11th Sept 2010. Just back from a week in Casa del Rio. The house is lovely, with everything you might want, some nice unusual touches, and a great view from the terrace.
Adrian is the perfect host, full of information and enthusiasm for the island. His taxi service to and from the airport makes the journey so simple.
Graciosa is beautiful, unsophisticated but friendly, and very laid-back. Playa de las Conchas is one of our favourite beaches anywhere - and we've seen a few!

Just back fro the Island - fab, peaceful holiday. Adrian & Ann very accommodating with transport too & from Orzola. Watertaxi the highlight of the hol - far preferable to the ferry! Studio was perfect and very cosy. A little understanding of Spanish very handy but locals very pleasant & try very hard to understand English. Beaches wonderfully quiet. Food fairly basic in restaurants but supermarkets, greengrocers & bakery well stocked - just takes a little hunting around to find some of them. Will definitely revisit asap! :)

What a great time we had in Graciosa! Adrian was the perfect 'host' and met us from the Airport and took us to Graciosa and showed us round the spacious and immaculate accommodation. Nothing was too much trouble for him and we really appreciated his help

Graciosa is a great place to relax and even though the island is small, we did not run out of things to do and see. We managed to eat out in a different cafe/restaurant each night. The local 'supermarkets' are well stocked so you could dine in if you wanted to.

The highlight of our trip was a full day Katamaran trip from Graciosa to another island with the opportunity to swim and snorkel. We also hired bikes which allowed us to explore other parts of the island - well worth it!

Overall we had a great time and are looking forward to our next visit

We had a very relaxed time at the house which was cool, bright and comfortable. The terrace has a fantastic view of the cliffs on Lanzarote, we had most of our meals up there and the night sky was spectacular.
La Graciosa really is un-spoilt, we walked across the centre of the island to the pristine Playa de las Conchas and were lucky to have the beach to ourselves for a couple of hours before a few people arrived on bikes - amazing to step onto a beach where there are no other footprints! We continued walking around the east coast back to town (2-3hrs), it can get really hot so take plenty of water and sun screen.
Caleta del Sebo is small and very un-touristy with just a few restaurants and a couple of cafes and bars, great fresh fish at the Meson La Tierra. The supermarkets are well stocked for self catering too.
A great place to relax and really get away from it all.

We stayed at Villa Del Rio on La Graciosa.

This is a great house and we had a very nice time on this chilled out island.

There are a number of beaches on the island and the house is very close to a small beach beside a slip way opposite the social club which was great for us as we have a 2 (almost) year old.
Also the very natural Playa De Las Conchas on the other side of the island is truly magnificent.

The owner of the house, Adrian, is a very nice and helpful guy and genuinely interested that visitors make the most of their stay in his house on La Graciosa.
He met us at the airport when we arrived and brought us to his house and he also met us off the ferry on the return journey at Orzola and drove us to the airport this was really worthwhile.

We tried 3 of the 6 restaurants on the island all of which were average to good. Buying some fish to cook at home is also a good option.

We would definitely return. 4 out of 5 stars for the house.

Regards

Barry

My time on La Graciosa was wonderful from start to finish. Adrian and Ann were incredibly kind and helpful and made me feel so welcome from the moment I arrived. The studio was ideal; cosy, perfectly located and beautifully decorated. For those who like the quieter alternative - away from the tourist trail, you are richly rewarded and greeted with a rare unspoilt beauty; space, stunning beaches/scenery/flora and fauna and amazing food - the authentic Canarian experience! There is plenty to do for those who like to keep active - from walking, climbing and cycling to diving, surfing and kayaking. It was an unforgettable holiday for all the right reasons and I very much hope to return.

La Graciosa is a great island for those that want peace and quiet. We had a great time, very relaxing, a fantastic solution to the winter blues. The studio apartment was great for the 2 of us. I am so glad to have met Adrian, from meeting us at the airport to introducing us to the island he was the perfect host. I will be recommending a visit to everyone I know.
