Caserío de Mozaga

Everyone on Lanzarote knows the name Bethencourt. Because legend has it that a knight called Juan Bethencourt gave the island its current name seven centuries ago. After a long journey at sea, Juan stepped onto the island, broke his lance in the process and decided to name the island 'lanza rotaâ' (broken lance).

So when I met Maria Luisa Bethencourt, the owner of Casério de Mozaga, I told her how special it felt to meet a descendant of the famous knight. Maria burst into laughter. The story about the lance is complete nonsense and there are no knights in their family history.

What is true however, is that Maria’s family has owned the magnificent Caserio de Mozaga farm for centuries. This 18th-century finca is now a stylish hotel and houses one of Lanzarote's best restaurants. The interior features many antique pieces of furniture and combines a historic atmosphere with a contemporary look.

I spent an entire week enjoying the large garden, delicious meals at the restaurant and the gorgeous surroundings. Maria never stopped smiling whenever she saw me. I was the most gullible guest she had ever had...

Are you booking a holiday with own transportation? Then the rental car is not included in your trip and you can (at some destinations) book the rental car if you are interested. When you book your rental car, you can pick it up at your destination and drive to your accommodation yourself. The transport to the pick-up point of the rental car is arranged by you.
