Lodge in Talca, between the coast and the Andes
Amidst the Chilean wine-growing district, looking towards the snow-covered Andes, is Casa Chueca Lodge. The nature reserves of the Altos de Lircay and the Siete Tazas are wonderful hiking destinations, mountain farmers accompany equestrians through the Melado Valley, and the surrounding vineyards welcome wine tasters.
The Lodge is situated on 6 hectors along the banks of the Lircay river. Our guests can enjoy the children’s playground, pool, wine-cellar, vegetarian restaurant, Wi-fi, bike rental, jacuzzi, language school, petting zoo, a fitness room, inline-skating, pedal go-kart and a seminar room. Our different room options offer adequate accommodation for every traveller.
Our “Lamalodge” is located in the core of the Melado Valley at the foot of the volcano San Pedro, only a two hour’s drive from Casa Chueca. Despite its remote location the Lamalodge offers a lot of comfort: kitchen, living-room with wood-fire heating, comfy beds and warm showers. The lodge is the perfect starting point for exploring the Andean world by foot or on horseback.
