About the property

Villa in El Roque, Nr. El Cotillo, Fuerteventura, Canary Islands - Peaceful, Rural Location but Close To El Cotillo Beaches

Villa Aurora is a rustic modern-built L-shaped villa situated on the north east edge of the small village of El Roque and just a few minutes drive from El Cotillo and its beaches. It stands on a plot of 1400 sq metres surrounded with a dry stone wall, there are magnificent views to the sea and surf to the west and nothing but open countryside all the way to the north coast beaches and the lighthouse, 'El Toston'. The hills of Lanzarote can be seen to the north east. The villa has two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a large (20m x 4.8m) open plan living area with large windows for all round views. All rooms open to the patio which has a 6m x 3m pool for the very hot days. There is an upstairs lounge, that has all round views, with a small terrace. This location is ideal for walking on the flat volcanic landscape and in the hills to the south. It is very peaceful.

Why David Phillips chose La Oliva

Have been going to Fuerteventura for 15 years, found El Cotillo and its fabulous beaches and did not want to go anywhere else. El Roque is quiet and peaceful.

Photos don't do it justice

  • 5 of 5

This is a well appointed 2 bedroom villa with an excellent "morning room" upstairs from which you can see sunrise and sunset. The pool is not heated but was 24 deg C and very refreshing after a hot day.

We had a wonderful holiday and full intend to return next year.

The location requires a car in my view as the nearest shops, restaurants etc are in El Cotillo a mile away, or Lahares about 3.5 miles and Correlejo about 20 minutes drive away.

Great house, lovely 360 view.

  • 5 of 5

This house is great! You need a car because it's in walking distance of restaurants or shops, but if you go to Fuerteventura you have to explore the island and need a car anyway. The first days we had no sun and strong winds. At the terrace you can sit outside and the wind will not bother you. The pool is lovely, because staying at the beach is not always easy because of strong winds. The house has all the facilities you need and is only 30 minutes from correlejo. El Cotillo is not a very cozy village, but there's a supermarket where you can buy all you need and it's only two minutes by car.

I almost forgot to mention that you can have a 360 view at the naturepark and sea if you are in the house and on the terrace.

We had a great time! Thank you David.

Owner's Response: Thank you for a lovely review so glad you enjoyed your time there. El Cotillo has expanded in recent years but the lagoons on the way to the lighthouse are still as special as ever.

Ideal Villa Beautiful Spot

  • 5 of 5

This is a really comfortable and well equipped villa. Very spacious, and in a lovely quiet spot. There were only two of use, but with four there would still be plenty of room. Set on the edge of the village it is not overlooked and has really good views, particularly from the upstairs lounge. At night amazing display of stars to look at. Really useful to be able to open all of the patio doors from the lounge and the bedrooms onto the patio and pool area. The pool is also a nice size, and able to swim in it so not just a splash pool. As this area has full sun from late morning to sun set, the pool was well used. Overall very good and highly recommended if you want a nice quite stay, but within easy reach of El Cotillo village, the beach and lagoons area.

Holiday Fun in the Sun

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for you for another wonderful holiday in your villa for our family holiday, september had amazing weather so the beach in such close proximity and the pool in the afternoon was heaven. Dave enjoyed the surfing beach and the near by village of El Cotillo ran kite surfing from their harbour for him. Jack 18months and i loved the lagoons and white sands to play safely.

We BBQ most nights and dined in the outside room, which offered all bits needed, the supermarkets selection was great. We went to the larger town of Correllejo to eat at the weekends in the square with live music which we all enjoyed immensely.

Can't wait for next year

Beautiful Villa with all home comforts

  • 5 of 5

Dear David and Dorice, we wanted to say thank-you for making our holiday in your Villa a relaxing and lovely holiday. Aurura is a beautiful villa with all the amenities needed to make it a 'home from home' for us. The pool is a great size for swimming and playing around in with the surroundings of your lovely garden and the sea in the distance. Having breakfast on the terrace from the upstairs sun room and watching the sun go down is wonderful. We look forward to our next stay. Gemma & Jason
