Location

Arrieta

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.

October 2015 | TripAdvisor/Holiday Lettings

Spent four fantastic nights in the chiquitita yurt which was fabulous, from the moment Josh picked us up at the airport with a chilled bottle of bubbly, the lovely meet and greet Sally, and Tila who made us very welcome. From the hybrid cars to the fresh eggs... Ten out of ten for the whole experience! We will be back!

Eco Chiquitita Yurt - Back in September, we stayed in eco chiquitita and had a wonderful ad memorable time there. I will recommend anybody , any time to experience the magic of Finca Arrieta. Many thanks again to Tila and Michelle ( but also to Lanzarote in general) for those great moments, for your constant attention and dedication to "le bien etre" of your guests

Eco Chiquitita Yurt - We had a brilliant time and will definitely book again.

This is our second time staying with Lanzerotte Retreats and without doubt its the mixture of style, luxury, green living and warm welcome from Michelle, Tila, the kids and the donkey who all make you feel like one of the family. We had the best of both worlds splitting our 14 night break in April between the Eco Chiquitita Yurts followed by Fishermans Cottage. It really was a great combination for my husband and I. Marc likes to hop on a wave and check out the surf and I like hopping onto one of the bikes and pottering around the beaches and little shops. The free fresh eggs from the on-site chickens is the perfect way to start the day and a massage at sunset from the lovely Joy is a must. Michelle can organise for her to come to you. We both had a massage in Fishermans Cottage looking over the sea at sunset...lovely. Thanks for another great holiday. We love how you guys approach your business and life style. Luxury, Green, Friendly and refreshing perfect. Julia Jasmin Gupta and Marc Rowedder xxxxx"

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 Chico 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!

Perfect family holiday - easy, relaxing, sunny, great food, warm hospitality, enough to see without great distances to travel, and a wonderful way to spend a week of chilly February. We'll be back...

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?
Staying in a yurt on a site with over 100 chickens, various cats, rabbits and even a donkey roaming around. Great for kids with donkey rides, missions to collect eggs every day, and to hang out with other kids on the communal trampoline, pirate boat and playground.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?
Really relaxed atmosphere in this family-run eco business, far away from the crowds of package tourists. Definitely get the organic food box, it had the most delicious produce.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?
Definitely. The site employed local people. It was 100% self-sustaining, with solar power, its own well and its own sewage system. We even had little IKEA solar powered lamps for our yurts at nights!

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?
Fabulously relaxing, beautiful island, relaxed yet very responsive hosts. A great experience

Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

***** I am reborn! Simply the best holiday I have ever been on

A very chilled and unique week. Loved the yurts..although next time we might go for a slightly bigger one. We were perfectly placed for exploring Northern Lanzarote and all it has to offer;uncrowded beaches. restaurants serving wonderful fish and stunning landscapes.
Very sociable but equally quiet .And it was great watch our two 'cool' teenagers going off to collect the eggs every morning and groom the donkey Molly, whilst we were still in bed with a cup of tea..
Thanks to Tila , Michelle and their family for making us feel so welcome and for entertaining the kids.

Cute and peaceful - we had a lovely few days in July - not too hot and very peaceful and quiet. Thank you.

Our two very excited boys (who had never flown or been anywhere warm enough to swim in the sea) found easy friendships involving lots of games in the pool and bouncing on the trampoline. Happy children - happy parents - lots of exploring, making use of the hire car. We are regular campers and the Yurts were fine, small but just greatfun. We spent most of the time by the pool or in the communal kitchen area next door eating chatting and sharing a bottle with yurt neighbours. It was really lovely, with fantastic hosts - many thanks to Sally, Michelle and Tila

Fab stay! The larger Yurt was very spacious and had plenty of room for two adults and a baby and the smaller Yurt is perfect for kids. Great idea - the fun of camping but so much more luxury. Kitchen and bathroom were especially lovely. Kids loved the donkey, the trampoline, cats and the pool. Great for family holidays. Highly recommended!

My Mum stayed in the smaller yurt whilst the kids and I occupied the larger one, which was a configuration that worked well for us. We had a thoroughly relaxing and
enjoyable stay, thank you. We found the staff friendly, helpful, and very responsive.
We wondered first of all whether the sound of the road, chickens or possibly even the donky might keep us awake, but that wasnt the case. Kitchen very well equipped, espcially the provision of chilled champagne. Very much appreciated, thank you. We hope to return.
