Villa in Femes, Nr. Playa Blanca, Lanzarote, Canary Islands - Totally Private Villa in a Peaceful Location just 5 Mins Drive to the Beach
Casa Femes features 6 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms. All but 2 of the bathrooms are en-suite, and all the bedrooms are either twin or double. Additionally, the size of the bedrooms affords additional beds and cots. The villa offers stunning views of Playa Blanca and the shimmering Atlantic, and with the surrounding mountains and hills, is perfectly located for those who enjoy a good walk or hike. There is a large heated pool, plus a great barbie and typical Canarian seating to really enjoy the great weather and alfresco dining. The village of Femes is extremely charming and from the villa you can easily stroll to the local supermarket or try one of the many delicious restaurants. Refurbished in May 2010, Casa Femes is totally private and is a perfect base from which to enjoy the many charms of the island. Casa Femes is perfect for large families, separate families and groups or for those simply seeking peace and tranquility in a traditional rustic Lanzarote village.
About the Owner
Hello, my wife and I live just south of Girona in northern Spain. I am a Brit, she's a German and our little lad was born in Lanzarote! We lived on the island for several years before moving to the mainland to be closer to our families.
It is really beautiful here but we do miss the sun during the winter months and the relaxed lifestyle, and are fortunate to get back fairly frequently to the island.
Lanzarote is such a great holiday destination, with so much to do, or so little if you prefer. We really hope that you enjoy it. Saludos!

Great House BUT...
we stayed over New Year and the house is great: it is in a wonderful location, very private and very quiet with fantastic views and , for us, the wonderful ability to walk out of the drive and straight onto great mountain walks. There is plenty of space inside.
On the downside, outside there is a lack of shaded areas and in the height of summer this must be a problem. For example when full, there is nowhere shaded to eat outside. The house is meanly furnished. The outside furniture is all cheap plastic and not worthy of the quality of the property.
In the winter our problem was that at night the house was too cold. There was no wood provided for the stove and there was limited supply (two I recall) of small electric heaters. Worse there was no warm bedding and on the first day we had to buy duvets as well as firewood.
Hopefully since then they have rectified these errors, but I advise you to check.
If they have rectified these points it is a fabulous house for a large number of people
