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.
We loved our stay at the finca! My husband runs his own businesses and can be very hard to please but he gave our stay 10 stars! The yurts were lovely, it was great the kids had their own space. We loved cooking and eating outdoors. Paella night was very enjoyable and I enjoyed doing yoga too. The kids made friends at the swimming pool and play area. I loved feeding the chickens and having fresh eggs. I’d never visited the Canaries before- I’d also been a bit put off thinking they’d be very touristy. We were so pleasantly surprised by the North of Lanzarote though- we loved visiting the Cesar Manrique sites and it was great to be able to walk to a Sandy quiet beach. The beach restaurants were excellent. All in all a great holiday, I’d love to return in the future.
Ideal stay for rest and disconnection. Very close to the beach and some bars to have drinks or even eat. Also close to tourist attractions. The staff are very attentive and friendly at all times. Very clean and cozy.
This was our fourth time staying at the amazing yurts in Arrieta. It’s such a brilliant place to bring children, lots to do and feels very safe and relaxed. I can’t recommend it enough
Eco lodge de qualité, super adresse insolite
Quality eco lodge, great unusual address
Es unsitio muy bonito, alejado del ruido de la ciudad y con un entorno muy natural.Es mágico. Sin dudas volveremos
It\'s a very nice place, away from the noise of the city and with a very natural environment. It\'s magical. No doubt we\'ll come back.
Magnifique séjour dans une yurt magnifiquement décorée. Superbe concept avec des préoccupations environnementales fortes. Nous avons été très bien accueilli, il y a tout ce dont on a besoin à dispo, même possibilité d’avoir le pain le matin ! Petit village d’arrierra très calme avec plein de petits resto juste à côté.
Beautiful stay in a beautifully decorated yurt. Superb concept with strong environmental concerns. We were very well received, there is everything we need at our disposal, even the possibility of having bread in the morning! Small village in the back very quiet with lots of small restaurants nearby."
Es un lugar magico. Nos ha encantado a toda la familia. Hemos cogido muchas ideas eco para llevarlas a nuestro hogar y es un espacio maravilloso para los niños donde se sienten libres. Hemos visto a nuestro hijo disfrutar muchísimo. La habitación es maravillosa, muy practica y diferente a lo que estamos acostumbrados. La ubicación es inmejorable, zona tranquila pero con todo a mano. Los anfitriones y el ambiente social que se vive es muy familiar y cercano. Sin duda repetiríamos
It is a magical place. The whole family loved it. We have picked up many eco ideas to take home and it is a wonderful space for children where they feel free. We have seen our son enjoy himself very much. The room is wonderful, very practical and different from what we are used to. The location is unbeatable, quiet area but with everything at hand. The hosts and the social environment is very familiar and close. Without a doubt we would repeat.
A lovely family-friendly place that felt like home. Our kids especially enjoyed staying in a yurt!
We have just come back from our best family holiday yet at Finca de Arrieta! We stayed in their Eco Twin Yurt and were really impressed with the set-up and feel of the Finca. Super helpful staff and lovely vibe. Our kids adored the pool, which we feared would be too small, but was in fact perfect for kids, while we could relax and read our books in the sun. Lots to explore on the island too. Would definitely recommend it!
Staying in the yurts is an amazing experience. This was our third time in the last ten years and this time we brought our toddler, who absolutely loved it. Feeding the chickens, ducks and seeing the donkeys was so much fun her our little one. There is a fantastic play park on site, it’s all very calm and quiet and you can hear the sea at night. Totally recommend this place for children but it’s also a chilled place for adults too. We will definitely return for a fourth time next year!”
The whole resort is an example of an amazing idea and good implementation. We recommend the Eco Twin Yurt room. Everything was comfortable with high quality materials. We spent a great vacation here. Thank you for the hospitality!”
We came over in October for a half term family break with my two children, from the moment we stepped off the plane we were treated like part of the family.
Everybody was extremely welcoming and accommodating and we found lots of family friendly things to do a lot of which cost very little or completely free.
We absolutely loved the yurts and the eco aspect of the resort. The beaches were amazing and only a very short walk from our yurt.
It’s especially difficult to find a holiday to suit my whole family as I have adult children as well as younger children one of whom is autistic and very difficult to please, she loved Lanzarote retreats so much we are planning to come back again this year.
For us this holiday ticked all the boxes, tucked away far enough from the tourist parts to be quiet yet close enough for us to enjoy that when we chose to.
Highly recommend Lanzarote retreats as a great family getaway.
Eco Yurts - Nature - Tranquility
So the kids spend their time jumping the trampoline, feeding the donkeys, watching the clouds finding imaginary animals there as they traveled the sky .. and ending the evening making a puzzle. What an amazing place.
Our Yurt is big & beautiful decorated. There is an outdoor kitchen with everything you need .. A beautiful bathroom and small areas around the Yurt where you can relax during the day.
