Unusual accommodation in Lanzarote, Canary Islands
Description of Unusual accommodation in Lanzarote, Canary Islands
Enjoy a stay in the lap of luxury, with eco credentials firmly in place, at this unusual Lanzarote accommodation set close to the traditional Canarian fishing village of Arrieta.
Set within a relaxed and attractive finca, the old water tower has been converted into a stylish modern apartment, with marble floors and uninterrupted views of mountain and sea. Enjoy coffee on the balcony, before indulging in some of the many activities available close to the eco resort: surfing, kayaking, golf, yoga, horse riding and cycling, to name just a handful. Or just catch some of that glorious Lanzarote sun on Arrieta beach, a short walk from your accommodation.
With a kingsize bed, and en suite shower room, this light and airy apartment sleeps two very comfortably, but a child’s cot or bed can easily be added. If you are travelling as a couple however, perhaps upgrade to a VIP package that includes airport transfers and a bottle of Moet on arrival.
This eco retreat is as peaceful as it is beautiful, with mature gardens, and a shared solar-heated pool. All energy is supplied by renewable sources, and all the eggs at breakfast are supplied by the resort’s own free range hens. Whip up an omelette at the kitchen, and other meals can easily be found at the charming fishing village nearby, which has a good range of shops and restaurants.
Everything you need for a romantic, relaxed getaway on Lanzarote is right here, and a million miles from some concrete mega resort.
