(Cafayate, Argentina) — This is really a pretty place. The Patios de Cafayete — almost the most perfect Spanish style villa and grounds you can imagine. The reviews are sometimes mixed, but I loved it. Maybe while pretty, it might be lacking a soul with some of the people working there. I think it used to be part of the Luxury Collection, but then I got a cryptic message from the LC when booking saying that they were no longer associated with the property. Nice big rooms and perfect reading porches all around. Excellent courtyard and gorgeous main room. I had a darn good meal in the restaurant, with a fine bottle of their house Don David Malbec. Nice pool, too, to cool off after the exhausting drive. The travel agent and others recommended the Vinas de Cafayete as a much better place, but I never got a chance to stay there.
I was channel surfing a couple months back and noticed the opening credits for The Amazing Race and it was all set around Cafayate and Patios de Cafayate. Cafayate is a gorgeous wine area, btw. Great place to base your explorations and a lot easier to get to. Here’s a great Travel & Leisure article about Salta.
