- – A night in a country villa for a dose of sheer comfort and nature.
Years ago, the inhabitants of this remote village would look out from atop the Gaida Mountain and scan the horizon for any sign of the mast of a much feared Berber ship. Hence the name of ‘La Asomada’ (the lookout), a cascade of small houses, many with their own tiny allotments growing onions, garlic, potatoes and peppers.
A visit to this village not only reveals the century-old systems used to collect water (special wells and cisterns), but the road to La Asomada also leads to Timanfaya National Park, following beautiful trails made of volcanic lapilli. This is also the way to La Geria, the heart of wine making in Lanzarote. Rural accommodation has reached very high levels of quality. The area’s rural villas and apartments are fine examples of reformed properties that preserve the structure and materials used in the original construction. Many offer a hot tub, quaint old patios to sit out and sunbathe on, and all the modern amenities you need while surrounded by nature, all just minutes away from Puerto del Carmen.
