“Beautiful luxury villa”
Reviewed 5 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Once again I have not been disappointed with the villa's you provide. Villa Cora is a beautiful, luxurious villa. Situated about 15 mins drive from caleta de fuste, this villa provides total tranquility with its location. The quality furniture and facilities that are provided there are excellent. There is nothing our family could have needed more. Total paradise. Thanks again

“Close to ideal for a family group”
Reviewed 3 March 2013 for a stay in February 2013

A good sized house, superbly situated with excellent facilities, the heated pool and tennis court were greatly enjoyed by our family group. Situated centrally on the island it is a great base for easily reaching any of the points of interest. Vincent and Cecilia are helpful and very knowledgeable of the island, but are in no way intrusive. Our only small criticism is that the capacity of the water heater is too small for a large group like ours, however I know that Vincent is considering recommissioning the solar water heater which should add substantial hot water capacity.. Strongly recommend this house, we have been twice and would book again if we return to Fuerteventura.

“wonderful tranquillity”
Reviewed 15 January 2013 for a stay in November 2012

We booked Villa Cora online, on the basis of its excellent web-based reviews. Vincent responded extremely promptly and sent lots of extra photos to help us to decide whether to book.

Villa Cora is only about a 20 minute drive from the airport; the roads are clear and it is a lovely, stress-free way to start a holiday. It also made going home very easy (we didn't have to allow the extra 2 hours "just in case" that we would normally do elsewhere!) Vincent met us at the Villa and told us everything we needed to know, including recommending where to go on the island, places to eat etc. He also patiently explained his impressive hi-tech cinema-like TV with multiple remotes, which was most helpful and we enjoyed watching films in the evenings (the Canaries have fairly early sunsets most of the year).

It is only a 10 min drive from Caleta de Fuste which has bars, restaurants etc. We went in once and didn't go back because it is tourist-central, as many of the bigger towns in Fuerteventura appear to be, but were delighted that in Villa Cora it felt like we were in some remote spot despite being so close to everything. It is the last villa on a track bordered by large detached villas, but because of the space between the villas we never felt overlooked. The beautiful walled garden (a lot of work has gone into creating a garden with flowers and plants because Fuerteventura is so dry) was completely private. The heated pool was bigger than we expected and wonderful for midnight dips and there were lots of areas to lounge in and enjoy the sun and the sound of the birds around us. It was completely peaceful with the only noise coming from the put-put of local motorbikes weaving their way home to the nearby village at the end of the evening.

Villa Cora was essentially built by Vincent for himself and his family originally and it has the feel that no expense has been spared. It doesn't feel like a 'holiday home' because it is well furnished and it doesn't feel like the items in the villa have been chosen because they are cheap, or that they are hand-me-downs from the owner's house. As keen cooks we were particularly impressed with the Le Creuset pans!

We mostly ate in, because it is such a wonderfully pleasant place to be and the kitchen facilities were so wonderful. The supermarket 10 mins drive away (in Caleta) stocked fabulous food, and we enjoyed lots of fresh seafood from there including clams and fresh prawns, and wonderful cheese, meat, fruit and veg. Food and drink from the supermarket is extremely cheap and high quality in fuerteventura (we laughed in shock when the bill was totted up at the supermarket) so I would recommend this Villa in particular to those who like to eat well. We did eat out a bit all over the island but found the food variable in quality, due to the catering for tourists who seemed to mostly want to eat fish and chips. We did, however, find a wonderful place in a beautiful village called El Cotillo which is about 40 mins drive away with fabulous views over the sea and wonderful seafood, at which the locals seemed to eat.

Everything was spotless, and Vincent is justifiably proud of his house. As the property manager for a number of other properties on the island, not belonging to him, he is professional and well-informed.

I would thoroughly recommend this Villa. It is extremely spacious and would comfortably accommodate 10 people as advertised. We loved the heated pool and tennis court. We would recommend the lovely 'Roger Nadal' who provides Tennis Coaching at very reasonable prices 10 mins drive away, who is unfailingly positive and enthusiastic, and who gave so generously of his time, teaching us for far longer than we had paid for. Our very beginner tennis has improved tremendously in just 3 lessons so we are delighted.

“An exceptionally high quality villa with a pool and tennis court, rurally located but within 30 min drive of the airport”
Reviewed 13 January 2013 for a stay in November 2012

We had a great week at Villa Cora. We try to have 2 or 3 villa holdays a year so we've got plenty of experiences to compare Villa Cora to. Villa Cora is of exceptionally high quality. It has everything you need for a great holiday. Great pool, lovely garden and a useable tennis court. The house is beautiful and well-equipped with a great home cinema system and (optional) WI-FI. In a rural location but very conveniently situated within 30 minutes of the airport and 15 minutes of Mercadona. The owner, who lives fairly nearby and is easily contactable, manages holiday villas for a living and I think he aims to make his own villa the best on the island. My only concern is that too many people will find out about this gem and that it will become impossible to book.
