We are a Franco-Chilean couple living at the foothill of the Malalcura Mountain, in the village of San Fabian, 5 hours south of Santiago and 1 hour up to the Andes. We recently bought a land with wonderful native forest and we are still thinking about our project. We want to build our home there and an organic vegetables garden and orchard. We are mountaineers, Kor work in tourism with local horseman and Chalo in wildlife conservation. We have a kid (Mateo) who has two years old, and understand french and spanish, ride his bike, and love the little cars. We know almost every corner in the region, and we can take you in a beautiful trip in the mountains. We love food, as good French, Kora have a magic recipes book from her grandmother with delicious dishes you can try if you work hard!!
For us it is very important to live in a natural and healthy way, we eat almost everything organic. We are not vegetarians, just because the local goats bred in the mountain are so good!!
Come and enjoy with us the nature in San Fabian!

We are agronomists, and we work on tourism with local people from the mountains. Kora is a botanist with a wide knowledge about native flora (she discovered a new genera of plant here in San Fabian!), and Chalo is a conservation biologist specialized on bats. With us you could learn about our wildlife, and meet local horseman from the Andes, go to climb or to hike the mountains surrounding the village...

We are still thinking about our project, for instance we have a lot of blackberry to cut and remove, we built a huge compost place, we built a cellar where we stock our tools and firewood. We need to open some path into the native forest, We already have three bridges to cross a little river and a dry toilet...
At this momment we are building a little house to receive YOU!! so we need help there. In 2021 we will start our house.
Around the year we need help in the garden in diferet ways (the garden is huge!!).
Autumn: Help to trim the fruit trees of the garden, and to plant new trees.
Winter: Cut some trees (exotic pines) to saw them in order to obtain wood for our house.
Spring: Take care of fruit trees, mow the grass.
