I am German and as such always ready to find a hair in every soup. The short story: here I did not find any.
The equivalent to an american "great" would be a german "nice", but here even I must say "great".
Claudia, Aurelio and their partners have created a place in - excuse me - the middle of nowhere. We stumbled upon it looking for a place to stay for the night. The ambience is one of rural simplicity mixed with a bit of country club elegance, decorative elements mixed into the furniture reflect traditional lifestyle, huge leather sofas and big fireplaces look inviting, each detail is carefully chosen, the view out over the terrace straight into the Andes is magnificent.
We were disappointed to hear that the place was completely booked for the next two months - fortunately Aurelio agreed to give us a new Clay-Cabaña that was just about ready to be opened.
We had an excellent Asado-Diner, even the napkins smelt fantastic, the local wine Aurelio recommended to accompany the meat was excellent and his attention to our table was very good as well.
Later we slept in total silence - you could barely hear a little creek nearby, which added to the sound atmosphere of the place.
Breakfast was complete and well prepared. If you order "yoghurt", you get a delicacy made of yoghurt, honey, brown sugar and glazed walnut. Claudia throws in some sweet pastry that she makes herself, we even had ham and cheese (indispensable for Germans to be happy in the morning).
Before we left, Aurelio announced our visit to friends of his, who run a bodega nearby (which was also an excellent experience) and gave us tips for the rest of our journey. Altogether we felt, we had been received like personal friends. What more can you ask for.
