“great base to explore Bariloche”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2010

We arrived very late at the apartment due to flights but the owner,Manuel was there waiting for us - very cheery despite the dark and rain!
It is essential to hire a car to explore as the place is 22km from town. But,it's nice to be out by the lake - that's the whole point of visiting. We hired the car through Manuel - it was a small Fiat - basic but adequate.
The apartment was spotless and VERY cosy.....the weather was chilly while we there so we appreciated the underfloor heating. One problem though - it was a bit too hot during the night and the sign on the boiler said not to adjust the heating.
The pool is lovely, as are the gardens...perfect for children to be independent.
The whole place is very well maintained.
My only complaint would be that the children slept on )very comfortable) day beds in the lounge area so when we wanted to put them to bed and watch tv or talk we had to go to the bedroom.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2007

Have just returned from the Costa Brava. This property is about 22km out of town which is exactly what we were looking for, a little peace and tranquility . Its only 6km from the Llao Llao Peninisular and the beautiful lakes and mountains that surrounds it. The Cerro Catedral ski resort is also only 20 minutes drive away.

Patricia and Manuel are wonderful host and made us very welcome. They hung the national flag of every guest outside their apartment which I thought was lovely.

As mentioned by the previous post, the bungalow had a small spa, kitchen, beds for at least 6 people, a huge fireplace, high ceiling and wireless internet. The underfloor heating was also terrific.

The apartment has a cypress county style decor which was very apprioriate for the location.

As it was winter the swiming pool was closed and they are currently putting a roof over it so I guess on our next visit they will have an all weather pool.

We truely enjoyed our 6 night stay at this property and will definitely be back there.

We used Costa Brava as our base to explore Bariloche and the surrounding area, and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who wants to explore the region with a rental car (really cheap in Argentina).

Our hosts (Manuel and Patricia) made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. The bungalow was fantastic: hydromassage, beautiful lake views (the Nahuel Huapi shore was only 60 feet away), high ceilings with wooden beams, wireless internet access, and an excellent breakfast included in the price.

The heated swimming pool seemed to merge with the lake beyond and had a convenient towel service... we were only able to use it once, though, as there is so much to do in the surrounding area (typical Patagonian meals in the Swiss colony, kayaking in the Brazo Campanario, trips to Isla Victoria and Puerto Blest, the scenic route 'Circuito Chico', and plenty of forest and mountain paths for walking and hiking all within 10 minutes by car).

We loved every minute of our stay. We can't wait to go back to Bariloche and will definitely stay at Costa Brava again.
