Casa Lila, a modern-style holiday villa, is situated in a well-maintained private and gated complex of six holiday homes, which share a 3.5 x 5 meter solar-heated swimming pool. The villa is the perfect choice for a beach holiday – for couples, families with young children and for guests who wish to take a villa holiday alongside friends or family. Casa Lila can be reserved alongside the three bedroomed Casa Hibiscus, next door but one.
Casa Lila is situated in the tranquil, coastal fishing village of Punta Mujeres where guests can experience the laid-back Lanzarote lifestyle. Wander along the sea front to the low key tapas bar for lunch, enjoy traditional dishes in a variety of local restaurants or go beach combing along the coastline. Punta Mujeres is a charming village and is a 25 minute walk along the seafront promenade to Arrieta where you can find a variety of restaurants and the golden sand beach of La Garita. It is also just 15 minutes’ drive from the popular Costa Teguise resort, with all its amenities, golden sand beach and water-sports.
The villa, set just back from the sea, is laid out over three levels and is fitted with stair gates for the peace of mind of guests with very young children.
Ground floor: The entrance to the villa, at the rear of the south-facing private terrace, leads into a light and airy lounge overlooking the terrace and outdoor dining area. Cosy and homely, it is well-furnished and has a free WIFI, TV, Basic Satellite, DVD and music system. Adjoining the lounge is a fitted kitchen, complete with cooker, electric hob, dishwasher, microwave, fridge and toaster. This level also features a separate dining room with seating for six, built-in cupboards for extra storage and a bathroom with shower and WC.
Outside, the south-facing terrace, which has pleasant views to the swimming pool and decked relaxation area, sun loungers, BBQ and solid wood furniture for al fresco dining. There is also a garage.
First floor: The bright and spacious master bedroom has a double bed, dressing area and a south-facing balcony with swimming pool and sea views. There is a large en-suite with walk in shower, WC, washbasin and hairdryer. A further bedroom has twin beds and built-in wardrobes.

A sleepy little fishing village where you can totally immerse yourselves in a Canarian cultural experience far away from the main tourist areas and mostly undiscovered by tourist operators. This is a hidden gem where you encounter only the local fishermen and a few more adventurous travellers. However due to this island being so small it is still only a 40 minutes drive from the main airport and in easy reach of all Lanzarote’s other great experiences.
Here you are off the beaten track as many tourists unknowingly bypass this hidden secret as they make their way to bigger name attractions, that are still nearby, such as Jameos del Agua and the Cueva de los Verdes.
The Punta Mujeres coast line is lined with natural rock pools that fill at high tide and make the most wonderful locations for a relaxed dip with the family. The main natural pool is overlooked by ‘La Pascina’ the locals favourite tapas bar that serves local wines and freshly prepared traditional tapas dishes. There are also stunning small sandy coves to be explored.
There are a surprising number of little supermarkets dotted around the village, Las Rosas – the bakery and a good selection of restaurants such as Palenke which often offers live Spanish entertainment and has a wood fired grill that produces some good food,
Many locals have built their houses as close to the sea as possible, creating small alleyways and cul-de-sacs where homes look out over the sea. One or two houses almost blend in and disappear altogether, as they are constructed of volcanic stone. There are numerous pretty terraces and balconies, painted the traditional blue that once denoted the dwelling of local fishermen.
Further along the coastline the village reveals the remnants of an old gofio mill as well as a small muelle or harbour. A further echo of Punta Mujeres sea-faring past.
Punta Mujeres benefits from a good deal more protection than other parts of the coastline, thanks to the rocky hills behind it, these were formed by old lava flows from Monte Corona, the biggest and oldest volcano on the island. With your back to the sea, Monte Corona is very visible. As is all of the badland or ‘malpais’, the lava covered land surrounding the volcano. The tunnels which form the Jameos del Agua and the Cueva de los Verdes were all created by the eruptions which emanated from here.
Lovely quiet spot, close to the sea and bathing pools. Not far from various beaches. Much nicer than the more touristy south part of the island. Easy to find from the airport. Villa has pretty much everything you need & was clean and comfy with a thoughtful welcome pack. We have an 8 yr old so the pool was great. It's pretty cold though! Would have liked access to the courtyard at the back for drying clothes (key jammed in door) instead of putting airer at the front. We ordered an arrival lunch which was delicious. The owners/managers at the yurt site are extremely helpful. I'd recommend this place if you want to explore the island as it's a great base and if you prefer self catering.
1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?
The best part was staying in the tiny fishing village of Punta Mujeres and interact with the locals simply by having a cortado or getting a beer with the others.
2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?
