Best for Trendiness - Expert review of Finca Malvasia

Lanzarote's most stylish, boutique accommodation is a special rural retreat.

The hotel is designed by a close associate of the great local architect, César Manrique. Its friendly English owners are passionate about the island – particularly its food and wine. They happily sat down with me to suggest their personal restaurant recommendations, and can arrange massages and surfing lessons. This is a real retreat that is truly off the beaten track.

Location: 

I loved this 'finca's' location. It's reach on a bumpy track, stands in the middle of vineyards, and its landscaped gardens, with palm and banana trees, splashes of brightly coloured bougainvillea and striking cacti, are set against a volcanic backdrop. Beaches are less than half an hour’s drive away. 

Bedrooms: 

Four airy and well-equipped white stone apartments, each with its own terrace overlooking the pool, feature king-size beds with Egyptian cotton and upmarket toiletries. The DVD players, with well-stocked DVD library are a welcome touch, as is the complimentary bottle of wine provided on arrival. Rooms are rustic and tastefully decorated and I felt so completely relaxed on my stay in my spotlessly clean, spacious apartment that I had to drag myself away to explore the island.

There is a pretty, lagoon-shaped, solar-heated pool surrounded by tropical gardens, but no bar or restaurant. Oh, and there is also a yoga/meditation hut that adds to the peaceful vibe.

Eating and drinking: 

Gourmet breakfasts of fresh bread, pastries and fruit can be served on your terrace on request. Barbecues and Moroccan tagines can be arranged according to availability.

Leisure facilities: 

A pool with sun loungers, yoga hut, massage room and barbecue are all available to guests.

Service: 

This is not a hotel, so don’t expect traditional style service, but the young owners are very keen to offer advice to their guests.
