About the property

FINCA CHAFARIZ Tabayesco, Arrieta, Lanzarote, Canary Islands - Located in a Protected Landscape, a Few Minutes by Car to Beach, Shops, and Restaurants.

Our spacious, comfortable classic Canarian Country house is situated on a 10.000m2 plot outside the little village of Tabayesco (within the valley of Temisa,a nature reserve and protected landscape), surrounded by nature and small vegetable plots on the terraces.

The house has the typical local lay-out of a large (50 sqm ) central living space with access to the kitchen, the conservatory and the hall that leads to the bedrooms, situated around this central high ceilinged lounge.

The La Garita beach and local fishing village of Arrieta are a few minutes car journey - 2km, Haria village is under 10 minutes car journey or for a livelier outing you can reach Costa Teguise resort or the island capital of Arrecife within around 15 - 20 minutes.

The large 50m2 living room offers ample lounge seating, with a dining area for up to 10 people. There is also an adjoining conservatory with second sitting room, and a smaller dining table boasting beautiful views of the valley and ocean beyond.

The kitchen is fully fitted with a 4 burner cooker, oven, an A+++ fridge/freezer, blender, toaster, mixer, etc. We like to provide bare cooking essentials such as olive oil, vinegar, spices tea & coffee as well as a welcome pack.The kitchen table also seats 6 people.

Our spacious master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with a walk in shower. There are two further bedrooms, both contain twin beds (one of them with the option of a double bed if required ) plus guest bathroom.

We recently spent a year thoroughly refurbishing the house and garden to create a delightful holiday hide-away for couples and families in a very privileged location. There are no direct neighbours, thus ensuring absolute peace, quiet and privacy but with most amenities almost on your doorstep.

Over the last 25 years we have developed a substantial part of the original farmland around the house, creating a terraced garden with many endemic plants and trees, typical for this subtropical dry-zone area. We also created several relaxing chill-out areas for outdoor living including an original tree trunk gazebo and a large wooden lounging bench with a spectacular view of the valley, onwards to the sea and the village of Arrieta.

A large sheltered courtyard, surrounded by a natural stone wall houses the swimming pool. The pool sits embeded lower into the floor for depth and sits partly above ground in order to enhance childsafety (3x5x1.20m). The pool is heated by a solar panel instalation twice the size of the pool itself which is on average large enough to keep a pleasant temperature most of the year . However a spell of cloudy weather for a couple of days in winter, can bring the temperature down some degrees.

Next to the pool there is a wooden terrace, ideal for sunbathing and relaxing. The pleasant lighting creates a cosy atmosphere for night-time use, especially as the courtyard is well sheltered from the wind. A pergola made of recycled roof-timbers and adourned with ivy, means there is shade during the day. A perfect sitting area with a little pond and waterfall for extra tranquility. Our outdoor areas have been well thought out, providing guests with a very pleasant space for anything from an early breakfast, to a barbecue-evening under a spectacular starry night sky. The house has its own power supply from a sophisticated solar power installation making the most of our sunny climate.

About Hilbrand

After having lived for 25 years in this delightful little valley, we have recently moved to the nearby village and now offer Finca Chafariz to those who are looking for a truly peaceful and private location to enjoy a holiday. The valley offers the peaceful location within nature, but with most amenities conveniently at hand. We live only 1.5 km away, therefore are always at hand to help with any advice or information you may require.

Hilbrand purchased this villa in 1990

Why Hilbrand chose Haría

We both worked in the island capital - Arrecife, and were looking for a place to live in the countryside surrounded by nature, yet near enough to schools, shops and social life with our at the time young family. During one of our searches we found this place and fell in love with it straight away.

The valley of Temisa has been declared a protected landscape in the last century.

What makes this villa unique

Absolute peace, quiet and privacy but with a qood sandy beach only 2.5 km away. The nearby village of Arrieta offers a selection of shops and two supermarkets. Here you will also find a variety of good restaurants offering locally caught fresh fish and other delicacies.

Often, especially at night all you hear is the sound of waves breaking on the shore. A good variety of long and short walks can be undertaken right from your doorstep and it is an excellent area for mountain biking, (wind)surfing, kayaking, nature trails and exploring the land etc.

We have a wealth of knowledge for the local areas, from sightseeing, to trips and excursions and much more, so we are always very happy to help our guests to plan anything from outings to special locations for a birthday or anniversary. No question too big or too small, its a small island but there is much to explore :-)

Hou je van rust, privacy en natuur, boek dan dit huis

  • 5 of 5

Nee, wij zijn niet betaald door Hilbrand Leemans, de eigenaar, om dit als reactie te geven. Alle reviews tot nu toe kloppen. Dit is simpelweg een geweldig huis, ten minste: als je van rust en natuur om je heen houdt. Het huis biedt totale privacy, is opgebouwd als huis om in te wonen - wat Hilbrand en Carmen 25 jaar lang hebben gedaan - en niet 'alleen maar' als vakantiewoning. Dat is te merken. Alles is aanwezig, wat je ook maar kunt verzinnen: wifi, verwarmd zwembad - wij waren er er rond de kerst en afgezien van de eerste week was het water 23 graden -, een volledig ingerichte keuken, dvd, muzieksysteem, ruimte, een lounge, houtkacheltje. Het huis is schoon, self-supporting qua energie, voor ons een sport om aan het eind van elke middag te kijken of de zonnepanelen de accu's weer op 100% hebben kunnen krijgen.

