'A One of a Kind Vacation'

Some comments from our guests:: Villa Tunquen, the beach-front villa , has a sister. Villa Puertazul is actually two beautiful houses, tucked into the mountainous Chilean village of San Alfonso. This is Cajon del Maipo, a Garden of Eden for adventure travelers.

The villas sit on the banks of River Maipo, a Class 4 rafting river, for those whitewater aficionados out there. If you prefer your adrenaline served chilled, you can head to the neighboring Lagunillas Ski Center, or arrange to be dropped by helicopter at some of the more remote ski spots. Nearby are thermal baths, glacial lakes and volcanoes to trek to –

Owner Judy also offers Andes tours on foot or horseback to help their guests learn about the Chilean eco-systems. She says don’t miss riding into the Andes to view the condors. “In Puertazul we love to hike, horseback ride and star-gaze,“The skies are amazingly clear and the southern constellations are outrageous, especially from the Hot Tub!

'After all that adventure, you’re going to want to relax. Good thing Maipo is also known for its wineries. The villas are close to several of Chile’s famous vineyards. Their English Speaking local Manager can help you get familiar with the local wines by arranging tasting tours or private wine parties at the villa.

Like Villa Tunquen, Villa Puertazul was built with sustainability in mind. The stucco is local and made from mud and native plants by local craftspeople, as is most of the furniture. Beautiful stone fireplace and wood burning stove provide lots of romance and 100% cotton linens and towels pamper guests’ bodies and souls.

To pamper our stomachs, Villa Puertazul’s chef brings in organic bread and quiches made from local cheeses and vegetables. (She’s also been known to whip up outrageous cakes and pies or create feasts from local fish and great Chilean BBQ. We enjoyed it all accompanied by a great local guitarist!

Comments: Villa Puertazul! What a great place to stay. A wonderful place to relax and enjoy the
pool, hot tub, views, sounds of the river and wonderful gardens.
Nancy is a great cook and very accommodating. Lemon pie – sweet! Quiche de Verduras delivered fresh, hot & early for breakfast. Also, her empanadas were scrumptious as well. We made our way to Banos Colinas and soaked in the salt water hot springs. What a treat, luxuriating whilst taking in the splendor
of the Andes. Chile – a fabulous place. H&S, BC, Canada

I’m nor sure what refugio means in Chilean Spanish. But Puertazul for us is a Refuge… A retreat into a welcoming luxuriant garden, comfortable home, the Now accustomed sound of rushing water, time to read, dine, reflect, doze…We love the fresh morning air, lazy warm afternoons, evening paseos, flowers, We baked, barbecued, Sauteed, and sauced….And then there is smiling, incomparable NANCY, housekeeper 'extraordinaire'!

  • The showers are Great! Guest Comment: I don't know where to begin with your gorgeous home/property Puertazul. First, it was the perfect kind of comfort we needed. And everything from cut flowers in every room was perfect. I discovered San Alfonso twenty years ago when I lived in Chile It was wonderful to come back to the town that hasn't changed much and to stay in such a unique and beautiful place so beautifully landscaped and situated right on the river. We actually spent most of our time on the property with a few hikes up the hills or in to town, but the peace and quiet of the property was just what we were looking for for our retreat. I could go on and on!....moreless
