  • Description


    Hi everyone! We are a German/French family with two 3- and 5-year-old boys and just bought a beautiful, 400 years-old and protected stone house on an ecological finca on the beautiful island of Tenerife. The finca is located on the sunny Eastern coast of the island on 300 meters next to the town of Guimar and has beautiful views on the mountains nearby and the sea. We have plenty of trees that want to be cared of and many projects waiting to be realized. Therefore we would appreciate people who are happy to build in a sustainable way.
    We offer a stay in one of our beautiful rooms against 4 hours of work, 5 days a week.
    Come and help us develop this peaceful place! We would love to share our home with you and other people form all over the world as we believe in community.
    Alice, Stefan, Jonah and Noah

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are an ecological finca and try to live as sustainable as possible. We only use natural materials to realize the reforms and little projects. We know the island, its culture and language quite well and can help you out with everything you need to make your stay unforgettable. We also love climbing and hiking and could guide you to the most beautiful places of the island.
