About Joy Swinburne

Hi,Let me introduce ourselves we are Joy and John and live in the village of Llanishen in Monmouthshire we run local pub and holiday cottages for the past 14 years. Over the years we talked about buying a home in the sun with the intention of someday retiring there or, at least spending the very bleakest months (January to March) of the years

there. We first visited Lanzarote in 1999 when we holidayed there with our son and my parents.Over the following years we holidayed there many times and fell in love with the Island.We also run a local village pub (Carpenters Arms) and we have just had two 5* holiday cottages built alongside the pub.

Joy Swinburne purchased this villa in 2006

Why Joy Swinburne chose Playa Blanca - Yaiza

There were many reasons why we decided to purchase in Lanzarote–flight time is just under 4 hours, the time zone is the same, the Island is so beautiful and unspoilt and of course the guaranteed sunshine all year round.What more could a body ask for! We decided on Playa Blanca well, simply because none of the other resorts could compete.Playa Blanca has it all - low rise, well planned resort with the most breath-taking views and beaches and just 25 minutes drive from the airport.A few minutes walk from the coastline which hosts 2 beaches–Papagayo and Playa Dorada the local shops are just around the corner.The town of Playa Blanca is a 15 minute walk away.When we viewed the property with its location just a few minutes from the coast we just knew this was what we had been looking for

What makes this villa unique

Villa Casa Blanca, is adults only for peace and tranquility built to a very high specification, large garden, private pool (electrically heated), private parking, high ceilings with fans in each bedroom in the lounge and master bedroom to give a light and airy feeling.We decorated the interior ourselves and we visit regularly to upkeep the property and ensure it is maintained at the luxury standard that we want and would expect We have 5star cottages in wales .We have engaged the services of a local English speaking villa management company and our housekeepers Jayne & John take as much pride in the Villa as we do.Should you choose to rent with us we can assure you that we will look after you very well as we appreciate that your holiday is important to you.Villa Casa Blanca offers peace and tranquility and is a ‘Home Away From Home'

Guestbook comments from the owner

The villa is a well appointed semi detached in a very nice quiet residential area of Playa Blanca. Playa Blanca is in my view the best resort on the island for families - it also has the best weather in winter.



The villa was spotlessly clean when we arrived. The best feature of the place has to be the heated pool, which is a real bonus in winter - I doubt you could use an unheated pool in the Canaries in winter. The villa has all the mod cons - dishwasher, tv, dvd.



There was a handy local guide, and the property managers, who live a stone's throw away, are very helpful and friendly.



The villa is about a 10 or 15 minute walk from the local facilities and the beach - we would recommend hiring a car to explore the island if nothing else, but it is not an absolute must if you are happy with one using the one beach and the pool.

Location

Car: not necessary

Coast/Beach:

Within Playa Blanca there are a number of sandy beaches. The white beach in the very centre of the town, from which Playa Blanca gets it's name, has been awarded a European 'blue flag' - a tribute to it's cleanliness. Playa Flamingo beach a few minutes walk to the west, is a very attractive and safe beach suitable for families. Playa Dorada, a few minutes walk in the opposite direction, is my own favourite - another 'blue flag' beach - ideal for early morning swimmers.

Travel:

There are daily ferry crossings to Fuerteventura from Playa Blanca.

Timanfaya National Park (Fire Mountain) is a 15 minute car journey away, as is El Golfo a beautiful green lagoon.

Distances:

Playa Blanca with its good selection of restaurants and shops is a 5 minute drive away. The newly built Rubicon Marina is approximately 1 mile away. Lanzarote is a small island only 35 miles long and 14 miles wide with reasonable roads which makes exploring the places of interest relatively easy.

Further Details:

Lanzarote has many places of interest and is often described as magical with its unusual and spectacular landscape, dramatic mountains alternating with sweeping plains interspersed with whitewashed villages. A guide book is provided in the villa giving details of places to visit. Amongst these we would recommend the tour of the Montanas del Fuego (Mountains of Fire) a fascinating, atmospheric experience within the Timanfaya National Park.

Development of the island is low level and has been closely monitored to prevent the island from becoming spoilt. The influence of the late Cesar Manrique, Lanzarote’s artist, designer and conservationist has contributed to this. Lanzarote was declared a "world reserve of the biosphere" by Unesco in 1992.
