There are many apartments to rent in El Cotillo for self catering holidays. So to make your choice easier, and more informed, I have used my local knowledge to select some of the best El Cotillo holiday apartments available.
Many of these El Cotillo apartments to rent have sea views, some are actually right on the lagoon beach. Others are located in quiet parts of El Cotillo village but nowhere is more than a minute or two walk to the sea anyway. Some apartments are in small complexes while others are independently owned and rented by their owners.
Winter is high season here and many come for extended stays of 3 weeks or much more. Why would anyone not want to get away from the awful weather in northern Europe and spend a month or so in the lovely winter climate of Fuerteventura? That’s what we did for 4 winters before moving here full time.
There are only three hotels and no villas, that I am aware of, available for holiday rentals in El Cotillo itself. But there are some villas in El Roque (which is just a 10 minute walk away from El Cotillo). These have swimming pools and some have distant views of the sea too. If you are interested in these then visit the villas to rent in El Roque section.
