When Do You Want To Go?

El Cortijo opened its doors in 1993 after an extensive restoration and renovation of a colonial house constructed from local wood, adobe, stone, and reed. Guests can step back in time and experience what it was like to live in the Argentina of the 18th century. All of your senses will be engaged as you taste local cuisine, view the in-house art collection, smell the fresh air, and listen to the sounds of village life.

The Andean village of Cachi is a four hour drive from the regional centre of Salta, and allows you to escape the hustle and bustle of life and experience the Andes and a slower pace of life. El Cortijo is a welcome and cool respite from the heat of the region, and is a lovely place to relax.

The 15 rooms are homey and simple, featuring local art, fresh cut flowers, and antique furniture. The terra cotta floors and whitewashed walls are typical of the area, and some rooms also offer a sunny terrace.

The on-site restaurant serves up local Andean cuisine, and is known to be the best in the village. Pair your meal with a selection from the extensive wine list, and unwind in the tranquil surrounds.

The hotel can help you to arrange excursions and day trips throughout the region, and you can take advantage of the reliable WiFi throughout the property.
