Despite the fact that house prices in Spain and the Canary Islands have dropped considerably since the onset of the crisis in 2008 there is still decent demand for genuine luxury homes at the top end of the market.
So this month we take a closer look at what your pools win could buy you on the island, taking a sneaky peek behind some of the most expensive front doors on Lanzarote.
Live The High Life in Risco Prieto
If Lanzarote were a Monopoly board then Risco Prieto would be its Mayfair. This magnificent millionaire’s row is located high on the cliff-top above the harbour area in the Old Town of Puerto del Carmen. So as you’d expect the area boasts genuinely amazing views down to the shimmering Atlantic and across to the neighbouring island of Fuerteventura.
Indeed this post code is so sought after that properties rarely even come onto the market here. One that has though is this breath-taking luxury villa which occupies a highly prestigious frontline position, so making the most of those views.
It boasts six bedrooms and five bathrooms as well as a totally independent guest apartment, which means you could claw back some of the purchase cost by renting out to tourists! Along with great garden areas and a big swimming pool.
Best of all though you don’t even have to brave the walk down to the pool from the house as there’s also a private lift.
The cost of all of this opulence? A mere snip at just €2,999,750, or 2,361,740 in sterling at current exchange rates. Just click here to view more pictures and information
