All our Argentina collections:
Definitely South American, but with a bit more European 'polish' than its neighbours, Argentina's cities are a riot of vibrant colour to a sultry tango beat, while its backyard incorporates Patagonia and the Andes Mountains. Definitely a once-in-a-lifetime destination, Argentina is very much its own, very exciting, animal. Reflecting this diversity the best places to stay in Argentina range from rural fincas to boutique chic in the heart of the city.
Most visitors land in Buenos Aires, certainly one of the best places to stay in Argentina if you love the varied liveliness of South American cities. But wine capital Mendoza, gorgeous Bariloche with its spectacular lakeside backdrop bursting with active holiday opportunities, and cultural capital, Córdoba are equally difficult to leave off your itinerary. And that's before you even consider Argentina's wide open spaces.
Argentina's colourful cities are exciting places to be, but if you don't 'get outta town' in Argentina you'll be missing out on the real wonder of the country. The cities are just there to help you acclimatise to the awesomeness of the Perito Moreno Glacier, the soaring Andes, the ancient forests, the thunder of Iguazú Falls, the Patagonian steppes, ice fields and glacial lakes, and the gentler beauty of the Lake District.
After you've been bowled over by Argentina's rich culture, spicy history, epic landscapes and tangoed yourself out, you might want to recover at Mar Del Plata, Argentina's best beach resort.
Buenos Aires is both cosmopolitan metropolis and, in places, small, friendly town. A place where everything from wine to the tango deserves celebrating in festival form. In the colourful heart of busy Buenos Aires you'll see business men in suits dashing past fruit sellers and their stalls. Here the local butcher might be sandwiched between an internationally known boutique and an award winning seafood restaurant.
There's more to the Andes than spectacular mountain passes and 'bucket-list' views. Eighty percent of Argentina's world class wine is produced in the bone dry foothills of the Andes, where the sunny days and cool nights suit chefs as well as grapes, apparently. It also features a good number of the best places to stay in Argentina!
Bariloche is the hub of Argentina's Lake District, surrounded by peaks reaching over 2,000metres high and running along the shores of one of its lagos. The dramatic scenery comes with plenty of snowfall, so in winter this hub turns alpine - which might also be why there's so many chocolate shops here? In summer Bariloche still attracts active types with its promise of sky-scraping hiking and climbing opportunities.
Córdoba's four impressive galleries, multiple niche museums and beautiful religious buildings go some way to justifying Córdoba's title as the Cultural Capital of the Americas. Its a great place for visitors because it's small enough to explore on foot, and most roads run off Córdoba's lively and lovely colonial central plaza or square. If you're interested in exploring South America's fascinating history of theatre - beyond the infectious music and dance, then Córdoba is a great place to see some live action.
A hip and romantic B&B set in a beautiful neo-classical building and surrounded by artworks. Lovely boutique rooms have attractive decoration and views onto a pretty garden. Breakfast room, sun bathing area, tango lessons and yoga classes. A real steal in a cool area.
Colourful boutique hotel in Villa Crespo. Contemporary rooms have large beds, flat screen TVs, iPod docks and modern bathrooms. Library lounge and business centre to plan your excursions from. No restaurant, but walking distance to plenty of eateries. Great value, cool and friendly.
A delightfully rustic B&B and winery surrounded by vineyards and fruit trees. A rural retreat surrounded by outdoor activities - great for families.
A lovely wine estate with a private villa set in 22 acres of vineyards. Renaissance style structure renovated with rustic charm - pine floors, terracotta tiles, and French windows that bathe ochre colours in sunlight. For foodies, spa goers, and wine lovers.
