Beautifull adobe round house very cozy and comfortable near town center.

The space
When I came to live to San Pedro de Atacama about 20 years ago, there was no place for my personal interests’ activities. For this purpose I built this space inspired by the circular constructions of the village of Tulor since the circular shape favors and invites stillness. The energy generated in this space is special for what it was, for several years, used as a yoga center, meditation, personal growth workshops, dance ...

I always called this place La Yakana because it is the name of one of the dark constellations of the Milky Way of the Andean worldview that is associated with abundance. With a privileged view of the volcanoes, constructed with materials of the area, mud, straw, stone and its location just a few blocks from the center of the village, makes this place the ideal to spend some wonderful days.

Today we want to offer our house so that the visitors of the world can live a unique experience in San Pedro.

The house is built of adobe, which gives it unique thermal properties. The access is very easy, it is located 3 blocks from the center of San Pedro de Atacama, approximately 40 m2 built and has:

- Double bed
- Sofa bed (futon)
- Equipped kitchen (fridge, pots, plates, boiler)
- Dining for 4 people
- Bathroom with hot water
- Wifi
- A small patio where you can enjoy beautiful desert sunrises and sunset
-Parking

Soy descendiente de colonos de la región de Magallanes, donde pase mi infancia entre nieve, trineos y patinaje en hielo. Es una zona hermosa pero muy fría… Después de haber vivido en diferentes partes de Chile y otros lugares del mundo, me encanté desde hace mucho mucho tiempo de este desierto mágico, de gran belleza y riqueza histórico-cultural. Fui una de las primeras guías de turismo –aventura en la Región de Antofagasta, hace ya cerca de 30 años. Actualmente, buscando un estilo de vida más tranquilo, quiero compartir este espacio que construí hace varios años, inspirada en el estilo de construcción diseñadas y creadas por los primeros habitantes de vida sedentaria de la zona. A esta casa la llamamos La Yakana. En el sitio donde se encuentra La Yakana, vivimos en comunidad con mi familia con los que compartimos los mismos intereses, como el naturalismo, arqueología, geología y por sobretodo lograr un estilo de vida sustentable, armoniosa y coherente con el entorno. *************************** I´m a descendant of settlers from Magallanes region, where I spent my childhood among snow, sleds and ice skating. It is a beautiful place but very cold... Having lived in different parts of Chile and other places in the world, I fell in love a long long time ago with this magical desert, of great beauty and historical-cultural richness. I was one of the first tour guides in the Region of Antofagasta, about 30 years ago. Currently, looking for a more peaceful lifestyle, I want to share this space I built several years ago, inspired by the style of construction designed and created by the first inhabitants of the sedentary life of the area. We call this house La Yakana. In the piece of land where La Yakana is, I live with my family in community with whom we share the same interests, as naturalism, archeology, geology and above all to achieve a sustainable, harmonious and coherent lifestyle with the environment. *************************** Je suis la descendante des colons de la région de Magallanes, où j'ai passé mon enfance entre la neige, les traîneaux et le patin à glace. C'est une région magnifique, mais très froide ... Ayant vécu dans différents endroits au Chili et dans le monde, je suis tombée amoureuse il y a bien longtemps de ce désert magique, d'une grande beauté et d'une richesse tant historique que culturelle. J'ai été, il y a une trentaine d'années, l'un des premiers guides de tourisme / d'aventure de la région d'Antofagasta. Je suis aujourd'hui à la recherche d'un mode de vie plus tranquille et je souhaite partager cet espace que j'ai fait construire il y a des années de cela. Il est inspiré des techniques de construction, conçues et utilisées par les premiers habitants sédentaires de la région. Nous appelons cette maison La Yakana. Sur le terrain où se situe La Yakana, je vis en communauté avec ma famille. Nous partageons les mêmes centres d'intérêts tels que le naturalisme, l'archéologie, la géologie et par dessus tout une façon de vivre de manière durable, cohérente, et en harmonie avec notre environnement.
