About Andrew & Katherine

We spend all year racing round the world working in all climates and conditions at a moments notice.

Pangur-Bán is a sanctuary to re-balance and re-connect with family. We spent years searching the world for this place and fell in love with it immediately. The serenity, the sanctuary the feel-good factor is remarkable. This Home from Home combines all we love but could never find in one place, Sun, Sea, Swimming, Surfing, Snorkelling, Diving, Sailing, Sanctuary and Security, and a year round season within easy reach of Europe.

Andrew & Katherine purchased this villa in 2015

Why Andrew & Katherine chose La Oliva

We searched for three years seeing dozens of properties in all areas on each visit. We didn't think much of Pangur-Bán's pictures but felt we had nothing to loose by seeing this one last property before racing to the plane.

The moment entered the front door and inner courtyard, we were struck! From room to room I could not believe how well Pangur-Bán was laid out, designed, and constructed. Every component was chosen with the German Architect by the very tasteful and meticulous previous owners. Construction was by a team of German builders - perfectly and precisely completed, no corners were cut and no detail missed. I was impressed that so many world class components had been shipped in from Europe, Grohe taps & showers, Miele & Siemens appliances, windows and french doors made by G-U and double glazed with Isolar heat reflecting glass, 100% light blocking shutters, sun shields on all south facing windows. We also have colour changing underwater lights, you can even choose your favourite colour or colour sequence just for fun in the evenings.

What makes this villa unique

The property is situated a few hundred meters from the heart of Lajares at the foot of the twin volcanoes. Central between the beaches on the North, East and West coast. Lajares has become a centre point for beach, outdoor activities, and culture so whatever your interest you are at the heart of everything that's going on allowing a fresh choice each day.

The weather and heat is moderated throughout the year giving a year round season warm enough to get a tan even at Christmas.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The pictures you have up while very nice, in no way does justice to your spectacular home and garden. It really has the woo factor.We enjoyed 5*comfort, peace, tranquility and beautiful weather. We very much appreciated your dedicated personal care on our first visit to Fuerteventura. We cant wait for our next stay at your lovely villa. Your very first guests J & H Macklin



We had a fantastic time in your villa, didn't want to leave. Your thoughtful extras made it home from home.



We had a fantastic stay in your house, which is simply superb. It is obvious that you spent a lot of time & money to realize it as it is, but the result is, I repeat myself, fantastic. Thanks for your hospitality. Josette & Pierre.



Your home is the most luxurious & comfortable we have ever stayed in

Fantastic and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Very relaxing has everything you need for a villa holiday. If you want nightlife and bars on your doorstep then not the place for you, but if you want total relaxation with a few lovely restaurants not far then this is totally for you. The property has a beautiful central court yard in the middle and the pool and outside area is large and well maintained. Dentifenty would go again and recommend it.

Great property in quiet area

  • 4 of 5

Great villa in a secluded spot on the edge of a new development on the edge of the village. The facilities at the villa are first class, all kitchen equipment is provided. The pool being heated was a required and justified additional expense. The master bedroom had a damp feel to it, I think being at a dark corner of the building along with it being early in the season and still "winter" may have contributed to this. Showers warm and powerful. Outside and inside furnishings of good quality and very well presented. The Sat TV has limited channels, we only watched SKY News as all others were "not to out taste or language" internet is ok during the day but useless at night as it's sooooo slooow, maybe due to other users in the local network. The village has a supermarket that will meet all of your requirements, the bakers across the road has fantastic coffee coisants and fresh bread, the pirates diner is frequented by locals and has good food and good value, give 722 a miss.... overpriced.

Very pleasant holiday Villa

  • 5 of 5

This is an interesting villa in a quiet and pleasant setting. The garden and courtyard are particularly good with many lovely plants which is a joy to experience.

We found a good selection of restaurants within a 15 minute drive. Lajares and surround areas are offer many interesting and lovely winter walks which we enjoyed.

Pangur Ban

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, well appointed villa in a quiet location. The layout and central courtyard is lovely and affords a high level of privacy. The garden is well laid out and is planted with an interesting selection of shrubs and succulent plants. The pool and patio area at the rear is very spacious and offers a very pleasant sheltered area in which to relax and dine with plenty of sunny and shady sheltered areas. There is a small supermarket in Lajares which should cater for most peoples culinary needs - although don't expect the same selection and variety of fresh vegetables you get in your local Sainsbury's! The kitchen is well equipped and has a very nice induction hob amongst other things. For those of you who enjoy cooking, I would recommend you take a knife sharpener! (We bought a cheap kitchen knife in the local supermarket for about €3).

Overall - highly recommended.

Spacious, high quality villa in a lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

We loved the peaceful and private setting of this villa. Perfect for getting away from it all. The villa really had everything you need and if you didn't want to, there was no need to leave it for the whole week! There was plenty of space with all rooms having their own access from the courtyard which made it ideal if you are a group, a large family with kids of different ages or a couple of families together. There was also plenty of room in the outdoor spaces which is where you really want be, whether for lounging in the sun, in the shade or for eating together and as pointed out in the description everything is high quality. Everything was spotlessly clean too. The pool was a good size if you want to do a little more than just splash around and nice and deep. We were lucky enough that the solar water heating kept the water plenty warm enough but extra heating was available if not. Oh and there were plenty of towels which makes a real difference when you are constantly wet all day! We must also give a special mention to Pru (a really sweet, beautiful cat) - she really added a special something to the villa as it was quite obviously her home. We hope everyone loves her just as much as we did...

Lajares is already one of our favourite spots so we know the area well - the village is small but has everything you need for shops or a cosy dinner. If you are more used to a town though and spending every day at the beach you will definitely need a car but the village is well placed for all these if you have one. Do make the effort to walk the volcano trail. The official path starts from the main Majanicho road just north of 722° (lovely for sitting with a drink in the evening sun!). Once you been up to look at the crater be brave and search for the path that takes you back west behind the volcanoes, this brings you back to the starting point and makes a fantastic walk to kick start a day lounging by the pool!

We would definitely recommend the villa and would like to go back again ourselves one day...

Quiet & Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Very quiet and relaxing location, the villa is very well equipped with everything you need, especially if you plan to eat in.

A car is a must, you can walk into town but I'd suggest driving especially once it gets dark as navigating the lanes can be confusing.

Fantastic family friendly beaches around El Cotillo (turn right before you get to the lighthouse). Corralejo is very Brits abroad but if you head towards the old town it improves.

Make sure you get up early for a walk up the volcano behind the villa, we walked straight towards it from the end of the road outside the villa, a bit rocky but you'll hit the main footpath after about 5-10 minutes. If you're lucky you might meet the goats taking shelter in the volcano!!!
