Standing under a tall palm tree, you have a very special view of the valley and the mountains. The clear mountain air allows faraway views.
The Hacienda cooking style assures culinary delights. Our cook Maria uses only fresh and untreated ingredients. After dinner in front of the fireplace, we will sit by the silken light of the moon in the garden enjoying a glass of Chilean red wine and end this day with interesting stories. And this wildly romantic part of the country holds a lot of exciting stories!
