Set on a hillside in the middle of Valparaiso with a magnificent view of Valparaiso’s bay, is Casa Higueras. In this colorful, quirky, hilly area, you will find houses of all styles and sizes, Casa Higueras hidden among them. The simple façade of Casa Higueras hides a sophisticated and warm boutique hotel housed in a 1920s mansion. Lovingly restored, Casa Higueras is the perfect combination of modern comfort, elegance and history. On the garden level you find the pool with a line of white sun chairs. The spa invites the guests to a complete relaxation experience while the restaurant offers delicious meals. Casa Higueras has with 20 rooms at five different levels. The rooms are comfortable, bright, and spacious and each has a terrace.
We really like Casa Higueras, and Valparaiso in general, as an alternative to Santiago. Many Chile itineraries that cover Torres Del Paine, Atacama and other regions can require multiple overnights in Santiago to make the flights work. It is nice to head to Valparaiso, only an hour and a half from Santiago, for a change of pace on one of those nights.
