  • Description


    Hidden away in the forested foothills of the Andes, this beautiful property has been virtually abandoned for the last decade.

    Now myself and the owners want to make the orchard flourish, grow vegetables, raise chickens and ducks, make cider, and all using sustainable organic techniques and permaculture.

    The property is a place where you can also enjoy unique days of hiking and fly fishing in the unrivalled Chilean countryside.

    The land is located close to Tumuñan Lodge which has a vineyard and is located in the upper Colchagua valley, close to the most prestigious wineries in Chile.

    We are looking for dynamic people between the age of 25 and 35. We need setting up a vegetable garden, constructing fences, possibly raising ducks and chicken, cutting back weeds.

    We are looking for someone to spend a whole season here, maybe longer!

    There is a cabin, 3 bedrooms, a beautiful river and waterfall where you can swim and fish.

    There is no electricity, it's wild and solitary (40 minute walk through a forest to the nearest bus stop.)

    If you looking for peace and quiet in beautiful surroundings, this might be the place for you.
