Local dishes you may not have tried?

Almost everyone who comes to the island has tried our famous local dishes like Canarian Potatoes or perhaps Estofado. But there are some things we eat here that you may not have tried, so here are some suggestions for you, and we’ve also suggested where to go for our favourite version: Bocadillo de Pescado   […]


A number of my clients like to go to Teguise or perhaps Costa Teguise in the evenings? Some may fancy visiting La Cabana or El Navarro our favourite restaurants? Obviously there is the worry about driving if you fancy a drink. NO LONGER we have found a great taxi company based locally who will pick […]

OK don’t laugh…… YES it does rain in Lanzarote!

This poor lady was on holiday in our casita. After spending 2 hours bailing our 2 inches of water we get the panic call from Kate that a mud slide has gone through her house and that both cars were trashed! Poor Esther and John volunteered to join us in another bail out! It was […]

Free Wi Fi at Lanzarote airport

From October 19th Wi Fi is free at the airport..GREAT NEWS  holiday makers. Actually the improvements at the airport are excellent. The food choices are much more varied and the new shops are worth a visit. I have availability in November and December ( full at Christmas and New Year..sorry) mail me for bargain prices. […]

So perhaps the weather is not as sunny as you would like? There is still lots to do……….

Go for a walk! All three resorts have fabulous promenades that run along the seafront that are flat and easy to negotiate, as well as plenty of places to stop for a tapa and a beer or glass of wine. Head inland, and you’ll find the island is full on fascinating tracks that wind around […]

Staying over Christmas in Nazaret?

Is it going to Rain?

It’s been extremely hot this October. Normally at this time of year, it has started to cool down, but we’ve been seeing temperatures in the 30’s almost every day so far this month. I was only commented  yesterday that I can’t remember what it feels like to be cold. We do have some rain forecast […]

The Beach Restaurant Arrieta

Personally I think this has toppled Amanecer from my choice as favourite haunt. The location is perfect and I am so lucky as its right at the bottom of the Tabayesco hill. Always there is a fantastic fresh fish option but of course lots of other lovely dishes are available, children are VERY welcome. It […]

Teguise Market

I have never been a lover of shopping and in particular ‘markets’ but  ventured to Teguise Market yesterday and have to admit I really enjoyed it! There was a great buzzy atmosphere and lots going on. What I particularly like is the way most of the stalls are away from the centre of the village […]

Another little treat for you!

La Tabla is open in the evenings, hopefully they may decide to open at lunch times as they are doing a roaring trade at night. Many of you will know Las Maretas ( Domingo’s?) its in the same square and I understand the food is really good and well worth a try. I am told […]
