About Julia

Tourist operating licence number 1657 (first issued 1991)

Why Julia chose Puerto del Carmen - Tias

The villa was built in 1979 by the present owners to a very high specification. The design was by a renowned designer who worked with Cesar Manrique on a number of projects on the island. The house reflects many features of the island architecture.

There are, effectively three bedroom suites with private terraces offering a quiet corner with a different view at any time of the day. The furnishings in the villa were custom made in the local style of a very high quality and there are antique pieces.

There have been several refurbishments over the years, the latest in November 2011.

Although the villa is not specifically fitted for the disabled client, it was built for ease of access, all on one level and with wider doorways. It has proven to be user friendly for persons of restricted mobility.

What makes this villa unique

Spectacular sea and mountain views, privacy, large, spacious accomodation, ample mature gardens, main and separate children's swimming pools, very large main terrace and private terraces to each bedroom suite, unique and classical design.

Fantastic Villa - Sadly some disappointing aspects

  • 4 of 5

Four of us have just spent two weeks at La Cancela Verde. It really is a wonderful villa with magnificent sea and mountain views of Lanzarote and Fuerteventura. The accommodation is spacious and comfortable affording privacy and communal comfort. The extensive gardens are immaculate and they also afford total privacy.

We were met by the manager, Susana, on behalf of the owners. Susana is a local lady with a good command of English. She is a very pleasant, helpful and concientious lady.

Unfortunately problems arose with our stay from day one. The washing machine, whilst cleaning clothes adequately did not complete its cycle, stopping showing a fault after the rinse programme, leaving water in the drum. Despite a visit from an engineer, this problem was not resolved.

There are two televisions at the property, one in the tv lounge and one in the main lounge. The one in the main lounge plays dvds only. The dvd player linked to this tv did not work, but was replaced promptly. The tv in the tv lounge is linked to a sky box. This also did not work and despite visits from engineers was not repaired. In fact the box was removed from the villa and not replaced. Susana mentioned an insurance problem.

The large pool was heated at the time of our stay. Sadly the temperature of the water left a lot to be desired and certainly did not feel as though it was heated to 26 degrees as stated by Susana. She told us to heat the water to a higher degree would encourage bacteria and require more chemicals. The pool is a large kidney shape and has a cover in 3 sections. It has to be removed in the 3 separate sections and is very cumbersome. When left poolside it creates a trip hazard.The pool man will remove and replace the cover as required for a gratuity.

Whilst these may seem to be insignificant problems, they did detract from what was otherwise a perfect holiday.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments about La Cancela Verde, we are pleased that you found the villa comfortable, private and that Susana was on hand to assist you. We are sorry that you encountered some problems during your stay. Regarding the washing machine, this was likely to be due to an overload of the machine which may have been the previous clients. Susana did go to the villa to help with this problem as soon as it arose. We were also aware of the terrible storms that you had during your stay. It has been confirmed by our technician that all the satellite receivers and DVD player were affected by the electrical storm and had to be replaced which unfortunately takes time. Although Susana replaced the DVD player immediately, the satellite receivers could not be changed before your departure. The pool is heated to 26C but weather conditions can affect the temperature. We advise clients to put the cover on at night time to retain the heat and our pool manager does offer an extra service to do this at a small charge. We understand that these problems can detract from a lovely holiday and wherever possible we try to quickly solve any issues that arise.

What a great place!!

  • 5 of 5


It has been our third stay at La Cancela Verde Villa. Despite of already many comforts at the villa, every year it gets even more modernized / e.g. this year the owner added a great shower outside, adjacent to the main bedroom /.

The villa is very clean, spacious, colourful and in a quiet neighbourhood.

Everyone and in every age can find the right place and something suitable to do during those holidays.

From the very first email or phone contact with the owner Julia and Christopher, it was always impeccable, professional, quick, kind, but also right to the point. Susana, the manager, is the local person, taking very good care of the villa. She is very helpful, extremely pleasant and easy to communicate with. She always answers the phone and gives good advice or idea on every topic associated with the villa or the island. In case if she is needed at the villa, shows up right away. Thanks to Susana, the tourist at La Cancela Verde feels very secure and comfortable. I sincerely recommend this unusually welcoming and spacious possession, with beautiful views at the sea, mountains, gardens. Also a heated swimming pool and a lot of privacy. We have already reserved the time for our fourth stay at the villa, which speaks for itself : we are amazingly happy there !

Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

What a spectacular villa,we cannot recommend it enough.The pictures do not do it justice.

The view of the mountains,ocean and Fuertoventura are breathtaking,from the minute you wake and look out of the bedroom window,to the glorious sunsets and we were lucky enough to witness the Sturgeon Moon from the little patio area just off the master bedroom,a perfect place for a nightcap at the end of the day.There are too many places and views within the villa to pick a favourite,you will just have to visit and choose your own.

A very special thank you to Susana and Julia for making us feel so welcome,they could not have done more to ensure we had a fantastic holiday.

Taxis pass between Carmen and Calero regularly for those who dont fancy the walk ,with shops within walking distance.We recommend the little butcher shop (Lanzarotemeat) beside the Spar (5 mins walk away).

