About the home
A charming Canarian Casita in the peaceful, rural village of Maguez in northern Lanzarote. Ideal as a relaxing base from which to explore this fabulous island. Includes a large bedroom, private sun terrace, bathroom and kitchen/living area.
If you love walking, cycling, painting, photography, writing or you are naturalists or naturists!!! - this location for you! It is a restored Canarian Finca with loads of character . The cottage is attached to the main house but completely self contained. The ideal romantic couples retreat or if you are a single traveller - completely safe and tranquil.
The Casita offers accommodation within a traditionally built house in beautiful surroundings. Life in the village of Maguez has hardly changed for many years and there is a typical Canarian shop approximately 200 metres from the cottage where you can try out your Spanish. Also, just a stroll away from the cottage is the local village bar which also serves food. While driving into and around the village it is not unusual to see the local farmers still working the land with a donkey or the local herdsman with his goats. In the surrounding towns and villages there is a really fabulous choice of places to eat including fish and ,of course, tapas restaurants. The nearest beach is at Arrieta only 5km away a with super beach bar/restaurant.
Whilst this is the ultimate Lanzarote rural retreat ,we are fortunate to be well placed to visit some of the most famous attractions on the island and only 20 minutes drive from the nearest resort where you will be spoilt for choice of bars, restaurants and clubs.

The Lanzarote region
"Can you see with an artist’s eye what a Falcon sees flying high in the Lanzarote sky? A desolate landscape you may think below look again my friend, look long and slow, and then see the stark beauty residing there.
The land once covered by an ocean thrust up and shaped by the volcanoes' thunderous motion, setting it then into the light of day, Lanzarote was here to stay. The sun, moon, wind and rain enhanced its tortured landscape into the stark beauty we see today
Are you a budding Constable or Turner? Or even a Lee Miller? Looking for somewhere to relax and challenging to hone your skills? "

The Haria area
Nearby attractions include Cesar Manriques creations such as Jameos del Agua, Cactus Garden, Mirador del Rio and The Guinate Tropical Bird Park. The neighbouring village of Haria is only 5 minutes away where you can find bars, restaurants, an art gallery and a local craft market held every Saturday morning in the village square.
The coastal village of Arrieta is also only 10 minutes away which has a fabulous beach with beach bar and several restaurants and tapas bars. Slightly further north towards Orzola there are many white sandy beaches. The nearest Golf Course at Costa Teguise is only 15 minutes drive away.
Most people visit Lanzarote to enjoy the year round warm climate, it's unique landscape and to sample the Islands cultural centres, most of which have been influenced by the famous artist Cesar Manrique.
The island is 37 miles long and 20 miles wide and is a perfect destination for sun-lovers and those who love water sports such as surfing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, sailing, snorkelling and diving. Spectacular walking scenery and stunning mountain biking are on offer.
Beaches of all sorts can be found - including white, golden and volcanic black sand beaches - those that are suitable and safe for families, remote and wild for the surfer and even at Charco de Palo one ideal for naturists.

My wife and I spent a month in early 2013 staying in this charming property. We had a fantastic time in this comfortable and easily maintained casita.
The property is situated in a quiet village, away from the trappings of mass tourism. The sound of a donkey braying in the morning may be your morning call. Although it is attached to the owners' property, we enjoyed our privacy and independence. The owners were always available to offer tips about places to go and help with any practical matters. The property is set up so that we could spend many a happy hour outside, whether it was to enjoy an al fresco breakfast or just chilling under the warm afternoon sun on the upper terrace. The casita is accurately described and it met our needs perfectly. The living / dining room opens on to a south facing patio. The kitchen area provides every facility needed for a self-catering holiday, with full sized hob and oven, as well as a fridge large enough so that we did not need to shop every day. The large bedroom has plenty of storage space. The bathroom is equipped with a shower over the bath - there was always ample hot water at a very reasonable pressure. The wi-fi worked perfectly which meant we could keep up with family back in the UK.
Our preferred holiday making involves plenty of sightseeing and walking. There are so many places to visit to spend an enjoyable time in Lanzarote. There are numerous sandy beaches within easy driving distances and we were spoilt for choice with the wonderful restaurants we encountered! We have never eaten so many quality fish meals at such keen prices.
I would recommend hiring a car if you intend to explore this surprising island. We rented our five door hatchback from Payless – it was less than 12 euros a day. They operate a fair fuel policy and there are no excesses. They also have a reception desk in the airport, unlike some of their competitors.
I would like to thank the owners for helping to make our Lanzarote experience such a memorable one. I always had prompt replies to my emails in the lead up to our holiday. We received the warmest of welcomes on our arrival and this set the tone for our trip. The acts of kindness shown during our stay were much appreciated, making our holiday all the more memorable. The fact that Peter is a fellow Southampton football fan of long standing was just the icing on the cake!! I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to future holiday makers. You will be assured of a carefree holiday in Lanzarote.
Amazing review and thank you for taking the time and trouble to write it - so glad you enjoyed your first experience of Lanzarote and all it has to offer. People don't always realise there is a truly wonderful rural option to stay in here.

We spent a lovely week in Casa De Cabra in April . The small town of Maguez is a good base from which to explore the north of the island and there is plenty to do and see for those that want to get... more
So glad to read your review, thanks for writing it. Hope to welcome you back again.

Casa de Cabra is located in a small village (inhabited by local people) in the north of Lanzarote, about five miles off the main road from Arricife to Orzola. It is a couple of minutes from Haria. The cottage itself is perfect, with all the facilities needed and the huge plus point of a totally private large roof terrace off the bedroom (which is spacious and comfy). The owners, Linda and Pete, who live next door are charming, welcoming and have a talent for giving complete privacy; but are also very friendly and great company over a barbecue or a few drinks.
One of the absolute joys of the cottage is that you are away from all the pre-conceived notions of touristy Lanzarote. The view from the roof terrace is of cacti, palm trees, hills and the sea in the distance. You do need a car; but everything is so accessible, from the golden beach (and great beach bar / restaurant) in Arrieta (about 7 mins away) to the Cesar Manrique attractions (eg the Rio del Mirador - brilliant, the caves and the cactus garden). The fishing port at Orzola (20 ish mins away) has great restaurants and provides hours of entertainment watching the fishing boats and ferries in the harbour. Another good day out is taking the ferry from Orzola across to La Graciosa.
In Maguez itself there is a local bar (very cheap as it is a Sociadad) and two smallish shops selling food, beer, wine and basics. Haria, a few minutes by car and easy walking distance, has a great locals Saturday Market and some nice restaurants (La Frontera has good food and great views).
For a couple who want to get away from the hustle and bustle, feel part of local Lanzarote, and relax in wonderful surroundings - with places to go when you want a bit more action this is the perfect spot. Highly recommended.
Thanks for your review - we hope to welcome you back here again.
