Finca ChafarizTabayesco

Tabayesco is a sleepy, typically Spanish and very picturesque village. Arrieta is a ten minute walk away where you will find an excellent supermarket, wonderful blue flag beach, and fish restaurants that are renowned throughout the Island. Costa Teguise, a family tourist resort, is a 15-minute driveaway, as is Teguise old town where many of the island’s best restaurants are to be found. Haria (the land of a thousand palms) is only ten minutes away and is a beautiful traditional village that is well worth a visit, and host to the Saturday artesanal market. Just 15 minutes to the north you will reach the village of Orzola – A quaint fishing village located at the northern most tip of the island at the end of a scenic drive. This is where the ferry departs twice daily for the island of La Graciosa and where the famous fish restaurant “Charco Viejo” is located.


Finca Chafariz is a classic Canarian Country house situated on a 10.000m2 plot outside the little village of Tabayesco, surrounded by nature and small vegetable plots on the terraces. The house has a large central living space with access to the kitchen, the conservatory and the hall that leads to the bedrooms, situated around this central high ceilinged lounge. It offers ample seating, with a dining area for up to 10 people.

The adjoining conservatory has a second sitting room, and a smaller dining table boasting beautiful views of the valley and ocean beyond. The kitchen is fully fitted with a 4 burner cooker, oven, fridge/freezer, blender, toaster, mixer, etc. The kitchen table also seats 6 people. Our spacious master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with a walk in shower. There are two further bedrooms, both contain twin beds (one of them with the option of a double bed if required) plus guest bathroom.
The house and surrounding garden were recently thoroughly refurbished to create a delightful holiday hide-away for couples and families in a very privileged location. There are no direct neighbours, thus ensuring absolute peace, quiet and privacy but with most amenities almost on your doorstep.
To the outside is a terraced garden with many endemic plants and trees, typical for this subtropical dry-zone area. There are several relaxing chill-out areas for outdoor living including an original tree trunk gazebo and a large wooden lounging bench with a spectacular view of the valley, onwards to the sea and the village of Arrieta.

A large sheltered courtyard surrounded by a natural stone wall houses the swimming pool. The pool sits embedded lower into the floor for depth and sits partly above ground in order to enhance child safety (3x5x1.20m). The pool is heated by a solar panel installation twice the size of the pool itself which is on average large enough to keep a pleasant temperature most of the year. However a spell of cloudy weather for a couple of days in winter can bring the temperature down some degrees.
Next to the pool there is a wooden terrace, ideal for sunbathing and relaxing. The pleasant lighting creates a cosy atmosphere for night-time use, especially as the courtyard is well sheltered from the wind. A pergola made of recycled roof-timbers and adorned with ivy means there is shade during the day -a perfect sitting area with a little pond and waterfall for extra tranquillity. The outdoor areas have been well thought out, providing guests with a very pleasant space for anything from an early breakfast, to a barbecue-evening under a spectacular starry night sky. The house has its own power supply from a sophisticated solar power installation making the most of our sunny climate.

Finca Chafariz lies 1.2km from the village of Tabayesco and is almost completely self-supporting. Electricity is generated by a series of solar panels which is stored in large batteries. Warm water is provided by a solar panel on the roof – if the sky has clouded over for more than a few days the gas water heater takes over.

The La Garita beach and the local fishing village of Arrieta are a few minutes away by car car, Haria village is under 10 minutes car journey or for a livelier outing you can reach Costa Teguise resort or the island capital of Arrecife within around 15 – 20 minutes.

Some reviews for Finca Chafariz

  • Beautiful villa in a tranquil valley

    Large, comfortable, single storey villa, with extensive gardens and small swimming pool, and with total privacy in beautiful surroundings. Owner congenial and supportive. We would like to revisit.

  • Beautiful, relaxing oasis

    This has to be one of the most beautiful settings on the island, fantastic views and I should imagine even better in the summer. The villa was really well equipped it had absolutely everything you could possibly need while on holiday. It is well laid out, beds very comfortable and a beautiful wood burner in the living room. The only very slight niggle was the coldness of the water in the pool, which was slightly disappointing for the youngest of our children who loves to be in the pool. Obviously in the summer this is a complete non issue. Over all, it is a beautiful, comfortable home from home, if you you are considering staying here I would heartily recommend it.

  • Just book and be quick!

