We stayed at the fishermans cottage between 10-17 January.Great to leave freezing cold weather in UK behind for a week.The cottage is lovely its quirkiness being its charm.Having a shower outside every morning was a great start to the day. Arrieta is a nice quiet place to stay great beach and places to eat. It was good to have the Finca close by for fresh eggs and any help needed. Lanzarote is a fantastic island to explore and easy to drive around we particularly loved our time over on La Graciosa.Michelle and Tila have done a brilliant job in offering the chance to enjoy the real Lanzarote
Absolutely fantastic stay at the Fisherman's Cottage. Couldn't of wished for more. Perfect for a relaxing break with the sound of the sea.Thanks.
