Forget about commuting in the cold and the rain and the nine to five grind, as Lanzarote is light years away from the UK and Eire in terms of climate and working culture. Here temperatures remain in the 20s Celsius even in the depths of winter. Enabling residents to enjoy an outdoor lifestyle all year round. Which means no more central heating and being cooped up in doors for half of the year - but an altogether healthier lifestyle instead. And one that is also considerably cheaper than in the UK as you'll have no heating bills to pay either.

As a result of this great climate it's possible to get involved with a whole raft of healthy outdoor sports and activities whatever the time of the year, encompassing everything from cycling to surfing and everything else in between.


Year-round Rental Potential

European Union Status

Lanzarote is part of the EU as it is owned by Spain, despite the fact that it is hundreds of miles south of the European mainland and located off the coast of West Africa. As a result this is basically as far south as you can travel and still technically remain within the administrative boundaries of the European Union. This makes it easy for buyers from other European countries to both invest in property here and to relocate to the island, as no special visas or paperwork are required.
