Guestbook comments from the owner
Hands down this is the best place to stay if you're going to be skiing/snowboarding in the Tres Valles area. I stayed here with a few friends. William was terrific about sharing information and explaining to us all that we needed to know about the area. This chalet has everything you need and more, we were even able to have groceries delivered to us. Also the housekeeper is such a sweetheart, she took great care of us and even prepared homecooked Chilean food. If you are not sure where to stay, look no further - because this is the place. It has a great kitchen, heated towel racks in the bathrooms, bathrooms in each room. Every bedroom has views of the beautiful mountains. I also forgot to mention that the views from the hot tub are probably some of the best in all of Chile, being able to see down to the city of Santiago at night from the deck (where the hot tub is located) is amazing. When I stayed at this chalet, I felt like I was living like "The Rich & Famous" - it just had everything that we needed and desired in a ski-chalet. It's also only a 5 minute drive to Parva - and from there you can get to Valle Nevado with an Interconnect lift ticket. I think this Chalet is the best kept secret in Chile.
My wife (Thai) and I (British) are semi retired and now divide our time between homes in Phuket, Thailand (our previous home/business base) and now, chasing the snow, in Big Sky Montana and Farellones, Chile.
After several year of searching Australia, New Zealand, Argentina and Chile for the best Southern hemisphere resort to build a vacation / retirement home (based upon quality of skiing, reliability of snow, access to shopping and services etc) we eventually decided upon Farellones at the end of the the 2001 ski season. Since Farellones filled all of our requirements, save for availability of attractive property to purchase, we bough land, hired and architect and did this the hard (but rewarding) way.
The huge open spaces, the uncrowded ski area. Total peace and relaxation. All home comforts brought to a relatively simple and underdeveloped area. The Snow. The Sun. Sitting in the hot tub watching the Condors circling on the thermals as the sun sets over Santiago.
