  • Rustic!

Updated 12/31/1969

Fodor's Review

You won't soon forget this innovative concept. Five extra-large domelike tents with wooden floors, a wood stove, and mattresses are connected by wooden walkways that twist through a lovely forest. A cedar-wood hot tub is available. Nearby there are hiking trails. The Tique Restaurant serves up good food, with an eclectic array of dishes such as roasted salmon, steak and fries, roast lamb, spicy pork, or zucchini pie.

i gave them 5 stars!

I don't know why it says 3 above, but I gave them 5! Posting again. My husband and I went here for two days during our honeymoon last winter (summer:). We were visiting my family in the Lake region and wanted to find a new interesting place to experience. It was a long bus ride from Puerto Varas, but we were glad to get away from all the tourists and find somewhere remote. Victor was extremely accommodating and so was his mother who makes the food

fresh daily. I speak spanish, but I think english speakers (like my husband) could easily communicate with them. The dome tents were really cool. It's like camping but in a large, comfortable and dry room. We were the only ones there, so the hot tub and kitchen were basically ours whenever we wanted them! The food was dynamite. Victor's mother would ask us over breakfast what we felt like for dinner! Usually we chose the fresh fish they caught that day. The only con is that the river was a good 10 minute walk away and the water was low, so there was no river swimming very close to the camp. We also arrived the day the tábanos emerged (no fun to walk by the river- no fun at all!), but if we had visited during a different week in the summer, it would have been fine. Luckily, the tabanos didn't follow us back to the domo campo, which is surrounded by lush forest. Victor arranged for a kayak afternoon which was beautiful. The water in the lake we kayaked was crystal clear. The day we left, Victor gave us a huge jar of honey that they make on their bee farm and drove us to town to catch our bus. Every time I feel like I am getting sick I have a spoonful of honey and immediately feel better, no joke. In fact, I have been looking for a way to find it online, which is how I came to this website and realized I should write a review!! Thank you Victor for such a wonderful visit, I hope you and your family are well!! -Sheila and Josh

Lovely and quiet getaway
