  • Description


    Hello! We are a family of three, Paola (me), Rocio (my daughter of 6) and Matteo (my son of 3)
    We live in Puerto Natales, the closest city to the National Park Torres del Paine. Our place is in the countryside, we have a lot of space outside, with a little forest, a vegetable garden, chickens, two dogs and a cat.
    We also share our place with an educational project.
    We are getting ready for the winter and we need some help with isolating the chicken's house, chopping wood, preparing the garden for the cold months and doing some householding stuff.
    ***You might also be interested in staying at our place from the 20th of June till de 11th of August***
    We are going to Italy for vacation and need somebody to take care of our house and our animals!
    You will enjoy the Patagonian winter in the countryside, cold but dry, hopefully with a lot of snow and beautiful red sunrises.
    Can't wait to hear from you!

    I'm italian, i speak italian, spanish, english, german and portuguese. I lived in Italy, England, Spain, Germany and Chile I think we'll have a lot to talk about; patagonia, the places you can visit here, conscious parenthood, travelling, nature..
    I'm appassionate of vegetables and I've adopted the method of "no dig" from Charles you won't be doing any heavy work because I don't touch the soil, I just put compost on it in order to saw.
    You will learn to handle with two young free souls, Rocio and Matteo, but just few hours a week...the children are in the Escuelita del Bosque in the mornings, so I need your help with them just some afternoos in the week.
