#1 of 2 in Molinos
Hacienda Molinos is a mandatory stop on any tour round the Calchaquí Valleys. This traditional hacienda, which dates back to the 18th century and was home to the last governor of Salta appointed by the King of Spain, has been refurbished to provide you with all comfort expected from a 21st century hotel, while preserving the essence and typical features of colonial times.

The hotel is in the governor's mansion, and the setting of two huge courtyards with connecting lounges off hallways, made for a great wander. The pool is tucked away out back, and is very cool. With a strong wind blowing the afternoon we were there, I didn't risk getting in, but it was a peaceful corner to read and enjoy the sun. The dinner at the hotel was so delicious - I had a huge salad with cured ham and cheese, as well as cherry tomatoes, sunflower seeds and fresh greens from the garden out back. My husband's steak was tasty. The wine list is surprisingly broad. The waitress only spoke Spanish, but we were able to communicate fairly well with pointing and pantomime. She was very sweet. Our room (#11) was fairly small, and the bathroom was really tight. The ceiling fan kept us cool overnight, until the electricity went off about 0700 and didn't come back for several hours. Breakfast had the usual offerings of Argentina. The location was great as a halfway point between Cafayate and Salta and allowed us to visit the Colome winery and James Turrell Museum (which was so unique and spectacular, that if you're in this area, you must check it out, but you have to have reservations in advance).

This wonderful property is paradise. We stayed only one night as it was our break on the long drive between Salta and Cafayate on route 40. If we had known how wonderful this place was we would have have planned a longer stay. The room was spacious and the bed comfortable. The shower was the best we’ve had on our entire Argentinian trip with plenty of hot water and good water pressure. We enjoyed a delicious dinner in the restaurant and the courtyard was a magical place to enjoy the delicious included breakfast. The pool looked beautiful although we didn’t have time to try it.

I was only here for one night, but everything was great. It was very quiet, it's a small town, and the dinner at the hotel was excellent. The staff was very polite, the room clean and comfortable, and I'd definitely stay here again.

Lonely Planet’s opinion on Molinos: ‘nothing here to see so move on’. Tosh. Although the village lacks any tourist infrastructure or beautiful buildings, it is an authentic place in the most glorious setting. Staying at Hacienda de Molinos was one of the highlights of our trip to Argentina. This old mansion has cool rooms, antique furniture, a wonderful courtyard shaded by an ancient tree, a nice pool and the restaurant serves good food and wine. We spent three nights here and had some lovely walks and a visit to the Colomé vineyard, the second highest vineyard in the world (don’t pass up a chance to visit this place, but you need to book - the hotel can do this for you.)

Molinos is a very small town and super quiet. Also read: not much to do, but a great stop while touring NWArgentina. We loved this old hacienda. Very picturesque. The bed was comfortable. No TV, no heat or AC/we only needed the ceiling fan. No safe in the room. There is a refrigerator in case you care. Clean. The food at the restaurant is fabulous. Lettuce grown outside. The pasta was surprisingly delicious. Breakfast basic but high quality. We enjoyed our one night stay very much.

This is a very special place which I would highly recommend and it is worth spending a night or two here rather than just staying in cafayate and cachi. The hotel is in a very elegant colonial building which was previously a governors house with a wonderful internal courtyard where you can eat and drink under a huge tree. The food was extremely good and great value and the staff were very friendly and helpful. It is in a ‘one street’ beautifully preserved Spanish colonial town with my favourite old church in the whole of Argentina – simple but incredibly elegant. There are very few tourists here and it is extremely peaceful. We went on a 2 hour horse ride with ‘Jesus’ which I would also highly recommend. He was incredibly friendly and gave us lots of really interesting information about the area. The horses were easy to ride and clearly well looked after. His telephone number is 3875114597 or it can be organised through the hotel.

We stopped briefly at this quaint colonial manor on our way to Cafayate to see the church as well. Our guide said it used to be the home of the last governor of Salta when it was under Spanish rule. This grand, white hacienda is now converted into a hotel. But what was delightful was the large pepperina or false pepper tree in the courtyard. We were able to purchase a cup of tea and sit in the cool, dappled shade of this peppering tree with birds chirping melodically above our heads. Charming I think it would have been quite nice to have spent a night here

After a long day driving and visiting different towns, arriving at Hacienda de Molina’s was a treat! Spacious room with a lot of history and interesting decor. Still using the old type of keys, with an amazing patio and well treated gardens, you feel comfortable right away. Tasteful food prepared carefully with good and local ingredients. Some spanish is recommended and be aware that internet reception is not good in the rooms.
