We have a Ranch. in the rolling hills of uruguay. Three hours away from montevideo and 40 minutes from nearest town. In cerró colorado .
It is open and working as a "estancia turistica" on the weekends generally. Sometimes weekdays too .
Jaime lives here mainly from Thursday to Sunday . And takes care of the garden and general mantainance.
We have paying guests coming usually on the weekends as well as cleaning staff and a cook to cater for these. During the week its very quiet and painting jobs or gardening is done and needed. Raking leaves . Tending garden and vegetable garden . Painting walls and details . And other jobs around the house .
there is a nice lake to swim, and horses available to ride on your time off if u have experience
We are 30 km from the nearest town! So it important to bring foodstuffs or other things u need during your stay .
It’s a veru isolated place
Perfect for people who like quiet and nature .
DIY and building projects
Help with Eco Projects
here you can have contact with local people who visit the farm weekends and employees from nearby town.
Mainly experiencing basic kind of life in Uruguay surrounded by nature and peace.
We need general help around the place. That could be gardening, cleaning leaves off the pool.
Painting some walls. Is always needed . Helping around in the vegetable patch or the orchard.
Or any other project happening at the moment.
As for working with tourists it not really needed unless you like it or would like to have the experience. Jobs to be done with them would be to take them for a ride on the horses or on the 4x4 jeep mainly. Because we have staff for cleaning and cooking.
there is two rooms with a shared bathroom available .
The place is very quiet, and is perfect for relaxing on free time. Like going for walks. Riding the horses (if you are confortable with that).
swimming in the lake, or riding the kayaks.
Doing some art, dancing, whatever you feel like doing is welcome here.
The main thing to know is that its far from town and there is no much socializing other than with the people who are at the place at any given moment. Could be many or only one.
