We spent a night at this lodge and booked the star gazing tour, which the owner and a master astronomer, Daniel, personally conducted for the three of us. It was so wonderful! His expertise and passion as well as the state of the art equipment and the world class star gazing environment combined to an unbeatable combination. The lodge itself... More

Great, quiet place for hiking horse riding or just relaxing in the hammocks. The food was really nice and the (German) staff super friendly. The room was spotless and cozy. We managed the gravel road to get there in a tiny rental car and had absolutely no problems. Would love to stay here again!!

If you look for a green, quiet and sunny place to relax close to the Andes in Chile, you have found it. One would not expect such a nice, well maintained place in a still a kind of remote valley like the Rio Hurtado valley. Take the paved road from Ovalle or the more scenic route on the dirt road...

We just spent two days at the Hacienda during the low season in August. I was nervous by the guide book's description of the road there from Vicuna but actually it wasn't that bad and the scenery was SPECTACULAR and well worth the few hair-raising inclines and turns. Added to the feeling of getting-away-from-it-all. When we got to the Hacienda... More

It takes some effort to get there. We came in from the direction of Ovalle which is a lot less windy and narrow then Vicuna. The views are amazing both on the drive in and out if you continue on to Vicuna. The place is just a perfect Chilean dude ranch with lots of hiking trails, swimming holes and horse... More

perfect place to totally rest and relax a couple of days... Old hacienda, beautifull and all very well maintained, in the beautifull semi desert Hurtado valley. Horse riding is the main destination purpose for guests. But it also has great hiking trails. If not, relax in the various places in the garden and nearby river. The rooms are very clean... More

We spent a weekend camping at the Hacienda at the start of May. It´s in a beautiful location up in the hills. Although we didn´t have a car, the bus dropped us right outside. The campsite is around a 10 minute walk from the Hacienda itself, and is is a quiet little hideaway by the river. We loved being out... More

A wonderfully relaxing place towards the top of the valley. The last 20 kms is dirt track but well worth the minor challenge to get there. Hosts very welcoming. Everything beautifully organized. Try out the hammocks in the shade, potter along the river, breakfast on the terrace, gaze at the mountains, go hiking, and wait for the flyover of parrots... More

For somewhere so remote, the hacienda is very well appointed. The rooms are quite large ( I have to disagree with a previous review there) and pleasantly if spartanly furnished. Beds are quite hard. Again, unlike a previous reviewer, I had no quarrel with the bread, although Chilean pan amasado is not exactly the best in the world. The juices... More
