Villa Sonrisa

South terrace

4 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 12
Lajares, La Oliva, Fuerteventura, Canary Islands
For us a villa in the sun had to have the perfect west facing aspect for sunset family dinners on the terrace. It needed to be close enough to fantastic restaurants & local amenities (like mains electricity, internet, supermarket, pharmacy, kids playpark etc), rural enough for open views & tranquility, & as close as possible to the surf. Plus it needed thoughtful safety & entertainment for young children to ensure parents can relax.

We'd been renting villas for years in the Canaries & had not found the perfect house so in 2012 built our own. It's full of unique features like the 12 x 7m sports pitch with 6 hole putting green & rare features like the electrically heated pool to ensure warmth even in the winter. Two master bedrooms have super kingsize beds, every mattress & all linen in the villa is the...

Lovely pool and plenty of outside space, lots of stuff to keep the kids occupied whilst the grownups relax, a little !! The house is a home from home with everything you need and Emma can`t do enough to help out if needed.

I've had the good fortune to stay in a lot of villas over the last 10 years and I have to say this comes top of the pile. It has everything a family could ask for and more. We travelled with my mum and dad...More

About the neighbourhood
Lajares is home to local Spanish and the cosmopolitan surfers who’ve made Fuerte their home. There are no ‘bucket and spade’ package tourists here, nor any hotels or apartment complexes. The atmosphere is very chilled out and international. The village has eight surf shops and businesses, nine cafes, bars and very good restaurants (the closest to our house is run by a Michelin 2 star chef!), a hardware store, pharmacy, a few boutique shops, art gallery, two art schools, camel farm, kids play park, active community area for performances and markets and a very well equipped supermarket. It’s regarded as the coolest village on the island.

It does not have late nightlife or discos, although some of the bars have live music and misbehaviour, & Corelejo is only 10 mins away if this is what...

How to get there
How to get there

Puerto Del Rosario Airport (FUE) is 35 mins drive. Guests staying at Villa Sonrisa are recommended to enjoy our Toyota Rav4 during their stay- a 5 door 4x4 for half the price of a rental car and no queuing or paperwork to collect it- saving you hours of hassle!

Locally you can walk or use the villa bicycle to nip in and out of the village.

Lanzarote Airport (ACE) is also very close- about 100 mins away- 15 min taxi to Corellejo, 30 min ferry to Lanzarote, 30 min taxi to airport- so we often fly via Lanzarote.


Lajares village centre with lots of cafes, bars and restaurants is less than 1000m away/ few minute walk. Nearest restaurant is only 300m walk & it's one of the best on the island!

Most surf, beaches and attractions approx 5-20 mins drive aw...
