Tucked away on the northern corner of the majestic and remarkably undisturbed Big Island of Chiloé, this exquisite piece of land overlooking the Pacific seashore in the Bay of Ancud feels like a serene and remote sanctuary while remaining only a 15 km/18-minute drive from the island's ferry landing (and future Chacao Channel bridge) in one direction, and the quaint city of Ancud in the other. A land of myths and legends, culinary traditions, and unique folklore, Chiloé is considered a gateway to Patagonia and is home to a vast, wild, evergreen ecosystem, which includes a 300,000-acre wildlife preserve, rich cultural traditions and cuisine, and several UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
This striking 5-hectare site is situated in an area known as Pugueñún, a quiet and calm hamlet and home to friendly locals working in agriculture, fishing, and ancient artisanal skills like basket weaving and wool crafts. Perfect for long walks, birdwatching, organic farming, and horse rides along the shore, Pugueñún sees little tourist presence. Thus, its boundless scenic beauty encompassing extensive deserted beaches, imposing cliffs, and wetland lagoons remains intact. Wild ducks, river otters, herons, black-necked swans, the Chilean flamingo, and other striking birds reside here, as do dolphins and blue whales, who make themselves known during some parts of the year.
A privileged location for its accessibility, privacy, and natural geographical protection, this plot is perfect for a boutique hotel development project or multi/single-family compound. Utility (electric and water) connections are set and ready to connect.
About Chiloé: A storied enclave that has seen everything from Spanish and British colonial battles to German settlers and Dutch pirates, fabled warlocks, and the cultivation of the world's most common potato since before the Spanish conquest, the Chiloé Archipelago of Chile's Lake Region is replete with wildlife and stunning natural landscapes and is considered a nature lover's paradise. The northern half of the Big Island of Chiloé—where this lot is located—comprises rolling hills: a mosaic of pastures, forests, and sheep-speckled, cultivated fields reminiscent of the British countryside and New Zealand. The southern half is a wilderness of contiguous forests, wetlands, fjords, and mountains running along its spine.
