Wow we have never had an October like this one, as I write is 30 degrees outside, fortunately with a cooling breeze. We have just finished preparing the casita for our new guests, steam cleaning in that heat was fun! We normally think about adding a blanket in November as the evenings get chillier, not so this year, still sleeping under one sheet.

This autumn has been the hottest since the 1980’s. In fact, the weather this year has just been exceptional, and that combined with record tourism numbers and occupancy mean that 2017 will go down in history as an incredible year for Lanzarote, so thank you to all of you who continue to visit and support our favourite little island.

At last the island is getting its act together re tourist letting. As you are aware all our villas are registered and have the blue V clearly displayed outside on the wall. Unfortunately this means two more taxes have been added, unfortunately we have had to put up our pricing. You will note that we do not charge extra for the family holiday period as we think this is really unfair, we are the only ones on the island who don’t increase at Christmas Easter and half term holidays. We hope to continue to give you a good value for money and personal service that we have hope has kept you returning for many years…yes we have many clients ( friends) who return year after year and we are extremely grateful for their loyalty to us. There are exiting things happening over here which Mand will be reporting on later. All I would say if you intend to visit us next year and you wish to stay in a specific villa, please get in early we are booking up even faster than normal.

Have a great weekend
