Estancia El Puesto
Formerly a goat farm, the Estancia El Puesto is a delightfully homey little hotel where guests can expect unforgettable hospitality, scenery and outdoor adventures. Set amidst fields and streams at the foot of spectacular snowcapped peaks, it is a peaceful place to spend lazy afternoons sipping wine by the fireplace, reading or going for long walks. There are numerous opportunities for excursions, as well—all included in the price of lodging. Guests can go horseback riding, trekking, mountain biking, fishing, river rafting, paragliding, sightseeing in a 4x4 or hot air balloon, wildlife spotting, take a dip in the stream or visit local vineyards. Horseback riding is the hotel's specialty and during the summer guests can even participate in a guided expedition across the Andes on horseback.
The hotel is located in the Los Árboles district of the Alto Valle de Uco about 68 miles (2 hours) southwest of the city of Mendoza. It lies nearly 5,000 feet above sea level along the so-called Ruta del Vino (Winery Route) near many important wineries. The area is a rural patchwork of forests and fields crossed by mountain streams and full of native flora and fauna.
Food & Beverage
Four meals a day and all beverages (including wine) are included in the price of lodging. The delectable homemade cuisine consists of traditional Argentinean dishes and is always accompanied by great coffee and fine locally produced wines.
How To Get There
To get to the hotel from the city of Mendoza, take route 40 south to Ugarteche then take route 86 to San José. Continue through the town of Tupungato then bear right onto route 89 towards Los Árboles. On your way you will pass by the farms of Mayol, Chandón, Reina Rutini and Salentein. About 1/3 of a mile after passing the "El Portillo" store, take your first right onto a dirt road. After following this road for 4.3 miles (and crossing the El Olmo stream) you will arrive at the hotel on your left.
