This family run hotel is an absolute stunner. The grounds have beautifully designed luscious gardens with the main garden comprising a nice clean pool with tiled lounge area.
Our room, No. 3, was well sized and had a very lovely bathroom.
The family own several reasonably placid dogs, two mature cats and two kitten under a year old, all of whom roam around the premises available for much love and attention by all guests who appreciate animals.
The breakfast was a combination of the typically South American sweet style spread and the more savoury Continental style breakfast.
Teas, coffees and cold mineral water are all available free of charge throughout the entire day and the WiFi is reliable with a good signal.
When returning to Chacras de Coria (a suburb within the Mendoza province about 45 mins South of Mendoza airport, 120 pesos via taxi), we'll definitely return here to stay!
Discounts are offered on room rates if paying in cash.

... rate. We definitely found it weird and a bit unnerving at first to deal with these people- they usually lead you into a shop or a little office in a dark alley to hand over the money- but it is quite normal and they don't mess you around.
All this meant we were back to using our old friend cash for everything, a bit like Bolivia all over again! It certainly makes life cheaper in a relatively expensive country too.
After a relaxing few days enjoying ...
... some local food and music mixed in with a brief (2 hour total) walk out to some restored Incan ruins nearby. Oddly one of the most stand-out parts of the ruins is a pyramid that was constructed in honour of the archeologists that discovered the ruins which Kate found a little bit egotistical but was pretty nonetheless. In Purmumarca we made a small trek around the main attraction of the town, Cerro de Siete Colores, which is a magnificent ...
... rental for the day). But after reading some of the reviews on trip advisor about the road being very busy and some people being robbed en route by professional criminals specifically targeting the cyclists I decided to skip that tour and went online to do a bit of research. The top listed tour was Ampora so I contacted them on the Tuesday morning and within an hour I was booked on a tour (approx €120 which was the discounted rate for paying online). I was collected ...
