, We are a retired couple living in San Rafael with a beautiful property that has a park of magnificent pine trees and around 1000 olive trees. This time of year it is reasonably cool but can still involve working in the sun.
We have travelled to many countries before settling here, we know how exciting it can be to explore new places and taste food that is prepared by local people.
The accommodation offered is a comfortable bed with full meals to be shared in their preparation and consumption.
Please don't leave it to the last minute to apply as we have plenty of requests, also try to stand by the dates agreed as there are workers arriving and leaving around the times arranged with you.
We tend to eat spicy food and although I cook some nice vegetarian meals there are days we prepare meat and fish if you have a problem with any of this then please don't apply.

Where we live is about 12km from the town center, there is a sparse bus service 3 or 4 times a day and we tend to visit the shops two to three times a week, alternatively we can lend you two bicycles to explore, most roads here are flat and it takes 40 minutes to cycle into the town.

We have pets
We are smokers
San Rafael is the place that Argentines living in Buenos Aires escape to every year to get out of the city and experience fresh country air, Valle Grande is as spectacular as the grand Canyon in parts and you can go white water rafting, zip lining and visit some of the leading wine producing Bodegas of the province of Mendoza.
Maximum 4-5 hours a day, 5 days a week
