Putre (Arica and Lauca, Chile)
A small hotel set in colourful gardens right at the edge of town with lovely views over the Andes mountain range. The hotel was built in a local Andean style with stones from the region.
A good base to explore Lauca National Park.
There are 10 identical rooms set in a courtyard around the garden. The rooms are a good size, comfortable with central heating, those at the far end of the hotel have nice views down the valley.
The position is not ideal, you are well away from Putre's colourful plaza opposite the army barracks but the rooms are comfortable and more importantly warm.
