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 colorful 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

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

El Cortijo Hotel Boutique began life as a traditional colonial townhouse and provides a glimpse into local life in Argentina's northern town of Cachi. Located in the upper Calchaqui Valley, El Cortijo enjoys a backdrop of impressive mountain scenery.

Reflecting typical life in Cachi, a charming colonial town in northern Argentina's Salta province, El Cortijo Hotel Boutique has been transformed to include a few extra luxuries but still retains much of its original charm as a traditional townhouse. Constructed using local materials such as adobe, stone, reed and wood, El Cortijo is unique but offers guests a feeling of home with cosy furnishings and details, along with a subdued color pallet.

There are a handful of guestrooms at El Cortijo which are spacious and each offer a private terrace to make the most of the views to the surrounding landscapes. Good quality linens are provided, along with complimentary WiFi and digital safes. There is a shop on site which sells local artesanias and handicrafts, along with a restaurant which dishes up regional delights and typical Andean cuisine.

The pre-Hispanic village of Cachi offers many cultural delights which are ready to be explored, from beautiful churches to an archaeological museum and local wineries. Its position in the upper Calchaqui Valley of Salta means that El Cortijo affords spectacular views to the surrounding mountains, vineyards and valleys and is enough to tempt hikers, bikers and outdoor enthusiasts to make the most of this dramatic landscape and soak in the views.
