Tired of snow shovels and pretending you love seeing ice clinging to branches?  Book flights to Fuerteventura this spring to ditch the chill for a week or two! Fuerteventura, meaning ‘strong winds,‘ is the second largest island in the Canary Islands.  The 125 miles of coastline ripple with aqua water merging into a cobalt blue.   Perfect for diving, fishing, and tanning on a raft drinking sangria.  In the Canary Islands, rethink villa.  Your Scoopettes report that villas means a home or condo and are not old, sprawling, rustic country homes. Prices vary with the season.  All villas have pools.

1.  If you are a golfer, you can roll out of bed, grab your clubs, walk a few steps, and slice away.  Large living room with an open kitchen, there is also a roof top solarium where you can watch the sunset and have a view of Castillo Port.  The rental group also points out the luxury of having insect catcher lights in each of the three bedrooms.   www.sunnyfuerteventura.com

2. A beauty that van der Rohe could have designed, this villa in Corralijo is faced with stark white stucco and sited against a black rock landscape.  The decor is also in a clean black and white.  Sit on one of many terraces with  views of the sea, mountains and Lanzarote Island.  Three bedrooms.   www.spain-holiday.com

3. El Cotillo villas are perched above a sandy beach and tidal lagoon where you can look for sea life.  Walk through  communal tropical garden to the sea, watch pink streaked sunsets.   An ideal place for a group as  individual apartments can be rented yet you can be together.  A complex with each apartment offering 2 bedrooms. Serene, depending on your neighbors.  www.holiday-rentals.co.uk



4. Hermanas De Castillo is a two bedroom apartment 5 minutes from the beach and lagoons.  Located on the edge of El Cotillo, a quiet fishing village, you are a walk to bars and restaurants.  40 minute drive from the Capital Puerto Del Rosario.   www.holidaylettings.co.uk

5. Ocean Gem is a two minute walk from Puerto Nuevo giving you privacy yet access to town. White sand beaches and lagoons are 5 – 15 minute walk south or north.  Bicycles are provided.  This one bedroom apartment has a patio with sea views .  www.holidaylettings.co.uk
