The Active Retreat Villa

The Active Retreat is hosted in a private villa in the village of Lajares, a small surf town in the northern end of Fuerteventura. The village is home to some quirky bars and restaurants, a fantastic bakery and cafe, plus a couple of small supermarkets for essentials.

The villa is located on the outskirts of the town, a 5 minute walk away. Close enough to enjoy the nightlife, far enough to be quiet.

The villa has wifi, a washing machine, TV and DVD player, spaces to relax and large gardens.

There are 5 bedrooms in the villa, 2 have their own private shower and one has it’s own private decking area, if you’d like a little more privacy during your stay. 


Relaxing Surroundings

The villa has an open plan living space, so is nice and relaxed without being too formal – perfect for socialising, but private enough that you can have your own space if you’d prefer.

The feel is relaxed and informal, so you can fully unwind during your stay.

The gardens contain a pool, hammocks, sun loungers, exercise area, an outside table, BBQ, so you can relax either inside or outside.

Comfort As Standard

Whether you’ve booked a budget room or a more luxurious private room, you’ll enjoy a comfortable stay.

The house is air conditioned throughout and the bedding is changed every week, so your stay will be fresh and comfortable.

It’s your home from home, so we want it to be clean, relaxed and enjoyable.

Dine In Style

All of our food is freshly prepared every day, so meal times are a real highlight of the retreat. We love our food, so we make sure it’s fantastic!

We typically dine inside, until the final night were we host a BBQ party! 

There’s nothing stopping us from eating outside though, given the Fuerteventura weather is fantastic all year round, so if you want to dine Al Fresco, we can!

The Island of Fuerteventura

Fuerteventura is the PERFECT place to enjoy a fitness holiday.

The weather is amazing all year round and we expect temperatures in the 20’s during the November/December period. All of the pictures here were taken in November and December.

The beaches are tropical, the water is crystal clear, warm and safe.

The beaches are full of miles of golden sand, so you won’t struggle to find a spot to relax in.

We make the world our gym, exercising outdoors where possible. We enjoy the water sports, the roads are quiet for cycling, the dunes are amazing to train in and as the least densely populated of the Canary Islands, we have so much space!

The towns are popular without being overcrowded and when it comes to relaxing, we have dozens of beautiful, quiet beaches to choose from.
