BEST PLACES TO VISIT IN 2015 (#5 ELQUI VALLEY, CHILE)
nEW YORK TIMES , JANUARY 9, 2015
Stargaze — while you can — in Northern Chile.
The deserts of northern Chile, whose dry, clear skies and high altitude make for unmatched stargazing, have long been home to some of the world's largest research telescopes. Those stunning starscapes, as well as more down-to-earth charms, have lately proved a draw for travelers, too. The heart of the astrotourism boom is the Elqui Valley, a 100-mile strip of vineyards and orchards on the southern edge of the Atacama Desert, dotted with colonial towns and pisco distilleries. At least a half-dozen small observatories now cater to stargazers, while family-run hotels offer special domed and glass-ceilinged suites and in-room telescopes. But visit soon: Light pollution from new tourist infrastructure has already begun to dim Elqui's magnificent skies.
This a unique property, where you will find all the privacy you need with wonderful views of the Andes, the famous starry nites of the Elqui Valley, while enjoy the comfort of a 2 fully appointed houses, including fireplaces, swimming pool, ample gardens, and extra amenities that will make you stay a memorable experience. The 2 houses sleep 10 guest and potentially 3 others in built-in beds in the Cottage living room.
