Responsible tourism: Lanzarote villa vacation, Fishermans Cottage, Canary Islands

Environment

Each cottage has its own green credentials including low volt lighting, A+ class fridge/freezer, linen is changed once a week in order to save water, half flush toilets and is within walking/cycling distance to amenities. The cottage is "off the national grid" and gives guests the opportunity to experience first hand, living with solar panels using the latest renewable energy systems which work very efficiently.

We promote waste reduction by encouraging recycling and there are recycling bins locally in the village. We educate staff, guests and local schools about our environmental practices and on the solar energy system used. In our office we have low energy lighting and reuse paper.

Community

We have used local stone and tradesmen in the restoration of the cottage. We promote rural tourism to our guests and encourage them to eat out locally and use local amenities such as shops, sports facilities, restaurants and farmers markets. We offer excursions for locals to visit the cottage and see the effectiveness of the solar power system.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


The best part was staying in the tiny fishing village of Punta Mujeres and interact with the locals simply by having a cortado or getting a beer with the others.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


This is the best slow travel I have experienced. Highly recommended, if you want to walk, trek, read, write, have great food and surrounded by simple, kind
people. An unforgettable vacation where the pace was slow and the locals very kind including the mini market at Punta Mujeres, the hair dresser and folks
at Bar Palenka. Make the effort to hang out with the locals, apart from walking along the coast all the way to Jameous Del Aqua and La Cueva de Les Verdes. One can easily do without a car. The buses are reliable.

If you enjoy quiet, this is the place for unhurried reflection and watching birds, sun rises and sun sets. The coast was three mins from our villa.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


I think it certainly helped the local people, considering there were no hotel or supermarket chains. It helped the environment, considering we did not have a
car and were limited to walking or taking the local bus. Our visits to some tourist spots contributed to conservation, I hope.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


Excellent. No complaints. But the service at our accommodation could be even better. It was not always easy to get information especially about transport.
But other than that, the locals were friendly and it could have been better.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


Arriving at Fisherman’s Cottage and seeing the wonderful location.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


It's not a vacation destination for clubbers. If you want a few days relaxation by the sea come to fisherman’s cottage.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


We shopped in the local supermarket and ate out locally. The cottage was totally solar powered with 'green' loos. So yes to both.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


10 out of 10. It was so much better than I expected. Jill and Maria were both lovely and friendly. The cottage was beautiful, the location was perfect. I will definitely be telling everyone about it, although was tempted to keep it as my secret! I will be revisiting. I only went for 2 nights but it was great. So good to get away from London and the rain for a weekend of sun, food and local wine.
