Timanfaya Casa Rural

I had arrived on the Canary island of Lanzarote that morning; What makes this island so special is its volcanic landscape. That is why I decided to visit Timanfaya national park. A good friend had told me that this remarkable place was created by a massive volcanic eruption in the eighteenth century. I had to see this with my own eyes...

It wasn’t long before I was on a bus, driving through a desolate lava landscape. What a bizarre sight! I looked out the window and saw a landscape full of craters, rocks, large flats of black solidified lava and volcanic ash;I have yet to visit the moon, but I imagine it looks something like this. Like being in a completely different world.

After exploring Timanfaya, I drove my car to the town of Yaiza. The bus driver had recommended a typical Canarian holiday location there. After a ten-minute drive, I arrived at Timanfaya Casa Rural, in the centre of Yaiza. Two people approached as I parked the car. I waved. ‘Marco and Silvia?’, I asked cheerfully. "Yes", they answered in unison. Marco took my suitcase and we walked over to the hotel.

During the grand tour, Marco and Silvia told me how they and their daughter Carlotta had moved to Lanzarote from Rome in 2014. Silvia told me that Marco is a gardening wizard, providing her with fresh products to prepare delicious breakfast for her guests every day. Silvia then pointed to a black mountain in front of us. The black sandy soil makes for a stunning contrast with the white-green cottages at Timanfaya Casa Rural. I spend a couple of minutes soaking up the view. Yes, Lanzarote really feels like being on the moon!
