About Gill Holmes

We (The Owners) are Gary and Gill purchased our lovely villa in Playa Blanca. (May 2013)

Gary is a wheelchair user and we find the area very disabled friendly and although he can walk short distances everything is so convenient at the villa.

Gill Holmes purchased this villa in 2013

Why Gill Holmes chose Lanzarote

Playa Blanca is a lovely upmarket resort in Lanzarote we love the fact it has all year round sunshine the area is very safe with lots to do and lots of really good restaurants

What makes this villa unique

We love the area of Faro Park it is so convenient the local bus is wheelchair accessible so a trip into Playa is so easy even if you don't hire a car

Our villa really is home from home with our lovely heated pool and outdoor dining areas and is attractively furnished throughout with comfortable beds

The local restaurants in Faro Park (English, Italian, Spanish, a Tapas bar, and a chicken take awayshop well as a couple of bars and a cocktail bar are all really good and with 2 supermarkets one of which is open until midnight it couldn't be better

We have had a path laid that makes access into the villa so easy with the wheelchair

Lovely Villa

  • 5 of 5

Lovely villa with beautiful and well thought out garden and pool area with the waterfall , so many different places to relax .. a credit to the owners.

Beautiful sea walk into Playa Blanca ..First time in Playa Blanca but will return

Although villa quite a distance from Playa Blanca if you do not have a car...there is a bus No:30 at the end of shops in Faro Park which is great goes every half hour ..quarter past and quarter to ..the taxi service in Playa Blanca is just brilliant

There are a few restaurants in Faro Park if you do not wish to go into Playa Blanca The Port of Call is very good ..

Enjoyed a trip to La Graciosa by Catamaran good experience food and drink included ...beautiful beach and clear blue water ..

A worder full spacious villa

  • 5 of 5

A lovely village within easy reach of shops and bars and 5 minutes in the car from Playa Blanca. We found the welcome pack very useful. The beds were the most comfy beds i'very slept in on holiday. The sun loungers were great too. We found the TV package great (especially as I was ill so my hubby used this alot) very clean and spacious. Would recommend to friends and family

Excellent Villa with a Lovely Pool area

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from spending two weeks at this excellent villa and may I say what a lovely time we had. The villa was perfect for the 3 of us. The bedrooms were comfortable, the lounge and kitchen had everything we needed (and more) for the little time we spent in either, but the pool area is the major attraction in my view. The pool itself is just that little bit different from other villas we have stayed in and the waterfall feature sets it off really well, the seating areas are ideal to soak up some sun and enjoy the odd BBQ.

A car is recommended but certainly not essential. The local buses work well but the walk along the sea front is something you must do. Its 20-30 mins to a collection of restaurants that includes Sebastyans (Greek food but a personal favourite), then its another 20-30 mins into Playa Blanca and if you are really up for the challenge another 10-15 mins further to the Marina Rubicon. Im certainly not that active but to walk in the sea air and to watch the sun disappear whilst stopping occasionally for a drink or two is not a bad way to spend a few hours.

Romantica is another restaurant id recommend in Playa Blanca and so too La Katedral (also in Playa Blanca and excellent for Tapas).

Id have no hesitation in going back to Playa Blanca and certainly not to this villa. I only just wish I was there now enjoying the time with family and soaking up the sun.

Location

From the Owner

Playa Blanca is a lovely upmarket resort in Lanzarote we love the fact it has all year round sunshine the area is very safe with lots to do and lots of really good restaurants

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Arrecife at 36 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Lounge Bar at 75 Metres Nearest Restaurant : La Flamenca at 75 Metres Nearest Beach : Playa Flamingo at 3 Kilometres Car: not necessary

Special interest holidays:

A 5 minute walk from the villa will bring you to the fabulous sight of crashing white waves over the rocks. There are many rock pools.The nearest large white sandy (family friendly) beach is a five minute drive or a short bus ride to Playa Flamingo. The Papagayo beaches which are within 15 minutes drive and are safe sandy beaches so there is plenty of opportunity for swimming and diving as well as snorkelling.

The local bus goes to both beaches as well as the lovely Rubicon Marina with its great restaurants and a market on Wednesdays and Saturdays

There are a number of dive schools in Playa Blanca offering dive experiences, courses and guided boat and shore dives daily are: Dive College, Rubicon Diving, and Dawn Dives Academy.Diving in the crystal clear waters of Lanzarote is a great experience The variety of marine life and dive sites and the warm climate in Lanzarote means diving is available all year round.

Coast/Beach:

A five minute drive or a 10 minute bus journey to the nearest sandy beach and a 5 minute walk to the coastal path

Travel:

Arrecife airport is approximately 35 minutes by car. There are taxis at the airport although a lot of people hire a car as it is very reasonably priced also there are a number of companies that do reasonably priced airport transfers - Please ask if you need any assistance in this area

Distances:

Nearest amenities are approx 100 meters from villa The town of Playa Blanca is a five minute drive or about 15 minutes on the local bus the coastal path is 5 minutes from the villa Lanzarote is a small island so its never far to any resort or tourist attraction There is a ferry service from the port in Playa Blanca to Fuereventura Timanfaya National Park is about a 15min drive. Puerto del Carmen & Puerto Calero are about 30mins To cover the whole island would probably take no more than 1 hour

Further Details:

The local shops, bars restaurants are approximately 100 meters from the villa the local bus service is excellent The bus stop is located at the end of the parade of shops 5 minutes walk from the villa the service runs half hourly is very punctual and costs 1€ 30c for the entire route It runs from about 7 in the morning until 10 at night It is wheelchair accessible it's great for catching the bus into Playa Blanca town and a taxi home is approx 5 Euros wheelchair taxis are readily available there are2 water parks in Playa Blanca a town centre beach as well as 2 other lovely sandy beaches The promenade in Playa is lovely for the evening full of bars and restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets
