A quality, non complex property . Particularly suitable for those seeking a quiet holiday or a base from which to explore the island. The apartment is fully equipped and comfortable with a private heated pool of which the guests have sole use. This is most suited for couples. Set on the edge of the tranquil village of Lajares, The property is set in lush green volcanic gardens with open views over fields and extinct volcanoes. Lajares is a multicultural village set in the north of the island of Fuerteventura, midway between its main tourist resort of Corralejo, the quite Spanish village of Cotillo and the very small village of Majanicho.

A gem of a holiday home. Spacious, comfortable and with all the facilities we could want. Loved the swimming pool – warm, inviting, just perfect for an end of day swim.
This was our first stay in Lajares and we enjoyed the location – just a few minutes from the Lagoons at El Cotillo but also Corralejo. A short stroll into the village for an evening meal. This holiday home would merit discerning Fuerte lovers.
Had a wonderful holiday, the villa is beautiful. The swimming pool was great, overall a very relaxing holiday, quiet and peaceful will definitely recommend to friends and family.
Many thanks for a warm welcome to such a comfortable and well appointed apartment. The heated pool and the quiet location were the deciding factors in our choice of venue. We now know we made the right decisions and would not hesitate to recommend this to like minded couples.
Had a wonderful holiday. Apartment & pool was lovely and so nice to have it all to ourselves. We will be returning soon.

Great Holiday Great Property
Well I have stayed in Lajares on many occasions and this property is definitely one of the best I have stayed in. The owners are great and we had sole use of the pool throughout our stay. Everything you need is at the property and it is well worth exploring the cupboard in the hallway for a cool bag plus loads of other useful items. Only a 15 minute stroll into the centre of Lajares, a good number of bars and restaurants. Once again a great stay, Cliff
Peaceful and great location
We stayed her for a week in January and very much enjoyed our stay. Our hosts were welcoming and made us feel at home. The property has everything you would need and we had full use of the pool, which was very welcome.
The location is perfect for exploring the north of the island. Easy to get to the coast in whichever direction you choose. Some good walks direct from the property as well, if you like that kind of thing.The property is in a peaceful location and about 15 minute walk into Lajares, where there is a good selection of bars/restaurants etc plus a small supermarket.
Thoroughly recommend it for a quiet holiday.
We had a lovely holiday,peaceful and relaxing.The apartment and pool were spotless and had everything we needed.I would definitely recommend this apartment and would love to return in the future.
Rest & Recuperation
Everything listed about the property was absolutely spot on. The property was clean and in excellent condition and we couldn't have asked for more from the owner and his family. One minor criticism is that the bed could do with a new mattress. We would have no hesitation recommending this property to anyone looking for a good base to explore the island. Plenty of choice for bars and restaurants in Lajares and only 10 minutes away from El Cotillo with it's beautiful beaches or Corallejos with its miles of sandy beaches and nightlife. We will be back!
Fantastic Holiday retreat
This was our second visit to Martin and Sue's lovely apartment. Great secluded location yet only 10 minutes walk to the village. Every facility here you could want on holiday. The bars and restaurants in Lajares cater for all tastes, takeaway pizza is especially good. We liked Lajares so much we are in the process of buying a property there. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone, you will not be disappointed.
Quiet and peaceful apartment
The apartment is in a quiet and peaceful location yet around 10-15 minutes walk from the restaurants and shops in the village. It is very well-equipped and sole use of the pool is an added attraction. The garden and terrace are ideal for relaxing and enjoying the views of the surrounding hills and countryside. There are good walks from the front door, especially around one of the extinct volcanoes. Martin and Sue make you feel very welcome and are very helpful. We have now visited twice and plan to return again next year.
