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 is a great place to stay with small children. My 2 year old loved it. There's a trampoline, pool, play park, sand football and volleyball court, lots of books, toys and animals! It's also a very short walk to the local beach. They have lots of things available to borrow, including buggies, beach toys, body boards and hiking backpack to bring toddlers on more challenging walks. Very relaxing for adults too. Activities like yoga, pilates and massage can be arranged on site. Paella night is a great idea, but maybe one other communal meal per week would be a good (;
A great place to disconnect from everything. Sustainability in its purest form
I and my daughter were on vacation in August and I wanted it to be a special stay, we found the perfect place !! Apart from being an eco-sustainable space, and very quiet (perfect in these times of viruses) it is an environment made to measure for children with animals, games, heated pool among other things. We stayed in a yurt, something different, which has contributed to making everything even more magical. From the attention of Jake (the front desk attendant) and the facilities made this vacation perfect. We will recommend it and above all we will return !!
Fantastic stay to disconnect in eco-sustainable facilities. The perfect vacation if you want to enjoy something different in Lanzarote in a natural environment. Very tailored to children and families who want to get out of mass tourism! Very nice staff! We will return and recommend !!
A different and special place. Ideal to rest and disconnect. Clean and cared for. We will certainly repeat
We loved this very original and cozy place and we will be back! Thank you.
My sister and I had an amazing time staying in Eco Chico yurt. The accommodation was as listed. The yurt was cosy and bed comfy, remember to keep that door shut at night so you don’t get any mosquitos joining you! We slept to the sound of the sea and awoke to the sound of the donkey! The kitchen and bathroom area were great too, with everything we needed to make breakfasts and light lunches during our stay. The rest of the Eco Village was fantastic we really felt part of a little community during our short stay. The beach is just a short walk away but do remember a torch for the way home across the main road! Renata was super helpful and suggested great local excursions and arranged massages for us they were a lovely way to finish the holiday, thanks Claudia. On the whole we had a fantastic time and we would definitely go back with a larger group of friends and maybe hire out one of the eco villas too. The area is just lovely and our top recommendations are James del Agua concert on Sat night arrive around 9:30pm to get a good seat. The Saturday market at Haria and the Cueva de los Verdes are also worth a visit. Thanks Michelle and team for a lovely stay, Sophie and Natalie
Peaceful, stylish and cosy. A perfect get away from the city.
Enjoyed every moment at the Finca, a quiet oasis away from mass tourism.
Very nice place, matching the pictures on their website. The swimming pool is tiny, but the sun deck is nice. The common area is very useful and welcoming, you will find books, toys for children, and surfboards you can borrow. The yurt is clean and atypical. The hosts are nice.
We enjoyed our stay in the eco Chico yurt - the eco village is lovely - I loved the rabbits, chickens and donkeys, it is a very homely and friendly place!. Great bathroom and kitchen facilities and chill out area by the pool! The location is ideal - right next to the gorgeous village of Arrieta which has a beautiful beach and some great restaurants to eat at! The only negative is that the air flow in the eco yurt made sleeping difficult and too warm - a small fan in there or some windows wouldve made such a difference!
We had a lovely week at the Finca. Hard to get a more young children friendly venue. The pool being shaded, sun lounger areas and communal space with honesty fridge (juice/cold lager etc) very much on hand is a real winner. The paella evening is fun, tasty and great value for money. Loved the zen yurt and the overall execution of the Eco ethos. Helpful and friendly team. Renata, Karen, Michelle & Tila. Thank you.
Staying in a yurt is a lovely experience that I\'d highly recommend. It\'s cosy at night, especially if you are staying in the early part of the year when the nights are cooler in Lanzarote. We have been to the island a few times and really enjoy walking in this dramatic and other-worldly landscape, and then coming back to the retreat where you can relax in a welcoming and friendly environment. There is privacy in your own space, and also opportunity to chat to others and enjoy activities in the communal spaces. The play area is especially wonderful if you have children, as are the animals. And all of this is off-grid - a demonstration of what is achievable if you plan it right.
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
