From the Patagonia Lodge and Villas premises, you can enjoy imposing views of the Torres del Paine peaks and Lake Sarmiento. The chosen location is protected from the strong Patagonian winds by a luxuriant native forest of local species of beeches called lengas and ñirres.
Surrounding the Patagonia Lodge and Villas, the indigenous fauna remains intact in these forests and plains, where there are sightings of guanacos, ñandús (rheas), foxes, condors and, occasionally, pumas.
The strategic location of Patagonia Lodge and Villas allows you to enjoy the Torres del Paine National Park from the privacy of our lodge.
A few meters away from the villas are the common areas overlooking the majestic scenery. The main house includes the restaurant, reception desk and comfortable lounges. Protecting the environment and surroundings, our buildings are made of local procured wood, allowing the structures to blend into the incomparable natural landscape.
Inspired by old Patagonian shelters and ranching outposts, we have built only twelve villas (one of them with two suites) in our private reserve. These are distributed in such a way as to ensure the utmost privacy and also offer the best views of the forest, Lake Sarmiento, the pampas and Torres del Paine.
Torres del Paine National Park is considered to be one of the most emblematic sites of Chilean Patagonia. It dazzles its beholder with its magnificent scenery of jagged mountains and its lakes of glacial origin with ever-changing turquoise hues.
Our restaurant, for the exclusive use of guests staying at the Patagonia Lodge and Villas, invites you to experience the delights of the menu designed by Chef Federico Ziegler (*) featuring Patagonian gastronomy with the culinary excellence that distinguishes us as members of Relais & Chateaux.
The resort is operated in a manner that is safe for the wildlife, the land, and the environment.
Over 500 years after the arrival of the first European seafarers in Patagonia, the words to describe it are the same as those used by the first explorers and naturalists: exotic, faraway, vast, infinitely beautiful, wild, indomitable.
Situated in the heart of the National Park, the Torres del Paine mountains are one of the main attractions of the region and an icon of Chilean Patagonia.
Here, you are at one with the wild. The immensity of the ice floes, the majesty of the mountains and the expanse of the lakes are a constant source of wonderment.
The idea of being an explorer in the 21st century is a reality here. From a labyrinth of fjords with imposing glaciers and extensive forests to interminable steppes and crystal-clear waters, Patagonia is one of the few places in the world that are still unchanged.

FLORA AND FAUNA
The Torres del Paine National Park habitat melds together a wide array of ecosystems, making it a treasure for Chilean wildlife. Its 242,000 hectares provide shelter to over 120 avian species, 272 plant species and 25 mammal species. Distinctive among these are the puma, which is active mostly in the evening and at night; guanacos and ñandús that graze in groups in the steppes, and the symbols of the Chilean national emblem: the condor, one of the largest birds in the world, and the huemul, an elegant deer in danger of extinction.
This biodiversity of glaciers, mountain ranges, forests and waterfalls give rise to a vast array of plant communities that are found in four main biotic areas: the Patagonian steppes, represented by cushions of plants and grasses that adorn the paths with green and brown hues; the pre-Andean brush, where you can see notros (Firebush) and calafates (Chil. berberis); the Magellanic forest that surprises you with the height of its lenga, ñirre and coigüe beech trees; and finally, the Andean desert with its frutillas del diablo (Devil’s strawberry) and llaretas (Andean cushion), mountain species that grow thanks to the ice-melts and abrupt changes of temperature.
The Aónikenk or “people of the south”, better known as Patagones or Tehuelches, were first sighted in 1526, giving rise to the name of the region: Patagonia. Like all nomadic peoples, the Patagones covered extensive distances to hunt different animals that were the basis of their nutrition, clothing and weapons.
This people attributed a religious nature to the Torres area, leading them to name it “Payne” (“Blue” in Tehuelche).
Over the centuries and with the cultural changes introduced by the new immigrants, the Tehuelche people disappeared as a race at the beginning of the 20th century, but their features are still present in the gauchos and inhabitants of this extreme corner of the planet.
Another major indigenous group were the Kawéskar or Alacalufes – fishermen, hunters and nomads who were incredibly adapted to this hostile habitat. The Alacalufes lived close to the Patagonian seas up to the beginning of the 20th century, when for similar reasons as the Tehuelches, they gradually disappeared.
