Grace Cafayate, Calchaquí Valley

For remarkable scenery, world-class wine and no shortage of discoveries, look no further than Grace Cafayate. Within the Calchaquí Valley of northwestern Argentina, this boutique hotel and spa sits on the sprawling estate of La Estancia de Cafayate, home to a number of quality winemakers. The 52 elegantly designed rooms within the hotel and villas open out onto views that stretch across the impressive vineyards and neighboring mountains, whilst tennis, horseriding and bike rides around the valley sit just off your doorstep.

LOCATION

The Calchaquí Valley is well-regarded as one of Argentina’s leading wine regions but also stands out for its breathtaking natural beauty and rugged mountainous landscape. Just south of the Salta region in northwestern Argentina, Grace Cafayate is a 2-hour 30-minute drive from Martín Miguel de Güemes international airport whilst downtown is just over a mile away. Due to its remote location, lack of light pollution and crisp high-altitude air, the night sky comes alive with a spectacular array of stars to make for a truly unforgettable sight.

YOUR ROOM

Each of the 52 rooms has been carefully designed with comfort in mind at Grace Cafayate, with spaces you simply want to fall back into. As you do, take in the panoramic views of the Calchaqui Valley and snow-capped peaks over spectacular sunsets without moving an inch. We loved the Villa Master Suites which make the most of the outdoors with the option of a barbeque and a soak in the hot tub out on your own private veranda.
