. We met Emma on the 2nd day and she answered our questions and told us about the area and places to go and visit. The location was great, a short walk down to the harbour and plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from. The villa has a good view over the harbour and a great patio area with plenty of different seating and sun all day.. The pool was clean and well maintained and warm - we swum every day.. I do not have any hesitation in recommending villa benedicte to any one of all ages..

A modern, clean, well equipped property with pool 5/5
Excellent villa with everything you could need for a great holiday. Short walk to the Old Town harbour area with restaurants, shops, boat excursions and diving schools; steps and hills involved but not too bad. Local amenities just around corner but still a peaceful location. Only 10 minutes from airport with transfers favourably priced. Location of Villa Benedicte gives access to cliff top walks or walks around the resort resulting in good choice of things to do without the need to hire car.
Mr P, Cheshire stayed Oct 2018

Thank you for yet another wonderful stay in Villa Benedicte. Everything was fine, and it was very good to have the bigger sized pool😊 We love the location and the outdoor area of the house.
Mrs Dahl, Norway stayed 4 weeks July-Aug 2018

Fantastic villa in an ideal location. Spectacular views and very well appointed. We spent a week there in February and enjoyed it so much we booked it again for October. Simple booking procedure and very helpful local assistant. We also used the transfer service as recommended and could not fault it. Lovely warm pool and very useful supermarket next door. What more do you need.
Mr W, Scotland stayed June 2018

Good Afternoon Sue and Andrea
Apologies for not emailing sooner busy with work Unfortuanlty!!
I would just like to thank you all at Lanzarote leisure’s for a fantastic holiday that we have just had.
Our first week we had family stay with us and it was great that two could do a week and the other two a few days really appreciate that we were able to do this.
Your management team in Lanzarote are so helpful and cheery at all times, Erica is so good nothing is any trouble for her she even arranged a taxi for us to the airport, pool man is lovely chatted to us and explained what he was doing etc, villa is spotless with plenty of towels for a changeover midweek every amenities you could think of we had.
Villa Benedicte was just as we remembered but obviously updated, it is spacious and would recommend to anyone as at one stage there was 6 adults there and we were never under each others foot.
What we do like also is that you are so close by to everything you could possibly need.
We now can not wait until December where we will be back again for 2 weeks, much quieter this time just the two of !!
The only downside we had was that we didn’t do three weeks.
Many Thanks again to you all
Mrs S, Kent, UK stayed June 2018

"great christmas break" 5/5
We had a marvellous stay at Villa Benedict! The pool was well maintained and warm (28°C), we ejoyed the large terrace with sea views, the BBQ and of course the island. We particularly liked the location of the villa, a bit more quiet, but still very close to all amenities. Would definitely recommend!
Mr V, Belgium stayed Dec 2017

"Fantastic villa"
I visited Villa Benedicte with my family and was very impressed by the facilities and great location just a short stroll to the many local shops and bars in the area. The villa is superbly equipped with everything you could need for a relaxing holiday. My family and I enjoyed using the terraces and the heated pool even in November and its a great base from which to tour all of Lanzarote's many interesting features. I would recommend this villa and would choose again on a future trip to the island.
Mr G, London stayed Nov 2017

Hi Sue and Andrea,
We have again had a great holiday in Lanzarote staying in two Lanzarote Leisure Villa's. My wife and I and our oldest daughter, husband and children were in Loretta, this was about our fourth time in this villa and our youngest daughter, husband and five children were next door in Benedicte, we have also stayed in that villa and three others over the years, all booked through Lanzarote Leisure Villa's. For the last ten years we have used these villas and always found them first class. The service we have received prior to travelling and also in Lanzarote have been superb. It is not only with the family we have been there celebrating special occasions but also with other couples who we have known well. We eat out all the time in the evening and there is a great selection of restaurants all easily accessible on foot. Three are within a few hundred yards the other down at the port or on the strip. There are steps down to the front so maybe not ideal for folk with walking difficulties although there are plenty of taxi's. We like a stroll in the evening.
I would certainly recommend using Lanzarote Leisure Villa's.
Mr and Mrs S, Edinburgh - family stayed in Benedicte and Loretta July 2017

Dear Sue and Andrea
We did indeed have a wonderful time staying at the Benedicte to celebrate my 60th birthday with my family.
The villa was beautiful - a very modern interior, tastefully decorated and furnished and extremely well equipped particularly in the kitchen. There was plenty of crockery, cutlery cups and glasses as well as all the utensils needed to cook a 3 course meal. The washing machine and dishwasher were also very welcome. The swimming pool was very well used as were the outside eating and seating areas.
The villa has amazing views of the harbour and although situated in a quieter area of Puerta del Carmen is still very close to a number of restaurants and bars and 2 supermarkets.
I would definitely have no hesitation in staying at Benedicte again and would absolutely recommend it.
Mrs P, stayed May 2017

Beautiful villa everything you need. Excellent views of the harbour great location would highly recommend.

We will defiantly be booking to go back to Villa Benedicte.This made my 65th.birthday special. Thank you.

"Overall it was one of the nicest villas that we have stayed in – anywhere...."
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Benedicte and found the house very well presented, very well equipped and very comfortably furnished. The four wooden/cushioned seating chairs on the terrance are amazing! The location is very convenient for local shops and restaurants in the old town harbour area – the local Spar and English Butchers being just a couple of minutes walk, were frequented regularly by us during our stay. Our weather was great, sunny and warm – so we did not need to use the coin operated air con/heating, just the odd evening when we put the little radiator in the living area on for some background heat. Just a minor point to watch out for - The BBQ – ideally located by the kitchen, but not much in the way of BBQ tools and the grate does not support unburnt charcoal very well (it falls through easily) + the grill above has nothing to support it – so overall using the BBQ is not easy. We reported this to the agents so guess it may now have been resolved. Reps called at beginning and end of our stay and were friendly and helpful - Overall it was one of the nicest villas that we have stayed in – anywhere – and we would love to return again soon!
Tim B, stayed Jan 2016
Management response:
Thank you for your review and we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay. We are not able to alter the BBQ in its present situation but are planning on replacing it. The BBQ tools which seem to have disappeared will be replaced. We would be happy to welcome you back to Villa Benedicte. Sue & Andrea

"Wonderful spacious villa"
As has been said in previous reviews, this villa is absolutely ideal and safe for families with children. We were 3 generations totalling 6 and there was so much space. The villa was so well laid out, from the separate dining room, modern kitchen and large tv (to facilitate with the large lounge) and very comfortable seating inside and out. The area was lovely and so quiet with all necessary facilities from supermarket to eating places. We went for a walk down to the harbour every morning with a 6 month old baby - she slept through it but we enjoyed the magical walk followed by breakfast in the harbour area. Sue and Andrea arranged transport from the airport in a minibus which was perfect and such a help, as well as organising a hire car to be delivered to the door. What more could we ask! Just lovely.

"Fantastic location, facilities & decor"
Villa Benedicte far exceeded our expectations. We are a family of 5 who loved the location, the views, the facilities and the décor. It really did have the wow factor and we expect to return again.
