  • Description


    Hello, we are Andrea, Millaray and Lalo, a family that after living in different places we decided to live in Patagonia, 20 km from Coyhaique, on the way to El Fraile Ski Center. We are developing different field and construction tasks.
    We have three dogs Chapati, Rimaya and Nanga Parbat, three cats Micaela, Tarro and Pacho, and a hen house with 11 hens and 1 rooster. We still have a lot of work in our small 10,000 m2 field.
    The place is wonderful, surrounded by native trees, at the foot of a small mountain range called the divisadero cord and very close to a waterfall. It is possible to hike through the sector, bike and ski in winter season.
    We have electricity through solar panels and a water system by ram pump.
    If you come from a warm country we warn you that the climate in this sector of Patagonia is cold and windy. Jobs are always outside the home.

    Hola somos Andrea, Millaray y Lalo, una familia que después de vivir en diferentes lugares decidimos vivir en Patagonia a 20 km de Coyhaique, camino al Centro de Esquí El Fraile. Estamos desarrollando diferentes labores de campo y construcción.
    Tenemos tres perros Chapati, Rimaya y Nanga Parbat, tres gatos Micaela, Tarro y Pacho, y un gallinero con 11 gallinas y 1 gallo. Aún tenemos mucho trabajo en nuestro pequeño campo de 10.000 m2.
    El lugar es maravilloso, rodeado de árboles nativos, a los pies de una pequeña cordillera llamada cordón divisadero y muy cerca una cascada. ES posible realizar caminatas por el sector, bicicleta y esquí en temporada de invierno.
    Tenemos electricidad por paneles solares y un sistema de agua por bomba de ariete.
    Si vienes de un país cálido te avisamos que el clima en este sector de la Patagonia es frio y con viento. Los trabajos son siempre fuera de casa.
