“Laid back and casual ranch in an idyllic setting.”

La Tapera is situated in the Uco Valley area about an hour south of Mendoza. We booked 5 nights over Christmas relying totally on reviews and photos on line. We'd loved it: the location, the views, the people and the area. The owner, Francisco, lives in Mendoza but he is in contact continually and the ranch is run by the super efficient Patricia. Luckily for us our future son-in-law speaks Spanish, as the rest of us are language impaired, and Patricia does not speak any English. I don't think it would matter though. She is very helpful and assisted by showing us the Argentinian BBQ method, made dinner for us on our first late night arrival and set out breakfast for us every morning.
We had anticipated going into Mendoza on day trips, but it turned out to be a little far and we had better options right in the area. There are fabulous wineries close to the ranch and Francisco arranged for Luz Toso, a travel and tour guide who lives on Estancia Los Fresnos nearby, to take care of us. We had a wonderful time. She arranged a full time driver, Oscar, vineyard visits, horseback riding and a BBQ lunch on her family's ranch and dinner reservations. We went into the nearest town for provisions on the first day as Christmas was a 5 day weekend with many places closed.
The house is spacious, casual and laid back. There are in and outdoor dining and sitting areas, hammocks and day beds. The house is well stocked with basics like tea, coffee, paper products etc and all the items you would have at home. It reminded me of the ranch style homes in South Africa, with wide porches, sliding doors and pool views, except we had the snow capped Andes as a backdrop! It's a polo horse ranch and you can go riding if you so desire. Beware, the horses are trained polo ponies, so are very sensitive and turn on a dime with the slightest touch.
Thanks to Patricia, Oscar our driver, and Francisco. We loved it.
See my reviews of the places we visited in our neighborhood: Siete Fuegos (Francis Mallman's restaurant at The Vines resort), O Fournier, (wine tasting tour of their very impressive, state-of-the-art, winery with gorgeous architecture, followed by the most delicious lunch overlooking their trout dam and the Andes), Antucura Bodega and Vineyard (delicious Christmas Day lunch overlooking their vineyard and sculpture garden) and Bodegas Salentine (another stunning site, wine tasting and tour, delicious lunch and visit to their art gallery)

“Catch your breath”
Reviewed 19 May 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We are an extended group of friends from South Africa that travelled to South America in December 2013. We spent 3 days at La Tapera over Christmas and were completely blown away but the beautiful farm! It was the perfect location to catch our breath after a busy itinerary and really just enjoy the great local countryside. The house is perfectly equipped for relaxing, cooking, catching up on sleep, enjoying the pool and then some!
