Spend your first two nights in the luxurious accommodations of The Ritz-Carlton Santiago, Chile. Offering five-star luxury in the prestigious Las Condes district, the Ritz will provide respite after a day of touring Santiago, visiting some of the city’s attractions such as Plaza de Armas, the Cathedral, Ahumada Boulevard, Old Santiago, and the Central Market where we will explore the culinary delights alongside Chef Bob. Your tour will also include a drive through the bohemian neighborhood of Bellavista, up to San Cristobal Hill for a magnificent panoramic view of the city and the Andes Mountain Range, and ending in the modern part of Santiago, including its chic neighborhoods and shopping district.
In addition to your time in downtown Santiago, you will experience some of the finest Chilean wines in the Casablanca and Curacavi Valleys. Your tastings will be interspersed between visits to Las Salinas and Reñaca beaches, Viña del Mar (known as the garden city for its beautiful parks), and Valparaiso – a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where stairways and old funicular lifts lead up to the hills on which the city was built. As well, Valparaiso and Casablanca Valley were jointly added to the select list of 10 Great Wine Capitals global network.
4 nights in La Serena, Chile
After a brief domestic flight from Santiago, you will touch down in La Serena, Chile where your home base for four nights will be CasaMolle, an exquisite property that Premier has secured solely for this group. Your stay will include three gourmet meals per day – including three Chef dinners and a cooking class, -- and an open bar. You will also have at your disposal guided horse rides, biking, golfing, kayaking, boccia courts, guided trekking, swimming/hot tub/sauna, and yoga.
On your final full day in La Serena at CasaMolle, we will visit the magical Elqui Valley, touring the winery of “Cavas del Valle” (Cellars of the Valley) one-hour drive from La Serena towards the Andes. This boutique winery is run by a retired couple, Raymundo Piraces and Marlies Duerr, and you will be attended directly by them, touring the facilities and enjoying wine samples while you relax in an enchanting pergola. Your evening will be capped off with an elegant Chef’s dinner in the hotel’s Titi Salon.
