Hotels in Argentina
Sitting on 3,700 acres, the imposing eight-bedroom guesthouse of Villa Maria is a design anomaly for the pampas: English Tudor, inside and out. But guests are welcomed with an authentic asado before they begin exploring the sprawling grounds, on horseback or on foot.
The hotel, on 96,000 acres, is the choice for isolated luxury. The television-free rooms are surrounded by fields of lavender and 150-year-old vines. Tours of the estate's winery, museum, and horseback-riding trails must be booked in advance.
Founded by the owners of the famed Kau-Tapen fishing lodge and modeled after its famous predecessor, the Pirá Lodge is located in the Corrientes province and is the first luxury fishing lodge focusing on the freshwater dorado.

Used as his base while shooting the film Tetro, director and winemaker Francis Ford Coppola turned this sleek Palermo Soho abode into one of the city’s premier boutique hotels, following the same pattern as his other residences-turned-hotels in Belize and Guatemala.
El Chaltén, a dusty speck of a town situated in an unusually beautiful spot beneath the granite spires of Cerro Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre, has hardscrabble charm: until recently, there were few lodging options for those not willing to camp out or share a bathroom.
