Charco del Palo

Charco del Palo, on the north east coast of Canary island Lanzarote, is a year-round destination. It is unique, being the world’s only non-private Naturist village! There are no entrance gates – just drive in as you would any other town or village – and strip off. Charco is situated right on the coast with varied accommodation to suit everyone, from luxurious private houses to studio apartments. There are two restaurants and a small commercial shopping centre. Located far from the mass tourism resorts, there is no beach as such here, just a wilderness of craggy rocks punctuated by sand and cacti. There are three access points for swimming in the sea or sunbathing on the rocks including a natural basin that fills and empties according to the tide.

Casa Ronda

Casa Ronda is completely different from any other property within Charco del Palo. It consists of two high-end houses each with their own huge terrace. One is set above the other and the interiors are Spanish in style. Both houses are elevated at the rear of the village affording spectacular sea views. The two houses share a swimming pool between them measuring 8 x 4m.

Casa Ronda 1 is set above Casa Ronda 2 and has two floors. Casa Ronda 1 is the bigger of the two houses and has four bedrooms set over two floors making it suitable for eight people in total – though one of the bedrooms is a “transit” bedroom. All have a large bed and built in wardrobe. Bathrooms are generous in size and there is one on each floor. The rest of the house is very well equipped with leather sofa, dining room, satellite TV and stereo.

Casa Ronda 2 is all on one level inside – though still elevated – and the shared pool is on the same level. There are three bedrooms and between the two houses’ they have a huge garden with countless palms and huge cacti. Because there is a huge terrace surrounding each house, it is always possible to find a spot in the sun or shade and the views from the terraces are amazing.

The nearby sleepy village of Haría comes alive on a Saturday when it hosts a local market offering craft items, fresh fruit and vegetables, dairy produce and pastries. Timanfaya National Park (pictured), a must see for any visitor to Lanzarote, is home to the Fire Mountains – now dormant volcanoes, which once devastated the island. They feature a legacy of amazing lunar type terrain and numerous rare plant species. Cuevos de Los Verdes and Jameos del Agua – explore the caves and underground lava tunnel where a natural lake is home to a species of blind albino crabs indigenous to the island.
