The Chilean lake district is an area of Latin America which is beginning to gain popularity, yet still remains very much unspoilt. The area is a haven for those seeking a connection with nature and plenty of outdoor activities. From white water rafting to volcano trekking, and bird-watching to horse riding, there is a wide range of options to amuse every traveller of every age. And if you would rather sit back and relax, this scenic area with natural hot springs and peaceful forests won’t disappoint.

Nestled within all of this natural beauty and adventurous atmosphere is the Vira Vira luxury hotel. A Relais and Chateaux property, it has hit the nail on the head with it’s charming and cosy design mixed with modern touches. The whole property is mostly self sufficient thanks to the huge farm within the grounds, and guests will be impressed with the fresh food and homely welcome which awaits them.

NAME: Vira Vira

LOCATION: The Chilean Lake District

NO. OF ROOMS: 18 in total, 12 of which are suites.

FOOD & DRINK: The hotel produces almost all of its food from its 40 acres of land, which includes a fully functional farm. The restaurant takes full advantage of this and serves fresh meals from a daily menu. Each meal is paired with a local wine to complete the experience.

OUTSTANDING FEATURE: The simply stunning location is enough to take any travellers breath away. The hotel sits within gardens full of native plants and flowers, rivers and lagoons. The views out over mountains and volcanoes combine with a peaceful atmosphere to create a truly wonderful escape.

BEST FOR: The modern and cosy styling of this hotel will appeal to all, but this hotel is particularly attractive to those wanting to make the most of this exciting region and get involved with the many activities on offer.

MUST DO ACTIVITY: The hotel lives by the slogan ‘The Elegance of Adventure’ which means there is plenty on offer, however, one highlight of this region is the unmissable Villarica volcano which is located close to the hotel. This impressive snow capped cone is visable from miles away, but to truly experience it, there are options to climb to the top and peer into the lava filled depths, alternatively, take a helicopter ride over the peak or explore the volcanic caves and tunnels underground. After a full day of volcanic explorations, what better way to end the day than a soak in the hotsprings that this region is famous for? All of these activities, and more, are offered by the hotel.

ECO CREDENTIALS: Vira Vira pursues high ecological standards and cares deeply for the surrounding environment. This fully working farm produces much of it’s own food grown in traditional, natural and healthy ways.
