“My favourite getaway”

I've stayed at the Famara Studio apartment four times in the last three years and I'll be returning again in June 2013. It was first recommended to me by a friend and since then I've recommended it to people who had a glorious stay. What's so great about Famara is that it feels 'off the beaten track'. So whilst everyone else from your flight piles on to coaches to the main resorts, you hop in a taxi or pick up your hire car and head away from the crowds. In less than half an hour you'll meet the road that runs down to Famara beach.

The studio is at the top of a low hill and is presided over by the utterly amazing El Risco - a dramatic black cliff of volcanic origin. The studio itself is very private with its own sundeck and spectacular views of the sea, cliff and surrounding area. Inside, it has everything you could possibly want from a simple, laid back holiday. There's a comfortable double bed, a day bed/sofa (laden with cushions and pillows for comfort), a table and chairs for dining and a little kitchen which is spotlessly clean and functional with more than enough room to spare. The bathroom is stockpiled with fresh towels and although small, it's all you would need and there's always plenty of hot water. What makes the studio particularly lovely are the little touches of colour everywhere and the handmade mirrors and pictures which give it an artistic feel.

You could absolutely be forgiven for never venturing further than the studio (there's a small supermarket and the fabulous beach just a few minutes away), but if you manage to prize yourself away, there's loads to do and see.

A two minute drive/or 20 minute walk down hill is Caleta de Famara, a little fishing village, where you'll find 5 or 6 good places to eat fresh fish and drink a cold beer overlooking the waves. And if you feel like heading there for breakfast, there's a great little place that does coffee and pastries in the morning. It's also where you'll find the surf shops, the village beach (lovely for children) and a couple of good basic supermarkets.

If you want to explore the National Park, Wine Region or the old capital of Teguise, you're in a prime spot to set off from. Rachel has compiled a book containing maps and info on places to visit which you'll find in the studio when you arrive. If you don't feel like driving, there's lots of great walking and cycling in the area. Plus, the local bus to and from Teguise is always on time and its fun to travel with the locals.

In terms of hospitality you won't find better anywhere. Rachel, the owner, gives a genuinely warm welcome and speaks English and Spanish perfectly. Plus, she is always happy to help with any advice or recommendations.

In a nutshell, if you're looking for a relaxing holiday surrounded by sea, sun, cliffs and sky, then Famara is for you. And if you want a beautiful, private and unique place to stay, then Studio Famara is for you.
