Though the view from the Belfry of the Beaguinage probably isn't covered by those.

I agree that the Beguinage qualifies. The belfry isn't contiguous with it and they are both inscribed twice (with Bruges WHS), but this is does not affect their viewablity from each other.

was also wondering if you can see the Reims cathedral from any of the champagne caves. I imagine you'd be able to see the top of it from some of them.

We already had this one connected: from Parc de la Butte Saint-Nicaise (St Nicase Hill) you can see the Basilique of St Remi (is actually in Buffer zone of Champagne WHS).

Another one I thought of: you can see Huáscaran National Park from the Chavín de Huantar ruins

I can confirm today that Waterton-Glacier is visible from the observation area at Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump, and not just from the parking lot.

Also, Huascaran and Chavin seems like it would make sense; good thinking.

I am not sure that from Glover House (part of Meiji Sites) can see the spire of Oura Cathedral (part of new Hidden Christian sites) or not. But I remember that on the escalator partway that built next to Glover House from the park entrance, I could see Oura on the left and Glover House on the right in the same time.

From Google Street view - you can see the Oura spire . There may be better views elsewhere inside the Gardens but Street view doesn't follow all the paths inside!

I don't think that green copper spire is Oura, such building is red brick so possible the near Catholic church. Oura should be white.

You are correct - I got carried away when I saw a spire! I have checked all my photos from c 7 years ago taken from the lookout balconies within the Glover Garden and they only show the harbour, bay and bridge. Whether that was because one couldn't easily "see" further right, around the "corner" to Oura or it just didn't seem an interesting photo I don't know.

Picture number 31 taken from Glover Garden clearly shows the top of Oura Cathedral.

Importantly the hills behind are inscribed and they can clearly be seen from the Villa, even if I can't make out a distinct vineyard.

I have been looking on pictures on the web and could find no proof. It seems the villa is located low at the lakeside with views towards the lake but none towards the vineyards. Does anyone have a photo showing otherwise?
The same is true from the vineyards towards the villa.

I am not too sure. It seems Chavin de Huantar is located on a slope on the "wrong" side of a smaller mountain barring any views of the higher mountains of the Huascaran NP beyond its top, or at least so it seems to me.

Agree - you are in front of the entrance to the site in this link and can swivel 360 degrees - there is no view beyond the valley. You can "travel" 20 kms further south to the borders of the NP by following the main road but it is a very twisty road with climbs etc etc -

Another view from INSIDE . Again try 360 degrees ??

This panorama is just outside the villa, but I think gives a good impression of the view back towards the vineyards. I'm not sure if that is an actual roof garden on top or not (it is one of leCorbu's five points but I can't see if there are any examples of it being used as such. Edit The Third image here suggests it is used as such, but shows the view of the garden and lake) but if so then the view of the vineyards should be even clearer than in the panorama.

Scrap the roof terrace angle, on this lake level photo you can still pick out the vineyards.

This is the best view I can find from the vineyards, I would say the buildings in-between stop there being any view of the Villa from the hills, but it may be possible from somewhere.
