Lanzarote is known for its year-round warm weather, making it the perfect spot for sun-seekers whatever the season.
And, with the Canary Islands boasting a dramatic volcanic landscape as well as an array of beaches, this hotspot promises something unique.
With more than 60 villas in its collection, Optima Villas offer no shortage of stunning accommodation options to suit different needs and budgets.
Villa Paloma, based just a stone’s throw from Playa Blanca in the resort of Las Coloradas, is a beautifully designed space, which offers en-suite bathrooms with each of its three bedrooms.
Decorated to a high-standard throughout, the spacious living area is home to a large dining table, comfortable sofas, and a large flat-screen TV.
As well as having WiFi, there’s a dedicated games room featuring a pool table and ping-pong table – so every holidaymaker is sure to have something to keep them entertained.
Outdoors, the spacious upper terrace boasts a selection of seating areas, including a Bali bed, and guests are even treated to spectacular ocean views across to the island of Fuerteventura.
The villa sits in front of a stunning volcanic backdrop, and on the secluded lower terrace, a large heated swimming pool and an array of sun loungers await.
Food & Drink
With a built-in barbecue as well as a fully equipped kitchen, you can dine in style at Villa Paloma.
Alternatively, Lanzarote has plenty of restaurants, bars, and cafes to choose from.
For an unforgettable evening, take a stroll to the picturesque harbour Marina Rubicon to find boutiques and eateries, and pause to enjoy tapas on the waterfront as the sun sets.
To sample Canarian cuisine in a one-of-a-kind setting, visit the El Diablo restaurant in Timanfaya National Park, where guests can enjoy sweeping panoramas of the rugged lava fields.
The eatery was designed by Lanzarote native artist Cesar Manrique, and many dishes on the menu are prepared using the heat from the dormant volcano.
With the island stretching across just 60 kms, exploring Lanzarote couldn’t be easier.
Just outside of Playa Blanca are the Papagayo beaches – a largely undisturbed collection of white sand beaches, nestled in between dramatic cliff formations.
Companies such as First Minute Travel offer guided coach tours of the island, so you can hear all about the area’s wealth of history from some of the country’s residents.
Timanfaya National Park is home to the Montañas del Fuego (known in English as the Fire Mountains), where visitors can experience the area’s geothermal anomalies.
In order to preserve the park’s stunning natural beauty guests can’t roam around, but they can instead see the sights via coaches which traverse the spectacular Ruta de los Volcanes.
The Final Word
With a friendly team based on the island, a 24-hour hotline, and an array of well-designed houses, Optima Villas are certainly worth taking note of.
Prices start at £150 per night for a stay at Villa Paloma, with the company offering a range of accommodation options to suit varying budgets.
