Villavicencio Spa, Mendoza

(3.3/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
Take in the panoramic view of peaks and valleys from the cream-colored mountainside chalet of Villavicencio Spa. The quaint spa and hotel have been closed for years, but the building and view it provides remain popular nonetheless. A hairy drive up a winding mountain road brings you to this scenic spot, but you may be more comfortable catching a ride with someone who knows the route. Bring your camera, as you'll pass many guanacos along the way. Don't forget snacks either, as the remote spot has no place to buy refreshments.

  • Beautiful ride. Currently they are painted the exterior to its original façade. The Chapel is very cute and is well preserved. The gardens are regularly maintained. Anyway if you are near I think that it is a beautiful promenade. They have a "dining room" at the base before accessing whose price is moderate.

  • We visited the hotel Villavicencio on a Tour where they were telling all the moments passed by the hotel and the route to reach it. Nice place to visit.
