"We liked all the properties but this was definitely our favourite . The food was amazing- breakfast and dinner. The pool and grounds were gorgeous. Everything was perfect."
(Client 2018)

"A wonderful relaxing holiday. The hotel was superb, the location was stunning. The owners were extremely helpful, friendly and caring. The food was excellent, the meals were all of high quality and variety. If you have any allergies such as gluten free or lactose intolerant the chefs will readily cater for this. All staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is out in the countryside so you need a car to get around. Santiago about 25 minutes away. I would highly recommend this hotel." (Client 2016)

"During our first week we stayed at the Casa Grande de Bachao. We had a great week at the hotel. The standard of accommodation, service and food was exceptional. Everyone at the hotel was very friendly, especially the owner Javier. The quality and selection of food we were served was delicious, with exciting and interesting dishes for the children too. The location is situated in stunning woodland, but only 20 minutes from Santiago. We would highly recommend this hotel and would love to return", (Client 2007)
