The Canary Islands region
The unspoilt island of Lanzarote owes it's major attractions to the great artist Cesar Manrique. You will see examples of his work all over the island. His former home in Tahiche is just one of the many must visit places to see. Famous as a volcabic island, Manrique manages to capture and make the most of the unique landscape. Close by is Jameos del Agua, for us, a magical place capturing the beauty of the the artistic imagination of Manrique and using the aftermath of a volcanic underground eruption. On a Saturday night it is possible to eat while listening to live music next to the lagoon. In the 1700's the volcanoes continued to erupt for a total of six years.
The fiesta of San Juan is an extra special time to visit. The fesivities in Haria continue for over a week. These include a procession in local Canarian dress, dancing 'til the small hours, music concerts, local food, fireworks and lots more. This is celebrated all over the island with a bonfire, though in Haria, San Juan is our patron saint and the celebrations continue.
Carnival is usually during late February or early March. Dates change each year. A fabulous opportunity to see the whole village enjoying the fun. Followed by dancing in the square. Don´t forget to bring your costume.
The climate makes it an ideal all year round holiday destination. Though obviously cooler in the winter months but with so much to see and do, you wont worry about that.
Haria is situated in the mountains but with a short 5 minute drive to the nearest beach. There are bars, restaurants, shops, supermarkets, a bank and everything you need to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. There is also a co-operative with a butchers, fishmongers, greengrocers, health food store and cafe with takeaway food. Within a ten minute drive, there are over thirty more restaurants to choose from if you want to explore the other villages. The coastal restaurants well known for their excellent fresh fish and seafood. Or try the local delicacies of goat and rabbit. Lanzarote wines are superb and as well as La Geria, the main area of vineyards, there are several local wines which are certainly worth a try. Just around the corner from Mirador del Rio is a very good bodega in Ye.
The Saturday artesan market has handmade crafts, cheeses, wine and local produce. The village square comes alive with music, street artists and much more. Wander around the stalls or sit and relax at a bar/restaurant watching the world go by.
The gallery has regular exhibitions of paintings or photography. Situated underground in the old village well.
You are never far from any sport you may wish to indulge in, from snorkelling, diving, windsurfing, fishing, cycling, hangliding, horse riding to a relaxing stroll aroung the mountain path, or for those more adventurous a climb over the rugged mountainside.
Cesar Manrique´s home in the village of Haria has recently been opened to the public. A must on your list of things to do. Left in it´s original state. In his studio you will see the latest painting he was working on.
The centre of the village is a ten minute stroll. As well as other bars and restaurants, the local sociedad (a combination of community hall and social club) is a great place to eat. Very reasonably priced and a chance to mix with the locals. A short drive into Maguez and you also have the opportunity to eat in their sociedad which has an excellent selection of food and menu del dia.

"Peace, seclusion and wonderful views"
The pictures of this lovely property give a good idea of what it's like - except if anything, it's even better once you are there. Perched on the hills at the edge of Haria, the sweeping views down to the sea are spectacular from the roof terrace. Yet you are completely secluded in the oasis-like garden, which you have the exclusive use of when staying in the apartment. The apartment itself is compact but is well-appointed and has everything you need. Completely quiet at night too.
The centre of Haria is an enjoyable 10 minute stroll away. It's a wonderfully picturesque place - a real gem of an ancient Canarian town where you will still find farmers working the fields, raising all sorts of crops in this fertile part of the island. There is a great choice of restaurants and a few bars if you don't want to eat in, within walking distance or a short hop in the car. Unspoilt beaches a short drive away. A car is a must here - though all the distances are very short. Even to this remote spot, it's just half an hour from the airport. There is so much to see and do in the area. There are several must-dos which your hosts in the adjoining house will be able to tell you about.
If you are looking for a different kind of Lanzarote holiday, away from the mass-market resorts, then you will certainly find it at Arca de Noe.
