    Description

    Dear volunteer people,

    We are family Paris, we are two brother half Chilean half Dutch, we live between Spain and Chile.
    Our mother left us this beautiful place where we are building her dream, maintaining the garden, watching the animals, taking care of the maintenance of the land, cleaning the swimming pool, and building new houses, furniture and roads.
    We love to enjoy life, share with friends, travelling, getting to know new people and places, of course, giving ourselves the space to chill and relax.
    Our house is located in the charming village of Algarrobito, at the beginning of El Valle de Elqui.10 km from La Serena city and 5 minutes from the airport.

    Our intention is to have 1 or 2 persons who will collaborate in our project. We are looking for enthusiastic people; professionals or technicians, like carpenters, agricultural technicians and theatre people. Especially carpenters and painters who can help us, you only need to be able to work with a shovel, hammer and so on.

    hope to see you soon,

    Cristian & Francis
