Hacienda Historica Marchigue
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Marchihue
Reviewed April 5, 2013

We stayed here for 4 nights in March, and it was a treat. Rooms were huge with nice modern bathrooms and the grounds were well maintained. The staff worked hard, especially to convince us they make the BEST Piscos Sours in Chile. We had a fabulous lunch one day in the arbor courtyard and also were escorted by most gracious hostess, Vivian, to the top of the nearby hills for a panamoramic view of the valley. We were also able to enjoy some time by the pool.

Very nice hotel, uniquely located in Colchagua Valley. Although the room was very basic (no safe, no airco, no television, no alarm clock, no minibar, no WiFi), the overall experience was very good. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the food is excellent, and there are lots of things to do: there is a swimming pool, ping pong tables, pool billiard, and more. WiFi is available at the reception desk only, but unfortunately it is very slow and unstable. It's good enough to check you email, but not more than that. I would definitely go back to this hotel.

The Residencia Historica is located just a few kilometers from the toy town of Marchihue and 40 minutes from the much larger Santa Cruz in Chile’s Colchagua Valley. Colchagua is one of the centers of the country’s rapidly growing wine industry and the Chilean outpost of blue chip labels such as Domaines Barons de Rothschild-Lafite. We first visited the place in 2005, when it was still a work- in- progress.

When owners/partners Vivien Jones and her partner Silvio Castelli discovered what has become the hotel six years ago, the sprawling 18th-century home had seen better days. The bones remained, but they were buried in a tangle of old eucalyptus trees. Dead fruit trees and the thorns of roses tortured the grounds like a hair suit. Undaunted, the couple pursued a vision that can only be described as a labor of love: the promising wreck received the makeover it deserved.

Now Residencia Historica is one of the top places to stay in the Colchagua Valley, the perfect launching pad for a variety of activities includes wine tours, bike and horseback riding adventures.

Vivien and Silvio are also known to host bbq around a campfire and they can customize little side trips for you and your family.

Personally, we have returned to Residencia Historica several times, once for a decade birthday blow-out, bringing friends with us from Telluirde. One couple wound up buying a nearby vineyard.

Never know what life has in store.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good.

What a great place to visit. The combination of luxury and history is unique. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. An authentic hacienda experience in the heart of wine country. The grounds are rustic, with huge eucalyptus trees and lots of bird song.

This hotel is situated well off the beaten track. A delightful old colonial house with very large
bedrooms around a courtyard and huge bathrooms. Good breakfast served at your table.
Supper at the hotel restaurant - simple good food - there is nowhere available locally to eat.
Nice swimming pool area. No internet available unless you have your own modem.
Very friendly and helpful staff.

In the countryside, a wonderful historic building with extremely nice management and very competent and attentive staff. Rooms are huge and recently refurbished. Definitely THE gate for a wine tour in Colchagua.

I would love to put a good word about Residencia Histórica de Marchihue, but my experience was never completed. I booked a weekend starting February 27, 2010... yes, the date of the earthquake in Chile. Fortunately or not, we never got to arrive due to the circumstances. I started trying to reach the Hotel shortly after to find out if they were doing okay, since Colchagua Valley was one of the big affected areas in Chile. After confirming they were fine I waited patiently for the refund of my deposit, which they agreed on our first contact after the earthquake.
Unfortunately after numerous emails, they never bothered to get back to me anymore. It has been two months now after the earthquake, which is a reasonable time to be back to normal, but no answer at all.
I thought I had to comment about this situation, so people would be very careful about the Residencia Histórica refund policy.
They never gave me the chance to discuss any delay or situation, which I'm sure I would have understood, or even the chance to rebook my old reservation.
So sad, it looked like a promising destiny to enjoy. They just didn't give me the chance to.
