EOLO is situated in the first place in Patagonia where European and creole immigrants set foot. Its private estate covers 10,000 acres of Virgin Patagonia. The human history of the site is important, but it’s dwarfed by the natural history, the geology, the landscapes, and the wildlife.
Sitting at the hotel, the horizon seems endless. When it’s warm you’ll want to be outside, but architect Fernando Bustillo has also gone to great lengths to design a building with large stretches of glass so as to make the most of the views and light. He has taken as his inspiration the simple aesthetics of a creole home, and you’ll spot some hints of their indigenous style amongst the otherwise contemporary design.
With just 17 rooms EOLO is an intimate base to explore the private reserve with an expert guide by mountain bike, horseback and on foot. Venture further and you can listen and watch tons of ice shearing off the face of the Perito Merino Glacier into Lake Argentina.
