Villa Loretta With Private Pool, Puerto Del Carmen Old Town, Lanzarote

Villa Loretta was new to the holiday rental market in 2011 after an extensive refurbishment. It very quickly proved to be popular with our regular clients. This Lanzarote villa is in a prime location on the cliff top in the Old Town of Puerto del Carmen. For those who know the area it is just in front of Villa Benedicte. It has superb views of the Old Town, the harbour and beyond across the sea. Furnished in a modern style throughout, this is an upmarket, spacious and stylish villa. The terrace, which can be accessed from both the kitchen and lounge, has the benefit of harbour and sea views. To the side of the villa is the private pool and barbecue terrace. This has a covered shaded seating area by the barbecue to provide for the all important al-fresco dining. The pool, which will be heated in the winter months ...

...(November to April inclusive) has steps for entry and is surrounded by terracing and flower borders. A 10 minute stroll away with easy access via the steps or coastal walkway takes you down to the harbour. If you really feel you don’t want to leave the villa then the nearby supermarket will have all you need to eat at home. Relax and enjoy Villa Loretta.

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 the film '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. The beach at Famara is fantastic, especially for watching the surfing and the long main beach in Puerto del Carmen is plenty big enough for everyone to spread out and enjoy in peace.

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)

Supermarket: 2 minute walk (160m) to a Spar. Also a 22 minute walk (1.6km) 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: 2 minute walk (95m).

Biosfera Shopping Plaza: 13-15 minute walk (950m) to No. 15, Calle Juan Carlos I. Four floors of shops, 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.

Harbour: 4-5 minute walk (280m) down the steps or a 6-7 minute walk (450m) down the walk-way, which is ideal for prams/buggies or wheelchairs. 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 on a submarine, scuba diving and the Water Taxi to the marina at Puerto Calero.

Beaches: Playa Chica, a 14 minute walk (1km) 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 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.

Main Beach Road: 18 minute walk (1.4km) 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. 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.

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

Zoo: Rancho Texas Lanzarote Park, a 7 minute drive (5km). 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.

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

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 30 minute drive (22km). A unique experience is it to take a camel ride across the volanic landscape (20 minute drive, 17km).

Water Park: Aqualava Water Park, a geothermally-heated water park, 30 minutes drive south-west (29km).

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 (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 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.

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.

No smoking in the villa. Single sex groups only by special arrangement.

Prices include pool electrically heated from November to April inclusive.

Hi Sue & Andrea
Another great holiday in Villa Loretta , as usual the view from the villa is beautiful, just to walk out onto the veranda take in the sun rising from the sea, and look down onto the port starting to come alive is spectacular.The pool area is welcoming with more dining tables and chairs along with comfortable loungers. To be able to have breakfast outside is wonderful with another dining table & chairs looking onto the Port.
The space in the living area is huge with all you want from TV with all stations, Stero and a nice little library of books for relaxing. The fully fitted kitchen makes light work for cooking with a huge amount of dishes, cutlery, glasses and pots & pans & dishwasher, Fridge freezer.
The 2 indoor bathrooms are great with good showers and bedrooms are also good.
Location is great as a 5 minute walk brings you to a small centre (Montana Tropical) with a spar Shop, Italian Restaurant, 3 Bars, Beauty Parlour, and gift shop.
This is our 2nd Christmas to spend in Villa Loretta and will look forward to returning again.
Not forgetting to Thank Elaine & Harry for their upkeep of Villa & Pool.
Wishing you all a Happy New Year & look forward to booking with Lanzarote Leisure Villas.
Mrs O from Dublin, Ireland 03.01.19

Loved the villa, comfortable, loads of space & the view!! ... great tv channels ... would highly recommend & hopefully be back again.
Mrs C from Co Cork, Ireland 20.11.18

Thanks again for another brilliant week in Villa Loretta. The villa was perfect and as always was spotlessly clean when we arrived. We have no complaints at all and can't wait to return next year.
Laura from Derbyshire, UK 2.10.18

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 from Edinburgh 22.7.17

Dear Sue and Andrea,
We have just had two enjoyable weeks holiday in Loretta, the villa was as always, clean and well equipped with all we needed. My daughter was particularly please as she could keep up with soaps on the English TV channels. We look forward to next May when we hope to return.
Mr W from Norfolk 24.5.17

Dear Sue and Andrea,
We are back in the UK and it gives me great pleasure to pen a recommendation for Lanzarote leisure villas not only for the quality of the villas but the very capable team who make sure our holiday runs smoothly. I have been a very happy client on the many times we have spent vacation time at Villa Benedict, Villa Loretta and Casa Chica. From the time of the booking you have held my confidence because you have such high standards and are very honest, two ingredients which when unlocking the front door on arrival day assures me it's going to feel like I'm coming home. You must have a great relationship with your owners because they trust you to be selective as to who you recommend to share their holiday homes. That works well because it shows up in the number of repeats my family and other clients book with you. As you are aware we wanted to return again at the end of August this year and there was only one week available across all your villas which I have taken.
So here I am going to Villa De Carrida for the first time and I already know that when I turn the key on arrival day I'll feel like I'm coming home again.
Thank you.
Mr Dennis 26.3.17 (stayed Loretta Aug 2014 and Apr 2016 too)

