I live on the island of Fuerteventura with my husband. The apartment is our only apartment for rent in El Cotillo therefore we can offer a personal service and give as much time as needed to each individual client.
We had been coming to Fuerteventura for 15 years and fell in love with the island all those years ago so deiced to move here in 2008 and still love it here.
The Owner purchased this apartment in 2004
El Cotillo is such a beautiful tranquil place. Our idea of heaven. Ideal to recharge your batteries. The lagoons superb and the other beaches are a haven for surfers
There are numerous benefits for staying in El Cotillo
You can really escape the crowds. Some of the best restaurants on the island are there and all within easy walking distance.
The local buses run regularly to Corralejo and you can also get a connection from there to Puerto Rosario the capital of the island.
You can do as little or as much as you want. Bird watching, cycling, fishing, surfing or nothing but sunbath and drink the delightful Wine.
The are a few supermarkets and gift shops but not too many!
With the large patio area you can also enjoy great alfresco dining, have a BBQ or get a takeaway and enjoy a quiet night.
4/3/13 “A great appartment in a quiet place.” We've just had a great week in El Cortillo. Fantastic apartment it had everything we needed and more, plus a welcome pack. The village is quiet which we like, good restaurants and bars but if you want something livelier is not far from Corralejo by bus or if you hire a car. Recommended
Jan 2013 “perfect!” The apartment is lovely, just like having your own home. The owners were lovely and were there to greet us upon our arrival. Sandy and her husband have thought of everything in the apartment: beer ready in the fridge :-) childrens games, beach gear, cool bag. You name it it's there for you. All rooms are tastefully decorated, lovely comfy beds and lovely patio area to relax in the sunshine. Thank-you Sandy!
May 2012 “Lovely apartment & a very relaxing holiday” Just returned from a week in this apartment. It has everything you need & the owners Sandy & Andy are very friendly & flexible with times of arrival & departure.
we selected this area as it was recommended by a friend as being not too overdeveloped; this was true. There were plenty of places to eat out and enough to do, you need a car if you want to see all the island. The property was clean well stocked with some thoughtful touches. Wi-Fi is not very good if want to keep in touch.
The apartment was a great base for us. It was clean and had a great outside space and everything we needed was there.
The position is good, quiet in the evenings, although within walking distance from the restaurants and shops.
The one disappointment was the WIFI. Only available for a cost and we could only get it when outside the apartment and then you couldn't always get a connection. You don't always want to go to a restaurant to get the free access.
When we first got to El Cotillo we did have our doubts about it as a resort. It's a bit of a strange mixture of buildings and building plots that looks like they were working on a huge expansion, and then stopped for some reason. But as a result there are almost no hotels, which means that you get a quiet, more relaxed location and a choice of good quality restaurants rather than "All Day English Breakfast" joints as far as the eye can see.
On our first evening we watched the sun go down at the Mirador (Tapas menu for two including wine is 25 euros!), and we were regulars at El Goloso the French bakery for cakes and bread.
The resort has two areas of beaches - to the south are the long beaches used by the surfers while to the north are a set of volcanic rock lagoons that are great for safe swimming and snorkelling, though exactly what you can do is dependant on the state of the tide. And each lagoon has a large area of yellow sand to put your towel down on.
The apartment is great for two people, though I think any more and it might begin to feel a bit cramped. It's well equipped (with parasol and wind break) as well as stuff for inside. The welcome pack was, well, very welcome, and the flat also had things like washing up liquid which meant we didn't have to buy much for the week. When we were there was a particularly fiendish 1500 piece jigsaw which we managed to polish off. And there's a supermarket just across the road.
Only downside was the internet. The only Wi-Fi is by separate arrangement, and said to work best on the balcony. To be honest we didn't bother, and spent more time talking to each other, topped up with a bit of cellular data (much cheaper now due to the EU, well at least until next year...), so we didn't miss it much.
Have been to Fuertaventura twice a year for the past six years and El Cotillo was a fantastic surprise. We normally go to the lagoons every time we are there but have never stayed in El Cotillo. Our apartment was a home from home with everything you could ask for and will definitely be back. There are plenty of bars and restaurants but I will stress that the big fancy ones aren't always the best apart from Vaca Azul and El Callao. The small Tapas Bars are excellent value and the staff are very pleasant. If you are looking for a relaxing holiday without having to wonder round the shops then El Cotillo is the plays to go.
Warm welcome from Sandy and Andy on arrival - with a thoughtful welcome pack. The apartment is spacious light and airy, spotlessly clean, and well equipped with everything needed and more - even a wind break and umbrella for the beach. Quiet location
There is a well stocked supermarket just across the road, and it's only a few minutes' walk to the amazing beaches - surfers beach to the south and natural lagoons to the north. El Cotillo is a friendly unspoilt fishing village with lovely restaurants specialising in fresh local fish. Great to watch the sun set by the old harbour with a sangria!
Many thanks to Sandy and Andy - I'm sure we will return
A huge thanks to Sandy & Andy for their appartment. From the welcome given, the quality of furnishings, the starter pack, the cleanliness & the location. Nothing could be faulted. Care & attention top class. Already rebooked for next year!! says it all.
Special interest holidays:
The island offers fantastic water sport facilities including diving and surfing. In El Cotillo you can hire surfing equipment and bikes or take a trip bird watching to discover some of the islands rare species.
The apartment is near to 2 beaches. The white Saharan sandy beach on the lagoons and the extensive Surf beach. Both of these within walking distance.
Fuerteventura airport is only 40 mins away. Although not essential a hire car is recommended if you want to tour round the island but the local bus service is excellent. A regular bus service runs from the village to Corralejo and Puerte del Rosario (the Capital).
Car Hire - we can recommend a very good car hire that will meet you at the Airport from 145 euros if you prefer we can arrange this for you. (Directions will be forwarded once you have booked) Or we can arrange a lift.
The Island is approx 100km long and 20km wide. Corralejo which is approx 20km away. This town has a multitude of shops, restaurants, WaterPark and lots of entertainment. You can also catch the ferry from here to Lanzerote. Caleta de Fuste is also a very popular tourist resort and this will take about 45 mins by car to get to. And a must to visit is the lovely capital of the island Puerto del Rosario which is just before the airport.
El Cotillo has good restaurants and bars and a few supermarkets. There are some shops but not lots as this is still a small fishing village. There is a very good child’s play park and can be found as you head through the village towards the lagoons.
