Why Don Moore chose La Oliva

This property is located in a stunning yet tranquil location.

When you stand on the balcony at the back of the villa you can see volcanoes in the distance.....and to the north Playa Blanca in Lanzarote on the horizon.

You will catch you breath at the sheer beauty.....

What makes this unique

One of the most remarkable aspect of our villa is that is that quiet you can hear a hedgehog sneeze at 30 paces........

Come and enjoy!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Excellent holiday! The villa was like home from home - in fact the 2 bathrooms were bigger than our bathroom at home, comfortable, extremely well-equipped and beautifully furnished. The villa is ideally located near Lajares, in between El Cotillo and Corralejo. The unspoilt views from the villa are superb including the volcano in Lajares, and over to Lanzarote. Origo Mare is ideal for a complete get away and is quiet and relaxing. The pool was warm and well maintained, and we saw the maintenance men cleaning the pool and working on the beautiful gardens nearly every day. Most days we spent at the lagoons at El Cotillo. We climbed the volcano at Lajares, and we visited the caves at Villaverde – both of which are worth a visit.

Peaceful holiday getaway

  • 4 of 5

A spacious very well equipped, comfortable villa on the edge of a holiday complex with fantastic views. Pretty, private gardens at front and back of villa as well as first floor terrace mean there's always options for sun or shade. The villa was very clean with bath and beach towels provided. Good, helpful responses from local contact while there and owner before we left.

Lots to do and see, stunning scenery, fantastic beaches, we particularly liked El Cotillo. Make sure you climb the volcano near Lajares. There's a surfing beach very close by.

There are plenty of restaurants etc in nearby villages but none in the complex itself so you'll need a car, which is also good for exploring the island. The complex isn't fully finished so there may be places to eat in due course. The fact that the complex isn't finished didn't affect us in any way. We would definitely recommend this villa for a quiet, peaceful holiday.

Car: necessary


Majanicho beach is less than 10 minutes walk, while a 15 minute drive to the west is El Cotillo and its blue flag beaches. Whilst to the east again approx 15 minutes Corralejo and Flag beach.


Villa Gecko is approx 45 minutes drive from the airport and we strongly advise hiring a car. In order to ensure you get the best from your stay all our clients are personally met at the Villa by Rob our local representative. Origo Mare is easy to find. It is situated next to Lajares turn off by the football stadium keep driving for about 8-10 minutes. You will see Origo Mare on your left surrounded by stunning landscape. If you require meeting at the airport, we can arrange that for you.


Villa Gecko is situated 9km north of Lajares, roughly equidistant between El Cotillo and Corralejo in the north of the island.

Further Details:

Lajares is only a 5 minute drive and offers good local shops including a bank and a highly recommended French bakery for fresh bread, sandwiches and croissants. A well stocked supermarket for all your needs. Or for those who prefer to eat out then they are many good local restaurants both in Lajares and nearby El Cotillo or Corralejo.

There are a host of water based activities available including wind surfing, kite surfing and diving. If you have children then why not visit Baku Water Park in Corralejo. Betancuria located high up in the hills on the FV30 is well worth a visit if for no other reason than spectacular views as you wind your way up along the edge of the mountains to reach it.
