I'm a proactive entrepreneur, recently decided to move almost definitely to the mountains where I own an old family country house and a little hotel. The required tasks would apply mostly to the house. I love arts and crafts, and the most time I'm restoring old things: from cars and motorbikes, to musical instruments and firniture, as well as the house itself.

I can speak perfect english, whilst being argentinean so, at least for starters, workawayers can enrich their spanish if that´s one of the goals.
I love to play piano and bandoneon, Tango and argentinean folklore mostly, I think this might be interesting to share. I have 2 pianos and several other musical instruments here at the house. I also often make furniture in wood and steel, so the workawayer can learn how to use tools and create things.
We are also planning to start growing our own food, and learning about it.
We have a horse in the house as well, so horseriding and horse caring is another thing to share with people here.
And, besides all that, there is the geographic uniqueness of Copina. This is a place that has been for years used by humans as a safe place to live, full of natural resources and guarded from the cold south winds by the mountains, having pure natural streams all over the year, so the flora and fauna are really incredible, as well as the views.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
On these days I´m spending 3 weeks a month here. The daily tasks are house cleaning, grass cutting and gardening, taking care of the dogs and horses, cutting and gathering wood, cooking.
Together with that, we are permanently doing construction and maintenance on the house, since it has been abandoned for 30 years before I came here 3 years ago. Half the house is already restored and in use, but there´s still 50% more to go.
Modest but comfortable single bedroom, with shared bathroom. Bed clothing included.
The landscapes are really impressive, with mountains and waterfalls all around. The road where the house is placed is known as "The hanging bridges road" and has been the first road in Argentina to be fully designed for motor vehicles, in 1918. The path used for this road was proposed initially by the recently declared as saint, San Gabriel Brochero.
