About Lanzarote: In 1987 Lanzarote was declared one of the six universal models of sustainable development by the World Tourism Organization and in 1993 it was declared a Reserve of the Biosphere by UNESCO.

Lanzarote is the most easterly of the seven major Canary Islands and lies in the Atlantic Ocean only some 100 km (60 miles) from the coast of Africa and 1,000 km from the Iberian Peninsula.

The island enjoys an average temperature of 22ºC all year-round due to its advantageous location in the Tropic of Cancer. Lanzarote has an unusual volcanic terrain and will not disappoint travellers yearning for breathtaking eco-tourist attractions. Lanzarote has a staggering 300 volcanoes, extensive lava fields at Timanfaya National Park show the violent volcanic activity that became Isla de Lanzarote.

Amongst the most outstanding attractions are the Art, Culture and Tourist Centres, the world famous artist César Manrique's sensitive response to Lanzarote´s unique geography and people was instrumental in creating a pervasive artistic identity throughout the island.

Explore subterranean volcanic tunnels through lava tubes created by molten lava. Los Jameos del Agua is the most widely visited lava tube in Lanzarote, owing to the sparkling blue lake that lies in its centre and its development by Canarian artist Cesar Manrique in 1968. Volcanoes and frozen lava rivers are not the only places worth seeing in Lanzarote. The paradise island is home to miles of white-sand beaches and gorgeous coastline. Windsurfing, para sailing, scuba diving, and other forms of water sports are some of the most exciting ways to enjoy the refreshing turquoise waters in Lanzarote.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a gorgeous villa for our family holiday. We had a fabulous holiday loving the fact that the villa was in a very quiet area with just a short walk to the local shops, perfect for those breakfast croissants. We had a car to go and explore the island but the villa was so lovely we often enjoyed just chilling by the pool. Casa Olivina its self was very spacious, decorated tastefully, and impeccably clean. The villa was very well equipped with everything that we could have asked for, the books and DVD’s were a nice touch and very useful. The pool was perfect for playing in, which was just what we wanted and we made good use of the BBQ too.

All in all this was an excellent villa, faultless for a family holiday we would recommend to friends.

Thank you to Shaun and Lorraine for such good communication and efficiency.

Relaxing New Year Break 2009

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a holiday where our 2 young kids could swim in a pool without getting bombed or splashed by other kids. We saw this villa and contacted the owners who were really helpful.

Casa Olivina was more than big enough for us. We found it to be extremely clean and finished to a very high standard. It is tastefully decorated and was like a home away from home. Every last little thing was thought of, even books, DVDs and toys for the kids.

Although there is no shallow end in the pool, it is a great heated pool and my husband and I could relax whilst the kids played in the pool - needless to say, our kids loved it and spent hours in it every day.

The garden was also very well maintained with nice sunbeds and a lovely alfresco dining area.

The location was perfect - because it is in a residential area, we found it to be peaceful, quiet and private. We hired a car and would highly recommend this, especially with a young family as this means Playa Blanca is easily accessible, as is the rest of the island. Just about everywhere on the island is good for driving. It's also the best way to get to many of the attractions in Lanzarote - Jardin de Cactus, Montana Roja, Castillo de las Coloradas, markets especially in Teguise, just to name a few. And, above all, parking is easy and usually free.

We spent New Year's Eve in Playa Blanca and saw some amazing fireworks displays on the sea front. And, when the kids couldn't stay awake any longer, we headed back to the villa where we saw the rest of the display from the roof terrace - a truly amazing experience!

The location of the Villa is ideal if you want to have good access to Playa Blanca but have some peace and quiet to relax. And, if you don't fancy driving, then the walk way alongside the sea towards the Marina was well maintained and ideal for promenading.

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Casa Olivina and hope to return soon.

Thank you Shaun and Lorraine so much for the lovely stay at Casa Olivina Villa!!!

Superb Villa, Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Unfortunately we had to leave & come home.

Found the villa to be exactly as described, very clean & well maintained. Plenty of outside area with sunny & shaded areas as required & a great pool which was soon put to good use. Had a weekly change of the bed linen & towels with the pool regularly cleaned although we never got to meet the pool man as he always came early in the morning before we were awake. The information pack left in the villa was a great help regarding restaurants & things to do. Positioned on the outskirts of Playa Blanca we found the area to be very quiet which is what we wanted but just a short car ride to the centre of the resort.

This was our second time in Lanzarote & would thoroughly recommend Casa Olivina as a fantastic base for a brilliant holiday.

Relaxing Holiday

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely holiday in this villa. Soon felt at home, it was comfortable and clean. In a great spot, quiet and out of the way of the main part of Playa Blanca... which suits us. Local restaurant , La Flaminco, was very good.

This was our first time in Lanzarote and would definitely come back to this villa.. Just a small negative.. . We cooked most nights in the villa and the black was coming off the insides of the pans.. Perhaps time for new ones?

Fantastic Week in Great Villa

  • 5 of 5

We have returned home after a fantastic week in the villa.

The villa is superbly maintained and recently decorated. It was very clean, private, spacious and the swimming pool was also maintained to a high standard. The gardens are also very well maintained.

Excellent information from the owners pre-arrival and also on arrival helped us to settle in without any problems.

Our little boy loved the heated pool and we spent many hours playing in it. There was plenty of space for us to play paddle tennis at the side of the villa as well.

The Satellite TV was great and had all sports channels much to my delight! The al-fresco dining area is also superb and was put to good use by ourselves for several meals.

There is plenty to do on the island. We hired a car and also got out and around the island which has some very interesting places to visit - the Cactus Gardens, Volcanic Areas, Teguise Market but to name a few and I even managed to sneak in 9 holes of golf!

We would definitely recommend this villa to our friends or relatives and hope to return at some point in the future.

Nice property - couple things to note.

  • 3 of 5

Lovely well-kept property, garden and pool. However the villa is located right by the entrance security gate to the estate. During our stay we were regularly disturbed by taxis dropping off residents in the early hours of morning. Also the bin store for the estate forms part of the side garden wall and is emptied before 7.00am by rather noisy bin men.

The villa, gardens and pool are immaculate, although this property is for six people and having paid for a villa for six it was a surprise to be left with two sunbeds and four patio chairs.

Playa Blanca is located on the south of the island and still retains the atmosphere of a once small fishing village. This flourishing but tranquil resort is ideal for family and people looking for relaxation: with its beach borderlined by picturesque restaurants and a shop lined promenade, almost always basked in warm sunshine and offers superb views of the mountains and the island of Lobos and Fuerteventura.

From the harbour at Playa Blanca, ferries cross several times each hour to Fuerteventura.

Papagayo, the most gorgeous beaches on the island is a conservation area. Accessed by foot, car or water taxi, beach after beach, six in total, of golden sand and clear water, with some great snorkelling at their rocky edges.

Marina Rubicon has a selection of restaurants, cafes, bars, designer shops, galleries and market.

Timanfaya National Park transformed by the Volcanic eruptions is surreal, the landscape is totally unique, experience the lunar landscape and views of the volcanoes.

Other Activities: Relaxing Sunbathing
