Description of Lanzarote villa accommodation, Canary Islands

This luxurious Lanzarote villa, set within an eco finca on the island’s picturesque north coast, has been carefully restored. It can accommodate up to six in spacious rooms, with interiors designed with wooden floors and stylish furnishings inspired by Moroccan and Indonesian design. The villa has an airy feel, that will keep you nice and cool even during the hottest weeks.

The coastal village of Arrieta, a charming place with plenty of good local restaurants and shops, is just a five-minute walk away, as is the gorgeous beach, a local favourite that doesn’t get too busy.

Should you prefer to hang around your villa for a day, double doors from the lounge lead to a private patio with day bed (the ideal place for some star gazing), and you can actually hear the waves lapping against the sand.

There is a wealth of attractions and activities in the surrounding area available to you. Yoga, mountain biking, surfing (boards available at the finca), tennis and hiking are all popular with guests that favour an active holiday.

The eco finca relies on the sun and the wind for energy, and all accommodation refurbishments use locally sourced and reclaimed materials wherever possible. In addition, the villa package includes the use of a Toyota Hybrid car. And to ensure your holiday has the lowest carbon footprint possible, your hosts will be more than happy to advise on how you can eat, and shop, local.
