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!
Babysitting and creative play
Help around the house
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 Dowding...so 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.
Gardening, feed the animals, taking care of the children, do some maintainance work

One of my uccupations is to teach italian and german...so you will be welcome to learn with me! My dream is to learn Japanese...
You will sleep in a tent (I provide it) and in our beautiful little forrest, and use our kitchen and our bathroom. If the weather gets crazy, you can sleep inside the "Escuelita del Bosque".
You will have your weekends to do A LOT OF BEAUTIFUL THINGS! Have a look at "Torres del Paine National Park", you will find a world of possibilities to go hiking, horse riding, kayaking, paddling...I think I don't need to explain a lot, this places talks for itsself!
Limited internet access
We have pets

I mostly work from home, the only problem is the in Patagonia we don't always have a good internet connection. I share internet from my cell-phone...if you will work from my place, you should buy some chilean internet options (i can help you with that)
I am a fan of motorhomes! It is the only way of holidays I knew in Italy since I was little...we used to travell all around Europe with a Campervans, and now my children love it!
