If you are a wine buff, or have always wanted to find out more about South Ameirican vintages, this four day stay is simply perfect while enjoying a holiday in Chile. You will sample lots of the beautiful Chilean wines while staying at La Casona at Matetic Vineyards, an eight room boutique hotel located in the unique “El Rosario” Valley, between the Casablanca and San Antonio Wine Valleys. This setting, close to the Pacific Ocean, is also under an hour away from Santiago, Valparaiso and the airport.
Leave Santiago or Valparaiso and travel to La Casona and check in to your boutique hotel. After enjoying a welcome cocktail you have time to relax and explore the area before returning for dinner. La Casona at Matetic Vineyards is a typical, colonial, country home featuring eight stylish rooms. With more than 100 years of history, in 2004 it was fully remodeled and beautifully decorated by the renowned Max Cummins and now offers the perfect setting for a relaxing, unique holiday experience.
Today after breakfast enjoy a wine tour of the area with tastings and learn more about some of those popular Chilean vintages. Return to the hotel and in the afternoon you have a choice of outdoor activities which are available from trekking, horse riding or biking. You can also explore the grounds in the beautiful Rosario Valley and walk around the surrounding vineyards. Tonight you can sit down to a delicious dinner and try some more local wines.
Today is free for you to explore and try some of the many outdoor activities. There is a swimming pool for guests at La Casona, a cozy elegant living room with fireplace, pool table and honesty bar. There is also a private meeting room and meals are prepared by the hotel's private chef. If you want to travel further afield, Santiago, the towns of Vina del Mar and Valparaiso and the Chile coast are all within easy reach. Tonight enjoy the final dinner of your stay with more fine wines.
Today your relaxing break at La Casona at Maetic Vineyards comes to an end. But before you leave there is time for one last excursion in the area after breakfast with the chance of visiting another vineyard. Then it's back to Chile's capital city where you can continue your stay or catch a local flight and continue your South American adventure. Staying at the luxurious La Casona makes a great add on to any longer holiday in the area and offers a great opportunity to learn all about the local wines.
