The villa has been modernised in recent years but still retains a Canarian feel. The covered fenced terrace has patio furniture and a safety gate, ensuring a safe area with space for young children to play and parents to relax in the shade away from the pool. The pool area is fully enclosed with a high wall and has plenty of room for sunbathing. This sunbathing terrace has been extended as shown in the new photography. There is a door from the lounge, where there is a large TV and Play Station 2 (please bring own games), out to the covered terrace. The villa is unusual in having one bedroom with en-suite bathroom with walk in shower (newly done awaiting photos) set away from the other two bedrooms and the family bathroom – ideal when two couples are occupying or when grandparents want to be away from the children. There are two twin bedrooms that share a family bathroom. The master bedroom is very large with room for a cot and a fold up bed for a child to be in with their parents. We provide a cot and high chair free of charge. The villa has free WiFi. There is plenty of room to park cars on the drive although a car is not essential in this location with the supermarket and nearest restaurants just a 5 minute walk away. This villa has modern facilities but maintains a traditional Canarian feel and is perfect for a relaxing holiday for families or couples.

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 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 Area
Casa Gegore is in the Los Mojones residential area of quality villas and a part of Puerto Del Carmen’s old town. This quiet part of Puerto del Carment has a large range of individual villas spread over quite a large area. This villa is located in the lower part of Los Mojones, which is quite important when going out. Some villas rented in this area can be a good 10 minutes further back from the amenities:
Supermarket: 5 minute walk (400m) east to Lidl at No. 1, Calle Juan Carlos I. A large well-stocked supermarket with a great meat counter for your BBQ. When paying just ask a staff member to call a taxi for you and they will happily do so.
Local restaurants/ bars: 5 minute walk (400m) east to Calle Juan Carlos I.
Shopping: Biofera Shopping Plaza, 6-8 minute walk (550m) south-east to No. 15, Calle Juan Carlos I. Four floors of shops (including Zara and Timberland), restaurants and amusements including Starlight Open Air cinema playing 2 English movies each evening, a billiard and pool hall, crazy golf, and Cine6D virtual reality motion rides. A good place to cool off on a hot day because it is air conditioned.
Harbour: 15-16 minute walk (950m) south - there are a wide choice of restaurants and bars in the harbour area. 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 including pleasure cruises, fishing trips, rides on a submarine diving down 50m, scuba diving trips and the water taxi to the marina at Puerto Calero.
Beaches: Playa Chica, a 16-18 minute walk (1.1km) south - 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 16-18 minute walk (1.1km) south-east - 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. There are sunbeds and umbrellas for hire, showers, parking space, lifeguards and also has easy access because it offers aquatic chairs, floats and nets. 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.
The Main Beach Road: 12 minute walk (750m) south-east to the western end of Avenida de las Playas, the long 'strip' of restaurants, cafes, bars and shops of the greatest variety that runs parallel to Playa Grande. Beach-side, the palm-tree lined promenade is perfect for strolling, jogging, cycling on the red brick cycling lane (many bicycle renting places available), or just people watching. Don’t forget taxi fares are inexpensive in Lanzarote if you don’t want to walk home.
Puerto Calero: 50 minute walk (4km) go west along the coastal walkway 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. 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.
Golf: Lanzarote Golf - an 18-hole public course, 8 minute drive (2.4km).
Zoo: Rancho Texas Lanzarote Park, a 4 minute drive (3.1km). Displays of birds of prey, sea lions, and parrots and cockatoos and you can also see other exotic birds and reptiles, including the Komodo dragon. Also a cowboy lasso and whip show, and the children can enjoy canoeing and gold-panning, pony riding, and then cool off in the pool with water slides.
Go Karting: Gran Karting, a fun go-karting track 11 minutes drive north-east (8.3km).
National Park: Timanfaya National Park, the natural wonder of Lanzarote has a unique 'Martian' landscape and rare plant species. To the El Diablo restaurant, a 32 minute drive (24km). A unique experience is it to take a camel ride across the volanic landscape (21 minute drive, 19km).
Water Park: Aqualava Water Park, a geothermally-heated water park, 30 minutes drive south-west (25km).
Markets: every Friday 10am - 4pm 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 (950m). 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 (8 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: in February revel at the Puerto del Carmen Carnival with the main parade along the Avenida de las Playas (the main beach road). Or if you’re visiting in July-August, don’t miss the two weeks of folklore performances, folk singing, dancing, sports, fairground, the traditional boat procession from the harbour culminating with a street procession and fireworks at the Fiesta Nuestra Señora del Carmen (Our Lady of Carmen), the patron saint of the city and fishermen. This festival is really popular with visitors as well as locals and is celebrated in the Plaza Varadero in the old town harbour area.
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 and Thomas Cook.
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.
