This newly refurbished property for summer 2012 in the beautifully kept, clean and tidy village of Charco del Palo in the north of the island, a few minutes by car from Costa Teguise. Charco del Palo is a unique village where naturists and non-naturists live happily side by side. The property is one of 10 on a small private complex with a great pool and lush green gardens. The property is open plan living with kitchen, dining room and lounge with front and rear terraces perfect for alfresco dining, private sunbathing and outdoor enjoyment. Upstairs are two bedrooms one double and one twin including a large dressing area. The village is a wilderness intact with amazing views of the sea and waves crashing against volcanic rocks, but at the same time it is totally possible to enjoy bathing in the naturally filling rock pools, just moments from your villa. Alternatively, simply hop in the complex pool just 5 steps from your front door and relax in the beautiful surroundings.
We are a family with international flavour. Half Norwegian, half English. We have a brood of five children spanning from ages 18 to 8 years old. We rent properties that have been our families homes and have extensive experience in renting property in general. We work as hard as possible with our team to ensure you have the best holiday. If we don't think our house is what you're looking for we will suggest something else, even if it's not ours. We work in several other countries as well. We speak English, Norwegian, French, and Spanish.
The apartment was lovely - in a small complex. Wonderful to sit on the bedroom balcony with a cup of tea in the morning and look out towards the sea. It was very quiet and peaceful and we had the pool to ourselves. The apartment was spacious and comfortable. Our only complaint would be very unreliable TV reception but wi-fi was good. We loved the village of Charco del Palo and had a couple of good and very reasonable meals in one of the local restaurants - Cueva Paloma. Not haute cuisine but lovely fresh fish, pleasant service and friendly atmosphere. You definitely need a car but nowhere is very far away and driving about is easy. We will certainly return.
It didn't start well, as Fiona didn't have us booked in! So our holiday began with us appearing to break in, searching for the key (keep reading, it gets better!). Luckily Jackie, local housekeeper/barwoman extraordinaire appeared at that moment and sorted it all out with Fiona on the phone. We made our own beds and it was all a bit confusing on arrival, but the red wine Fiona sent later as an apology helped! Pool is unheated and too cold for me this time of year. However, once we grew accustomed to our quiet village, with just the sound of the palm trees rustling , the pigeons coo-ing in the trees, sunsets over the volcanic craters, we began to fall in love with the place. You definitely need a car, an open mind if you're not a naturist (we're not but we did get our kit off eventually: I recommend it and the international naturist community here is very friendly), and a willingness to self cater as there is only one pub and one restaurant in the village, food average. The local supermarket meets most of your needs though and other places to shop and eat are within easy driving distance. Try 'El Lago' in Punta Mujeres for excellent seafood. We had a great time, and will be back next January! Muchas gracias.
We have just returned from a lovely holiday in Lanzarote, which is a great island to visit, particularly in the north where it is very unspoilt.
The village of Charco del Palo is a great place to stay if you like peace and quiet,. It is a very easy going resort, with great rock pools for the odd dip and sandy areas for sunbathing. There are 4 bars/restaurants in the village which are within easy walking distance of the villa.
The villa we stayed at was excellent, it was in a small complex
which is very well tended and the swimming pool is great. When we were there we had the pool to ourselves every time we used it.
If you enjoy walking, and the weather is not too hot!, there are some great walks along the coast and up into the hills.
If you intend visiting much on the island you would need to hire a car as there little public transport in the immediate area. But driving is good and the roads are generally excellent. Most of the best attractions are within easy driving distance, are low key and well worth a visit.
When we return to Lanzarote we will certainly have this villa at the top of our list for places to stay.
