If you want to stay within a stone’s throw of Argentina’s best known wineries, Cavas Wine Lodge fits the bill. This fantastic boutique hotel is a charming historic property just half an hour from Mendoza city.
Rooms at the lodge all face to the west, the direction of the Andes Mountains and some truly unforgettable sunsets. In every room there’s a king size bed, a wood burning fireplace, and a spa-style bathroom with a vintage bathtub. Step outside onto your private deck and you’ll find your plunge pool as well as an outdoor shower.
Grapes and wine feature prominently on the spa’s treatment menu. Did you know that grape seeds are rich in polyphenols, which can fight the signs of ageing? That sounds like a jolly good reason to treat yourself to a relaxing spa experience. If nothing else you’ll need to compensate for overindulging in the Cavas Wine Lodge Restaurant, where the menu changes every day in accordance with what is ripe or has been freshly caught.
