For many people, Lanzarote is the perfect holiday destination. Thanks to major tourist resorts, unspoilt coastline and large cosmospolitan cities, there is something for everyone, and a summer which lasts the whole year and leaves the island basking in sunshine means that everyone wins when it comes to Lanzarote.
Choice of resorts isn’t the only choice that travellers have when they head for the sunshine of the Canary Islands. There is also a huge choice when it comes to Lanzarote Holiday apartments.
Also known as Villas, single apartments are the epitome of private luxury when it comes to Lanzarote holiday apartments.
The majority of these luxurious single apartments appear more like a private home. They often have their own land which can or can’t include a swimming pool as well as decked and gardened areas.
Ideal for the holiday maker who wants a sense of privacy so that they can make their own noise, or be away from hotels which can be noisy and wishes to enjoy a full sense of relaxation, single apartments are the perfect choice for those who want their own time and space.
The next step up from completely private apartments are the Lanzarote holiday apartments which are set as part of a duplex. Within these small complexes there may be four or five apartments in a small community area which are set around a pool or a central area. Although there are unlikely to be any shared facilities such as bars, there is more of a sense of community in these areas.
These are often built to house timeshare or privately owned apartments where the owners wish to have a sense of community without feeling the need to be involved.
Many of these apartments have bedrooms, living areas and kitchens as well as balcony areas where one can enjoy the sunshine or evening atmosphere in relative privacy.
A complex of apartments all built on the same site is known as a complex. Complexes are often popular with travellers who enjoy the privacy of their own apartment but also wish to be part of a community where they can socialise with other holiday makers.
These are often known as holiday villages and whilst some of the apartments are owned by tourist companies or private owners who rent them out.
These holiday villages often have a variety of facilities which the inhabitants are welcome to use and enjoy. Depending on the exact complex, they might include restaurants, bars and shops as well as facilities for children and families – although there is obviously no need for any users to be tied to using these.
It could be the case that there are certain rules about behaviour within these villages so as not to annoy or interfere with other residents but many prefer these villages as they allow the holiday maker to socialise with other residents and enjoy all of the usual benefits of a hotel holiday without all of the trappings or lack of freedom.
