  • Description


    We are a young couple with a dream to create a self sufficient eco horse and animal sactuary. We are now a registered charity

    We want to rehabilitate as many horses as possible and offer holidays on our farm in a cave house. Our passion is to rescue all the animals (so far. Pigs, dogs, cats, tortoises, Guinea pigs, rabbits, hedgehogs, chickens, goats, horses) we can, but the project is self funded and costing us much more than we thought so some building help would be amazing!

    The fantastic all round weather of Tenerife, stay on a horse farm with fantastic views of the sea and the mountains. only 5 minutes from the sea. ride the horses, be surrounded by rescue animals, nature and peace. The area is very quiet, no tourists, great for walking, hiking and climbing, scuba diving/ snorkeling and horse riding

  • Help


    Help us to build up our horse and animal sanctuary. The project is very new, so lots of work to do, lots that are not skilled but all physical labour. We need general building such as help for moving stones for walls, moving rubbish and clearing, building, digging holes, power tools etc. Also sometimes easier jobs such as Painting horse fences, and cleaning animals. We want some help to make it eco as well if anyone has these skills.

    We look for 3 different type of people/jobs...

    *always* Looking for builders or any one with any skills as we are starting to do some "fun jobs" and finishing touches so we always need new skills to learn from. Especially with skills in building in natural ways.

    We are also looking for experienced horse riders to help take out occasional excursions, school some horses and light excercise for the older or sick horses. Also help to bring on young horses.

    We are also looking for someone to help out with gardening, cooking, cleaning.

    Please note we are on the island of tenerife, not mainland Spain even though the map suggest we are there.

    Thank you.

  • Accommodation


    caravan, tent or unfinished cave house on the farm, fantastic views and environment but the bedrooms are sometimes shared due to the amount of work aways we have. We are like a big family so it has never been a problem so far. we live near by in a house which is used for showers and having big family meals sometimes 😉😅

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are in a great location for buses, but we also have a car that is legal for anyone to borrow with a driving license over 25. Only a few minutes to walk to the beach, also i can give horse riding lessons, or we can take the horses out. Always places to see in tenerife and the weather is always great
