Puerto Varas – Chile

Puerto Varas – Chile Lake District

We have arrived in paradise. 24km out of Puerto Varas on a farm in a gorgeous old cottage is where we will be spending our next four days. Well, not exactly IN the cottage the whole time, even though I would not mind that.

We took a local bus from Puerto Varas, a very beautiful, charming town, to our destination. You can simply ask to be dropped anywhere along the road between two towns and then pay for the distance traveled before disembarking. Cheerful Spanish music and lovely scenery make for a very pleasant trip.

We met our host and her two eldest daughters walking up their driveway – us from the bus and they from the little local school down the road. We were welcomed by their two almost identical, huge, Pyrenees puppies. In our charming timber kitchen waited freshly baked bread rolls and apples from the orchard. Yummo!!

The farm is on Lake Llanquihue, with Volcano Osorno, snow capped and majestic in the background. The kids had a swim in the lake, while Jarik and I enjoyed a glass of wine (compliments of our wonderful hosts), sitting on a log-bench. Life doesn’t get much better than this.
