Lares de Chacras Hotel
Friendly and informal family-owned country house in the heart of Argentina’s wine region. A rustic place, not luxurious, but the service is exceptional.
This friendly and informal family-owned country house is 15km outside Mendoza in the heart of Argentina’s best-known wine producing region. The rich viticultural and gastronomic heritage of the area is much in evidence at Lares de Chacras. It's a rustic place, not luxurious, but the service is exceptional.
The architectural style is rustic and cosy, combining stone with wood and other natural materials. There are just eight rooms; those on the ground floor have sliding glass doors opening on to the garden and first floor rooms have balconies.
There is a swimming pool and Jacuzzi, and a restaurant, bar, cavernous wine cellar and living room with a welcoming open fireplace. There’s also a traditional quincho where a typical Argentine barbecue can be prepared. In the surrounding vine-draped landscapes lie numerous vineyards which you can visit during your stay.
