Private Bungalow With Stunning Sea Views In Dramatic Landscape

Overview

Property

Updated: 22-Mar-2016
Villa in Famara, Lanzarote, Canary Islands - Peaceful Location, 1 Minute Walk From The Beautiful Famara Beach

In 2011 we bought this sweet bungalow, overlooking Playa Famara. We have changed most furniture into a contemporary style and the kitchen has new equipment. It is perfectly situated very close to the beach yet far enough to appreciate the stunning views. The patio has everything you can ask for including Sunbeds, lounge beds, dining table and BBQ.

The Village is calm and peaceful. The beach is 6km long so even though it is popular for surfers, sunners, sunbathers and so on, it is never crowded. The Famara village has a supermarket, a restaurant and a small spa. The neighbouring village of Caleta, is a sleepy fishing village a few minutes drive away and offers more restaurants and two small supermarkets. This place is perfect if you are a family or a small group of friends looking for a peaceful setting that offers a choice of outdoor activities such as surfing, biking, running, hiking or golf. Alternatively a perfect setting to relax and enjoy the sunshine with good food, wines and friends.

About the Owner

Hello!

My name is Annelie Telford. I own those Villas together with my husband Stefan. We are a couple from Stockholm, Sweden where we live and work, running restaurants.

We have been going on different kinds of surf vacations all over the world, but we kept coming back to Famara, where we bought our first house, Surfside Villa, in August 2011.

We love Famara so much, so we decided to by a second house, Beachside Villa, when we got a chance. We can now bring even more frinds over, and we will be able to offer another villa to our clients and guests, when one is occupied. We hope you will like this one to.

Warm regards Annelie & Stefan.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From Tripadvicer: We stayed in this nice Bungalow for two weeks. It was equipped with everything what we needed, everything what was described on the advertisement and everything in very good quality and clean.

We liked it very much there. It is a real quiet place. You can't hear anything else than the sound of the waves from the ocean. The beach is not far away (150 mtrs), it is not overcrowded. You can be really on your own there. We liked the outdoor shower very much. It is so helpful to have such a thing when the sun is burning and when you come back from the beach to get rid of the sand and the salt water from your skin.

The reception of the Urbanization Famara was everytime very friendly and helpful. You can reach every place of interest on the island in less than one hour by car. There are also walking tracks in the Famara mountains which are a bit challenging. You find supermarkets and restaurants nearby, also in the Urbanization itself. We had stayed longer if we could...

Wonderful retreat

  • 5 of 5

Lovely bungalow in a great location. So close to the beach and a treat to hear the waves at all times. Famara is the perfect location for relaxing and enjoying some scenery with fewer tourists around.

The beach is popular with surfers due to the great waves. Walk down to the right (North) of the beach at low tide, alongside mountains. It is beautiful.

Comfortable bungalow, spacious for two, will definitely be back! Very good facilities and equipment provided.

The owners are very helping in sending local info upon booking. Thank you Annelie and Stefan!

Will i underrate to keep it available...?

  • 5 of 5

We knew what we were looking for in Famara bay : far from the crowd, far from the shops, a direct and physical contact with the sand and the sea.

Caleta de Famera is a slow and cool fishermen and surfers village at the end of the road. The group of bungalows is part of the village, slightly apart. Ok, it's a touristic construction, but the only one, very low, made 40 years ago with a very bright integration to the landscape and if it didn't exist I probably would never had the chance to come around.

Anyway, there is nothing to explain : we could live there a year with the same rythm, barefeet from the house to the beach, daily kilometers of walks in the sand, no extra needs, a few vegetables, goat cheeses, olive oil and local wine we use to find in Caleta. Out of the world ? Yes, very close.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We (family of 4) loved the location, the beach and the dramatic landscape.

We had a lovely time discovering the island, mountain hiking, sightseeing and enjoying the local restaurants.

Convenient with the small supermercado in the bungalow area, fresh bread every morning!!!

Very nice and dedicated owner, we will definitely go back!

Surf side house

  • 5 of 5

This house had everything we needed, a complete kitchen and a very nice terass. We could hear the waves from the terass when relaxing or eating breakfast. It is a perfect place for surfing. We loved the beach and every morning did we walk along the lovely beach which is 6 km long.

Fantastick vill with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in Surf Side Villa and loved every second of it. The location is amazing: set in a national park against the dramatic backdrop of black mountains and front view of the ocean. Its a perfect spot for surfing, hiking, jogging or just a beach holiday. Several nice restaurants within walking distance but motsly we preferred to make use of the great BBQ and kitchen and dine on the terrace with fantastic views. The villa itself is the most wellkept property in the area, I already mentioned the perfect location. It has a modern and stylish décor with a great sense for details and you can tell the owners must really love this place (and are really great at interior design). Very well equipped and a beautiful villa to spend a great holiday. We will be back soon!

Fantastic villa!

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed very much staying at this beautiful modern villa where we had an amazing week. It is ideally located close to the beach and has fantastic views yet you have great privacy. If you enjoy surfing this is the perfect house at the perfect beach. The facilities were excellent and a lot of thought has been put into the design. I would highly recommend it for a great holiday to anyone, we will be going back later this year!

Location

From the Owner

We love Famara because of the great surf, stunningly beatiful beach and nature, the peacefullness and privacy combined with nearby restaurants and supermarkets that keps life simple if you don´t feel like doing a hole lot of planning. A Famaravacation can be what you want it to be, very active or completly tranquil, but if you want a party, you have to start it yourself! We really appriciate that it so easy to acess, only 30 min drive from the Arrecife Airport with it´s busy airtraffic from all over Europe. It´s as easy to acess as Playa Blanca or Honda or whatever chartertourismmagnet you can think of, yet a completly different world.

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

The Famara Beach is a one minute walk away from the bungalow. It is a 6km long, world famous surfbeach, voted "Best beach in Europe for watersports" by The Sunday Times. Bordride magazine named Lanzarote "The Hawaii of Europe" so if you for some strange reason should get fed up with Famara, you´d have other beaches nearby to look into.

Travel:

Airport Arricife is 30 minutes drive from Famara.

Distances:

Situated in Famara, 5 minutes drive from Caleta and 30 minutes drive from Arricife.

Further Details:

Lanzarote

Lanzarote is a "World Biosphere Reserve" and is famous around the world for being exo and adventure sports haven. The island has kept it´s charm with Canerian villages, national parks, limited development and a climate that will blow you away!

Exampel of leisure activities:

Surfing, running, kitesurfing, windsurfing, sailing, diving, hiking, cycling, tennis and golf.

Lanzarote has many exiting vineyards to visit of which Stratvs is one of the highly recommended.

Facilities

From the Owner

Normally you have to choose inbetween views and closness to the beach. If you are really close the sandbanks block the view, and give you a "ton" of sand in your terrace. Those bungalows are situated at the very spot were you get the best of out two worlds, 1 minute walk from the beach, views and not a hole lot of sand. Surfside Villa is also is on the last row of houses so it has the National Park as a neighbor on the right hand side. Perfectly situated acording to us. Another benefit is the Reception that take care of your enquirys and handles problems that might occur. They are the ones that give you a key at arrival, and they are opened daily at your service. They have been working with tourists for years and have a great knowledge of Lanzarote.
