“Sophisticated Country Living”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2011

Driving over the spectacular “Camino de las altas cumbres” from Cordoba in about 2 ½ hours, one reaches the rustic village of San Javier in the beautiful region of Traslasierras at the foot of the almost 3000 meters high Cerro Champaqui. The vegetation is a little drier than to the east of the mountains with olive trees a common sight.

This is where “Porteños” (people from Buenos Aires) and “Cordobeses” build their second homes to spend summers or longer weekends. Unlike other villages/towns in the Sierras de Cordoba that cater to watersports and late night crowds, San Javier still retains a pronounced rustic charm. Nevertheless, there are a number of sophisticated restaurants, mostly run by people who have come to live here from Buenos Aires.

The “Rancho de Julieta y la Estacion” has several self-catering cabins that lie about 2 km from the village center with a breathtaking view over the planes and the mountains behind. They are spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. We stayed at the “La Estacion” cabin that has one bedroom + a living room/kitchen with an extra bed.

The cabin is set in an olive garden with the occasional grazing sheep and one can watch spectacular sunsets from the terrace that surrounds it. Tip: Get some “Fiambres” and “Quesos” (sausages/cheeses) + a bottle of wine/champagne from a shop in the village and relax. In the evening, buy a huge chunk of meat and grill it on your own bbq, or if you don’t feel like it, have dinner in one of the excellent restaurants around.
