  • Description


    Dear Volunteers,
    We are a nice family of 4 (our children Miranda(2010) and Diego (2012), and their parents Ruth and Ansel). We live in the beautiful island of Tenerife, in the town of Los Realejos. We have a small farm where we would like to plant trees and vegetables. We live in an old Canarian house that need a restoration. We would be very interested in somebody willing to help in these two projects, as well as with some housework and teaching english/french to our kids.

    Loving animals and nature is important, as we have dogs and cats. A well educated person, with a good sense of humor, without severe life problems, who contributes to a positive atmosphere is important for us.

    People with innovative ideas, practical experience to improve the way of living and who are able to implement these ideas are welcome.

    We provide a harmonious accommodation, with a nice atmosphere and this needs a high quality contribution.
    We only want responsable people who love to keep our property with us on a high quality level. Speaking proper English is important. No-smoking, moderate alcohol, no drugs, no medication.

    We offer accommodation and the possibility of share with us some meals.
    If you want to learn Spanish we would be happy to help you with our native language.

    If you are interested, please contact us. We would be happy to receive volunteers for a period to be agreed, and that can last from several weeks to up to 1 month. Other periods could be considered in a case by case basis. Bear in mind that the period of your stay will be based, among other things, in your performance with the entrusted collaboration. On our side we will do our best to make you live a great experience in Tenerife.

    Our best wishes

    There is public transport (bus) in front of our house. The center of the town is hardly three hundred meters away. The coast is 5 km away with several beautiful beaches, specially during spring and summer. For a long periods of stay we recommend to rent a car to better discover the islands.
