    Description

    Holaa! thanks for stopping by our profile.
    We have a 120he land near to the Longaví's "precordillera", at the foot of the Andes mountains. We're surrounded by nature and beautiful rivers. We've always enjoyed this place, especially on holidays, but this time, we want to go a bit further and finally build a special space which allows us to make of this place our home, as well for those who came to visit us.

    We're a family which enjoys nature and simple things. Our goal: live and feel free and in peace with nature, enjoying and managing our own time.

    Our idea is also to live respectfully from the land itself growing our own food.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will have access to all these acres, so lots of treks, and spots around. During your day or times off you can walk and swim in some of the rivers near to the hut (all of them clean, and lonely) walk into the forest, go up to the Alto López mountain, chill out in the shade, mesmerize by the stars by night, enjoy movie nights! We use to watch movies or make a campfire. And of course, the activities to the river and mountain we can do it together.

    I have conversable English and my dad can understand very well.
    Vegetarians are welcome as well as vegans, you will need to teach me how to replace eggs and cheese though :)

    KIND OF HELP

    At the moment we want to start by building the house's foundations, and we're going to need someone who can prepare meals for the builders and helping around the hut and land.

    WHAT KIND OF VOLUNTEERS WE'RE LOOKING FOR
    Someone open-minded, kind, energetic and willing to exchange their knowledge and pour their abilities on this project. You aren't afraid of any insect or animals (anyway, there's no dangerous fauna here). You don't have problems staying outdoor and enjoying the calm of being away from civilization.

    WHO WILL YOU WORKING and SHARING WITH

    At the moment, me (Morgana) and Germán, my dad. And we have always friends coming and spending their holidays with us.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    A toilet and warm shower are available at our place, but we don't have dorms. We can provide you a tent with a mattress, sheets, sleeping bag, and a pillow. Everything to make you have a good night of sleep. Besides all the meals, of course.
    The place doesn't have internet, but if you get a Chilean chip from WOM or Movistar companies (I recommend WOM, they have good prices and lots of gigabits) you will be connected without a problem.
