Just 500m from the centre of the typical village of Tinajo, this spacious and smartly furnished residence forms an impressive landmark.  Private and serene, it sits against a backdrop of gently rolling hills and looks out across a panoramic vista towards the shimmering blue waters of the island's northern coastline, with the nearby isle of La Graciosa visible in the distance.

To stay in Villa La Acequia is to experience being in the heartland of this beautiful and fascinating island. A short walk from the house reveals the local shops and restaurants of one of Lanzarote's quintessential villages, seemingly unchanged over the years and characterised by its uniformly painted white walls and green shutters.  To the west and just a short drive away is the unique and untouched landscape of the Timanfaya National Park, whilst to the north the dramatic sweep of sands that is the beach of Famara can be reached in just 20 minutes.

Owned by a carpenter and displaying many of his own individual and beautifully carved pieces, the house itself is stylishly decorated and boasts generous proportions that allow space for a games room with table tennis on the lower level.  Various areas of soft seating include a bright gallery-style room with windows that capture views across the village and out towards the sea, whilst to the rear and accessed via a door from the dining room is the swimming pool with its surrounding terraces and in-built barbecue.  Made pleasingly private by the walls that surround it on all sides, this enclosed outdoor area forms a perfect retreat, with only the tops of the hills that spread out behind the property being visible beyond.

Great Things to Do Near Villa La Acequia

Enjoy some fresh air and exercise...

There are lots of lovely walks around the Tinajo area either along the coast or around the edge of the 'Fire Mountains'. Wear some tough shoes and take plenty of water.

Near to Villa la Acequia is the white washed village of Mancha Blanca...

It's claim to fame is the little church of Los Dolores to which pilgrims crawl on their hands and knees during the church's main festival on 15th September. During the 6 years of volcanic activity from 1730 desperate villagers took a statue of the Virgin to a nearby volcano and, it is claimed, the eruption miraculously stopped.The church was then built in her honour.

Sample the local delicacy...

For a small island, Lanzarote has some really tasty local dishes. Try 'wrinkly potatoes' with the local 'mojo' sauces made from sweet peppers or garlic and coriander. These are usually served with fresh fish or a filleted fish, goat or rabbit stew. The white goats cheese is a real delicacy as is the smoked salmon which is smoked using a secret recipe in the village of Uga.

Tour the local bodegas and sample the delicious wine...

Take the road from Mozaga to Yaiza and you will travel right through the heart of Lanzarote's wine growing area. The vines are planted individually in little hollows in the volcanic soil - very labour intensive but the end product is worth it - a crisp Malvasia wine which has been exported to Europe for centuries.

The town of Yaiza is a beautiful and tranquil village that has won prizes for '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.

Spend a day at the beach...

One of the closest beaches to Casa Acequia is Playa de Famara, one of the longest and most outstanding beaches on the island. Backed by impressive tall cliffs, Famara on the northwest coast has a welcome cooling breeze in the warm summer months. It's a lovely place for a seaside stroll too, especially as the sun sets in the evening.

Timanfaya National Park is 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 free guided walk around one of the two routes in the park (bookable 48 hours in advance)

For something a little bit different...

Take a camel safari through Timanfaya National Park visiting the volcano craters. Young and old alike will love these ships of the desert

Mingle with the locals at Teguise market...

Tourists and locals alike pack the streets throughout the morning soaking up the atmosphere and browsing the wonderful items for sale on the stalls. Teguise is a normally a quiet, unspoilt little town so it is worth a visit meandering through its lovely streets once the market has finished.

Stroll through the picturesque town of Haria...

Especially pleasant in Spring when the roadsides and meadows are covered in wild flowers, the village is in the 'Valley of a Thousand Palms' and is quite a contrast to other parts of the island. It's best to explore Haria on foot so you can call in to the numerous craft shops where you can see artisans at work. Cesar Manrique loved the town so much he decided to retire here and is buried in the churchyard.

Stroll into Tinajo...

For an early evening tapa or two and an aperitif of the locally grown Malvasia wine.

Visit the Cesar Manrique house and museum...

You may not have heard of him before your visit to Lanzarote but you you won't fail to see his influence all over the island. Lanzarote's dearly loved architect and painter designed many of the strange designs on roundabouts and enhanced nearly every tourist attraction on the island. Visit his incredible house near Tahiche which is built into 5 volcanic bubbles.

Climb a volcano...

The Caldera Blanca near Mancha Blanca is the largest crater on the island. You can climb to the crater's rim and walk around it. It takes about an hour and offers marvellous views of the inside of the crater as well as surrounding volcanoes and over to the sea. And if this makes you curious about how volcanoes are formed, call into the Museum del Visitante just outside Mancha Blanca.

Enjoy surfing and sunsets at La Santa...

About 5 miles north of Tinajo at La Isleta, there's a sea water lagoon with calm and shallow waters. It's an ideal place to learn windsurfing (you can hire a board locally) and there are lots of areas with soft sand if you'd rather just watch. On the way back stop off at the small village of La Santa, see the spectacular coastline as you wander along the promenade past the harbour then have a meal in one of the restaurants there as you watch the sun go down.

Visit the El Patio Agricultural Museum...

In the village of Tiagua El Patio is a working farm using traditional methods. There's lots to see including restored windmills, a cactus garden, farm animals and a camel up close! You can also sample some of the wine produced on the farm.

Enjoy great views from the Mirador del Rio...

An amazing viewpoint right at the north of the island, looking towards the sea and the island of La Graciosa. High up above sheer cliffs, you'll feel on top of the world!

Call in to Omar Sharif's house...

Near Teguise in the village of Oasis de Nazaret is the former house of actor Omar Sharif. He so admired Cesar Manrique's house that he had one built for himself, but lost it a few days later in a card game. Built into the side of a cliff, it is now a recommended restaurant, museum and tourist attraction with guided tours of the house available in English.

Catch a ferry from Orzola in the north of the island over to the Isla de Graciosa...

You can truly relax here and enjoy a lovely meal overlooking the port, or go in a 4 wheel drive taxi to some incredible almost deserted beaches.

Explore the Cueva do los Verdes caves...

(the green cave) is 7 kms long, although only 2km are open to the public. History has it that years ago people would hide in these caves to escape from pirates and slave traders.The guided tour will take you through two levels of passageways of vividly coloured rock, with atmospheric lighting and haunting music to add to the mood.
