It is a special place. As the oldest inhabited house in the south of the island, it was built by one of the first noble families that came to the Canaries in support of the Spanish Crown. A local historian has published books on the home and its links to the history of Tenerife.
We have bought and lovingly restored a part of Casa Altavista, and now we are planning the renovation of the next phase.
This wing of the house will be used for two purposes: one, as a base for groups of students of all ages coming on science field trips to Tenerife, organised by GeoTenerife.
The other, is to run it as the base for our foundation, Fundación Altavista, offering free respite holidays to families in need (from the UK and Tenerife) experiencing cancer among a family member.