Fantastic Eco Retreats you have built Michelle and Tila
We look forward for the sun rising tomorrow to explore the beautiful nature around here and enjoy your fantastic place.
Stayed with our two kids for two weeks in a combination of villa (Casa Lila) and yurt (Twin Yurt) in August and had such a relaxing time. The villa was lovely, very well equipped and peaceful in a small fishing village but the yurt on the eco resort was amazing. Beautifully furnished, lots of outside space to chill out and beautiful communal facilities and swimming pool. Enables the children to experience a different experience to staying in a hotel without the parents having to suffer actual camping! Will definitely return.
A friend and I stayed in the Twin Yurt part of the complex (made up of mostly yurts and and a few buildings) and had a fantastic time. Our yurt area was private, as are all of the others, clean, had excellent facilities including an outdoor kitchen, a hammock and covered table and seating. It is a very relaxed, truly chilled place to stay with very friendly and helpful staff. The small local beach is lovely, there are very good local restaurants and cafes to eat at and a reliable local bus service to get about on if you don't have a car. The Lanzarote Retreat holiday compound is a very calming and very special place to stay. My friend and I loved it and loved the strange volcanic island too. I wouldn't hesitate to go back to either.
Eco Twin Yurt - We are just back from our 10 wonderful days staying in the twin yurt with our 2 girls, and are having to keep pinching ourselves to check that it was all real! We had such a fantastic holiday, all that we had hoped for with bells on!
Tila and Michelle, it was really lovely to meet you and hang out with your family and friends, thankyou for welcoming us and for all the holiday extras.
We loved the La Graciosa trip, the pool area, the beach bar, the chilled atmosphere, the beautiful yurts, the hairy sea adventure, the not overstated luxury of the finca, the beauty of the island and we really cant wait to do it all again next year (with all our friends)
What can I say and where do I start?! We had a magical time staying in our Twin Yurts and felt truly relaxed by the end of our holiday. Michelle and Tila make wonderful hosts and made us feel so welcome. Their creativity and attention to detail is evident within every aspect of the Eco Retreat. Our little boy Reuben loved having his own little yurt and slept like a dream. Reuben enjoyed making new friend's on the trampoline, feeding the chickens, collecting eggs for breakfast and rides on Molly the resident donkey. Our top holiday tips: - Eat calamari at the local bar/restaurant on Arieta beach...it's out of this world! - Gorgeous white sandy beaches on the right just before you drive into the town of Orzola. Ideal paddling for toddlers. - Visit the stunning Famara beach...beautiful, wild and good surf I believe! - Our special beach...Papa Gayo. A gorgeous cove at the southern end of the island which has a lovely bar/restaurant on the clifftop with friendly staff. - Day out in the volcanic national park. We took Reuben on a camel ride up a volcano which he loved but his mummy hated! - Visit the caves (although possibly not with a screaming toddler as there's no easy way out!) - Charming little market in pretty Haria on Saturday mornings - Go to Manrique's home and see some of his impressive art work. - Take in the views at the Mirador del Rio - stunning with stylish bar. Have a mojito and enjoy the views! - Eat out in Arrieta at Ta Hoya for lovely local cuisine I could go on and on about how much we've enjoyed this holiday but part of our enjoyment was discovering the beauty of Lanzarote for ourselves! The Finca is an ideal family holiday and we will most definitely be returning at some point in the future.
We stayed in the twin yurt in January 2010, us sleeping in the big yurt and our son Marin (3yrs.) in the little yurt. He just loved to have his little own \"pirate house\" and had so much fun. As well he found a dear friend at our yurt neighbours and they were exploring the area together. Of course the chicken had to suffer a bit under the boys way of \"getting in touch\"with them. I\'ve been now to Lanzarote the 6th time and I just love the island. Michelle and Tila are doing a great job and I definitely do support their concept of offering accommodation that is so different to the tourist standards, often seen on the Canary Islands. I hope they will keep it small and private to preserve the charme it\'s got right now. No doubt, it\'s the perfect holiday for families with kids. We will come back for sure !
Just got back from a brilliant 10 day spell at the Finca. We all loved it! We stayed in the Twin Yurts for the first week, and then the last few days in the Eco Chico Yurt (thanks Michelle for being so flexible when our flights were cancelled!). We were on holiday with our two girls (3.5 and 2 yrs). They loved the freedom of the Finca, and totally fell in love with Molly (they haven't stopped talking about her since we got back). The location of the Finca is perfect to explore the island, the local beach is superb for kids and the beach bar does delicious (kiddy friendly) tapas and delicious Mojitos. The atmosphere is so chilled, and we were able to have a very relaxing holiday and fun filled break... What Michelle and Tila have achieved with the Finca is a triumph!
1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?
