The Eco-Luxury Farmhouse is the largest building to be renovated at the Eco-Village of Finca De Arrieta.

It has been finished to a very high standard and can sleep 6 guests + cots / z-beds in its 3 bedrooms, 2 doubles and 1 Twin room.
The farmhouse comprises 250m2 of interior floor space and features a hardwood bespoke open plan kitchen with granite work surfaces. The large central island is an ideal workspace, offering views to the well-maintained gardens beyond. The kitchen has a large oven/grill, five-ring hob, fridge, freezer, toaster and plenty of cupboard space, making it ideal for discerning self-caterers who enjoy dining and entertaining in comfort.
The entrance door leads directly to the large lounge, which has a split-level hardwood floor and a day bed for total relaxation. The hallway leads through to the guest bedroom, which has a skylight, twin beds and wardrobe.
Continuing through the farmhouse you enter the kitchen and step down into the dining area, here the bespoke wood table offers seating for 6 guests. Antique double doors lead to the master bedroom suite, which has fantastic mountain views. This room features antique furniture such as the super king-size 4 poster double bed, built-in wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom with a walk-in shower, double sinks and separate WC.
The third bedroom has a marble floor, a super king-size 4 poster double bed and views of the gardens. A further bathroom with access from the lounge also features a walk-in shower, bath, double sinks and WC.
Outside, the farmhouse set in mature gardens offers a large ranch style covered terrace with a marble-floored dining area for 8 guests.

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.
Very easily located with a great kitchen area and outside private garden and living area
Fabulous place, completely off grid, immersed in nature.
I have been many times to Finca. Always great! love it there & feels like home
Great Eco Friendly Holiday Village
We were a large group with 7 adults and 1 toddler, and found there was something for everyone. (We rented 2 properties). The farmhouse had everything you could wish for, and the toddler loved the private pool, the playground and the animals. The rest of us enjoyed the exercise classes in the mornings. The honesty shop was very useful, and well stocked. The village was only a short walk from a beach and there were many restaurants nearby. Highly recommended, especially for families.
Fantastic staff, very family friendly, and perfectly situated for relaxing or exploring."
I've just returned from a week at the Finca de Arrieta with my family and cannot recommend it enough.
We stayed in the Farmhouse - which was just wonderful. Absolutely huge: three bedrooms (two with king-size beds and one twin room) and one of the kings was en-suite, lovely spacious living areas - separate lounge, dining and kitchen. And then a massive outside area - a dining area immediately outside the front then the private pool area which has a covered outside living room and a Balinese style seating hut. It's all wonderfully furnished and so comfortable.
Huge thanks and recognition must go to Karen, Renata and all the staff at Lanzarote Retreats. For their help before we booked and numerous pre-arrival questions (the live chat service is excellent), and their on-site assistance - eg with advice about where to visit on the Island. It was my Mum's birthday while we were staying there and me and my sister were in touch with Karen a lot (massive understatement!) before we arrived to arrange a number of surprises for her eg a special dinner being cooked for her, by Karen, and Karen couldn't have been more accommodating. The dinner itself was fantastic, so big thanks to Karen for all her help both before and during our trip.
Finca de Arrieta is very well located just minutes from the beach (both walking and by car) and Arrieta, where there is a local supermarket for stuff you can't get from the fabulous honesty shop on site. Arrieta is a very pretty little village.
Also on site are the wonderful donkeys and chickens, kids play area, communal pool and chill out area (where you can get WiFi - we did manage to get this in the kitchen and dining area of the Farmhouse), where you can meet other guests. We also really liked the eco ethos.
It is so lovely and relaxing here I can't put it into words. We all came back so chilled it was just superb, and of course, it was just what we wanted for my Mum's special birthday, so thanks again to everyone at Lanzarote Retreats for their help in creating a very special holiday. I will definitely be returning!
