About the Property
Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3); roof terrace.
The fully restored property is renowned for its fruit and something is always in season year round. The park-like gardens are very spacious and contain a swimming pool, play ground, BBQ area, and many shady groves and secluded places to relax, read a book or enjoy a drink in peace.
The private self-catering apartment (approx. 861 sq ft) is on the first floor, with views across the valley of Limache in three directions. The large private roof terrace is ideal for watching sunsets. The en-suite bedroom, sitting-room, and fully-equipped kitchen are bright and spacious. WiFi is included and visitors are welcome to use the extensive library in the main part of the house.
The Quinta Escondida makes a wonderful base for exploring central Chile, and is also an excellent place to relax before and after more strenuous trips to the Atacama Desert or Patagonia. For those needing to improve their fitness prior to hiking the Andes, the nearby national park in the coastal range around La Campana Mountain is ideal preparation.
The Mediterranean climate of the Limache Valley has always been famous for its vegetables, but in recent times, it has also become known for its centers of yoga and meditation, dance and music, as well a a major anthroposophical venture based at the local Rudolf Steiner School.
Your host has spent over 25 years travelling the world, but South America is her passion and she is an excellent source of information on all things touristic in Chile.

About the owner: Natascha Scott-Stokes established herself as an independent traveller in 1989, when she became the first woman to travel the length of the Amazon River, from its Maranon source to the sea off Brazil. She is the author of several travel books and guide books, and also biography. Running a tourism business is her idea of fun and she loves welcoming visitors to her beautiful home she shares with her teenage sons, whose father hails from Montreal/Canada.
Why the Owner Chose Limache, Valparaiso Region, Chile:
It was simply love at first sight. The Quinta Escondida is unique and the opportunity to live here is a privilege. We also adore the views across the valley and the hiking in La Campana National Park.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
A great asset is enjoying the benefits of a small country estate, yet being five minutes walk from the main supermarket in town, and also within easy reach of the the urban delights of Santiago, Valparaiso and Vina del Mar . You do not need to rent a car to explore from here, because public transport is easy and extensive. The property is completely private and ideal for those who want to relax in peace. The owner's personal library is a great source of literature in English, Spanish, German and French, as well as many guide books. The tourism information available to visitors is unrivalled.
