  • Description

    Description

    We are a young family that wants to promote sustainable tourism on the Island of Tenerife. Our long-term goal is to establish an NGO (non-profit non-governmental organization) to share our values with the people of the world, but for now we are just a family and whoever comes to help us with our project becomes a part of our extended family.

    We live between the mountains and the ocean in a cosy finca that includes our house and around 5000 meters of land in a very beautiful part of Teneriffe, on which we have an ecological garden, a chicken coop, some camper vans and caravans, and a workshop. We are surrounded by nature, real Canarian agriculture, fruit trees (avocados, mangos, papayas, bananas, oranges and so on), 360 degrees panoramic views of the ocean (12 minutes by bike to the nearest beach) and amazing volcanic mountains.


    Somos una asociación que queremos fomentar un turismo sostenible dentro de la Isla de Tene
    rife, vivimos en familia y quien venga a ayudarnos con nuestro proyecto queremos que sea uno más de ella. Disponemos de una casa con unos 5000 metros de terreno, en la cual tenemos un huerto ecológico, gallinero, furgonetas camperizadas , caravanas ,las cuales alquilamos ,un taller.....estamos empezando a crear un espacio común y al mismo tiempo individual para nuestros futuros visitantes, vivimos rodeados de naturaleza , agricultura canaria , arboles frutales y con unas vistas al mar (12 minutos en bicicleta) y a la montaña.
