Hello! We are Christine, Jonathan and Natalie Robinson and we are the proud owners of Casa de Fortuna, our villa in Playa Blanca, Lanzarote. I am a Practice Manager for a firm of surveyors, my wife teaches piano lessons at a local preparatory school and our daughter is at Southampton University studying Physiotheraphy. We decided to buy our villa because we fell in love with the island whilst on holiday there and realised that it was the perfect place to go to relax and unwind and to escape from the cold, English winter months. There is, of course, guaranteed sunshine in Lanzarote all year round and we love it!
We chose to buy a villa in Playa Blanca because we feel that this is the most beautiful and peaceful part of the island. The scenery is stunning with breath-taking views of the volcanic mountains, the rugged coastline and the nearby beautiful beaches of Playa Flamingo and Playa Dorada. You can also reach the famous Papagayo beaches in just 20 minutes. Casa de Fortuna is only a 30 minute drive from the airport at Arrecife, which is ideal and the town of Playa Blanca and the Marina Rubicon, with their many fine restaurants and shops, are only a 5 minute drive from the villa. All in all, it is a quiet, unspoilt and well planned centre for relaxing and seeing the rest of the island.
Casa de Fortuna is a detached and spacious luxury villa. Being on a corner plot, it benefits from having more land and thus a beautiful, established, landscaped garden. We have furnished and maintain the villa and private heated pool to a very high standard with the help of our excellent Villa Manager, Emma-Jane and her husband who designed and looks after the garden and our Pool Manager, Stewart who cleans and maintains the pool. The villa also benefits from charming shutters with integral mosquito nets to guarantee a peaceful and cool night's sleep! We have tried to add those extra little things to our villa so that it becomes a home for our guests rather than just a holiday rental. We feel that we have achieved this but please 'come and stay' and see for yourself!
