On an eco-retreat in sunny Lanzarote, just a few minutes from a lovely sandy beach, you will find an authentic Mongolian yurt where you can enjoy unique accommodation, peaceful surroundings and wonderful sea and mountain views. If you're a couple wanting a romantic escape, you’ve come to the right place.
If you’re after a sustainable holiday in the sunshine then this is it. The yurt is solid and luxurious so you’ll want for nothing in terms of home comforts, and the views from your private terrace are wonderful. And yet this whole retreat is powered by wind and solar energy, so you're definitely doing your bit for the natural world. With a stunning mountain backdrop, a beach just moments away, an array of shared facilities available and an unspoilt sky full of stars above you, this is a truly distinctive and romantic spot.
Finca de Arrieta is a 30,000 metre estate which features mature exotic gardens full of mango banana, guava and lime trees, and spectacular sea and mountain views in every direction. The Finca is wonderfully located just 300 metres from a sandy beach where you will find a seafront restaurant and bar, and the traditional fishing village of Arrieta has a good selection of restaurants and shops. In the water you can surf, sail, dive, fish, swim or windsurf, and around the island you can hike, bike, bird watch, wine taste, shop at local markets, take part in colourful fiestas and visit attractions like Rancho Texas Park and the various Centres of Art, Culture and Tourism. The mountain village of Haria is just a short drive away, and all along the coast there are golden beaches to discover. You could even take a boat over to La Graciosa, the smallest inhabited island in the Canaries.
The village of Arrieta is located on the North East coast of the island of Lanzarote. The island's only airport is located in Arrecife which is a 30 minute drive away (airport transfers can be arranged). You do not need a car in Arrieta as you have restaurants, shops and the beach on your doorstep but a car is essential for exploring the island. Flights to Lanzarote are available with Monarch, Thomson, Thomas Cook, Easyjet, Jet2com and Ryanair.

The yurt has a comfortable king size bed, plus a cot should you need it, and is built with a tiled floor and a traditional two-skin cover. It has been tastefully styled with original handpicked hard wood Mongolian furniture, and outside there is a fully fitted kitchen with a breakfast bar. A holiday in a yurt has all the good bits of camping, with none of the hassle!
The yurt has a private south-facing terrace with sun loungers, a BBQ and a shaded dining area, and there is a toilet and shower room built around a palm tree. All guests have shared use of a solar-heated swimming pool and chill-out area with a Polynesian-style daybed. Communal facilities include a covered, open room with hardwood floors, a fully-equipped kitchen, a dining area, authentic Moroccan floor seating and an on-site honesty shop selling things like pasta, charcoal, milk, washing powder and local products. There are also animal enclosures and a children’s play area. Guests are free to help themselves to eggs from the free-range hens.
The eco credentials at Finca de Arrieta are truly impressive - all the properties are off-grid and everything is powered by solar panels and wind turbines.
