Lo Barnechea

This the most northerly city, and most probably the poshest of all the metropolitan region. Most expat and wealthy families live in the north and west areas of this city, especially in the surroundings of the golf club of la Dehesa.

If you decide to search by yourself, it is recommended to stay away from certain districts. The Pueblito Cerro 18 (Juan Pablo II, Lomas I, Lomas II and Lomas Blancas) is an area where most of the population is underprivileged, which contrasts with the rest of the city. This area regularly faces violence between rival groups and hosts some traffics. Not very recommended.

In la Dehesa, the type of accommodation you can find here is mostly posh houses and flats in luxury condominiums

Average cost of accommodation in the area

  • 3-bedroom apartment: $800,000 to $1,500,000
  • Houses: $1,500,000 to $2,800,000 (and some luxurious mansions well above this range)
