First of all, yes there are still people out there traveling without a phone or spending constant time on the internet but let me share my experience with this place from the beginning: I did the Salta-Cafayate-Cachi loop with my own rented vehicle and with no advance bookings. Its off season, none of the places are full, so I didnt... More

One of my favorite parts of my trip in the north. I was traveling with two friends and we had a wonderful stay at Estancia Chimpa. Teresita went out of her way to make us feel at home. The property is beautiful and has a pool! We opted to go horseback riding two mornings at a very reasonable price. On... More

Everybody looking for an authentic estancia with lots of animals, who loves riding, hearing the birds and owls during the night, will be right here.

From start to finish our stay on this stunning Estancia was unforgettable. Teresita was very friendly and answered all our questions. The rooms are beautiful and clean and the breakfast was delicious, which included the best dulce de leche in all Argentina! The horseriding was so much fun, and the horses were beautiful. We couldn´t believe how stunning the landscape... More

We just had a lovely stay at Chimpa. You need some sort of own transport, but it gives you the flexibility to do whatever you want. Since we like to discover new places, we took our rental car for having dinner or whatever (first wine tasting - of course) in Cafayate. The estancia itself is gorgeous with many animals. Our...

This was weird, we have never really seen the place.The idea was to get there, being away from the city, relax and enjoy dinner. After 2 times of emailing to Estancia Chimpa and confirming 2 times that we would appreciate the dinner we had to hear 1 hour before we got there (around 17.00, just to double check), that there...

It is hard to understand the prior glowing review. Our experience was very different. First, there was no assistance at all regarding finding our way there from the town. We took one of the few taxis from Cafayate 12 km to the estancia, and on arrival were shown our room by the owner, Teresita. It was full of flies. The... More

Chimpa is a working estancia run by the charming Teresita Nuni. Do not expect a hotel, but an authentic home away from home designed with exquisite taste. You can relax on the veranda with a glass of white wine and listen to Teresita tell you all about the history and life on the estancia. Or go for a swim in... More

We were taken care by our host before we arrived as she phoned us durig that day to aid us on any information we needed. We ahd a lovely tea when we got there, and later in the evening the best asado ever, combined with the locally produced wine. Next morning we rode and learnt about farm life and how... More
