About Villa La Angostura

On the northwestern banks of Lago Nahuel Huapis stands the upmarket resort town of Villa La Angostura, a favourite seasonal haunt of wealthy Argentines and the perfect destination for a holiday in the great outdoors. Flanked by snowcapped mountains that are bearded with myrtle trees and fields bursting with multicoloured flowers, the town nestles amongst some of the most beautiful scenery Argentina has to offer. Whether you're cruising along the lake, walking past cascading waterfalls or sampling wild boar at the Bahia Mansa, you will feel at peace in this remote and gorgeous land. The best places to stay in Villa La Angostura prize tranquility and respite above all else.

The town splits into two essential parts: El Cruce, the commercial centre straddling the highway, and La Villa, the largely residential area 3km south that sits alongside the lake, where you can find most of the shops, restaurants and services. The main street, in particular, brims with independent chocolate shops. There is a picturesque natural harbour with a wooden pier amidst colourful small fishing boats bobbing gently in the water. Puerto Manzano, sitting by the lake, is where boats leave for tours of the Parque Nacional Los Arrayanes.

The town is really the stepping stone to the outlying areas surrounding La Villa. The landscape has an Alpine feel to it, with misty forested mountains, wide lakes with waters as clear as glass, and old wooden cabins dotting the valleys.

This region is also prized for its local produce: venison, wild boar and trout are regularly served in restaurants, and holidaymakers can even try their hand at fly-fishing in the nearby rivers.

In summary, Villa La Angostura is a picturesque resort town with an Alpine-feel sitting amidst gorgeous, unspoilt scenery and is perfect for an adventurous holiday in the great outdoors. Check out below our collection of the best places to stay in Villa La Angostura to find out more!
