This wood–heated retreat features two private villas, which share a pool, hot-tub, and fantastic mountain views. Both villas have plenty of deck-space to let you gaze out over the River Maipo. If you’d like a little help organizing your Chilean adventure, Villa Puertazul’s managers can arrange everything from airport transfers to spa services to wine tasting parties for you. Just ask!

You might want to pick up a Lonely Planet guide to Chile before you go. Judy Steinfeld, Villa Puertazul’s owner, says that Buddhist chants remind her of the retreat. So take some deep breaths (or uncork that bottle of organic Chilean wine) and imagine yourself at Villa Puertazul.
