A BRITISH-OWNED apartment complex for mature couples and singles has opened in Lanzarote, offering an exciting and affordable alternative living arrangement for those aged 50-plus.
Sun Park Living is an exclusive resort aimed at those wishing to live on the Spanish island of Lanzarote, on either a short or long-term basis.
Neither merely a holiday resort, nor a retirement village, Sun Park Living's owners say it is instead a unique housing option, which offers residents the chance to be part of a community of like-minded, active, 50-plus individuals.
Guests can take advantage of the full range of facilities in the licensed English-speaking resort, including a restaurant and café serving freshly-prepared meals, a British deli, and fully-stocked mini market for those wishing to cook or eat at home, a bar, launderette and gift shop, as well as gardens, swimming pools, a tennis court, mini golf course, volley ball court, outdoor gym, art studio, and a range of stimulating courses from the on-site U3A (University of the Third Age) – the first to be launched in the Canary Islands.
Activities available on-site also include charity and volunteer work, which Sun Park Living's owners say gives guests an increased sense of purpose in their lives.
Patricia Dominguez, Sun Park Living spokeswoman, says: "In addition to the thrill of discovering what Lanzarote has to offer, and potentially unveiling a new life in the sun, there's also the pleasure of contributing towards building and sharing an authentic community living experience, enjoying true camaraderie amongst the newly found friends and neighbours."
The residential complex, which comprises 220 apartments, is unique in that under its "Make it yours" concept, residents are encouraged to make their mark and make their apartment their own.
So, whilst the apartments come fully furnished, residents are at liberty to redecorate and bring in their own furniture, to make themselves feel absolutely at home.
Set in the heart of the beautiful town of Playa Blanca, within walking distance of the picturesque old town and harbour, Sun Park Living encourages guests to make the most of all the benefits that come from living in the sun – a simple way of life in a unique, natural setting, filled with breath-taking scenery.
The resort is offering an introductory trial week for £279 (355 euros).
