El Cortijo Hotel Boutique
Cachi, Salta and Jujuy, Argentina
At a Glance
Unique boutique hotel, converted from a traditional colonial house - think whitewashed walls and terracotta floors laden with pots of cacti
Funky Andean artwork adorns the adobe walls and colourful local textiles cover the tiled floors - it’s all very laid-back and relaxing
Located in the charming sleepy village of Cachi some four hours drive from Salta - it's remote but worth the picturesque journey alone
Explore the Pre-Hispanic village (five minutes away by foot) and its collection of churches and museums or head into the mountains or vineyards for outdoor adventures
The hotel restaurant serves arguably the best meals in town, so settle down in the evening and choose carefully from the wine list

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.
