  • rooms

    With soothing neutral tones and a captivating mix of antique and contemporary, the 14 rooms at this beautiful estancia pay homage to the origins of the building, ooze French country house style and could happily grace the front covers of a pick of interiors magazines. With their signature style, the Fenestraz Family have created a true oasis, a home from home of the kind many of us would love to emulate. As you might expect, all rooms offer Wi-Fi, safe and heating/ air-conditioning. The generous beds feature hand embroidered linen and soft cushions and bathrooms are modern and bright.

    The welcoming standard rooms are in the main part of the estancia, overlooking the park, and offer a King size bed.

    Like the rest of the property, the Junior Suites are decorated in beige, light brown and ivory hues in keeping with the stunning regional scenery. Located in their own building, the Junior Suites offer an integrated living room with armchairs, satellite TV and a minibar as well as a private terrace with an incredible view of the mountains. The bedroom can be configured as a king-size double or a twin room.

    In addition, there are three exclusive suites and a beautifully furnished Higher Room in an adjoining residence. Decorated to reflect the tones and personality of Northern Argentina and scented by the fresh flowers that grow in the gardens, each of the rooms has a separate entrance, living room with satellite TV and minibar as well as a private terrace with wonderful views to the Andes. The bedroom can be configured as a king-size double or a twin room. Bathrooms are particularly spacious with bath, separate shower and dual sinks.

    The Higher Room is located in the house next to the main building and can be interconnected to one of the Suites; as such it is an ideal choice for families or a group of friends.

  • facilities & activities

    The hotel is truly a haven of calm and as such the emphasis is really on relaxation. There is a light and spacious lounge with open fire, small library with TV and a charming garden room- the perfect spot to relax with a book. For a chance to buy some of the beautiful local crafts, there is a small on-site boutique. With Wi-Fi available throughout most of the property you don’t have to disconnect entirely from the outside world.

    Outside, you will find a small heated pool (June- September) with loungers, perfect for soaking up the lovely views of the property, which extends to 300 acres. With undulating park land, eucalyptus, vibrant flowers and of course, the lovely scents of jasmine and roses there is much to tempt you outside. Bikes are available if you would like to explore more of the beautiful grounds and if you wish to venture further afield, staff are happy to provide information on what activities are available in the region, including horse-riding. Squash fans might like the opportunity to practice paddleball (the Argentine equivalent of squash) on the House of Jasmines court.

    The purpose built Spa offers a tempting selection of beauty treatments and is equipped with a Dry Sauna, Hammam (steam bath), three private rooms and two rooms for relaxing. In summer, outdoor massages, on the edge of the pool with a view to the Andes and in the refreshing shade of a gazebo are a must-have experience.

  • dining

    Breakfast here ticks lots of boxes; choose to eat on the charming outside terrace in Summer or in the lovely garden room. Whatever you preference, with an emphasis on fresh fruit and juices, tempting home-made pastries and breads, local jam and eggs to order, breakfast is definitely to be enjoyed at leisure.

    The House of Jasmine’s afternoon tea is another treat not to be missed, with tasty sandwiches, freshly baked scones and cakes.

    The hotel’s restaurant La Table, offers a locally inspired menu for lunch and dinner, featuring fresh produce from the hotel gardens and home-made dishes- all beautifully presented. Vegetarians are well-catered for and wine-lovers will appreciate the excellent selection of wines.

    If you prefer a more casual meal, room-service is also available or you can of course venture into Salta where there is a wide choice of eateries.

  • family

    The House of Jasmines is more boutique hotel than a working estancia, so particularly appeals to couples. That said, there are no age restrictions and the hotel extends a warm welcome to families. Children will enjoy visiting the orchard and collecting fruits and vegetables, learning to prepare simple local dishes with the chef, or cycling, walking or riding llamas! From a practical point of view the hotel is happy to provide cots free of charge for children under 2 years old. Extra beds are available for older children for an additional charge.

  • location

    The hotel is just a short drive from the charming town of Salta, on Route 51, in the North West of Argentina, about a two hour flight from Buenos Aires. Most visitors arrive into Salta Airport, from where it is about a 5 minute drive. The hotel provides a free airport transfer during the day (except on Sundays) or you can opt for a local taxi.
