Graeme and Tammy Shaw live in Missoula, Montana. They first visited Chile in 1989, spending four months, travelling all over Patagonia and Easter Island. After many years of extensive travel throughout Patagonia, they found the wonderful Chilean town of Llifen on Lago Ranco in December 2006. This was the real Chile they had been searching for. Graeme and Tammy purchased land on the Fundo Chollinco and built the custom Casa Calcurrupe.
Graeme Shaw purchased this house in 2007
This is one of the finest homes available in Southern Chile. It is located on the Rio Calcurrupe and offers world class fishing. Located in the small friendly town of Llifen and a short drive to Futrono in the Region of the Rivers. Futrono is located on Lago Ranco and one of Chile's finest restaurants is here. What is there to do? Hot Springs, horseback riding, fishing, ecotourism, waterfalls, beaches, mountain climbing, hiking, rafting and boating.
The three most important features of this property are: 1) Location in a real Chilean town that is unspoiled by tourism. 2) Well built custom home with a killer hot tub over looking the Rio Calcurrupe. 3) Quiet and peaceful river location that is easy to get to.
Graeme and Tammy Shaw spent 20 years traveling all over Southern Chile and Argentina. In 2005 they visited Llifen for the first time. They found a small, clean, friendly and untouched town of 600 wonderful people and world class fishing.
The Lago Ranco - Llifen area is one of the finest areas in all Chile Patagonia. The Rio Calcurrupe is a world class trout and salmon fishing river. It is one of three 'catch and release' streams in Chile. Absolutely fantastic fly fishing and off the tourist circuit. No American owned lodges or guides here.
A few minutes down the road from Llifen is the town of Futrono, population about 15,000. One of Chile's finest restaurants, De Pellin Y Coique, is located just out of town with panoramic views of Lago Ranco and the Andes. Futrono is also a clean and friendly Chilean town. There are several gasoline stations, super markets, restaurants and cafes on the main street. Fresh fruit and vegetables abound and the store owners will give you personal service. This is truly what life in the USA must have been like in the 50's.
Must do activities include a drive around Lago Ranco? The towns of Puerto Nuevo and Lago Ranco make for great visits. The scenery is spectacular passing through blueberry and dairy farms.
Just outside of Llifen are several beautiful waterfalls and expansive lake beaches. The Termas de Llifen has hot water baths and massages. The Hosteria Chollinco has very good lunches, views from a great deck and Chile's best Pisco Sours.
A few miles up the Rio Calcurrupe Valley is Mavidahue Centro Campestre which offers a Spa Rural, horseback rides, fishing and eco-tourism. This is a fine operation. Another must do is a trip into the Andes to Termas de Chihuio. These hot springs sit high in the Andes on the Chile-Argentine border. A wonderful drive to one of Patagonia's best hot springs.
Llifen is about one hour drive from the Pan-American HWY, all on good paved roads. Valdivia is 1.5 hours away, Puerto Montt and Puerto Varas are 2.5 hours’ drive.
