Luxury yurt accommodation in Lanzarote, Canary Islands
Description of Luxury yurt accommodation in Lanzarote, Canary Islands
This yurt accommodation in Lanzarote is part of a family run finca, dedicated to creating an exquisite eco village in the heart of northern Lanzarote. Just five minutes’ walk from Arrieta beach, a favourite with locals and another world from the resort beaches of the south, this yurt is perfectly located.
The ‘Finca de Arrieta’ is an exemplary eco retreat, with all power provided by wind and solar technology.
While relaxing at the yurt, we hope you enjoy our lovingly designed luxuries, including the Mongolian hard wood floor, luxury fabrics, walk in shower, outdoor kitchen and private, south facing patio. We also have a 10m solar heated pool for all guests to use, with superb views of our volcanic environs as well as a day bed for those midday siestas, or to cool down as the sun sets.
Lanzarote is perfect for either chilling out in our year round fine weather, or enjoying some of our many activities which we will help organise for you. These include surfing, windsurfing, road cycling, hiking or visits to the nearby island of Graciosa. There are plenty of restaurants, cafes and supermarkets in the fishing village of Arrieta, all just a quick walk away, along the beach.
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 also offer a babysitting service. For families of babies, please just ask, as we have all the equipment you will need, and many of our clients have come here with babies and come back every year as their children get older. We love to welcome all our guests back, but in particular, delight at seeing the children grow and enjoying the finca in new ways with each year.

Reviewed on 02 Sep 2017 by Sophie NelsonBeing able to walk to a great family beach (Arrieta) with spanish holidaymakers mainly. Our teenagers felt free to go swimming, body boarding & surfing. After a day of swimming or discovering the island it felt good to come back to the Eco Cabin with its pergola and small garden with fruit trees (fig, orange, mango, apple). Read full review

We have installed the most up to date energy systems on offer, and they work very efficiently.
