Lovely, Lonely Pacific Beach at Chiloe

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionWe are a multinational small Family that moved from Berlin to the South of Chile to improve our live in the wilderness of Patagonia. After many Years working and setting up projects in the european and Berlin culture/art environment, we decided to set up something new at the other side of the world.
    Now we are building some Shelters in the South of Chile to set up a sustained and ecological Eco-Tourism/Sport/Adventure/organic Farming Project.

    For now we are working on the Pacific Sea Side in the North of Chiloe and at the marvelous Lake General Carrera (Chelenko) near the jaw-dropping Marble Caves - at Puerto Tranquilo.

    Any Gender and nationality is welcome. Not welcome are racists and facists. As we have little kids here, little Families with Kids are very welcome.
    We speak Spanish, German, English and Portuguese.

  • Accommodation: The first two Locations we are working on is Chiloe near Ancud and Puerto Tranquilo.

    Chiloe: Accomodation will be in a Cabin or Caravan just a Jump of the Beach. Shower, Toilet and Electricity is available. Food is available directly from the "neighbors farm" and/or like everything else from Ancud (20min) or Quetalmahue (5min).
    Basically our Location is about 50.000m2 big and directly at the pacific coast including Beaches. Internet and Mobile Phone Signal is available. Its like living without neighbours - not counting dolphins, wales, wild goats, pudus and pinguines :)

    Pto Tranquilo: Accomodation will be in a House, Cabin or Caravan. Since Puerto Tranquilo is a Hotspot for Tourist in this area you ll all basics here in Town. To have an idea, google "marble caves patagonia". The possible acticties in this Area are countless.
  • Additional info
  • Beside of Eco-Tourism, Sport and Adventure the Project will include also organic Farming (+Permaculture). Buildings are supposed to be sustainable like the energy we use (solar and water). The Project is not made for Mass Tourism. Locals are supposed to profit as partners and to learn with this sustainable mind.

    You can spend your time at the beach (almost privat at our spot in chiloe) or have serious trekking, climbing, riding, diving and other watersports, even Ski or Snowboarding is possible. If you like an unpopulated view this should be your cup of tea, altough there is Culture and Mankind in 20 Minutes range.

    In Future this Project is to big for us only, so that good people are welcome to try a long-term job.
