An extraordinary location. 4 bungalows sit high above the valley floor adjacent to a world renowned winery. Bungalows are very large with unobstructed views. Large master bath with outdoor patio. Food was Michelin star quality. The wines were included and I cannot imagine them being better. I asked for older vintages and they were made available to us. They arranged wine tours at their winery and several others. No additional cost and very private. Biking and hiking also. 4 days was not enough. Looking forward to returning.

ll I can say is wow! When you enter the gates you drive for around 5 minutes getting higher and higher driving through the extensive vineyards and finally arrive at the residence. We arrived late as we had taken a tour to the coast so we arrived at almost 9pm. The lovely Carolina escorted us to the dining terrace whilst she arranged for the luggage to be taken to our room. Dinner is a 3 course set menu with wine pairing. You are offered a pre dinner drink of your choice. The dinner was delicious. Salmon, lamb and white chocolate coconut bomb. The staff were exceptionally attentive, particularly Santiago. Our room was beautiful, with a kitchenette, walk in wardrobe, massive bathroom and gorgeous terrace looking out to vineyards and mountains. There were coffee making facilities and a stocked fridge all included. The next day we took the tour to Neyen vineyard in the morning after breakfast for a wonderful tour with a lovely young lady called Sofia. She took us into the vineyards to taste the grapes and showed us the leaves so I can now identify Malbec and Sauvignon vines. We then had a delightful lunch back at the residence and laid by the pool for a couple of hours (lots of wasps though) We then took the tour of Clos Apalta winery where we were shown the various processes and the massive wine cellar where we did the wine tasting with a very knowledgable young man. Dinner was again fabulous that evening. All of the staff we encountered were very professional and friendly. The lounge area is also gorgeous where we had a pre dinner drink. This is a fabulous place in a beautiful region - not to be missed.

We had a wonderful stay here. Extremely friendly staff helping to make the most of our stay with exceptional recommendations for lunch. Our room was spotlessly clean and well maintained with amazing views over the vineyard. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here. We used the bikes to cycle around the vineyard which was truly lovely and enjoyed a tour around the cellar. Our only criticism is with the sommelier, who insisted on forcing wine/grand mariner onto us after we had informed him we didn’t want any, commenting on food left on our plates (portions slightly too much for us - nothing bad) and pour the last dregs out of a bottle of wine instead of opening a new bottle - just to add we are not heavy drinkers, indeed we didn’t even drink the complementary wine bottles in our room. Overall an amazing stay and would highly recommend.

Our Villa Cabernet was large and welcoming. We enjoyed the fireplace each night with a cup of Nespresso. We loved the comfortable King Bed with rose petal scented sheets. Amazing terrace view from the large bathroom. Complimentary mini fridge with soft drinks and snacks and good Wi-Fi. Being the first Villa, it scarified view of the valley and Andes to be closed to the main residence. Although they could do a better job pruning more vegetation to get a better view. Personalized menus were a nice touch. At mealtimes, French sommelier was eager and proud to show off Lapostolle wines. Enjoyed breakfast next to the fireplace, mornings in Nov 2018 were chilly. All the staff was friendly and efficient. Half board 2 night rate included a tour to Clos Apalta winery and another Viña, we chose MontGras with transportation. With only 4 private villas availability is limited, book early, we could only stay 2 nights. We visited several Viñas in the area; the ones we enjoyed the most were Clos Apalta and Montes. Another activity we appreciated was Pilar Rodriguez Food and Wine Studio cooking class at Viña Viu Manent. It is important to have your own transportation. We rented a car and drove from SCL Santiago airport. Roads were very good and google maps was a great help.

It is difficult to describe Clos Apalta Residence and do it justice. Is is quite unique (there are only 4 "rooms" (which are actually stand-alone casitas), and so one feels as if the entire place exists for him/her. The attentiveness of the staff is unparalleled. And the physical surroundings are breathtaking. The food is spectacular to boot and the dining staff is happy to accommodate special requests. Special mention to Rosita, Diego and Dragon for taking especially good care of us and attending to our every need. Highly recommended.
