La Merced del Alto Hotel Cachi

La Merced del Alto Hotel | Cachi, Salta, Argentina |  La Merced del Alto Hotel is located in Cachi, a charming small town approximately 3 hours away from the city of Salta in Argentina. I was there a year ago and fell completely in love with this area, the fantastic boutique Hotel and over all the culture, the people, the food and of course the wine. It is truly a shame that at that time I did not have the camera I have now, to capture more in depth the soul and colors of the area, the textures and its people.

Located at the base of El Nevado de Cachi slope, La Merced del Alto stands out in the Valles Calchaquies surrounded by rivers, springs of water and slopes. Only a few minutes away walking from the town of Cachi which consist in a main square from where spreads the most 15 blocks on each direction. 159 km from the City of Salta and 157 from worldwide renown vineyards of Cafayate.

Outdoors Pool area with breathtaking views of the valley in full harmony and tranquility. Spa with multiple treatments to better enjoy and appreciate the unparalleled beauty of this area, complimented by this unique boutique hotel. From the warmth of its staff to the details in the decoration, you will feel at home.

Comfortable, spacious and full of natural light  rooms, where white linens, iron furniture and wood are the stars. Six rooms overviewing the slopes, six rooms overviewing the Colonial Patio and standard rooms, some with access for guests with special needs.

The hotel offers a CAVA – 6380 – with a local premium selection of wines from Yacochuya, Colome, Viñas de Dávalos and Finca Humanao, only a few examples of the record high altitude vineyards in the world, classic from this area of Argentina.  Also the restaurant with Andean Gourmet Cuisine, featuring local delicatessens and typical dishes.  Common areas to entertain yourself and mingle with other guest, and a space called SUM where guests may enjoy the connection to the back to the real world, with access to Satellital TV.

Cafayate in photos Salta Argentina

CAFAYATE in Photos Salta, Argentina  |  Cafayate, Salta, Argentina  |  (North of Argentina, Salta) The wine region of Salta. Photos will talk for themself… I can only say that this destination is the perfect combination of relaxation + gourmet + wineries + luxury. I want to thank Viñas de Cafayate Hotel for hosting me.

Patios de Cafayate Hotel by Sheraton. A classic landmark of Cafayate and together with Viñas de Cafayate Hotel the two main options in town.

The main square is one of the main neuralgic points of this charming town. Home to the cathedral and one of my favorite restaurants, Terruño, where you can enjoy the best views of the locals while sipping and tasting the best wine exponents of the only and traditional Argentinean grape – the Torrontes.

Many of the most impressive sights in the Valley of the Río las Conchas (Quebrada de Cafayate) are along the paved, 183-kilometres-long National Route 68 that goes from Salta to Cafayate. National Route 40 goes for 165 kilometres form Cafayate to Cachi del Valle, another of the most visited points in the area. Other points of interest from Cafayate include Molinos, Tolombón and San Isidro ranch. The town of Cafayate is an attraction by itself, with its laid-back rhythm, colonial style, and wine cellars open to the public.

The Cafayates were a tribe of the Diaguita-Calchaquí group, which, together with the related Tolombón, inhabited the Valles Calchaquíes prior to the arrival of the Spanish Conquistadores. Their language was known as Cacán. Like other Diaguita tribes, they had recently fallen under the influence of the Incas, after a prolonged resistance. They later mounted a fierce resistance to the Spaniards. CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends
