Mountain retreat, or private beach....?

It's your choice. But after a hike in the mountains, and a night under canvas, we know there's nothing like coming back to a place you can call your own. Somewhere with a view over the hills you've just climbed, or a sandy lakeside beach to relax on.

That's why all of our accommodation is carefully chosen for it's beauty, tranquility and privacy.

In the Lake District, you'll be able to choose from various houses, some of which are pictured on the left. They range from romantic log cabins in the hills to family mansions on the lake.

Estancias

One of Patagonia's, Mendoza, or Cordoba's most memorable experiences is staying in an estancia. Barely changed over the centuries, these beautiful traditional farmhouses, are invariably run by the same families that built them, after their migration from Wales or Italy. All are rich in history and nature, and will give you an insight into the pioneering life at the bottom of the world.

Vineyards

Further north in Argentina, around Mendoza and Salta, there's always the option of staying in a vineyard posada. If you're wine tasting, this is a way to really experience the life of the bodega, and if you're not, then you'll still appreciate staying in one of Argentina's most spectacular properties, with stunning views to the mountains.
