Villas vs Apartments in Lanzarote: Which is Right for You?

Posted on 18 February 2019


Once you’ve made the obvious choice to come to the beautiful island of Lanzarote for your holidays, the next step can be a tricky one. Do you opt for a private villa or a private apartment for your self-catering holiday in Lanzarote?

Accommodation can make or break a holiday, so in this post, we’ll run through the pros and cons of villas and apartments to help you make an informed choice.

In the heart of the action

If you prefer to be in amongst a lively resort, an easy walk from the beach and the bars alike, then one of our Lanzarote apartments definitely fits the bill. Apartment Lolita sits in the heart of the bustling resort of Puerto del Carmen, famed for its nightlife along the Avenida de las Playas.

You won’t be short of things to do on your doorstep either - from lazy afternoons over cocktails on the beachfront to sunbathing, snorkelling and more, the resort is your oyster. However, if you prefer endless serenity instead of boisterous vitality, then a villa might be more your speed.

A serene stay

Many holidaymakers crave a bit of peace and quiet while on vacation, as a means of escape from a hectic everyday life - and hours relaxing on a sun lounger totally undisturbed can be just the remedy. Our selection of private villas in Playa Blanca and beyond offer unbeatable privacy for you and your family.

Add a private pool to the equation and you needn’t ever leave the villa for the duration of your stay… Well, maybe to replenish the wine rack and enjoy a trip out to a high-quality restaurant.

Couples vs. cohorts

Choosing between an apartment or a villa isn’t just about whether you prefer a lively atmosphere over peace and quiet. Your choice should also reflect the type of holiday you’re proposing. If you’re jetting off on a romantic break with your significant other, then one of our chic one-bed apartments to rent in Lanzarote with a beautiful sea view such as Apartment Puerto del Mar, might be exactly what you want.

Conversely, if you're embarking on a group holiday with a cohort of pals, then you can aim big with a sprawling villa such as the Villa Ocean View, which sleeps up to ten guests. Getting all your friends around the same private pool during the day and on the same terrace in the evening is a rare treat, so if you’re planning a group trip, a villa is your best bet.

Of course, amongst our portfolio we also have small-scale Lanzarote holiday villas, such as the joyously-named Casa Feliz, which sleeps four. A villa needn’t be just the choice of a large group of holidaymakers, as they work just as well for a small family holiday.


The bottom line is that the choice is yours, and our wide variety of Lanzarote accommodation options means that your perfect stay is only a few clicks away. Browse our range of apartments and villas, or send us an email at - we’re always happy to help!
