Whether you’re looking to fly and flop, get active or party hard, Tenerife has you covered – the largest and most popular Canary Island has something for everyone.

You’ll find cheap villas in and around resorts like Playa de las Américas, Los Cristianos and Costa Adeje. Beyond these tourist hotspots, consider staying close to Garachico or Buenavista del Norte.


Think Fuerteventura, think beaches. From Sotavento and Cofete to Corralejo and Esmeralda, the island has some of the best in the Canaries – and that’s saying something. But they’re not just made for lazing about on – if you’re into wind or watersports, you’ll be in your element.

For a classic beach break experience, rent a villa in Corralejo. For something more family-friendly head to Caleta de Fuste. For waves and wind, Jandía is a good choice.

Gran Canaria

Similar to Tenerife, Gran Canaria has a wide appeal – whether you’re a sun worshipper, a party animal or into culture. What really makes it stand out though is its diverse landscape – hence the nickname ‘the miniature continent’.

Las Palmas, San Agustín, Meloneras, Playa del Inglés and Maspalomas, among others, are all excellent places to go for your villa holiday. If you’re staying inland to take on some of the island’s best hikes, consider a villa with a private pool.


From the architecture of César Manrique to its volcanic craters and cones, Lanzarote feels, at times, otherworldly. If you’re in to the wonders of nature, this island is for you.

Top locations for your villa holiday include Arrecife, Tías and Yaiza. If you want more of sun, sea and sand experience, resorts like Puerto del Carmen, Costa Teguise and Playa Blanca are highly recommended.

La Palma

La Palma is known as La Isla Bonita (the Beautiful Island) for a good reason. Everywhere you go, spectacular scenery greets you, from captivating volcanic desertscapes and vividly green forests to black sand beaches.

Look for villas in the capital Santa Cruz de La Palma, as well as in and around Los Cancajos, Puerto Naos, Los Llanos and Los Canarios.

La Gomera

Thanks to its hilly and lush interior, La Gomera has carved out a reputation as a hiker’s paradise. If you love the great outdoors, then make a beeline for this island and its many trails.

While you’ll find villas dotted about the island – particularly near to and in the capital San Sebastián de la Gomera – some people opt to stay in nearby Tenerife and take the ferry over.

El Hierro

The smallest and most remote of the main Canary Islands, El Hierro offers pure escape from the everyday norm. So, if your holiday checklist includes a decided lack of tourists, a traditional ambiance and unspoilt natural beauty, this to place to be. Your best bet for a villa is in the capital Valverde, as well as in La Frontera.
