Winter Vacation Rentals in Lanzarote are Ideal If You Long for Some Winter Sun!
Many people are choosing winter vacation rentals in Lanzarote as it is one of the closest winter sun destinations from the UK at just four hours’ flying time. With the disappointment of another poor summer and little prospect of topping up your tan, it is very tempting to look to the winter months as an opportunity to get away and book bargain winter holiday rentals for some much needed sunshine. In Lanzarote, during the months of November through to February, temperatures usually rise to the mid-twenties Celsius during the day but can fall to 12° Celsius at night. If this sounds tempting but holiday cash is in short supply why not try privately rented villas and apartments which you can book direct with the private owners? Savvy holidaymakers look online for privately rented holiday homes in Lanzarote and book their own flights and travel insurance. You can book bargain winter holiday rentals without leaving the comfort of your own home!
Lanzarote is a year round holiday destination because of the excellent weather, so there is usually good availability on flights to Lanzarote for most dates and cheap flights are often available even if you have booked last minute winter holiday rentals. If you book winter vacation rentals on Lanzarote but are planning to tour the Canary Islands then internal Fuerteventura and Tenerife flights are also available.
Popular resorts to book winter vacation rentals include Arrecife (the largest town and capital of Lanzarote), Playa Blanca, Costa Teguise and Puerto del Carmen which is the busiest resort on the island. Self-catering privately rented villas and apartments booked direct with the private owners are becoming increasingly popular as the economic recession continues. You can even book an ‘Eco Yurt’ which runs on wind and solar power and is a fantastic example of sustainable living.
Those who book bargain winter holiday rentals on Lanzarote looking for an action packed holiday will not be disappointed as there is plenty to do including trekking, climbing, caving, windsurfing, swimming, diving, snorkelling, jet-skiing, parasailing, surfing and fishing. You can also book sea kayaking instruction (from beginner to advanced level), as well as kayaking expeditions to explore the island's coast and marine life. For those who book winter vacation rentals and enjoy cycling there is a new Mountain Bike Route on Lanzarote which covers over 200 km of the island's interior.
Golf is another popular holiday activity for those who book winter vacation rentals on Lanzarote. With its fantastic climate and a number of new Golf Courses planned, Lanzarote is set to be one of the up and coming winter golf destinations. The oldest course on the island, at Costa Teguise, was opened in 1978 and was designed by John Harris. Lanzarote's second golf course is close to the resort of Puerto del Carmen and was designed by Ron Kirby. More courses are planned for the southern resort of Playa Blanca and the Marina resort of Puerto Calero. So make a note to look for privately rented villas and apartments close to these resorts as a base for a sunny winter golf getaway!
Some people like to just lounge around in the sun by the pool or beach and rarely stray far from their villa or apartment winter vacation rentals, but others like to go on day trips or sightseeing and there is plenty on offer for everyone. The Volcano Park at Timanfya is a well-liked tourist attraction featuring colourful dormant volcanic scapes. The Cultural Centres on the island, developed by the artist and architect Cesar Manrique, are unique. They incorporate his minimalist design with traditional island architecture and the exceptional natural beauty of Lanzarote. Or why not try a day trip to the neighbouring island of Fuerteventura – you can catch a ferry from Playa Blanca.
