BFB's Overview

A far cry from the high rise, fly and flop package holiday resorts that mar some of the Canary islands, Finca del Arietta is an ethically designed, luxurious, private estate close to the tranquil fishing village of Arrieta on Lanzarote's north coast. Owned by ex-pats Michelle and Tila, who live on site with their own brood of youngsters, the 30-acre coastal farm is now home to two small villas and six yurts, each sleeping from 2-8, and all designed following the principles of Lanzarote's most famous architect, Caesar Manrique - with sympathy towards the natural beauty of the location and protection of the environment.


All sixteen properties, enjoy shared use of the solar heated, outdoor pool and second jet pool, as well as the kids play areasand access to the cluster of friendly farm animals including Molly the donkey. The traditional Canarian fishing village of Arietta with its sandy beach and small selection of shops and cafe bars is within 300m walk, although via an uneven farm track, which can be tricky to navigate with buggies in the dark, so a torch is recommended if you're planning on eating at the sea front restaurant.

Accommodation Overview:

The Twin Yurt is actually two adjacent yurts, with their own large shower house and outdoor (roofed) kitchen, set in their own walled garden within the Eco Finca de Arietta estate. The main yurt is large at 28-square metres and houses an extra large (180cm wide) double bed, a double sofa bed and a lounge area. The smaller of the two is a cosy 8 metres square and a perfect bedroom for older children or additional adults who prefer separate sleeping areas. The accommodation is far from basic with electric lights, plug sockets, marble flooring and luxurious fabrics . The kitchen can be found on the terrace; it's cleverly shaded and offers a unique opportunity to prepare meals without missing out on the sun and sea views. It features a full size oven and fridge-freezer, 4-ring hob and granite-topped worktops. Microwaves are available on request. 'Glam-ping' doesn't get much better!

Location Information

Unlike many of Spain's popular holiday spots, Lanzarote has been protected heavy, high rise, development thanks to local artist César Manrique who's strong architectural influence can be seen in the fact that the island has kept primarily to its traditional white washed houses and low-rise buildings.

Finca de Arrieta is set just 300 metres from the beach and centre of the small village of Arrieta on Lanzarote's peaceful north coast. The village is little changed by the passage of time and unspoilt by mass tourism. Here visitors will still witness first hand fishermen in their traditional wood fishing boats and farmers ploughing fields with their donkeys.

The village has a cluster of shops, seafront restaurants and cafés. Arrieta has two beaches, one in the village next to Fisherman’s Cottage and the other in front of "Finca de Arrieta". These are child friendly beaches and on the main sandy beach there is a beach bar, restaurant, play park and toilet/shower facilities. For any fishing equipment and general supplies the Petrol station/ Mini Market at the entrance to the village is open from 8am to 9pm, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

For a small, traditional village, Arietta is well blessed with seafood eateries, five of which have seaside terraces or beach locations. The informal El Kiosko does a good line in tapas and a huge paella for Saturday and Sunday lunchtimes. Whilst, at the other end of the beach, Casa de la Playa is highly rated for more formal meals.

Finca de Arietta's owner, Michelle, lives on site with her four children and is a fabulous resource for planning excursions, activities or meals out, just ask!

  • The best thing about Finca Arrieta is undoubtedly the management team. Sally was amazingly helpful planning excursions and we even got a lift from Tila the owner who was incredibly helpful, engaging and friendly. The accommodation was great, the Yurts really are impressive from the inside and the location was wonderfully quiet (if a little isolated). Everything required for baby was here. We felt quite sorry for the other people on our flight struggling with car seats and prams but then they hadn't booked with BFB!Review dated 25/10/2012

  • Excellent family friendly place. We loved the area and the set-up of the range of kids play things ie indor play area, indoor pool, hot-tub, out door area, and the fantastic scenery. We loved it!Review dated 30/06/2011

  • Stayed in the luxury yurt royale-could not have asked for more. Perfect for a family of 4 but would sleep 2 more if needed. Great accommodation and outside area was lovely.Review dated 21/04/2011

  • Our holiday was absolutely brilliant, the Finca de arrieta is an amazing place to stay, very welcoming, and relaxing. Lanzarote deserves a different reputation, it has so much to offer! Our girls really enjoyed it too, loads of things on the Finca to keep them happy. We'll be going back I am sure.Review dated 03/11/2009

  • we had a fantastic 2 week stay in the Eco Yurt Suite this August. The Finca is a brilliant set-up and offers a lot for the family, lazing by the pool on the great Morrocan daybed, taking daytrips to the surprisingly wonderful things the island has to offer, having a donkey ride on Mollie, collecting the eggs in the morning from the hens. It was so lovely we'd definitely like to go back, this is from a family who has never returned anywhere before! Don't be put off by any preconceptions you might have of the isalnd (we had plenty!) this place is an absolute gem, and walking distance form the beach and lovely resturants, activities for kids, and grown-ups, brilliant friendly hosts, a definite thumbs up from us!Review dated 03/11/2009

  • This was our first holiday as a family, and it was truly one to remember and cherish. We stayed in the Yurt Suite - it was really beautiful and stylish and finished to a very high standard and extremely comfortable and suitable for our 1 yr old to roam around. Michelle and Tila provided all the necessary equipment for us and most importantly a warm welcome. The activities on site, from the pool to collecting eggs, the trampoline and the donkey ride were great entertainment for both parents and child! Our kind hosts should be very proud of their achievements in creating a stylish, beautiful environmentally friendly experience for their guests. I would highly recommend a stay here, and look forward to hopefully going back in the near futureReview dated 03/11/2009
