We (a friend and I) booked 2 nights at Casa Newen. Adda et Luis, our hosts, arranged the transfer from the airport by Carlos. Perfect transfer, Carlos and Pedro were waiting for us at the expected time. Warm welcome, and the fresh kiwi juice was really appreciated after a 14h flight ! The flawless room with a nice balcony became ours, and we decided to come back here after our visit to Horcon and Valparaiso.
The breakfasts were generous and varied every days (fresh fruit, yoghurt, ham or delicatessen, cheese, warm bread and coffee). The house is located in a quiet neighbourhood close to the restaurants and coffee shops of Providencia.
When we came back from Valparaiso, my friend got very very sick. We had to go to the clinic and Adda came with us! She scrapped her Sunday afternoon with her family for us! She did really care for my friend's well being, just like a member of the family would do. I deeply thank her for that.
As we could no longer go to San Pedro de Atacama, we stayed in Casa Newen for the rest of our stay (a week, so we stayed there for 9 nights).
Adda and Luis counsels are great as well. For us, Adda arranged a private day to Banos Colina in the Cajon del Maipo (wonderful hot springs with a breathtaking view of the Andes) as well as a night trip to see the stars and the sky outside Santiago.
Really, a wonderful experience and I recommend Casa Newen to anyone planning a trip to Chile.
Ho! And do not miss the craftshop where you will find beautiful jewellery made by Adda herself. Personally, I do not wear necklaces, but they are gorgeous! I also had a "coup de coeur" for the ceramic dishes...
