Vacation Home Rental Santiago Chile
|Per night||$350 - $400|
The area is only 50 mins away from downtown Santiago via limited access highway. Along this route you pass through the Central Maipo valley (The rocky alluvial soils that border the course of the Maipo River along its way from the Andes to the coast, red varietals grow well and strong in this warm-but-not-hot region that spreads out due south of Santiago. It sees less rainfall than its higher altitude neighbor to the west), blanketed with vineyards and agriculturally rich valleys of the Maipo River.
The Cheese Route:
On this trip you can learn how cheese, one of the most important derivatives of milk, is made. Melipilla is the center of operations of this initiative, which comprises three independent tours: Culiprán and San Manuel (10 km south of the city); Mallarauco - Bollenar (20 km to the north) and Puangue (8 km to the west), where apart from seeing how cheese is produced you can also enjoy the pleasures of life in the countryside.
Chichera El Bajo
This chicha factory is located in the El Bajo zone at the southern exit from Melipilla on the route to Rapel. Here you can taste delicious chicha with all the purity of Chilean country traditions. The drink, made of fermented grapes, is prepared in the traditional way to ensure greater purity. Alcoholic and non-alcoholic chicha is available and you can also watch the preparation of this traditional product, using rustic elements which evoke bygone days.

Christian met us at the house. He could not have been more generous. We spent the first day relaxing around the pool. The property has a pastoral setting with views of the neighboring farms and grazing animals. This is a beautiful place, quiet and secluded. Although a bit remote, tit proved to be a great location for day trips. One day we visited several wineries near Veramonte and wished we had gone a bit further to also visit the Vina del Bosque winery. Another day we drove to Valparaiso, parked and spent the afternoon on foot. We took the funicular from the port area up the hill, had a great lunch with views of the port and then walked around the historic area. We exited the freeway out of Valparaiso and took an alternate rural road to Melpillia through the hills. It was a beautiful drive and turned out to be a shortcut. It is a great value.
Beautiful, tranquil, fun...what more could you hope for!
