Although the cabin we stayed in for four nights suited us perfectly, it was the frequency and reliability of the local bus service that ensured our stay was five star. Even the mainline coach from Puerto Varas, over 300 km. distant, knew where to stop; the local buses stopped at the bottom of Monte Verde's steep drive.
So, for us, not having a car was no obstacle to enjoying a scenic stay overlooking Lago Villarrica. Both the cabin and the extensive grounds, complete with swimming pool, were very well maintained; it is evident that much pride is taken in keeping the garden in good condition.
The facilities inside the cabin were fine and we were impressed that the fire was reset each morning and the ample woodpile outside the front door was replenished, complete with kindling and paper.
The hospitality of Monte Verde was evident when we were allowed to overstay our booking for a few hours as we we were not due to leave Pucon until early evening; we did not relish decamping there in the wet and wind. The extension was much appreciated.More
