  • Description


    We are a Chilean/North American family which have now moved from Santiago to Santa Cruz. Santa Cruz is a small picturesque area in the heart of the red wine valley of Colchagua. It's located 2 hours south of Santiago in the red wine valley. We have a wonderful restaurant and B&B right on the Laura Hartwig vineyard. We also have a large property for those who like to garden. There are several types of work as you can see , plus English teachers are welcome to teach our Chilean staff. We have been in the program now for almost three years and we have had a wonderful experience with our workaway kids of all ages.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Here if you don't speak spanish already you will learn. We have kids from all over and some very good friendships are made. Travellers will learn about wine as it is all around and we try to get free tours during their stay.

  • Help


    We can always use help in home, restaurant & B&B . Santa Cruz is only 2 hours south of the capital of Chile, Santiago. It's a small country town. We are in the heart of the red wine valley which means gorgeous landscaping and lots of wineries. There are the Andes to the East and Pichilemu, a beach town to the west just an hour awayl. Lots of country, clean air and outdoor sports lend this area to be a great place to live.
    We prefer a min stay of one month, longer is better. We do accept short term on special occasions.
    Our peak season is summer January, February and March but we need help all year long. Harvest time is March/April.

    What else ...

    We are a North American - Chilean family. We can always use help in our home as well as our restaurant and B&B as this is a tourist area people are always visiting from all parts of the world. We have a house close to work which allows for a private or double room. We provide two meals a day at the restaurant. So far everyone has been happy here improving their knowledge of both Spanish and wine while meeting new and interesting people.
