Nestled amidst lush rolling vineyards against a dramatic backdrop of snowy mountains and coppery canyons, the Patios de Cafayate is a sumptuous, stately mansion and Wine spa at the heart of the Calchaquies Valleys just outside Cafayate.
Rising from the ashes of the historic Estancia La Rosa, the hotel threw open its doors in 2005 charmingly restored to its former glory. Colonial splendour reigns throughout from elegant, antique furniture and silverwork to the handcrafted wool carpets and pretty cobbled patios.
Home comforts meet traditional decor in the 32 spacious rooms and suites, most located in the original Sepulveda wing of the house. Spread across 5 categories, the rooms overlook the gardens or vines and are warmly furnished with standard mod cons including flat screen TV’s and Wi-Fi.
The elegant restaurant offers fine dining with traditional regional dishes including goat and even llama accompanied by fresh local ingredients perfectly matched by wines from the neighbouring El Esteco estate.
Wine also forms the base of a number of unique treatments at the hotel’s spa which prides itself on its range of services and massages. In addition there is a hydrotherapy bath and a sparkling outdoor pool.
The Patios de Cafayate is the height of refined elegance around Cafayate and the most comfortable base from which to explore the surrounding canyons and vineyards. The atmosphere is more formal yet the services, cuisine and wine are excellent.
