Sharing Time In Lanzarote by Angie Coates.

We’d been intending to return to Lanzarote, ever since 2015, when we first stayed with Lanzarote Retreats, in the eco-village ‘Finca de Arrieta’.

This year, we finally made it back and loved it so much that we extended our stay by 5 nights. With our two youngest daughters, (aged 12 and 14) we stayed in Pebbles, a fabulous 2 bedroom apartment right on the seafront in the pretty town of Punta Mujeres.

Like all the Lanzarote Retreats, Pebbles (roof terrace photo above) is very special, offering a stunning location to create an unforgettable experience. Our day would start slowly with a swim in the sea, breakfast in one of the friendly local bars and a shop for a picnic lunch.

From then on, each day was roughly planned to include at least one beach session, maybe some windsurfing plus some time set aside for small adventures like the desert safari bike ride across the Island of La Graciosa (that none of us will ever forget!) and for ad hoc surprises such as the unexpected opening of the town Fiesta with great Mojito bars and night long singing and dancing.

Thank you Lanzarote Retreats for creating such a beautiful space for us to enjoy precious time together as a family. The time with our children flies by all too quickly, but it’s great to have your help to make the most of it.

We’ve already booked to return next year!
