The accommodation:

On the grounds of luxurious spanish Finca, Taro de Chimida, EL CACTUS and LA CUEVA are two unique self-contained guest houses with spectacular stone arches across their ceilings and a lava grotto.

The guest houses have been converted from unearthed 150 year old water storage tanks and exhibit the influence of the late artist Cesar Manrique, in particular in the use of natural lava and interesting combinations of colour.

The property has been meticulously restored and redecorated with an eccletic mix of antique and contemporary furniture and an eye to traditional canarian details.

EL CACTUS is a 90 sqm guest house providing two double bedrooms (one of which is a sleeping alcove), one twin bedroom, one en-suite bathroom with shower, and one full bathroom with tub. The living room is decorated with flair and offers TV...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014 for a stay in November 2013

We stayed in El Cactus with our children and my parents, had La Cueva. Our finca was beautiful and spacious. The children loved it. Especially the mezzanine to get away with the DS! We loved the fact that we had amazing surroundings beautiful outside area and yet we had privacy and seclusion. My parents thought it absolutely wonderful. Their finca was slightly smaller although could very comfortably have slept 4. It was very unusual in its design. The whole property uses influences from Caesar Manrique, the design and layout for the apartments and patio's is so well thought out.

We loved Lanzarote and Teguise is the prettiest town on the island. The views down to the ocean and Famara are just breathtaking. We could not have asked for a better holiday. The Sunday market in Teguise, the restaurants and bars. The boat trip over to Graciosa! I could go on for hours about how great our holiday was and how much I loved El Cactus.

Needless to say we all cannot wait to go...
