Deep in the heart of the Uco Valley, a good hour’s drive from Mendoza, the Casa Antucura is a sumptuous boutique hotel and secluded country estate just outside the village of Vista Flores. Set amidst 94 hectares of rolling vines against a backdrop of distant snow-capped mountains, the unique hotel offers a luxurious, modern retreat elegantly furnished with stylish contemporary decor.
There are 8 spacious rooms which overlook the vineyards across to the mountains, all individually decorated and featuring mod cons such as flat screen TV’s and DVD players. Warm, bright and extremely comfortable, the suites are larger with oversized windows and generous bathrooms.
Centrepiece of the magnificent grounds, a 10 hectare private park and lake, there is an impressive pool ringed with sun loungers close to the rose garden. Inside, guests can sink into snug leather sofas around an open fire place while in the open gallery above, the hotel features a quite extraordinary library. Over 7000 volumes line the wood panelled walls beneath exquisite hand painted frescoes.
There is no dedicated restaurant though meals can be arranged in advance. Additional facilities include a jacuzzi, a sizeable wine cellar and home theatre room all displaying prominent local artwork throughout.
The Casa Antucura offers a slice of luxury in the Uco Valley and would particularly suit those travelling with a hire-car or interested in modern art and contemporary Argentine culture.
