OVERVIEW \ WINE REGION guesthouse with rooms starting at $165

La Morada is a private vineyard real-estate project and vacation rental in the foothills of the Andes and in the heart of Argentine wine country. Situated just an hour from Mendoza in the up-and-coming Vale de Uco wine region, La Morada is a self-contained lodge-style accommodation with 4 double rooms, wine cave, shared living and dining areas, fireplace, full kitchen and outdoor terrace facing the mountains. There is a pool on the property as well as bicycles for guests to ride and explore.


Apart from the spectacular vineyard setting and relaxing lodge accommodation, La Morada is directly across the road from acclaimed Argentine Chef, Francis Mallman's restaurant Siete Fuegos featuring seasonal gourmet gastronomy and an excellent local wine list. Guests can also access horseback riding, mountain biking, hiking, and hot springs within the same region.


La Morada de los Andes, Calle de La Siesta, Ruta 94 camino al Manzano Histórico
Vistaflores, Tunuyán, Mendoza.


Deluxe Rooms are $165 and the Great Suite is $190 (rates are per night and include breakfast and wifi)


Be prepared for warm temperatures during the day and cooler mountain temperatures at night. Always bring cash rather than rely on your credit card as most attractions in the area are cash only. One of the most attractive times to stay at La Morada is during the wine harvest festival at the beginning of March, where you can benefit from wine tastings and vineyard tours in the surrounding area.


There are over 15 world-class wineries to visit within the same region of Vale de Uco, including Catena Zapata Winery  and Bodega Salentine.
