We need some help now with gardening and building a new entrance to our house, among others! Spring is beautiful and there's always lots to do around here. The new guest house is finished and super comfy and ready to receive you. We're brand new parents, little Filippa is about 2 months old. Feel free to contact us!

about three years ago we - a couple from Chile and Belgium - fell in love with the small rural village Loncotoro in the south of Chile, at only 20 km of Puerto Varas and 30 km of Puerto Montt, the gate to the Chilean Patagonia. we started renovating an abandoned property with a hundred year old house, a beautiful orchard with apple, plumb and cherry trees - a little river - and a small field to keep animals. we work hard to build a home with a great garden but we still have a lot to do - and therefore we want to call the attention of helpxing volunteers!
we used to helpx ourselves in Europe and Turkey, and we love the idea of exchanging some work to get to know a country and a personal story, while staying on a budget.
typical chores are caring for the garden, weeding, planting, piling up wood, building with wood, helping around in the house. Any skill you might have could be useful so feel free to improvise and suggest ideas!
the site has a lovely cabin where you could stay that we built ourselves with the help of volunteers last year! it`s very cosy and has a bunk bed, a fridge, a cooker, a little table, a great bathroom and wifi too
there are many chores to do in carpenteering, gardening, painting, making soap or whatever you might be good at :)
toto is an architect and is always full of energy, great ideas and good vibrations - i moved to chile about 3 years ago following him around - i`m working on a rosehip oil plan and i`m an agronomist
we`re a young couple who likes to work hard but enjoy a beer afterwards just as much
if you have the same mindset - let`s get in touch asap and exchange a good bed, food and connection to wonderful places in the south of chile for a few hours of work a day
