    Hello !
    Ten hectares in the middle of nowhere. Along the Cordillera de los Andes. Ideal altitude of 1200 m.
    Close to the highest summits of the Andes (Arenales for climbing, Tupungato volcano, Aconcagua ). Extraordinary views. Right in the Valle de Uco, the most famous wine and walnut producing area of Argentina.
    Pure dry air. Best mineral water. Good fruits and veggies. Best meat of the planet. 340 days of sunshine every year. No mosquitoes. And NO television :-)
    This is Gaucho land, south of the city of TUPUNGATO ( which means "el mirador de estrellas" in Quechua language)

    About us;
    We have been traveling around the planet for 20 years and love to meet young free thinking people.
    Catherine started a very small organic orchard (30 trees) . She banned pesticides so keeping the land free of weeds is a challenge.
    Richard is working with Apple Macs since 1989. He likes to learn more, so international hackers are welcome ( hacker means curious people ).
    At dinner we enjoy discussing philosophy and ideas on how to improve ourselves and consequently the world.
    We are looking for a win-win situation. We will provide hospitality to TWO young creative people at a time ( couples or friends) in exchange for help, interesting ideas, conversation and good vibes.
    IMPORTANT : ( please read carefully)
    1. We are retired people ( brains = twenty years old ) and soooooooo, we do not have a lot of work to give.
    We plan to offer ONE week to 2 young people of any Nation every month, no more :-) !
    Congrats! it's great to travel :-)
    We will reply to any inquiry asap. Sometimes the internet is not working, Telefonica is working on Fiber Optic in this area.
    2. The property and the house are full of antiques and things we collected from all around the planet. So we'd rather invite candidates sensitive to beauty, aesthetic and this kind of environment.
    Bulls in china shop stay away please :-)
    3. We ask for (extrovert) educated people who will work conscientiously, people who are proud to deliver a well done job.
    4. We will be happy to feed you with the best produce available on the local market, but you have to know that in the Argentinian countryside eating meat is a tradition. Therefore it is too complicated for us to accept candidates with special diets like Vegan.
    The only supermarket that we could compare to TraderJoe's (USA) or Mammouth ( France) is 220 km away!

    WARNING : Argentina requires visitors to be Covid vaccinated. If you wish to enter Argentina, you will need to show official proof of vaccination.

    Memento Mori.

    We travelled 20 years around this planet in an expedition vehicle.
    We are free thinking people. No fanaticism of any sort.
    We practice Taï-Chi. We are photographers, plumbers, electricians, designers, gardeners, philosophers, and... .......
    we are happy to be alive :-)

    Walks into the pure nature can be done from the property.
    As we are in Gaucho land, it is very easy to rent horses and visit the surroundings.
    Two (very good) bicycles are at your disposal.
    Climbers are close to Arenales. The international specialist Nacho Elorza is our neighbour.
    You will also experience the area which is a real paradise.
    The area is the middle of nowhere. Pure peaceful nature. Fifty neighbours only. We are far away from big cities, dancings and bars. No night life around. Forget Wall Street, please. Forget newspapers, magazines, television.
