Fuerteventura, Canary Islands
If you are looking for peace and tranquillity then Villa Gecko is the place for you. Situated on the Eastern of the exclusive Origo Mare development the location is simply stunning, with views of the wild Atlantic and Lanzarote to the north contrasting with the harsh beauty of extinct volcanoes along the Eastern horizon.The villa's location is on the northern shore of Fuerteventura roughly equidistant between Corralejo and El Cotillo and some 10 minutes drive north of Lajares.Fuerteventura is the closest Canary Island to the African coast with only 100km separating Punta de la Entillada from Cape Juby in Morocco and is the second largest (after Tenerife) of all the islands. Fuerteventura is on the same latitude as Florida and Mexico which probably accounts for the almost 3000hours of sunshine each year.Fuerteventura is encompassed by... Read more

This is our second visit to the Origo Mare resort but the first time we stayed at Villa Gecko. As a family we enjoyed the facilities of pool, gym and exercise classes offered in the resort. The villa was well equipped - better than the P & V villas in that there were 2 comfortable sofas in the lounge area...

One of those few places we are reluctant to review because? it might get full up and we may not get a space again..

About the neighborhood
Origo Mare is situated 9km north of Lajares, roughly equidistant between El Cotillo and Corralejo in the north of the island. An ideal place to stay for those looking to go and explorer the the real Fuerteventura with its rugged coastline making it a haven for both walkers and surfers alike.

How to get there
Airport: Fuerteventura Airport: 29.8 mi
There are two main routes to the villa from the airport the shorter by about 15 minutes takes you in land and across the mountains through La Oliva. The second route although slightly longer and our preferred route takes you along the eastern coastline offering you wonderful views of the coast line. Along with many fantastic opportunities to break the journey and really start to relax and get into the holiday mood it really has to be the way to start your holiday at Villa Gecko.