First winter holiday for us as a family. 2 seniors, 2 grown up daughters and a 4 year old. The moment we were picked up at the airport (as part of the service from Lanzarote Retreats) we felt relaxed and that our holiday had begun. We received a warm welcome by Karen who showed us around the Farmhouse. It was perfect. We all loved the concept of the Eco retreat and that was what it became for us - a retreat. Next day Renata was also extremely helpful giving us tips about Lanzarote, and was on hand and helpful all week. Tila and Michelle were perfect hosts. We loved everything about the resort. The honesty shop was wonderful and we made full use of it. The chill out area was a really nice and relaxing place to go. Yoga and stretch classes were attended. Our granddaughter loved going to collect eggs from the chickens and to feed them and the donkeys. She also spent a lot of time at the play area and made a couple of friends. We planted a cactus in one of the gardens as a tribute to a family member who had recently died. On the board by the office is a list of vacant properties which you can visit. This is such a good idea and we made full use of this facility. Each property is totally private with some outside space. The farmhouse is a lovely characterful spacious property, with three bedrooms and two bathrooms (one en-suite) inside the house, and a separate loo and shower in the outside room by the pool. The private pool is a fabulous bonus. Although the site was quite full, because of the layout and the privacy of each property we were never aware of noise. The holiday had been booked for my "significant" birthday and on the day we celebrated with lunch at a restaurant recommended by Karen and Renata (Casa de la Playa) down by the sea. It was a lovely meal and the staff were so nice and accommodating. As a surprise for me, my family had arranged for a cake to be made and supplied by Karen, and all the waiters came out singing "Happy birthday" in Spanish. A wonderful moment. That evening more surprises, my family had arranged for Karen to come in and cook us a 3 course roast lamb dinner. It was a fantastic surprise and wonderfully tasty. Huge thanks to Karen. A car included in the cost was an added bonus. We didn't venture far but enjoyed a trip toTeguise, a beautiful town. Lovely to walk around. And regularly used it to the supermarket in Arrieta a few minutes away. Prior to our visit I used the online chat facility to answer all my questions. All were dealt with very promptly and this is a great service. The few months leading up to our visit had been very difficult, in fact up two days before going away we weren’t certain if, due to health problems, we would be able to travel. Also an operation was planned for the day after our return. All these things were forgotten in the wonderful tranquil setting of the retreat and the kindness of all the staff. We all felt thoroughly refreshed. We will certainly do our utmost to return.
We have had an extremely stressful few months and desperately needed a break. Having come to Lanzarote Retreats almost 2 years earlier we thought about booking with them again. So glad we did as it was exactly what we needed. The farmhouse was gorgeous and very relaxing. We had some amazing food in some of the local restaurants (we ate way too much), had some fantastic customer service at the Finca and totally kicked back and relaxed, feeling completely looked after. We even met some other very lovely parents and kids who got on well with our daughter. I’d completely recommend a holiday with Lanzarote Retreats.
Fantastic place run by unbelievably kind people. Everywhere is spotlessly clean and well maintained. Tila and Michelle who run this resort will treat you like family and every member of staff will go out of their way to provide any help you need. On the day we left a huge storm grounded many planes. Tila dropped us at the airport with the promise of checking in with us to make sure our flight wasn’t cancelled. He checked in with us three times to make sure we were okay and offered to put us up for the night if we were stuck. A million times better than the service at many large resorts or holiday companies! If you’re looking to get away from the maddening crowds this is the place to go!
And besides the kids loved collecting the free eggs from the chickens every day!
We are very happy with our vacation at the eco luxury farmhouse. What a beautiful place. It was build by the owners, for themselves to live in. So you can imagine it is better equipped and more luxurious then you would expect from a standard vacation house. Welcoming by sally was great, we felt right at home from the beginning. Our children had a wonderful time: there's chickens, a donkey, pools and the playgrounds. We would definitely return.
We have just returned from a stay at the eco luxury farmhouse at finca de arrieta and we're delighted with the whole experience. The accommodation is first class and perfect for our party of three generations . The included car was a great bonus and we made use of it to variously go surfing , visit nearby villages and enjoy very good food, and visit the national park. Spending time on site was also good fun for our young grandson who loved the donkey, chickens,hens and well designed play area as well as the pool. The eco and off grid philosophy was well observed and we felt very well looked after. A great holiday thank you
We have just returned from the most wonderful holiday at the finca. Seven of us (aged ranged 13 months-80+ ) stayed at the farmhouse and it suited all of our very different needs. There are so many positives to say about the resort that it's difficult to know where to start. Particular highlights included the animals, the trampoline, the beautiful furniture, the honesty shop and the swimming pools which were designed in a way that made swimming with a 3&1 year old very accessible. My father and I much enjoyed a yoga session (rather mr bean me Bridget jones) and the local beaches nearby were stunning - Particularly the one near Orzola. The staff were all lovely particularly Sally who couldn't have been more helpful. Therefore if you are looking for an amazing holiday in a resort that is opposite to a package holiday resort then this is your place. We will return without doubt (probably in June!) All the best to you all.
