An Estancia in Mendoza that is situated up  a long winding stone track, nestled beside a stream in amongst the towering Andes. It is an old estancia though the house has recently been rebuilt and it is exceptionally comfortable, matching perfectly the wonderful hospitality of the Boehler de Palma family – Analicia’s cooking, in particular, is fantastic.
