  • Description

    Description

    We are a couple living in Chile for 5 years with a small cabin with river frontage surrounded by native forest. Not quite off-the-grid, but that is the direction we would like to go. The area is a popular tourist destination near Puerto Varas with volcanoes, rivers, and lakes, but the property is quiet and secluded.

    We are looking for help to build cabins, decks, trails, etc. to start a small scale tourism project and bakery with a park-like setting.

    The property is a short walk to bus access and all the activities in the area.
