Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

The weather is good almost all year round in Salta and the north west in general. It’s warm and dry in winter (June to September) though it gets cold at night. Summer (December to February) is hot and there’s no air conditioning in most rooms. Avoid the rainy season of February to March, when many of the roads to places you'll want to explore may be impassable due to flooding.

Description

Vinas de Cafayate Wine Resort is located on vineyards at the foot of the impressive San Isidro Hill in Cafayate in the stunningly rugged northwest of Argentina and provides a comfortable base to visit one of the country's most important wine regions.

In this small colonial town there are vineyards and wine cellars galore - a wonderful location from which to explore the best that Argentina has to offer in wines.

The guest rooms have access to a spacious covered balcony overlooking the vineyards, granite hills, and Cafayate Canyon. There is a comfortable lounge with fireplace and library, an interior courtyard, a swimming pool and spacious solarium in the garden.

The cuisine is regional and international with, of course, an exceptional wine list of local wines. The garden grows its own organic vegetables. Cafayate takes two hours by plane from Buenos Aires and is a two and a half hour drive from the city of Salta.
