“Peace and quiet near Mendoza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2012

Finca Adalgisa is a very pleasantly appointed finca hotel in the village of Chacras de Coria about 12 miles from Mendoza. So discreet they do not have a sign. But enter through the iron gates into a delightful mainly single storey collection of stone buildings within a flourishing vineyard. The hotel accommodation has been laid out in an attractive garden setting with a very adequate swimming pool and terrace. Every leaf was swept away and the pool was sparkling.
Our room was very large, furnished in a rustic style with a separate sitting area. Not too smart but adequate, and value at the price. There is an open wood fire ready made for you to light if you wish, we did as the Mendoza nights can be chilly although there are gas heaters also which we did not need to use. There is the most discreet kitchenette facility in the room hidden in a cupboard with a proper fridge -not minibar, and even a small gas ring for heating a traditional kettle for hot drinks. Apart from the charming breakfast service the finca does not have a full restaurant service so a walk into the village will provide cheap and excellent quality provisions to make your own snacks and picnics.
Every night from 6.00pm until 11.00pm they will offer you a complmentary generous glass of malbec with a tapas plate. If you like more you can purchase it along with a further choice of tapas quite adequate for a supper, especially if you have had a good lunch.
The reception is very helpful and they will recommend restaurants, arrange winetours, or draw you maps to the wineries they will book at your request. There is free wifi which worked very nearly all the time in our room, but sometimes the internet to the whole area is slow-it's the country.
The village of Chacras de Coria is about ten minutes walk away although the footpaths are not always made up- this is the country still. The village thrives on tourists although they don't seem to be in abundance. The result is a collection of good restaurants-'Nadia's' is very good, patisseries, wine shops, and a deli, but still there are regular butchers, grocers, a bakery, a bank with ATM, and a small supermarket. There is a small antiques market on Sunday.
This is a complete wind down destination and far preferable to staying in Mendoza itself.
Tip: I think it is best to hire a car. We did and it doesn't take long to get used to the style of local driving. Most people drive slowly and an uncertain tourist is not much different from a local. Mendoza is busy at times but not always. The hotel will email you good directions from the airport to the hotel. A car is useful because the wineries are spread well around, the restaurants all serve wine by the glass, and as long as you are sensible you will be OK. Simply keep the mountains on one side and 'Route 40' on the other and you will always know where you are. Or at least you won't be lost for long. Remember, it is essential to book winery and restaurant visits in advance even though notice can be short. The hotel will do this for you.

Stayed here as part of a prepaid tour. Got in from an entire day of flying, after 9 pm and were thrilled to find that the free wine and tapas in the vineyard was still available. A perfect way to unwind from the travel travails! This is a nightly offering, with wine and olive oil from their own property, local cheeses and great bread one night, tomatoes, artichokes, goat cheese spread and bread the next night. Really a good thing because, although it's walking distance to the little town of Chacras de Coria, I wouldn't want to do it at night. Didn't see much there anyway. The rooms are charming if a little rustic. Old and charming sometimes means not particularly efficient which was the case with our toilet. But the people couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. There are several large dogs on the property - they don't take any note of the guests but be aware if you have a problem with dogs.

After a brief stop in Valparaiso this was our first experience of Argentina and it was fabulous and spoilt us. We had three nights and it was great but be careful it gets hot and although the pool is great we could only spend time there early and late in the day.
We did the cookery course just the four of us outside and I'm no cook but it was great fun as we made our own empenadas and the Christina the chef did these huge steaks it was great.
Every evening you can sit as the sun goes down with a free glass of Malbec from their own vines - heaven.
It was also nice to take the 20 minute walk into the small village of Chacras and made you feel you were in the real Argentina rather than the big tourist destinations.
Our room in this old farmhouse was spacious and rustic and the service was impeccable.
The best stay on our trip.
PS Don't have the free nibbles on an evening if you're doing the cookery course - you won't be able to eat all the wonderful food.

Room Tip: We had room 14 ok a bit of road noise but not a problem and a huge room handy for breakfast

We recently stayed at Finca Adalgisa for the first few days of our honeymoon. The location is beautiful with a great pool and clean, well equipted rooms. The hotel is close to several resturants and the staff were exceptionally helpful. We would highly recommend staying here.

