  • Descripción


    We are 3 elderly women on a hobby "farm" (less than a hectare!) looking for help caring for our 40 animals, overlooking valleys and La Campana National Park, 2 hours from Santiago. Our common language is Spanish and we expect everyone to communicate in Spanish, at least to the best of your ability.
    We don't accept volunteers for less than 2 weeks, nor do we accept families, but if you consider you have something exceptional to offer, nothing ventured nothing gained!

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    Spanish conversation practice, collection of books in English to read, we can give you tips on where to go and what to see. Or just relax drinking a pisco sour on the terrace as you watch the beautiful sunsets.
    After coronavirus you will need to be SUPER unwavering in your refusal to go circular dancing, or you'll be out and about once or twice a week bailando danzas circulares!

    To dispel any notions of glamour, this is mainly dirty work. We have "parcela clothes" including footwear for communal use.

    Feeding and watering the animals, bathing drying and brushing dogs who can't get enough love and attention, October shearing/dagging sheep by hand.

    Daily cleaning of drinking water troughs, buckets, small containers for hens, geese, cat, dogs, sheep, goats.

    Cleaning goose pond, dog dormitories, kitty litter, stock shelter. Replenishing hen bedding. Picking up dog poo.

    Watering fruit trees and vines, gardening, odd jobs around the parcela, gathering eggs before the dogs steal them. Our animals are all pets.

    We especially want and need you if you have carpentry skills!!

    WE ONLY RECEIVE VOLUNTEERS WITH GOOD CHARACTER REFERENCES, whether from WorkAway hosts or elsewhere.

    Coronavirus requirements:
    1. a negative CPR test issued within 72 hours of arrival at our parcela
    2. masks whenever we’re within 2 metres of each other
    3. frequent use of hand gel or hand washing
    4. mask use, hand cleaning and social distancing whenever you’re away from the parcela, to protect these old ladies
    5. have travel insurance that covers covid and accidents e.g. .
    6. sorry, no television or wifi reception in your coronavirus accommodation
    7. during coronavirus we eat at a table outside the house
    8. there's a pandemic curfew in place all over Chile.

  • Alojamiento


    We love good food, but we're not good cooks (or we're lazy!!) .... you are very welcome to cook if that's your thing. We eat when we're hungry, sleep when we're tired, the only time the clock rules is when it's time to put the livestock and poultry to bed before dark. If you're allergic to cats, we're not for you.
    We have a converted container bedroom and ensuite bathroom (2 single beds) for volunteers during coronavirus.

    Algo más...

    The locals walk the 2km out to the main road to catch the bus to Valparaiso or Limache. There's very little traffic here, but some vehicles will offer pedestrians a lift. We can give you a lift to and pick you up from Peñablanca metro station when you want to go exploring eg Olmue (½ hr), Viña del Mar (½ hr), Valparaíso (¾ hr), La Campana National Park (1 hr). When you arrive and leave we'll pick you up/drop you off at the regional bus stop (2 hours to Santiago).

    We're 20km from the nearest night-life, and we don't run an all-night pick-up service! So if you're young you might feel cut-off from partying.
