Mornings here are slow and all the better for it – you have basic supplies in the kitchen and local eggs to scramble. If you want herbs, head outside to the rock garden and pick them yourself.
Surf, bodyboard or kitesurf at nearby Famara Beach – the overlooking cliffs are spectacular and it is easy to see why folk flock here. When you’re beached out take a trip along the Volcano Route through the Timanfaya National Park and marvel at this reserve made entirely of volcanic soil. If rain makes an appearance there’s plenty of space indoors to stretch out; stoke the wood-fired oven, gather round the piano or help yourself to a book and curl up. You’ve the site to yourselves so the peace is uninterrupted.
Share a meal outdoors in the former camel shed – they’re no longer residents and the view reaches out to the sea with La Graciosa island visible in the distance.
