César Manrique remembered Famara with joy:
"" My greatest happiness is to recall a happy childhood,five month summer vacations in the Caleta and the Famara beach with its eight kilometers of clean and fine sand framed by cliffs of more than four hundred meters high that reflected on the beach like in a mirror. That image has been engraved in my soul as something of extraordinary beauty that I will never forget in all of my life.""
This Bohemian village of surfers and fisherman, is plenty of Surf and Kite school that offer daily lessons in the amazing sandy beach, surrounding from the cliff El Risco.
Playa Famara beach is never more than an 5 minute walk from away and most luxury bungalows are within an easy 5 minute walk of the beach. Many of the luxury bungalows are in enviable locations such as frontline to the beach or in an elevated situation with spectacular views to El Risco. There is a bar, restaurant, children’s playground and mini-market on the urbanization and internet connection (WIFI).
Captivating scenery and natural works of art can be found in the north of Lanzarote thanks to the island’s volcanic history and a little help from renowned artist and architect César Manrique. Fascinating attractions like Jameos del Agua and the Cueva de los Verdes are great places to visit. Don’t miss out the Mirador del Río, a spectacular viewpoint – also built by Manrique – blending harmoniously with its surroundings and providing breathtaking views over La Graciosa and the other islets of the Chinijo archipelago.
Along the shore of the northernmost tip, which is largely undeveloped, you will find some small, idyllic fishing villages such as Arrieta and Orzola, boasting some nice seafood restaurants, excellent stops for lunch or a cool drink.
Lanzarote is a a gift of nature and without any doubt an incomparable paradise combining the magic of its history with an enviable spring climate throughout the year, beautiful beaches and breathtaking landscapes, a paradise of unique nature which friendly people proved to know how to take care of.
Lanzarote is a volcanic island, largely covered by lava fields caused by volcanic eruptions in the eighteenth century. Lanzarote was the second Biosphere Reserve in the Canaries, adding a new component:for the first time was declared by UNESCO a territory as a whole, including all of its population centers. The perfect symbiosis achieved in Lanzarote between man and nature is without any doubt the main cause of this international recognition.
On the island you will find amazing beaches, secluded coves, trekking path, bike rentals, many surf, kite and windsurf schools, scuba-diving, boat trips. You could do some climbing up to the Volcanoes, relax in one of the amazing SPA or practice Yoga during the sunset.
Veldig fin leilighet, lys og moderne. Bad og kjøkken med høy standard, vi savnet skjærekniver og espressokanne som passet til induksjon, ellers var alt vi trengte på plass. Nydelige bad. Stuen var også praktisk og fin, sofaen ikke helt etter vår smak, men alt fungerte godt. Innebygd radio på samtlige rom var ingen nødvendighet, men likevel en fin luksus, det samme med tv på flere rom. Takterassen hadde fin utsikt, men litt for mye vind til å oppholde seg der under oppholdet, dog fint for å se på utsikten. For oss fungerte det greit at leiligheten var over tre plan, trappeløsningen og alt flisarbeid nydelig. For oss som reiste med to små barn ville det ha vært ypperlig om stedet hadde en veranda i gatehøyde, gjerne med umiddelbar nærhet til sjøen, sett bort fra dette var det midt i blinken. Leiligheten var litt vanskelig å finne, pga en for oss ulogisk husnummering, huseier kom straks og møtte oss da vi ringte og det hele var helt uproblematisk. Anbefales!
Nous avons été reçu avec convivialité . L'appartement était lumineux avec une jolie vue sur le port mais l'état de propreté était médiocre (vitres, vaisselle). Il se composait d'une seule chambre alors que le descriptif de l'annonce en présentait deux. L'eau chaude n'avait aucune pression.
Part contre l'île est magnifique et nous a enchantés.
We had a great time in Lanzarote, if you like the outdoors and the natural world it's a truely great place for a holiday!
Famara beach is beutiful and very relaxed. The island is not as big as 'you think so driving around from Famara is no problem at all!!
The host responded quickly, the place was exactly as it looks in the photos and we enjoyed our stay.
Thank you so much. The apartment is perfect, so close to the beach and everything inside, what you need. We really want to come back soon.....Great!!
We booked kelafo but were put in another Appartement because of a Problem with the kelafo house. The switch was arranged very short before our trip 2 days because of slow and late reaction to our emails. That meant a lot of Stress to me which i dont like so close to departure for a trip.
The new Appartement had only 1 sleeping room which was a Bad surprise! We received a Discount of 100 € for the 10 days stay which was ok, but the missing sleeping room showed me that organization is Not their strength.
So this Feedback is Not for "Kelafo" but for "Robinson":
The tv was out of order.
The door to the Appartement was installed wrong. If you want prevent someone to walk in, you had to lock the door with the keys - even when you are inside. This was not only uncomfortable but a security issue.
We didnt liked the Appartement.
A plus for the fresh painting and new bathroom.
Had such a lovely stay in Villa Lyonia. Natalia was awesome, the communication was great and everything was very easy.
Ismael was very helpful and was there is ever we needed anything.
We had 7 people staying very comfortably in the villa which was really nice, very clean and had everything we needed. The perfect place to base yourselves for a holiday in Lanzarote.
Un sitio precioso, la casa una maravilla.
The reservation was canceled 26 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Three friends and I stayed here for a long weekend and absolutely loved it.
The hosts were amazing - very attentive and the house is beautiful and very well equipt. We were worried when we realised this by the airport, but this was not a problem in the end.
The villa is very large, but has a homely feel, we would definitely return!
everything was great
