Lakes District: Where to Base for 10 days

Jump to last reply

Hello, still here!
At the point of making reservations where we think we will need them for our retirement trip.

Thinking we will be in the Lakes District of Chile and Argentina for 3 weeks January and February. We would like to rent a place for 7-10 days of this timeframe and take day trips, both driving, hiking and cycling. Still sorting through the pros and cons of areas in Chile and Argentina. Have looked at Pucon, Puerto Varas, San Martin de los Andes, Bariloche and Villa Angustura.

We envision a place where we could eat out well, have a glass of wine in a lively place, take scenic car trips and do some hiking, etc. returning to a quiet apartment at end of day. We are willing to rent a car as needed.

I know we are going at a popular time of year and thought best reserve now.

Any thoughts appreciated.
