About the property

Villa in Puerto del Carmen, Lanzarote, Canary Islands - Spacious And Comfortable Family Villa With Ample Terraces, Close To Local Amenities And Beaches


Check in time - Normally after 2pm

Check out time - 10:30am

La Cancela Verde was built by the present owners to a very high specification. The design was by a renowned designer who worked with Cesar Manrique on a number of projects on the island. The house reflects many features of the island architecture. The villa is located on a private development of three individual villas, all separated by substantial gardens and a traditional house nearby. The villa is in an elevated position, overlooking untended farmland commanding panoramic views of the sea, the islands of Lobos and Fuerteventura to the south-west and the mountains of Femes to the West. The south-westerly aspect offers clients sunshine from dawn to dusk on the ample terraces and armchair views of the splendid scenery. The villa is easily reached by the main trunk road from the airport - a journey of 20 minutes by car and is on the outskirts of the village of Puerto del Carmen which is five minutes by car and close to the attractive yacht marina at Puerto Calero.

About Julia

La Cancela Verde was our private residence before we moved to mainland Spain. We were instrumental in creating quality villa holidays on the island since 1972 and managed 1000 beds in various developments of apartments and villas. Our tour operator, (now part of First Choice), set the standard for quality villa holidays and our management company offered a high standard of service for many years. Our company built the villa in 1979 and we have looked after it with care over the years and continually upgrade and improve the facilities. We often visit to relax and enjoy the peace and unsurpassed views that the villa offers. Many of our clients come back to stay year after year and we listen to their comments and recommendations which are always helpful.

What makes this villa unique

La Cancela Verde has an elegance and charm that modern properties cannot match. It also has unsurpassed views that many have said offer the best grandstand seat on the island. It is difficult to disagree.

The location offers convenience yet seclusion. One can walk from the villa to the village and yet one is in the country and there are no closely adjoining properties. Since we built all the villas in the vicinity we ensured each one's privacy. The villa occupies 500 sq metres in gardens of half an acre and this space and the clever design afford privacy for all our guests - there is always a quiet spot at any time of the day as the sun moves around the terraces. The villa has enormous character and comfort and is warm in the winter and cool in the summer due to its solid construction.

La Cancela Verde is a lovely comfortable relaxing villa with beautiful unobstructed views and well maintained large gardens. It benefits from having different areas outside where you can sit in shade or sunshine throughout the day. The outdoor barbeque is large with a good sheltered seating area alongside.

The villa is well maintained throughout and the managers are friendly and respond quickly and efficiently to any enquiries.

The setting is peaceful and the gardens look out to sea towards the island of Fuerteventura to the south and the hills and volcanoes to the west. The villa is within quite easy walking distance of the many bars and restaurants in the old town and port area of Puerto Del Carmen and this can be achieved on well lit and well paved side roads with little or no traffic.

We first visited La Cancela Verde 15 years ago and were very happ

Fantastic home in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this villa over Easter 2016.

Excellent facilities, plenty of room, clean and well maintained.

The villa is very large and there were plenty of different areas to sit during the day to get the most of the sun. Loved the new outdoor shower area, it was a great addition to the villa.

The location was ideal, not too close to the town centre but within walking distance and because of this the views from the villa were amazing.

We really enjoyed out stay at this villa and as a result we are returning next Easter.

Paradise !

The villa was absolutely wonderful.So spacious,clean and well maintained. Suzana was there on our arrival to help us settle in and show us where everything was,she was so sweet and kind ,a pleasure to be in her company.

The views from the villa where spectacular especially at sunset,as was the new outside shower.You could look at the sea when you were having your morning shower,amazing!!

There was a restaurant less than 5 minutes from the villa that did the most wonderful steaks,try the t bone,you won't be disappointed!

To sum up this villa was one of the best we have stayed in and we have stayed in quite a few. Lanzarote is a fasinating island to explore with plenty of activities for all ages,even a trip on a submarine.Excellent location of the villa made it very easy to see everything we wanted to. Perfect.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at La Cancela Verde and found the villa to be in a good location with easy access to the local attractions. We like to keep it to the highest standard for our guests. The neighbouring restaurant is one of the best on the island so for that, we - and our clients - are very lucky! We hope to welcome you back.
