About the Owner

My family and I live in Lanzarote since the year 1995. I am originally from Paris and I met my German wife in Lanzarote in 1998. During all this years we had 2 lovely kids: Emily (12 years) and Nils (10 years). We originally moved to Lanzarote because of its climate: The Island enjoys an average temperature of 22ºC all year-round and it is sunny almost 360 days a year. It is also a very safe place for children and mature persons.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Freddy and Marion,

Roland and I want to say a huge big thank you for helping to make our holiday in Lanzarote such a great experience. We enjoyed staying at your lovely apartment which was quiet, as you promised.

You were so helpful and kind and Roland really enjoyed talking to you. I am sure however, you will be able to get a lot more work done now that we are home!!!!!

We arrived back in the Isle of Man to storms and very windy weather and we both wanted to turn around and come back to the warm sunshine!

We will definitely be visiting Lanzarote again!!!

Kindest regards,

Elizabeth and Roland

Superbe séjour.

Nous avons passé 10 jours dans cette location qui est très propre et tout à fait adaptée pour deux personnes. La piscine est parfaite (même si le vent qui était très fort cette année n’a pas permis de faire grimper la température de l’eau). Freddy, notre hôte (Marion n’étant pas présente) a été très agréable et prévenant.

Lanzarote n’est pas le simple caillou noir que nous avions pu imaginer et nous avons été très agréablement surpris par la diversité de ses paysages et des visites culturelles, la beauté de ses plages, etc.

De Tias, il est très aisé avec une voiture de location (pas trop onéreux sur cette île), de se rendre rapidement sur les divers sites.

Un très agréable séjour que nous conseillons sans retenue !

Owner's Response: Merci à vous deux d'avoir pris soin de notre villa et de notre piscine ;) L’eau de la piscine encore un peu fraîche pour cette époque de l'année nous aide à passer agréablement la vague de chaleur qui nous touche actuellement. Lanzarote possède encore de nombreux trésors cachés que vous découvrirez certainement lors de votre prochain séjour  J'espère vous revoir bientôt Bien amicalement Freddy (et toute la petite famille)

Go here, it's wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Had a week here with my husband. Such a brilliant apartment with everything you could ever need, and the friendliest family who own it. We only had a week but wished we had longer- pool to ourselves and lovely and peaceful. Would recommend having a car if you do want to get out, but taxis are cheap and easy to come by just as other reviews cite (though the call centre didn't understand my attempt at Spanish and instead spoke fluent English- oh well- I have it a go!).

Thank you Freddy, Marion and your gorgeous kids and pets :)

Total bliss, a real getaway from it all

  • 5 of 5

truly oustanding place, perfect location , only the crowing of chickens to break the silence, Tias , the local village is a good 15 minute walk away, but a car not essential as you can order a taxi for €4 to local supermarket, get your groceries and stroll across the road from supermarket and get taxi back to apartment, a nice touch was welcome pack of essentials provided, Freddie and family are a joy, pleasant to talk to and are discreet , but will talk to you quite freely and offer advice etc, Tias is a great place plenty of bars and restaurants across the spectrum and cheap too!! we will certainly go back for some more peace and quiet, property was clean, ikea furniture and accessories all in good order,

What a perfect place to relax.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived for our stay at around 9pm a little lost, Freddy came out to find us and guide us to the apartment. Freddy and Marion had left us a welcome pack which would have seen us fed and refreshed till the morning. Already a great start.

Our first morning view of the pool and the surrounding areas was exactly what you see in the pictures, perfect. Everything about the apartment was perfect. There are books to read, some games to play and some information to help you on your way. What is also very helpful is that the previous guests have left unused foods in the cupboard as well as olive oils, salt, pepper, spices, tin foil, sugar, tea, coffee. (Check them out before shopping)

The apartment was spotlessly clean with everything there to keep it clean.

We were shown how to take the cover off the swimming pool and then left to soak up the sun. The swimming pool is fantastic, there is no chemical smells or bleaching as it is kept fresh with salt. As for relaxing, we spent 8 out of our 9 days sunbathing all day, perfect.

