Bernacchi House is at the northern tip of Maria island in the World Heritage-listed settlement of Darlington. It was built in 1843 for Reverend Thomas Dove and his wife and was acquired by an enterprising 19th-century Italian settler, Diego Bernacchi in the mid-1880s. Bernacchi established a small cement works on the island and also planted a vineyard but that proved to be unsustainable.
Although it has since been restored, Bernacchi House still rests on a foundation of red bricks handcrafted by convicts on the island.

“My wife and I wanted to travel through Chile, Bolivia and Peru and were slightly daunted by the logistics of organising such a varied trip.John Resse, USA
Chris was incredibly helpful not only mapping out the most exciting and engaging trip, but also using his extensive personal knowledge of the best things to do. They were reassuringly efficient in organising the trip, monitoring how we were doing during the trip and making adjustments to improve the trip.Tracy Williams, UK
Chris’s passion and enthusiasm encouraged us to do things we wouldn't have thought to do, which gave us fantastic memories of the trip of a lifetime.”Tony Thomas, USA
