A holistic ecological concept

Finca El Quinto is a family-run ecological Finca with individually designed vacation homes in the north of Tenerife. Three generations live and work together on the farm. The Finca has its beginnings in 1986 and is now run in the second generation. It is one of the few estates in the Canary Islands that, in addition to providing vacation homes, also engages in organic farming. The formerly fallow land has been transformed step by step into a natural oasis of tranquility with traditional Canarian houses. The apartments and houses are located between orange trees, banana palms and many other exotic plants and trees. Besides the relaxation in the unique nature, Finca El Quinto is, because of its unique location, the perfect starting point for numerous leisure and sports activities, such as hiking, climbing, surfing, paragliding on Tenerife.

Slow Tourism

 

We are dedicated to being as gentle as possible with nature. Not only in the cultivation of the land, but also in the construction of the houses, care was taken to handle all resources in a sustainable and ecological way. It is important to us to use water, electricity etc. as responsibly as possible – all houses have a sophisticated sewage system to recycle this important resource.

Self-sufficiency of the finca is our big goal. Our treasure is the spring located on the finca. Its wonderful life-giving water, which flows from a mountain tunnel more than three kilometers deep, has made our finca flourish for decades. This spring water also fills our two swimming pools as well as the water tanks used to irrigate the Finca.

The sense of community and the involvement of the local culture and collectivity are an important part of our philosophy. Thus, in addition to the many antiques, you will find works by local artists in the cottages. We have selected the activities we offer based on environmentally friendly aspects. Furthermore, we only work with passionate and regional providers to promote the local tourism industry.

During a guided tour of the grounds, we will gladly explain the organic farming of oranges, bananas, avocados, lemons, papayas, guayavos, chirimoya, herbs of all kinds and vegetables depending on the season. Of course, our guests can also purchase the fruits of the Finca. On the farm live chickens and black pigs. Therefore, our guests enjoy fresh eggs and can feed the organic waste to our pigs.

Regenerative agriculture

 

One of the main principles of the Finca is to allow guests to reconnect with a natural environment. Guests experience and are actively involved in the processes of natural farming. The “Farm To Table” concept and the independent harvesting of the organic products, besides the unique freshness and quality of the food, also provides the inspiration to follow new and sustainable paths at home..
