BFB's Overview

Laid-back luxury and boho chic abound at this verdant oasis nestling amongst stunning volcanic desert scenery in Lanzarote's tranquil heart. A former 18th century farm, Casa Tomaren now blends its original rustic charms with a mix of self-catering villa independence and boutique hotel services.

Accommodation is in a choice of seven pretty houses sleeping from 2-8 which are fully equipped with full kitchens, dining rooms and lounges complete contemporary comforts such as Wi-Fi, DVD and MP3 players. Each of the houses has is individually designed with a blend of Canarian, Moroccan and Indonesian furnishing complementing its charming original features including thick ochre walls, expansive wooden floors, open beamed ceilings and romantic fireplaces, complete with starter pack of wood for cosy evenings.

Daily breakfasts are included making for a relaxing start to the day, which can continue with delicious lunches and dinners available for dining-in or takeaway collection from the excellent local restaurant (2kms). Although, since each house boasts a fully equipped kitchen and comfortably furnished dining terrace, complete with BBQ and lovely views, self-catering is often preferred, especially since the local supermarket is just a short drive away (5mins).

The tranquil national park setting, lush tropical gardens and oasis pool surrounded by cosy day beds, make for a very relaxing environment especially when supplemented by the yoga, reiki and massages on offer. Staff are discrete but, when asked, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable with English well-spoken and a very welcoming attitude to children, who love exploring the gardens. Cots, highchairs and babysitting are available on request, as are activities such as bike hire, guided trekking, wine tours, sailing, diving and surfing lessons. However, for many parents, the pleasure of seeing their little ones happy exploring the grounds, splashing about on the pool's shallow edges or lolling in a hammock, relaxes them so much they find it hard to tear themselves away from a poolside day bed and getting stuck into the book they've been failing to read for weeks!

Location Information

Thanks to the genius-like foresight of home-grown architect and local hero, Caesar Manrique, Lanzarote has almost totally avoided the excesses of its fellow Canary Islands. In fact, outside of the island's capital, you'd be hard pressed to find a building more than two storeys high and without a pretty white-washed exterior and Moorish influence.


Casa Tomoren enjoys a tranquil location near the village of San Bartolome pretty much bang in the centre of the island. Its position, like a tropical oasis amongst the volcanic vineyards and national park landscape, makes it an ideal base for exploring the island which is only around 25km wide by 60kms long. The nearest shop and restaurant are within 2-3kms, whilst the beaches are a little further but just 8kms away. Past guests recommend several good restaurants within a few minutes. Most praised is the Casa del Enyesque in San Bartolome (2kms) whilst families often rate the Pizzeria El Callejon in the same village.

The nearby village of Tias has a farmers market every Saturday which is brilliant for picking up supplies of local cheese, fruit, vegetables and bread. For more standard supplies there are plenty of supermarkets within 5kms, and a good selection of restaurants within a few minutes drive. Manager, Nacho, is a great source of information on places to visit, shop, drink and eat nearby. He can also arrange or advise on bike hire, horse-riding, sailing and surfing lessons.

For beach days, don't miss a trip to the Playa Papagayo on Lanzarote's southern tip. Its white sand beach does have an entrance fee but there are toilets, car parking and a restaurant. The 40-minute coach tour of the Timanfaya National Park, tour of Caesar Manrique's former home and trip around a vineyard should not be missed. Past guests rate the El Chupadero vineyard for its great wines and tapas.


Getting There: Casa Tomaren is approx. 15kms from Lanzarote's Arrecife Airport, which is served by low-cost airlines from many UK airports including London Gatwick, Luton, Birmingham and Manchester. BFB findswww.skyscanner.net a useful resource for sourcing flights. Car rental is essential.
