  • Description

    Description

    We are Adela (Mapuche) and Helmut (Suabian) and run a small farm (25 has) 4,5 km from the paved road which leads from Temuco (1,5 hour busride) to Cunco.
    We offer accomodation, organize tours, and Chilean-German specialties to tourists mainly from september to april. Conversation here is mainly spanish, you'll be fully integrated and will improve your "chilean" -spanish knowledge. Helmut speaks with the youngsters (Andy 15 years old and Matze 20, studying in Temuco) just suabian, a german dialect, which is sometimes difficult to understand, even if you know german.
