Famara has no big hotels and mass tourism. We want to preserve this concept and present an eco-friendly back to nature holiday experience. We think that staying in a yurt will indulge your inspiration and help you find your inner-peace.

Project Location

Lanzarote, Las Palmas, Spain

Lanzarote as part of the Canary Islands archipelago based in the middle of the Atlantic ocean is the most easterly island of the Canary archipelago, which belongs to Spain.  The Island has a climate of eternal spring so it has an all year round holiday season. In the southern part of the island the main touristic resorts are located with huge luxury hotels including all kind of comforts. The northern part of the island is more rural, wilder and therefor less touristic approached.

Yurt or glamping?
Our idea is to try a pilot project in Famara and build a unique place where people could stay along with a nature since Lanzarote has no official camping places (the only exception is camping side in Playa Papagayo in the South) where people can experience the wilderness with no TV and other daily distractions. We decided that a yurt would be perfect to achieve this kind of lifestyle. Just imagine yourself staying in a tent with a comfortable twin bed (shower and toilet inside), bean chairs place outside to chill out and admire the peace and unique lunar landscape, basic kitchen and a BBQ place. All within a walking distance to Lanzarote's perfect kite and surf spots. Since this island has the climate to stay outside all year round, all you need is a shelter for sun and wind.

A yurt is a portable, round tent covered with fabric and the structure comprises an angled assembly or latticework of pieces of wood for walls, a door frame, ribs, and a wheel possibly steam bent. Modern yurts may be permanently built on a wooden platform and use modern materials such as steam bent wooden framing or metal framing, canvas or tarpaulin, Plexiglas dome, wire rope, or radiant insulation.
We believe that people now-days are searching for different ways to spend their holidays. They need a get-away for their daily life to completely forget and recharge their batteries.


Having a yurt in our garden will give us a chance to offer the real "waterman therapy" to every single guest. They could be completely independent without any distractions and all they can hear is the sound of the waves. Furthermore they could spend some time with the whole waterman family who is living just next door and offering them the chance to become a real WATERMAN.


If the project is going be successful, we will put a few yurts more and have a real "Eco yurt glamping place".
