House of Jasmines
Ancient eucalyptus trees flank a long and stately drive leading to the
family-run estancia, 15 minutes outside Salta in Argentina’s subtropical
northwest. Four new guest quarters (three of them suites) recently
joined the 10 existing rooms, all furnished with exquisite taste by
co-owner Stéphanie Fenestraz: embroidered sheets; cowhide rugs; antique
slipper chairs and love seats covered in white linen and draped with
indigenous textiles. The sweet-smelling jasmine shrubs that give the
property its name are joined by vegetable gardens and a fruit orchard.
For dinner, snag one of the sofas around the huge open hearth in the new
La Table de House of Jasmines restaurant, which specializes in hearty
regional cuisine—from locro stew to meat-filled empanadas.
