Dropped in the Atlantic with nothing nearby but Africa, the Canary Islands offer much more than initial impressions may convey.

Villas for family holidays, villas for large groups, romantic retreats - there's something for everyone.
Their position means that temperatures are warm all year round (always offering an escape from a rainy winter elsewhere!), while sympathetic developments ensure that al types of holiday visitor are catered or. Although well known for its resorts, don't be put off as you'll find so much more if you look hard enough. A villa in the Canary Islands could start at simple town centre apartments but really goes up as large or as remote or as specialised as you will ever need - with facilities ranging from the simply rustic to the all mod con modern technological extravaganza! Each of the islands has its own specific character - Tenerife, for example, is the largest island in the chain and has the highest peak in Spain set among its rocky landscape. With a number of resorts and high quality golf courses you can easily see why this is the most popular for visitors seeking a busy and fun holiday. Fuerteventura offers something totally different with its empty sandy beaches and wide range for your holiday villa in the Canary Islands. Visitors here are seeking fishing, windsurfing and solitude to go with simple food and total relaxation - and they find it every time. The word to summarise Lanzarote would be 'volcanic' - its terrain is scorched, arid and barren and provides a unique outlook that is totally at odds with the warm welcome and range of activities to be found here. La Palma is the ideal counter balance to this with its green slopes, interesting caves and cultural tours - while taking a villa in the Canary Islands in Gran Canaria puts you nearby to sun and sangria parties, plus some big down time on the soft white sand beaches. Whichever island you pick, head away from the resorts, and a little inland, and you'll find traditional living and peaceful surroundings.
