About William Pinsent
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
William Pinsent purchased this Chalet in 2002
Why William Pinsent chose Farellones
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 Chalet 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.
Pool / Spa
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.

Voltaremos com certeza
Fomos em quatro casais e dois adolescentes. A casa é muita boa.
Confortável, bonita e muito bem localizada. A vista é fantastica.
Adoramos curtir a lareira e a varanda no após ski. Voltaremos com
Jose, thanks for the review.
For the benefit of myself and others who do not read Portuguese, I asked Google to translate this and they said ...
We'll be back

We were four couples and two teenagers. The house is a lot of good.
Comfortable, beautiful and very well located. The view is fantastic.
We love to enjoy the fireplace and balcony on after ski. We'll be back
As a point of clarity here, Jose fitted 10 guests by taking on 2 extra beds ( for last minute additions on his trip). Normally accommodation is suggested for 8 persons.
Exatamente conforme as fotos!! Excelente!!!
Fiquei muito surpreso com o espaço exatamente preservado conforme as fotos. O Sr. Sak, quem nos recebeu, foi atencioso e estava sempre a disposição quando precisamos. Curtimos muito a lareira todos as noites e a família até se aventurou num banho de jacuzzi aquecida. Tudo esteve funcionando full time! Nós todos gostamos muito e recomendamos! Pena não ter conhecido o Sr. William, que falei apenas pela internet via e-mail, gostaria de agradece-lo pessoalmente.
Not being a Portuguese reader, I had to have Google translate this for me -
"I was very surprised with the space preserved exactly as the photos. Mr. Sak, who received us was attentive and was always available when we need to. Much we enjoyed the fireplace every night and the family even ventured a heated Jacuzzi bath. Everything was working full time! We all enjoyed and recommend! Pena had not known Mr. William, who spoke only on the internet via e-mail, would like to thank him personally."
Normally I am there all the ski season to host my guests, but this year I had to return to Thailand early due to some personal reasons. I do hope that you will return next year and we can meet then.
The only place to stay when skiing the Andes
My wife and I stayed here with our three children for a week in August 2011 and our experience could not have been better! The photos accurately reflect the pristine and impeccably furnished space. Everything in the unit is high quality and brand-new. And most importantly there is lots of space. The owner could not have been more helpful and accommodating. And, of course, the skiing at is incredible!
The ski lifts at Farellones are five minutes walk away – those at La Parva and El Colorado a five minute drive ( but this is not necessary as all the resorts interconnect)
Don't forget to ask William to point out the direct ski trail to access Farellones - once learnt we never used the car again.
We would definitely rent this space again.
Hi Andrew. Thanks for sharing your experience about Casa Farellones. I am most glad to point out the back trail to the ski slopes to any of our guests.
