Welcome to Rural Villas – Luxury Villas on Lanzarote

Our luxury villas, located on the island of Lanzarote, were designed with comfort and relaxation in mind. Restored from local farm houses, many of which are over 250 years old, our villas were furnished for the maximum enjoyment of our guests. Whether you are seeking a family vacation or a unique holiday experience, our properties are sure to please.

Our villas are located away from mass tourism in the northern part of the island, and separated into two main regions; one near the village of Teguise, and another at the foothills of the Corona Volcano, atop the cliffs of Famara. All of our villas were restored to conserve the originality and uniqueness of the island, while providing our guests with the modern comforts of a luxury accommodation. The natural landscapes and volcanoes surrounding the villas give a unique sense of tranquility and peace, while the sandy beaches and tourist attractions spread across the island are only a short drive away.

We have included some additional information about the island of Lanzarote and its main attractions on our site, and regularly post on our blog about various local events that we believe may be of interest to our visitors. Should you have any questions about our villas, or the island, please do not hesitate to contact us with the forms provided throughout the site, or leave a comment on our blog. It would be our pleasure to assist you in any inquiry you may have!

Best regards,

Oda & Yayo Fontes de León

 

Our villas in the news:

 

The Guardian Newspaper

El Aljibe in the remote village of Los Valles, where I was going to spend my last night. From the outside, it looked like a traditional Canarian farmhouse, albeit a rather chic one. Inside, however, a staircase led down through an archway into an enormous stone space with a vaulted ceiling and mezzanine sleeping area. Originally the underground water cistern for the farm, El Aljibe is now stylishly decorated with paintings and sculptures by renowned local artists, all friends of the owner, who was also close to Manrique and worked with him on some of his projects back in the 70s.

The Independent Newspaper
Further north still, I entered into the potato-farming territory at Los Valles and had a quick look at a more traditional stand-alone 150-year-old rural house, Casa Barranco, a rambling cluster of rooms around its own patio, and with its own bread oven and pool. Not far away lies El Aljibe, a unique villa with the same owner (Yayo Fontes, one of the driving forces behind rural tourism in Lanzarote), which happens to be in a former giant water cistern. This is a “special occasion” place to stay, for couples on anniversaries or honeymoon; the kitchen and bathroom, above ground, are like the bridge of a ship, while the bed is suspended down below on a platform in the middle of a softly lit vault.
