Everything in the living/dining room is meant to make the most of the Elqui Valley experience.

The panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows let you enjoy the views of the mountains and the cloudless sky day and night.  The remote-controlled upper window shades allow you to regulate the amount of sunlight to suit your mood.  And the lower blinds close manually to give you complete privacy when you want it.

The exposed beams are made of native wood.  The double-height ceiling accommodates the tall windows and also cools the room, as does the ceramic floor (we have rugs for the "winter" months.) And the glass sliding doors connect you with the outdoors by opening to a patio that will soon be covered with jasmine.
