    Eco Village in Tunquen, one of the most breathtaking and relatively untouched coastal villages of Chile.

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will be working and sharing with two other expert carpenters working at the project, they are brothers from the south of Chile. They are joyful and easygoing, always open to share their knowledge in partake in challenges.
    A great chance for you to exchange experience in building/construction, carpenting and plumbing. Also a great way to practice your Spanish and learn the Chilean modisms.

    Since the property also hosts the workshop of the sculptor, you would also be invited to participate in his creative processes of making big and small sculpture from stone, metal and ceramics.
    This way you would get a chance to share and learn directly from Palolo Valdes, a world-renowned chilean sculptor.

    looking for a master carpenter/builder to participate in the construction of an Eco Village in Tunquen, a beautiful serene beach community located within an hour and a half from Santiago.

    Gotta love working with your hands (well, also with you head and with your heart too), this is a place for you. The owner is an artist and he takes a particular approach to all the details of the projects.
    Initiative and suggestions are more than welcome

    Also, the maestros who work here are also very enthusiastic and very skilled too; they are very much into tackling any challlenge that comes there way and are really keen on discovering way to sort things out, so you would have lots of chances to share and to exchange knowledge.
