Holiday Houses – A Nice Way to Relax

Holiday houses in Spain continue to be popular with UK buyers. But that very popularity sometimes drives prices up in the prime areas and makes for crowded restaurants and shopping districts. So, why not consider an offshore location that’s closer than you think? The Canary Islands are a favorite destination for many who want their Spanish vacation homes to be located in an exotic island environment. In this article, we’ll present some information about the Canary Islands for those who want offshore holiday homes with a decidedly Spanish flair.

The Canary Islands are located in the Atlantic Ocean and are less than 100 miles from the northwest coast of Africa. Consisting of seven islands where the climate is ideal year round, the Canaries have over 900 miles of coastline dotted with spectacular beaches and resorts. Each island has its own unique character but they have in common spectacular beaches with all the usual seaside activities. Although off the coast of Africa, the Canary Islands are thoroughly Europeanized and over 50{363bd2a98d15c88227082edbeda0d5f103110265c93869472e5f1256b705561e} of the people who visit it them make return trips.

Tenerife is the most vibrant and energetic island in the Canaries. Known for its nightlife and party atmosphere, Tenerife has numerous pubs, bars and nightclubs. Also known for its restaurants, Tenerife is a great location for those who want their holiday houses to be in the center of all the action. Be sure to consider holiday homes in Playa Paraiso and Puerto de Santiago, which are a bit quieter and more family-oriented. Puerto de Santiago is a small and picturesque fishing village that has spectacular views of volcanic cliffs and lava formations. Playa Paraiso is a perfect place for holiday houses to rent if you enjoy ocean views. An especially popular location favored by Britons for holiday cottages is Playa de Las Americas, with its attractive seaside promenade and restaurants catering to European palates.

For those who prefer to locate their holiday rentals or homes in an area with a slower and more relaxed pace, there’s the beautiful island of Fuerteventura. Its name means “strong winds” and it’s one of the most peaceful islands in the Canaries. Fuerteventura is largely undiscovered and has over 150 beaches that give way to mountains in the interior. So, whether you’re interested in a beachside holiday villa or one of the Spanish style houses that dot the hillsides, Fuenteventura is a mellow and relaxing place that’s perfect for families. And if you’re a watersport enthusiast, know that the island is home to the world speedsurfing championships and, true to its name, is a globally known center for windsurfing.

A holiday cottage in the Canary Islands is just a 4-hour flight from Great Britain. While holiday houses in Spain (on the mainland) offer UK vacationers enjoyable but typical vacations, the Canaries offer an experience that’s both exotic and adventurous.
