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 on a vineyard. We also have a large property for those who like to garden. There are several types of help as you can see , plus English teachers are welcome to teach our Chilean staff. We have been in the program now for almost 7 years and we have had a wonderful experience with our Workawayers of all ages. (21-65)

Santa Cruz is small town in the red wine valley of Chile. Beautiful scenery and country living. You will definitely learn about wine as it’s all around and we organize tours to the vineyards. Sta Cruz has 5 museums as well! Pichlemu beach is just an hour away as well as other sights to see. If you don't speak Spanish already you will learn. We have kids from all over and some very good friendships are made.
Tasks are mainly with tourists for translating , basic organization and keeping things clean, teaching English to the staff, gardening and laundry.
We have a Chilean staff of 15 for cooking and waiting on tables. Workaways will not help in those areas. Lunch and dinner provided.
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 welcome extra hands all year long. Harvest time is March/April and it’s autumn and a beautiful time to visit .

We are a North American - Chilean family. We can always use help in our home as well as our restaurant .As this is a tourist area people are always visiting from all parts of the world. We have a house closeby 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 for cultural exchange.
