Originally the homestead of one of Puyuhuapi's founders, Casa Ludwig is an inviting Bed and Breakfast run by its owners, Luisa Ludwig and James Falkowski.

The charming, well-cared-for house, made entirely of select native woods, was built about 50 years ago and is today recognized as a Chilean historic monument. Luisa’s father Ernst, the builder and a member of the original colony, had carefully chosen a location having a view of Puyuhuapi fiord and the surrounding Andes mountains. The house was known for its spacious living room that made it the perfect gathering place for meetings and celebrations. Now, we would like to welcome you.

Come and enjoy the warm and informal atmosphere of Casa Ludwig. We offer 10 rooms ranging from singles to rooms large enough for a family of five. Most have private baths. Breakfast is served with fresh, ground coffee and home-baked whole grain bread.

Our Village - Puyuhuapi

This small village of 600 inhabitants was founded in 1935 by four young Germans who came to settle in the previously unexplored forest at the end of the Bay (see History).

The town is easily accessible via the Carretera Austral from Coyhaique to the south or Chaitén and Futaleufu to the north and is approximately 200 Km from each. The town is nearly surrounded by Queulat National Park.

NOTE: There are no ATMs or banks from Coyhaique to the northern end of our region. Most shops, buses, and services accept only Chilean Pesos.
