A spacious two-bedroom duplex apartment, facing south on the edge of El Cotillo

Overview

Property

Updated: 21-Nov-2016
Apartment in El Cotillo, Fuerteventura, Canary Islands - Spacious Apartment With Two Large Private Terraces With Spectacular Views Of The Hills And Ocean

El Cotillo is a small fishing village with two harbours, a good number and variety of restaurants and bars, a large supermarket two minutes away from the apartment and many other interesting shops. To the north of the village are a variety of beaches and lagoons varying in size from “La Concha” beach with its large car park, beach café, toilets and showers to small secluded beaches with no facilities. The lagoons protect the beaches from the Atlantic swells making them easy to swim in. To the south lie the “surfer beaches”, many large bays, exposed to the Atlantic swells and a paradise for surfers, wind surfers and kite surfers. Lie on the beach and watch the action or join in. At the time of writing there are two windsurfing schools less that a minute from the apartment. For walkers there is a 5km coastal cliff top walk offering spectacular views of the ocean to the west and the hills and extinct volcanoes to the east. Why El Cotillo and why Casa Eva? We love the sun on holiday and have been to most European countries and their islands in search of it. The Canaries are a tourist destination all year round as it is sunny 12 months of the year. The Atlantic Ocean moderates the temperatures warming the island in the winter and cooling it in the summer. We started coming to the Canaries almost 20 years ago, initially to Lanzarote and then Fuerteventura. First to Corralejo when it was less busy and then to El Cotillo and we were hooked! The attraction of El Cotillo is that it is still a fishing village, it is still quite small yet because the beaches are so good and varied it is busy enough to support a good variety of restaurants, bars, cafes and shops. For many years we rented and then, one year, we stayed in an apartment in El Carmen and were astounded by the space and quality of the duplex. We asked the agents if there were any for sale and at the time there were three. The layout of the apartments on the complex means that some of them are subject to shade on both terraces after midday, especially from October to March. We were advised to choose one that got all day sun which left two and we chose Casa Eva, bought it and have never regretted it. We visit two to three times a year and for us it is a “home from home” a place to relax, meet old friends and catch up with the gossip. Casa Eva is a great apartment to base your holiday. It is an easy 45 min drive from the airport or we can arrange to collect you if you decide not to rent a car. Our management team, who have been looking after guests to El Cotillo to their own exacting high standards for more than 10 years, will look after you. The apartment is well maintained and decorated to a high standard. Inside the rooms are large and outside two extensive private and sunny terraces expand the living space even further. It's a short walk to local shops, bakery, restaurants and bars. All this and you are only 5 mins by car (15 mins on foot) to some of Europe's finest beaches.

Location

From the Owner

We love the sun on holiday and have been to most European countries and their islands in search of it. The Canaries are a tourist destination all year round as it is sunny 12 months of the year. The Atlantic Ocean moderates the temperatures warming the island in the winter and cooling it in the summer.

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

To the north of the village are a variety of beaches and lagoons varying in size from “La Concha” beach with its large car park, beach café, toilets and showers to small secluded beaches with no facilities. The lagoons protect the beaches from the Atlantic swells making them easy to swim in.

To the south lie the “surfer beaches”, many large bays, exposed to the Atlantic swells and a paradise for surfers, wind surfers and kite surfers. Lie on the beach and watch the action or join in.

Travel:

By air to Fuerteventura Airport. Most guests hire a car from the airport. Once clear of the airport it is a relaxing 45 minute drive over the hills and across the island, on almost deserted roads, to El Cotillo. However please watch the speed limits as the police are very strict. El Carmen is situated on the left, just as you enter El Cotillo and opposite the football ground. Turn left off the main road just past the supermarket and then turn right into the car park for the complex

Distances:

15 minutes by car, inland from El Cotillo, is Lajares where a lot of ex pats have permanent residences. As a result the shops and the supermarket have better stock and the supermarket delicatessen is more likely to be open. From Lajares you can go to La Oliva where a visit to the Colonels House is a must or you can go to Corralejo, the main tourist centre for north of the island. Where El Cotillo is quiet, Corralejo is busy, although to the west of the main street is the charming old town.

Facilities

From the Owner

El Cotillo is really a large village and just about everything is within walking distance. The main supermarket is only two minutes away, the nearest tapas and pizza restaurant less than a minutes walk from the apartment. There is a general store, selling almost everything you may need or forgot to pack, next to this restaurant. The village has a new part and an old part and is great to explore and boasts many restaurants, bars and cafes all an easy walk away. If you want to eat in but do not want to cook, the supermarket usually has a delicatessen open and offers a variety of ready cooked choices. All this and you are only 5 mins by car (15 mins on foot) to some of Europe's finest beaches.