We stayed for a few days in December / January including New Year's day. Noisy location just off a main road (a fact you would not be able to appreciate from the advertised photos) and very overpriced.

Good breakfast offering with fresh fruit, great coffee and cooked breakfast on demand. Very poor lunch menu and service, shortage of staff (and menu ingredients) during the day, also affecting whatever pool service they offer particularly at siesta time (and when replenishing the boiling communal jug of water would come handy). Staff also seemed as trying hard but not really engaged or well trained. Pool area ok but pool was not as clean as I would have liked.

Had some issues with the room which required interacting with the owner and were appalled by her attitude and lack of interest in understanding our concerns. Our expectations of service and cordiality for a nearly USD400/night room were not satisfied by a long distance. Front desk staff was very helpful though and really tried to compensate as much as they could, but your are better off avoiding the lady owner if you dont want your day spoiled!

The grounds are very well kept and the rooms are OK but dont expect luxury or attention to detail in the decor, general construction and quality of materials is low end for the price. The bed and linen was good however.

The mini bodega area also very nice, but close to the road so a bit too noisy for the experience. We were shown the place during the first night but didnt think of going back.
Expensive lunch/snacks menu, and everything charged in USD at "Four Seasons" prices.

We would not go back. During our stay we discovered plenty of other more attractive, better priced and more welcoming places that do more justice to Mendoza and its people.

Room Tip: Definitely avoid the place during Xmas/ NYE, big party at the neighbours which lasted until 9am!

As soon as you arrive to be welcomed by the staff, you feel so happy to be at Finca Adalgisa, usually following either a long or short flight. The grounds are a feast for the eyes, surrounded as you are by vineyards, fruit trees and flowers. Our room sat right in front of the charming pool, and I felt like I could stay for a month! The breakfast, while providing Argentina's ever-present ham and cheese platter, also offers fruits, a selection of house-made peserves, specialty breads, fresh squeezed juices and eggs to order. The staff will help you organize your wine-tasting forays and a driver if you don't have a car. A wine-tasting retreat behind the vineyard offers satisfying , light dinner options in case you've dined out enough for the day--we always choose it for dinner. This is the third time I've been in four years and I hope to return. An extra note: I left my earrings there, and the Finca searched for them until they not only found them but sent them on to Buenos Aires for me!

A very unassuming hotel (about 8 guest rooms), Finca Adalgisa had everything we look for in a wine region stay.

About a 20 mins drive from Mendoza, Fina Adalgisa is a hidden gem. The hotel is well laid out around the small vineyard. It has a beautiful swimming pool, charming on site winery (where there are tastings each night) and is home to an excellent (and not to mention tasty)cooking class!

We arrived well before check-in (about 9am) and from the moment we arrived the hotel staff were very pleasent and helpful (particularly Jessica). Even though we should have only been checking in at 2pm, the hotel did their best to get our room turned around from the guests who were leaving, and whilst waiting we were offered breakfast, informed of the best places/wineries to visit locally and provided with towels and a spot to change/shower if we wanted a swim.

We booked a standard room which was more than adquate. It was spacious with a very comfortable bed. The room opened out onto a long patio, stretching along the front of the neighbouring rooms, looking out across a small lawn to the pool and across the vines.

Our first night we particpated in the cooking class, which was great, although more of a demonstration. This is a must (in our mind) if you are staying, altough it fills up fast so book ahead.

In the evennigs you have an opporuntity to have a glass of Finca Adalgisa's wine, while chating to the other guests and again looking over the wines.

The local square/villiage is within easy walking distance (10-15mins), and the wineries can be reached by bike (available free of charge at the Finca), or short car trip.

Unfortunately, of the 2 days we were there, one was a Sunday when a lot of the wineries are closed. So make sure if you are staying for a weekend, that you visit most of the wineries on the Saturday. The hotel however did ring around for us to find out who was open and when, so we could still visit a couple.

All-in-all, we would highly recommend a stay at Finca Adalgisa.
