Estancia Altos del Durazno
Reviewed 25 September 2013

We had a great but all too short stay at the Estancia in late August. Quiet, peaceful, a beautiful setting, great walks, excellent hosts and so close to San Luis. We especially enjoyed the dark cold nights. We would definitely return.

If you are looking for a great place where to stay close to San Luis than this is it. Ask Alfredo and Patricia to take you for a full day excursion (horse riding ...) in the surrounding mountains. Don't miss a nice swim in the river below the cabins, the water is pure and not too cold.

Estancia Altos del Durazno offers five very attractive cabanas, spaced out in the hills of the vast Argentine Sierra. Each stone cabana is very well designed, has a kitchenette and nice bath, and is built with aesthetic touches such as polished stone in the bathrooms. I believe Canada Honda is the choicest one as it's in the flat valley with a mountain stream running by the terrace, but each is private and has trees and flowers around the building. Owners Patricia and Alfredo and their staff were extremely helpful, patient and attentive. As we had no car we asked for meals to be brought to us; they were delivered by ATV, still warm and always delicious. And, as horseback riding is not actually at the estancia, Alfredo happily drove us to a splendid place where we enjoyed a 2 hour ride through stunning countryside on excellent horses.

This estancia is a great place and we highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Canada Honda, for 4 -5 people has a stunning setting. We also love our Loma Vieja, for 2 people.

My time in this place was magical, it highly exceeded our expectations. I felt like I was in 'the little house on the prairie' in the 19th century... There was no plastic, no reminder of our contaminated and stressing life. Everything in the cottage was hand-made, cozy and beautiful. There was nothing in it to remind us we were in a 'hotel'. However, we had all the comforts we needed - microwave, heater, fridge, Tv, etc.- The owners are great, they are professionals who made the wise choice of the natural life. They speak several languages and are most helpful and welcoming. Very smart people. I can't really think of anything that needs improvement there, everything was perfect.
I never go to the same place twice as I like visiting new places. BUT all I can say now is next time I visit Argentina I will definitely spend some time in Altos del Durazno. It is the ideal place to remind ourselves of the simplicity and beauty of nature and life. A place that really makes you stop and smell the roses.

Our stay at Estanzia Altos del durazno was fantastic it was like going back 100 years. The owners Patricia and Alfredo are professionals who have created an idyllic holiday destination where the stresses of our workaday lives just disappeared. These timeless stone cottages are distanced from each other to give a feeling that the whole 600 hectares belonged to us, they are simply furnished with rustic handcrafted furniture, and beautiful quilts and blankets made by Patricia. They are comfortable and cosy with electric heating and an open fireplace for winter, we actually had a fire one chilly evening as it can get cool at night, even in November due to the mountain climate. A Breakfast of home made bread and jams with coffee delivered each morning by the lovely owners was perfect after the soundest sleep.
From the privacy of our cabin there were amazing views of the picturesque hills with friendly grazing horses and the occasional gray fox, there are also archeological sites of indigenous refuges that were amazing to discover and explore across the miles of open landscape. There are also miles of river and rock pools to explore and swim in, We also loved the birdlife, our favorite sightings were Woodpeckers and Hummingbirds right outside our cabin.
On the way into the property there is a lady who has a farm gate store and sells very tasty jams, salamis and the best honey I have ever tasted.
