Our Cottages

Welcome to Refugio Finichico located in Santa Sofia de lo Caña, a private ecological reserve of some 50 dwellings, each in its own land, to the east of Santiago, the capital of Chile. Refugio Fini Chico is the highest residence and has breathtaking panoramic views. It is an ideal location for shooting films, soap operas/telenovelas as well as clips for advertising and marketing or simply use it as a retreat and escape the noise and pollution of the city below. As the highest dwelling it offers breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains by day and of the bright city lights of Santiago by night. It offers comfortable accommodation consisting of 2 self catering wooden cottages in private grounds of 16 acres with a private swimming pool. Within the grounds there is a communal stone built quincho or open cabana offering a large covered space to barbeque, eat and relax. This is an ecological reserve and energy is provided by solar panels, consequently energy is limited. This means that guests share with each other a communal fridge in the quincho. It also means there is no washing machine. However there is a special washing sink outside built of volcanic rock which is excellent for hand washing. Ice boxes are provided in each cottage. This is also an ideal space for yoga or meditation retreats and if you enjoy walking and hiking our private land leads to a hike above the cottages culminating in the chain of the Andes with magnificent flora and fauna. During the summer months there is lots of organic fruit at refugio fini chico and guests are encouraged to help themselves. Due to the location, access for the last 300 metres or so is only on foot or in a 4 wheel drive – we are happy to organise this transport with prior notice from guests. Refugio Fini Chico is within easy access of the beautiful Cajon Del Maipu. The nearest supermarket is 15 minutes by car, the nearest metro station, Bellavista La Florida is approximately 20 minutes by car and the airport is approximately a 30 minute taxi ride.
Refugio Fini Chico is available to rent both short term and long term.
