The Spanish Canary Islands, also known as the Canaries, is an archipelago just off of the coast of Morocco in the Atlantic. The islands are made up of Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, La Palma, La Gomera and El Hierro as well as a number of smaller islands.
Due to its location just off of the coast of Northern Africa, the Canaries are known for their all year round sunshine. The west coast can get a bit windy in the winter months, but the east coasts are always very pleasant – offering an excellent Canary Island villa holiday at any time of year…
With mountains, volcanoes, golden beaches, stunning cliffs and azure waters the Canaries are always a beautiful set of islands to visit. Perhaps you could even visit the dune of Maspalomas in Gran Canaria where you can take part in dune buggying and sledging.
The sun-kissed Canaries are just over 60 miles from Africa – but 1,700 kilometres from Spain’s mainland! You’re to find your dream Canary Island villa holiday across the Travelopo portfolio; from luxury apartments to stunning, seaside villas… which Canary Island is calling you?
As the largest of Spain’s Canary Islands, Tenerife has lots to offer for every type of holidaymaker, from its beautiful beaches to its volcanic landscapes.
Tenerife is largely dominated by Mount Teide, its dormant volcano and Spain’s tallest peak. The imposing Mount Teide rises over 3,700 metres above sea level from a large volcanic depression located at an altitude of 2,000 metres. A visit to Teide National Park is a must on your Tenerife villa holiday, where you can gaze over a breath-taking landscape of volcanoes, craters and rivers of petrified lava on guided walks.

The paradise island of Gran Canaria is a beautiful destination for your holiday. The municipality of Tejeda, the highest part of Gran Canaria, is a great area of the island to explore, in the province of Las Palmas. Tejeda, which is around 44 kilometres from the Gran Canaria’s capital of Las Palmas, is the perfect destination for hiking, mountain biking or climbing on your Gran Canaria villa holiday, with breathtaking landscapes on offer and century-old trails.
The cosmopolitan city of Las Palmas itself has lots to offer – from beautiful beaches (the island boasts around 60 kilometres of beaches along hundreds of kilometres of stunning coastlines) to vibrant carnivals, such as the infamous annual Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
So if you desire a sun-kissed island break, check out our plethora of apartments and villas across Gran Canaria…

The small island is a great place to relax and explore, as a World Biosphere Reserve with lava fields, volcanoes and cliff and coast scenery.
As well as being a Biosphere Reserve, the island has become the first fully self-sufficient island in the world out of renewable sources of energy. El Hierro is a scuba-diver’s paradise in particular, offering warm, crystal clear waters and fantastic marine life.
There’s plenty of fun to be had on La Gomera, one of the smallest of the Canary Islands. Offering a gorgeous climate all-year round, you can enjoy an average temperature of 24*C in summer and a reasonable 18*C in the winter months.
The island is home to Valle Gran Rey, a popular area of the island boasting breath-taking landscapes and some of the most beautiful beaches on the island. Walking for a spot of lunch to overlook the valley is popular amongst visitors to the area, while whale and dolphin watching is also on offer.
La Palma, off north-western Africa offers a gorgeous climate throughout the year (an average temperature of 24*C in summer and a reasonable 28*C in the winter). This beautiful, green island has also been declared a UNESCO biosphere reserve – the perfect escape for nature-lovers on a Canary Island villa holiday.
The capital of La Palma, Santa Cruz de La Palma, is home to the museum Museo Insular, on the Plaza de Francisco. Located on the eastern part of the island, the museum is housed in a former 16th century monastery, offering an extensive range of exhibits and art galleries.
