Hoteliers Alex and Carrie Vik were so encouraged by the triumphant Chilean debut of Vik Chile – a vast estate set in a winery barely two-hours southwest from Santiago de Chile on Highway 5 – they decided to stage their sophomore effort literally down the hill.

Here, architect Marcelo Daglio has inserted 19 Miesian-like casas into the tree-line, orienting the glass walls and al fresco bathtubs outward towards greenery and majestic 180-degree views of the Millahue Valley below and the Andes in the distance.

Inside, each casa is tastefully themed to a specific aesthetic, and anchored by quiet visual references such as a Mondrian rug, holographic art, shoji screens and futon beds.

Meals are served up the hill at Vik Chile, where chef Rodrigo Acuña Bravo’s menu features produce harvested from the 11,000 acre grounds, and recent standouts have included a tenderloin of pistachio-crusted wild boar, and a delicate sliver of sole served with a sea-scented bisque, quinoa and organic grilled zucchini.
