We moved to Lanzarote in 2004 and have never looked back.
We used to stay at Villa Ann for our holidays (which got more and more frequent, the closer we came to leaving the UK) and we never dreamt that we would end up owning it. We did used to make plans about what we would do with the place, like so many of us do when we are on holiday and thinking of living the dream.
The previous owners approached us in the middle of 2003 and told us that they were selling up because they wanted to go off travelling and asked if we would be interested in purchasing the property. Well, you can imagine how excited we were. Up to that point, we had only been looking around to buy a small apartment for holidays but when the opportunity came up, we decided to go for it.
We set the wheels in motion and went about selling up in the UK. There was a lot to do, selling houses, possessions, cars etc etc. We gave up our jobs, packed up our remaining possessions and came to live in Lanzarote in June 2004.
We immediately took over the previous owners bookings on the villa and set about developing a new website, improving the marketing and slowly started to build up our own client base. We now have people who return year after year and we are always pleased to see them.
We have carried out extensive works on Villa Ann, Casa Ida and the surrounding areas and are very proud of our achievements over the years. We love it when people leave having had a fabulous holiday and we are always excited to meet new people.
We do hope that you have a wonderful holiday in Lanzarote. There are so many beautiful and spectacular sights to see and we look forward to meeting you.
