We have a small hostel niched in the andes of Chile, 7° region, at 4 hours from Santiago. Most of our clients come here for trekking and discover the beautifull nature of this preserved area. 5 rivers, 3 lakes, thermal baths, lots of trails from the refuge to the montains are the main atractives of the place.
I am Dimitri, Belgian, nature and travel lover, engineer in agronomy, specialized in forestry. I left Belgium at Christmas 2004 for a ride in bicycle on the world's roads, direction to Spain, north Africa, Brazil and another countries of South America, to finally decide to stay in Chile seduced by the climate, the people and the landscapes of this beautiful place , into maule valley, with rivers, forest and tricahue parrots near. My aim is not to develop a big tourism business, but to live of my passions, my personal convictions, sharing them with my visitors, at a familiar scale…There are pets and a few farm animals.
