This simple, enchanting lodge is located on the southeastern shores of Lake Viedma, by the turquoise headwaters of Lake La Leona. The property makes the best of local materials and oozes rustic Patagonian charm, through its warm, welcoming owners and in its minimalist interior.
The estancia is dedicated to offering guests a range of outdoor activities, so you can plunge into the pristine environment. Here you can live like a gaucho, riding on the plains, kayaking or fishing on the lake and tucking into traditional Patagonian fare of lamb or chicken. All 6 rooms are homely en suites with mesmerising views out over the lake to the snowcapped mountains on the horizon.
