Sub-tropical gardens, warm sands and hot tubs: Apartamentos Fariones has everything you need for a rejuvenating holiday in Lanzarote. Just a three-minute walk from Playa Grande and 10 minutes from the old town’s harbour, you’ll have shops, bars and the shore all within arms’ reach. You might simply be tempted to stay where you are, however: the complex features a rooftop terrace with a hot tub, two outdoor swimming pools and a fresh-water paddling pool. By night, you can settle in with the family for an evening of live music or bingo.
Mosaic tiling brings a touch of the Med into your home-from-home. Each apartment has a kitchen equipped with a hob and microwave, so you can concoct a home-cooked meal to enjoy in the spacious dining area – if you’re feeling adventurous, why not experiment and make Lanzarote favourite Sancocho, a tasty fish stew. For a romantic evening, open a bottle of Tempranillo, a full-bodied Spanish red wine, and sit out at the wrought-iron table on your balcony to catch the sunset, or relax in the adult-only hot tub.
Breakfast is included in the price of your stay and is served in the buffet restaurant. Prepare yourself for a day of lounging or sightseeing with fresh fruit or scrambled eggs, then head out to explore the nearby attractions, such as the fascinating Cueva de Los Verdes, home to one of the longest volcanic tunnels in the world.
