Having opted to holiday in non-commercial villas, I can honestly say that La Granja is an absolutely beautiful villa. Situated in Montana Blanca, a car is highly recommended although Playa Honda is only a few kilometres away and there is a regular bus service that runs through the village.

The description of the villa doesn't do it justice, there were 5 of us in total with 2 of us requiring additional needs. This didn't faze Paul, the owner, one bit, he was more than welcoming and accommodating. Paul showed us the local bar, and an excellent Mexican restaurant in Arrecife, La Lupe ( highly recommended). Paul showed us where the best shops were and was on hand for any questions or advice when needed even where the local Pharmacy was.

The villa itself is in the sleepy village of Montana Blanca, but with the pool and outside space at the villa we didn't feel the need to eat out all the time, preferring relaxed meals on the terrace at the villa.

As well as the pool there is a games room with a pool table and good selection of games to keep you entertained, also a VAST selection of books, as an avid reader I was in my element. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend La Granja to anyone wanted to get away from the crowds but with easy access to all amenities that Lanzarote has to offer . In fact juat spoke to Paul to return next year

Delightful farmhouse well situated

  • 4 of 5

This property is a delightful old farmhouse in the centre of the island. It is excellent situated for travel to all points of the island. A car is essential but this can be arranged through the owners and delivered to the house, as they will meet you at the airport. The property mixes old charm with modern convenience with well cited bathrooms and kitchen. Paul is on site in the next door cottage and he can provide excellent BBQs if asked. There are walks and places of interest within easy reach. Do not miss the El Grifo vineyard or the national park covering the areas affected by the main volcanic eruptions. Paul's knowledge of places to eat is also to be tapped into. There is a very good typical restaurant/bar in the village which is highly recommended.

We will be back.

Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

La Granja is a fabulous house, well equipped and beautifully decorated. Although it is very old there are lovely modern bathrooms and kitchen. There is a nice pool and plenty of outside space to eat in or relax under the ancient eucalyptus trees. It is very convenient for Famara beach by car and other attractions are within easy reach. Paul the proprietor was very welcoming and helpful when needed but as his accommodation is separate and self-contained he was completely unobtrusive. There are a good range of shops and places to eat in Tias and the surrounding area. I would recommend La Granja and would love to return as we had such a great holiday there.

La Granja is a traditional Canarian farmhouse which has quietly looked over the village of Montana Blanca, towards the ocean, for more than 200 years. The house lies between Montana Guatisea and Montana Blanca with views of the sea to the West. To the East is the wine growing area of La Geria which adjoins the Timanfaya National Park. One of the best wineries on the island is within walking distance and is well worth a visit.

The village is almost in the middle of Lanzarote allowing easy access to:

- all the amazing buildings, art and sculpture created by Cesar Manrique, the island's wonderful artist and guardian

- the wind-surfing beach at Famara (7 miles) where '2000 years BC' was filmed

- various bathing beaches

- the capital Arrecife (5 miles) and within seven miles the resorts of Puerto del Carmen, Costa Teguise and the old capital of Teguise with its Sunday market

- there are two golf courses within eight miles

- a wide choice of excellent restaurants

Other Activities: Gokarting, aquapark, zoo, riding centre, dolphin museum

Golf: Costa Teguise Golf - It is an 18-hole, par 72 par course which ranges in length from 4938 metres to 6,041 metres at its longest.

Course facilities - the course benefits from an excellent clubhouse with a Pro-shop, Restaurant and Coffee Bar.

A full range of equipment is available for hire from half and full sets of clubs through to Golf Buggies.

The course has a resident pro and offers both private and group lessons.

Puerto del Carmen Golf - It is an 18-hole, par 72 course with four par 3's, four par 5's and ten par 4's, with a total length of 6,133 metres.

The course was conceived to appeal to any player regardless of handicap, to enjoy the game on wide fairways and big greens
