Four luxury casitas or small houses perch on a hillside overlooking the vineyards of the Apalta Valley in this elegant Relais and Chateaux property. Connected by stone walkways, each spacious villa comes equipped with complimentary Wi-Fi and mini-bar, sumptuous bedding and a private terrace with panoramic views that wrap around the front of each casita. The grand lobby is traditional in its style and full of local Chilean flavour, featuring comfortable lounges alongside selection of fascinating antiques, whilst the small adjoining kitchen meticulously prepares a personalised menu to pair with local wines for every meal. Stays last a minimum of two nights and include use of the pool, a visit to the vineyards, use of bikes and walking poles; the full board package includes various other activities and longer stays include additional visits to other vineyards in the region. The hotel is situated 2.5 hours from Santiago and 15 minutes from Santa Cruz.
