Vina Casa Silva
Travel Blogs from San Fernando
Casa Silva winery is the oldest and most traditional in the Colchagua Valley. They have recently turned the original family home into a gorgeous b&b, full of stripped ancient beams, Fench style furnishings (think Brissi but originial so genuinely bashed and used rather than artfully distressed) and a roaring fire. When we arrived in the pitch black …
Our second and final morning at Hostel Morgan and who was the only other couple (married 54 years) in the breakfast room......a very nice couple from Prince Edward Island!

Today was a crazy day.
I woke up at 6:15, went to set up breakfast for 7, served it, talked with Hernen and Pato, the regulars, a bit, cleaned up and then headed to the vineyard to weed. Don Cele told me what to do, and I set about pulling out those pesky molestias for about 3.5 hours. I have the farmer's tan/sunburn to prove it. It was surprisingly relaxing. Mostly because every time I looked up from the ground I realized I was sitting in a vineyard, ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsVina Casa Silva San Fernando
We arrived at around 9pm rather tired and hungry. It is such a shame that there is not a better welcome for late arrivals at Casa Silva. We raided the mini bar (why only a half bottle available) and had a $5 packet of crisps. A small welcome platter with cheese and biscuits would be easy to provide. The night guard had very little information and certainly there's no information in the rooms or public areas. The night guard did not tell us that the clocks were changing in Chile that night. The house is beautiful, the location stunning, the tour charming but the welcome and the lack of information on arrival make it a very quirky place to stay
