    Dear friends !

    My name is Andy of Polish origin, with cosmopolitan soul, currently living in Tenerife, one of the Canary Islands, Spain. I'm in my mid 40s and I have recently engaged in an exciting, yet challenging idea.
    For that reason I am seeking volunteers to support me in a rewarding project to revitalize a 150-year-old house located in the center of Icod de Los Vinos, in the north-west of Tenerife. This project offers a unique opportunity to contribute to the preservation of cultural heritage while enjoying the sunny landscapes of Tenerife.

    The project aims to restore this historic house, preserving its original charm and character while adapting it to modern living standards. We require volunteers with a range of skills and expertise to assist in various aspects of the renovation process.

    Whether you are experienced in carpentry, painting, plumbing, , or simply have a passion for preserving historical architecture, we welcome your participation.

    I will be happy to welcome individuals who possess the required skills or have a keen interest in learning new ones.

    Join me for an unforgettable adventure in the sunny heart of Tenerife! Tenerife is the largest and most visited of the Canary Islands, it is known for its beautiful beaches, the imposing volcano Teide and its wonderful natural sceneries.

    Send a message outlining your skills and abilities to engage in the project.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I offer you the possibility of living an experience in a heavenly place. Learn English, Polish or Spanish and find out about the culture and way of life of the people who live in the Canary Islands.

    During your stay, I will be happy to help you discover the beauty of Tenerife, if you would like to go on trips together.

    If you are interested in spending some time here, partly working and partly enjoying what the place has to offer, please contact me and tell me something about yourself.

    Icod de Los Vinos is one of the most interesting towns on the island, with some nice bars, museums of the banana and mariposario - the butterfly park. Drago Milenario is the main attraction here with its monumental 1000-year old tree and a beautiful park!
    From here you will get the closest and most amazing view to Mt El Teide. Rising 7,500 m above the ocean floor, it is regarded as the world's third-tallest volcanic structure and stands in a spectacular environment.
