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.
H. N. and L. say thank you !! A really great vacation! No hotel, no apartment, but exceptional accommodation that offered all possibilities and freedom. The facility has a special charm and is designed for sustainability. No mass tourism! Wonderful starry sky .... Cook yourself, go out to eat or use the finca's services - everything is possible. The prices, even in the small finca shop, are totally okay. Mediation of friendly surf instructors and great tips for excursions. All employees are friendly. You have to cross the road to get to the beach. That seems unusual at first, but is typical of the country and unproblematic. The beach is popular with locals of all ages. I could write a lot more. The north is worth seeing and it is basically not far to the south.
Un lugar unico, una experiencia nueva si os gusta tener algunos lujos en una zona rupestre

Localisation idéale pour un séjour à Lanzarote. Belle vue sur la mer et sur les volcans. L'eco resort est très joliment décoré et aménagé. Nous avons apprécié les services: petite boutique très pratique, soirée paëlla, joli piscine, trampoline pour les enfants, location de voiture incluse… Seuls les bruits des voitures à cause de la route proche nous ont dérangés le matin.
Ideal location for a stay in Lanzarote. Beautiful view of the sea and volcanoes. The eco resort is very nicely decorated and furnished. We appreciated the services: a very practical little shop, a paella evening, a nice swimming pool, a trampoline for the children, car rental included... Only the noise of the cars because of the nearby road disturbed us in the morning
We stayed in the eco beach yurt pod (2 yurts, one pod ) for Easter, perfect spaces with our 3 teens and we had a fantastic time. Staff absolutely great, nice atmosphere ! One evening we booked for a paella in the common meeting area. Walking distance to a small beach ( only the road to cross) and a nice little village. Good fish at a simple restaurant by the beach. Hybrid car to go around. Highly recommended!
Awesome would totally sum up the location and 5 star quality of this amazing resort which is all run by solar and wind power. The owners Tila & Michelle are amazing hosts who have a assembled a great team who provide a 5 star service ,from airport transfers to on site honesty shops. Thank you for an amazing holiday ,and I'm looking forward to returning very soon.
Loved staying in the Yurt which was spacious, comfortable and stylish. Could not recommend it higher. Great quality accommodation walking distance from the beach with all the amenities you could reasonably expect. We very much enjoyed our stay and will be back.
We stayed at Finca De Arrieta for 5 nights in March 2015. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it wholeheartedly. We stayed in the Eco Beach Yurt, which is really set up for two couples/families staying together, but as we booked last minute it was all that was available. The yurt was large and comfortable and the lounge pod with the sea view was a hit with our toddler. We loved the outdoor kitchen and chill out areas. The on site play area was great for our two year old, and she was keen to feed Mollie the donkey every day! I would recommend hiring a car so that you can visit some local sights; we enjoyed the volcanoes at Timanfaya National Park and the Jardin de Cactus (but there is so much to see you won't be bored!). We hope to visit again in the future!
Just back from our 6th visit to Lanzarote & perviously we have stayed in in the south of the island in Villas (James Villas). Our stay at Finca De Arrieta has changed that. The North of the island is more 'chilled', 'Canarian" and much more in tune with what we value in holiday as a family. From the very outset, everything to ensure that our holiday was perfect had been thought about. It was such a luxury to be collected from the Airport by Lami & I now wish I had taken him up on his offer of Fizz on transfer! On our arrival it was "Paella Thursday" hosted by the lovely Joshua, we were all treated to the most delicious Paella & dare I say more Fizz. It was very appreciated after such a long journey. We were made to feel welcome & at home straight away. We stayed in the Eco Beach Yurt. It is perfectly situated with stunning views in all directions, even the shower cabana had a view of the ocean. Our girls (aged 11 & 7) had so much freedom, from collecting eggs at Cluckingham Palace, to jumping for hours on the trampoline & generally exploring the Finca unsupervised. The Finca has many unique details that sets it apart from other holiday resorts. It is totally off the grid (the cars they they provide are hybrids), encourages recycling & even has a Honesty Shop. We spent a week with very little wifi, no telly & outside enjoying the fantastic outdoor living space. There is a communal area where the wifi lives & a stack of toys & books but there is no pressure to get involved. You can be as sociable or as unsociable as you like. We were meant to do so much but fell into a relaxed routine of running in the morning (some fantastic trails for keen runners) when it was less hot, to walking to the beach in the afternoon to bodyboard, eat, drink & soak up the sun. There are two excellent places to eat at the beach (Arrieta) one a bar & the other a restaurant. The beach is so well set up with showers & foot taps. Also there is a very clean area where there are toilets & showers, so we did not really feel the need to go anywhere else! The beach is excellent for bodyboarding, surfing & swimming. There is a fairly busy road to cross but it is easily negotiated. We are all very sad to leave, certainly gets you thinking about your life & maybe there could be so much more to it. Sally & the team were really helpful, no request was too much & their hospitality second to none.
