  • Description


    Hello! My name is Josefa and I live with my family in the countryside, we have a very eco-friendly way of life, we love nature and life in freedom. We are several members of this family, my dad Francisco, mom Cecilia, my hno Javier (has Down syndrome), we have our dog, cat , sheep and chickens who are an important part in our lives too !!.
    We are located in the province of Colchagua Chile VI region, on the side of the road and an hour approx. Pichilemu. It is a land located in the countryside, it is 4 minutes village peralillo.
    We are very orderly without¡r time, we like to make the most of the day, we always have many tasks to perform so we need people who can come to us to support, in exchange we offer a pleasant and welcoming atmosphere, food and lodging, we like the farm tasks we are trying to save, such as theart of the weaving loom. Also my dad handled much with the creation in the construction, took advantage of the natural resources we have and transform the look of the place.
    Thanks for reading, we await you!

    My house has a cozy atmosphere, everything is made for us, from the construction to the bread we eat. We also have our home confectionery workshop and an ecocenter, where we are currently doing forges and natural cosmetics workshops.
    We like the contact with the simple and essential in life, so if you want to come to help us welcome! We want to create new ties and teach or learn what we can from life.

Somos varios los integrantes de esta familia, mi papá Francisco, mamá Cecilia, mi hno Javier (tiene síndrome de down) , tenemos a nuestro gato, alpacas y gallinas quienes son parte importante en nuestras vidas también!!.

    Estamos ubicados en la provincia de Colchagua VI región, a un costado de la carretera y a una hora aprox. de Pichilemu. Es un terreno ubicado en el campo a 4 minutos del pueblo de peralillo.
    Somos muy ordenados con nuestros tiempos, nos gusta aprovechar al máximo el día, siempre tenemos muchas tareas que realizar por eso necesitamos gente que nos pueda venir a apoyar. Ofrecemos un ambiente grato, acogedor, alimentación y alojamiento.
    Nos gustan los oficios del campo que intentamos rescatar, como por ejemplo el tejer a telar. También mi papá se maneja mucho con la creación en la construcción. Aprovechamos al máximo los recursos naturales que tenemos y los transformamos a nuestra pinta.
    Gracias por leernos, te esperamos!

    Mi casa tiene un ambiente acogedor, todo está hecho por nosotros , desde la construcción hasta el pan que comemos. También tenemos nuestro taller de confecciones en casa y un ecocentro, donde actualmente estamos realizando talleres de forjas y cosmética natural.

    We have an ecocenter and a cafeteria with everything recycled, in a house that we have in the same land. Also here hands would come super, especially if they know some art or like permaculture even better.
