Coming from the north coast of Chile this has been our best place to stay so far. We really appreciated the 10:30 pm tour, bilingual on request (15000pp).
Camping here is at it’s best. Nice location in the vineyard, clean bathrooms and hot shower, communal area for sitting and cooking, small
But clean pool. Very friendly people and a great project to support. Paid 5000 pp in a truck camper. Highly recommend, nice for families too.
