Villavicencio Spa, Mendoza

3.3
#2 of 6 in Spas in Province of Mendoza
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.

    A place charming, full of cactus, guanacos and native vegetation. With a view not to be missed & unforgettable! And definitely nothing for people with vertigo!

    This dirt road and a single bit challenging keeps gasping for the views it offers, is absolutely worth to follow it.

    Wonderful place, nature, the mountains, the road, everything is beautiful. Hotel is in a fairly conserved State even if it is abandoned. The road is winding and climbing much but the view from the top is amazing

Where to stay in Mendoza

As the center of Argentina's wine industry, Mendoza offers plenty of conventional hostel and hotel options, as well as a good selection of short-term apartments for rent. Visitors taking language courses or spending several weeks on the wine route usually snatch these early in the tourist season (which lasts from mid-December to late-February), so it's a good idea to do some research and contact the owners before you arrive. Keep in mind that some of the town's hostels only offer beds to guests signed up for their wine tours.
