Accommodation

  • Ground Floor: Entrance hall.  Double bedroom.  Twin bedroom.  Sitting room (TV, DVD, WiFi). Kitchen/dining room (oven, dishwasher, microwave, washing machine).  Bathroom.  Shower room. 
  • Outside:  Enclosed terraced grounds.  Poolside shower.  Electric barbecue. 
  • Private heated swimming pool (6.5m x 4.5m at widest points, uniform depth of 1.4m)

Imagine relaxing by the pool and looking out across a sweeping vista of gently rolling hills, strolling down the road to stock up on supplies in the local village shop and then returning to prepare dinner on the barbecue whilst admiring the picture-postcard scene that unfolds ahead of you as the sun sets behind the undulating silhouette of interlinking hilltops.

This is the laidback lifestyle that can be enjoyed at Casa Antonio, a quintessential Canary Island home in the sleepy village of Guatiza, just 3km from the rugged shoreline, secret swimming pools and atmospheric coastal villages of Lanzarote’s blissfully unspoilt northeastern coast. 

Ideally located in the heart of the village, just 100m from the mini-market and a similar distance from the first of two local restaurants, this is an ideal base from which to soak up the relaxed atmosphere of a typical island community whilst at the same time benefitting from an open outlook across the surrounding countryside.

Through its typically Canarian façade of neatly whitewashed walls, a thick wooden door leads the way into a smart reception hall where high ceilings, fringed with decorative mouldings, instantly convey an air of colonial elegance in this much-loved family home.  On either side of here, the two bedrooms look onto the village through tall shuttered windows; beyond, light floods through a skylight into the centrally located sitting room.

It is at the rear of the house, however, that you will no doubt spend much of your time.  From the wonderfully spacious kitchen with its incorporated dining area, you will find yourself looking out onto the pool, its surrounding terraces and the most picturesque of rural backdrops.  With such a scenic vista stretching out ahead of you and a pleasing sense of privacy provided by the perimeter wall, you will be able to enjoy Lanzarote’s unique and beautifully unspoilt landscape from this convenient village location.

The swimming pool is heated from 1 October – 31 May.  Pool heating during other months of the year is available on request and payable locally (€8 per day).

Great Things to Do Near Casa Antonio

Get Volcanic at Timanfaya National Park

The number one attraction on the island, this national park still has active volcanoes and you will see demonstrations which prove just how hot the earth is! A bus tour shows you the amazing but eerie result of the last volcanic eruption from 1730-36, with craters, colourful molten lava flows and ash - a landscape little changed over the intervening years. For a close-up view, book a guided walk around one of the two routes in the park (bookable 48 hours in advance).

Cactus galore

Just 700m from the house, in Guatiza's famed Cactus Gardens there are hundreds and hundreds of different, weird and wonderful varieties of cactus of all shapes and sizes - one of the best collections in the world. Laid out in beautiful gardens designed by César Manrique, this is a plant lover's paradise.

Relax in Puerto Calero

The luxurious marina is backed by a wide range of bars and restaurants and in the streets behind the promenade you’ll find designer shops such as Ralph Lauren, Lacoste, Hugo Boss and Desigual. After a spot of shopping why not enjoy a drink and watch the world go by.

Try some tapas in several of the tapas bars in Tías

Some say La Ermita has the best tapas on the island! Try crab stuffed peppers, pastries filled with goat's cheese or ham, or pork in apricot sauce. There are vegetarian options too. Happy eating!

The perfect day....

Take a picnic and spend a day snorkelling and lazing on one of the beautiful coves at Papagayo, then round off the evening with a delicious fish dinner by the sea in the little town of El Golfo. The fish will have been freshly caught that day.

Go on a submarine safari

With daily departures from the marina at Puerto Calero, this fascinating submarine trip gives you the chance to discover a variety of marine life and see why Lanzarote's unique volcanic ecosystem has earned itself 'Protected Biosphere Reserve' status.

Cinema and stars

Lanzarote’s first open air cinema is located at the Biosfera Commercial centre in Puerto del Carmen. Enjoy nightly screenings of blockbuster films in comfy seating with a push button waiter service offering food and drink from a full bar and snack menu.

