“Beautifully restored 18th-century cottage just outside Yaiza Village, boasting ocean and mountain views. Contemporary interiors with rustic touches, large bright bedrooms and hand painted decoration. A perfect base for exploring the Island, with owner José as your always helpful guide. ”

Hotel Review

Hilario and his camel were among the first settlers on Lanzarote. Perched between sleepy Yaiza village and the mountains of Fire National Park, his one-time casa is now a beautifully appointed seven-roomed guesthouse arranged around a serene courtyard and tiny pool. Opt for bijou No 7 with its sea-and-sunset view, or enormous No 4 if you long for cornflower blue walls, a Chinese mural and a massive bed.

See What They Say

This new project comes from the creators of la Casona in Yaiza with a purpose to astonish our guests as always. Casa de Hilario is an ancient finca where Lanzarote's famous Hilario Lanzaroteño used to live in the enviable surroundings of the Fire Mountains (National Park of Timanfaya). This place got its name “Islote de Hilario” (small Island of Hilario) because of this man, who used to collect leaves from the fig trees that grew there and with which he fed his camel
