A surprising stay in this nice cabins ... We had a very nice time with Adela and Helmut, the cabins are really first class and the national-park was impressing as well.

Description - Hostel

About 5 km from the paved road to National-Parc Conguillio, surrounded of nature is living the Genkinger-Calfín-family.
On a farm of 25 has Adela (mapuche) and Helmut (suabian) are running a small farm, with beef-cattle, ducks, chicken and honey-bees. They are expecting visitors, who would like to live in their guesthouse nearby or who want to try in the Hosteria (small restaurant) a suabian piece of cake or a piece of "Hefezopf" (suabian sweet yeast-bread) with a cup of coffee and relax on the chilean-contryside.

Adela prepares with a lot of love Chilean and German specialities. Combining the two cultures there are always new creations to try, which are converting ordinary meals in delicious eating-experiences.
Adela is selling almost everything you may need, many neighbours are using her stock of goods as well.

The guesthouse with a marvellous view to the snow-capped volcano Llaima is destinated from single-travellers to whole families. It is built almost entirely of wood. On the roof, a solar-panel is taking care of the ecological-preparation of the hot water. When the sun is covered by clouds and it should be necessary, there is enough energy in the gas-tank, which is providing the central-heating, which is creating a warm atmosphere even in cold winter-days, using modern technology. You will feel like in German hotel looking in the comfortable bath-rooms. There are a big sink, water-saving-wall-mounted toilet and a shower-corner with a radiator, which dries the towels as well. In every apartment is built in a small kitchen.
