We are the family Van Bogerijen. Mark, Sandra, Olivia and Emily. We moved to France in May 2007 and have lived here since, after living all our previous lives in the UK. We have two properties for rental. 1) The villa in France is a new build. It is modern in terms of build and decoration but we think the best feature is its location and the views. You have panoramic views from the pool, the terrace, the barbecue area and from every window in the house. (2) The apartment in Fuerteventura is also new build and the quality of the fixtures and fittings is excellent. The view of the sea and mountains are amazing. We do hope you enjoy viewing and if we can be of any help or you need any information, please contact us. Good luck or Bonne chance!
Owner purchased this Apartment in 2009
Why Owner chose Gran Tarajal
We soon realised though that it also gets cold in France in the winter so we wanted an option for winter sun. Therefore we bought in Fuerteventura, we are not normally impulsive but he minute we saw the apartment we bought it!
What makes this Apartment unique
We the love the peace and quiet. The views of the ocean and the mountains are lovely and we love to relax away from the hustle and bustle. The build design ensures you maximise views but ensure privacy. The pool, gymnasium and facilities are excellent. We also like to engage in the Canarian culture and often wander down through the marina to the many restaurants on the sea front. We enjoy the local dish of goat stew or fried kid with bottle of Rioja or of course we love fresh fish and Canarian potatoes.

Lovely flat with great view
We had a great time, the flat is really nice and well well furnished. The terrace is huge and the see view is amazing. Gran tarajal is a cute city, not too touristy which is nice. We had a lovely stay.
Wonderful apartment in a Spanish town
The previous reviews say it all.This is a wonderful clean and comfy apartment with indoor and outdoor seating and dining tables.
All answers from the owner to my initial enquiry and subsequent confirmation of booking and payment were received by return. The information on the apartment, resort contact details and the surrounding area, emailed to us prior to our holiday, covered everything we required.
During our stay the toilet in the bathroom, there's a second one in the cloakroom, developed a fault so we reported it to one of the management team and it was fixed within a couple of hours. Excellent service. We didn't use the washing machine, dishwasher, oven, microwave or iron but they are there for those that require them.
There's a good bus service if you wish to explore a little without hiring a car.
To sum it up everything in Gran Tarajal is low key. There's a choice of restaurants, including Indian and Chinese, and cafes along the beach but none of the usual shops aimed at the tourist. No large hotels or loud music. Just a few tourists and a lot of locals enjoying the November sunshine. We loved it.
Thank you for taking the time to review the apartment. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you again. Kind Regards Mark and Sandra
Fabulous location, great apartment
We loved being in a real Spanish town rather than one of the many touristy towns we passed through on our excursions. It was lovely sitting in one of the seafood restaurants on the waterfront watching kids rollerblading by, playing football and doing gymnastics on the beach, our son joined in the football with the Spanish kids which was great.
We also enjoyed being just outside town where it is quiet and peaceful, and particularly the views directly over the sea from the apartment.
The apartment is spotless, really well equipped and comfortable with English and Spanish TV, good WiFi speed, books available and a great house book with various guides, maps and leaflets provided.
We were very pleased that the pool was a good temperature for swimming even in April. The sea was also very pleasant for this time of year.
There are some beautiful beaches just a couple of bays South of Gran Tarajal well worth the short drive.
Top Tip! The restaurant just below the apartment (3 minute walk) does an amazing "parillada" - a mixed fish platter - and the best calamari we have ever had.
Highly recommended for an out of season break if you are looking for some sun and relaxation away from the more touristy areas.
We were looking for a town away from the fleshpots of Corralejo, and Gran Tarajal certainly fitted the bill. It seemed to us during our 4 week stay to be a real Canarian town that just happened to be by the sea....a smattering of Spanish is very useful.
The apartment and location is exactly as per the description. We were blessed with very good weather, but the arrangement of the enormous terrace makes the most of all day sun and shelter from most winds.
We will certainly try to book again.
Thank you for taking the time to review. We are so glad you enjoyed the apartment and the town. Your comments are exactly what we like too. Look forward to hearing from you again, kind regards Mark and Sandra
A memorable week
My friend and I stayed for a week at this lovely,spacious and very well equipped apartment . Gran Tarajal itself is a really nice town. It's a 20 minute walk to the restaurants,passing a fish restaurant on the way which is not to be missed. We had a good deal on a taxi transfer from the airport. From then on we used the local transport and enjoyed several days out. The tourist kiosk in the town was informative to this end. There are some lovely shops and a bustling little harbour. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the apartment nor the area. Yes,it gave us a memorable week.
A Memorable Week
This is a lovely apartment with a superb view from the huge terrace capturing the sun all day. It is very clean and comfortable. A 20 minute stroll takes you to the good selection of restaurants passing a very popular fish restaurant on the way. This one is not to be missed! A taxi back costs €2.35 during the day and 30 cents more at night. We had a taxi transfer from the airport and then made good use of the local transport. The tourist information kiosk was very helpful and the local buses frequent. There are no all day breakfasts in Gran Tarajal and no one begging you to dine at their restaurant. Some days ours were the only English voices we heard. So yes,Gran Tarajal has lots to recommend it and left us with a very memorable week.
You can see a rocky beach from the terrace but there is a blue flag beach is just 5 mins walk through the harbour. Fuerteventura is well known for its beautiful golden sandy beaches and the apartment is well situated to visit the best just South at Costa Carma
Property is located just 30 mins drive for the airport.
5 mins walk (through the harbour) to beach, restaurants and local amenities in the town. 5 minutes drive to Las Playitas which has golf course, olympic sized swimming pool and access to all water sports.
Fuerteventura basically has over 300 days of sunshine a year. The second largest of the Canarian islands but it is the least populated and the least developed in terms of tourism. The beaches are simply the best and likened to those of the Caribbean.
The island still has the authentic feel with small untouched fishing villages. Food lovers should try the local delacacies of fresh goat meat or, of course, freshly caught fish with seasonable vegetables and Canarian style potatoes. There are also some very nice Rioja's and dry white wines
