Cantarias Lodge is a striking wooden structure peeping over the surrounding forest and alongside pretty Lake Puyehue in Chile’s lake district, with just a handful of simple guest rooms with woodland views.
The peaceful property is designed to be eco-friendly, hence there is no air-conditioning, TV or minibar; however as a base for fly-fishing, trekking, kayaking, photography tours and other outdoor activities it is very well positioned. After a day in the open air you can relax in the sauna or hot tub.
Cantarias is French-owned and the restaurant offers surprisingly sophisticated meals given its relatively remote location. There's a cosy bar and lounge area with a panoramic window from which you can observe the natural surroundings over a drink.
