Wonderful Sanctuary, Secluded, Lush River Retreat
This was our second stay in this charming, La Casita. The convenience to Santiago, immediate access to the Andes, delightful swimming pool and spa make this an ideal sanctuary. … and it is lovely, filled with upscale designer decor, and offers all the amenities of home… Our ventures to the outside world included a unique dinner and incredible new-moon tour of the sky at the nearby observatory (don’t miss it!). We drove an hour to the National Park and took the hiking trail for Monumento Natural El Morado. The views of the glacier-covered mountains and meadows were well worth the trek. Nancy made us a delicious pastel de choclo, homemade whole wheat bread, and empanadas. We enjoyed the fabulous honey from her own hives. Relaxing in the spa under the stars was a special treat!
What a wonderful home!
Thank you for the perfect setting – my family and I enjoyed the gorgeous roses in the garden, fabulous pool, bubbly hot tub, stocked kitchen, comfortable beds, clean and spacious bathrooms…I could go on and on. We had terrific vacation and enjoyed the village, the people and especially the house and the grounds. The sound of the river lulled us to sleep. We look forward to staying there again!
What a wonderful home!
I just wanted to let you know how much we loved your house. It was lovely having Nancy… she also made an amazing welcome meal for us, so we felt so taken care of… We admired the special counter tops in the kitchen and the color of the cabinets, the beds were super comfortable, and the kids (and we) really enjoyed relaxing next to the pool and the hot tub in the beautiful gardens.
TO LET YOU KNOW HOW MUCH WE LOVED YOUR HOUSE!
We loved our stay! We are visiting from Palo Alto, Ca. and brought our extended Chilean family with us to stay here. It was so peaceful and beautiful, we didn’t go anywhere else! it was like a private mini resort! We loved the pool, the architecture of the houses and we star gazed at night and were thrilled. Nancy was very nice and helpful and her BBQ was a wonderful first night meal for all of us to enjoy. ….
