Entering the properting you'd think you've arrived to paradise! The place is so beautiful. The garden with grass, a small swimming pool and an orchard with 10 different fruit trees. I counted them.. The rooms face the garden and the swimming pool. Breakfast, continental, is served in the dining room. The staff is charming and helpful. Jose Luis is present and ready to answer any questions and give advise. His English is perfect.
The rooms are spacious, clean and well provisioned. Both towels and linen are of good quality.
Jose Luis is a wonderful host. Other then what is expected from a host, recommending restaurants, bodegas, car rentals, bike rentals, etc. he went out of his way when I thought I had lost my credit card. He was on the phone for 2 hours, then he drove me to the bank twice, once to enquire if I had forgotten my card there and once to fetch my passport.
Posada Olivar is very well situated both for visiting bodegas and the center of town.. I was able to visit bodegas from the posada both by foot and by bike.
On evenings when I did not wish to go out for dinner I was able to have my dinner in the garden.It is very agreeable.
In addition, there is a kitchen where one can cook one's meals and there are a couple of supermarkets in Chacra.
There are plenty of restaurants nearby, from very simple to very luxurios ones, bars, cafes and a craft market on Sundays.
Public transportation is very convenient as well, only 3.20 pesos to central Mendoza and to the central bus station in Mendoza. The bus stop is around the corner from the Posada.
Due to internet problems in Argentina the reception is limited in the rooms and Jose Luis arranged a table for me near the modem in the garden next to the living room.
I should add that I travelled during the Argentine summer holidays and families with kids were present. Therefore, at times the place was a bit noisy. I would recommentd for those who wish to enjoy the total quieteness to avoid the school vacation. I'm sure that Jose Luis will provide the holiday dates.
