Perched like an eagle high above the village of Apalta in Chile’s Colchagua Valley, the Clos Apalta winery and its four casitas claim the valley’s most prized view. An exclusive slice of paradise for wine lovers, these four villas are nestled into the forested hillside in a bucolic, peaceful setting.
Your handsome villa, named after one of the grape varieties in the Clos Apalta wine like Carmenere, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Petit Verdot, is tastefully furnished with native hardwoods, along with white and earthy tones. Each villa sports a Jacuzzi and private terrace, perfect for gazing upon that enchanting vista: green-carpeted valley floor with vines and the serrated Andes in the distance.
For your all-inclusive stay, sleep in and then go for a hike to the top of the hill to marvel at how nature has blessed this spectacular corner of Chile. Swirl down into the gravity-flow winery buried six stories in the earth for private tasting and visit Madame Marnier’s private wine cellar (only for hotel guests). Let your feet dangle in the infinity pool as the world melts away. Indulge in delicious meals with organic vegetables where the fine house wines flow like water.
Sounds like the life? It is. A once-in-a-lifetime experience.
