“January visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2013

Spent a week in Haria at end January 2013. Director of Arte, German lady Bettina Bork, has some rooms and an apartment at the Arte centre in the middle of Haria, and another 2 apartments at her house on the outskirts of the town (about 7 min walk from town centre). My wife and I stayed in the upper apartment (no.3) at her house, and it was very good - double bedroom, kitchen/livingroom, terrace, and bath/shower/toilet room - small and compact, but well appointed, very clean and neat, and has everything. Bettina is great company, and full of information about Lanzarote art and heritage, and the late artist Cesar Manrique (who is such a dominant figure in the island's character and aspect - she worked with him for a number of years).
Haria is a great location in Lanzarote - a quiet oasis of palms in the mountains, great views, typical Lz architecture, 35 min drive from airport, 5 min drive to coastal Arrieta (nice beach, better supermarket than Haria, good restaurants), close to a number of attractions (Jameos de Agua, Cuevas Vertes, Orzola, Mirador del Rio, etc). And best of all - it is absolutely nothing like the sprawling and anonymous coastal resorts such Carmen, Blanca and Costa Teguise! Haria is real Lanzarote, and a great base to explore the best of the island - Orzola and the north, old Teguise, Playa Famara, Timanfaya volcanic national park, El Golfo in the west, etc etc - driving is easy (apart from some confusing signage around the airport), and no place is more than 1 hour from Haria.
Weather was ok - little enough clear sunshine when we were there, but temps about 17-22 all the time, breezy enough too. All in all, both Haria and Bettina's accommodation are highly recommended.

Room Tip: Apartment 3 at Bettina's house has east-facing terrace, and probably the better view.
