Why Gloria Renard chose Valparaíso Province
We decided to live here in the countryside more than 20 years ago, for its unique atmosphere, calm and beauty and its perfect location. We are just 20 minutes driving from Casablanca Wineries and 25 minutes from Valparaiso. Santiago airport is about 1 hour from La Retuca.

Fantastic place and even better hosts!
I usually don't write reviews but this was a truly wonderful experience. I'll start by saying that we had plane issues and arrived after dark. I did not arrange for a transfer but Hector met us at the airport anyway and offered to drive our rental car so that we would not have any trouble getting to this beautiful country home. He took the bus and even hitched a ride part of the way to get there so that we would not be inconvenienced. That's over 100 km! Not many hosts would do that! Gloria had dinner waiting for us and it was after midnight. Once there, the meals, wine, company, and warmth were out of this world. Hector and Gloria are both very good cooks and there is always good wine around. Wine, cheese and conversation before dinner was the norm and was always excellent. Their knowledge of the area is great and all of their suggestions were perfect. Just tell them what you want to do and see and they will plan a perfect day for you. I highly recommend them regardless of your age or interests. They know Chile. I didn't know we had family in Chile but am now very glad we do! Thanks for everything
Thanks so much dear Jorge, Ivonne and Cristina -so glad our family is growing!! We did enjoy your company and we couldn't do less knowing that your flight was delayed. Your kind words make all our efforts worthwhile...we'll continue doing our best for all the upcoming visitors! Warm hugs, Gloria & Hector
Gloria and Hector were wonderful hosts. They picked us up at the airport and stopped by a winery for a tasting on the way to their house. The breakfasts and dinners were excellent, even had pisco sours on our porch the first night. An excellent trip to wineries the next day, then a day in Valpo. Showed us wineries we wouldn't have tried, and the best neighborhoods in Valpo. We didn't need a car for this portion of the trip. The best thing was talking with both Gloria and Hector, about Chile, philosophy, and just about everything. Gloria introduced us to a cafe in Valpo where we returned later in the trip and bought a painting that they are shipping back. Thank you, Hector and Gloria!!!
Felt like we were visiting with long time friends
Our stay with Gloria and Hector was absolutely fantastic. They were extremely accommodating and full of excellent suggestions regarding where to go. Their breakfasts and dinners were delicious. They were extremely helpful, even with suggestions for the rest of our trip to Santa Cruz and Santiago. They also helped us with a car rental and got us a great rate. It felt like we were staying with old family friends. We highly recommend staying with them if you are planning on visiting this region.
A must place to stay
If ever you want to visit a place and feel right at home then come to Gloria and Hector's place. You will not find two nicer and genuine hosts anywhere. From the moment you walk in the door and are greeted by the gorgeous smell of home cooking and have settled back with a pisco sour you know you have hit the jackpot. Within minutes you will feel like one of the family not a tourist. Not only do they offer a great place to stay but will show you the real Chile. I cannot recommend this place more highly. Visit and see for yourself as you will not be disappointed.
Heaven in Chile
We had asked Gloria and Hector to help us to experience the real Chile.... that's what we got... beyond our best expectations! They picked us up from our Airbnb in Santiago and pointed out the various sights and background stories as we made our way to their home in La Retuca. We visited many different areas... a farmer's market, wonderful wineries, a tour of Valparaiso including a train ride from Quilpue, Isla Negra, and many other sights along the way. We saw the countryside and heard its history.
Gloria and Hector's home is warm and comfortable.... out of the tourist areas, but well situated to visit those areas after a short drive. Their home prepared breakfasts and dinners are super.... and if you like organic, this is the place for you! Did I mention Pisco sours on the porch!!! Lots of fresh air, fresh food, and wonderful conversation!
Always heed their advice.... they are very familiar with the area, and will guide you to the best places. We couldn't imagine trying to find the places by ourselves, or trying to navigate the winding streets of Valparaiso and Vina del Mar on our own. Also, they gave us advice on joining our cruise ship which worked perfectly.... no lines! And, they even put us in contact with a wonderful couple who gave us a very special tour of Lima..... there's no substitute for good people who only want you the have the best possible experience!
The only bad thing was leaving.... we only wish we had met Gloria and Hector a long time ago... it's good to say that we have friends in Chile!
Gloria and Hector are the best.... if you have a special request, just ask them....
Staying with your favorite grandparents...
We recently stayed at Gloria and Hector's home. We had a nice time in their rustic country house. We enjoyed the solitude and the hospitality. They are the sweetest couple who put a lot of effort into our stay. They are very happy to talk about Chile, politics, their children, etc. They offered to take us on a wine tasting day to 4 of their favorite wineries. I think we had slightly different expectations for wine tasting. They didn't make tasting reservations at any of them, instead giving us their own tour and at one saying we shouldn’t taste there and we only saw it for the view. The next day they took us on a tour of Valparaiso to show us their favorite little boutiques (which were wonderful.) They have a laid back style which is different from other professional tours we have taken. This would be a good stay if you had your own transportation or wanted to have your itineraries planned for you. We have subtracted a star due to the fact that we felt very unsafe being driven by them which added a layer of stress to what should have been a relaxing weekend.
Tours of Casablanca wineries and Valparaiso on request.
