The Téléclubs

Eat well while soaking up the local culture and play traditional games

  It’s called Teleclub because it dates back to the time when the only TV in the village was in this room. Many have annex rooms used for family parties, receptions, music, yoga and dance

Teleclubs are a real institution on the island of Lanzarote. This also exists throughout rural Spain.

You will find a sociedad in each village and they are generally run by a family who stand for a manager election every three years. So the managers are careful to offer good food and drinks enjoyed by all at reasonable prices this year. which ensures them re-election .