Hilbrand zorgt voor het zwembad en komt een paar keer per week even langs om te meten en eventueel bij te stellen. Hij appt een dag van te voren zodat je precies weet waar je aan toe bent. Sowieso heeft hij een ingebouwd gevoel voor hoeveel privacy/afstand zijn gasten willen hebben. Hulde. Na 20 jaar ervaring met het huren van huizen op de Canarische eilanden rechtstreeks van de eigenaar kunnen we stellen dat dit huis met afstand het beste was. Niet het goedkoopste, wel het meest value for money.

Lanzarote is een boeiend eiland, rond de kerst en nieuwjaar hebben we prachtig weer gehad tussen de 18 en 25 graden, de wind voel je overal op het eiland maar het huis biedt steeds plekken waar je in de zon en uit de wind kunt zitten, het ligt ook aan de oostkant. Het noorden van het eiland is sowieso boeiender dan het zuiden, met uitzondering natuurlijk van het Timanfaya Park. Die dromedarissen zijn niet verplicht, maar een rondrit met de bus aldaar moet je echt doen. Wow.

In het huis liggen allerlei boekjes en wandelgidsen, de weg tussen Tabayesco en Finca Chafariz bestaat uit een gravelpad van een kilometer, geen enkel probleem, het genieten kan beginnen op het moment dat je je koffers hebt uitgepakt. Familiestrand en visrestaurants vind je in Arrieta, binnen 5 tot minuten met de auto. Dit huis is om verliefd op te worden.

Quiet Private Setting

  • 5 of 5

The house is clean, spacious, and comfortable with a great view looking toward the ocean. In particular, we enjoyed the warm private pool and lovely adjoining patio. The internet is reliable and quick enough to stream music. Definitely, this is a winner property!

We loved our stay at this remote villa.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely one week stay at Hilbrands' villa/finca during August. We were fortunate that there'd been a cancellation so we booked Thursday and stayed the following Monday.

After the initial trepidation driving up the long unlit gravel road we were pleased when we arrived there.

It's in a remote location however we found that our children (6, 9, 12) could make as much noise as they wanted whilst in the swimming pool (where they spent most of their time!) without disturbing the neighbours as there aren't any!!

As mentioned by other reviewers the water temperature in the pool was sooooo warm which was such a nice change having visited other hotels and villas in the Canaries where the water had been so cold the kids wouldn't even dip their feet in!

So many home comforts in the villa that we didn't need to travel too far except to the local beach and on several occasions we drove to Costa Teguise which is a 15 min drive away.

There's no fans or air-con however we soon got used to the heat and there are 2 windows with mosquito nets attached that we were able to keep open during the night. It's very peaceful except for the sound of the wildlife!

Unfortunately mosquitos can still enter the villa during the day when all doors and windows are open so on our last night we were all 'bit to shreds' by mosquitos, we though my daughter had chicken pox!! Take plenty of repellant.

The owner Hilbrand lived not too far away and he was happy to give us help and advice when called upon.

Overall we had a lovely holiday with so many happy memories and I'm sure we'll return in the not too distant future.

Owner's Response: The mosquito problem has been solved. Thank you for your review. I am sorry to hear that there where so many mosquitoes, this is quite unusual as there is no standing water in the vicinity. We have been investigating and have found a lid missing on the suppletion tank of the garden irrigation system which of course offered a perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes. This has now been repaired, the problem is now solved and we have had no more complaints. The weather in southern Europe has been extraordinary hot this summer and although on the Canary Islands the trade winds usually provide a fresh breeze al through the summer, when the wind drops at night it can stay quite warm. We have now installed ventilators to cool of the bedrooms at night. It is also advisable to keep the living room doors closed in the daytime to keep the heat out. This room is so big and it's cealing so high that it is not much affected by the heat.

The beach at La Garita is about 5 minutes away by car (2.5 km) as well as the fishing village of Arrieta. Here you will find two supermarkets, several shops, a diving-centre and a fine selection of good and economicaly priced seaside restaurants.

For a wider range of shops and restaurants our guests can head to Costa Teguise which is one of Lanzarote's 3 main resorts, By car this journey takes 15 minutes or a a further 5-10 minutes to the lovely island capital of Arrecife, with a brand new marina.


30 km from airport, around half an hour drive. A car is essential and can be rented at the airport. We can help you with recommendations. Detailed instructions on the route to the house will be given on booking.


Nearest village for shops and restaurants is Arrieta, 2.5 km away. Major shopping and outgoing areas you will find in Costa Teguise and the capital Arrecife, some 20 minutes away by car. The whole rest of the island is at most 50 minutes away by car.

Further Details:

The valley of Temisa is considered one of the most beautiful valleys of Lanzarote and was declared a protected landscape decades ago. In earlier times the slopes of the valley were farmed almost all the way to the top, the higher terraces now slowly reverting back to nature. The rocky outcrops houses some of the few inland breeding grounds of the Pardelas, the Canarian shearwater whose peculiar call can be heard as they arrive in the evening from a day out on the ocean foraging to feed their young. On the lower slopes many of the fields are still in use and planted with maize, onions, potatoes and a variety of other vegetables. The intricate shape of the stone walls and terraces create a delightful architecture of farmland-fields, providing a very pleasant hiking area. Numerous short and long walks can be started directly from the house. Moonlight walks highly recommended.

This north-eastern part of Lanzarote lies a considerable distance away from the major tourist resorts and offers lots of beautiful spots to discover as well as interesting places to visit like la Cueva de los Verdes, los Jameos del Agua and the spectacular cactus-garden in Guatiza designed by the artist/architect Cesar Manrique.
