Below are just a few of our favorites within the wide choice you have for a Cafayate hotel and we also suggest some great places in Cachi and Molinos. There are more on offer so feel free to speak to us about more options if required.
Hacienda de Molinos
Well we only recommend one as this IS the place to stay in the tiny village of Molinos. Molinos is found en-route from Cafayate to Cachi traveling through the spectacular canyon “Quebrada de las Flechas” and forms your base to visit the highest vineyard in the world. The Colome vineyard is reached via a 45 minute drive from Molinos, plus further on you have the Tacuil vineyard too.
You could visit the Colome winery on a day trip from Cachi if you are prepared to spend a few hours in the vehicle there and back but the Hacienda de Molinos is so lovely why wouldn’t you stay here? The property is a lovely old farm-house, converted into an excellent hotel with a good bar and restaurant and a very nice pool area.
La Merced del Alto
The La Merced del Alto Hotel is a real beauty, and is located some 15 minutes outside the town of Cachi. The property is a restored hacienda similar in some ways to the one above in Molinos but on a larger and grander scale. The hotel has its own wine cellar, pool, spa, lovely common areas decorated in eclectic and period styles, the rooms are well-appointed and the bar and restaurant are top class. The views are superb and wandering the hotel grounds and surrounding countryside is a real treat.
This seems quite a normal place from the outside but once you enter the design and art hits you in the face. The common areas of El Cortijo are very nicely done, with a mixture of local, colonial and modern touches and the rooms follow this theme, each one being a little different in size, layout and design. Some of the rooms have private patios with sun loungers. The common area patios on the ground floor are lovely to spend some time in, especially when the sun is shining. The restaurant looks good and has great food. The hotel has a town location so you have more options for eating and drinking.
