We are a family of 4 living on a 4-acres land, about 8 km from the center of General Alvear, a very peaceful and beautiful city. I am Davide, my wife is Silvina and we have two wonderful sons aged 8 and 9. We also have 2 dogs and a cat. We produce artesanal sweets (alfajores, chocolate nuts…) that we sell to the shops in the cities of General Alvear and San Rafael. We love getting to know new cultures and people with whom we can share new experiences, good times and laughs. We are really flexible regarding working hours and we want to make sure that people working with us feel at home and enjoy the activities they are helping us with. We are very open minded and interested in getting to know our visitors. For us, the social aspect of the exchange is very important.

This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
You will have the opportunity to improve your spanish, learn about the production of artesanal sweets and have a very good time in our company. We are very sociable people and always ready for a good laugh.
We are looking for people to help us learn english (ideally the helper(s) would be english-native speakers or have a good level of english) and interact with the children. Work will also include helping us running and maintaining the house. Helpers will be provided with food and accomodation in exchange of their help.
We can receive up to 2 people with a tent and can provide blankets and cushions if necessary. The bathroom, washing machine and kitchen are in the house and will be shared with the rest of the family. We have WIFI.
We eat together with the family, italian style food, mainly vegetarian. Sometimes, we also eat meat.
During your time off, you can visit wineries (bodegas) around, visit the Atuel Canyon, or enjoy the peaceful environment of our property. We are also famous for our great asados (BBQ).
