The beaches are ideal for sunbathing and building sandcastles. The sea is ok to swim in but visitors need to be a little careful as the waves can get quite big.

                                                                                                4 of 5

Based in Antigua and roughly in the centre of island so you can get North to Corralejo beaches and South to Sotavento/Jandia easily for a good day trip. 3 bedrooms - 2 with en suites. 1 family bathroom with Jacuzzi bath. The beds have luxurious foam mattresses – which you just melt into. Sea air ensures and tranquil surroundings ensure a good sleep. Kitchen features fan oven, induction hob, microwave, f/freezer and mums' favourite on a self catering holiday - a DISHWASHER! The TV is Spanish channels only. The Bluetooth has not been enabled so you can't flick through your photos  Terraces – Top floor has large table, 2 sun loungers and brick built BBQ – which we enjoyed using most evening. Ground has coffee table for 2 and hosts the washing lines. One of the many fab reasons I like Fuerte is that you put your washing out on the line at night, fetch it in dry in the morning! The washing machine has a timer too so easy domestic life here  The pool looks out over to the South East and West of the island. You can watch the sun dip behind the mountains at the end of the day. With South facing aspect, you get heat of sun on your top terrace, but no direct sun on any terrace from around 5pm. The strong breeze wafts through apartment to cool you down – make sure you use door stops (improvise by re-filling your ultra large water bottles with tap water). Lower ground floor bedroom allows you to sleep with patio doors open. Few downsides in that the apartment is furnished in a minimalist style – no lacking in a few soft design touches - bedside lamps, essentials only for cooking. However to purchase items such as flasks, ice cube trays, pizza tray, measuring jugs take a drive North on the FV1 along to the Chinese warehouse they sell absolutely everything anyone could ever need to fill a house with - at bargain basement prices, you can also pop into Mercadona (supermarket) to get your shopping – get there early in the morning though to grab a steak, stop by the local Panaderia (bakery) for a coffee and a croissant first though – never shop on an empty stomach! Henri, property owner is a polished host, so ensures you have a full complement of soft and fluffy towels and the property is spotlessly cleaned upon your arrival. You’ll need to provide a cash security deposit which is receipted.

We were 2 couples and my auntie.We stayed in and cooked most nights. The villa was very well equipped with pots and pans. We had gone for a total relaxing holiday. There are many nice places to go in the day. This was our 3rd visit to Feurturventura. The villa is very spacious and comfortable. I would definitely recommend hiring the air conditioning. The pool area is very large and the pool was lovely and warm. It was also cleaned while we were there. Paula and Tommy were lovely neighbors. They also look after the villa and gave us a very warm welcome when we arrived. I would definitely recommend a stay in this beautiful villa. A car is a must though. Thank you for a lovely holiday destination. Graham and Linda Hartlett
