  • Description


    We are a family with 2 children of 9 and 12 years. We live on a farm that is 15 minutes from San Rafael, in the country side. We have lots of animals, a cat, dogs, chickens, horses and a bio pig farm. The property also includes lots of fruit trees which were recently planted. We are non-smokers, but smoking outside is no problem.

    As farmers it is most important for us to share our passion for the land, animals, and our projects, like becoming a more selfsustainable farm. We are looking for individuals or couples who would be interested in integrating into our family life for the length of their stay, helping us with the finca, our children, the animals, the house, specific projects, etc. That all depends on the season, what you like to do, and what needs to be done. We offer a private bedroom in our house, bathroom is shared, as are all meals.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are originaly from Europe and have lived here now for a long time, and can try to explain life here. We are happy to teach you about farm life here in San Rafael.

  • Help


    As is on all farms, we need help around the grounds, gardening, watering, cleaning (including the house). There are also light tasks in the fruit trees, depending on the season.
    Our children are old enough to care for themselves, but we need a presence of an adult when we need to leave for a short time. We are very easy going and are happy for you to set your own scheduale for the most part, occasionally there will be time-sensitive jobs.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The finca is located about 15 minutes from the town center on paved roads (there is 3 km of dirt road). One of us travels to and from town regularly, and can give you lifts. There is a bus service available that stops down the road. There are plenty of hicking possibilities close by, or day trips into the canyons, mountains, or towns.

    We are busy professionals but also enjoy quiet and relaxed times. There are no bars or clubs nearby, thus, if a lively nightlife is something you need, then this is not the place for you.
