  • Description


    Hola & Aloha!

    We’ve just bought this amazing finca in the north of Tenerife and are excited to welcome some helping hands in the future.
    We are a family of four (44, 35, 4 & 2 years old). And we would also be excited to host families with kids of similar ages. “It takes a village to raise a child”. So let’s become that village. ;-) But of course, we’re also open to travelers without kids.

    The idea for this project is to restore the soil using the syntropic farming method of Ernst Götsch. Planting a food forest and installing many other exciting eco-friendly solutions along the way.

    Before becoming parents, we have been living full-time on our sailboat. We started our journey in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea and made our way through Europe and along the Atlantic coast of Africa before finally sailing across the Atlantic Ocean and making our way through the Caribbean Sea to Panama. Years living on a small boat have trained us well in living with minimal comforts and adapting to nature around the clock. Living on solar and very little water consumption. We still integrate some of this now living on the land.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    If you're looking to learn more about permaculture and especially syntropic farming and to live a life more connected with nature, then this is a great opportunity for you.

    Also happy to talk about our years living on a sailboat, living a more minimalist lifestyle, and being very conscious about resources and the environment. A skill we are very happy to share. And teach more about life off-grid and the adventure of Sailing.

  • Hébergement


    For the moment we offer a spacious tent (4-meter diameter) that is set up for two people. Two single beds. Or united as one large double bed. We use a humanure composting toilet. Power comes from solar. We have running water but try to use as little as possible. The tent is set up on a nice wooden deck off the ground. So it’s very solid. Also, you will have a personal small outdoor kitchen. And an oven for inside the tent in case it gets cold. You have your own solar setup and a power station that provides electricity to charge your phones and power lights at night.

    Please write “Las Prepetas” in your message when contacting us, so that we know you have read all the information and are truly interested in getting in touch.
