Casa Higueras

Map
133 Calle Higuera, Valparaíso,

The Location: The stunning seaside town of Valparaíso, where the steep, zigzagging streets are dotted with colorful houses, is just two hours north of Santiago (the Spanish translation for the town’s name is “Paradise Valley”). Casa Higueras, which occupies a 1930s terraced mansion, is perched on a hillside with views over the Pacific Ocean.

Don’t Miss: Just an hour away in the village of Isla Negra is the former house (now a museum) of Nobel Prize–winning poet Pablo Neruda, whose tender, sensuous verses gave him a reputation as one of the world’s greatest love poets. For a rowdier day, head down the Casablanca Wine Route, 30 minutes from Valparaíso.
