Real Estate for sale, Chile

This property is located just 10 minutes from the centre of Santa Cruz. It is suitable for growing vines and fruit trees. The neighbouring properties are cultivated with a variety of crops.

Santa Cruz is a beautiful, quiet agricultural town with a nascent tourism industry with massive potential. It is similar to Sonoma in Napa Valley, California, just with a little less glitz. The landscape around is also strikingly similar to Napa Valley. New restaurants are opening and boutique country hotels are also being established by both Chilean and foreign investors. Over the next few years, it is highly likely that Santa Cruz will boom and land values will increase dramatically. Santa Cruz is just 2 and a quarter hours from Santiago by perfectly maintained motorways and country roads. The town has a new hospital, a large Lider supermarket and is considered one of the safest places to live in the region. Many of Chile’s finest red wines come from the area, including Wine Spectator’s wine of the year for 2008, the Clos Apalta.
