We are a family of three, myself, my sister and his husband. We run a small bed and breakfast and farm near the Chile - Argentina border. The house is an historical building that used to be the Chilean Custom Office from 1700 to 1910. The place is beautifull, also very peaceful and quiet. We have a good seasson of guest during winter because of the Portillo Ski Center and El Arpa Ski Center in San Esteban (40 min distance from our place). Also we are near some of the best vineyards of the Aconcagua Valey.
Also we have a 5 hectares plantation of walnuts. Horses, chickens, cats and dogs are part of the farm.
We need help with task in the farm (harvesting walnuts, garden cleaning and maintance) Also we need help running the hostel`s tasks like cleaning and maintance.
While you are staying with us, you can stay/help at the farm and the hostel, depending where we need help and your skills.

You will share a room depending on how many people its working with us, we have a very nice room with 1 bunk bed and nice view to the garden. We have a pool with natural water from the mountain, big common spaces and a walnut forest.
Of course, we provide food and sticking to the 25-hours working week. We eat beaf/chicken/vegetables as well. One of us is vegetarian so if you are you can share food with him. The volunteering hours can be agreed on and is very flexible.
Our home is perfect if you are looking for a peaceful and quiet place. It takes 20 to arrive to the nearest town (Los Andes) and 1:30 hrs to Santiago.
During your time off you can use our premises (pool table, swimming pool and all the common spaces in the house)
In the summer months, the place is good for swimming, fishing, cycling, hiking, relaxing.
