We have spent 5 days there. This place is magic, perfect and "muy precioso". The cabins are confortable and the interection with nature and Llanquihue Lake is awesome. Another important remark is the owner: Javiera. She made everything to make sure that our stay there would be as special as possiblr, including: fire starting, local tips and a delicious homemade bread! I strongly recommend Bordemundo as destination, it is not only a cultural but also a human experience!
As others have noted the welcome from our host Javiera was wonderful. Our cabin with its rustic appeal complete with log burner overlooked the lake and Volcano Osorno. The private path and rickety steps down to the lakeside revealed stunning views across gin clear water. Javiera's breakfast rounded off a perfect one night stay. Shame it was just one night.
Rustic charm and great hospitality
Javiera and Lathan have created a tiny paradise for adventuresome travelers to Southern Chile. The large property has a rural feeling but is just a few minutes east of Puerto Varas, on the main road. Easy access by car, taxi or bus. The two rental cabins sit above the gigantic lake, itself in an eons old caldera ringed by gigantic volcanoes and beautiful hills. The cabins are rustic, but have every amenity including kitchen, dining room, living room, bath with shower and two bedrooms. Javiera's breakfasts are completely homemade, frequently with local foods, honey, bread and jam. Puerto Varas is a charming town, busy in summer, with lots going on in the main square and surrounds. But we enjoyed staying at Bordemundo, where I counted two dozen species of nesting or resident birds, saw many butterflies and wildflowers, and enjoyed sunrise and sunset on the lake and illuminating the volcano to the east.
