Modern and sophisticated, the Santiago sits amidst a striking backdrop of snow-capped Andean peaks – a neat blend of parks and plazas, early-20th-Century architecture, and clean-lined glass and steel. Two nights in a charming boutique hotel in the bohemian quarter is about right to sample the city’s restaurants, markets, and museums.
Chile’s extraordinary geography means that in Santiago one is rarely far from the action: the ski slopes are 50kms to the east, the Pacific only 100kms to the west and vineyards stretch for miles in every direction. The Casablanca and Colchagua Valleys are home to some of Chile’s finest vintages and two stunning boutique wineries. Our guests can also enjoy private tastings and overnights at the top winery in the country, usually off-limits to visitors.
