We had never leased a holiday apartment before and were slightly apprehensive. Victor (the owner) couldn't have been more relaxed and helpful! He was a lovely host, presenting us with local wine on arrival. The apartment actually looks like the photos! It was cleaned up to a very high standard, had a tv, microwave, electric cooker and all crockery needed. Although the apartment has one double bed, it also has a fold out bed in the living room. There were towels. No electric shaver socket, so bring a razor! A little patio with a seating bench for evening meals or what we used it for: wine/beer and nibbles before dinner!
We were delighted with the location too. We found Orzola to be a quiet fishing village - there are no night clubs but at least 3 restaurants point to the fact at peak season it must attract some tourist trade. This is the port for the ferry crossing to La Graciosa. We didn't take this trip though this seemed to be a popular one for tourists!
Nearby (we drove, but you could walk in about 20 mins) was a beautiful lagoon with white sand beaches and surrounded by lava outflows. This was a relatively secluded lagoon and there were never more than 20 other groups there (it never felt crowded - this was a getaway for locals). The sea was so clear we went snorkeling and saw ornate wrasse, catfish, flatfish and a sea cucumber.
We loved it here and it was the perfect place to relax and chill. It didn't look like there were many families here as the location didn't particularly cater for children.
Thank you Victor and your wife for making our holiday so enjoyable and stress-free!

A fantastic location and just a couple of streets from the ferry port and restaurants. A tranquil and clean place, lovely and helpful owner. Parking easy on the road.
