About Sue Cobourne
We live in the Wye Valley in Wales. We fell in love with Lajares around 15 years ago, it's a large village/town which has everything you need within walking distance. A large supermarket, a great range of restaurants, a pharmacy, a hairdressers, dentist, tattoo parlour and many local craft shops. It's only a 10 minutes drive to simply stunning beaches. We have an excellent property management team: Paul and his son Barney. We stay in the villa regularly to ensure everything remains at a high standard. We offer a high standard at a reasonable price (see the guest review). We truly care about our guests and understand how little things make a big difference. We have a high number of returning guests.

Why Sue Cobourne chose Lajares
We holiday regularly in the villa to ensure it is well maintained. The villa is exceptional well designed. The inside space flows well. All 3 bedrooms are extremely spacious, with very high quality beds, linen baskets, hair dryers, full length mirrors and bins. You can turn on the lights from beside the beds and charge your phones/I-pads from the USB chargers (bring your own cables). Each bedroom has a ceiling fan (imported from the UK). The outside space has a range of areas, so you can sunbath in private; in-or-out of the sun; or have some quiet time from the rest of your party! The lounge is light and airy. It is comfy, we even have a foot stool! The new flat screen TV receives the main UK TV channels; local and many European channels. Please read our guests reviews. However hard we try the pictures don’t do the villa true justice.

Lovely villa, well located.
A lovely villa with everything you need for a relaxing stay. The indoor pool makes this villa different to many. We had a windy few days, but this didn't matter with the pool being both inside and heated. We also made the most of the hot tub.
It's a private villa in a quiet area. However, you can walk to local restaurants in 15 minutes and there are a number to choose from. Equally jump in the car and you can be on either side of the island in no time. Great beaches at both Corralejo and El Cotillo.
The villa is well equipped with comfortable beds. We had a lovely time and would highly recommend.
We choose the villa very carefully, having stayed in many villa in Fuerteventura ourselves previously. It’s in a great location, in a quiet area, whilst within walking distance of the village centre. It’s equipped fully as we use it regularly ourselves, and recognise that the little things make a difference. You are welcome back any time. Sue
A beautiful, well appointed and spacious villa. The patio offering complete privacy and whilst it attracts the sun all day there is still shade to be found nearer the villa. The jacuzzi is particularly attractive to relax in early evening and if not wishing to use the excellent BBQ, there are several nearby restaurants and cafes to frequent. Overall a very relaxing and chilled out accommodation.
We (3 adults and 3 small kids) spent two weeks in Sue's place. The villa is perfectly equipped and well located. It was absolutely clean and Sue was so kind to organize extra highchairs and baby beds upon request. In any case of need we could always contact the local property manager Barney. The village itself is a nice place with some restaraunts and a supermarket. There are nice beaches within short driving distance. We absolutely recommend the Villa Alegre as vacation place.
Thanks to Sue & the local team!
You are welcome back any time. It was the first time we had young twins staying. We have 2 villas, so own 2 sets of cots & high chairs. We are very lucky to have Paul and Barney looking after the villas for us. Sue and Richard Cobourne
Perfect family villa in Lajares with hot tub and indoor heated pool
We had a fantastic holiday in Sue's villa in Lajares. The villa probably has the best-equipped kitchen we've ever stayed in! If you like cooking like we do, there're plenty of pans, utensils (including BBQ) and trays to cook with - something that lets many villas down.
Sue had thought of everything - adaptor plugs; comfy, big beds (all a minimum queen and king-size); toys for the pool/beach; lots of towels; secure gates; pretty garden lighting, etc. Had some fantastic family meals using the huge brick-built BBQ.
Best of all were the hot tub and indoor heated pool though. Hot tub was fab for chiling at night (plastic glasses provided, of course!). Indoor pool was ace as meant no suncream battles with the kids as well as using it in any weather/time of day - windy days didn't spoil our fun.
Sue was a pleasure to deal with with the booking process, directions and local restaurants/places to visit. Excellent, fast communications by email and very prompt repayment of the security deposit.
You also have an English maintenance team in Barney and Paul - also very easy to call if any issues and quick to respond.
Overall, a 5 star booking-experience at a 5-star villa in a 5-star location. I'd recommend Villa Alegr3 to all my friends and family and look forward to returning.
I am thrilled you appreciate all our time and effort in trying to provide all the little extras that can make a great difference to a holiday. We holiday in the villa regularly to ensure it remains in tip top condition and stays 5 stars. The indoor pool has many advantages- you can open up all the patio doors on sunny days, but keep them closed if windy. You don’t have to worry about getting burnt. You can sit on the sun beds outside on the private patio and watch the children in the pool. When not in use it can be locked, if small children are staying. We hope to see you again. Sue and Richard Cobourne.
Immaculate property in lovely location
We stayed at Villa Alegre for 3 weeks. The weather was stunning and surpassed all expectations. Lajares is a very relaxed village with some great bars and places to eat. No need to dress up and great value for money. The villa was very well equipped by the owner and extremely well maintained by Paul and Barney who not only kept everything “shipshape” but were fonts of knowledge with regards to local eateries and attractions. We used the pool and hot tub every day. The pool to help us cool down and the hot tub to relax following a hard days sun bathing. The WiFi worked fine for us and we had no problems at all. The TV system worked equally as well. We would definitely come back and would recommend this property as an ideal base for exploring Fuerteventura.
Oh so glad you enjoyed your long holiday - you're welcome back at any time.
Absolutely Brilliant Villa
When we arrived the fridge had already been stocked with the basics. Milk, butter,Ham,Cheese, Water and a loaf of bread. Also many types of teas and coffees and various ways of making coffee.
There is no end of cooking equipment,Pots and Pans, Crockery.
The pool is a great size and big enough for a morning swim, the hot tub is also quite large and was used quite often.
Overall the Villa is fitted to a very high standard both inside and out and everything you could possibly need is there to be used.
The Owners Sue and Richard have done everything to make your stay enjoyable.
A great holiday was had by all four of us and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend this villa to anybody who is looking for a peaceful and relaxing time.
Thanks - over the years, we have stayed in a great variety of villas and 5 star hotels. Our aim is to provide our guests with everything they need to have a brilliant holiday. We have many repeat guests and hope you will join our regular gang! Thanks for the gifts you left!
Lajares is a delightful village in the north of Fuerteventura, some say possibly the nicest in the north of the island. Situated between Corralejo town and the fishing village of El Cotillo, Lajares is home to a mixed culture of local islanders and many other people from all over the world.
The island is a destination for sun, beach and water sports enthusiasts. It lies on the same latitude as Florida and Mexico and temperatures here rarely fall below 18 °C (64 °F) or rise above 32 °C (90 °F). There are no fewer than 152 beaches along its coastline — 50 km (31 mi) of fine, white sand and 25 km (16 mi) of black volcanic shingle.
Within 2kms of the house is everything most people need in one place; a choice of great restaurants, cafes and bars; a decent sized, well-stocked supermarket; an awesome bakery; bank; pharmacy; craft shops; Saturday market; surf and bike hire; bus services to most parts of the island.
The village is tranquil with a real sense of community, yet well-placed for exploring.
