About William Pinsent HAUK

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.

William Pinsent HAUK purchased this apartment in 2002

Why William Pinsent HAUK chose 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.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

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.

Exatamente conforme as fotos!! Excelente!!!

  • 5 of 5

Fiquei muito surpreso com o espaço exatamente preservado conforme as fotos. O Sr. Sak, quem nos recebeu, foi atencioso e estava sempre a disposição quando precisamos. Curtimos muito a lareira todos as noites e a família até se aventurou num banho de jacuzzi aquecida. Tudo esteve funcionando full time! Nós todos gostamos muito e recomendamos! Pena não ter conhecido o Sr. William, que falei apenas pela internet via e-mail, gostaria de agradece-lo pessoalmente.

Owner's Response: Not being a Portuguese reader, I had to have Google translate this for me - "I was very surprised with the space preserved exactly as the photos. Mr. Sak, who received us was attentive and was always available when we need to. Much we enjoyed the fireplace every night and the family even ventured a heated Jacuzzi bath. Everything was working full time! We all enjoyed and recommend! Pena had not known Mr. William, who spoke only on the internet via e-mail, would like to thank him personally." Normally I am there all the ski season to host my guests, but this year I had to return to Thailand early due to some personal reasons. I do hope that you will return next year and we can meet then.

Owner's Response: Jose, thanks for the review. For the benefit of myself and others who do not read Portuguese, I asked Google to translate this and they said ... We'll be back ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ We were four couples and two teenagers. The house is a lot of good. Comfortable, beautiful and very well located. The view is fantastic. We love to enjoy the fireplace and balcony on after ski. We'll be back sure !! As a point of clarity here, Jose fitted 10 guests by taking on 2 extra beds ( for last minute additions on his trip). Normally accommodation is suggested for 8 persons.

The only place to stay when skiing the Andes

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here with our three children for a week in August 2011 and our experience could not have been better! The photos accurately reflect the pristine and impeccably furnished space. Everything in the unit is high quality and brand-new. And most importantly there is lots of space. The owner could not have been more helpful and accommodating. And, of course, the skiing at is incredible!

The ski lifts at Farellones are five minutes walk away – those at La Parva and El Colorado a five minute drive ( but this is not necessary as all the resorts interconnect)

Don't forget to ask William to point out the direct ski trail to access Farellones - once learnt we never used the car again.

We would definitely rent this space again.

There is ample lift serviced terrain in the 3 resorts, but if you feel the need to venture further, Helli ski services are available from La Parva and Valle Nevado. In summer mountain walking climbing or horse riding are available. We'll be happy to provide further details and make the necessary arrangements.

Unlike the ski base villages at La Parva and El Colorado, which empty out in the summer months, Farellones has many year round residents and the generally green and tree filled gardens make it a pleasure to visit in the summer.
