Wow! Our family was blown away by our recent visit of Hosteria Alta Vista. Managed by the delightful Tamara and Federico, this small gem was the highlight of our 10 day visit to Patagonia. From the scrumptious food (empanadas! barbecue!) to the stunningly beautiful backdrop to the well cared-for horses to the friendly dogs, we felt embraced by the experience.... More

I was blown away by this property; it is like Tuscany meets Wyoming. Driving down the dirt road one does not know know quite what to expect when arriving at this Estancia (working farm) but the wildflowers, free roaming sheep and horses and the tiny blue lagoons of flamencos surrounded by stunning mountain ranges left me breathless with anticipation. And... More

We stayed for thee nights at Alta Vista on our first visit to Patagonia and it is all one imagines Patagonia to be, a wonderful peaceful place. It is some way from El Calefate and in our opinion perhaps all the better for it. Tamara and Frederico were perfect hosts and excellent for information on excursions to Perito Moreno and... More

The hosts, Tamara and Federico, are wonderful. The chef, Juan Cruz, makes amazing dinners. "Maggie", the waitress and assistant, is so warm and fun. We walked on the estancia twice and rode horses once. It really is a great place to stay. We liked being away from the touristy city.

Thanks to the great hospitality of Tamara and the kindness of Federico, we had a remarkable vacation in El Calafate. Federico, took us on a fabulous horse ride on the surrounding mountains where we could observe wild horses, pink flamingos, eagles, rabbits and, from a distance, the Perito Moreno. We were warmly welcomed. We will long cherish those beautiful memories!

We stayed in Hosteria Alta Vista in January 2015 for three nights. The place is simply amazing. Beautiful settings in the middle of Patagonia with no one to be seen for miles. Yet perfectly located not too far from El Calafate airport and close to the glacier. Start early and you are at the glacier well before everyone else. But... More

We stayed at Hosteria Alta Vista, the inn part of the Estancia Anita, for our last 3 nights in Patagonia. If we could have, we would have stayed longer. We were not interested in the shopping, restaurants, or night life of El Calafate, so it was truly perfect for us. We wanted another chance to enjoy the breathtaking scenery of... More

We stayed here 2 nights and enjoyed it very much. There was only one other couple when we were there, so it was pretty quiet. Somehow we lucked out and got a room with a bedroom, a sitting room, and a bathroom - very deluxe. This place sends you back in time. It reminded me of an old English bungalow... More

What a satisfying stay we had at Hosteria Alta Vista. We were drawn in by the vast expanses of Patagonian scenery surrounding Alta Vista, but our hearts were captured by our hosts and their sense of hospitality. In large part due to the unrelenting warmth and enthusiasm of Tamara and Federico, we recommend you explore the stunning and diverse landscape... More

We spent here a couple of nights & wished we had spent one more night. It was right for us but it may not be the right place for others depeanding on what you are looking for or what your expectations are. This is my summary: 1) it is a calm & relaxed place away from the noise & city... More
