Estancia Tercera with views of the Towers
Typical of the estancias of the area, Estancia Tercera (pictured above and right) is a working sheep ranch situated in an enviable position on the Park borders offering fantastic views of the granite Towers and mountains of the Paine Massif. With land extending to 6,454 hectares it now offers high quality accommodation close to Torres del Paine National Park in addition to its continuing work rearing sheep in the traditional way.

This wonderful authentic estancia house is a great alternative to some of the mainstream Park hotels. Offering an intimate, personal experience you will be looked after by Juan and Carmen who are proud to share this, their home with guests.

It is a perfect base from which to enjoy one of nature's finest adventure playgrounds a short distance away. Torres del Paine offers an abundance of activities including world class hiking, horse riding, fishing, photography, sightseeing, kayaking and boat rides.

Alternatively it is possible to just relax and explore the vicinity of the estancia or take part in traditional ranch activities such as horse riding or sheep wrangling.

There are three options for your stay here. Either book your required number of nights and corresponding meals and explore the area independently in your own hire car, join one of our fully inclusive stays for a minimum of 3 nights or book the entire house and enjoy a fully staffed personal house party Patagonia style.

Note there is no public transport to Estancia Tercera.

Accommodation

This rustic ranch with a friendly and cosy atmosphere sleeps just 14 guests in 7 pretty bedrooms in the casa patronal (main house). Accommodation consists of: 2 doubles; 3 twins each with private bathroom; 1 twin with shared bathroom and a Patagonian caravana suitable for a single person with private bathroom.

Facilities include: Central heating; large, light living room for relaxation/reading with comfortable sofas, log fire and tall floor to ceiling windows taking full advantage of the incredible views to the west; bar area for enjoying pisco sours and local wines. 

Outside there are buildings associated with the farm together with a traditional quincho where guests can enjoy a lamb asado. This very Patagonian method of cooking involves the organic lamb being cooked outside on an open fire which produces a mouth watering flavour. The lamb is then served with a simple green salad and home grown potatoes, all washed down with some of Chile's renowned vino tinto.

Meals are taken in the attached dining room also with spectacular views of the Towers. Here the estancia staff will take great care of you. Organic meat and produce, home baked breads and pastries, fresh jams and preserves made with fruit from the garden and lots of tasty Chilean cooking. The estancia also stocks a selection of wine and beer and of course the local pisco sour drink. 

Traditional gaucho barbeques under the stars are arranged on a regular basis.
