  • Description

    Description

    My name is Nicola. I came from Switzerland to Gran Canaria 4 years ago. Here I first worked as a volunteer in a hostel and then as hiking guide until I decided with other friends to create a staffed mountain hut in the heights of Agaete. The building in which we established the refuge was the former village school, located at the foot of an impressive cave settlement, a place of extraordinary ethnographic interest, although still not properly known and studied. Here, in the past times, fishermen from the coast and peasants from the mountains used to barter their products. From here a vast network of trails led the travelers to every corner of the island. Due to its exceptional landscape (in front of the Tamadaba forest and ovelooking the Valle de Agaete until the sea), its natural resources, its strategic position as a door between the coast and the highest peaks (Cumbre) of Gran Canaria, it looked the perfect location for us to create a facility inspired on the mountain huts already existing in other parts of the Archipelago.

    We are driven by an idea of tourism rooted into Gran Canaria's culture, history and people, that make it possible for tourists and locals to meet, supplying travellers with cultural tools in order to understand the area they are in and orient themselves in their excursions. A form of tourism that, we believe, might also become a trigger of economic development in this rural part of northern Gran Canaria that has been increasingly losing inhabitants due to the decline of the agricultural sector.

    If you are interested in spending some time here with us, partly working and partly enjoying what the place has to offer, please contact us and tell us something about yourself and your skills. We need enthusiastic and serious (enthusiasm and reliability are far more appreciated here than skills) people willing to get involved in the project we are trying to accomplish. People who are interested in coming here have to know that we live in an isolated place, although beautiful. The fun is living the day by day life of the rural hotel, getting to know local people, having a deeper insight in Gran Canaria culture. We can also help you with your Spanish if learning Spanish is your goal.

    The main restoration works are done, but still there is a lot of things to do such as making furniture, decorating, promoting our facility on internet... Beside that, we need help with the day by day chores.

    Long term regularly registered paid job is also an option after a period of volunteering in the hotel-bar cafeteria. If you are interested, tell us before coming.
