A List of Properties for Sale in Lanzarote
Lanzarote is the fourth largest island in the Canaries and the most easterly. it is also one of the most sought after island for property buyers considering the Canary Islands as a possible future investment. At only 37 kilometres long and 20 kilometres at its widest point Lanzarote enjoys an all year round mild climate and is ideal for holidays or relaxed living.
Although the island is part of the volcanic range within the Canaries there have been no eruptions on the island since the early 19th century. The dry climate has helped to maintain the volcanic look of the island and many parts of the island appear in much the same way as they did following those earlier volcanic activities. However, there are still many golden beaches around the island on which to enjoy a lazy afternoon sunbathing including those of Playa Blanca and others.
Property for sale in Lanzarote is often snapped up quickly as more people head to the island in search of a relaxed lifestyle compared to its nearby sister islands of Tenerife and Gran Canaria. Property prices have been rising steadily over the past 3-5 years as there becomes a shortage of quality properties for holiday homes and permanent residence on the island. Due to strict building regulations imposed on the island it is not possible to build anything of a high rise nature and you will notice the distinct lack of billboards on the island unlike its nearby neighbour Tenerife.
