Denis Schimmeyer (Director): I came from North Germany, where I was born 1978, grew up and led a varied life. After years of pedagogical work in various social areas, such as group leaders in facilities for people with disabilities, I worked in addiction and mental health services before switching to industry. In the last few years in Germany, as an authorized signatory, I primarily worked administrative things, sales and management in a major vehicle recycling company.
Since my childhood I have seen much of the world and came regularly to the Canary Islands. Gran Canaria has grown to my heart. Gran Canaria combines the advantages and beauty of all the Canary Islands for me and I feel at home here. After my wife Melanie and I have spent more and more time of the year here, the decision finally came to stay.
Melanie Schimmeyer (Secretary): (wife and good soul in the company) I was born 1978 and grew up in North Germany. For many years I have been coming to Gran Canaria, more and more regularly, until finally the decision fell entirely here. In Germany, I learned the profession of orthopedic technician and was in one comapany until my emigration. Now, I do not want to give up this job and run an orthopedic workshop in Las Palmas. Since my youth, I've been involved, for people and the environment. I am at home on Gran Canaria and love this island.
Incidentally, I accompany my husband (depending on time and opportunity) from time to time on the excursions and support him in the planning and organization. Also for our guests, I am always happy to be there as a contact person.
Due to the love for the island, the people and the nature, in view of the various tourist offers, the idea of alternativitiy was born. We want to create unforgettable holiday experiences and to bring the unique island in its diversity closer to our guests - just as it is and how the people live here
