  • 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 or a mongolian yurt. 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 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. Be surrounded by rescue animals, nature and peace. The area is very quiet other than our big finca family, no tourists, great for walking, hiking and climbing, scuba diving/ snorkeling and horse riding

    Help us to build up our horse and animal sanctuary. The project is pretty new, so lots of tasks to do, you don't need to be experienced with horses, we have roles for everyone.
    The more in our finca familia the better, currently we have 22, many who have been here over 1 year.
    Take a read and see what could suit you... Please read and don't apply if we cant accommodate you, its difficult to keep up with the messages so please don't make it harder as we are all very busy. If you can not stay for a minimum of 1 month also please do not apply.

    We have tried to make a more clear profile about what we need because we get so many responses and it makes it easier for me to keep up with the replies as I don't want to seem rude and ignore people as I'm pretty useless with admin ( it's why I want a admin helper)

  • Accommodation


    everywhere and anywhere, caravan, tent or unfinished cave house, cave, on the farm, you must be flexible with accommodation to stay here, as it in community living and very rustic with animals everwhere. Currently we have 16 people many of which have been here over a year, they have made themselves their own bedroom from a cave, this way we can fit more and more people. We have fantastic views and environment but the "real" 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. 😉😅
