  • Description


    Hello from Valle Simpson! We are a small family operation located just outside of Valle Simpson, about a 45 minute drive to Coyhaique. My husband(48) and I (38) have two small boys (5,6) who love to play trains, legos, go down the slide, all sorts of other stuff. We are originally from Montana in the United States, English is our primary language, but we also speak pretty fluent Spanglish.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live a simple life and are constantly trying to incorporate nature into making our life easier. We installed a solar power unit last year, and we are still learning new things about a solar power system almost everyday. We get our drinking water from a point spring uphill of our house and have harnessed the power of gravity to provide our water pressure. When we can, we are trying to simplify our life and minimize our carbon footprint and we would love to share the lessons and knowledge we have accumulated through trail and error.

  • Help


    We mainly just need help with the boys so that we can get to our other projects. There is an endless list of things to do that never seems to get shorter, only longer. From road maintenance to the endless battle with the Russian thistle, we have our hands full! Our boys are very sweet and for the most part easy to handle. They are energetic, and they just want to play
