  • Description

    Description

    We are "El Coya" and "Silvita". We build together a big family with 8 children and 3 grandchildren so far. Our family is the most important thing in our life and this is shown in the house where we live. An old house that lives open to whoever visits it, always with someone ready to drink some "mates", share chats and sing together playing the guitar.

    We live in Yala, our place in the world... a village only 12 km from the capital of the province San Salvador de Jujuy and on route 9 on the way to the Quebrada de Humahuaca, 20 minutes away from the beginning of the world heritage region. The town is surrounded by the green of the yungas, with hills, rivers, lagoons and a flora and fauna that allows us to live every day connected with nature.

    Some of our daughters have traveled and have had magnificent experiences from Workaway. That is why the idea of receiving people from all corners of the world to generate an exchange of cultures, knowledge and stories that allow us to continue growing and enjoying the richness of life itself.

    In the house there are always things to do... work in the garden and maintenance, construction, cleaning when we rent for tourist and much more...

    The whole family consists of "El coya" (59), "Silvita" (55), Belen (30), Manuela (29), Valentina (28), Geronimo (27), Cecilia (25), Simon (23), Gregoria (21), Teresita (20). As we said, we are a BIG family... where there is plenty of noise, laughs, abundant food, music and visits...

    Our youngest daughter, "la teresita" has an intellectual disability that demands special attention. She is not always at home, but when she shares with us it is always good to be with her and play, accompany her, be attentive to what she needs.

    We all speak Spanish and only some of our daughters and sons-in-law speak English, so it is a great challenge for those who want to improve their language skills.

    We are anxious to start with this experience and we really want to open our doors so that people from all over the world can live the experience of being part of an Argentinean family from Jujuy!

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Somos "El Coya" y "Silvita". Formamos juntos una gran familia con 8 hijos y hasta el momento 3 nietos. Nuestra familia es pilar de nuestra vida y así lo demuestra la casa donde vivimos. Una casona vieja que vive abierta a quien la visite, siempre con alguien listo para tomar unos mates, compartir charlas y cantar juntos tocando la guitarra.

    Vivimos en Yala, nuestro lugar en el mundo... un pueblo a tan solo 12 km de la capital de la provincia San Salvador de Jujuy y sobre la ruta 9 camino a la Quebrada de Humahuaca a 15 minutos del inicio de la región patrimonio de la humanidad. El pueblo se encuentra rodeado del verde de las yungas, con cerros, ríos, lagunas y una flora y fauna que nos permite vivir cada día conectados con la naturaleza.

    Algunas de nuestras hijas viajaron y han tenido experiencias magnificas a partir de Workaway. Es por eso que surge la idea de recibir personas de todos los rincones del mundo para generar un intercambio de culturas, conocimientos, historias que nos permitan seguir creciendo y disfrutando de la riqueza de la vida misma.

    En la casa siempre hay cosas para hacer... trabajos en el jardín y de mantenimiento, construcción, limpieza cuando alquilamos para turistas, trabajo en la huerta y mucho más...

    La familia completa se compone por "El coya" (59), "Silvita" (55), Belén (30), Manuela (29), Valentina (28), Gerónimo (27), Cecilia (25), Simón (23), Gregoria (21), Teresita (20). Como dijimos formamos una GRAN familia... en la que sobra el ruido, la risa, la comida abundante, la música y las visitas...

    Nuestra hija menor, "la teresita" tiene una discapacidad intelectual que demanda atención especial. Ella no se encuentra siempre en la casa, pero cuando comparte con nosotros siempre es bueno estar con ella y jugar, acompañarla, estar atento a lo que necesite.

    Todos hablamos español y solo algunas de nuestras hijas y yernos hablan Ingles, por lo que es un gran desafío para quien quiere mejorar su idioma.

    Estamos ansiosos por comenzar con esta experiencia y realmente queremos abrir nuestras puertas a que personas de todo el mundo puedan vivir la experiencia de ser parte de una familia argentina y bien jujeña!!!

    The beginning of the Quebrada de Humahuaca is only 20 minutes away. Purmamarca 30', Tilcara 40', Humauaca 1,5 hour.

    The surroundings of Yala are full of walks and places to enjoy pure nature. Many family members do sport activities in the area and it would be a pleasure to share them with you. Ideal for running, trekking and cycling lovers.

    The capital of the province San Salvador de Jujuy is only 10' away so it is always possible to share a beer, go to the theater and have a walk around the northern city.
