My wife and I had a delightful four night stay at this estancia, just outside the park. Although it is not a 5 star hotel, we loved the charm of this working ranch. The room we had was large and comfortable, with a view across to the towers of Torres del Paine. Jose, the manager, was delightful. He also spoke English, which was useful. Pisco sours early evening followed by a fabulous dinner, cooked my the wonderful Carmen and served up by Patricia. Everyone there is happy and they really work as a great team. They also catered for our needs as celiacs, so that was a big plus for us. One evening they had an asado and we sampled the fine Patagonian lamb, cooked in the traditional way, followed by some local dancing which we all took part in for fun. Amazing evening!
They have a have a stable of horses there too, and we had a great ride through the countryside. Only a couple of small things to note. Electricity is provided by a generator, which is turned off at midnight. Also, the track to the estancia is quite long with three gates to get through, but that’s part of the fun of staying on a remote estancia. Highly recommend this place, rather than paying a fortune in the park.
