About the property

Total Peace And Privacy. The Ultimate Holiday Hideaway For Couples/Families

Sleeps up to 5. Located off a quiet country lane just 1km from the golden sand beach at Arrieta this stylish rural retreat – set in a huge, mature garden - is the perfect holiday hideaway for couples and families alike offering total peace and privacy (there are no neighbours) and genuinely breathtaking sea and mountain views, whilst still enjoying close proximity to local restaurants and shops.

Finca Natura sits on the floor of the Valley of Temisa – an area of protected beauty – just outside the village of Tabayesco - and boasts perfect green credentials as the entire property runs on solar power.

It provides an ideal base for anyone keen to enjoy a good old fashioned beach holiday or a real connection with nature, as the property has a delightful tropical garden featuring numerous varieties of palms and trees, within which the owners have created lots of different outdoor rooms and chill out spaces. Whilst the surrounding countryside offers an abundance of verdant vistas and picturesque walks.

The local beach at the coastal fishing village of Arrieta is just minutes away by car (or bike) and is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful on Lanzarote – yet without the crowds of the main resorts. Some of the island´s main cultural attractions, such as the Jameos del Agua, the Mirador del Rio and the Cactus Garden are also in close proximity.

The former Canarian farmhouse has been stylishly decorated and very comfortably furnished throughout. It also comes equipped with conveniences such as free high speed WiFi, flat screen TV and DVD library.

Finca Natura has two bedrooms and bathrooms but can be configured to sleep up to 5 people.

About Gaby Ball

We have been living on Lanzarote since 2001 and we bought the finca in 2006, living there for 7 years before we began offering it as a holiday home to visitors to the island.

Gaby Ball purchased this farmhouse in 2006

Why Gaby Ball chose Haría

We bought Finca Natura for the outdoor space, its great views and its proximity to our favourite beach. This has allowed us to indulge our passion for outdoor living and gardening as we are real plant lovers. There are atmospheric little chill out areas and zones all over the garden where guests can really relax and drink in the sea and mountain views. And the beach is just minutes away by car or bike.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Total peace and privacy. Mature Tropical Garden. Finca Natura is located off a little used track just a couple of minutes drive from Arrieta and there are no neighbours, just open fields, creating a real feeling of connection and immersion in the surrounding countryside.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house is as described in the Lanzarote Guide and on the owner's website. Gaby (the owner) has a good eye for design: the house has been well renovated, decorated and furnished. The garden is large, well planted and maintained, and has several places to sit so that you can follow the sun or shade as you wish. It is completely private, well away from other houses and roads. Yet it's only two minutes drive from the beautiful and traditional coastal town of Arrieta, which has a beach, good restaurants and all the basics you need from a supermarket. The location is very convenient for all major attractions, especially those in the less spoiled north of the island, and for the airport. Gaby lives a few miles away: she was an attentive host, helpful and unobtrusive. There is a good collection of DVDs and books and the wifi system works well. Highly recommended.

Absolutely perfect, a stunning getaway

  • 5 of 5

The finca is the most astonishing and beautiful place we have ever visited. Having been to Lanzarote a couple of times and mainly experienced the resorts and pre-booked tours, it was such a delight to hire a car, stay further out and explore the island at our own pace.

The finca has absolutely everything you could need - the kitchen facilities are great, the bathrooms are fab, and the dvd and book library were a lovely touch for taking some time out to relax. The pictures on the site don't even do it justice to how stunning it is in person.

The garden has an endless amount of lovely places to sit and observe birds and lizards, and the aloe is great for sunburn (thanks for the tip, Gaby!). The pool is perfect for cooling off in the Lanzarote heat and we spent some time in it each day - lovely and warm!

Gaby has provided everything you might need for a comfortable and interesting stay, including advice on where to get shopping, local places to go out to eat, and places to visit and we agree with everything we tried - a visit to La Graciosa is absolutely NOT to be missed (but even endless applications of factor 50 don't help when there's absolutely no shade so be very prepared and covered up!), and Arrieta has some really lovely places to eat too (it's just about walkable or only a couple of minutes drive), and the beach is beautiful too.

