Staying with Ruth and Vincente for two nights was definitely the highlight of our 10 day sojourn across middle Chile. The beauty of their home and gardens were perfectly paired by top notch hospitality and utterly delicious haute cuisine. In fact, since my partner and I are both vegetarian Ruth went out of her way to prepare some of the...

This is the most wonderful place to go to. A haven of tranquility with beautiful gardens to wander around. Vicente and Ruth are the perfect hosts, charming and informative. The cooking classes were fabulous and creative. And the wine pairing at dinners gives that little extra touch. The accommodation is beautifully rustic. For everything you get - the classes, breakfasts,...

Four wonderful nights in the country at Mapuyampay were highlighted by creative and wonderful food accompanied by great wine. Ruth and Vicente are gracious hosts. A cooking class from Ruth is a must do. The rooms are spacious and very unique with posted cathedral ceilings. Easy access to the Andes, Santa Cruz and many wineries. We will definitely be going...

To get to Mapuyampay from London took 2 flights and a 2.5 hour drive - with our long Madrid layover, a total of 34 hours of travel. But all that fell away within an hour of arriving at the lodge and being greeted by Ruth and Vincente. Beautiful gardens, created with love from what used to be a cornfield. Comfortable...

At approximately $800 for three nights' lodging, a cooking class, three dinners (with wine pairings), three breakfasts and some mini-bar items, my wife and I can say this was one of the most incredible places we have ever stayed. This was not luxury per se but rather a well-run boutique hotel, offering a unique experience and real value for money....

One of the loveliest places to visit with exquisite food and lovely company. Ruth and Vincente are wonderful hosts, nothing is too much trouble and they take the time to let you know about the countryside, the food and the wines of the region. They are also blessed with some lovely guests with whom you can share travelling stories and...

Far from the maddening crowd, a peaceful retreat. Not easiest to find in the dark and about 40 minutes of local roads to get to wineries etc. Just go and relax and unwind for at least 2 days. Ruth was kind enough to cook us dinner for 3 nights about $25 US per person, very enjoyable, wine list reasonable, corkage...

My husband and I recently stayed at Mapuyampay to celebrate my birthday. The lodge is off the beaten path (hard to find, but Ruth coached us over the phone until we found our way), which makes it extremely peaceful - the sounds of the birds chirping is the only noise you'll hear during your stay! They have a gorgeous pool...

We stayed for only a night, we drove from Santiago but it was worth it. Ruth is gracious and a pro. Vicente is friendly and accommodating. Together, they make the perfect hosts. We stayed in a villa and it was really nice to have our own rooms and living room, at a fraction of a hotel room. Dinner was delicious....
