Guestbook comments from the owner

'Delightful villa in an excellent location. A wonderful opportunity for total chill-out and relaxation.'

'We have been visiting Fuerteventura for 20 years and this is the best accommodation ever. We hope to stay many more times in the future.'

'Returning to Casa Aviva was just what we hoped. Our 2 weeks have flown by. Fuerte is still a magical place and Casa Aviva has already become like a 'home from home'! A place we would all love to visit time and time again. If only we could take the 28 degrees and sunshine back with us!'

Casa Aviva - A Gem

  • 5 of 5

Casa Aviva is a home-away-from-home, first class in every way. Spacious, attractive, well maintained and spotlessly clean, this 3-bedroom 2-bathroom two-story home is on a large plot at the end of a lane way. A comfortable and quiet venue to relax indoors and out. The kitchen and adjacent dining room are so well equipped. The detailed description on OwnersDirect is very accurate, and there are some delightful bonus surprises. The library, CD’s and DVD’s, and TV were much appreciated, and the guest book most interesting.

Great care has been taken with this home, and the large very private garden is no exception. Heated pool with tile surrounds and a pergola at the shallow end, two tiled patios adjacent to the house wonderful for dining and sipping beverages, and varied attractive plantings throughout. Generous outdoor furniture including loungers, with cushions kept indoors.

The town of Lajares is a 5-minute drive with good amenities. Internet is available at cafes/bars as the house as yet does not have this. Robin mentioned a dongle could be purchased and used there, but we did not do so (limited need as we were truly holidaying).

Of our 8-week, 6-island trip, Casa Aviva was the ultimate quality stay. Definitely would recommend to family and friends.

El Cotillo
Car: necessary


About 10 minutes drive away to the south of El Cotillo is a extremely long sandy beach, where surfing/windsurfing/kite boarding takes place. Swim with great care to avoid breakers and any undertow. To the north there is an extensive sheltered lagoons area with white sand and crystal clear water, suitable for child and adult swimming. The extensive world renowned sand dunes and Natural Park on the east coast, south of Corralejo, are about a 15/20 minute drive time away.


Lajares is an easy 38km drive from Fuerteventura Airport. Car hire is not absolutely essential, but is strongly recommended to make the most of the island and your holiday. There are a host of hire car companies on the island, the majority of which have offices in the main airport building. Booking prior to arrival is highly advisable.


El Cotillo, a small former fishing village on the west (Atlantic) coast, is about 10 minutes drive away. It contains a number of shops, and a large number of eating places. Corralejo, the tourist town on the north of the island, offers all the shops, eating facilities and nightlife that tourists look for. It is also the Port from which various marine related outings can be arranged, and fast ferry catamaran services to/from nearby Lanzarote can be taken advantage of.

Further Details:

The village of Lajares includes a new small supermarket, French bakery, delicatessen, newsagent, ironmonger, pharmacy, hairdresser and surf shop (with internet cafe). In addition there are a number of good eateries.