We'd absolutely love to come back - I can't imagine that staying anywhere else would ever come close!

Beautiful setting, breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Gaby, what a beautiful finca with everything needed to experience a home from home holiday.

The setting of Finca Natura is amazing, the sea in one direction, the mountains in the other with sunshine from dawn through to dusk. There are so many seating areas outside to enjoy the sunrise and sunset, to relax whilst reading a book or to sit out for a bbq tea (with a glass of wine or two which we enjoyed also). The finca is by far the best equipped we have stayed in and this was our 10th visit to the island over the last 20 years. We love the island and over the years have visited all the attractions, many of which we never tire of revisiting.

Thank you for a great welcome Gaby and for your advice and friendliness. We had an amazing time. We will be back. Arrieta is our favourite part of the island and we were delighted yet again to sit overlooking the ocean enjoying tapas. Great hospitality which we can very much recommend. Thank you. Wendy and Rob

Delightfully different

  • 5 of 5

I initiallly had reservations about Lanzarote as a holiday destination. We tend to favour the quiet places of world for our holidays and we have previously steered clear of the major tourist islands is the Canaries favouring La Gomera and La Palma instead. As far as Lanzarote is concerend especially the rural north of the island is concerned we were wrong. Outside the major resorts it is remarkably unspoiled with a landscape like no other I have visited.

The proper itself is located in a valley about a mile or so from the small town of Arrieta where you can purchase the necessities of life in two small supermarkets and can find a range of small restaurants and rather nice cafe. An excellent beach too. The house is located in beautiful gardens stocked with some amazing plants all carefully tended wiht plenty of places to sit out. there is an inviting looking pool too although we never got to try it due to the rather windy and cloudy weather prevailing during our stay.

The house itself is spacious with everything you will need during your holiday. The kitchen is well equipped and all is clean and tidy. Gaby, the owner met us on arrival and was there at the end of the phone if any assistance was required but everything went smoothly with no problems during the say.

There are plenty of places to visit in Lanzarote and driving there is a pleasure {outside Arrecife anyway!). Particularly pleasant is the old town of Teguise where you will find a number of good restaurants. The drive up the valley and through Los Valles was one of my favourites. Los Jameos also deserves a mention. The evening dinner concert was certainly a different experience. My fist meal in a cave!

Overall a thoroughly enjoyable holiday. Finca Natura comes highly recommended

Escape the 'rat-race'

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking to re-charge your batteries and escape the crowds , need lot's of space in beautiful surroundings, then head for Gaby & Nick's lovely retreat. The garden is a haven of peace and tranquility and a credit to them both with an abundance of seating areas ( sun and shade).

To sit and 'chill' with a glass of wine and look out to the sea or mountains is a magical experience .

Forget the tourist towns and get a taste of the real Lanzarote but with everything you need within easy driving distance, or try the lovely walks !

A truly beautiful and escape it all place

  • 5 of 5

Eco Finca Natura is a perfect holiday home true to the pictures and descriptions. A place has it all: a stunning view, a large gorgeous garden, close to nature yet convenient for living and sightseeing. Gaby's service is superb from caring the pool to additional washing and other daily stuff - she was always reachable to make sure we have a great relaxing holiday. There are cooking seasonings, coffees, toiletries etc. The garden and pool were very entertaining for kids, they play all day and run around every corner. We have never had a great holiday home like this before.

Car: recommended

Arrieta is a small unspoilt fishing village located in the north of Lanzarote. It is home to one of the best beaches on the island - but remains not crowded as it is well away from the main resorts.

Finca Natura is located in an area of outstanding and protected natural beauty in the Valley of Temisa close to the beach and guests are able to enjoy a whole host of outdoor activities such as hiking and mountain biking all year round.

Some of Lanzarote's main visitor attractions such as the Jameos del Agua, Mirador del Rio and Cactus Garden are all within a 10 to 15 minute drive. Whilst guests can also visit and explore natural beauty spots such as The Valley of 1000 Palms and El Bosque - a small wood - and historic sites such as the former island capital of Teguise.

There are also plenty of good quality restaurants within a 10 to 15 minute drive.
