  • Descripción


    Dear volunteers,

    We hope this letter finds you well and filled with excitement for new adventures! We are Family Paris, two brothers with a mix of Chilean and Dutch heritage, living between Spain and Chile. Our beautiful mother left us this incredible place where we are fulfilling her dream of creating a charming bed and breakfast or Hostel.

    We are reaching out to you with an invitation to be a part of this special project. We believe that working together and sharing experiences can create beautiful memories and lifelong connections. At our hostel, located in the enchanting village of Algarrobito, at the beginning of El Valle de Elqui, you will find a unique opportunity to contribute and be a part of something meaningful.

    The work here revolves around maintaining our vibrant garden, taking care of our beloved animals, ensuring the land is well-maintained, and keeping the swimming pool sparkling clean. Additionally, we have exciting plans for building new facilities, such as furniture and roads, which will add to the beauty of this place.

    We are enthusiastic about life, and we love to share our joy with friends, travel, and discover new places and cultures. We believe in creating a space that allows us all to relax, recharge and enjoy the simple pleasures life has to offer.

    If you are someone with a passion for gardening, carpentry, agricultural work, or painting, we would be thrilled to have you join us. Your skills and expertise will be invaluable in bringing our dreams to life. Don't worry if you're not a professional; all you need is the willingness to work with simple tools like a shovel and hammer.

    Our house is just 10 km away from La Serena city and a short 10 minute drive from the airport, making it easily accessible for you to come and be a part of our project.

    We are hoping to welcome 2 or 4 enthusiastic who want to collaborate and create something. Your time here will not only be a rewarding experience but also an opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals and be part of our growing family.

    Thank you for considering joining us in this adventure. We are excited to meet you and share unforgettable moments together. Feel free to reach out with any questions or further information.

    Hope to see you soon!

    Big hug,

    Cristian & Francis
