Salta and the northwest Andes: Hacienda de Molinos

Hacienda de Molinos

Hacienda de Molinos is a charming converted 18th century hacienda which sits opposite the church in the centre of the sleepy little town of Molinos. Its grounds, surmounted by a picturesque mountain ridge, stretch out into sweeping fields and grasslands.

The whitewashed adobe building follows a familiar colonial design, with shady colonnades surrounding a number of central courtyards which invite relaxation beneath the trees or in the cool of the gardens. There are also indoor lounge areas, cosily appointed with fireplaces and local Andean textiles and artefacts, as well as a swimming pool with idyllic views of the countryside. Guestrooms are simply decorated and share the hacienda's overall sense of tranquility and calm; some feature wrought iron four-poster beds.

The restaurant serves mainly organic food grown in the hotel's own garden. There is a small archaeological museum and handicraft shop. Bikes are available for guest use, and self-guided walks around nearby vineyards are also an enjoyable option.
