Location

The Camel House Casas are situated on the beautiful and dramatic island of Lanzarote (one of the Canary Islands).  The casas are situated near Macher, in the centre of the island, and are only moments from Puerto del Carmen.

Lanzarote, a Spanish island, is the easternmost of the autonomous Canary Islands, situated in the Atlantic Ocean, approximately 125 km off the coast of Africa.  The first recorded name for the island, given by Angelino Dulcert, was Insula de Lanzarotus Marocelus, after the Genoese navigator Lancelotto Malocello, from which the modern name is derived.  The island's name in the native language was Titerro(y)gatra, which may mean "the red mountains".

Lanzarote's attractions are dramatic and diverse.  They range from the spectacular golden beaches which are renowned for surfing, sailing and diving, to the natural wonders of the island, such as Timanfaya National Park, the Caves of los Verdes and the El Golfo lagoon which are ideal for exploring.

Lanzarote's wine and cuisine is well renowned.  Indeed, the Canarian Malvasía wine was a prestigious drink.  Bottles graced the top tables of kings and queens across Europe.  It was widely regarded by the cognoscenti as ‘the nectar of the gods’.  Canarian wine today is no less distrinctive.  The wines of Lanzarote, made famous by the bodegas of Stratvs and El Grifo, have won numerous international awards.

The location of the Camel House Casas in the centre of the island, provides an ideal base from which to explore and experience the various delights that Lanzarote has to offer.