Freddy and Marion were always ready to answer any questions we had but were also great to talk to and have two children which are a credit to them.

We would strongly recommend this fantastic place to anyone who wants a truly relaxing stay. You will need a car or enjoy walking as the local shops in Tias are uphill and about 20 minutes away on foot, as are the bars and restaurants. Taxis are around 3.5 euros if needed and the hosts are happy to order one if you need. Puerto del Carmen, Puerto Calero, Arricefe are all about 15 minutes away by car, the airport about 10.

You will need a car if you want to visit any of the attractions on Lanzarote. We used auto reisen which operate a fair fuel policy (take the car back with the same amount of fuel). Book your car as early as possible, i.e with your other bookings as this will be when you get the cheapest price but don't worry, they don't take any payment until you pick up your car at the airport. Check out the bakers at the top of the central avenue in Tias. If you have never been to the National park volcano then go and experience the coach tour there.

All in all, we would stay with Freddy and Marion again when we need a totally relaxing break. Thank you, Steve and Angie from Heywood near Manchester

This apartment was perfect for the two of us! It was like we had the whole place to ourselves, including an incredible pool with sun loungers. As an added bonus, we also had wonderful hosts who are on hand for anything you may need, including a welcome basket for our late arrival.

It is a great location in the middle of the island, although a car is essential, however there is ample parking. Shops and amenities are close by and there are some wonderful restaurants close by too.

All together, it was excellent value for money with great hosts and if we ever return to the island, we'll be staying with Freddy, Marion and Family! Thanks again guys!

From the Owner

After living in Puerto Del Carmen (too busy and noisy), Playa Honda (too close to the airport), Costa Teguise (too windy), we finally bought the villa of our dream with an apartment in the quiet and peaceful town of Tías. The apartment is located just below our house on the ground floor with direct access to the swimming pool and a private terrace (19 m2). Tias is a little village ideally located in the country side. You will feel the atmosphere of a village with all its little shops, one of the best supermarket (quality and price), friendly people and even sometime you will be awake by the crowing of the neighbour cock! You can even buy some fresh organic eggs from a nice old women living in opposite of our street (5€ for a box of 30 eggs).

Activity and Interests


You are at 10 min drive from the apartment of “playa chica” one of the nicest beach of Puerto del Carmen (old town). During the morning you will meet a lot of diving school because of the qualities of the water and the variety of the sea life on this small beach.

5/10 min walking from playa chica, there is a huge beach “playa grande” with a fabulous coastal promenade where you can walk/bike ride all the way to Arrecife and where you will find numerous bars, restaurants, discos etc.


Arrecife Airport is a 10 minute drive from the apartment and taxis are very accessible for around 10 €.


The village of Tias is 10/15 min walk from the apartment, where you will find everything you need (doctor, banks, chemist, hairdresser), there is a supermarket (quite big, with qualities product and good prices) and a lot a small shops at resident prices. You will find also a few different restaurants for all tastes and some bars very far from the prices (lower) and qualities (better) that you will find in the tourist area like Puerto Del Carmen ! The best bakeries of Lanzarote are in Tias!

Further Details:

Car hire is not essential (I do mostly everything with my bike) but recommended if you want to visit or reach the beach.Tias is a small village but you will find more than 15 bars/restaurants for all taste and the best quality for the price!!! There is also a few bars (English and Spanish) with local prices !! You have 2 pharmacy, 2 or 3 dentists (one English one), doctors, 1 local supermarket, 2 small English supermarket, 2 or 3 bakeries and a lot of small shop where you can find everything at local price (not tourist price;) !!

You can drive in the nice protect area of la Geria ( 5min drive from the apt) to test and buy some Lanzarote wine (excellent). About 15min drive from the apt you can reach the nice village of Uga and the Timanfaya Park (volcanos), where you will maybe recognize some scenery where a lot of movies star had appeared (Penelope Cruz, Dennis Quaid, Liam Neeson, Raquel Welch, Rita Hayworth, etc.).

Long term rents of 4 weeks or longer are possible.