    Of all the rural 3 BR villas the Finca Chafariz was by far the most appealing one to us, and it's absolutely no wonder Hilbrand only gets glowing 5-star reviews. All reviews are spot on the house and hospitality. In our case we were looking for a secluded retreat for song-writing, to avoid any distractions and fully concentrate on the music. We couldn't have wished for a better place. We loved the absolute peace, the Spanish farm style, the beautiful views, all far away from anything touristy and yet every amenity around the corner and the beauty of Lanzarote all within an hour car drive. The house and garden feature so many nice rooms, terraces and sitting areas, that you can move with the sun/shadow and also enjoy some privacy when having to work as we did or eg. children being able to sleep while the parents still BBQ'ing.

    For us four the house was extremely spacious, and even 6 people would find ample room. The beds were wonderful, even the sofas are super comfy to take a nap on. Internet connection is good, pool is solar-heated and depends on the weather obviously, so don't expect 29 °C in early January, but still hopped in a few times after sunbathing and enjoyed it :). The garden is a botanical sensation, with so many different birds and lizards buzzing around - lots of things to discover and watch while sunbathing or brunching away. Certainly a paradise for kids and nature lovers. Good walks around the house and up the hills too. Hilbrand was a wonderful host. Extremely accommodating and always there to help or recommend the best restaurants, travel routes and (surfer) beaches. He even lent us his guitar so that we didn't have to pay extra on our flights. He also amazed us with a wealth of knowledge about ancient and modern Lanzarote. For us the point of travelling is getting to know new cultures, and this is a perfect place for it.

  • Beautifully situated property

    Thoroughly enjoyed our stay - the property was everything we expected - secluded, quiet, well-appointed and cared for. Our trip to Lanzarote was enhanced by Hil and Carmen's advice on where to go and what to do including a restaurant in a neighbouring town which we visited three times! A relaxing, comfortable stay with even some March sunshine!!

  • Relaxing and peaceful stay in a stunning location

    This property is in a peaceful location, surrounded by beautiful scenery, with lovely views down the valley to the sea. The house is very special- quite simple but sensitively built with a lot of thought and care, very spacious and clean. Surrounding the house is a beautiful garden, with plenty of places to sit. The owner (Hil) could not have been more helpful or welcoming and he responded very quickly to rectify a minor problem that arose. He also gave us some very good suggestions for trips and, in particular, routes for walks. This greatly enhanced our holiday. The location of the house is ideal: the local area is beautiful, unspoilt and uncrowded, and it is also very easy to get to all parts of the island. We would definitely like to come back.

  • Großzügiges Wohnen mit viel Komfort im nördlichen Lanzarote

    Gleich bei der Ankunft war uns (2 Personen) klar, dass wir von der Unterkunft nicht enttäuscht werden würden. Wunderschön im Barranco del Chafarís mit Blick auf das Meer, liegt das Haus in großer Entfernung zu den nächsten Nachbarn. Das geräumige und geschmackvoll eingerichtete Wohnzimmer mit den bequemen Sofas lädt zu langen abendlichen Lesesitzungen ein, nur die Konkurrenz durch die voll verglaste (ehemalige) Terrasse bewirkt, dass wir unsere Abende auch mal in unterschiedlichen Räumen verbracht haben. Eine offene Terrasse mit Meerblick existiert natürlich auch.

    Die Ausstattung ist dem Haus angemessen, alle möglichen Sitzgelegenheiten sind gut und solide. Die Küche ist ausgezeichnet angelegt und ebenfalls gut ausgestattet. Die Strom- und Warmwasserversorgung erfolgt über Solar. Für trübere Tage (im Mai zumindest gibt es solche) existiert einen Generator, der für uns unhörbar in einiger Entfernung zum Haus seine Dienste bis zur Wiederauffüllung der Akkus verrichtet. Eine gasbetriebene Therme existiert auch, wir haben sie aber nicht benutzen müssen. Der Besitzer (Hil) ist sehr freundlich, hilfsbereit und war für uns immer telefonisch erreichbar ("Wie hieß noch einmal das gute Fisch-Restaurant?"). Noch besonders positiv zu erwähnen ist die gute Internetanbindung mit Wifi und der Solar-beheizte Pool.

    Danke für die schöne Zeit! Wir können uns einen weiteren Besuch durchaus vorstellen.

