The Canary Islands region
Casa Mila is situated in the lovely North East corner of the island, a world apart from the the more commercialised resorts, yet many of the major tourist attractions are within a 15 minute drive - the aqua park and golf course at Costa Teguise, the Caesar Manrique Foundation and Manrique's best known works - Jameos del Agua, the Green Caves, the Mirador del Rio and the Cactus Gardens.
The ferry to the charming little island of La Graciosa (still like Lanzarote was 20 years ago) sails daily from Orzola, about 12 kms away. The ferry trip takes 20 minutes and gives magnificent views of the sea cliffs of the north of Lanzarote. In Guinate there is a Tropical Park which has exotic birds, parrot shows, reptiles and play areas (approx 15 min drive).
Within the Timanfaya National Park the visitor centre runs coach trips amongst the volcanos and lava fields (30 min drive) The nearest tourist resort is Costa Teguise, about 15 kms away, which has an ample choice of shops, supermarkets, restaurants, bars and beaches as well as medical centres, banks and cash points.
The capital, Arrecife, also offers a wealth of attractions, plus a town beach currently holding a blue flag award. Surfers will want to visit Farmara, 30 minutes drive away, famous for its surf, surf schools and wild cliffs. If you would like to visit the south of the island, there is now an excellent road through the centre of the island which means you can drive down to the southern tip in approximately an hour.
Punta Mujeres is a delightful working village with a maze of narrow streets which end at the sea, and a very authentic Spanish charm. There are several restaurants (Las Tres Lunas next door couldn't be more convenient!), a seafront tapas bar, small supermarkets and a coffee shop/patisserie all within walking distance.
The village has several natural swimming pools set amongst its rocky seaward boundary which allow easy sea access for swimming and snorkelling. These pools are an important part of village life and are used by everyone from babies to great-grandmothers! The nearest sea swimming pool is 50 metres from Casa Mila..
Steps give access to the foreshore for rockpool exploration and fishing, and you can walk along the wild shoreline to the headland at Jameos del Agua. Bird watchers might enjoy the varied seabird life on the foreshore (we saw three spoonbills on our last visit), and in Summer we have bought fresh fish from the small fishing boats returning to the village slipway.
There is a small, sandy harbour beach at Arrieta (15 min walk) as well as the main La Garita beach with restaurant and toilet facilities (5 min drive). Enjoy completely non-commercial white sand beaches towards Orzola, the best of which has calm, shallow lagoons for swimming and paddling within a 10 min drive, and Orzola itself has a lovely beach and surf break. The old town of Haria, ten minutes drive away, has some excellent restaurants as well as a weekly craft market and Teguise, a beautiful little town with some interesting shops, is well worth a weekday wander round, as well as a visit to the well known Sunday market.

"A brilliant villa"
This place was just about perfect. We found Punta Mujeres was quiet but pretty, and very well placed for seeing many of the amazing attractions established by Cesar Manrique. The villa was a little … More

"The best ocean front villa on Lanzarota"
Until we stayed at Casa Mila for the first time seven years ago, I had always been of the opinion that you should only visit a place once and that there is always somewhere better to be discovered. Now, I have to admit that have one exception to this rule having just returned from our third visit to Casa Mila and looking forward to our next stay.
A truly great ocean front property in a quiet village, built to a very high standard in a very pleasing architectural style and tastfully decorated with flair and imagination. The same goes for the lovelly garden with heated pool, hot tub, abundance of loungers and many other 'creature comforts'.
Also, worthy of mention is the house keeper Julie, who keeps the house immaculate and Ken who looks after the pool, hot tub and gardens. They both have worked at the villa for many years and are very professionally in their approach. Both live only a short distance from the villa so are only a phone call away should you ever need them.
Finally, but just as important to us is the efficiency of the owners, with the booking and supplying detailed information of the area etc etc. who respond to any emails usually within a few hours and in excellent English!
If you stay here, trust me, you will not be disappointed.

"A Hidden Gem."
It pains me to write this review, as it may mean that I won't be able to re-book every year in future ! We visit this lovely villa every October, with our 2 friends, for a week of complete relax… More
Just to specify that the restaurant next door called Las Tres Lunas, in the summer is open until 7:00 pm not further, this guarantees the utmost tranquillity for al fresco dinners at Casa Mila.

"Asolutely fantastic in every way"
I have travelled to Lanzarote for 40+ years. This was one of our best visits ever. The location is not one for people who want entertainment of bars and clubs.The village is just a fishing village but with good restaurants and basic shops. The villa has everything, very well maintained with great English support if needed. I have nothing but praise all round. The position is wonderful, listening to the sea from the house and poolside was so relaxing. The restaurants locally close early, unusual for the island. You can easily walk to the little supermarket/ café up at the top of the Palenke restaurant road, where they bake their own bread. A real find. All information given in advance was very useful. Cant wait to go back

"Quite simply the best villa we have ever stayed in!"
When we arrived at Casa Mila we could not believe our luck! Both the interior and exterior are stunning,with everything you could wish for provided.
The villa overlooks the sea, with a beautiful heated pool and hot tub.There was nothing better than playing in the pool or sitting in the hot tub,listening to the sounds of the sea literally metres away !
With teenagers ,a grown up daughter ,myself and husband ,I can honestly say there was something to suit everyone at Casa Mila. Plenty of comfy patio furniture,the pool,hot tub,stylish well equiped interior,internet access,Sky TV and the playstation!!
The village is quiet with several restaurants(only open at lunch time during our stay) ,however 2 minutes drive or approx 15min walk is a larger village,where we ate out on several evenings.
There are lovely walks along the sea front ,with 'sea pools' to swim in ,just a few minutes walk from the villa.
Car hire is essential and whilst we did explore Lanzarote,I can honestly say we did not find anywhere else as beautiful as Casa Mila, for a holiday.We will be returning as soon as possible!

"This villa is fantastic, an ideal retreat in a quiet village with restaurants nearby."
The villa was in a fantastic location with beautiful views out to sea and was well equipped both inside and out. The heated pool was wonderful and whilst we didn't have children with us, we could see the benefits of sitting on the terrace sofas or around the outside table, while the children play in the pool.
My colleagues who came with us had not stayed in a self catering villa before and they are now sold on the concept!
The property is big enough for 8 people, 6 would be ideal and was pure luxury for our party of 4.
Granted if you want “All you can eat Chinese Buffet” or good old English pubs and English breakfast, Punta Majures is not for you. If however you want a traditional village, very friendly locals, nice restaurants/bars, fantastic tapas and views to die for – come here, you will not be disappointed with the property or the support from the owner.
One thing to note is that most restaurants in Punta Majures do not open in the evening during the Winter months, but this is not a problem since restaurants in Arrieta (about 10/15 mins walk away) are open until about 8 or 9 pm. There is a wonderful restaurant next door which does not interfere in anyway with the privacy of the villa.
