  • Description


    We are a couple living in Patagonia in the Los Lagos region near the city of Puerto Montt, in the south of Chile, we have a three hectare farm that needs maintenance.
    We are located in the Polincay valley at the foot of the Calbuco volcano in the direction of Lake Chapo, one of the most beautiful lakes in the region. The Chamiza River that descends from the volcano passes through our property which allows to enjoy its waters on hot days.
    Our house has several rooms for lodging and private hygienic services for each inhabitant, we will share the space as a family with each visitor, in the same way the feeding will be in a family environment.
    We have a poultry raising project, some pets that are part of the family, although they only live outside the house.
