Overview

About the property

Villa in Puerto del Carmen, Lanzarote, Canary Islands - Quiet Residential Area, Less than 10 Mins to New Golf Course, Only 5 Mins Walk to Beach

Villa Darcy is a private villa situated in the popular Las Villas area. It stands in its own grounds with a private 'walled' garden and pool area offering complete privacy. The pool is heated electrically, please ask for this service when quoting as there is an additional charge for this. The property is just five minutes walk from the main coast road where you will find restaurants, shops and bars. The first shop you come to is the supermarket for all of your day to day needs. Opposite you will find a small beach, but turn left and you will find Los Pocillos where you can try the water sports, or alternatively, turn right and head for the main beach with its sunbathing and more family orientated entertainment. A 10 minute drive inland brings you to, first, Rancho Texas, an American themed park with wild animals, bird displays, red Indian village and much more. Try the line Dancing in the evening for fun. Then the golf course; newly opened it is receiving exceptional reviews. Full TV package and Wi-Fi available upon request.

Excellent Villa , Good Location

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my wife Stayed at Villa Darcy for two weeks 25th May - 8th June 2017

We had a fantastic time and the villa has everything we needed. Located very close to local shops, bars and beach Villa Darcy is ideal for both couples and families as it is very well equipped with two bathrooms, three bedrooms and an ample kitchen and living area. The villa has everything you will need for a relaxing stay in Lanzarote. The villa gets the sun all day and there are plenty of areas to sunbathe. We used the pool on a daily basis to cool off and we did not need it heated as this is an option. Wi -Fi is excellent and good if you need to do some online excursion planning or booking etc. All in all an excellent villa at a very reasonable price. Thanks to Louise for allowing us a late departure due to an evening flight

Great location & super villa

  • 5 of 5

Louise who we booked with was very good. Anything we requested got attended to. We requested new sun loungers and they arrived. Inside of villa is clean but more attention is needed around pool area and the pool itself. Despite the pool man coming twice, he never seemed to be able to properly vacuum the bottom of the pool. Overall I would definitely book again.

Lovely well equipped villa in great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely family holiday. The villa was well equipped, we had lots of meals in & the kitchen was well equipped for this, only prob was having to wash the pots.

The beds were comfy & looks like new sofa etc have been bought & they were very comfy too.

Louise was very good & although we didn't meet her she was very helpful before our arrival. Our youngest child was just under 1 when we went & arranged with Louise for cot, highchair & stairgate which were all great & of very good quality.

The bedding for beds & cot were nice & was lovely to have duvets on bed.

The villa was very nice & in a great location, we had a lovely holiday & would definitely return to the villa.

Location

Car: not necessary

Coast/Beach:

Beaches in Puerto del Carmen can be reached by walking. The nearest beach to the villa is within 5 minutes walking distance, whilst the furthest beach would take approximately 30 minutes to walk to. 15/20 mins will take you to los pocillos which offers a range of water sports. The same amount of time in the other direction takes you to the main sunbathing beach, whilst in the harbour area (approx 30 mins) there is a small beach with scuba diving school. All have plenty of sunbeds and showers.

Travel:

There is only one airport on the island and that is Arrecife Airport. It is approximately 7/10 minutes drive from the villa, although a car is not essential as local taxis are available all the time. They are efficient, on time and relatively inexpensive. Due to the exchange rates at the moment about 15 euros.

Distances:

It is possible to book trips to see the island but hire a car for 3 days and you can see all the island easily. A must is Timanfaya national park and the Volcanoes. Take the trip around the top of the volcanoes by bus. See also Jameos del Agua and Cuevos Verdes, walk out under the sea in the caves. Try El golfo, the green lagoon, and the Sunday market at Teguise. Go for lunch at Puerto Calero, take some bread and feed the fish in the marina if you have children, they will be fascinated.

Further Details:

When looking for a good deal on changing your sterling the local duty free shops usually have the best rate. Don't scrimp on car hire though. Best deals are the safest as the cars are regularly maintained and fully insured, try Cabrera Medina. Always carry passport or photo card when driving and remember that drink driving laws apply here as at home. The supermarket on the corner is ideal for all your daily requirements and is not too expensive, beware some other shops, try to steer clear of your favourite English brands as they are particularly expensive at the moment. Remember that as this is a duty free island, customs regulations apply. 200 cigarettes and 1 litre of drink. Restaurants are a matter of taste and there are certainly lots to choose from. If you are watching the pennies all restaurants should serve a dish of the day with a starter and a pudding at a special price although these are easier to find in the little Spanish restaurants rather than the big flash ones. Try the back streets for local cuisine for a change.
