I fell in love with La Postita because of it's peace and quiet and expansive view of the valley, lake, and mountains beyond. It's a place where you wake up to the sound of birds singing and feel the gentle breeze, and hear its rustling sound of the sugarcane nearby. It's so nice to sit on the deck a watch the sunset with a nice glass of Clilean wine. From here I can walk our trails or visit the tourist destination sites or take a river rafting trip. It's a lovely place to get away from it all.
