Description of Lanzarote villa holiday, Fishermans Cottage, Canary Islands

For a romantic retreat on sunsplashed Lanzarote, look no further than this fisherman’s cottage near the village of Arrieta. The self-catering accommodation is overflowing with charm, from its typical Canarian balcony to its wooden floors throughout, a courtyard ideal for al fresco meals to the stunning sea views. If you’re planning your honeymoon, this property should have everything you need for an unforgettable stay with VIP airport transfers included and the option to upgrade to the VIP package, with a bottle of fizz and chocolates on arrival!

The comfortable accommodation includes a fully fitted kitchen, dining suite and master bedroom, which shares breathtaking seaside panoramas with the living room. You can watch the local fishermen putting their boats into the water, a nautical theme that is carried over into the cottage’s quaint decor.

While it might be tempting to spend your holiday just enjoying the pleasant accommodation, there is of course plenty to do in the surrounding area. A sandy beach, and the fishing village of Arrieta, are both just a few minutes’ walk away. In the village you’ll find a handful of good restaurants and a convenient supermarket.

You can also indulge in a range of fun activities nearby, with yoga sessions available, as well as surfing, windsurfing and other watersports.

This accommodation may be just the ticket for couples, but it’s also fab for families wanting to spend some quality time together. The peaceful location, excellent standard of amenities and baby-friendly services mean your Lanzarote holiday will have a dash of magic to it.

Environment

Each cottage has its own green credentials including low volt lighting, A+ class fridge/freezer, linen is changed once a week in order to save water, half flush toilets and is within walking/cycling distance to amenities. The cottage is "off the national grid" and gives guests the opportunity to experience first hand, living with solar panels using the latest renewable energy systems which work very efficiently.

We promote waste reduction by encouraging recycling and there are recycling bins locally in the village. We educate staff, guests and local schools about our environmental practices and on the solar energy system used. In our office we have low energy lighting and reuse paper.

Community

We have used local stone and tradesmen in the restoration of the cottage. We promote rural tourism to our guests and encourage them to eat out locally and use local amenities such as shops, sports facilities, restaurants and farmers markets. We offer excursions for locals to visit the cottage and see the effectiveness of the solar power system.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


A hike across the amazing Timanfaya National Park led by Jose of Blackstone Treks.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Just relax and enjoy it! The accommodation is a good location, spacious, spotlessly clean and well equipped.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Our holiday certainly benefited local restaurants and shops and the trek was led by a guide who was passionate about conservation and the preservation of the stunning landscape, flora and fauna. We did not hire a car and were able to walk or take local buses to the place we wanted to see, so our environmental impact was pretty low.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Excellent.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


The best part was staying in the tiny fishing village of Punta Mujeres and interact with the locals simply by having a cortado or getting a beer with the others.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


This is the best slow travel I have experienced. Highly recommended, if you want to walk, trek, read, write, have great food and surrounded by simple, kind
people. An unforgettable holiday where the pace was slow and the locals very kind including the mini market at Punta Mujeres, the hair dresser and folks
at Bar Palenka. Make the effort to hang out with the locals, apart from walking along the coast all the way to Jameous Del Aqua and La Cueva de Les Verdes. One can easily do without a car. The buses are reliable.

If you enjoy quiet, this is the place for unhurried reflection and watching birds, sun rises and sun sets. The coast was three mins from our villa.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


I think it certainly helped the local people, considering there were no hotel or supermarket chains. It helped the environment, considering we did not have a
car and were limited to walking or taking the local bus. Our visits to some tourist spots contributed to conservation, I hope.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Excellent. No complaints. But the service at our accommodation could be even better. It was not always easy to get information especially about transport.
But other than that, the locals were friendly and it could have been better.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


Arriving at Fisherman’s Cottage and seeing the wonderful location.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


It's not a holiday destination for clubbers. If you want a few days relaxation by the sea come to fisherman’s cottage.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


We shopped in the local supermarket and ate out locally. The cottage was totally solar powered with 'green' loos. So yes to both.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


10 out of 10. It was so much better than I expected. Jill and Maria were both lovely and friendly. The cottage was beautiful, the location was perfect. I will definitely be telling everyone about it, although was tempted to keep it as my secret! I will be revisiting. I only went for 2 nights but it was great. So good to get away from London and the rain for a weekend of sun, food and local wine.
