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.

Our Expert's Opinion

It's hard to beat Chile's northern lake district if you love the great outdoors with walks in monkey puzzle forests, river rafting, volcano hikes, and natural hot springs to recharge in. Vira Vira is the perfect base - quieter than Pucón and with some really imaginative activities on offer.
