  • Description

    Description

    Hidden away in the forested foothills of the Andes, we offer guests from all over the world a year round retreat and the rare opportunity to explore an un-touched part of Chile.

    Just a 2-hour drive south of Santiago that takes you through vineyards and past remarkable views of the central Andes, this family run mountain haven caters for those in need of rest and relaxation, to the more adventurous travelers who can enjoy unique days of hiking, horse-riding and fly fishing in the unrivalled Chilean countryside.

    The lodge also has a vineyard and is located in the upper Colchagua valley, close to the most prestigious wineries in Chile.

    We are looking for people between the age of 25 and 35.

    Minimum 3 week stay

    From January we are looking for someone who can lend a hand in the cleaning room and gardening department.

    The lodge is a formal setting, and good presentation is an essential part of what we offer. We expect our helpers to shower daily and wear clean clothes when guests are in the lodge. We have a washing machine that volunteers can use.

    Staying at the lodge is not a paid holiday and we expect commitment. On the plus side, there will be some tips and stipends, there is great fishing and hiking to be had right here on the property. A good fun atmosphere in the volunteer cabin is something to look forward after volunteering

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We have some internet access at the lodge. It is a wifi connection, but quite slow. Our helpers are welcome to use it, but because in the past some of our helpers spend so much time on it, I think it is not unreasonable that we limit access to a couple of hours a day.

    The internet connection is for emails and general communication, not for downloading movies and large apps.

    We would like to challenge ourselves and you to find a means of entertaining yourselves apart from being always connected to the internet. Reading and hiking are options!

    We´re looking for helpers over the age of 23. The lodge is a formal setting, and good presentation is an essential part of what we offer.

    We have been amazed that we have had to explain to adults on repeated occasions that smelling nice and fresh and using soap and even some deodorant occasionally is part of working at an upscale lodge in wine country!
