About Sheena Hardwick

I live in England with my husband, 3 children, our cat and 2 hens. I am an occupational therapist.

Sheena Hardwick purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Sheena Hardwick chose La Oliva

I first visited Fuerteventura with my family in 2002. During the holiday we travelled around the island and discovered El Cotillo, which felt like paradise. We then started to holiday in El Cotillo and fell in love with the village and its beaches. We had never been a family who returned to the same place for holidays, but when it came to El Cotillo we couldn’t help ourselves!

What makes this apartment unique

We were on holiday in El Cotillo over New Year in 2007and during our stay we decided to view some properties for sale. We wanted a holiday home that was large, modern and very comfortable and essentially it had to have lots of sunshine and ocean views. El Carmen is certainly the property we wanted – it really has all the comforts of modern living in a stunning location.

Apartment Review

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to the Canary Islands and we was not disappointed with El Cotillo and our apartment. The apartment was spacious and clean. Both sun terraces are roomy and had fantastic views of the surrounding area. El Cotillo is very much a chill out location with a short walk to some wonderful lagoons. There's a good selection of bars and restaurants.

We had excelent communication with the owner, Sheena which made our booking uncomplicated. When we return to El Cotillo we will not hesitate to book again at this apartment.

El Cotillo is known for its fantastic beaches and El Carmen is a 5-10 mins walk from the nearest beach, Playa del Castillo, which is a huge wild beach, fantastic for surfing in the winter and kite surfing in the summer and year round body boarding. Playa de los Logos is a 10-15 mins walk from the apartment and is composed of wonderful secluded white sand inlets and clear blue lagoons, perfect for safe swimming, rock pooling and fishing.


Fly to Fuerteventura - El Cotillo is just 40 mins away. Car hire is inexpensive, but not essential as airport transfers can be arranged and there are plenty of taxis and a good bus service on the island.


Airport, 45km.

El Carmen is located in the village of El Cotillo.

Further Details:

Fuerteventura has a 12 month holiday season due to its subtropical climate (temperatures usually range from 18-26C) and has very little rain. The sun shines for an average of 2800 hours a year, which averages out as 8 hours a day. El Cotillo's main attractions are the fantastic beaches. The village has a good selection of restaurants walking distance from the apartment. There are also 2 small supermarkets, a bakery, a bank, a post office, an internet cafe and a couple of tiny gift shops. Corralejo is a much busier and larger town and is a 20 minute drive away. There is a regular and reliable bus service which can be used to access the rest of the island with ease.

El Cotillo is perfect for those who want to relax on its sundrenched beaches, but there are also lots of sporting activities on offer - e.g. surfing, kite surfing, windsurfing, quad biking, cycling and fishing. There are other very accessible activities, such as a local water park, a zoo, a range of museums and camel safaris.
