Animals are an essential part of the family unit. They are precious, faithful and the best friends life can give us. An important member of your family. Whoever lives with cats or dogs, knows that travelling with pets, in some cases, can be a real headache .Finding somewhere that accepts pets isn’t an easy task. There are still many places that do not accept animals.

For this reason, El Quinto, our ‘animal friendly’ cottage in Lanzarote, makes it easy for you, providing everything you need to enjoy a fantastic holiday with family or friends, not forgetting your dog, cat or other domestic pet. Bring them with you on holiday!

Preparing your journey

You don’t need to look for other alternatives, such as leaving your animal with a friend or a member of your family, book a kennel or be separated from them on holiday.

The airlines that travel to the island from the Peninsula such as Iberia or Air Europa, have allowed the carriage of domestic animals for some time (dogs, cats, etc.) but with restrictions. You can put them in the hold but the safest option for your pet is for it to travel with you in the cabin. In order to do this, they must be fully vaccinated, and not weigh more than 8 kilos in their container. We recommend that you consult your airline and obtain all the necessary information, prior to making a reservation.

Country House (animal friendly)

In El Quinto, we offer weekly holiday rentals, for you to enjoy everything the island has to offer, with complete freedom and relaxation. The most important thing here is comfort and rest. Situated in the centre of the island, the house has everything you need for a comfortable stay.

Our properties are fully equipped, and designed to provide a feeling of luxury, harmony and quality. The house can sleep 4 people, with 2 double bedrooms and a shared bathroom, well-equipped kitchen, tv, living room, dining room and washing machine.

Outside you will find an open-air swimming pool, a terrace with patio furniture from where you can appreciate the volcanic scenery so typical of this region, and a barbecue to enjoy a fantastic meal in the fresh air during the day, or eat under the stars at night, in this unparalleled place that is Lanzarote. We also have a parking area for you to leave a car.

The property is surrounded by rural land of 40,000 square metres, so you are assured of peace and privacy that cannot be compared with other properties. This is as much for you as for your pets. One advantage is that there is so much space outside for your pets to enjoy, play and jump around, and indoors they can lay down or rest their heads, on a comfortable rug provided especially for them. It’s true that it’s not easy for some animals to adjust to the changes a holiday brings, but in El Quinto they can feel at home, or even better!

Activities in the area

El Quinto can be found in the village of La Vegueta, which is in the municipality of Tinajo, in the centre of Arrecife. It’s a few kilometres by car from the island’s main tourist attractions, such as the Timanfaya Natural Park, which is a ‘must’ if you visit the island.

Near the house, you can find trails leading to the volcano and beaches of Tinajo, where even during the Christmas period, you can sunbathe, swim in the waters of the Atlantic ocean, or do water sports such as surfing, diving or kitesurfing. The good thing about visiting the Canaries is that it is an Archipelago, where the climate is constant all year round.

If you prefer to be on land doing other kinds of activities, there is a great choice of walks, trekking or horse-riding routes, from which you can experience both the beauty of the volcanoes, and the green, lush countryside.

One small detail of historical interest. . The property of El Quinto where the house is situated, was an ancient farmhouse of 70,000 metres (5 Spanish “Fanegas”), and was bought for Franciso de Armas Martin and Dolores Feo Cabrera in 1939. The farmhouse was made of stone, built in the 19th Century and was reformed in the year 2000, and is where the country house stands today. A natural retreat, idea for holidays in Lanzarote, where you can be with your loved ones, without having to leave your pets behind. Everyone in your family is welcome.
