La Graciosa – the “Graceful” – the “African” island – a world of its own.

At time of arrival you will already feel the unique atmosphere of LA GRACIOSA and that the clocks run differently.

There are no bituminized roads and no cars, except from some Jeeps. Usually, you will be picked up by Jeep from the renter himself, and after a short orientation tour through the village be taken to your appartement.

Our staff is always ready to fulfil your special wishes or if there should be any problems. I.e. if you do not want to fish yourself, we organize you the best, freshest fish, which you can then prepare in your appartement´s modern, fully equipped kitchen.

 

All you need

Next to Pedro Barba, a small, private holiday complex, is the capital “Caleta del Sebo”, the only village of the island. The quaint fishing village mainly consists of white, mostly single-story houses. In Caleta del Sebo, there is a bank, a post office, a church, several phone boxes, a doctor´s surgery and a chemist´s. The bakery offers fresh bread and “sweet pastries” daily, while you find a rich assortment of foods in the supermarket, delivered from Lanzarote by ferry frequently. In the restaurants with their delicious, native cuisine, beside salads and meat-dishes, we especially recommend you the fish and seafood.
