London Evening Standard featuring some lovely ideas for February half-term escapes… including Finca de Arrieta!

“Quirky doesn’t come close to describing this unique family-friendly self-sufficient eco-resort of stylish yurts and volcanic-stone cottages. Expect Balinese furniture, fully-equipped kitchens and a homely vibe. The pool is solar-heated, the playground is fantastic with its giant chess set, trampoline and real boat to clamber over, and you’re just 300m from the sea.armed with chilled cava. He drives me the short distance north along the west coast to Finca de Arrieta, a plot of 15 yurts, villas and traditional cottages just yards from a natural beach. Part hipster, part hippie, it’s cool community living under a canopy of stars — a place where couples, families and wannabe surfers all converge to take a deep breath. For the extra-stressed there’s also Molly, a donkey on call for therapeutic petting duties. Think The Good Life goes glamping. And not a straw hat in sight.”
