Hotel Casa Real
Viña Santa Rita
The Hotel Casa Real is located on the Santa Rita Estate, and was formerly the summerhouse of the winery’s founder. Following restoration, it was converted into a hotel in the mid-1990s. Located in a 40-hectare park designed by leading French landscape gardener Guillaume Renner.
Its late 19th century classical style has been preserved, making it a historic monument and the only park of its kind in the country. Hotel Casa Real offers 16 beautiful rooms, fine dining, salons, and outstanding service, in a setting of absolute privacy and exclusivity. Alongside the hotel stands a Neo-Gothic chapel built in 1880 - like the mansion, it was designed by German architect Theodor Burchard.

Hotel Casa Real stands in the midst of a 40-hectare park, one of the largest and best-preserved in Central Chile. It was designed by the French landscape gardener Guillaume Renner as a setting for the summerhouse that was built by founder Domingo Fernández Concha.
The park’s design is rooted in its designer’s French aesthetics, but also integrates other styles that were in vogue at the time when it was created - the English and Italian styles. The latter is reflected mainly in its ornamental motifs such as statues, which include ‘The Boy Flautists’, ‘The Artful Boy’, and ‘The Four Seasons’, as well as a number of fountains and box hedge mazes, created in a pure Renaissance style. Meanwhile, the English aesthetic shines through in the long walks, avenues, and broad lawns.
Once the grand mansion had been completed, the architect was tasked with designing and building Santa Rita Chapel. The exterior is in the Gothic style, while the interior features Norman arches and vaulted domes in the Roman style. The images of saints that adorn the chapel walls are the work of one of Chile’s top painters of the era, Alfredo Valenzuela Puelma. Construction was completed in 1885, and the chapel became the main Catholic site for the Santa Rita Estate.
