 In Blog

Well actually stories from the September mailer that goes out to our news subscribers! If you want to be the very first to receive our news, info and special offers then please scroll down to the footer and subscribe in the box. THANK YOU.

 

 

It is a blissful time here, warm sunny days, beautiful night skies, the trade winds drop to a comforting breeze, the beaches are quieter and the ocean waters rest at their warmest annual temperatures. 😎

Of course it hasn’t gone totally unnoticed that these are tempestuous times throughout much of the world. 😢

That said we are on a small island, just off West Africa, yes part of Europe, but in reality, far removed. Most people in our region live very traditionally, they focus on local life, direct their energies to where they can influence change when change is needed. Most here live in relative harmony with the environment and value its precious resources. Those that make a living off the land and ocean here, use methods that have hardly changed over the centuries. Perhaps much of the world could learn from this way of life. 😇 😊

Likewise the visitors who come to our region, they tend to be the tourists who are looking for a more meaningful life-enhancing escape, they want to make emotional connections with their destination, to immerse themselves in local culture and leave worldly troubles behind.

If that also sounds like you, then why not book a very unique holiday, offering wonderful experiences, here with us in the coming weeks?

Flights prices are lower now and we can offer you some stunning accommodations in our Eco Village, Finca de Arrieta, or other holiday villas, cottages and apartments owned by us. All managed by a great team here, whose sole mission is to give you the perfect escape!!!

Below, is our latest, news, stories and offers, please take a moment to see if anything inspires you. We are waiting to hear from you, so let’s discuss your perfect holiday. Our contact info can be found HERE.

THE DIFFERENCE AT LANZAROTE RETREATS

A huge number of villas and holiday accommodation in Lanzarote are owned by private owners who invested in a holiday accommodation for themselves, then rent it out to help cover the costs. There is nothing wrong with this, we have many friends on this island who do the same, as long as they abide by local laws, they are contributing to the economy of the island.

The difference is that Lanzarote Retreats is a family business, with 12 years trading history, we own Finca de Arrieta, our eco village and numerous villas, cottages and apartments. You can visit our HQ whilst you are on the island and meet us. We employ a full-time team of professionals… office staff, housekeeping, building & maintenance, on and on. You will not have to find your accommodation by yourself and then hope the door key is where the owner left it! Our operating model means, that when the full time team here are not busy assisting you, they are actively working on improvements, everything from ongoing eco-projects and renovations to launching new guest services, the work never stops. This is how we maintain an unrivalled level of service to both you and our environment!

Besma is a London based ethical fashion and lifestyle blogger documenting modern conscious choices. We loved this blog and Besma’s approach to life which mirrored our ethos at Lanzarote Retreats. So, when Besma chose to stay at Finca de Arrieta we didn’t hesitate to welcome a great new guest!

“My sister and I had a truly wonderful, relaxed trip to Lanzarote, and if we were to return, we’d be sure to stay with Lanzarote Retreats again. They had everything perfectly balanced; eco living that’s not invasive, luxurious experiences that didn’t cost the earth… Overall, it made for a beautiful stay.”

ARRECIFE EN VIVO: 21st September – 11th October 2019

If you love listening to live music under the stars then please join us for En Vivo, it’s the perfect excuse for a last-minute, short weekend break as it runs every Friday for 4 weeks from 21st September – 11th October  2019.

En Vivo is a wonderful concept, 18 bands, supported by DJ’s,  from the Canary Islands, Spain and other countries will perform four Fridays in a row for your enjoyment on 4 different stages.

The live performances take place on the Arrecife streets, squares, a sea lagoon, the bay and the beach, among other places in the city of Arrecife. It is held now as the weather is ideal, trade winds are calm and the temperature stays around 23° C and the sunsets are out of this world.

Performances are staggered so the crowd parades from one to the next full of joyous abandonment, not to mention a few glasses of local wine!

Would you like to join us for one of these weekends?

Get in touch by email HERE, tell us your dates and we will offer you a great incentive to take a weekend break for En Vivo!
