Set high in the hills of Valparaíso overlooking the azure Pacific Below, Casa Higueras is set in a gorgeous 1920s Victorian mansion with a bird’s eye view of the busy port below. Perched in the hills high above the city, get a 360-degree view of the colorful hills where zinc-sided Technicolor homes seem to be built on top of each other.
Inside, chic nostalgia is Casa Higueras’ style. Attractive, dark wood in the staircases and floors are accented with white suede couches. The twenty rooms are elegantly decorated with luminous windows, many opening onto their own private terrace. The bathrooms are divine with tiny Italian glass and fluffy bathrobes.
In the middle of the UNESCO world heritage site, everything is just a short skip away—restaurants, cafés, nightlife, and boutiques. It’s just as easy to stay in and ponder the picturesque port with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc and go for a soak in the hot tub. As night falls, the hills twinkle like fairyland. Gorgeous.
