    Description

    We are a family of five, that moved from the big city (santiago) to the valley looking for a more quiet and country life.
    Here with us are our little children Isidora (almost 7) and our baby boy Mikel (4), both are lovely. Ignacio (21), game lover, lives and study at Viña del Mar.

    We live in a house with an extra room to host someone who is willing to play, care and teach English to our children. It is also appreciated if can give us an extra hand at home.
    We would love to have someone around (preferably female, regardless of age) who loves kids and enjoy playing with them and teaching english at the same time.

    You will be able to live on the country side at the Aconcagua Valley, wich is well known because of wineyards, the big mountain and agricultural activities. It is one hour from Santiago (the capital) and one hour and a half to the beach (Viña Del Mar, Valparaiso).
    We will be happy to help you out if you want to improve your Spanish and know about chilean culture and of course take you to the beautiful places of central Chile some weekends.
    We are also working in a social entrepreuner program (in its design stage), so if you enjoy social entrepreneur it will be great share ideas.
    We also are starting a small natural soap business, so if you want to learn or bring knowledge will be lovely.

    If you love kids and country life, we will love to welcome you to our family!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We will share our chilean culture as a family, in daily life, cooking, history of the valley and its historical places, as well as language practice. We also like to make daily trips to other cities on weekends, in summer the prefered one is the coast.
    If you enjoy cycling, it is perfect for you, since we have couple of bicycles and several routes to know the valley on weekends (we plan cycling route experiences).

    We are currently working in a social entrepreuner program to teach entrepreneurial skill to housewifes and young people of the valley, we are also starting a small natural soap business (from home). So if some of the topics interests you, it will be a wonderfull experience

    There are wineyards , natural places to know and also thermal spas.
    If you like casino, we also have one 10 minutes by car.
