Casa Lapostolle at Clos Apalta offers extraordinary views over 650 hectares of nature, from plains and vineyards to the wild, forested Apalta hillsides and the surrounding mountains.

The Casa has four private and sumptuously appointed casitas, located in the grounds, and nestled into the native forested hillside of the valley. All create a real sense of serenity and privacy, whilst their terraces are ideal settings for quiet contemplation or intimate meals.

The casitas are named Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Carmenére in deference to the grape varieties planted in the Apalta vineyard. Inside wooden ceilings soar above polished wooden floors counterpointed by white walls. Beautiful furniture and furnishings complete the look, which is very much 'upscale apartment'.

Best time to be there

As the climate varies hugely from north to south, different places are best at different times, although spring (September to December) is universally good. Atacama can be visited year-round, central Chile enjoys a Mediterranean climate with good weather throughout. Patagonia is best for hiking in Spring or Summer.
