Clos Apalta Residence


The Relais Chateaux Clos Apalta Residence is part of the exclusive Clos Apalta winery which is owned by the Marnier-Lapostolle family of Grand Marnier fame. It is located outside the town of Santa Cruz, about 2 hours 30 minutes of Santiago in Colchagua Valley.

There are just four luxurious casitas nestled into the forested hills with wonderful views of the Apalta vineyards and the mountains beyond. All have a private terrace and garden.

The restaurant serves a seasonal menu using products from their own organic vegetable garden, as well as from local produce markets.

During a stay at Clos Apalta Residence enjoy wine tours, explore the vineyards on horseback or mountain bike, hike in the forested Apalta hills, and visit nearby Santa Cruz town with its typical craft shops and the Colchagua Museum, the largest private museum in Chile.


Restaurant, living room, wine tasting and conference room, outdoor pool, in room massages, and yoga classes.

I last used Reef and Rainforest 11 years ago when we went to Costa Rica. Once again we were very impressed with the level of organisation and attention to detail. Hopefully we will be using the company again.
