Why choose the island of Fuerteventura for your winter vacation rentals? There are many reasons why you might want to choose your winter sun accommodation on this lovely, friendly island, but most of the reasons are to do with the sun, the sand and the sea!
Fuerteventura is thought to be the oldest of the Canary Islands and its present landscape is a result of the weathering of the original landscape that was created by the volcanoes about 70 million years ago.

This makes it an ideal place to book winter sun villa rentals.
