Chile's lake country is renowned for the pastoral fields and shining waters
of its many great bodies of water. But sticking near the well-traveled lake towns is only one way to experience the region's beauty. If you venture towards western Patagonia, you can discover the isolation and stunning sights of Isla Fresia.
Whether you're there to dive into activities like fishing and kayaking or simply need a few days to catch your breath during longer travels, our Isla Fresia vacation rentals provide all you need!
Life on Isla Fresia
Located in the center of Lago Puyehue, Isla Fresia has a nice balance of easy accessibility from the mainland, while still feeling far-removed from the comparative hustle and bustle of nearby cities. Whether you're admiring the distant peaks of the Andes Mountains, the shining waters of the lake, or the thick forests lying inland, you're sure to be blown away!
Of course, you shouldn't take in such amazing sights passively. Explore the waters of Lago Puyehue from a seat in a kayak or as part of a fishing charter. Take your special someone on a relaxing forest walk - or go hunting for something tasty to cook up back at your vacation home. Thanks to the island's sustainable farming practices and its use of renewable energy sources, you can enjoy every modern comfort back in your Isla Fresia rental.
Day Trips from Isla Fresia
If you ever yearn to explore the other sights of Los Lagos, you're only a brief boat ride from more adventure! The small town of Entre Lagos lies on the lake's western shore, with plenty of charming restaurants like Restaurant Miraflores to visit. A more bustling atmosphere lies in the city of Osorno
a short distance to the west.
Those wishing for a more scenic journey should travel to the fascinating towns both north and south. Pucón is several hours to the north
, near the exciting shores of Lago Villarrica. To the south, is the distant town of Puerto Varas
, where a combination of German and Chilean cuisine and architecture offers a truly unique experience.
It's a little off the beaten path, but the best sights usually are - and your next Chilean vacation deserves the best. Check out our Isla Fresia vacation homes and you'll see why it's ideal for your next getaway!
