Overview

About the property

Apartment in El Cotillo, Fuerteventura, Canary Islands - Quiet Location Within Easy Walk Of Stunning Surfing Beaches And Exquisite Lagoons For Safe Swimming

We have created a space that is as easy and relaxed as a beach holiday apartment should be, equipped throughout to a high standard, offering a home from home appeal. A modern space that feels cosy in the evenings and open and bright during the day.The 2 large sun terraces offer the opportunity for outdoor dining and private sunbathing. The apartment is situated in the El Carmen complex that sits on the edge of the small fishing village of El Cotillo on the west coast of the island. The nearest surfing beach (seen from the top sun terrace) is a short walk and the more secluded and sheltered lagoons are only 10 mins walk located at the other side of the village. Of course, if you are a seasoned traveler to Fuerteventura, you will likely have hired a car to take full advantage of the other beautiful beaches on the rest of the island, although of course this is not necessary as there are plenty near by. A taxi from the airport takes about 40 minutes and once at the apartment, there is a well stocked supermarket just across the road, so everything is in easy reach. El Cotillo has a lovely selection of traditional restaurants where you can try locally caught fish or paella or pizza and chips if you prefer ! Away from the bustle of fully inclusive resorts, El Cotillo offers a quiet escape from a traditional resort holiday but with all the home comforts to hand. Surfboard and bike hire are available just 2 mins walk away for those that prefer a more energetic holiday. WiFi is included for up to 2 devices or you can purchase more wifi locally. We love this place and hope you will too !

Patrick Ayling purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Patrick Ayling chose La Oliva

We first came to Fuerteventura on a surfing and windsurfing expedition in the 1980s. We fell in love with the place so much that we have returned almost every year since without fail.

Last year an opportunity to realise a dream presented itself to become owners of a property in a place we also call home.

El Cotillo has a rustic charm that is irresistible. It offers the peace of a getaway destination with the convenience of shops and facilities to hand and is surrounded by beautiful beaches.

What makes this apartment unique

We have equipped the apartment with love, care and practicality. The fully equipped kitchen offers everything from toast to Sunday roast. Or if you prefer to spoil yourself, a sunset walk followed by a meal in one of the authentic local restaurants is a must.

A drink with the locals in one of the numerous bars followed by stargazing on the upper terrace on a sun bed before bed is a favourite of ours.

Morning is greeted with stunning views and watching the sun rise over the mountains with a cup of Nesspresso in your pyjamas (if you are up early enough!).

Life slows down on Fuerteventura and we always say it has a way of letting you catch your breath.

Map

Coast/Beach:

The nearest beach, seen from the terraces is a 10 minute walk.

Travel:

Fuerteventura airport is a 40 minute drive.

There are taxis available and a regular bus service around the island.

A hire car will give even more opportunity to discover this wonderful island, but not essential as everything you need is to hand on the doorstep

Further Details:

The apartment is perfectly situated for surfing, Kitesurfing and Windsurfing and the terrace is big enough to store all your kit whether rented locally or if you brought your own.

Wifi is free for 2 devices from the local provider if you need to keep Connected. You can purchase vouchers for more devices if you need to locally.

There are numerous surf schools around if you are that way inclined and plenty of bars and cafes if you are not !

We are so happy to have found this beautiful little gem in our favourite part of Fuerta Ventura.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is as described. It's comfortable, contemporary, very clean and well appointed, it has beautiful views and two private outside areas. There is plenty of room for four people. The furniture and contents are very adequate for a self catering holiday, and it's a short 5 min. walk to the fishing harbour and very nice restaurants and coffee shops. 5 mins in the car takes you to the beautiful lagoon swimming beaches and rock pools. There is good parking facilities outside the apartment , and it's a stone's throw to a very good supermarket.

The apartment is reached by an external flight of stairs, so pack light. The stairs might not be suitable for very young children or the elderly. We can recommend this apartment without hesitation.

Wonderful well equipped holiday home. Very comfortable stay with 4 adults. Easy walks to sea, shops and restaurants. Minor problem with intermittent wifi - but on holiday so not a huge difficulty

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely location this little duplex is, tucked away with fantastic views.

So comfortable and well equipped, even down to lunch boxes and freezer packs for pic nicks to the beach.

We ate in whilst gazing at the beautiful view through an open picture patio window.

Situated in the small fishing village with restaurants where you can eat fish caught that day at a reasonable price.

You will not be disappointed.

Thank you Pat and Zoe

MARAVILLOSO LUGAR Y MEJOR ALOJAMIENTO

  • 5 of 5

Estuvimos a primeros de año, Canarias es maravillosa en estas fechas, el Cotillo es pintoresco, con vida y lleno de playas calitas maravillosas azul turquesa.

El alojamiento de Patrick es bonito, muy limpio, con todo lo que se necesita y mas.

Muy bien ubicado se puede ir andando al puerto y enfrente tiene un gran supermercado, restaurantes, etc.

Ropa de cama y toallas todo en muy buen estado y camas MUY comodas.

Las terrrazas y la luz que tiene increibles.

Sin duda volveremos.

El anfitrion amable y siempre atento
