Casa Shanti is situated in the north of Lanzarote in the "Valley of 1000 Palm Trees", one of the most traditional areas of Lanzarote. This is even less affected by tourism than the rest of the island, so the view from the front door is utterly peaceful. Look across a field, past a few houses and the church to the tall palms and the even taller hills.
The house is about 200 years old, with three bedrooms so it can sleep up to six people. The name comes from an old Sanskrit word meaning peace and benediction. The style of the interior is similarly exotic, folding together influences from Morocco, India and Indonesia. And of course it retains the traditional materials of its village origins: stone, adobe and wood.
Up here in the north of Lanzarote the island is only about five miles across. So it is easy to explore the beaches on the east coast (Arrieta and the white sand dunes at Caleton Blanco spring immediately to mind) or the wilder margins of the west coast. Nor is it far to drive up to Orzola and take the ferry for a day trip to the neighbouring island of La Graciosa. Away from the coast there are extinct volcanoes, limestone caves and amazing views from the top of the Mirador del Rio.
Simplicity and beauty: a holiday to remember.
Wind-surfing and kite-surfing
Local vineyards and wine cellars
