About BENITO GONZALEZ
My wife, two children and myself live next door to the villa. We love it here and wouldnt live anywhere else, for the peace and quiet, and beautiful weather are incomparable.
BENITO GONZALEZ purchased this chalet in 2013
Why BENITO GONZALEZ chose La Oliva
Its very tranquil and safe, doors can be left open as there is no crime in El Roque. The locals are so friendly, and the climate we can enjoy all year on Fuerteventura.

Can't add much to previous reviews, in complete agreement. Lovely place to stay; the peace and privacy we were hoping for. Despite the language barrier, communication was easy throughout and all emails prior to arrival were replied to promptly. Thanks Benito and family
Pleasant villa in a quiet location
Villa was clean. Kitchen very well equipped including, sandwich toaster, juicer and hand blender - ideal for making smoothies. When we were there the lime tree and passion fruit tree in the garden were in fruit and were a tasty addition to the smoothies. There is no oven (hob only) which is common in village Villas. The bath is very small but the good showers make up for it. Bed comfortable. Benito was helpful and sorted out our internet problem - we were using incorrect password (first letter of the password is Z which is written differently in Spanish). The internet was fast.
Location was great 5 minutes drive (about 15 walking) to the El Cotillo supermarket for fresh bread every morning. you can also walk or walk/cycle (cycles included in Villa) to the El Cotillo lagoon beaches - takes about 45 minutes walking mostly on traffic free road/path so we could enjoy the wildlife ( can also drive it in 10 minutes). If you want a quiet holiday away from the crowds then this is ideal. Be aware there is no DVD player and the TV is in Spanish and German - you may want to download movies to your laptop to watch here. Pool and jacuzzi are clean but not heated - we found them a little too cold in January but should be warm enough at other times of the year.
Peaceful location, thoughtful provision, excellent facility.
We had a short break here in April. We loved the house and the friendly owner. We were left entirely to do as we pleased but were clear that we could call on Benito if we needed anything at all. The house is very clean and well equipped, although the fresh water cooler, peace and a large pool were the things we appreciated most. The terrace with pizza oven, barbecue, bar, dining table and really comfortable seats was a great spot to relax. Town is a cycle away. It's perhaps a 3 minute drive to the supermarket, 5 minutes to excellent restaurants (we liked the vaca azul), 10 minutes to lagoons near the lighthouse. I wished we'd had a longer break and strongly recommend this house. Thank you Benito!
A lovely, clean and well equipped villa in a quiet location and well placed to explore this wonderful island.
The facilities were very good and in good repair. Very clean, lots of bed linen and towels. Pool crystal clear and the owner obviously tends it well. Benito is very friendly and helpful even with our lack of Spanish!
I would love to stay agian very soon and recommend to couples or small families. The area if very suitable for those who enjoy water sports due to the reliable surf.
This was our 4th stay on the island and the best yet. It is easy to drive around but even in the locality are some beautful beaches though Cortillo is not for swimming generally. Some excellent restaurants and stunning scenery. Check out the little harbour at El Cortillo where there is a great fish restuarant.
Local supermarket has a wide range of goods. They do not like you to use large bank notes!
A brilliant, brilliant, property!!!
Very well located between El Cotillo (lovely, lagoon beach, great eats:- Punta Del 'Est, Central and a good supermarket) and Lajares (recommended eats 722 Gradi and Canela Cafe, a better supermarket too).
Spotlessly clean and well equipped.
Friendly and helpful owners, gave us free use of bikes and replaced the water in the cooler throughout our holiday.
They live nextdoor if you need anything, but the chalet is completely private.
The outdoor space is amazing, huge covered verandah, private pool and jacuzzi, set in a large, beautiful, volcanic gardens.
The bed is a good size and comfortable. There is secure car parking and free WiFi.
The bathroom is very small, but there is a good outdoor shower.
No oven in the kitchen.
This is a lovely, rural location, you will need a car.
We had 3 lovely weeks here and would not hesitate to return.
A big thank you to Benito and his family.
Fantastic chalet/Villa Everything very clean and tidy, Charcoal firelighters etc provided for BBQ wood supplied for outside oven, never short of any kitchen or picnic equipment, toaster,toasted sandwich maker, coffee machine, kettle and hob (no oven inside) Lovely patio/garden area pool and jacuzi (cold) outside shower better that indoor. Great out side covered eating area, huge table. Secluded very local little hamlet, 20-30 min walk into cotillio for dinner so we could both have a drink and walk off our yummy dinner. Benito showed us a great Tapas bar that we frequented and the vaca Azul restraunt was fabulous. Lovely french coffee shop and great little ice cream parlour. We had a great time. One part of Fuerteventura that is unspoilt and uncommercialised.
You really do need directions to get there, we arrived late, pulled off the road at the correct place but from there Benito came to find us! Fab Holiday will deffinately go again

Activity and Interests
Special interest holidays:
This island has a variety of traditional "fiestas" throughout the year, but the villages of El Roque and Cotillo have one of the most-visited and popular fiestas, held in August.
The beaches of Cotillo are just 1km away. There are beautiful white sand beaches without waves ("the lagoons") which are ideal for children. Cotillo is also home to one of the best beaches for water-sports, famous for its waves and favourable wind conditions. Worth mentioning that Naturist bathing is common in Fuerteventura.
The airport is 43km from El Roque. The nearest ferry port is in Corralejo with connections to Lanzarote. Car hire is recommended.
El Roque is very well-connected, just 1KM from El Coillo with banks, bars and restaurants specialising in fresh fish from the area, small shops, water-sport equipment rental and classes. 5km away is Lajares with Chemist, bars, traditional craft shops. The biggest resort, Corralejo is 20 mins away by car with a full range of tourist activities (including water-park) and night life. Corralejo also links by ferry to Lanzarote.
In El Roque there is a horse-riding centre offering pleasant walks, in Cotillo facilities to learn water-sports from professionals, or stroll by the fisherman's port & watch them bring in the daily catch. Like a lot of parts of the island there are specialist cycling paths.
