Nestled within walking distance from Lake Huapi, the castle is surrounded by verdant forest.

  • It is owned by the procvincia of Neuquén, steeped in history by the way. It is not a place to stay, because it is not public access, but it has a street which surrounds it and can make travel to admire the beauty of the property that dates back to 1939 and the typical architecture of the architect Alejandro Bustillo

  • It is a construction designed by Bustillo which is located in one of the most beautiful of Villa La Angostura. The only drawback is that they let you visit the construction on the inside.

  • It is a splendid building, its architecture is wonderful, its gardens. You can only access with the car and not be stopped. It is a pity given the history that it has, not only is residence of the Governor, but that there were detained Frondizi and Isabel Perón.
