About William Pinsent HAUK

My wife (Thai) and I (British) are semi retired and now divide our time between homes in Phuket, Thailand (our previous home/business base) and now, chasing the snow, in Big Sky Montana and Farellones, Chile.

William Pinsent HAUK purchased this apartment in 2002

Why William Pinsent HAUK chose Chile

After several year of searching Australia, New Zealand, Argentina and Chile for the best Southern hemisphere resort to build a vacation / retirement home (based upon quality of skiing, reliability of snow, access to shopping and services etc) we eventually decided upon Farellones at the end of the the 2001 ski season. Since Farellones filled all of our requirements, save for availability of attractive property to purchase, we bough land, hired and architect and did this the hard (but rewarding) way.

What makes this apartment unique

The huge open spaces, the uncrowded ski area. Total peace and relaxation. All home comforts brought to a relatively simple and underdeveloped area. The Snow. The Sun. Sitting in the hot tub watching the Condors circling on the thermals as the sun sets over Santiago.

Best Chilean ski experience to date

  • 5 of 5

I've been to Chile for many ski trips during the past 30 years, and this was by far my best experience in terms of accomodations. Apart from the tasteful decoration and wonderful views, the installations are well above average for Chilean rental or hotel standards. The lower unit was perfect for our group of 8 (4 adults and 4 teenagers), with very comfortable rooms and large kitchen and social area, as well as the outdoor area and hot tub which both kids and adults enjoyed. Our host, William, was always available to help with anything we needed. Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Thanks Daniel. I am so glad to hear that the trip was a success for you. I also appreciate that you noticed all the time and trouble it took to make the chalet really special and comfortable. As discussed I look forward to see you returning next year.

Best house for ski in Chile!

  • 5 of 5

Its our 3rd time in CasaFarellones. We just love the place by its confort, view and localization. You can ski in 3 different ski resorts (La Parva, El Colorado and Valle Nevado) that are really close. I sugget to rent a van on Santiago, buy food and the good Chilean wine and stay ther for a week, as the kitchen is complete... don´t forget the sparkling wine for the hot tube after ski.

Breath taking views. Amazing Chalet

  • 5 of 5

Even before arriving Mr. William was very helpful with tips on what to take and when and where to go. Upon arrival they were waiting for us and helped us with our luggage. We had a couple of problems with the plugs of the house (Chilean Plugs). Again Mr. William immediately sent adapters. There was just enough snow for the kids to take lessons every day. The last three days we got 20" of powder. What an amazing vacation. Than-you, Thank-you, Thank-you.

Owner's Response: Gabriela, I am so glad that everything worked out for you. I was a little worried with the unseasonably late start to the season, but El Colorado mountain, proved once again that they can make even a little snow work and were the first to fully open when the big snow arrived). Hope we will get to see you in Big Sky Montana this winter.

Great house, probably best skiing house near SCL

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in early July and had a great time. The house is fully stocked - all you need is ski gear and food/drink. William is a great host and once he showed us the path to the resort (so you dont have to drive) we never touched our car again so get him to show you the route on day 1!!!

Farellones, (grand bahaja)
Car: recommended

Located on a ridge at the southern edge of the village of Farellones ( one hours drive east of Santiago), with panoramic views on three sides, the chalet is five minutes walk from the ski lifts at Farellones (you can ski back) and five minutes drive from the ski base at La Parva or El Colorado (you can ski all the way back from here too). Valle Nevado (the third linked valley / resort in the area) is a 15 minute drive but can be accessed easily on skis from either El Colorado or La Parva ski areas. Skiing and boarding are the main winter activities. There is ample lift serviced terrain in the 3 resorts, but if you feel the need to venture further, Helli ski services are available from La Parva and Valle Nevado. In summer mountain walking climbing or horse riding are available. We'll be happy to provide further details and make the necessary arrangements.

Other Activities: snow skiing and boarding

Unlike the ski base villages at La Parva and El Colorado, which empty out in the summer months, Farellones has many year round residents and the generally green and tree filled gardens make it a pleasure to visit in the summer.
