Estancia Tercera Barranca is located adjacent to Torres del Paine National Park. Our bedroom was large and had a nice modern bathroom. The furnishings were simple, but the bed was very comfortable. The house has a large great room with a large fireplace and stunning views of the mountains. The meals are served in a separate dining house about 100 feet from the main house. All of the cooking is done on a wood burning stove. Both breakfast and dinner are substantial, with fresh baked bread. It is a working farm with horses, cattle and sheep, and the cats and working dogs necessary for such an operation. It is fun to watch the action. We were also able to spot some condors flying over the low hills close to the dining area. Although the Estancia is located adjacent to Torres del Paine, it still takes about an hour to drive from the Estancia to the park entrance. The 13 Km drive from the entrance gate to the house is on a fairly rough gravel road, so it is not possible to drive very fast on this segment. Vincent, the manager, speaks good English Everyone else speaks only Spanish, but nevertheless are very warm and friendly.
