  • Description

    Description

    My husband (Spanish) and me (German) have recently restored an old Canarian house into a small, family run Bed & Breakfast. The house is located in the historic centre of Buenavista del Norte, an idyllic village in the north-westerly-most point of the Island of Tenerife, Canary Islands, surrounded by nature, with mountains of more than 1.300 m and the Atlantic Ocean at 2.5 km distance.

    We are nature lovers and mountain fans who like good food, good music and the company of nice people from all over the world. Our Bed & Breakfast will be for travelers who like all kind of mountain and outdoor sports and want to rest well after an active day in the nature.

    If you like a relaxed atmosphere and a good climate during all the year, this is the right place for you. The village offers all amenities (restaurants, bars, supermarket, gym, etc.) and is well connected with the rest of the island.

    The house has two floors: We live in the upper floor and the basic floor is being converted into the Bed & Breakfast with four rooms, three bathrooms and a shared kitchen.

    Help

    We are looking for creative, technically and/or computer skilled persons who may help us with decorating our home and converting it into a Bed & Breakfast. Mainly we will need help with:

    - Maintenance works
    - Assemble furniture
    - Drilling and screwing
    - Artistic inspirations for interior decoration
    - Creating a website and Facebook

    As we both work full-day (until 15:00 pm), we cannot always bear you company, so you should be able to organize and work by your own. Or we work together on weekend and you have your days off on working days. Let´s see...

    If this sounds interesting to you and you are a nature lover, please send us a message telling us about your relevant experience.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    If you want to learn about the authentic life of Tenerife, far from mass tourism, this is an opportunity for you. We live in a small and typical village where it is easy to get in contact with locals. The atmosphere is relaxed, open-minded and international. People from all over the world have settled in this area of the island, working on ecologic farms, as street musicians, artists or craftsmen.

    What else ...

    Buenavista del Norte has about 5.000 inhabitants and is an authentic village with a relaxing atmosphere. Nevertheless, it offers a rich cultural life and there is always some interesting event to join: festivals, theatre, yoga classes, jam sessions or music concerts. The Teno Natural Park with a lot of walking paths is at a few kilometres from our house, the sea at 2.5 km. You have the possibility to do all kind of outdoor activities such as trekking, mountain biking, surfing, diving, kayak and more. The place where we live is well-connected with the rest of the island by bus.