We found Lanzarote very interesting, particularly the volcanic areas and various Cesar Manrique projects and did considerably more sight-seeing than anticipated on what was essentially a beach holiday. The beaches were varied and lovely, the Canarian food sensational and the yurt accommodation was charming, comfortable and as sociable or private as guests preferred it to be. The boat trip to La Graciosa and catamaran trip to Punta Papagayo were
particularly enjoyable experiences.
2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?
We pre-arranged car hire for four days of our fortnight and ended up extending that for a further week, as although Arrieta is in easy walking distance and has beach, supermarkets and restaurants, there was so much to do further afield. Car hire was extremely good value (as is everything in Lanzarote).
Other than that, just book your trip for as long as possible, safe in the knowledge that you can look forward to a brilliant holiday. The owners and staff couldn't have been more helpful which meant that we could relax from the moment we touched down to the moment we joined the queue for check in. (Thanks Michelle, Tila, Jill, Manuel and co. x)
3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?
Yes, Lanzarote Retreats use solar and wind power, rubbish is sorted for recycling and there are bikes available for guest's use. A number of local people are employed at the finca and the owners seem very supportive of other Lanzarote businesses.
4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?
Excellent - very relaxing, but also educational. The holiday was perfect for our family with three children between 9 and 14 yrs, but seemed equally suitable for those traveling as couples, or with toddlers and babies. We have never previously repeated a holiday, but this is one destination that we will seriously consider going back to.
Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?
**** Some wonderful memories, I would not hesitate to recommend it to a friend
Sadly have just returned from a fabulous holiday at the Finca. Almost had to be dragged kicking and screaming from our lovely yurts!!! We have all had the most relaxing and fantastic holiday ever. The yurts were pure luxury and we have been completely converted to outside living with the fully equipped kitchen and bathroom!!!
The pool area and chill out space are just phenomonal. The kids have had a fabulous time with Molly and the chickens and the cats and the play area and the trampoline and the pool and the fab beach on the doorstep and.. and... and.....!!!!
The best bit however was the warmest of welcomes from Tila and the team. We were made to feel that nothing was too much trouble and they all go the extra mile to make your holiday special. Being met from the airport with a bottle of bubbly was the perfect start!! It is hard to describe what a lovely relaxed atmosphere exists at the finca - so please try it for yourselves - you will not regret it!!!
Special thanks to Sally for looking after us so well!!!!
We had a really great twelve days in the Eco Twin Yurts and wished we were staying longer. It was the first holiday for a while where we turned up and felt like everything completely lived up to expectation (weather excepted...).
The Yurts were fantastic, really comfortable, just great. Everyone was really helpful and friendly, the communal bits work really well, chicken feeding and cat adopting went down well and the kids made friends which means relaxed parents. All in all a really successful holiday.
Special thanks to Tila and Sally for sorting Simon's birthday evening so wonderfully. Poppy and Jess are desperate to come back and see Monique and to have another speedboat ride!
I'm sure we'll be back.
Thanks again to everyone for such a great time.
The Finca was everything we had hoped for - and more! We arrived after a week at Casa Lila in Punta Mujeres, during which we had thoroughly explored this fascinating island. So, by the time we got to the Finca, we were ready to chill - and what a great place to do it! We swam, had a go at yoga, did bodyboarding and ate tapas down at the beach. But, we also just loved the Eco Twin Yurt - the perfect combination of luxury and fresh air, glamping at it's best! There was plenty of space for 2 adults and 2 teeneagers. Eating local Canarian fare al fresco was a real treat and we were usually joined at meals by at least one of the friendly Finca cats, which the girls loved.
Michelle, Tila and Sally were wonderfully relaxed and helpful hosts. Thank you all so much. You've created something really special at the Finca and we were delighted to have shared in it. We had a great time, have some fantastic memories (zodiac ride anyone?) and can't wait to return!
We got back last week form our holiday in the Eco Twin Yurt. We really did have the best time. I have two boys aged 9 and 5 and so we have been on a number of family holidays and I can definitely say this was the best so far. Despite the fact the weather wasn't brilliant we still had a fabulous time, which to me proves what a great holiday it was-it wasn't all about the sunshine.
We loved staying in our yurts and it was great that the boys had their own yurt so my husband and I could have our own space. Our boys did a lot of bouncing on the trampoline and really enjoyed feeding the chickens and Mollie the donkey.
The communal paella was delicious and we enjoyed meeting other guests as well as Michelle, Tila and Barry the saxophonist.
We have been on other holidays staying in huge campsites with kids clubs etc. It was so wonderful to be somewhere that felt peaceful but there was still enough to keep the boys entertained. My boys agreed that it was their most favourite holiday so far and seeing all the volcanoes really spurred on their imaginations.
We would recommend Finca de Arrieta to all our friends with children; no matter what their ages. It is the first time we've found a holiday spot that we'd all like to return to again, and hopefully we'll be able to in the not too distant future.
