this is a beautiful, well appointed property in a rural setting, yet only a stones throw from san rapheal and valle grande. all the rooms look to the andes, and there is a wonderful array of animals on the premises....lamas, horses, dogs and cats. the hostess/owner nicole is fluent in several languages, and her staff are warm and considerate, and...

I and my partner (back then, currently hubby!!) visited here last March, not this year, however as TA only allows reviews back in Nov last year I simply choose March this year. FYR. We planned to stay there for just 2 nights and move to Mendoza but as we really loved to be there, we cancelled one night in Mendoza... More

We stayed at Carmelita for 4 nights, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves on the estate. Besides the beauty of the land with vines, olive trees and plum trees, Nicole, the owner, made the stay even better. She painstakingly gave us directions and recommendations every night, graciously sharing her kitchen when I fell ill and couldn't stomach another parilla dinner, besides arranging... More

We enjoyed our three night stay at Finca De La Carmelita, a high end rural 8 room hotel, with well marked directions just outside of San Rafael, a short 10-15 minute drive to the city center. The hotel is off of Route 143, just past the airport. Unlike bike/wine tours in Mendoza, in which one rides on the shoulder of... More

Nicole and her staff is giving excellent service to their customers. The rooms are spacious for a hotel, with a nice patio overlooking the Andes. Breakfast is personally made for each guest and at the time you indicate the night before. The hotel is off the city center, quiet and gives you views at night of start skies that you... More

My girlfriend and I spent 4 unforgetable nights at Finca La Carmelita. The place is simply amazing... Surrounded by a vineyard, plum trees, with the Cordillera looking at you in the rear window! Nicole, the owner, is absolutely attentive, straightforward and for sure will be more than happy to assist you with every little thing you may require! We ate... More

We stayed at Finca La Carmelita for three nights mid way through our Brazil and Argentina honeymoon. It was a wonderful place to stay and our host Nicole made us feel at home from the moment we arrived and brought us a glass of wine from a local vineyard while we sat out in the sun. The setting is perfect,... More

In case you don't want to read a long review, let me just say this: if you are considering staying at the La Carmelita, just do it. It's clean, comfortable, well-organized, friendly. Done. If you'd like more information, here it is. My family stayed at the La Carmelita for three nights in late December, 2011. In researching the area I... More
