Cerro Chico is at the end of a bumpy dirt road north and a little uphill from Tilcara, itself a charming village in the Quebrada (Gorge) of Humahuaca. The site offers a wonderful view of the valley and the multicolored slopes for which the area is famous. The property consists of a series of quasi-rustic but very tastefully designed bungalows,...

We stayed here three nights and wished we could have stayed more. Everything was perfect, from the beautiful cabanas to the location and the views. The owner helped us with everything including what to visit first etc. Breakfast was also good. Best place we stayed at in Argentina by far.

We stayed here only two nights and we regret greatly we didnt stay an extra day just to enjoy the hotel. the view from our room was incredible. Each room has a terrace with deck chairs. The place has two llamas and little foxes come for breakfast and dinner. The walk to tilcara is 20- 30 mins and very enjoyable.... More

North of Argentina is beautiful and the 2 nights we spent in Tilcara were amazing. Cerro Chico is very nice, the view is terrific and then comes the owner. Nour is very nice, friendly and full of suggestions for your trips. Totally suggested.

A quaint, cozy, and quiet hideaway built into the hill (cerro) surrounding Tilcara, Salta, Argentina. It's about a ten minute drive from the town square, though it's along some pretty rough roads! The rooms are spacious and comfortable with gorgeous views from morning until dawn. The owner, Nour, is an incredibly friendly Frenchmen who opened Cerro Chico about ten years... More

While travelling around Northern Argentine all the way from Buenos Aires without booking any hotels or activities in advance, we have come to accidentally find this pleasant surprise. We were greeted with laughter and smiles by llamas and the host. We managed to get a room without booking, even know it is not the usual practise here. It is very... More

Stunningly beautiful hotel above the city of Tilcara. Upon arrival, a jovial Frenchman, Souk greeted us with a huge smile and loads of enthusiasm. He loves what he does, and you can see his passion carry through every detail of the 7-room hotel. The rooms are quaint and clean, views- stunning, customer service- spot on! Souk even gave us a...

This was a wonderful place to stay for a few days at the end of our tour in the north. Nour has created an astonishingly beautiful, relaxing haven in this lovely valley. He was an excellent, eccentric host and very helpful in suggesting local places to go, eat and walk. The foxes (almost perfectly tame) were an added attraction! The... More