This is the best slow travel I have experienced. Highyl recommended, if you want to walk, trek, read, write, have great food and surrounded by simple, kind people. An unforgettable holiday where the pace was slow and the locals very kind including the mini market at Punta Mujeres, the hair dresser and folks at Bar Palenka. Make the effort to hang out with the locals, apart from walking along the coast all the way to Jameous Del Aqua and La Cueva de Les Verdes. One can easily do without a car. The buses are reliable. If you enjoy quiet, this is the place for unhurried reflection and watching birds, sun rises and sun sets. The coast was three mins from our villa.
3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?
I think it certainly helped the local people, considering there were no hotel or supermarket chains. It helped the environment, considering we did not have a car and were limited to walking or taking the local bus. Our visits to some tourist spots contributed to conservation, I hope.
4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?
Excellent. No complaints. But the service from Lanzarote Retreats could be even better. It was not always easy to get information especially about transport. But other than that, the locals were friendly and it could have been better.
We stayed at Casa Lila, Punta Mujeres for a week at the end of November. Our holiday was just perfect, away from any of the busy tourist areas and every detail had been thought of in the Vila, I would highly recomend it. Michelle and Tila couldn't have made us feel more welcome and we are looking forward to our next visit in the Spring.
Stayed at Casa Lila in Punta Mujeres. The guys at Lanzarote Retreats were very helpful and we had a great time in Lanzarote. The villa was excellent and exactly as described. Punta Mujeres itself is pretty quiet but a great spot for exploring the rest of the Island.
Just back from staying at Casa Lila. Probably one of the best generally equipped Villa's I have ever stayed at. Punta Mujeres is fairly quiet but great location for relaxing or exploring the island. Michelle and her team are very helpful and great fun! We will definatley be using Lanzarote Retreats again but in another location to experience other locations. Casa Lila is a lovely villa and we do not see how anyone would be disappointed staying here however a car is essential as not much nightlife nearby, but we went for a relatively relaxing holiday so were not too bothered. We actually got engaged whilst there!!!!! Thanks for an enjoyable holiday Michelle....
This was our first time in Lanzarote and the first time we stayed in a fixed accommodation (Casa Lila). We had a lovely relaxing time (if only possible with 2 boys)! Casa Lila is really lovely and a great accomodation to stay in. The village is quiet (loved it) and a good starting point to explore the island.
We stayed at Casa Lila for a week in early June 2012. The property is beautifully furnished and equipped, and very spacious! The was a welcome pack of Pink Cava, Milk, PG Tips and Crisps awaiting our arrival which was a lovely touch. The pool and court yard area is great, and despite sharing with a few other villas it feels very private. There are plenty of great restaurants and beaches in walking distance (particularly in Arrieta), but we would wholly recommend hiring a car to explore the rest of this beautiful island.
We had a great stay at the Casa Lila. Punta Mujeres is a lovely village and it's a great location to visit most of the intersting sites of Lanzarote. We found all the pieces of information given in the booklet left at the villa very helpful. Next time we'll stay a little longer (we only stayed 3 days!)
Un séjour exceptionnel sur cette ile magnifique. Nous avons tous très apprécié notre séjour à Punta Mujeres, sur cette ile de Lanzarote, le bon vin, le soleil, les petits marchés, les petits restaurants locaux.
Nous avons également beaucoup aimé cette location, toute proche de la mer, superbement équipée. Egalement Les ballades le long du littoral, les baignades dans l'océan ou dans les piscines le long du front de mer. Location idéalement située.
Merci pour vos bons conseils (la ballade avec José dans les volcans, l'adresse du club de windsurf pour Eloïse et le fameux Charlie...) Merci pour la paella et votre accueil...
Nous reviendrons, c'est sur !
This was our first time to Lanzarote and we were pleasantly surprised by what the island has to offer. Casa Lila was spacious, modern, comfortable and well equipped including everything we needed for a toddler! The sandy beach at Arrieta was only 5 minutes away and we also used the pool. I would definitely recommend hiring a car, we went out exploring every day. In particular we liked the surfing beach, Famara, and we particularly liked the village of Teguise where we ate at La Cantina but there appeared to be lots of other lovely restaurants. The vineyards are well worth a visit to stock up on some fine wines and we enjoyed visiting a number of the attractions related to Cesar Manrique whose influence on the island has ensured it remains characteristic and picturesque. The weather was a lovely temperature, even though there were a few showers, we couldnt believe it when we arrived back in the UK to snow!
Just returned from a stay at Casa Lila. Had a lovely few days, I've stayed in a few apartments on Lanzarote over the years, and Casa Lila is definitely one of the best! Well equipped, felt safe being on my own, great for a stay of a few days or much longer. Loved hearing the sound of the sea every night.. hope to return soon..
