After an overnight stay in the BA aeroparque hotel, the gates of heaven opened when our taxi arrived at Posada Verde Oliva. Julia (the owner) greeted us personally and showed us to our beautiful room and the amazing posada and grounds that would be our home for the following few days.
We had dinner on our first night which was lovely and homely. They have their own vines on site so we sampled their own Malbec which I'd highly recommend!
We did a wine tour the next day which was quite a long day with lots of food and wine so it was great to be able to come "home" and relax on the sofa with a good book and an open fire (we were unlucky enough to be in town on 2 of the 40 days per year that it rains!). The fact that you can help yourself to water and fruit for free from the fridge just adds to that homely feel.
The next morning was more rain and the fire for the morning and then the sun came out and we lounged by the pool for the afternoon.
Julia, Karen, Samira, Monica and all the staff are so on the ball. They really strike the balance between leaving you in peace and ensuring your every need is met.
Top tips are to try the olive oil products Julia makes. My hair has never felt so soft. Also the wine region map in the lounge is beautiful and we purchased one of those too!
If you're looking for some relaxation time and a piece of home then book yourself in here!
