A traditional white-washed country house that is shrouded by indigenous trees and climbing greenery, Finca Valentina is a characterful family-run property that lies in the foothills of the Andes.
Outside, an outdoor pool is partly shaded by trees and encircled by lounge chairs, while inside an elegant restaurant boasts a culturally diverse menu of home-cooked dishes owing to the influence of the Italian owners. Homemade cakes, fresh baked breads and a superb wine list make this property an inevitably indulgent foodie favourite.
Its eight bright rooms, interspersed between the main house and two independent cottages with private patios, are flooded with light through shuttered windows and furnished with local artisan objects and intricate textiles from Salta.
Why we like Finca Valentina
Offering understated elegance and a homely feel, the real uniqueness of Finca Valentina lies in its welcoming atmosphere – occasionally, happy family dogs can be seen wandering around the garden, eager for cuddles and attention!
Go horseback riding on dusty tracks that cut through sprawling fields, hike down lanes flanked by yellow wildflowers, attend a traditional cooking workshop or simply relax by the pool in the pretty gardens with a local wine in hand.
