  • Description


    I was born in Montevideo in 1988, I work as a musician and as a waiter, and at the moment I also build wooden houses in a working team. My idea is to continue developing new sources of autonomy, i try to care about the placeI am in, and I want to learn more about that too. I started learning to make wooden homes. I play the guitar. My job as a musician is to be able to listen better everyday. Love cooking, reading, singing, working home.

    This is a town in the beach. Really quiet and pacific. The house is located in front of the beach, and it is a fantastic place for getting closer to nature, the sea and the sport. Excellent and strategic place for fishing too. Also, the town provides free cost activities such as yoga and language teaching. There is a 100% auto sustainable school, which is the first one in South America. You have the possibility to visit it. The days and nights are really spectacular in Jaure, and the stars bright like in few places nowadays!

    I need people to look after my home and my cat, and continue the garden activities which are really basic. I am planning to create a small organic orchard as well. Windy place, maybe important detail!

    Jaure is located between Montevideo and Punta del Este. But is quite differente from them. Only about 500 people live in this town, and the main attractives are its sandy huge beach, its river that connect the sea and the Auto Sustainable School, which is the first in South America. Excellent and strategic place for fishing too. There are many interesting places to know around Jaure, Such as Minas, Punta Del Este, Piriapolis, Cerro San Antonio, Pozos Azules, Punta Colorada, Playa Verde, Cerro Pan de Azúcar, and also Rocha (Cabo Polonio, Punta Del Diablo, Valizas). You also can take a bus wich takes you to Salto and its hot natural spring waters (around 8hs bus). You just need to get to the bus stop (1km from home) and wait for the bus. On a bike you get to Piriapolis in 30 minutes. Otherwise, renting a car for one or two days may be an good Idea for touring around faster!

    It is a good oportunity for resting, listening to the sea, do some running by the seaside and read books with the fire stove on!
