Nestled in the beautiful Colchagua valley, surrounded by verdant forest and with views overlooking the vineyards, this is an intimate and elegant hotel and winery.
Clos Apalta describes itself as ‘French in essence, Chilean by birth’ and this perfectly sums up the style and sophistication and this luxurious wine lodge. The hotel offers just four individual suites each with its own private terrace and garden. Each suite is uniquely decorated, inspired by the four different grape varieties used at the winery. Natural silks, leather and wood create a stylish, airy feel in each room.
The main building, known as The Residence, houses the living room and the dining room which serves delicious cuisine, traditionally Chilean and designed to complement the wines, it uses fresh ingredients from the organic garden. Wine if of course a central feature at this hotel. The Clos Apalta winery, 650 hectares of organic and biodynamic vines, surround the property. Care has been taken over every aspect of the wine production here, right down to the stylish architecture of the winery itself which reflects the harmony of the vines and the countryside. Guests can enjoy tours and tastings, sampling the finest Chilean wines in an elegant and relaxed atmosphere.
Wellness is also important here and guests can enjoy hikes or horseback rides through the countryside and surrounding vineyards. Massages can be arranged and there is an outdoor pool for use during the summer months. There is no better way to start the day than with a yoga class overlooking the mountains, also on offer each morning.
Clos Apalta Residence is the perfect way to enjoy the Chilean wine region.
