TerraVina

Santa Cruz, Colchagua Valley, Chile

Sparkling clean colonial-style hotel with pool, set in its own vineyard and surrounded by green Andes foothills

Imagine a room with a view over acres of emerald-green vineyards; then riding through those vineyards in a horse-driven cart to a pretty bodega for a winery tour and tasting. And in the evening, walking through the same vineyards for a tasty meal at a family ristorante, before strolling back under the stars. This triumvirate of hotel, winery and restaurant is what makes TerraVina so special. Built and owned by a Danish-Chilean couple, it is just outside the town of Santa Cruz, the centre of the Colchagua Valley, Chile’s answer to Napa Valley. Colchagua is already internationally recognised as producing the country’s best wine, from the Carmenère grape, and with its beautiful backdrop of the Andes foothills, TerraVina has a prime location in the valley.

New in 2010, the hotel still has a scrubbed Scandinavian freshness with white walls, rauli wood beams, wicker furniture and terracotta roof tiling. All 19 rooms have a patio overlooking the vineyard and share a long shaded veranda facing the pool and mountains. The hotel vineyard grows Merlot grapes for the nearby Laura Hartwig winery and there is a private pathway through them to the aforementioned excellent Italian restaurant, Vino Bello. Fine wine, great food and clean, comfortable rooms - it’s a perfect 3-point holiday plan for relaxation.

Highs

  • A lovely base for touring local wineries and hiking, biking and horse riding in the picturesque Colchagua Valley
  • Friendly English-speaking owners Anne and Eduardo who know Colchagua well and are happy to recommend and book local activities
  • Spectacular Andes and vineyard views from your room
  • Tasty buffet breakfasts and great cheese platters with wine on request
  • Lazing by the pool, which gets the sun all day, then moving to the patio for sundowner drinks

Lows

  • It’s a 10-minute walk into Santa Cruz, along a fairly busy road, although taxis are very cheap
  • Santa Cruz itself doesn’t have a lot of attractions, although its museum houses the biggest private collection in Chile
  • No lunch or dinner available at the hotel itself
