This is the Perfect place to enjoy Snowboarding , which Ia one of my passions for more than 20 years. Also you can enjoy outdoors the rest of the year, as there is world class trekking and other outdoor activities around the area .. I consider myself very chill and open minded, i\'ve travelled a lot around the world ( more than 50 countries) and love simple and sustainable living. I get a lot of inspiration on the tiny house movement /living off the grid, and i 'm always trying to developp New projects with renewables energies and construction...

If you enjoy nature , outdoor Sports , running, fitness, Trekking, skiing , snowboarding , whatching the stars in one of the clearest skies un Chile ,this place will find you perfect..

I suggest to buy your groceries and stock yourself in Chillan, because prices are much cheaper than Las Trancas. I Go to the city about once per week and sometimes I stay there , but we can coordinate to come back together.
You also will be able to do laundry. Just bring your powder detergent.
