  • Description

    Description

    We are a french couple and have a 300 has ranch, surrounded by a native forest, with a wonderful river, 30 mn from the ski slopes. We are living 50 km after Chillan (470 km to the south of Santiago) to the east on the way to Las Termas de Chillan. (Valle Nevado)
    To our "fundo" we work and produce following a sustainable model, and we have some business activities to Santiago too.
    We raise sheep, produce wood, we breed 3 pigs a year for our personal consumption and we grow our own organic fruit and vegetables for ourselves and our friends.
    We own 6 Peruanos de pasos horses and 5 Chilenos horses. We also have 2 dogs and 2 cats.
    All of our animals live freely in the outdoors.

    Help

    We need help in our private area, depends the seasons, gardening, harvesting, animals care, cleaning horses stables, riding Peruanos horses, there is no routine work.
    Due to numerous requests, we will give priority to people with experience in riding and stables work.
    You can smoke outside on large terraces.

    This year, unfortunately we will not be able to share all our time with the volunteers, we will be 80% of our month in Santiago, so we will need someone to care the house, the animals, riding the horses, gardening... Could be for a month or more...