Visit La Geria

Visit a bodega or two in the breath-taking La Geria region to learn about Lanzarote’s ingenious wine production.

Dive at the Museo Atlántico

It took British artist Jason deCaires Taylor two years to create this stunning underwater museum which is situated just off the coast of Playa Blanca. At a depth of around 14 metres, the museum consists of over 200 figures, a 300 ton/30-metre-long wall, a botanical garden and a ring of statues. Everything has been constructed using a PH neutral concrete and already sea life is beginning to appear on the artificial reef. Divers, accompanied by licensed guides from local dive schools can now visit the museum and at just 14m, it is suitable for beginners.

Cruise along the coast

Chillout cruises offer a range of excursions which leave from the harbour at Playa Blanca, cruising along the coast to Papagayo. You can take a dip from the boat and there are two Stand Up Paddle (SUP) boards and a selection of fins and snorkels for guests to use. The longer, more expensive cruises include food if you want to make a day of it. You can book online at chilloutcruise.com or by phoning (0034) 649 023 013.

After touring the Timanfaya national park

Have a leisurely lunch in their restaurant El Diablo, where food is cooked using geothermal heat in an outdoor barbecue.

The town of Yaiza is well worth a visit

a beautiful and tranquil village that has won prizes for being 'the loveliest village in Spain'. With its pristinely-kept square, 17th century church of Nuestro Señora de los Remedios, wonderful well-kept gardens, intriguing souvenir shops and tapas bars, it's a real gem.

Eat wrinkly potatoes

You will see 'Papas Arrugadas' on every menu! Tasty locally grown potatoes which were traditionally cooked in seawater, now just sea salt, and then baked to produce a salty wrinkly skin. They are served with two types of tasty sauce called 'mojo'; a mild green sauce and a spicy red one. Delicious!

A Casa José Saramago

Join a guided tour around the house of Portuguese Nobel prize-winner for Literature José Saramago who lived in Tías in Lanzarote for the last 18 years of his life (in exile). Even if you have not read his books, the house is a fascinating museum offering an insight into the great writer's personal life.

Cueva de los Verdes

The Cueva de Los Verdes is part of a 7km long lava tube formed about 3,000 years ago when the La Corona volcano erupted. A 2km pathway leads through the tunnel which is carefully lit to produce a beautifully atmospheric tour. The caves used to be an excellent place for locals to hide from pirates. Combine this with a visit to Jameos del Agua - they are both part of the same volcanic tube.

Jameos del Agua

An underground lagoon inside a volcanic tunnel is populated by innumerable albino crabs, tiny and white and unique to the lake. The attraction is full of surprises, as you emerge from the underground cave into another open air one lined with tropical plants and dominated by an opulent white swimming pool. The steep sides create great acoustics and frequent concerts are held here. An attraction not to missed!

Find time to visit the island of La Graciosa

Ferries leave regularly from Órzola to this incredibly beautiful and laid-back island where there are no tarmacked roads. You can hire a bike to explore the deserted beaches or just enjoy a relaxing meal in one of the many restaurants around the harbour.

Visit the Valley of a Thousand Palms

The pretty white-washed village of Haría sits in a beautiful verdant oasis known as ‘The Valley of a Thousand Palms’. Here you’ll also find the home of the famous artist and architect César Manrique, Lanzarote’s most famous son.

Arrieta and La Garita beach

Away from the beaten track, Arrieta is a delightful town with a very Canarian feel. It has a jetty, a working fishing port and some excellent harbourside restaurants. The beach, La Garita, is a blue flag beach great for paddling and so very popular with families - and only a 10 minute drive from Casa Antonio!

Get a bird’s eye view of La Graciosa

In the north of the island, pick up and follow signs to the Mirador del Río to get a stunning view over La Graciosa Island. Whilst this look out point has been used for varying purposes for hundreds of years, the current structure was created in 1974 by César Manrique with architects Jesús Soto and Eduardo Caceres. At the time of its construction, it was considered one of the most important modern buildings in the world.
