Bodega El Molino de Cachi
Ranked #9 of 9 Cachi B&B and Inns
Reviewed 3 June 2007

My partner and I are well-travelled through out Argentina and understand that the provinces may not always stand up to the cosmopolitan attitudes found in Buenos Aires, but nothing prepared us for the hostility and scorn the matron of El Molino cast upon us due to us being a male couple wishing to share the same bedroom (and bed). After numerous offensive attempts to convince us that we should sleep in separate quarters and pay for another room, she gave up and was simply rude and awkward with us. Aside from her apparent lack of cordiality to the concept of two men travelling as a couple, the place has a very colonial feeling to it - in a bad way. The servants are very servile, the atmosphere is stiff and uptight. The infrastructure and setting are all excellent and delightful, but Ms. Durand's Menem-era attitudes were simply unbearable. Not to mention the massive number of Catholic symbols everywhere, including the large and graphic crucifix over the bed.

If you're a family or straight couple, this place could work great for you. But we found it oppressive and uncomfortable, not to mention over-priced. We checked out a day earlier than planned, were forced to pay for nights not staying there and couldn't be more relieved when back on the road. With so many cool and hip options in the region, we'd really question why anyone would want to stay here.

More of a private house than a hotel a little way out of the town up a verdant valley towards the mountains. Comfortable bedrooms and sitting rooms. You breakfast in the mill room where a working wheel grinds maize for the neighbours. Pleasant grounds down to the stream and a lovely swimming pool next to the gushing mill leat. Dinner available if ordered in advance Not cheap by Argentinean standards (£57 per night for a double room)) but a little gem. Our mistake was only allowing one night