  • A peaceful haven – perfect place to relax

    Thank you Hil for providing everything we needed - the sound system was the icing on the cake for my husband, also the loan of your guitar! The property is clean and spacious with the most wonderful views from every window. We loved the peace and the outside space - the photos don't do it justice. We loved watching the fish in the fish pond, the small terrace area and the pool, which was lovely and warm. Although the property has solar power both showers provided plenty of hot water. There were good sized towels, which is often a problem we find when renting a villa - plus good quality beach towels too. It was so convenient to get to Arrieta for shopping and eating out. We had great fun trying out the various fish restaurants;everyone was so friendly & didn't seem to mind that we didn't speak Spanish. At night, the lack of light pollution meant you had the most amazing view of the stars I have ever seen. It was hard to drag ourselves away from the Finca, but there are so many interesting places to visit we felt we should try to explore some of the island. We particularly enjoyed visiting Jameos Del Agua, Cesar Manrique's house and also Lagomar. We found the unusual landscape fascinating and we are certainly planning another trip to the island very soon.

    We can not recommend this Finca highly enough, if you are looking for a quiet location. Just one point to mention - the property is accessed along an un made up track & therefore when hiring a car make sure it can easily cope with this sort of terrain!

  • Fantastic house and location!

    We (family of four, two teenaged girls) rented the house for a week. It's situated in a valley between two hills, on a cul de sac dirt road, very placid. There were hardly any non-natural sounds to be heard, apart from an occasional aircraft passing by. A small but nice pool completes the whole. We had a great stay there, owner Hilbrand was very helpful and gave us some good suggestions (restaurants, places of interest). Arietta is just a few minutes' drive away, has a good shop for daily groceries and bread and some nice restaurants. Strongly recommended to people like us who like nature and tranquillity and still want to be close to a nice town, beaches and other places of interest.

  • Stunning property situated in a valley just above Tabayesco

    Beautiful house & gardens in private & secluded situation yet easy access by car to all amenities. Hil, the owner, lives locally & was very helpful if needed. The photos of the site don't do it justice, you really need to be there to appreciate the beauty of the property in it's surroundings. Unlike other properties in the Canaries the pool is very warm & even inviting for an early morning or evening dip. Everything you need for a quite & relaxing break for families or couples alike. Would definitely rent this property again, & recommend to family & friends.

  • Wonderful stay

    Had a great 15 day stay, very peaceful location and stunning view. Very spacious and clean villa. Swimming pool was a lovely temperature.

    Only problem we had was there wasn’t a microwave as advertised, contacted Hilbrand. He apologised and within a few hours a brand new microwave was delivered, now that’s what I call service. What I also liked is Hilbrand is always looking to improve the guest experience, and welcomes input from guests. Not that there is much to improve. Just in case you’re reading this review and wondering the kind of improvements I’m talking about, small things like trimming the bush in front of the conservatory lounge so better view of the sea (I told you they are small things).

    I only ever return to properties that are well looked after and spotlessly clean, so the fact I’m returning in Sept 2017 says more that my words on here.

  • We loved our stay at this remote villa

    We had a lovely one week stay at Hilbrands' villa/finca during August. We were fortunate that there'd been a cancellation so we booked Thursday and stayed the following Monday. After the initial trepidation driving up the long unlit gravel road we were pleased when we arrived there. It's in a remote location however we found that our children (6, 9, 12) could make as much noise as they wanted whilst in the swimming pool (where they spent most of their time!) without disturbing the neighbours as there aren't any!!

    As mentioned by other reviewers the water temperature in the pool was sooooo warm which was such a nice change having visited other hotels and villas in the Canaries where the water had been so cold the kids wouldn't even dip their feet in! So many home comforts in the villa that we didn't need to travel too far except to the local beach and on several occasions we drove to Costa Teguise which is a 15 min drive away. There's no fans or air-con however we soon got used to the heat and there are 2 windows with mosquito nets attached that we were able to keep open during the night. It's very peaceful except for the sound of the wildlife!

    Unfortunately mosquitos can still enter the villa during the day when all doors and windows are open so on our last night we were all 'bit to shreds' by mosquitos, we though my daughter had chicken pox!! Take plenty of repellant. The owner Hilbrand lived not too far away and he was happy to give us help and advice when called upon. Overall we had a lovely holiday with so many happy memories and I'm sure we'll return in the not too distant future.

