Why Patrick Ayling chose El Cotillo
We first came to Fuerteventura on a surfing and windsurfing expedition in the 1980s. We fell in love with the place so much that we have returned almost every year since without fail. Last year an opportunity to realise a dream presented itself to become owners of a property in a place we also call home. El Cotillo has a rustic charm that is irresistible. It offers the peace of a getaway destination with the convenience of shops and facilities to hand and is surrounded by beautiful beaches.
What makes this Apartment unique
We have equipped the apartment with love, care and practicality. The fully equipped kitchen offers everything from toast to Sunday roast. Or if you prefer to spoil yourself, a sunset walk followed by a meal in one of the authentic local restaurants is a must. A drink with the locals in one of the numerous bars followed by stargazing on the upper terrace on a sun bed before bed is a favourite of ours. Morning is greeted with stunning views and watching the sun rise over the mountains with a cup of Nesspresso in your pyjamas (if you are up early enough!). Life slows down on Fuerteventura and we always say it has a way of letting you catch your breath.

Very nice apartment clean and has everything you need.
Sunbeds are very uncomfortable and outside seating area not very inviting chairs need cushions but overall very nice.
Comfortable and spacious apartment
Lovely spacious apartment with two very good terraces. We mostly used the top terrace which had sun loungers and a table and chairs. Maybe a parasol would have been useful but I imagine with the strong winds that it might not last long. Everything provided in the kitchen and lots of books and DVDs. El Cotillo has lots of restaurants and cafes so you are never short of finding somewhere to eat. It is a little scruffy in places with unfinished and tumble down buildings but that is typical of many holiday resorts in Spain. Overall it has a charming feel.
Everything we needed
Great place for El Cotillo
Great place, quiet and comfortable.
Everything we hoped for - and more!
This apartment gave us the perfect base for exploring the island and everything was so convenient. We had all the equipment we needed in this spacious apartment and it so light and airy, in a lovely location with views of both beach and mountains. El Cotillo has everything you might need - lots of places to eat, nearby supermarket and wide expanses of beach. This was our first visit but we hope to be back!
