Historic hotel opens in Lanzarote

Casa de Hilario – Lanzarote ´s newest, luxury rural hotel – has just opened its doors.   And comes replete with a historic pedigree that few other establishments on the island can match. This chic, boutique hotel in the heart of Lanzarote ´s unique volcanic countryside is the latest offering from the owners of the stylish Casona de Yaiza.    It features seven well furnished, individually styled rooms that combine classic rural charm with ultra modern facilities – such as flat screen TVs, internet access and sumptuous bathrobes. The hotel building dates back to the 18th century and was once home to a hermit called Hilario – who was the only human left residing in the area after the cataclysmic volcanic eruptions that engulfed the island from 1730 to 1736.   Today, guests can enjoy panoramic views of the epicenter of these eruptions (now Lanzarote ´s number one tourist attraction) from their hotel balconies.
