  • Description


    We are a German couple (57/55) and have been living in Tenerife on a finca in the green north of the island since 2013.

    The finca is located about 5 minutes away from La Orotava and 10 minutes by car from Puerto de la Cruz. Beautiful beaches by the sea can be reached in 15 minutes by car or 20 minutes by bus. The next bus stop is only a 15 minute walk away.

    The 15.000 square meter large finca has not been in use for more than 25 years and we have started from the bottom, to create everything from scratch. We planted about 300 fruit trees with nearly 100 different kinds of fruit, have a vegetable and even herb garden. All trees and plants are supplied by a watering system.

    The finca is not run commercially and serves only for self-sufficiency.

    We work according to basic ecological values and are always interested in new findings. We are thinking about converting part of the finca to permaculture and are also working on the idea of aquaponics.

    New projects for 2022 include the construction of a mobile chicken pen, a bread baking oven, a solar-powered fruit dryer and a second nice Yurt for our guests, volunteers and workawayers.

    The finca is well equipped and even well organized, but we think it's more fun to work in a team and therefore we would like to invite helpings hands to our finca. We expect nothing from others that we do not do ourselves. This includes help on the finca, in the garden, in the household, maintenance of the watering system, etc..

    We live a fairly regular daily routine, do tasks together, eat together and sometimes drink a glass of red wine together in the bodega in the evening. We treat volunteers/ workawayers as friends and even take them with us for shopping or sightseeing sometimes.

    The tasks on a finca are very complex and it takes some time to understand everything. Therefore, the minimum stay for volunteers is 3 weeks.

    It is important to know that we live with three wonderful dogs (Australian Shepherds) and one cat. Volunteers should be able to handle dogs or have no fear of dogs.
