Property description

• Luxury eco home in one of the most beautiful spots on earth! A perfect getaway by
itself or as part of a Patagonian adventure. Ideally located minutes from Pucón yet
peaceful with indescribable views of the Villarrica Lake and Volcano as well as pasture
land, Andean foothills, farm animals.
• Amor del Lago (Love of the Lake) is secluded, yet very safe, and has a dynamite view!
• Retreat and relax after an active day in the outdoors or hang out on the couch or the
deck with your favorite novel a glass of Chilean wine.
• One-of-a-kind Egyptian décor from our travels! Think Cairo transported to
Southern Chile! Brilliantly colorful décor, all the comforts and conveniences at home at
an affordable price. Appliances (including dishwasher and washer/dryer) and
amenities are all up to American and European standards. You will NOT find another
cabana like this in Chile. The closest is our other cabin, Amor del Lago, one property
away.
• Amor del Lago is far better better insulated than other Chilean cabanas, with
double-pane windows and hot water heated by a boiler wood stove in cold The best
mattresses and bedding for our guests. We place the highest priority on healthy living
and use no pesticides or herbicides of any kind on our property.

Some tips to decide between our two cabins, Romance and Amor:
- Amor is located on the bottom of the Gracias a la Vida property. Romance is a few
minutes further down the hill, outside the main gate, on the adjoining property to the
north. Amor has a lake view and is more secluded. Romance has a lake and a volcano
view.
- Both have 2 bedrooms and can accommodate a fifth person in a single inflatable bed
in the living/dining area. Both are colorful, light-filled, and have elevated decks.
- Both are well insulated and ecological in design and energy usage. Romance has
in-floor heating.
- Both are located in a pastoral setting amidst sheep, horse, and cows grazing in the
distance. Our golden retrievers occasionally visit Amor (especially Oso, a gentle soul
who loves children). The dogs do not have access to Romance.
- Romance has Moroccan décor and Amor Egyptian furnishings.
- Amor has its own quincho (covered barbecue area with chairs). Romance has a
portable outdoor grill.

The perfect year-round getaway to enjoy the wide array of activities in the scenic Chilean lake district. Enjoy hiking in the beautiful nearby national parks, rafting the Trancura river, climbing or skiing the volcano, and soaking in a local hot spring. Visit one of the fifty-plus of restaurants in Pucon or dine indoors or out while taking in the a panoramic view of lake villarrica right from our chalet and terrace. After a magical sunset, view the entire milky way, the southern cross, and other constellations of the southern hemisphere. Listen to the sounds of the native bandurrias (geese). In the winter, get a massage, relax by the fire with your favorite book, take a yoga class ten minutes away, marvel at the snow-capped volcano ten minutes away, snowboard, snow ski, and enjoy the tranquility and exquisite beauty of off-season pucon. Make pucon the beginning or perfect ending of your patagonian adventure.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We are naturopathic/homeopathic doctors and authors, married for 30 years. In 2005 we took a kayak trip to Pumalin Park in the South of Chile, and fell in love with the area around Pucon. We were captivated by the breathtaking beauty of our property and bought it the same day! We named our land Ayun Mapu (Mapuche for 'land of love' or 'land that we love.' We built our dream home and house for our caretaker family. Last year we added a cabin. We have landscaped professionally and enjoy gorgeous flowers, native trees and bushes, fruit trees in a park-like setting as well as savoring the bounty of a large organic garden. We now have 9 acres, sheep, chickens, and a resident German shepherd as well as our outdoor cats and golden retrievers who accompany us from the U.S. It helps that Judyth got a degree in Spanish literature and Bob is avidly improving his Spanish. Our home, Gracias a La Vida, which we vacate ourselves seasonally for guests, was so popular that we decided to build a second rental home which was more economical: Amor del Lago. It is also a place for us to stay when our home is rented.

Why the Owner Chose Pucón, Pucón, Araucanía Region, Chile:
The view, the view, the view!! The shimmering water of the huge lake, the smoldering, snow-capped volcano ten minutes away; the countless stars of the Milky Way from the terrace; the delicious home-cooked Chilean meals with the best wine on the planet; the riotous cosmos, dahlias, lilies, lavender; the compact, colorful kitchen with all the modern conveniences; the great mattresses and soft sheets; the long summer days of light until 10PM, more hikes and hot springs and restaurants than we could name; the honking Chilean geese; the elusive, green lorakeets, who show up now and then. Watching our lambs frolic in the pasture next door. Buying delicious fresh or smoked salmon from the local fishmongers. Attending top-notch yoga classes just ten minutes away. Strolling on the beach all by ourselves. Kayaking on Lake Villarrica with outrageous views everywhere, and no other paddlers in sight. Staying toasty with the Amesti woodstove or visiting one of the numerous local hot springs on a rainy day. Savoring delicious, healthy, organic salads and fresh herbs right from our own garden and greenhouses. Eating the wonderful, fresh cheese that you can buy on practically every corner in Pucon and that we hope to make from our sheep's milk this year. Greeting our cheerful cuidador (caretaker) each morning as he asks, unfailingly, 'Como amanacio?' meaning 'How did you wake up?'

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It took us less than five minutes after stepping onto our land to decide to buy it! The sheer beauty was jaw-dropping! Earlier this year we found the perfect place for the chalet which offers the unique combination of seclusion (nestled in the forest), expansive view of Lake Villarrica, the surrounding mountains, and our sheep pasture, and a remarkably peaceful environment.
