  • Description


    Our family has been running a B&B for about eight years in one of the non-touristic hills of Valparaiso. As our children finished school in Chile and started their studies in Europe, our family team is splitting with Sandra working in Switzerland and Ernesto staying in charge of the B&B here in Valparaiso.
    Our house is a very stylish old adobe building and we tried to maintain as far as possible its particular spirit. There are a lot of trees and plants which transform this spot in a little oasis, giving our guests a chance to chill out a bit when the come back from their touristic activities.
    In the last two years we have got involved in neigboorhoud organisations, doing social work and comunity activities like a shared vegetable growing project with locals, aswell as mainting green areas in public spots in the surroundings of our house.

    You will definitly use and improve your language skills, as most of our guests during summer come from all over the world. There will be a lot of free time giving you the chance to learn about the "real" life in a latin country as our neighborhood is absolutely traditional with schools, kindergarden and a lot of little shops, giving you oportunities to interact with the "porteños". Beside that, Valparaiso as the cultural capital of Chile is a very interesting city with plenty of activities.

  • Help


    It would be wonderful when you would help out with the logistics of the B&B, as we are running the whole business just in family.
    There is a lot of maintenance to do in public green areas around our home and in the comunity vegetable garden project.
    Occasionally there will be other things like watering plants, cleaning the swimming pool or help with the shopping
    You will have for sure a lot of free time to explore the beautiful city and the surroundings.
