andBeyond Vira Vira
Set in an idyllic setting, andBeyond Vira Vira is the quintessential lake district retreat.
Enjoying an idyllic setting, within earshot of the Liucura River and in the shadow of Villarrica volcano, andBeyond Vira Vira is the quintessential lake district retreat. This is one of Chile’s finest places to stay, managed by andBeyond alongside its portfolio of exclusive African lodges. A cheese and dairy farm, andBeyond Vira Vira grows its own produce which features in its day-to-day menus – and the food is superb here. As well as fellow guests you may encounter ponies, sheep, ducks and geese as you explore its lushly forested grounds.
There’s a choice of accommodation available: rooms within the main house are cosy and comfortable, while within the grounds spacious suites with ample windows and a terrace or balcony facing the river or lagoon offer greater privacy and take full advantage of your romantic setting. Your hosts are keen to ensure you get the most out of this beautiful part of the Chilean lake district, offering a carefully crafted programme of excursions and activities.
What our clients say
Highlights:- Chile was just fantastic, and we thoroughly enjoyed our experiences in both Patagonia and Atacama. Really quite memorable.MR
Highlight?: Trips into parts of the Atacma Desert that were not in fact desert but little islands of habitation frequented by only a few.RP, Glasgow
Highlight?: Easter Island - amazing place - very good food, hardly any tourists and extraordinary history/statues etc. We could easily have stayed an extra night there. I would strongly recommend hiring a car there. We also booked a snorkelling trip which was good.CK, Ashtead
Patagonia's open spaces, clean air and stunning views. Chilean people were very friendly and helpful. Excellent food.MP, Hemel Hempstead
Highlight?: The Grey GlacierJC, Ipswich