We were 3 generations at the farmhouse. It was just splendid. Perfect for little ones, animals, toys, swimming, adventures. Plenty of space to get away from each other! Plenty privacy, appreciated the honest shop and the welcoming staff. Lots to do when we felt like it. And it was warm. Perfect hassle free holiday. Thank you
This was our first visit to the Eco Lanzarote Retreats Resort and we weren't sure what to expect. We were staying in the Farmhouse which had it's own pool and outside kitchen and sitting area. The accommodation was fantastic, with so many different/quirky seating areas all around, plus a table tennis table. We were very lucky with the weather and had sunshine everyday. We all enjoyed going to feed the donkeys and chickens every morning with all our leftovers and it was great that we were able to use the surfboards to go and have a try at surfing at Famara Beach. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful and we will definitely be coming back sooner rather than later :)
Stayed at Lanzarote Retreats Driftwood for a few days then Finca de Arrieta Eco Farmhouse for rest of week. It was wonderful! From the friendly welcome at the airport from Josh, the impeccable taste in furnishings, use of a car, plus the bonus of having the beach on the doorstep, we enjoyed every minute of our group holiday. Michelle and Tilla really do think of everything to make the holiday as perfect as possible!
Home after a brilliant week in lanzarote staying first at the newly acquired Driftwood which was amazing. Beautifully decorated and a spectacular glass fronted roof terrace in a perfect spot on the sea wall. Next to the Eco Farmhouse for second half of the week which was lovely - close to beach and restaurants and very laid back resort. Michelle, Tila and the team made us feel really welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Was in two minds whether to write a review of keep this gem of a find secret ! Already in the process of booking next year\'s......
I was lucky enough to muscle in, at the last minute, on a holiday my sister-in-law had already booked for my brother, their three young children and my parents. Adding me to the equation proved no problem to Sally and co at Finca, and in fact the extra cost was incredibly small. I felt included and valued from the moment I became part of the package. Upon arrival I was staggered at how big, comfortable and well-located the Eco Farmhouse was. It was clean, spacious, well-equipped, with a lovely pool area, and was absolutely perfect for all 8 of us. The little children loved feeding the donkeys and going to look for eggs from the hens, and there was a safe and well-appointed playground for them to play on. They had great fun planting their unique cactus plants in the ground nearby. Sally made this very interesting for them. The honesty shop was a real boon, for things like milk and bread and all those little extras you might have forgotten to pack. It even had a gluten-free range, which was perfect for me! Being able to sit nearby and access the internet was very useful, too. The beach was in easy walking distance and the activities available for guests were many and varied. I saw my little niece joining in with the adults for a yoga session! The service provided was exceptional - from the linen arrangements to the car we had, and the airport transfer was very helpful. I had a day to myself after my family flew back earlier than me, and Lamin drove me into Arrecife to show me where the bus stop was and where the best places to walk to were. I was very grateful. All in all, it was a wonderful holiday where all of us felt safe, secure and comfortable in a luxurious and - what a boon! - eco-friendly house. Thank you to everyone for taking such good care of us.
We enjoyed a fabulous stay in the eco farmhouse during August 2012. The accomodation is super luxurious, with extremely comfortable beds and we relaxed from the minute we arrived.
Great outdoor area with pool and chill out lounge with bbq, 5 minute walk to the blue flag beach at Arrieta and lots of nice restaurants within easy reach. Highly recommended by my family of five.
9 of us have just had a fabulous stay in the Eco Farmhouse in Oct 2012. The pool area is fantastic and the pool room was great for one family to share. Arrieta is lovely, the beach is fantastic with the most understated Tapas place that was great value and great food. If you have a car, the sandy little coves up by Orzola are so sweet and the surf at Famara beach is just amazing. It was great to be outside the tourist areas. Tila, Michelle and team were so pleasant, kind and nothing was too much trouble. The Paella evening was really good too. I would highly recommend the Finca as a great part of Lanzarote but also a great place to unwind and really get away from things and have lots of fun with your family.
