I had a fantastic couple of weeks stay at Chile Wild. They made me feel very welcome straight away and I are and slept extremely comfortably for the entire time I was there! The work was really enjoyable, building a new house for the characteristic billy goat Gary. It was wonderful to be working outside in the fresh mountain air and in such a beautiful landscape. Thank you Lavinia and Fernando!!!!
