We were at Finca La Carmelita for 3 nights. We had booked ahead of time, but a landslide in the Chile-Argentina border prevented us from reaching the place on the schedule date. Nicole, the owner, was very kind and moved the booking for us without any trouble, and even prepared freshly made sandwiches and cold drinks for us when we... More

We had such a wonderful stay at La Carmelita. Nicole was always helpful and the volunteers were active and friendly. The campo was absolutely beautiful with the horses always somewhere in the distance. Breakfast was lots of homemade treats. Highly recommended.

We visited La Carmelita during our 3 1/2 week tour to Argentina. We already knew Nicole from Switzerland. Hence this was the moment to visit her at her new "home". Nicole hadn't changed. She still has her friendly, warm, open and direct character - still positive thinking. And La Carmelita? For me it's a bit heaven on earth. For all... More

Nicole and her perssonel give excellent service, very social and friendly. The rooms are large and have a nice patio towards the Andes. Horses and lamas and lots of friendly dogs. Breakfast is made with care and homemade bread and jam. The pool is situated close to the mainhouse and not far from our quarters. Nicole, thank you again for... More

I had an excellent stay at the very charming finca. It made me want to to quit my job and buy a farm in San Rafael! It was absolutely gorgeous - both the landscape and the lovely brick farm cottages.

We stayed at Carmelita for 4 nights, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves on the estate. Besides the beauty of the land with vines, olive trees and plum trees, Nicole, the owner, made the stay even better. She painstakingly gave us directions and recommendations every night, graciously sharing her kitchen when I fell ill and couldn't stomach another parilla dinner, besides arranging... More
