Area:About us, we are a young couple that runs an Eco Tourism Hotel outside of Olmue (Chile), in the ecologically protected zone of Quebrada Alvarado. The hotel nicely combines nature with comfort, being surrounded by mountains and offering the following services for our guests: •Swimming pool •Sauna •Outside Jacuzzi •Tennis •Disco Nights •Restaurant – Bar •Game Nights •Karaoke Nights •Tracking expeditions •Yoga •Horse riding expeditions Olmue is located in the 5 region of Chile, in the center of the country and has a very nice climate (Warm in summer and not to cold in winter). Its located approximately 1 hour from Santiago (Our Capital), 40 minutes from Viña del Mar (Beach city) or 50 minutes from Valparaiso (was declared a World heritage a couple of years ago). We also have our own Beer Brewery, so if you are interested in the brewery process we could show you how it works and we have a lot of beer :) In your free time you can obviously use the installations of the Hotel (Swimming pool, sauna, Disco, etc) The restaurant of the hotel provides the alimentation service for our regular staff and you are welcome to join them and get to know them better. We will also provide a special kitchen for the workawayers where you can prepare your own meal or a snack when the restaurant is closed. You will need to take care of transportation to Chile (Santiago) and of getting an international insurance. Sometimes we can arrange a pick up at the airport, depending on the hour and date of your arrival. If we cannot pick you up, we will provide instructions on how to get to our Hotel by bus (not that hard) We are very flexible about the duration of your stay, since we need people for all the seasons. So if we get along fine, there is no problem with you staying here for a long time and if you just want to stay 1 months, that’s fine with us to. It´s also important that you have an outgoing personality, that you are fun to be with and that you are able to create a good mood, so that if there are only a few customers, they still have a good time at our hotel (There are also going to be other work and travelers… so it´s not just you, but it’s important that you as a team are able to accomplish this) We speak English, German and obviously Spanish (We have had people who don’t speak Spanish, and it’s no problem, but obviously it’s a bit easier to communicate with our regular staff if you do have some basic knowledge of the language).
