The El Cortijo Hotel is both small and intimate, located in the small town of Cachi on the famous driving circuit out of Salta to Cafayate. Usually used as a single night stop over, it has all of the facilities that you can ask for from a simple hotel. The building was once a family home and there is still a feeling of being at home with inviting log fires and a small private courtyard in which to relax.

Quite a new addition to the accommodation in Cachi, El Cortijo Hotel is certainly already one of the best options in the village. Lovingly renovated, this small building has a lot to offer. The main area is warm and inviting with a small fire crackling away (even in the summer time the evenings here can be cold), and comfortable sofas in which to relax for a pre diner drink or two.

The restaurant that runs off the entrance is arguably the best in the village and offers a whole range of regional and traditional options.

The rooms themselves are on the simple side and set off a long, balconied walkway. Each has ensuite facilities and is very basic, but comfortable with plenty of bedding for the cool Andean evenings.

All in all, with the location of the hotel being perfect for exploring the nearby town square, this is a great option for a night or two as you head through this visually stunning area of the world.
