I wasn't sure what to expect from Finca Adalgisa as it's clearly very different from the other well known properties in the Mendoza area set amongst acres of vineyards. Nestled on the edge of the village of Chacras de Coria on a small parcel of land, it's true that it doesn't have the amazing views of the larger properties in the more rural areas but it has its own small vineyard and winery and a special charm that makes it unique. The property has been owned and run by three generations of the same family and there are individual touches throughout. I would definitely recommend staying in one of the Suites, which are rustic in style but feature all modern comforts. In the evenings guests can relax in the lovely lounge area and enjoy a complimentary glass of the hotel's own wine and a delicious tapa or head out to one of the local restaurants in Chacras.
