Thanks to its pristine beaches, family friendly vibes and guaranteed good weather pretty much any time of year, Lanzarote has always been a front-runner for holiday home investment.

When considering making the jump onto the Lanzarote property ladder, it’s worth bearing in mind that you’ll have to pay about 10 per cent of the purchase price again to cover taxes and legal fees.
Then again, with families queuing up to rent holiday homes in the region, you won’t be short of opportunities to make a little extra dosh from your sunny retreat!
Here are some of our favourite buys on the market at the minute…
Two-bed apartment, Teguise, €138,000
This cosy apartment in a secure, private complex is a super opportunity for a home away from home that won’t break the bank. For those searching for sun, sea and sangrias, this small but smartly decorated pad is everything you’ve been looking for.
The bright living/dining room is served by an open plan kitchen, while a hallway leads off to two bedrooms and a bathroom. Surrounded by beautifully kept gardens and just around the corner from a serene communal swimming pool, you’ll never want to leave this tranquil escape.

Four-bed house, Tias, €370,000
In keeping with the local vernacular, this traditional Lanzarote villa features crisp white walls and a covered verandah. Laid out over three levels, tiled floors keep the interior cool in the summer heat.
Situated at the rear of the property, a large patio offers stunning views of the sea and mountains, along with an outlook over the private pool. We reckon it’s the perfect spot to pull up a sun lounger and keep an eye on the kids as they splash about. The property also features a basement with private access so this section of the property could easily be turned into a self-contained apartment and rented out.
Tias is very close to the coast so those plentiful sunny days can be spent relaxing on the beach. The property's proximity to the airport will no doubt appeal to holidaymakers, as well as cutting down travel time should you need to fly back and forth.

Four bed villa, Tias, €420,000
You won’t be getting lost on the way to the beach with these panoramic views. This splendid home is located in an exclusive, family-orientated neighbourhood in Tias. Well-connected to supermarkets and within easy reach of some of the best beaches on the island, this is a super location to own a home.
The sizeable ground floor will provide a great extra space if you have friends or family staying, while the light and airy dining room is the perfect place to entertain and host in the evening.
Decorated with contemporary flair, the home comes fully furnished and is incredibly well kept. You won't have problems renting it out to other families either, as the swimming pool can be safely sectioned off to protect little ones.
We can’t stop staring at those incredible volcanoes in the distance!

Converted Finca, Macher, €895,000
This beautiful 200-year-old finca, or ranch, is one of the prettiest properties we've spotted in Lanzarote. Delightfully rural, this detached home on the outskirts of Macher was once a farmhouse that’s been lovingly converted into a four-bed property.
It's charming original features remain, including characterful ceiling beams and a stunning inner courtyard. The grounds boast large gardens and numerous tranquil patios, so you won’t be short of places to sit down with a good book.
Close to the luxurious marina of Puerto Calero, you’re in easy reach of a little nightlife if you feel like venturing out for dinner. Other sweeteners include a large heated pool in the style of local artist Cesar Manrique and a camel stable (yep, you read that right) that’s been renovated for use as a self-contained office or gym.
There’s also a second sizeable annex with two bedrooms and bathrooms which could provide a second healthy income if desired.

If you want to splurge on a fabulous holiday home that you'll be pained to leave, then this stunning five-bed villa might be just the ticket. Situated above the promenade of Puerto Calero, it enjoys unrivalled sea views and ample sunbathing spots.
The property is divided into two parts – the main house and a separate one-bed apartment which can be rented out for an additional income. Arranged over three levels, the main house is incredibly spacious with an open plan layout that's perfect for socialising. We reckon we could have a lot of fun here…
