Our Eco Accommodation

Lanzarote Retreats offers a range of sixteen Eco, boutique style holiday homes unique to the island of Lanzarote. Environmentally friendly, they are off the grid meaning they are powered by sun and wind. Finca De Arrieta rural eco retreat consists of fifteen individual and luxury holiday accommodations from Mongolian yurts and quirky cottages to private villas. All properties are ideal for discerning travellers who want to holiday leaving little impact. Aside from Finca de Arrieta we offer Eco Fisherman's Cottage which is a seafront holiday home set in Arrieta, the nearby quaint fishing village.

Our Tiagua 81

Tiagua 81 is an elegant collection of self catering accommodation units, including four studio apartments, plus the two bedroom Rubicon Cottage. Located in the heart of Lanzarote, Tiagua village was once the island trading centre for local produce. The 200 year old Tiagua building was at this time used as a shop to sell fresh home grown fruit and vegetables, and the owners of the house also produced their own wine from the bodega building at the side of the main house, (now a stylish two bedroom cottage.)

Our Villas & Apartments

For those who want a private Lanzarote holiday villa or apartment in the heart of Costa Teguise, just steps away from the sea, or close the Puerto Calero we have a range of beachside locations with spectacular views. Close to local shops and restaurants, but far away enough from the hubbub of the bars, our range of luxury villas and penthouse apartments are the perfect place to relax and enjoy Lanzarote. Whether it's a family holiday with the children and grandparents or a special occasion with a group of friends, we have the perfect holiday accommodation tailored to your specific needs.

This mini paradise was created by Britons Tila and Michelle Braddock, who live here with their four children. Manrique would be proud, at the moment Finca de Arrieta is the largest sustainable energy project on the island.

Lanzarote: A green and pleasant island, thanks to its unspoilt beauty, sensitive urban planning and pioneering eco-villages, the Spanish town is anything but 'grotty'.Michelle Braddock, who moved to the island from Surrey 15 years ago. With her English husband, Tila, a windsurfing instructor, she owns what she claims are Lanzarote's first totally green properties.

When guests pitch up at the eco-yurts on Michelle and Tila Braddock's beautiful, organically styled finca in the north-east of Lanzarote, it's obvious they won't have to compromise on much.

This shabbily chic cottage right on the beach at Arrieta makes great use of the Canary Island's year-round sunshine by running on solar power. Inside the cottage there's a mammoth bed; outside there's a balcony with outdoor shower and courtyard for dining al fresco.