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Loretta. The villa is first class, it is very comfortable and spacious and was spotlessly clean when we arrived. This was our third visit to the Villa and we have booked again for next year so I think that says it all. You are 10 minutes walk away from the harbour and taxis are cheap if you want to go further along the strip where there are plenty of nice bars and restaurants. If you are looking for a villa that is private and maintained to a high standard - book Villa Loretta, you won't be disappointed.
Laura 29.10.15

Our second visit to this lovely villa situated in a superb position overlooking Puerto del Carmen harbour. It is very close to the coastal pathway leading to Puerto Calero and only 10 minutes walk to the old town. Villa has all amenities required for a wonderful holiday including air conditioning which is welcome during the hot summer months.Management and administration of the property by Sue, Andrea and Elaine is excellent.
Brian 28.8.15

Excellent villa all round. Good quality furnishings and fittings, well managed, very clean.
Fantastic views of the harbour and sea, was great to see the sun rise over the sea on Christmas Day.
Good size pool, again very clean, heated but not 'tropical'. The management was honest in saying there was some difficulty in maintaining its temperature, so kept pool cover on when not swimming.
Keen to return, not surprising this villa is always booked.
Millie 2.1.15

Wir sind sehr zufrieden mit allem. Die Villa ist super ausgestattet - läßt keine Wünsche offen. Für die deutschen Urlauber wurden jetzt entsprechende Sender im TV installiert. Hier sind Profis am Werk von der Reservierung bishin zum aufenthalt alles ohne Mangel. Die Lage der Villa ist einzigartig und wir werden wiederkommen. Danke für alles
We are very pleased with everything. The villa is well equipped - leaves nothing to be desired. Corresponding transmitter now been installed in the TV for the German tourists. Here are professionals at work from the reservation to the stay all without defect. The location of the villa is unique and we will be back. Thanks for everything.
Karin and Winfried 16.12.13

"Luxurious privacy in the heart of the action"
A great villa finished to a very high and comfortable standard in a brilliant location with great views over the old town and harbour.
All amenities are only a few minutes away and really easy to get to.
We travel to the island a lot using Lanzarote Leisure Villas and find the company really good to deal with.
We've already re booked this villa!
Jo 10.10.13

I trolled the Internet looking for a villa that would sleep 6 adults and my 3 year old daughter. I eventually found Villa Loretta and booked through Lanzarote Leisure Villas. The booking was extremely easy, I asked a few questions including possibility of late check out and was pleasantly surprised when the answers were emailed within the hour.
On arrival access was easy and our expectations were exceeded when we saw the luxury accomodation.
Walking out onto the terrace there is a stunning view of the harbour. Safety was obviously considered as there is a gated pool area that children will be unable to access without adult supervision.
There is also a lockable side gate which gives access to the steps down to the harbour saving you walking all the way round.
The area surrounding the villa is residential and very quiet. The nearest pub/restaurant and grocers shop in 3 minutes walk away and the beach about 20 minutes walk.
I look forward to booking Villa Loretta with Lanzarote Leisure Villas soon.
Mrs B from Erskine 10.9.13

Perfection! We have stayed in many villas in Lanzarite over the years, this one however exceded all expectations. Everything that anyone could ever need is there. The fixtures and fittings are to an exceptionally high standard. The view fom the terrace has got to be one of the best on the island.
We will definitely be returning next year and beyond.
Mrs Liz B 26.7.13

We had a relaxing stay in this really beautiful property with stunning views. We have visited the Island of Lanzarote many times, but this was our frist time in Villa Loretta. We cannot fault the property or the facilities there. Much thought has been put into making the property extremely comfortable; the bathrooms are stunning, it is tastefully furnished and very spacious. Just the two of us stayed there, but the property would also be extremely suitable for a family or for 2 couples. The location is fantastic and view from the terrace also takes your breath away. You're close to the old harbour, just 10 mins walk away where there are plent of good restaurants. You could not wish for a better "holiday home!" The management on the island are always extremely helpful and Sue Bardwell of Lanzarote Leisure Villas who handle this particular property is always extremely helpful. Congratulations to everyhone for making such a fabulous property available, we cannot wait to return.
Mr and Mrs L 28.5.12

Our family of 3 teenage boys and ourselves had the pleasure of staying at Villa Loretta. Without doubt, Villa Loretta outshone any that we have stayed in to date. The house is deceptively large with a great layout that gives everyone lots of space to enjoy their holiday. The pool and outside area wasa great hit and got lots of use - the boys still think that it was heavenly to jump in after our days cycling to Arrecife. The location is great, being so close via the steps to the old port, its restaurants and the walkway in either direction, close enough to join in the activities of Puerto del Carmen, yet quiet enough to have a holiday away from it all if you wanted (or like us, a bit of both). All in all, Sue, thank you, Villa Loretta really made our holiday extra special.
