    Description

    Hello!

    We are a young artist family from Germany starting a new way of life in Chile/ Patagonia. We have a beautiful, huge piece of land surrounded with old native forest, crystal clear springs and rivers, waterfalls and the stunning mountain scenery of Patagonia.

    Mostly we need help maintaining the garden, making firewood and also we will soon need help with painting the house and installing a part of the terrace.
    As we are still in the process of building our house we are also very interested to take carpenters or people that are experienced in working with wood for making some furniture and some interior.

    Also we are always interested to take people that can teach playing the harp or like to introduce some instruments to the girls.

    We are looking for open minded, motivated people which enjoy sharing work with us and like the outdoors.

    We have a little cabaña where you are very welcome to stay. So you will have your own kitchen and shower. The toilett is a dry toilett outside.
    We prepare lunch for you on the working days and sometimes we will have dinner together.
    You work 5 days in a row and than have 2 days of, where you should care for your own food.

    You can learn how to live a simple life close to nature, how to maintain a campo and a garden, how to ride or how to catch fish in the nearby river. Depending on your job there will be Spanish, English and German spoken and we are happy to help you with learning these languages.
    If there is some spare time we can also teach you how to juggle.

    We work every working day around 5 hours in a project, like painting the house, doing firewood etc. Beside that we appreciate it a lot if you also give us a hand around the kitchen and in the garden (watering some plants) during the day.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Although we are in the middle of nowhere, you can enjoy many outdoor activities just in front of our door: fishing in the river, horseback riding, rock climbing ( you have to bring your equipment), hiking in the mountains and showering under the waterfall. Friends of us are organizing boat trips and rafting on the river not far from our land. But most of all this area is a location for nature lovers because you find a lot of untouched and unexplored nature to relax.
