  • We passed by the residence in Van, it can not be stopped but if you move slowly. It is a building that has the style Bustillo, famous for having been the place of detention of María Estela Martinez de Perón for 7 months.

  • With mid morning, spare a couple of hours, to visit this eccentric place, where lie some Presidents of the nation and their families on short holiday periods of winter. Their view and direct access to the Lake, enjoying a relaxing de-stressing and a delight for your eyes.

Where to stay in Villa La Angostura

Villa La Angostura's increasing popularity with winter sports enthusiasts from distant corners of the world drives up hotel room prices at the height of the ski season in July and August. Summer (November to February) is equally popular here, and most single rooms book up months in advance. Budget travelers can take advantage of economical hostels or try one of the area's campgrounds--arguably the best way to stay close to Angostura's natural attractions.
