About the property

3 Bedrooms, private roof terrace, close to child friendly beaches and lagoons.

Our apartment is situated in El Cotillo, a small fishing village on the west coast of Fuerteventura.

El Cotillo has a number of friendly cafes and bars with some wonderful views of the harbours and beaches. There are several small supermarkets catering for Spanish and English tastes with restaurants specialising in sea food and Canarian dishes. The apartment is located on the edge of the village and is close to bars, shops and restaurants and is only a few minutes walk to the beaches. To the north are the golden beaches and enchanting lagoons where children can play and explore the rock pools. A beach bar and restaurant offer food and drinks throughout the day and a little shade. To the south is the 'surfers' beach, where the wind and waves provide excellent opportunities for water sports.

Roof terrace: Ideal for outdoor eating and drinking the odd G & T (not provided) a 50+m space, is equipped with 4 loungers, 4 chairs, a large table and parasol. With views to the mountains in the east and the lighthouse and beach to the west, the sun can be enjoyed all day long.

A TV is provided with a surround sound DVD system that also plays CD's and has an in-built radio tuner.

The larger sofa has a single bed underneath which provides additional sleeping.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From our first enquiry about this property the owner was extremely efficient, helpful and provided excellent customer service.

We cannot find any fault with the property, it was exactly as described, very spacious and well equipped. There were plenty of towels and bedding provided and the washing machine was really handy, plus a roof terrace with plenty of space to dry laundry.

We are a family with two small children and this was an ideal property for us. A highchair and travelcot were provided free of charge. The apartment is split into two levels but had stairgates on both the top and bottom of stairs, which were brilliant for safety. One main reason we chose this apartment was because it has a bath tub (as many properties have only a shower) again, ideal for small children.

Everything was well thought out, a real home from home. There is a DVD player with a library of DVD's, both for grown-ups and children. There were lots of beach toys available for us to use if we wanted, which had been left by previous holiday makers.

El Cotillo is a wonderful place to stay if you're looking for a quiet holiday which is away from all the large tourist resorts. It's a small village with a few restaurants and bars. There's a supermarket within walking distance of the property which is well stocked, plus a delicious bakery!! The childrens playground was nearby which we used everyday, it was lovely.

We had an absolutely fantastic holiday here and would recommend to anyone, especially those with children who are looking for somewhere with uncrowded sandy beaches and good facilities.

Proper en goed gelegen appartement

  • 4 of 5

Alle benodigdheden zijn aanwezig in het appartement . Goed gelegen vlakbij het dorp en de zee. Leuke restaurantjes en supermarkt vlakbij. Een aan te bevelen locatie zonder massa toerisme. Wij hebben super genoten met ons gezin, 2 volwassenen + 3 kinderen.

This is a lovely, clean, well equipped and really well sized apartment with front and back roof terrace. We had an excellent stay and can highly recommend. Really close to a good sized supermarket and less than 5 mins walk to sunsets and bars, with lots of eating options to choose from.

Would absolutely stay again. Thanks John & Moira!

The Silence was Deafening !!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful month in John and Moira Reads apartment in El Cotillo. and would recommend this holiday to any one who likes an unspoilt location in a pretty fishing village on an amazing coast. The property was well maintained, clean and very comfortable . There are plenty of very good restaurants in and around the two harbours and we cannot wait to return next winter to escape the cold weather in the UK. Thank you John and Moira.

Nearest Airport
35 Kilometres
Transport can be arranged

If lounging on the golden sandy beach all day, soaking up the sun or swimming in the clear blue sea becomes to much for you, you can always visit some of the islands other attractions either by car or bus. Bus services run regularly to the capital Puerto del Rosario and to the lively port of Corralejo. Corralejo, perhaps the busiest town in the north of the island boasts numerous shops, bars and restaurants with a twice weekly open air market and a recently opened water-park. Regular ferry services operate to Lanzarote and to the small island nature reserve of Isla Lobos.

Close to El Cotillo are the towns of El Roque, Lajares, La Oliva, Villaverde and Tindaya. All of these towns hold local fiestas and many have churches and museums that are worth a visit as they offer glimpses of the islands past. The pace of life is relaxed and easy going with 'manyana' an appropriate attitude to adopt.

For the more active holiday maker El Cotillo has some wonderful beaches to explore.
