La Cantera is a beautiful 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom finca set in the grounds of a privately owned luxury villa with sole use of the private electrically heated swimming pool. Set in a quiet rural area with stunning views of the surrounding countryside, Atlantic Ocean and neighbouring islands of Fuerteventura and Los Lobos. Peaceful yet only a 15 minute drive from the airport, 5 minutes from the luxury yachting marina at Puerto Calero, 5 minutes from Tias for bars and restaurants and only 5 minutes to the popular tourist resort of Puerto del Carmen. La Cantera is also a perfect spot for exploring the island on foot being on one of the recommended hiking trails.

My husband and I had a very pleasant stay here, the area was quiet, peaceful and scenic, just what we wanted. The villa is well equiped, spacious and clean. The pool area is beautiful with great views. Sue, the owner was very obliging, nothing was to much trouble. Ideal for a romantic getaway. Jo Haskins From Evesham, Worcestershire, England
We had a wonderful stay in Lanzarote thanks to Natalie and Sue. The location was ideal, quiet with beautiful views, and yet close to amenities so it was never difficult to get anything we needed. It's easy to get to from the airport and yet still manages to feel like you've escaped to your own island.
The apartment is exactly as described, clean and with a well equipped kitchen and even pool towels provided. We really appreciated the lovely kitchen and comfortable bed, as well as having plenty of space to lounge around both outside and in. Having breakfast outside every day was a real treat. The heated pool was a revelation and we spent plenty of time relaxing by it enjoying the views across to the coast.
Natalie was incredibly helpful during the booking process, being able to answer all our questions and give guidance about whether to hire a car (essential to get the most out of what the island has to offer) Then when we arrived Sue was a fantastic host, seeming to know exactly when to pop by with a restaurant or trip recommendation, and yet left us alone to enjoy our time. We particularly appreciated her recommendation of the tapas bar La Cantine in Teguise and we ended up having two good meals there.
I couldn't recommend this property more highly and we're already considering a follow up visit next year.
Thanks to Sue and Eric for a lovely and relaxing 9 days in La Cantera, what a lovely place and views to die for, well equipped and totally comfortable,
very close to Conil with two excellent bars both serving Spanish food, we will be back.

One of the best pools we have ever had, on some days just like stepping into a bath.Fabulous place to stay if you do not want noise etc just beautiful views and friendly helpful owners.Lovely rooms and perfect for those who want to enjoy what real lanzarote gives to its visitors.Will definitely be going back!
Although, sadly, we didn't experience the best weather that Lanzarote has to offer when we visited this November, we were extremely comfortable at La Cantera. As has been written in another review, the photographs don't lie. There is very comfortable seating in the lounge which overlooks, and leads out on to, a small terrace with table and chairs. From there, wander down the path to the heated swimming pool with 180* vista. Dressing gowns and fluffy towels (changed every three days) in the bathroom and a super king size bed with soft pillows complete the picture. The DVD player (and films) were a boon on wet days and the wifi was reliable and fast.
Sue and Ernie are delightful friendly hosts - on hand for any help or advice but never interfering.
There is an excellent supermarket, Eurospar, about five minutes away which will fulfil most needs and a First Class restaurant, La Cabana, just nearby. We were also recommended La Ermita Tapas Bar in Tias but never made it there.
All in all, fantastic reasonably priced accommodation away from the hurly burly, but within easy reach, of Puerto del Carmen.
As I said in the title......totally recommend! 😊
We very much liked the comfort of the finca and the rural settings, central on the Island. Kitchen is Well equiped, the bed and couch comfortable for chillier mornings and evenings. When the wind lies down you can enjoy the several seats with fantastic views round the pool and patio.
The owners live in the same building but offer you complete privacy.
Sue offers laundry service.
Definetly get your Bread and cakes at the Tias Bakery , it's the best for a reasonable price.
When you like walking go to the Montana Negra where you park your car and wall inside the first volcano and the second you climb up for views. Also El Golfo is a perfect starting point for a walk.
It's spotlessly clean and roomy. 5 star luxury spa towels and dressing gowns greet you in the bathroom and a comfortable bed to rival your own. It's in our top 10 for a return visit. The owners are very accommodating.
The beaches at Puerto del Carmen are less than a 10 minute drive away and the coast is only 5 minutes by car. For windsurfing and surfing Famara beach in the north of the island is only 20 minutes away by car and the famous Papagayo beach is 15 minutes to the south.
La Cantera is situated only a short 15 minute drive from the airport in Arrecife. Cars are available for hire at the airport and reservations can be online. There is plenty of off-road parking space at the Finca and although there is a shop and bar in walking distance car hire is strongly recommended.
La Cantera is in a small rural village which has a small well-stocked local supermarket (with English products), a church, bar and restaurant.
The nearest town is Tias which offers several good restaurants and some very good supermarkets.
The tourist resort of Puerto del Carmen for bars, restaurants and shopping is a 10 minute drive away and the Puerto Calero marina is only 5 minutes down the road. All the tourist attractions are easily accessible by car from the Villa.
