Located right beside the lifts, with restaurants and varied ski services within a block, no car is needed! Sunny with superb views, and you just ski out from 2 floors down. Enjoy a quiet atmosphere while watching the sunset. Full kitchen.
This is an excellent apartment, situated just one hour from Santiago Chile, in the La Parva ski area (960 metres of vertical drop), which normally operates from June to September. The ski area has varied and extensive terrain, superb dry snow, and is sunny 80% of the season. Lift access starts straight from your door, with links to Valle Nevado and El Colorado ski areas as well. Bunny runs, ski school, rentals, and restaurants are half a block away. No vehicle is needed!
The apartment is 50 metres from the ski lift, ski in and out, is luminous, and has great mountain and sunset views. It has three (3) bedrooms: 1 bedroom has 2 bunk beds (4 beds); one has a double bed, and the third bedroom is a large ensuite with a king size bed. There are two (2) bathrooms in the apartment, a comfortable living/dining room, a large terrace facing northwest, a storage area, and a full kitchen. Equipped with a gas BBQ, 2 TV's, DVD player, stereo (there is no dishwasher, phone or internet however there is 3G mobile phone coverage). There are also 2 parking spaces if needed. The concierge and his wife are helpful (only spanish), and usually can clean, cook and wash on request. Walk a block to the restaurants, rentals, and other services area.
Cellular coverage (3G) reaches La Parva, however no fixed lines or wifi are available in the building as yet. Wifi is available at 2 restaurants in the ski area. Cable TV and a cell phone with 3G can be arranged with prior notice.
Basic groceries are sold at a shop in the resort, more at Farellones 5 km down the road, although it is best to take your own food from Santiago. I am normally available on cell phone to help with any and all needs, including coordinating transport.
We can also offer full board, ski guiding, and provide other touristic services. If you require any of these, please contact us for pricing and conditions. Weekend rentals are also possible depending on our agreement, and summer stays as well (splendid mountaineering, horseback riding, and biking. Also condors, foxes etc frequent the area). We want your stay to be great!

Stay here and you could give this host their first review!
Originally from Canada, now living in Chile. Adventurous middle aged, tranquil but curious, I live for new sights and concepts. Family with 3 boys. We like to ski, hike, bicycle, camp, and enjoy photography, nature, music, and art in general. Have visited over 60 countries and traveled Chile extensively. Currently developing a remote glamping site in the Araucania region of southern Chile.
I like to meet people, and when they are in Chile, I help them enjoy this fascinating country as much as possible.
