This villa is set in the Red Volcano area of Playa Blanca. It has 3 bedrooms and 2 shower rooms (1 en-suite). It sleeps up to 6 people. There is one double bedroom and 2 x twin rooms.
The kitchen is well equipped with oven, hob, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and the lounge is comfortable furnished with TV and DVD player available. The villa has Wifi connection included in the price. The villa is wheelchair friendly.
This lovely peaceful villa has its own private south facing garden with pool which is both solar and electrically heated and is not overlooked by neighbours. There are comfortable sunbeds around the pool, perfect for lazy days ! There is also an upper terrace with large exterior dining table and chairs, ideal for al-fresco dining and any keen chefs can turn their hand at the Canarian style BBQ. For your convenience there is a poolside shower room.
The villa is in a good location a 10 min walk to the nearest beach which is called Playa Flamingo, with restaurants and bars and supermarkets. A further 10 minutes into the town centre of Playa Blanca were you will find a large selection of restaurants and bars and shops for you to browse around. Car hire is not essential as the villa is close to town but there is also a local bus service if required. Cots and High chairs can be hired.
Let me start on a positive: We were interested in another villa which wasn't available and were offered this one instead & given a 'last minute' discount. However If we had paid full whack, I think we would have been very disappointed.
The kitchen is pretty well equipped but the dishwasher doesn't work very well.
The garden is pretty, the pool a good size although we paid 50 euro to have the pool heated, it never really felt 'warm' and it took about 2 days to heat up just slightly.
On arrival, we entered the villa and into the kitchen to be greeted by a Mobility scooter & a cupboard full of zimmer frames. Now, that's great they provide for disabled /elderly guests, but we are not (we weren't asked if we needed these things) and to have a mobility scooter parked up IN the kitchen was a little off putting.
We were provided with 2 bath towels and 2 hand towels. These were not refreshed / replaced in the week we were there. Nor were the sheets changed. We were also only provided with 1 tiny bottle of shower gel and 1 tiny bottle of lotion. No shampoo but 4 Left over old bottles of sun cream. Gross!
The bath mats were very worn and the tiles in the en-suite were very cracked and tired. However the water pressure is fab!
There was a rusty tired looking chair in the main shower room, I presume for people with disabilities to sit in the shower.
We worked out it's cheaper to hire a car than use the 'courier service' offered by the agents. It would have been 50 euro to the villa & 50 back, more than a taxi. To rent a car for the week was only 70 euro and fuel is cheap. So if you don't mind driving and can all fit in a car, I wholly suggest you take this option! For a 'decent' supermarket, you will also be grateful (the nearest Spar is about a 30 min walk). The local supermarkets are really not great and don't sell fresh produce. You'll want to get that ace BBQ going!
The villa is about a 10 min walk to the Playa, there's a few restaurants. Don't bother ordering any food in the big wooden restaurant at the end (can't remember the name) it's dire... as are the 'smoothies'. The beach is small but clean.
There's a water park very close by which plays 80's and 90's chart music all day long, which is well audible from the villa. I personally didn't mind too much but if you're looking for a peaceful retreat, it's worth taking into consideration!
All in all a mixed bag. A bit tired, interesting 'additions' and not worth what they're charging!
My family of 4 had a very comfortable week here. VIlla in good location with great patio and pool for sunning and refreshing ourselves. Villa well equipped inside and out. Good beach about 10 minutes walk away and centre of town within 20-30 minutes. Did not have a car, did not need one. Bus stop close by.
Clean, well equipped villa with a lovely pool and terrace. No need for a car hire as there were restaurants and supermarkets within walking distance. The main area of Playa Blanca is within about 20 minutes walk but there is an excellent bus service with the bus stop just round the corner from the villa. The service from the agents was excellent from start to finish, they even arranged our airport transfers. Playa Blanca itself has plenty of bars, restaurants and shops.
The villa was beautiful and very well equipped. Our family (mum,dad and 2 teenagers) had a fantastic week here.
The location was good and we did not need to hire a car for the week; thanks also to the great service of the agent who ferried us back and to the airport.
Villa Casa De Montana De Fuego is located in the Red Volcano area of Playa Blanca, very close to the local beach at Playa Flamingo. Playa Blanca itself is a lovely old fishing village which has adapted easily to tourism without losing any of its character, there is a great selection of shops and restaurants in the town catering for all tastes and budgets. From the old harbour you can walk along the sea front for miles or you could catch the frequent ferry to Fuerteventura for the day .The exclusive Marina Rubicon is a little further along the seafront and also has a good selection of designer shops and restaurants, it holds a market on Weds/Sat mornings.
