I'm glad to see increasing interest about Lanzarote, also if in my country (italy) few people knows it.The island is not promoted here.Maybe that's a good moment,now,to look for a home before the prices 'll get higher.But the Canarian Government must understand that the bigger problem (on the italian tourism market)is the travel to canarias: the fly tickets are very expensive with a "regular" fly company (Iberia...). There are, in italy, also low cost companies but, to take a good fly, you should leave from here, go to London Stanstead, Luton or Exeter (or Ireland too), than take a cheap fly to canarias (and waiting also a night sometimes..), saving also the 60% of a "regular" ticket!Also for this reason, italians prefer other locations (egypt for example).That's a pity, a good fly program to larger range of european countries, could help the wonderful island of Lanzarote to get more market interest! Do you know the main low cost companies landing in ACE airport (I know only Binter Canarias, Ryanair and Thomas Cook)? I'll be there soon, but I've paid 1100,00 !!!(2 and 1 child) and that was a "nice price!" from a friend agent! bye.
