Orange is the new black

Setting

Lanza-hotty

A treasure trove of antique frills and frippery, La Casa de Los Naranjos is as boutique as they come. Built over 200 years ago, the emblematic manor house sits at the foot of the Peñas del Chache, surrounded by 30 fragrant orange trees from which the hotel takes its name. It’s quite the scene, and interiors are equally coo-worthy – a charming mix of antiquarian finds, original features and comforting contemporary touches spread across eight rooms, a library full of 19th-century volumes, candlelit dining and lounge spaces and a sun-dappled courtyard.

Our favourite rooms

It’s room number 1 for a reason; mainly, the remarkably spacious bathroom and the standalone vintage tub that adorns its centre. Room number 5 is another heartbreaker with its palm-painted panels crowning the bed.

Poolside

There’s no pool, but within a 15-minute radius of La Casa de los Naranjos, you’ll find several wild, white-sand beaches to shack-up on.

Packing tips

Bring along a trusty pair of hiking boots for scaling the island’s numerous volcanic climbs.

Also

Meow! If owner Jose’s antique collection doesn’t steal your heart, the resident kittens Socks and Gabardina definitely will.

Pet‐friendly

All rooms can accommodate pets at no additional charge – you’ll want to bring your own bed and bowl, though. See more pet-friendly hotels in Lanzarote.

Children

Welcome. Babysitting can be arranged for €10 an hour with 24-hours notice and the restaurant will happily whip-up kid’s versions of whatever’s on the menu.

Sustainability efforts

Previously a civil engineer, owner Jose has taken great care in ensuring the hotel is suitably sustainable by repurposing old ceiling beams into bathroom cabinets, bedside tables and worktops. He’s also created his own irrigation system where rainwater is collected in a large cistern and filtered through a large (and rather lovely looking) stone in the wall of the dining room. The hotel also comes fitted with solar panels, low-consumption heating installations and all waste is duly recycled.

Food and Drink

Top Table

For views of the town’s thousand palms opt for dinner on the terrace. If, however, you’ve ever fancied yourself in a period drama, the candlelit dining room has just the ticket for a subtly costumed cosplay.

Dress Code

Time to dig out your best vintage finds – just like Jose’s interiors, we’re serving old-school elegance with a hint of modern eccentricity.

Hotel restaurant

Much like the other spaces of the house, the hotel’s petite restaurant is antique-chic with chandeliers, vintage paintings and a rather bodacious grandfather clock. Chef Pedro Jorge Hernández Felipe uses local market ingredients to create a rotating menu of fine European fare. At breakfast, go for the Nordic toast, a decorative take on the open sandwich, and when it comes to dinner you can’t go wrong with the duck rice.

Hotel bar

There’s no bar as such, but guests are welcome to order a glass of Canarian wine to take on the upper terrace, patio, salon or library.

Last orders

Breakfast runs from 8.30am to 10.30am and brunch from 10.30am to 1pm. Take afternoon tea between 4pm to 8pm and the last seating for dinner is 8:30pm.

Room service

Available in-room or a location of choice between 8am and 12am.

Automobiles

Wheels are a great option for exploring all that Lanzarote has to offer at your own pace. On-site parking is free for guests and open daily between 7.30am and midnight.

Worth getting out of bed for

One of Macaronesia’s most dramatic islands, there’s much more to Lanzarote than its tired old resorts-on-sea reputation. Moulded by its volcanic terrain, the island has a rich history of swashbuckling pirates, mediaeval feudalism and, by some accounts – thanks, Jean de Bethencourt – polygamous women. Thankfully (or not; we’re not here to judge) most of the island’s modern-day offerings can be enjoyed with less than three husbands and only the pirates you’ll encounter will be staffing the Museo de la Piratería, which, coincidentally, is also a great way to spend a rainy afternoon. The hotel has a number of curated experiences to whet your cultural appetite: discover the traditional houses and fish-forward cuisine of the Canary’s eighth island La Graciosa, or sail along the east coast stopping off at unpopulated coves and protected natural spaces. For the oenophilic among you, a visit to La Geria’s lava-forged vineyards followed by a sensory tasting of the island’s local grapes is sure to please. On Saturday mornings, make a beeline to Haria’s Artisanal Market where you’ll find all manner of farmhouse fare and local crafts. Pop into the César Manrique House Museum, a space dedicated to the artist who shaped and protected Lanzarote from the fishbowl fate of its siblings, before visiting his public oeuvre dotted all over the island such as the Cactus Garden, Jameos del Agua and Mirador del Rio. Finally, fasten your laces – the 90-minute trek up the Mirador del Haria is worth every step for its unparalleled views of the village and surrounding islands.

Local restaurants

Tradition meets innovation in the neighbouring village of Mácher, where Restaurant La Tegala is busy breaking all the rules. While the building’s architecture may split opinion (part Canarian country house, part glassy grand designs) Germán Blanco’s slow-and-seasonal cuisine is a decidedly uniting force with dishes like rabbit salmorejo, cooked lamb with honey or fish stew with classically Canarian gofio. In Haria’s Plaza del Castillo, local favourite Tacande serves a spice-infused fusion of Asian, Peruvian and Moroccan cuisine using locally-grown ingredients. And for simple, Mediterranean fare – think lentil stews and black risotto – La Puerta Verde has you covered.

Local cafés

Put your Spanish to the test at the local Mercado de Abastos, a market-cum-dining-hall space where you’ll be rewarded with plates of local seafood, soups and homemade salads to tide you over til’ dinner.

Local bars

Just a five-minute walk from the hotel you’ll find a smattering of bars in and around the town’s main square Plaza Leon y Castillo. Our favourite spots for a chilled one are El Rincón de Quino for plaza-based people-watching and Bar Folelé for breezy siesta sangrias on their lush raised terrace.

Anonymous review

Every hotel featured is visited personally by members of our team, given the Smith seal of approval, and then anonymously reviewed. As soon as our reviewers have returned from this miniature manor in the charming village of Haria and unpacked their César Manrique postcards and handsome market finds, a full account of their citrus-scented break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside La Casa de los Naranjos in Lanzarote

Built by a rich intellectual (whose austere portrait you can see in the reception) in the early 1800s, La Casa de Los Naranjos is a charming manor-style hotel in the palm-peppered village of Haria. Just six years ago, the house – claimed by Lanzarote’s heritage board as an ‘emblematic’ building – was snapped up by José Antonio García, who has lovingly nurtured the property back to its former glory, carefully preserving many of its stand-out original features along the way; large, bright windows, high ceilings and stained glass among them. Arriving, guests may smell La Casa before they see it, with 30 fragrant orange trees lining the front garden, and the hotel’s sensory pleasures don’t stop there; inside you’ll find Lanzarote’s oldest library stacked full of hefty 19th-century volumes, a hearty menu of Mediterranean fare knocked up by Canarian local Pedro Jorge Hernández Felipe, a sun-drenched courtyard and a shed load of gorgeous antique finds hand-selected by Jose himself. Expect vintage pianos, ornate chandeliers, grand ol’ grandfather clocks and enough gilded mirrors to rival Versaille.
