  • Description

    Description

    We are an non profit Association developing an educational project , in a rural area of Güimar valley, in Tenerife island. The coast is about 6 km away. The farm has terraces towards a ravine, facing the south, very sunny , with a nice views of the sea and the mountain, near a small village called Arafo, in a quiet place.

    Until now, we have been doing infrastructure works, repairing walls, setting up a new watering system, and a solar plant to produce electricity and hot water. We also have planted 150 fruit trees , and other ornamental plants.

    We have as accommodation four wooden cottages, three Yurts and a Dome, for an initial set up. We have also built a room for group activities, dining room and a kitchen. We receive groups for personal growth activities during the weekend or longer stays as a retreat.

    Somos una Asociación sin Ánimo de lucro, desarrollando un proyecto educativo, en una zona rural en el Valle de Güimar en la isla de Tenerife. La distancia a la costa es de unos 6 km. Es una finca aterrazada hacia un barranco, con orientación sur, muy soleada, con unas vistas muy bonitas del mar y de la montaña, cerca del pueblo de Arafo en un lugar tranquilo.

    Hasta ahora hemos hecho el trabajo de infraestructuras, arreglando muros , instalando un sistema de riego, y un equipo solar para producción de agua caliente y electricidad. Se ha realizado la plantación de 150 árboles subtropicales, y otras plantas ornamentales.

    Se dispone de cuatro cabañas de madera, tres Yurtas y un Domo, como forma de alojamiento para grupos. También se ha construido un aula para cursos, comedor y cocina. Habitualmente vienen grupos a hacer cursos de crecimiento personal, y retiros de grupos de diversos tipos, los fines de semana o semanas completas .

    What else ...

    We are close to a bus stop communicating hourly with the island's capital Santa Cruz de Tenerife and from there across the island. The distance to the coast is about 6 km, and there is also possibility of excursions walking towards the near mountains.

    Within the estate, we do not take alcoholic beverages and do not allow the use of illegal substances. We recommend not smoking, and smoking is only possible outside. Our diet is mainly vegetarian with some fish. For longer stays, we ask for two weeks trial. We can communicate in English, but will be a plus to Speak Spanish or the interest on learning it.

    Estamos cerca de una parada de autobús que comunica cada hora con la capital de la isla Santa Cruz de Tenerife y desde allí con toda la isla. La distancia a la costa es de unos 6 km, y también hay posibilidad de excursiones a pie hacia la montaña.

    Dentro de la finca no tomamos bebidas alcohólicas y no permitimos el consumo de sustancias ilegales. Recomendamos no fumar, y sólo es posible fumar en sitios destinados. Nuestra dieta es básicamente vegetariana con algo de pescado. Para estancias largas, se necesitan 2 semanas de prueba. Podemos hablar inglés o francés, pero sería un aspecto favorable hablar Español o el interés en aprenderlo.
