“If you want to be relaxed, well treated and leave stress behind, this is your place”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

The hotel is located just 75 km away from Ischigualasto Park (Valle de la Luna) and circa 120 km from Talampaya National Park (Province of La Rioja).
The place has 6 rooms, managed by a very friendly couple (Mario and Marisa).
Everything is spotless, clean and in the right place. Bed linen and towels are impeccable and of good quality (not the typical tiny hotel towels that you can see across).
Rooms have no telephones (by the way, the San Agustin area has poor cell reception) and no TV sets, but they do have fridge and a very good audio equipment. They are heated by firewood. The construction is so well done that, even after the fire has been extinguished for some hours, rooms are still warm.
The breakfast is great (don[t miss the morning baked bread and natural orange juice)

This private hotel is situated at the foot of the mountains in a big private garden with a pound, a lot of flowers and trees end many singing birds. It's quiet far from downtown but who cares, the city is not that interesting and here you feel in heaven. We were welcomed by Mario and Marisa, very very nice people who run the place. They are very helpfull and they can tell you all the things to do or not to do over there. They prepare dinner and that's was as excellent as breakfast. The rooms are comfotable and have a good shower. It's a great place to stay.

Mario and Marisa, the youthful owners, make this place what it is. Despite its simplicity this tiny establishment is friendly and comfortable. Nice bedroom, good shower, excellent breakfast, well-stocked mini-bar, all sorts of tips and useful advice from M & M, who could not be nicer. I think the price was also reasonable, although we did not compare with nearby hostelries. One word of warning: there are no gas stations between Valle and Caucete, so it is essential to keep your tank filled up at all times. Sometimes the gas stations run out of gas and you have to wait around for them to be re-supplied (could be hours, or days!!!).

We didn't book our double room in time with Marisa and therefore didn't actually get to stay here but have written a review because they enhanced our experience so much. We speak minimal Spanish and landed in Valle Del Fertile being unable to book our trip to Ischigualasto as the tour operator seemed to have a different agenda for the day. Marisa went out of her way to organise a trip with a local driver and even called the national park to tell the guide that we required English translations. We met Mario later on and he and Marissa again helped us organise a trip to Talampaya and gave us tips for our onward journey. They welcomed us into their garden and pool area to use their wifi as required. We chatted about life's ups and downs and were made to feel like we were their guests. These were simple and genuine kind gestures on their part. They have their guests best interests at heart and are a lovely couple, knowledgable about the area and full of ideas and inspirations. I wish them all the best and can safely say you won't be lacking if you stay with them as they will go out their way to do all they can to help.

We selected this hotel as our home base for visiting the Ischigualasto and Talampaya reserves. The room was very nice, simple yet with an authentic local atmosphere, very clean and comfortable. We were greeted by Mario who made us feel instantly at home. He took the time to help us plan our trip and spared no effort to help us with anything we needed. His friendly yet unobtrusive manner with all his guests makes staying at his hotel a unique experience we will always remember.

We underestimated the time to get there... we rolled in at midnight.... Mario and Marisa were waiting for us... the room was fine, a good space,,, minibar is so well stocked it gets our vote for the best in the world (and we have seen the inside of a lot of 5 star hotels that boast about their mini bars..)... these people know how to make you feel welcome and even better, the snacks and the wine are all locally sourced and taste superb. Mario and Marisa are a font of all knowledge - Marisa saw our binoculars and produced bird watching guides... and then organised two local birdwatching guides for a super morning tour. Mario meanwhile had recommended restaurants, a tour of the local stone/mineral/insects museum (don't scoff it was really interesting a real labour of love run by 2 local brothers with a love of the local area and who own the mountain behind the museum) and arranged an English speaking guide for Valle de la Luna. We can not recommend this hotel or this couple highly enough.

Hotel Rustico Valle Fertil is located just across from the bus station in San Agustin. San Agustin is a town of about 4000. Its location provides convenient access to the must see sights of Ischigalasto and Talampaya. The town is attractive, has excellent restaurants, and many friendly people – you will be routinely greeted as you stroll about in the evening. It reminds me very much of small town America in the early 1950’s.

Hotel Rustico fits into the theme of San Agustin perfectly. It is a beautiful and peaceful place with a very large central lawn/courtyard with ample seating and a delightful pool. It is operated by Marisa and Mario who do a superb job of seeing to it that all the guests are very well cared for. Their English is excellent and they were exceedingly helpful arranging sight seeing and transfers for the guests. They provide a superb breakfast served in the courtyard.

There is a lot to see and do in the Valle Fertil area but one of the major delights is lounging around the pool at the Hotel Rustico and strolling about San Agustin and dining there. Many of the other guests did just that. Some of them even cancelled parts of their itineraries to spend more time at Hotel Rustico. We very strongly recommend this hotel.
