Hello there! My name is Agustín, I am host and owner with my sister and her husband of a small bed and breakfast and farm near the Chile - Argentina border. The house is an historical building that used to be the Chilean Custom Office from 1700 to 1910. The place is beautifull, also very peaceful and quiet. We are settled in the Rio Colorado valley, 17 km from Los Andes. Also we are near some of the best vineyards of the Aconcagua Valey.
We have a 5 hectares plantation of walnuts. Horses, chickens, cats and dogs are part of the farm.
We mostly need help with maintance and gardening at the hostel. In the farm we mostly need help at our vegetable garden and feeding animals. While you are staying with us, you can stay/help at the farm and the hostel, depending where we need help and your skills.
We would appreciate a lot pro-active, extroverted, funny and comunicative people that comes to help us with this wonderfull proyect and be part of our daily lives.
