We had our DSLR camera stolen in Argentina, while attempting to bike the wine routes outside of Mendoza. It was a harrowing experience we cringe to remember, but luckily we were staying at the rural 6-room Hotel El Aguamiel at the time and returning from being interrogated by 15 bulletproof vest-wearing officers to our little slice of vineyard heaven far outweighs all the negative. Yes, we can't wait to go back.
El Aguamiel is a property we chanced upon, while browsing the Argentina offerings on flash hotel sale site Jetsetter.com. Yes, we were heading in the direction of Mendoza and yes, we could totally take a couple days to chill out surrounded by the grapes that make the Malbecs we ordered from brunch 'til midnight.
At $169 per night with free WiFi and breakfast, it was a no-brainer. Sadly the hotel is no longer listed on Jetsetter, but here's hoping it returns soon.
In the wine region around Mendoza, there sits a tiny design-focused hotelEl Aguamielwith its own vineyard...and its own vineyard guard dog. Anna is a large, black presence on the property, as she slinks around the 6 rooms (yes, only 6), the pool, the restaurant and the many rows of Malbec grapes.
Now, with video:
