This little cottage is something really special. Set in an isolated spot in the unique Lanzarote landscape, it is a typical Canarian cottage decorated in an eclectic rustic style. There's accommodation for four, with a big kitchen, a big living room, a large and unusual bathroom with a marble bath, and plenty of space outside to sit and take in the view.
Isolated it may be, but La Geria is not remote. It's just a five minute walk to the local shop and a Canarian tapas bar on the other side of the volcano. (That's how the owner describes it; where else would you get directions like that!?) The renowned wine bodegas in the village of La Geria are also close by, so it would be a shame not to pop in for a tasting.
La Geria Cottage is part of an old Canarian wine-producing farm, so it has plenty of space around planted with grape vines and fruit trees in the traditional Lanzarote way. In every direction the views stretch out across the famous black fields to Puerto del Carmen, Fuerteventura, Timanfaya National Park, the Famara cliffs and Papagayo beach.
Distances are short on Lanzarote. There are 10 surrounding peaks to climb if you're feeling energetic. If not, a very short drive will take you to the villages of Uga and Yaiza, the Tamanfaya mountain, or the Papagayo and Famara beaches. Even the airport is only 15 minutes away.