The outdoor shower while gazing at the sun and stars was a particular highlight.

We have been to the Canary islands before but this was our first visit to Lanzarote and will surely not be our last.Carmen offers nightlife for all tastes,though we found it hard to stay away from the villa for too long.

We look forward to returning before too long.

Wundervollen Villa im spanischen Hazienda Stil

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren zu zwei für 14 Tage in der wundervollen Villa im spanischen Hazienda Stil und haben uns sehr gut erholt und wohlgefühlt. Alles ist mit sehr viel Liebe im Detail eingerichtet. Großzügige Schlafzimmer und Wohnräume alles mit Bodenfliesen. Große Kleiderschränke mit Kleiderbügeln und Schubladen. Eine große Küche mit allem was man braucht: Gasherd, Backofen, Mikrowelle, großer Kühl-Gefrierschrank, Toaster, Kaffeemaschine, Spülmaschine usw. Im Nebenraum befindet sich eine Waschmaschine und Trockenmöglichkeit für die Wäsche auf Seilen. Es gibt einen sehr großen Außengrillplatz und noch einen Innengrill-Raum den man vom wundervollen Esszimmeraus betritt. Im Haus gibt es TV, Skybox und WLan kostenlos. DVD und Bücher gibt es im Wohnzimmer. Es gibt eine separate Gästetoilette, ein Bad mit Badewanne, ein Bad mit Dusche, eine Außendusche. Es befindet sich ein Safe für Wertsachen im Haus. Die Fenster haben Schnakengitter und unterschiedliche Öffnungsmöglichkeiten. Ein Mietwagen ist sinnvoll um die Umgebung zu erkunden, man kann ihn auf dem Grundstück überdacht abstellen, somit wird er auch nicht zu heiß im Sommer. Man fährt direkt vom Kreisverkehr auf einem Kieseinfahrt durch das grüne Grundstückstor. Die Hausmanagerin Susana ist ein wahrer Juwel und sehr liebenswert. Zur Begrüßung hat uns Susana Tee, Toast usw. hingestellt dass wir für das erste was haben, da wir sonntags angekommen sind. Susana hat uns alles gezeigt und ist eine jederzeit über Handy erreichbare Ansprechpartnerin bei Fragen und Sorgen und kommt schnell zur Villa wenn man es wünscht. Susana spricht Englisch und Spanisch und ist gerade dabei einige Worte Deutsch zu lernen. Das Haus ist super sauber. Es wird wöchentlich gereinigt, die Bettwäsche und ausreichende Handtücher ebenso wöchentlich gewechselt. Ein Gärtner kümmert sich um die wundervolle Terrasse und Pflanzen. Es gibt mehrere überdachte Terrassen zum Schutz vor der Sonne. Ebenso gibt es auch viele windgeschützte Sitzmöglichkeiten. Man hat einen herrlichen Meerblick von der Terrasse aus fast 180°. Es gibt 6 Sonnenliegen im Garten und mehrere Tische und Stühle zum Sitzen. Der Pool wird ebenso regelmäßig gereinigt. Der Pool ist nicht beheizt sondern mit einer Abdeckplane professionell abgedeckt, so dass die Sonne die Wassertemperatur anwärmt. Das Abdecken des Pools ist problemlos alleine oder zu zweit möglich in dem man die Abdeckplane rauszieht und aufrollt. Es gibt auch einen kleinen Kinderplanschpool. Durch die Größe des Grundstücks und

A most relaxing & enjoyable break.

  • 5 of 5

Thouroughly enjoyed our stay at Cancela Verde, delightful property. Plenty of room for everybody, each room with its own private terrace. Our guests loved the villa, it's views and facilities and are looking forward to returning. They appreciated why we are frequent visitors to the villa and were impressed with Lanzarote, being their first visit.

Broadband was a bonus enabling us to keep in touch with our worldwide family and share the lovely facilities and views.

Enjoyed showering under the sun and stars!!!

The villa was spotless, everything we needed was provided.

Susana was gem very helpful and made sure the villa matched our expectations. The daily dip in the pool was very refreshing after a day in the hot sun.

A quiet oasis close to the main attractions and the wider places of interest in Lanzarote.

We cannot wait to return.

Thanks Julia

The villa is easily reached by the main trunk road from the airport - a journey of 20 minutes by car. The villa is in a rural location on the outskirts of the old village of Puerto del Carmen, mid-way along the southern coast of Lanzarote . Puerto del Carmen, the most established tourist centre on the island, is five minutes journey by car where can be found shops, restaurants and some of the main beaches on the island. The attractive yacht marina development of Puerto Calero is five minutes' drive to the west. The villa is located on a private development of three individual villas, all separated by substantial gardens and a traditional house nearby. The villa is in an elevated position, overlooking untended farmland commanding panoramic views of the sea, the islands of Lobos and Fuerteventura to the south-west and the mountains of Femes to the West. The south-westerly aspect offers clients sunshine from dawn to dusk on the ample terraces and armchair views of the splendid scenery.
