“lovely villa in great location”

we spent a long time looking at villas before settling on villa bianchi. as we were staying with our young son and my mother , we had certain criteria. we needed 3 bedrooms , a quiet location but within an easy stroll to "the strip". it also had to have a nice heated pool and not be overlooked/shaded from the front as we were staying over xmas/new year period and we were keen to make the most of every minute of subshine. villa bianchi ticked all the boxes and on the whole it is a very well specced villa (certainly the nicest we have stayed in so far in lanzarote) and overall we were very pleased with the villa , its facilities and location. although we were very pleased with the whole experience , its not to say that the villa was not without faults. overall it was in generally good condition but could do with a little decorative tlc internally and externally (to make it stunning , as some others on same road appear , rather than just acceptable) the en-suite bathroom and kitchen could both do with a deep steam clean , both being a little grubby in places. the dishwasher smelt pretty grim (we didn't need to use it fortunately). the double bed was a very firm but ok for us but one of the mattresses in the first twin was very narrow (no dresser/table was an issue too) and both metal framed bed frames in the second twin squeaked enough to wake the dead if even just breathed upon (upon inspection one frame had snapped). for the second night we moved bases and mattresses around so everyone could get a good nights sleep. while calle francis is essentially a quiet road , it is on a bus route and due to the one way system further down town and a very rough road surface we really struggled to sleep for the first few nights due to the volume of heavy traffic (it is a 20kph limit but I don't think anyone told the bus drivers!). we had a couple of windy nights during our stay and there seemed to be something banging about on the roof that kept us awake too. our ensuite shower was fabulous but the enclosure in the second bathroom was very , very small so we ended up having to share ours with the rest of the party. unusually for lanzarote , we never ran out of hot water at shower time but the hot water took 3 mins plus to get to the kitchen tap. other annoying "little details" included some bulbs blown , creaky locks/door hinges (a little oil would save waking the whole villa in the middle of the night) , a very, very limited range of satellite channels and a rather hit and miss Wi-Fi connection (this is obviously beyond the owners control as it is a town based open service as opposed to a domestic one). the pool was lovely and the "pool guy" was great (twice weekly visits) but in places the top coat of grp was starting to de-laminate leaving sharp edges. he explained that it had been re-finished but acknowledged that it had been a poor job that needed rectifying. also the shallow end is 1.5m deep , so may not be suitable for very small children. I would like to round off by saying that despite some of the niggles that we had with the villa , we would love to return there again as all in all it is really a great spot and a fabulous base for your holiday on lanzarote!

“Great Location”

Lovely Villa with good size pool(we paid for heating in september and it made for very comfortable swimming)Double bed in main bedroom had a very hard mattress and i came home with a bad back.This would stop me from booking again unless it was changed,twin beds in the second bedroom our friends found ok,although the room lacked any dressing table or mirrors and had very small bedside shelves,more suited to children than adults. Outside we could have done with more than one sunshade as it was difficult to get in the shade anywhere without moving the table and chairs every time.
The location was perfect for the Strip, just a 5 minute walk to the restaurants.
