BIG!

  • 5 of 5

This is a huge villa with five double/twin rooms and a double futon in the lounge.

The house is nicely decorated and pretty well maintained. It's relatively remote location makes it very quiet and peaceful. The only disturbances we had came from a permanently resident English family in the adjacent property whose teenage son had a screaming tantrum one day and another individual riding a scooter up and down the road about 20 times (he was old enough to know better).

The remoteness also means you have to drive if you go out at all. Nothing is within easy walking distance. Just taking the rubbish to the communal bins would be a 20 minute round trip if walking. Outside the towns there are no footpaths along the roads making walking anywhere a little risky.

The well kept garden is home to a multitude of wildlife including at least two species of lizards, several visiting birds and a nesting pair of collared doves. We also had daily visits from a very friendly one-eyed cat.

The only thing we would change would be to install electric heating backup for the pool. It has a heating system which relies on the sun to heat the water circulating in a network of pipes. If the sun is hot for a few days, the water is warm. Unfortunately after a week of mostly overcast days, the water became uncomfortably cool.

All in all a thoroughly enjoyable holiday in this house and we would thoroughly recommend it.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your lovely comments, I do appreciate them. Regarding the back up electric heat pump for the pool we do have one right next to the sun panel, shame i was not notified as it would have been no problem putting it on. Patrick.

Brilliant time yet again

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Villa Viento del Canto. We have stayed twice before - the last time in 2010. The villa had some updates parts - great wifi and a brilliant entertainment system giving access to plenty of television programmes and films.

The beds were all comfortable.

We spent plenty of time outside and found the pool warm and clean. The pool is really great for swimming - nice and big.

Patrick and team were very helpful and kind - just how I remembered.

The walk down the hill to Puerto deal Carmen is easy. It takes around 30-40 mins to reach the old town. If you don't want to walk back up, a taxi was around 4-5 euro and around 5 mins.

i really hope we can return again - we had a great time :-)

Just fantastic!!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 8 - 2 adults, 1 x 16 year old and then 5 x under 10s! So finding the right property for our holiday was probably our main priority. This property was just perfect.

The first thing note is the villa's location. It really is in the middle of nowhere so the kids could be as noisy as they wanted in the pool without any fear of disturbing the neighbours. That said, you are just a few minutes away from Puerto Calero, Carmen and Playa Grande, all of which are excellent to visit and each offers something different.

Within the villa, there are 5 good sized bedrooms, more bathrooms than you'll know what to do with, more terraces than you'll ever need, each with a good viewpoint of the pool for easy watching of any young children. The pool itself is easily large enough to cater for a large family and our 9 year old and all those above in age were never out of their depth.

We've been to Lanzarote a few times, always in Playa Blanca until this visit, but this has opened our eyes to other parts of the island and we preferred the areas around us so I am sure we will be back and will enjoy this villa again in the near future.

Patrick was always on hand during our visit and came to carry out various jobs or pool maintenance on three occasions. Each time, he stayed for a beer or a sangria and we very much enjoyed his company. He's a very easy going property owner.

All in all, this was one the best holidays we've ever had and we look forward to our next visit.

excellent villa

  • 5 of 5

Just back from our 3rd stay in this perfect villa, and already booked for next year !!

fantastic villa, in such peacefull surroundings, a haven for a holiday away from all the hustle n noise of the local resorts, nearby supermarket so you don't have to go to far away, a hire car is a must, excellent for all family members.

a day on Patricks yatch is a must also we had a brilliant day out sailing with both Patrick and Anitha, thanks again.

See you next year !!

Lovely spacious villa which was very comfortable for 2 families. It was quite and peaceful with beautiful views, but only a short drive to main towns.

We would like to thank Patrick for the lovely day sailing, and for making us feel very welcomed.

We would recommend the villa to everyone, we will be returning!

Regards
