  • Description

    Description

    Pemehue Valley is a mountainous, rural location in the Araucanía Region, south of Chile, stretching between the Malleco National Reserve and the Renaico River, distant 80 km from Collipulli, 700 km from Santiago. Still unknown and far beyond hustle, it is bound to be a quiet touristic destiny for trekking, photographing, wildlife observation and rest.

    Weather has a four-season pattern ranging from snowy short periods to hot summerly days.

    Monse (designer, gardener, silversmith) and Niccolo (engineer, communications, photographer, carpenter) have decided two years ago to move from Santiago to Pemehue, to build their house, workshops and make a living out of craft beer production, vegetable gardening and whatever can be raised from their land.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Attending community meetings and activities will provide a vision of social needs and local culture; we are active participants in local organisations.
    Workwise, the duties to fulfil will provide understanding and practice on the specific tasks: wood construction, farming and beer production. We have been and are fairly good teachers.

    Help

    Craft beer production involving pre and post cleansing, beer cooking, bottling, labelling, packaging; orchard care and farming; woodwork; trails design and construction; general surveillance.

    Spanish is helpful for an overall cultural experience but not necessary for specific tasks since Monse and Niccolo are fluent in English, Italian and some French.

    One project is building an independent house for future collaborators.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There is a rustic therms 5 km from home; the nearest village, Amargo, is 25 km away. A local bus leaves 5:45 AM to Collipulli and returns 4:00 PM. Trekking, mountain climbing, cycling, river bathing are the main local time out activities. Several peaks and volcanos are visible from the mountain tops. Trails lead to creeks and small lakes surrounded by Araucaria forests. Eco fishing, bird watching and, if lucky, meeting the puma.
    Depending on work schedules, we could provide travelling to nearby cities and participation in beer festivals.
