Posada de Luz was our favourite of the seven places we stayed during our recent trip to Argentina. The adobe style hotel is located a 5 minute walk about the heart of Tilcara, and sits within it own large walled grounds / gardens which is a real boon, as it makes it quiter than the majority of accommodation. Dogs barking is an issue all across Argentina in the morning particularly, so I'd advise everyone going anywhere in Argentina on holiday to have a good supply of ear-plugs.
The hotel does no have air-con, but the split-level room design is clever to achieve natural cross ventilation and the stone / concrete floors keep the rooms and a good temperature. Breakfast is lovely, reception staff very helpful. The real attraction is the pool. Its not massive - maybe 7.5 metres by 3, but it is such a lovely thing after a day's sight-seeing to be able to have a dip with such a wonderful panorama.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- La Posada de Luz is in Tilcara, in the heart of the Quebrada de Humahuaca, which was declared Natural and Cultural Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2003. It was categorized with three stars by the Tourism Department of the Province of Jujuy, and it has 6 double rooms, triple rooms and a quadruple one. Its owner, Luz Manfredi, knew the area in 1985, while on a trip to Cuzco, and since then she was in love with the landscape and the culture of the people. The project to build an inn in the “quebradeña way”, i.e. with stone foundations, adobe walls and mud cake and cane roofs grew through the years, and it took shape in January 2004 with the opening of the Posada de Luz with its 6 rooms whose main charm are the terraces from where you get a panoramic view of the hills around Tilcara. Since then we have received in the Posada people from all corners of Argentina and the world, many of whom are now great friends of ours. ... more less
