DO YOU WANT TO LIVE IN PARADISE?
Posted by: ammachi ()

If you are ready for a change of life or you are just looking for an already fully
grown fruit forest, in the wonderfull climate of Tenerife, all treated ecological for
generations, in the most outstanding natural surroundings... we love to make it available.

WHO ARE WE?

We are a married couple, Yasmín and Michael, taking care of this beautiful land
(rented but it would be also possible to buy it), in which we found a old house that we have
spent 1,5years renovating in a creative and ecological way (see pictures).
We also have done our best to help the fruit trees to be more healthy and prepare a
nice space for growing vegetables.
We came here with the aspiration to bring into reality the base for an Eco-village
project, for which we have created and nourish a Non Profit Organization called “The
School of Creative Conciousness”.

THE LAND

Situated in a quiet area in the North-West of Tenerife, the land counts with
4 hectares on the side of a mountain, very fertile and with abondance of water.
It is situated in a canyon that we call our little Machu Pichu. Half of a hectare is cultivated
in terraces with 30 different varieties of fruit trees (avocados, mangos, oranges, lemons,
limes, kakis, chirimoyas, macadamias, almonds, figs, starfruits, litchies, guaves, strawberry
guaves, pitangas, apples, rose-apples, pears, plums, pomegranates, papayas, nísperos, treetomatos,
one madroño, etc) and fruit bearing bushes like physalis, blackberrys... Everything
treated organically and with love. The rest of the land is a hipericum forest and other
autoctonus species.
It has also a big water reservoir (shared with two neighbouring lands) which with a
bit of cleaning can be also be used for swimming.

COMMUNICATIONS

Communications are good -it is only 5 minutes by car from the village and 10 minutes
to the sea- and it has easy access to materials, events, shops... The village is really
charming and people in general are very friendly.
All around there are already quite a few ecological farms (some also for sale), and
lovely alternative people from around the world living in the area.
THE HOUSE
The house is very artistic. It has two rooms (already there when we arrived), and a
nice artistic bathroom with bath, a kitchen and dinning area plus studio space and a
covered terrace that we made ourselves. There is also a big old room that needs renovation
and that we use as storage room for tools and materials.
The whole place is provided with free electricity in exchange of a water-pipe
crossing the land.

THE POTENCIAL

The place has enormous potential, also in ways to make a living: the area is specially
suitable for eco-turism (many beautiful walks depart from near the land), or as a healing
and retreat centre, as way as selling the fruits and vegetables either on local markets or
for exportation (already the production of avocados can be a good income and as they are so
many varieties, we have avocados nearly all year around!)
As the farm is in protected area, for the possibility of building other structures is
needed to prepare an educational, scientific or social project and present it to the local
authorities (which are very open and friendly).
WHY WE LEAVE
Although we feel tremendous Love and Gratitude for this place, in which we have
learned so much and that we have come to call “The Sanctuary of Health”, we have decided
to let our work and the land in other loving and caring hands who can give continuity to the
vision creatively and in their own unique way, to help blossom and maintain this place as
well as fully enjoy it.
The reason we love to leave, is because we are also ready for a change and we love to
explore already existing Ecovillages in our mind-frame and spirit.

CONDITIONS OF THE LAND

The land is rented to a nice elder couple who live in an ashram in India with their
children and grandchildren. We have good relationship with them and we are happy to
support them in their lives. They would be ready to sell but they are also happy renting it
indefinitely.
We would like to find people who “rise” in love with the land like we did, want to take
care of it, and are happy to find an arrangement either for a period (or we would prefer
long term), in which our work will be also valued so we can continue to do our work and
service also elsewhere.
We could let the whole place with all kinds of tools and equipement: like wash-machine,
water-heater, gardening tools, wood working tools, furniture, tents, and a lovely
conservatory, kitchen equipement, wooden stove, electric deshumidifier and even
inclusively our lovely car (a Renault Kangoo in very good condition).

CONTACT US

For anybody interested we can send more pictures and videos and you can contact us
by phone on 0034 634 50 28 72 or 0034 654 579 155
We speak English, Spanish, French, German, Portuguese.
Hoping beautiful people can join the vision and can
continue to take care of this truly special and magical
land!

Blessing to all,
Michael & Yasmín

Hi!
I am very interested in your post.
I am a raw foodist and always try to keep a small garden wherever I have lived.
I've worked on a medicinal herb farm when I was twenty and am always learning about plants.
I've worked as a seamstress in varying degrees for the past 10 years.
I am a 29 year old female and yearn to live closer to the Earth.
I have a 4 year old daughter and I think it would be great for her (and me) to live and grow in such an environment.
How much is the rent?
How were you able to generate income to sustain yourselves?
I would love to see pictures.
Thank you for sharing how much you love this place in your post.
Peace and Love,
Jennifer Duvall

Namaste Yasmin and Michael, please send me an email when you see my message, I'd like to communicate with you regarding this opportunity. It is Z. Jai Ma! Also for anyone else reading this, my desire is to be living as a member of an Intentional Community, or small Community business, where my daily contribution is to help in gardening, growing sprouts and wheat grass, and also with the earth, growing vegetables, fruit and nut trees. Additionally, I'd like to help in preparing living and raw food dishes with the harvest. Please contact me if you have an interest in what I have to offer. Thanks.

Love,
Prism
