Do to unseasonably heavy rain last February, the estancia's trout stream was totally blown out, and we were unable to fly fish. However, Walter, his charming family, their hospitality, food and this rustic family estancia and vineyard were quite beautiful and restful. Walter took us on a local tour, and we also spent a long afternoon riding in the scenic hills. We would very happily return to ride and fish. In fact we hope to do so some day.
Additionally, Andreas, our fishing guide felt badly about the inability to fish with and stream side cook for us, and so on our return to Mendoza, he took us on a tour of his town, Chacras, and to an exciting Gaucho rodeo.
We very much enjoyed our restful visit to this remotely beautiful and charming Argentine ranch. It was one of the highlights of our trip to Argentina.
Note: It's a fair drive through notable wine country south of Mendoza to Estancia San Pablo, and then a fair piece down back roads, but then this is an estancia in a narrow valley that stretches through the Andes to near the Chilean border. The views are spectacular.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 45 000 HECTARES OF PURE AND WILD NATURE IN THE VERY HEART OF THE ANDES... A one-of-a-kind place to discover the habits and customs of a typical estancia in the Andes, at the foot of the Tupungato volcano, in the Uco Valley. Stretched until the Chilean border, this estancia is an unspoiled setting of the Argentinian soul. Like the old << gaucho>> dogma says: "In the countryside, everyone is welcome as a friend", the guests can enjoy for one day or several days, staying in a rural house, an ecolodge or a camp in valleys cut by streams; share the peaceful life of those Argentinian cowboys, immerge themselves in a rich biodiversity, fish in crystal-clear waters full of the wildest rainbow trouts, discover the livestock farming, appreciate around a fire, under a pergola or in the middle of the Cordillera, typical meals of traditional flavors, and enjoy the home-made wine, issued from 1700m high vineyards. ... more less
