Description of Lanzarote villa accommodation, Canary Islands

A luxury Lanzarote villa that we have lovingly restored as part of our eco finca on the north coast of Lanzarote, beside the small town of Arrieta. Sleeping six people in good sized rooms, this traditional stone building has been designed with spacious rooms, wooden floors and luxury furnishings, influenced by our love of Moroccan and Indonesian design. It has an airy, spacious feel to it, which keeps you cool in summer, but also warm during winter months. Although average annual temperatures are between 18ºC and 24ºC so it never gets too cold on Lanzarote.

With bespoke fittings throughout, including a granite fitted kitchen with all amenities, including a washing machine, there are double doors that open out from the spacious living room to a private patio, where a day bed is the perfect place to lie back and watch the stars in our famously clear night skies, the sound of the lapping waves from Arrieta beach, just a few minutes’ walk away.
There are two large bedrooms, one double with wonderful views of the mountains and an ensuite bathroom with both bath and shower, the other with twin beds. There is an additional shower room in the villa which, like all the rooms, has been beautifully designed with Italian and Moroccan furnishings. There is also a double sofa bed in the living room for additional guests.

This villa package includes the use of a Toyota Hybrid car, and we provide airport transfers where we meet you personally with a bottle of bubbly in hand, so you can sit back and enjoy your arrival on our beloved island in style!

When you have settled in, you will discover that Arrieta village and beach are just five minutes’ walk from the finca, which is very much a local beach at the heart of its village, rather than a big tourist beach covered in beach chairs. We have plenty of surfboards at the finca that you can use during your stay, and we can also organise local activities for you with our expert activity providers that we have worked closely with over the years. These include road cycling and mountain biking, surfing and windsurfing, yoga, paragliding, hiking and tennis. You name it, and if we can help organise it, we will!
