“Nice place great view”
Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

Stayed here in the little town of Farellones with great views and wonderful service.
We booked the best room 'Condor' on the top floor which had great views out of huge floor to ceiling windows covering two windows and a huge shared balcony to watch the sun setting over far off Santiago which is clearly visable on days when Santiago pollution allows.
The staff/Owners were very accomodating and allowed us to add an extra bed to the room for our teenage son as the place was fully booked for our 6 days there.
Breakfast & dinners were included. Breakfast was fairly basic, continental style but dinners elaborate and well done. Though there is no menu if you have a dislike for something in particular (seafood/fish in my case) they are quick to offer alternatives. The meals were always top notch and the desserts exquisite.
Service is great though not much English is spoken by the staff but the owners Anna & Christophe are always on hand and they speak English.
Our only trouble was getting steady hot water for the showers but this was their first season to have the too floor open as it was new construction so I am sure this will be rectified soon.
There is no free transport to the Valle Nevado ski area but they were able to recommend a driver. There was however free transport to La Parva, El Colorado & Farellones ski areas via the ever friendly staff driver Oscar.
Farellones ski area is even walkable from the hotel and there you can buy tickets to El Colorado, here you can take the T-bar up the hill to reach the bottom of those slopes and ski down at the end of the day, fantastic!

We stayed at this hotel for three days during our ski trip. The hotel is located in Farellones, which is a small mountain town with beautiful landscapes. The place is very peaceful and you can rest with nice views after skiing all day. Farellones ski centre is at walking distance although it can be rather challenging because of the steepness of the street, but it can be done. El Colorado which is a bigger ski centre is only 15 minutes away by car. La Parva is also close, but we didn’t go there. They have free transportation to these ski centres, or you can go to Valle Nevado paying an extra fee. Their van leaves in the morning at 9 and 10, and comes back at 5. However, if they can they are flexible. We were at the ski centre and the weather was so harsh we wanted to leave, and they had no problem picking us up earlier.

The rooms are really nice, with good heating and excellent bed and shower. The view from our room in the first floor was very nice. We felt very comfortable there. Breakfast and dinner are included, and we had great meals. Breakfast is very complete, and dinner was excellent, with varied and tasty food, well presented and good service. The dining room is very cosy, and has a nice view of the mountain. There is also a room to leave your shoes and ski boots which I found very convenient.

We had a great stay at La Cornisa, we enjoyed skiing and going back to such a nice place to rest, hang out and have great food.

This hotel was very quaint and different from any other place we stayed at while on our 2-week vacation in Chile. The room was a little small, with just a bed and some storage space, but it was very cozy. The pillows and mattresses were top notch, and I slept the best out of my entire trip here at this hotel.

Oscar helped us with our bags, and is very nice and out-going. I initially intended to rent our equipment from the ski resort, but he took us to a place that was three times CHEAPER than what the resort would have charged us! He tries to learn your language, and will greet you in the morning with it.

Most of the staff do not speak English, but if you know a little Spanish, you can easily get by using hand gestures and grunts!

The meals were AMAZING. VERY VERY high quality dinners that were included in the stay. Every dinner was a three course meal, and it was definitely gourmet cooking at it's finest. I didn't get a clear look in the kitchen, but I assume they have professional cooks there to make us dinner! Some of the food included: Asparagus Bisque, Grilled Salmon & Pasta in a cream sauce, and Slow-roasted Lamb. All the desserts were made from scratch too!

I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

My wife and I stayed at the La Cornisa for 7 nights as part of our South American honeymoon. The rooms where clean and the staff were very helpful- especially English-Spanish translating and organizing transportation. The food was also sensational! We would definitely recommend staying here if your interested in experiencing some of the local Chilean ski culture.

Great little bunk-house/inn in Farellones near the 3 main Ski centers there (La Parva, Valle Nevado, and El Colorado). Christophe is the french-canadian proprietor who is very friendly, helpful and informative.
He will take you in his van up to any of those ski centers and pick you up at the end of the day at no extra charge!
The rooms are small, no frills, bunk bed style but have the basics, and after a long day of skiing and sightseeing the room is just a place to crash.
There is a common living room area with fireplace, a small bar, and TV, sofas and there is a mud room to keep your ski equipment and wet clothes.
There is a chef on site who cooks breakfast and dinner every day. Great food! I was completely impressed by all the meals! I would suggest buying wine in Santiago and bringing it with you there's no corkage fee and it's much cheaper at a supermarket in the big city.

I have travelled the world and stayed in all types of accommodation and can say that this was one of the best experiences I have ever had. The only negative is the price as it is quite expensive but you need to put that into context as you are minutes from the ski slopes and nothing is cheap on these trips. However, I have never felt for at ease at paying so much money. The house is spotless and you are made to feel very welcome right from the start. The views from our window were just breath taking and and the food served in the evenings just what you are looking for after a great day of skiing. The location is perfect just minutes from La Parva and El Colorado resort and travel is included to and from by the owner free of charge. Valle Nevado is barely 30 mins away and although more expensive than the first two it is well worth a visit for its natural beauty. Really did not feel like leaving after five great nights this place just feels like your own home.
Can not recommend enough!!
