Description of Yurt holiday accommodation in Lanzarote, Canary Islands
This yurt holiday in Lanzarote is located on a stunning family run finca with several other yurts on it. This holiday is in our twin luxury exo yurt, sleeping up to six guests, so ideal for a family or for four adults. Our lovingly designed eco yurts have their own sun terrace, as well as a private bathroom and outdoor kitchen, so there is plenty of privacy. We have used luxurious fittings throughout, from the marble flooring to the al fresco dining area. One yurt has a double bed and the other twin beds, they stay cool in summer and there is plenty of room, measuring 28m.
Our finca eco retreat aims for high environmentally friendly standards, the whole site covering 30,000 square metres, powered by solar and wind technology and offering low impact activities led by local expert guides. You also don’t need to have a car here, although we are happy to arrange rental of one if you like so that you can explore more of the island. If not, you can walk to the local fishing village, Arrieta for all your supplies as well as for restaurants and cafes. Arrieta beach, a favourite with local people, is just five minutes’ walk from our retreat.
Guests have use of all the retreat’s facilities including the 10m solar heated swimming pool, sunbeds, honesty shop as well as a large communal kitchen and lounge area. We are happy to organise any local activities for you, favourites including hiking with a local guide, surfing, road cycling and yoga.
We pride ourselves on being a family orientated finca, our own children having grown up here. Facilities for children include our gated pool area, resident donkey, hens, trampoline, table tennis and our family of farm cats and dogs. We are flexible for guests to bring pets with them. We also offer a babysitting service. For families of babies, please just ask, as we have all the equipment you will need.

Reviewed on 22 Aug 2012 by Angellique SunterThe most memorable part was watching my daughter see the stars for the first time! Zero light pollution! Also, I was so surprised by how much there was to do on the island. Nice to wake up each day and know it was going to be sunny and dry! Read full review
Reviewed on 11 Jul 2012 by Michelle ChristensenWe really enjoyed the boat trip to Isle Graciosa – the operator organised it. We went on a RIB speed boat to get there, then went snorkelling, walking through the town and a beautiful lunch. Read full review
Reviewed on 04 Sep 2011 by Kate MacnabAbsolutely lovely. It is probably a huge cliche but seeing the children laughing and playing by themselves and with new friends meant I was more relaxed - it all just ticked over perfectly and resulted in a great holiday. Read full review
