La Casona at Matetic Vineyard
Small and charming hotel set on a vineyard, with a serene rural ambience that belies its proximity to the capital – a great alternative to staying in the city.
The idyllic Matetic vineyard and its small hotel, La Casona, are situated in the Antonio Valley, where a refreshing microclimate supports the cultivation of Pinot Noir and Shiraz grapes. It's just an hour's drive from Santiago airport, but the rural peace and serenity are such that it feels a world away from the modern capital.
Accommodation is in a renovated 100-year old estancia set around a central courtyard with adobe walls and colonnaded walkways. Surrounding the house are beautiful gardens with formal topiary and an outdoor lap pool, beside which you can relax and enjoy views to the vineyards.
There are just seven guest rooms, each decorated in a simple but elegant style. One of these rooms is a luxury suite and has a whirlpool bath.
There is a restaurant specialising in gourmet Chilean cuisine with menus prepared to complement the vineyard's excellent wines. Other facilities include a spacious living room, pool table and bar. Wine tasting and a tour of the winery are included in your stay.

Another interesting venue with all the facilities you need, particularly for relaxing at the end of an eventful holiday. We had a lovely roomy, airy suite. Reception staff not very engaged, but excellent restaurant service for breakfast and dinner. Very peacefulJC, Wokingham
"A lovely intimate feel with just seven rooms, so expect to interact with the other guests."BM,Macclesfield
This was a superb place to stay at the end of our trip. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The room was really comfortable and the extensive gardens were a delight to walk around, with plenty of bird and wildlife. The excellent breakfast and dinner was like dining in a small private members club with our own steward. We were really well looked after by James. We also had an excellent lunch in their Equilibrio Restaurant, which is on the same site. The tour of the Matatic winery was also very interesting.JR, Grimsby
Welcoming place. Good included excursion. Delightful garden and grounds. Nice bedroom and en suite. Excellent dinners with truly personal service. Proactively handled [and very well] a problem with hot water to some rooms including mine. A nice shop and a very pleasant small restaurant open to the public. I would have been happy to stay longer and used the place as a base for visiting Valpariaso.pethaps best on arrival in country rather than before departure but that is a very personal thing.KO, Salisbury
"Excellent food, lovely gardens. Just right for a break in travelling. Tour of vineyard and tasting excellent and informative."FL, Dewsbury
A lovely, attentive venue - it was like being part of a small family. As the only guests, we could have felt smothered but they were perfect. We stayed here entirely on Sophie's recommendation - it was the perfect start to our honeymoon. A fantastic tour of the vineyard and wonderful food! We would definitely stay here again if we were ever lucky enough to return to Chile.VK,Norwich

"Delightful accommodation in a peaceful setting, excellent food and outstanding wine, friendly helpful service. A great way to recover from the overnight flight from Madrid. The winery itself was a beautiful building, and the bike ride there was pleasant and not too far."MT, Henley on Thames
