    About Us:
    We're a couple, Paolo being a 'mixed salat' from Argentina/Spain/Germany, and Anne from the Netherlands, along with our cat. We're passionate about travel, ecology, ecological permaculture, various sports, hiking, beach life, cooking, BBQ (have to stay true to your roots ;) ), and art. Our journey led us to the beautiful island of Tenerife, where we decided to settle down and start our own eco-finca. Anne has had many wonderful Workaway experiences while backpacking in Asia and South America, and we want to offer travelers the same enriching experience we've had.

    Work and Accommodation:
    We're looking for some hands-on help with either construction or gardening, based on what you're into and what skills you bring. If construction's your thing, you might be doing woodworking, plastering, painting, or building a small wall. For gardening, tasks could include setting up an automatic watering system, building a chicken shed, or taking care of our fruit trees like avocados, pomegranates, lemons, oranges, and almonds.

    All this will be on a beautiful rural 4-bedroom finca located in the charming town of Icod de los Vinos in Tenerife, where it feels like spring all year round.

    In exchange for around 3 hours of work per day, 5 days a week, we offer you a private room. We're looking for someone who can commit for approximately 2-3 weeks, although an extension is possible if you're interested. We expect you to be responsible and flexible when needed.

    Special Opportunity for European University Students:
    If you're an enrolled student at a European university participating in the Erasmus+ program, we're open to discussing an internship program focused on either ecological permaculture or construction, based on your interests and study program. As part of this program, you may be eligible for compensation of around €600.

    If our eco-finca and way of life resonate with you, we'd love to have you join us on this beautiful island and contribute to the growth of our project. To make sure you actually read this before applying, please include the word 'Amparito' in your message.

    Feel free to reach out with any questions or expressions of interest. We look forward to welcoming you at our finca in Icod, Tenerife.

    When you're not working, you'll have plenty of opportunities to explore the beauty of Tenerife. You can take leisurely strolls through the beautiful town of Icod de los Vinos, known for its historic architecture, charming streets, and, of course, the famous ancient Drago Tree. The nearby beaches provide a perfect setting for relaxing, swimming, and water sports.

    Tenerife offers numerous hiking trails with stunning views, including the nearby Teide National Park, where you can hike around the majestic Mount Teide, Spain's highest peak. For those interested in culture and history, there are museums, churches, and local markets to discover. We're happy to take you on some hikes too :).

    Getting around Tenerife is convenient with the public transportation system of buses, and luckily we're at walking distance from the Icod de los Vinos main bus station. The public transport here can bring you to most places, it just requires some patience. We can help you navigate the local transport options and provide information on the best ways to reach your desired destinations. If you prefer more freedom, renting a car is also an option.
