About Gill Pegge
The apartment is managed personally by Gill Pegge, assisted by her husband and daughter. Gill worked as a manager in several 4 and 5* hotels in the UK before moving to the beautiful island of Lanzarote in 2012. Being on the island allows Gill to meet and greet guests, make sure they are familiar with the apartment’s facilities, as well as passing on advice and recommendations to enhance their holidays. Being on the island also allows Gill to very quickly sort out any problems which guests may have. Gill has a passion for Lanzarote and has never had a more enjoyable 'job' than making sure that guests have a relaxing and memorable holiday.

Why Gill Pegge chose Puerto del Carmen - Tias
Lanzarote has year round sunshine and blue skies.
Puerto del Carmen has something for everyone, including the best choice of restaurants and bars we have ever come across, and the ambiance and variety of the resort’s facilities appeals to guests of all ages.
The Atalaya Complex is secure, quiet and friendly and isn’t used by tour companies, so you don’t have the noise and activity of some of the larger complexes. The apartments on this complex are a good size and are light and airy.
What makes this apartment unique
Most of our guests comment that complex is in a fantastically convenient location. Guests just love the peacefulness and tranquillity of the apartment and are amazed that you can walk to the lively main promenade in just 3 minutes. Also, being only a 10 minute journey from the airport makes transfers very easy. Having a well stocked supermarket next to the complex is also very handy.

From start to finish what a great experience! Impressed by the reviews totally lived up to expectations. Excellent communications, great transfers by the Pegge family. The apartment is very well located, peaceful but near everything. It was attractive, light, well furnished and had all we needed. We want to come back!
The apartment was very central, it's was very clean and had everything you needed and more. I loved the shower/wet room. The pool was lovely and the whole complex quiet and peaceful. We will be back very soon.
Fantastic Christmas Holiday!
We had an amazing holiday made all better by this lovely apartment which was spotless and modern. The photos were exactly as the apartment is and all of our expectations were managed. Fantastic location, just a few minutes walk from the main strip but a very peaceful location with a Spar supermarket very conveniently situated very close by. It was lovely to be met by Gill at the airport for our transfer to the apartment and we would thoroughly recommend anyone arrange this with Gill as it was all so quick and easy. The resort itself is lovely, we hired bicycles and followed the cycle tracks in both direction as far as we could go; found some lovely beach bars which were extremely relaxed even though Silent Night was blaring out on Christmas day!; ate in many lovely restaurants and took a day trip to Playa Blanca. We would definitely recommend this apartment to friends and family and if we are lucky enough to be able to take another Christmas break again then we would not hesitate to come back here as we had an absolutely fantastic holiday (we were blessed with brilliant sunshine most of the time and warm temperatures). Thank you very much Gill for all your help prior to our trip and for our transfers.
Wonderful relaxing holiday
Gill met us at the airport and took us to the apartment which was exactly as described on the site. It was lovely to have a washing machine and not arrive home with stacks of washing! The Spar next door was well stocked and prices were very good. The site was quiet and peaceful ( but the pool was a little cool!)
and conveniently situated for "the front" with its numerous bars and restaurants.
Hopefully we will return in 2016!
Excellent all round apartment
Stayed in this apartment for 7 nights. A very clean, bright and well equiped apartment. We couldn't have wished for anything more. We will deffinaty book this apartment again.
The booking process was so easy and the Pegges offered airport transfers and food packs which made the start of our holiday begin so smoothly. The apartment was well furnished and decorated to a high standard and had everything we could wish for. We liked the bathroom which had a wet room shower area. This is apartment is on the ground floor and when we sat out on the patio we had lots of lovely hellos from the other holidaymakers, it was a very friendly place. The sunbed area was only a few steps from our patio and that was ideal. The apartment is ideally located with a spar virtually next door. The road comes out opposite the Casino which is in the middle of the strip so was in a very central location. We did do a couple of walks both going left towards the airport and right to the old town. There is a good bus network and the taxis are cheap and plentiful.
We would certainly recommend this apartment.
