The second largest of the Canary Islands, Fuerteventura is renowned for its miles of unspoilt sandy beaches that seem to go on for ever. The island features spectacular desert-like and mountainous scenery. Just 95km from the coast of Africa, Fuerteventuara enjoys the year round warmth of Africa balanced by cooling Atlantic breezes.
The modern town of Caleta de Fuste (also known as El Castillo or Costa Caleta) is located on the east coast of the island and is centred around a sheltered family friendly beach where windsurfing is just one of the many watersports available. Most of the town's activity is based around the El Castillo Commercial Centre which has a variety of shopping available as well as a range of restaurants and cosy Spanish bars.
The development of Caleta de Fuste has been tastefully managed and in recent years has seen the addition of The Sheraton Hotel Resort and Fuerteventura Golf Course, home of the 2004 Spanish Open. Casa Flautista overlooks spectacular views of the golf course while our larger houses Villa Verano and Villa Primavera are situated right on the fairways.
A number of operators fly to Fuerteventura Airport from UK international airports. Flight times take around 4 hours.
Caleta de Fuste is just 10 minutes drive from Fuerteventura Airport. Our holiday home is situated in the Campo de Golf, minutes walk from the beach, shopping centre, bars and restaurants.

Local Cuisine & Eating Out
The famous dish of Papas Arrugadas (Canarian wrinkly potatoes) are served with Mojo Sauce - a spicy version in red and a smoother, guacamole-style green sauce.
Typical Canarian dishes are Puchero Canario (meat & vegetable stew), Cabrito (baby goat), Estofado (meat stew), Conejo (rabbit), Potage (lentil & potato soup) and Ropa Vieja (literally meaning "old clothes" and is traditionally made of left-overs but is now a delicious tapas or dish of chick peas and meat).
Seafood and shellfish are caught fresh daily by local fishermen and served on the menus of many of the local restaurants. Meat and chicken dishes are also very popular and readily available.
As well as serving local Canarian food, Caleta de Fuste's restaurants cater for a variety of international tastes including British, Chinese, European, Italian and Mexican food.
There is a good selection of shopping available in the local Atlantico and El Castillo shopping centres. As well as supermarkets, designer clothing, jewellery, electronic goods and local gift outlets are plentiful.
