Casa La Guajira

The Canary IslandsLanzarote › Güime

A traditional house full of rustic charm with its own swimming pool, in a quiet but centrally located village.

Centrally located for exploring Lanzarote's many attractions, yet set away from the busy resort areas, Casa La Guijira will appeal to couples and families who would like to enjoy their own private swimming pool, but who prefer a traditional character property over the rows of identical villas found in the coastal resorts. La Guajira is a restored 150-year old farmhouse situated in the small village of Güime, offering spacious accommodation full of quirky charm.

Through a pretty Canarian courtyard, you enter directly into the large living room with plenty of comfortable seating, satellite TV (limited English-language channels) and an attractive feature fireplace. An archway leads through to the dining area, and beyond that the rustic style kitchen with a large fridge, gas hob, electric oven and a small breakfast area. To one side of the house are two bedrooms (one with double bed, the other with twin beds) and two bathrooms (one with bathtub, the other with shower). A third bedroom, with a single bed, is at the opposite end of the house.

The raised sun terrace incorporates a private pool (approximately 4 x 6 metres) and an al-fresco dining area with a brick-built barbecue. Next to this, there is a cosy day room.

Although Güime is a fairly sleepy village, with one restaurant, a bar and a small mini-market, it is just 5 km from the island capital Arrecife and the airport, and less than 10 km from the sandy resort beaches of Matagorda and Playa de Los Pocillos. In the opposite direction, the village of San Bartolomé with its farming museum is just over 3 km away and just beyond this lies the distinctive wine-growing area of La Geria. All of the island's main sights, including the Timanfaya National Park, the César Manrique Foundation, the former capital Teguise, and the Caves of Los Verdes and Jameos del Agua, can be reached in no more than half an hour using the hire car included in your holiday.
