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 unspoilt and there is a rustic charm to many of its historic houses and coastal alleyways. Eco Fishermans Cottage, set on the sea front village slipway was originally owned by local fishermen who lived there over 200 years. Each morning, you can still see local fishermen unload their catch and an early get up is rewarded by the most spectacular sun rise.
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. There is also a smaller man-made golden beach which is just in front of the Eco Fisherman’s cottage. This is ideal for swimming or snorkelling.
La Garita Beach: Ideal for…….
surfing, body boarding, sunbathing, swimming, wave jumping, there are sheltered areas, child friendly and perfect for sand castles!
Pure disconnection and enjoyment. Amazing place.
Nous avons adoré notre séjour dans notre yourte. Nous avons particulièrement apprécié la cuisine extérieure. Ce logement atypique nous permet de vivre dehors (lit et cuisine en plein air) ce qui est très agréable en vacances. Nous avons également été très bien accueillis, et trouvé nos hôtes arrangeants (dépôts de bagages quelques heures avant l'heure possible d'entrée dans les lieux, et bien d'autres choses qui ont facilité notre voyage.) Nous entendions parfois la route la nuit, mais cela ne nous empêchera de renouveler cette expérience qui reste très positive.
What a special spot. We had a quiet week in early March and spent nearly all our time just at the eco village and on the very nearby beach (where there is a great cafe). We loved how attached our son got to the animals at the eco village who provided endless entertainment and interest for him. Especially when he got to collect an egg from the chickens! The yurts are great, luxurious and comfortable but you still get the feeling of outdoor living. Kitchens and bathrooms very modern and clean. We loved the honesty drinks fridges and honesty shop, just perfect. Thank you.
Una experiencia totalmente diferente, la pena que solo estuvimos dos días pero sin duda repetiremos, aún habiendo tenido un tiempo regular con lluvia intermitente y nubes es un lugar para disfrutar, relajarse y evadirse, con una ubicación perfecta, cerca de playa, bares y el pueblo y con un entorno que además de bonito es acogedor y con gusto, con todo lo que se pueda necesitar sin salir de la zona. Hay que conocerla y disfrutarla. Un placer
A totally different experience, the pity that we were only there for two days but we will certainly repeat, even having regular weather with intermittent rain and clouds is a place to enjoy, relax and escape, with a perfect location, close to beach, bars and the town and with an environment that besides being nice is also cozy and tasteful, with everything you may need without leaving the area. You have to know and enjoy it. A pleasure
My family and I have just returned from a fab, relaxing week in Eco Palm Yurt. We loved it and didn't want to leave!
The sea view from the kitchen area (see photo) and the yurt is beautiful. The yurt was fantastic- spacious and very well equipped. Despite being worried that we would be cold at night as its winter this was not the case. It was lovely and cosy in the yurt at night.
The Finca have thought of everything. There were bodyboards, buckets and spades, pushchairs available to borrow free of charge when going to the beach.
My children are aged 8 and 10 and they loved the pool and all the pool toys that were next to the pool. My husband and I loved lounging on the daybed watching them 😂😂 they also loved the trampoline and the play park.
Highly recommend the paella night - amazing paella and lovely to chat with other guests.
- fantastic yurts. Something completely different!
- close to the beach (5mins walk)
- close to about 8 lovely restaurants in Arrietta (10 mins walk away)
- lovely unspoilt area close to lots of tourist attractions.
- the staff at the Finca are so helpful and go out of their way for you
- you have to leave at the end of your holiday! There is always next time though!
Lanzarote retreats is a very uncommon little village, with such many great eco ideas.Compared to Italian campings ( I think it's the most similar structure we can compare) it's extremely quiet and there is no animation at all (which of course can be a strength point or not, it depends on what you are looking for). I was a little confused on the day of our arrival because reception was closed but nobody told me that..even if we had several e-mails from the staff in previous days. Anyway we enjoyed very much our stay.
I've just returned with my family from Finca de Arrieta, part of Lanzarote retreats. It was our fifth trip to the yurts, which is testament to how much we all love it. My boys are now in their teens and were toddlers when we first holiday-ed here. Beautiful, serene eco environment. Comfortable yurts, with outdoor kitchen and lounging areas and a private deck and garden in each. You can while away the hours in a hammock, or use the pretty communal pool, play outdoor chess, feed the donkey. An honesty shop and chickens who lay your breakfast eggs every day! There is something for everybody and for all ages. With the surf beach and a great restaurant a 5 minute walk away, the retreat really hits the sweet spot! There's also phenomenal landscape to explore and all the Cesar Manrique art and architecture around the island. And wonderful, long sunny days. Already talking to the family about when we should go back!
We love Lanzarote Retreats- a great place in a beautiful setting. This was our fourth visit and we will definitely return. Particularly good for families with young children, but we also went there pre-children and loved it!
Gorgeous off-the-beaten track eco self-catering complex - kids loved it and there was the right amount of solitude available (if needed) and social interaction (via Paella nights, yoga sessions or chatting around the pool to the various other guests).
What an unexpected delight this holiday has been. The island is magnificent and Finca de Arrieta a true treasure trove. Renata, you have gone out of your way to make our stay so special – Thank you.
We came feeling tired, haggard and not ourselves, we leave a mighty family of four ready to face the world.
All our love and thanks.
Only wish we could have stayed longer!
Great set up, the yurt has plenty of it's own outside space, plus the shared facilities. and it's right next to the beach. Only down side is the pool's a bit chilly in February - the sea was warmer!
Had the most wonderful experience staying in the Eco Palm Yurt. Everything about the stay is spectacular, everything is very well organised by the attentive staff who are willing to organise and suggest the best suitable tours for us. We were very well taken care of during the whole trip, they made everything such as travelling to and from the airport as well as booking of tours very easy for us. Also, the people we met during our stay were really nice and friendly. I am definitely going back to the Finca.
We stayed in Eco Palm Yurt and it was perfect. Really private and tastefully done. This is not a place for those that want manufactured fun and that is its gift. It gives space just to be a family or with us a couple. You really do need a car though and Debbie was fantastic at giving ideas about where to explore. She also showed us round the rest of the dwellings on site and every one of them was beautiful. This is a place to slow down, read books, play cards, enjoy the lovely Lanzarote wine and relax. We can't wait to get back.
