Even though our stay at Las tacanas estancia was a while ago (end of 2011), we keep on thinking about our super memorable stay at LT! Not only were we struck by the absolute beauty of the place - the lovely renovated adobe house, filled with beautiful antiques, a wonderful garden and surroundings of mountain ranges, but we have also had the best company one could wish for. Monica was a very welcoming and warm host, and very hard working. Our stay felt as if we were welcomed by a family, and not as paying guest.
The house consists of the main premises, which has an age-old feel and is decorated with taste, antiques and old jesuit artifacts. There is a garden behind the main building, that is surrounded by the rooms, of which we rented one. The room was very comfortable, good bed, lovely linen with the initials LT embroidered in them, and good bathroom with a bath and beams on the ceiling. we immediately fell in love with it. The room has no TV. which we liked.
Breakfast was also great, there was fresh fruit salad, bread with cheeses and meat, coffee and freshly squeezed orange juices. It was such a relief to have a fresh and proper breakfast in Argentine, we had it with the common mini-croissant and dulce de leche after a few weeks of travel. The room for breakfast was beautiful, old paintings and a collection of antique plates on the wall, just very pretty.
As said, we felt like family there. We were invited up on a horseback ride into the mountains, where we drank mate with the guys, the typical ' Argentinean things' except from the fact that we didn't have to pay more than the locals and we never ever felt like tourists doing them (well, only when our horses had the best of us...). We met some great people, and made some good music until late in the night, at the house's asado. Some of the best memories from our journey in Argentina were made at Las Tacanas. It is amazing how relaxed the atmosphere was and the people were without being pretentious ( or hippies:))
If we could ever have a home in Argentina it would be Las Tacanas. Highly recommended!!
