    Description

    I’m Antoine, canadien from Quebec, and living in chile with my chilien family. My wife Yeatte from Pucon, and my two kids Eliot (7 years old) and Mawida (3 years old).

    Our FAMILY CAMPSITE is located in the heart of the National Park Huerquehue, by Lago Tinquilco.
    Constantly improving the place, we have several projects going on…. HELP IS ALWAYS WELCOME AND VERY MUCH APPRECIATED!!

    The place also have a small lodge, a shack with a big shared room, meals services (breakfast & dinner) with amazing chilien home cooking food, campsite area, a very nice pic-nic area with playground for kids, and some water sports going on in our private beach such us (kayak, stand-up paddle, a fishing boat...).

    Located at the beginning of amazing trails (Los Lagos, San Sebastian and the waterfalls Nido de Aguila and Trufulco) it's the favorite place for tourists to immerse themselves in nature.

    We are working hard to become self-sufficient; we have limited electricity with solar panels, drinking water coming from the Huerquehue Park, we also manage our own waste by recycling (sorting out, collection and compost) and transfer of guests with non-motor boat.

    We have very good energy with a dynamic family atmosphere, and at the end of the day, we gather with the guests around a bonfire.

    -------------ESPAÑOL------------------------------------------
    Soy Antoine, canadiense de Quebec y vivo con mi familia chilena, mi mujer Yeatte que es originaria de Pucon, y mis hijos Eliot (7 años) y Mawida (3 años).

    Nuestro CAMPING FAMILIAR se encuentra en pleno corazón del Parque Nacional Huerquehue, al orilla del Lago Tinquilco.
    Seguimos con varios proyectos en curso y... UNA MANO EXTRA ES SIEMPRE BIENVENIDA!!!

    El lugar también cuenta con una pequeña cabaña, un albergue con dormitorios compartidos, servicio de comidas caseras (desayunos, cenas y pan casero), zonas de acampada y pic-nic muy cuidado, ademas de actividades acuáticas en la zona de nuestra playa (Kayak, Stand-up Paddle, bote de pesca).

    Ubicado al principio de los impresionantes senderos (Los Lagos, San Sebastian y las cascadas Nido de Aguila y Trufulco) es el lugar preferido por los turistas para desconectar y sumergirse en plena naturaleza. Bien comunicado con buses directos a Pucón cada 3h diariamente.

    Estamos trabajando mucho para poder llegar a ser autosustentables, tenemos electricidad limitada con paneles solares, agua potable descendiente del mismo Parque Huerquehue, gestionamos nosotros mismos nuestros desechos via reciclaje (clasificación, recolección y compost) y traslado de huéspedes con embarcaciones sin motor.

    Tenemos muy buena energía, ambiente familiar muy dinámico, y al final de día compartimos con los huéspedes experiencias alrededor de una linda fogata.
