Villa Loretta was new to the holiday rental market in 2011 after an extensive refurbishment. It very quickly proved to be popular with our regular clients.
This Lanzarote villa is in a prime location on the cliff top in the Old Town of Puerto del Carmen. For those who know the area it is just in front of Villa Benedicte. It has superb views of the Old Town, the harbour and beyond across the sea. Furnished in a modern style throughout, this is an upmarket, spacious and stylish villa.
The terrace, which can be accessed from both the kitchen and lounge, has the benefit of harbour and sea views. To the side of the villa is the private pool and barbecue terrace. This has a covered shaded seating area by the barbecue to provide for the all important al-fresco dining. The pool, which will be heated in the winter months (November to April inclusive) has steps for entry and is surrounded by terracing and flower borders.
A 10 minute stroll away with easy access via the steps or coastal walkway takes you down to the harbour. If you really feel you don’t want to leave the villa then the nearby supermarket will have all you need to eat at home. Relax and enjoy Villa Loretta.

The Lanzarote Region
Lanzarote is situated just 70 miles off the coast of Africa and is the most easterly of the Canary Islands. The island is 37 miles (60km) long and 12 miles (20 km) wide, making it the fourth largest island in the Canaries.
Lanzarote enjoys a mild dry climate with average daytime temperatures ranging from about 21C (70F) in January to 29C (84F) in August. Annual rainfall is just 140mm (5.5 inches). This makes Lanzarote the perfect year-round destination.
As with the other Canary Islands, Lanzarote is Volcanic in origin. Due to the recent eruptions during the 18th and 19th Centuries, many parts of Lanzarote appear to be from another world, often described as 'lunar' or 'Martian', so much so that parts of the film 'Planet of the Apes' were shot here. The dry climate (and lack of erosion) means that the Volcanic Landscape appears much as it did just after the eruptions.
Amongst the many stunning Volcanic features of Lanzarote is the longest Volcanic Tunnel in the world, the Atlantida Tunnel, which is over 7 km long and includes the La Cueva de los Verdes and Jameos del Agua.
Despite the Volcanic nature of the island, Lanzarote has several beautiful white beaches such as at Playa Blanca and Papagayo. The beach at Famara is fantastic, especially for watching the surfing and the long main beach in Puerto del Carmen is plenty big enough for everyone to spread out and enjoy in peace.
Local authority regulations on the amount and style of development mean that there is no billboard advertising and no high rise buildings in Lanzarote (with the exception of the Grand Hotel in Arrecife)
Puerto del Carmen Area
Supermarket: 2 minute walk (160m) to a Spar. Also a 22 minute walk (1.6km) east to Lidl at No. 1, Calle Juan Carlos I. A large well-stocked supermarket with a great meat counter for your BBQ. When paying just ask a staff member to call a taxi for you and they will happily do so.
Local restaurants/ bars: 2 minute walk (95m).
Biosfera Shopping Plaza: 13-15 minute walk (950m) to No. 15, Calle Juan Carlos I. Four floors of shops, restaurants and amusements including Starlight Open Air cinema playing 2 English movies each evening, a billiard and pool hall, crazy golf, and Cine6D virtual reality motion rides.
Harbour: 4-5 minute walk (280m) down the steps or a 6-7 minute walk (450m) down the walk-way, which is ideal for prams/buggies or wheelchairs. There are a wide choice of restaurants and bars in the harbour area. Great for lunch, dinner or a drink while an adventure playground keeps the children amused. Lots of choice of boat trips from the harbour including trips on a submarine, scuba diving and the Water Taxi to the marina at Puerto Calero.
Beaches: Playa Chica, a 14 minute walk (1km) is a pretty little cove surrounding by volcanic rocks, which is perfect for snorkelling and diving (a dive school is located here). Other sports enjoyed at Playa Chica are parascending, banana boat rides, single and double jet-skiing, Crazy UFO and Fly-boarding. The main beach, Playa Grande, a 20 minute walk (1.6km) is a long stretch of fine grain sand with calm waters, a very gentle shelf and little current so paddling and swimming are very safe.
Main Beach Road: 18 minute walk (1.4km) to the western end of Avenida de las Playas, the long 'strip' of restaurants, cafes, bars and shops of the greatest variety that runs parallel to Playa Grande. Beach-side, the palm-tree lined promenade is perfect for strolling, jogging, cycling on the red brick cycling lane (many bicycle renting places available), or just people watching. Don’t forget taxi fares are inexpensive in Lanzarote if you don’t want to walk home.
Puerto Calero: 50 minute walk (4km) go west along the coastal walkway and you will reach the marina at Puerto Calero, where there are lovely restaurants and gorgeous shopping. This walk is very popular with our clients. There is also a water taxi from the Old Town harbour if you don’t fancy the walk either one way or both ways. The restaurants in Puerto Calero are perfect for a long lazy lunch. The Water Taxi back costs 6 Euros and the last one leaves about 5pm.
Golf: Lanzarote Golf - an 18-hole public course, 8 minute drive (4.8km).
Zoo: Rancho Texas Lanzarote Park, a 7 minute drive (5km). Displays of birds of prey, sea lions, and parrots and cockatoos and you can also see other exotic birds and reptiles, including the Komodo dragon. Also a cowboy lasso and whip show, and the children can enjoy canoeing and gold-panning, pony riding, and then cool off in the pool.
Go Karting: Gran Karting, a go-karting track 15 minutes drive north-east (13km).
National Park: Timanfaya National Park, the natural wonder of Lanzarote has a unique 'Martian' landscape and rare plant species. To the El Diablo restaurant, a 30 minute drive (22km). A unique experience is it to take a camel ride across the volanic landscape (20 minute drive, 17km).
Water Park: Aqualava Water Park, a geothermally-heated water park, 30 minutes drive south-west (29km).
Markets: every Friday 10am - 4pm 100 stalls set up at the Plaza Varadero near the Old Town harbour for locally sourced fruit, vegetables and flowers, as well as handmade craft items, jewellery and clothes (600m). At nearby Tias, the Saturday morning 9am - 2pm Farmers market is an ideal place to purchase fresh locally produced vegetables much cheaper than the supermarkets (10 minute drive 6km north-east). Also, the biggest open-air street market in Lanzarote is on Sunday mornings 9am - 2pm in Teguise (28 minute drive 21km north-east).
Festivals: late February, revel at the Carnival or if you’re visiting in July, don’t miss the folklore performances, folk singing, dancing and vibrant processions at the Feast of St Carmen, patron saint of the city and fishermen.
