Community

We know where to find all things local and we support/recommend our neighbours, spreading tourism income to those most in need. We also promote rural tourism and local restaurants as well as activities (local markets, ecological food from Lanzarotes farmers, plus traditional Canarian local shops).

We also sell a hamper from a local farmer including fruits and vegetables from the island making it easy for our guests to enjoy good local produce, with the added aim to help support the home grownī products of the island along the way.

Other ideas we support in our work include:
- Local employment: Using local builders, trades men, laundry etc...
- Local purchasing policy: We encourage guest to buy local products and wine.
- We take measures to encourage our guests to spend locally.
- We provide full information on local restaurants and farmers markets.
- Encouraging the recruitment and training of local staff.
- Also we offer excursions to the markets and to the local points of interest supporting local knowledge, and respect for the Natural environment of Lanzarote along the way. Through the varied work of Cesar Manrique we aim to support his legacy and vision for the Island.
