Hello, i live in a land located in Valle de Elqui, 4th Region, Chile. My family and me transformed this small vineyard into a family place to live, connected to nature. Cob houses, animals, fruit trees, and basic permaculture concepts are applied all around.
Inside the land i builded an Eco Camping, with a big "Bio-Pool" filled with river water, an "Eco-Toilet" in terrace with a composting vault below, recycle system for the garbage, and "Bio-Construction" with palm trees all around.
The surroundings are beautiful in terms of nature and sky observation, very wide. Also you can find routs to do adventure and special interests such as trekking and birdwatching, or petroglyph and geological observations, the river is right there. Next to the land are a small complex of boutique cabins and spa, and two bed and breakfast hostels...few camping around too.
Also my brother have a family size farm with a greenhous, few animals and small crops, inside the land.
Last but not least, i builded a food business inside the land too. A bio-construction equipped as a kitchen to supplies with "Organic and Vegetarian fast food" to our campers and passengers around.
Ok to summit up, many diverse activities that goes from gardening green areas, to work directly with tourist....hope you liked it!
