The village of Arrieta has 400 inhabitants and is set in the northern municipality of Haria, the most traditional area of Lanzarote and ideal for the more independent traveller. This northern part of Lanzarote does not offer purpose-built resorts such as Costa Teguise, Puerto Del Carmen or Playa Blanca. Arrieta is a small traditional Canarian fishing village which has learnt to adapt to meet the demands of some low-key tourism. Among other things, the village offers wonderful sea front fish restaurants, a very good pizzeria take away and a supermarket. As with other villages in the north, Arrieta is peaceful, tranquil and is ideal if you are looking to be away from the neon lit bars and nightclubs found within the tourist resorts of Lanzarote.
Arrieta is one of the prettiest and most authentic fishing villages to still exist in Lanzarote today. It remains unspoiled and there is a rustic charm to many of its historic houses and coastal alleyways.
Arrieta boasts a beautiful beach called “Playa de La Garita” which has fine golden sand and is 810m long. This beach has a restaurant and beach bar and also WC/showers, parking and play park. The waters generally remain calm throughout the year. This beach is ideal for first-time surfing, body boarding, sunbathing, swimming, wave jumping, sand castle making, sunrise spotting, fishing and dining at the beach bar or restaurant.
This was our first visit here and we absolutely loved it! The Yurt was comfortable and the whole accommodation was lovely. You´ve thought of everything and its been great for our little girl. She´s loved the playground and the animals. Its felt very safe here for her and the location was great. We will definitely be back!
Dear all at Finca de Arrieta
We have had such a lovely stay here! It exceeded our expectations and we are sad to leave. Highlights were the donkey, chickens, trampoline, pool, planting cactus and all the lovely staff here.
We´ll be in touch soon about booking next year!
Thank you – Gracias
We had an absolutely lovely stay in the Eco Chico Yurt at the eco-village. The accommodation was clean and well maintained and they had thought of everything to make our stay comfortable and hassle free. We were travelling with a toddler and Lanzarote Retreats had ensured we had everything we would need including a cot, baby bath, highchair and plastic plates bowls tumblers knives forks and spoons.
The location was ideal with a short walk to the beach and beachfront restaurants and to the nearby town. The village is north of the country so away from the more tourist areas but this was ideal for us as it meant the beach was quieter.
our little girl loved feeding the donkeys, ducks and chickens and collecting fresh eggs every morning. And she really enjoyed the play park and all the toys that were provided for her to play with.
I will definitely be visiting again. It was ideal.
We stayed just one night in the Eco Chico Yurt at the end of our holiday. The eco village is gorgeous and the interior of the yurt is beautiful. The attention to detail was impressive, from the original presentation of the towels to the little personal touches of a welcome note, welcome pack of cava, tea, crisps ... The honesty shop is a great idea - it feels good to be trusted. We loved the shower room with it\'s own palm tree and the well equipped kitchen. Really it\'s impossible to fault this accommodation. The icing on the cake is, of course, the fact that the village is environmentally friendly, working hard to protect this beautiful island. Thank you so much for this experience. We\'ll be back.
We loved our Eco Chico Yurt - very cosy and we everything you need. More in fact as we are out for every meal so only used kettle! Plenty of hot water in a unique bathroom complete with a palm tree and sea view. Loved the honesty bar and shop. Great yoga lesson but it was the proximity of beautiful beach, fantastic fish resturant and a couple of great bars that made it really special. Could have done without the early morning cockerel but apart from that a perfect break and would definitely come back.
A brilliant place for a family holiday. The Yurt was great fun to stay in and our 2 yr old son had a splendid time roaming around and making friends with chickens, rabbits and the donkey. Fantastic to discover there is an escape from Arctic UK weather within 4 hours.
We had a really great holiday in the chico Yurt. I wish I had a garden so I could put up my own! Fresh eggs everyday, bbqing fresh fish bought from La Graciosa and beautifull stary skys... all contributed to a great stay. Thank you
One of the most relaxing and fun holidays we have ever had! And that goes for adults, children aged 13, 12 & 10 and a 18 month old baby! Quite a feat!
Eco and Chiquitita yurts were lovely, the chickens, eggs, donkey, the Finca overall and the beach nearby were all great. Add to that a beautiful island, friendly people (both the locals and the Finca team) and fab food, and you have a recipe for an ideal holiday.
We'll be back!
As we say in Bristol, the yurt was gurt lush! Really nice place with great facilities, lots of space, fun things to do near by and lovely owners/staff. Hope to be back before long!
We are just back from a 10-day holiday in the Eco Chico Yurt and it was all and more than I had expected.
The Finca is such a peaceful and friendly place - no TV, no radio, no computer, no ringing phone - pure bliss!!
We were made to feel so very welcome - it was just perfect even if the shower was not the most powerful but it was in a bathroom with a palm tree growing through the roof!
The highlight of the holiday was seeing the moon rise out of the sea - something I had never seen before and will never forget. We will definitely come back!
We have just returned from our 5th holiday in 3 years with Lanzarote Retreats (we like holidaying with them A LOT)! This was our first time in a yurt and we are now yurt converts!
Three things about eco chico yurt living at Lanzarote Retreats:
1. A Yurt is like a tardis! There is ample space for the double bed, a child's bed, a chest of drawers, bedside tables. And there is a light!
2. The kitchen area feels brand new and is well equipped. The perfect spot to grab lunch or an early evening drink before dinner.
3. The bathroom is wonderful, built around its very own palm tree. Exotic and funky, indeed!
And all this is set in your own area, with sun loungers (you can catch the sun all day long), a dining table for 4 and spectacular views! You can see the sun rise over the ocean and watch it disappear over the hills.
We travelled with our 5-year old son, who just loves the retreat.
And we love it to. It is the perfect place for a relaxing, luxurious (in a relaxed way), holiday to re-charge the batteries. We will be back!
We had a great time in the chico Yurt. Although we were the only couple with no kids we enjoyed the ambience. Everybody was so friendly and relaxed....just the right place to rest. The longer we stayed the more we loved the place and surroundings!
What a perfect peaceful week we had in our yurt. New to the 'glamping' scene we didn't know what to expect but we absolutely loved it.
Our favourite things - lying in bed and seeing the stars from our yurt, collecting eggs and scrambling them in the morning, our day trip to La Graciosa, the paella evening, meeting the other lovely people staying there, driving over to Teguise for amazing tapas - our list is endless.
What a super holiday, go - you are in for a treat.
Really enjoyed our time in the Eco Chico Yurt, really cosy, lovely kitchen and cool bathroom. Only downside is that it is not very private.
Defintely a Yurt convert. Book it now! Fantastic four days, very comfortable and relaxing. Amazing to be able to sleep under the stars. You have literally thought of everything, including bathrobes, which was usful as this yurt is quite visible to others. Great expereince, will return soon I hope.
Excellent stay in the eco chico yurt, loved everything about it and the rest of the Finca. Very comfortable and thoughtfully kitted out, looks exactly as it does on web site. Company in the shared area if you want it and peace and quiet in your own area if you don't. Honesty shop and fresh eggs daily a bonus.Tila, Michelle, Sally and rest of team lovely people so helpful and pleasant to talk to, always willing to talk to you and share information. Lovely beach and restaraunts near by, ideal spot to explore this part of island (need to hire car for this) The most peaceful and relaxing holiday we have had for long time.Will definately go back again.sandra and mark coxon september 2012
