The Ranch

Antilco is a mountain ranch, located 12 km outside of Pucón, nestled between the banks of the Liucura River and the foothills of the "Cerros de Quelhue" Forest Reserve. On the ranch we work on 46 ha/113 acres, including pasture land and forests which we share with our 21 horses. Besides growing vegetables and fruit for our own needs, we find time and space to raise chicken and ducks under natural conditions. In 2014 we added bees.

Where are we?

If you drive your own car - Antilco on WAZE

trunk with antilco written on it Drive from Villarrica to Pucón, at the entrance of Pucon there is a roundabout . You drive straight towards “Caburgua”, on the next roundabout you keep straight, still “Caburgua”. About 1 km later turn left off the paved road where it says “Aeropuerto” (airport), and follow the signs to "Quelhue." After 1km you reach a new bridge that’s crossing Trancura River, about 200 meters after the bridge on the T-junction you turn right to "EL Christo" and then you follow this scenic road for 4 km until you see the Antilco painting on a trunk on the right hand.