  • Quiet Private Setting

    The house is clean, spacious, and comfortable with a great view looking toward the ocean. In particular, we enjoyed the warm private pool and lovely adjoining patio. The internet is reliable and quick enough to stream music. Definitely, this is a winner property!

  • Hou je van rust, privacy en natuur, boek dan dit huis

    Nee, wij zijn niet betaald door Hilbrand Leemans, de eigenaar, om dit als reactie te geven. Alle reviews tot nu toe kloppen. Dit is simpelweg een geweldig huis, ten minste: als je van rust en natuur om je heen houdt. Het huis biedt totale privacy, is opgebouwd als huis om in te wonen - wat Hilbrand en Carmen 25 jaar lang hebben gedaan - en niet 'alleen maar' als vakantiewoning. Dat is te merken. Alles is aanwezig, wat je ook maar kunt verzinnen: wifi, verwarmd zwembad - wij waren er er rond de kerst en afgezien van de eerste week was het water 23 graden -, een volledig ingerichte keuken, dvd, muzieksysteem, ruimte, een lounge, houtkacheltje. Het huis is schoon, self-supporting qua energie, voor ons een sport om aan het eind van elke middag te kijken of de zonnepanelen de accu's weer op 100% hebben kunnen krijgen.

    Hilbrand zorgt voor het zwembad en komt een paar keer per week even langs om te meten en eventueel bij te stellen. Hij appt een dag van te voren zodat je precies weet waar je aan toe bent. Sowieso heeft hij een ingebouwd gevoel voor hoeveel privacy/afstand zijn gasten willen hebben. Hulde. Na 20 jaar ervaring met het huren van huizen op de Canarische eilanden rechtstreeks van de eigenaar kunnen we stellen dat dit huis met afstand het beste was. Niet het goedkoopste, wel het meest value for money.

    Lanzarote is een boeiend eiland, rond de kerst en nieuwjaar hebben we prachtig weer gehad tussen de 18 en 25 graden, de wind voel je overal op het eiland maar het huis biedt steeds plekken waar je in de zon en uit de wind kunt zitten, het ligt ook aan de oostkant. Het noorden van het eiland is sowieso boeiender dan het zuiden, met uitzondering natuurlijk van het Timanfaya Park. Die dromedarissen zijn niet verplicht, maar een rondrit met de bus aldaar moet je echt doen. Wow.

    In het huis liggen allerlei boekjes en wandelgidsen, de weg tussen Tabayesco en Finca Chafariz bestaat uit een gravelpad van een kilometer, geen enkel probleem, het genieten kan beginnen op het moment dat je je koffers hebt uitgepakt. Familiestrand en visrestaurants vind je in Arrieta, binnen 5 tot minuten met de auto. Dit huis is om verliefd op te worden.

  • Lovely stay surrounded by spring beauty in this beautiful valley

    Spacious, quiet, clean, lots of nooks to go sit in, lots to look at, wonderful wild life, calm and peaceful. Oliver.

  • So peaceful and beautiful

    We were very lucky to find this lovely villa!! Especially loved the heated pool and fire place, thanks for having us Hil!!

  • An enchanted Place for more people with the most stunning view only 3 minutes drive from the beach

    The second time and for sure not the last time in Finca Chafariz. For our two small families the best and most enchanted place to be. Hilbrand is a great host. He is there if you need him, also has wonderful ideas what you can do outside normal tourist routes. The house is not only beautiful and has the best view I can imagine, it also is build with a lot of thoughts, so you have enough space to be there with 6 People or even more. It is tasteful and spacious and runs most time on solar energy. The kids love the little pool. My daughter wants to move here now. And last but not least the beautiful beach of Arrieta is only 3 Minutes drive away. So, of you are not afraid of a real hideaway and you can drive a little dirt road up the hill, it is the most wonderful place to be. Katja S.

  • Feels like a home not just a house

    Feels like a home not just a house. The owners have put a lot of thought into the property. From pictures and books to garden with nooks and crannies and home made furniture. Log fire a nice extra on cool evening when we went in January. Totally secluded in beautiful valley overlooking the sea. Hilbrand the owner showed us round and was very helpful. Arrietta with beach and restaurants a short drive and good road links to all island. A lovely property to stay in.
