Andy is a super hostess. She met us at the supermarket to show us the way, took the patience to help us shop for rental skis and even checked out different rental shops on the Internet for us, and helped us negotiate a fair price for rental of snow chains. During our stay, Andy answered all questions, provided useful logistics information, advise about traffic, etc. Andy even upgraded the cabin for us, installing WiFi (prepaid mobile router).
The location of the cabin is perfect for skiing or hiking in the Farellones. Driving to the ski resorts takes about half an hour. The Yerbe Loca nature preserve is great for hiking, about 15 minutes away. The Alto Naranja trek starts about 10 minutes away. We also spent a day in Santiago's Las Condes district, about 15 minutes away.
We (2 people) spent 9 very comfortable nights in the cabin, cooking our own meals and enjoying the peace and quiet of Farellones valley. The only sound around was the constant swish-and-gurgle of the stream flowing through the back yard - great background music to fall asleep to after a day of strenuous hiking.
