Stay on a genuine Mongolian Yurt in the best spot of La Palma and be part of the beginnings of an amazing musical/artistic retreat. Your task will consist of helping with the restoration of a tiny rock house and building of a couple of small simple wood edifications, occasionally small garden tending like watering. Also, there's the possibility of guest staying in the second yurt and you welcoming them if we aren't available. Amazing nature and trails.

The "finca" is located in one of the best spots of rural tourism in La Palma. There are many trails and a bus stop nearby. You can even access the beach walking (30 minutes) through beautiful nature. The place is outdoors lover's paradise, is literally like camping but with some more amenities, the yurt is 6 meters in diameter, you have an outdoor kitchen, a compost toilet, and a jungle shower. There is also a small outdoor bar, a bonfire circle and we are working on hot water and enclosed tub. The views are amazing, the sky of La Palma is simply breathtaking and there is a centenary Dragon tree in the center of it all that will certainly take over you. The community is a mixture of local islanders and travelers from all over the world, some of them who fell in love with the place and now reside here. A very eclectic mix with even more interesting stories. Every weekend there is a farmers market in the neighbor town and the food that is produced on the island is very varied and of the best quality. You will be coming back, you won't be able to help but fall in love with this place :)

We are a couple of musicians with big dreams of creating an eco-conscious artistical retreat/studio on this magical island. Jan is originally from Belgium and Yaiza is native of the Canaries, but we both have traveled extensively and lived in different places. Like us, there are lots of creative minds from all over the world that have come to live here in this rural and peaceful space. You will have the opportunity to participate in jam sessions and blend in with the local community, also there is often community celebrations and cultural events to enjoy. We are interested in making friends with the people that stay with us, ideally, this will be an experience that you would like to repeat year after year. At the moment we are constantly moving between the Finca and the other side of the island, also there might be some days of traveling with our music this summer, so while we aren't there you can enjoy having the place all for yourself, which is honestly quite amazing. While we are there we will happily share meals, get to know each other and play music around the bonfire.
