Why we like this estancia

  • Just outside the town of El Calafate, Eolo feels just remote enough without requiring long travel times to get there
  • Sip a glass of Malbec while watching the changing light on the landscape through the floor to ceiling windows
  • The service is faultless, with attentive, welcoming staff 
  • Eolo is a Relais & Chateaux hotel, and the fresh, beautifully presented food does not disappoint
  • Go horse riding, trekking, mountain biking or wildlife spotting amid the great vistas of La Anita Valley and Mount Frias

The restaurant

Hotel Eolo is incredibly proud of its restaurant, and with good reason. This is one of the few places in Patagonia where you can experience Relais & Chateaux standard cuisine, and each meal brings together international techniques and the Patagonian touch. Fresh, regional produce is used throughout, and all wines come exclusively from Argentine wineries.

The other element that rather steals the show in the restaurant is the view from the enormous windows. The hills stretch out in every direction from just in front of your table, so you can watch the landscape wake up in pinks and oranges at sunrise, or the wind swirl across the grass, whilst enjoying some of the best food in the region.

Excursions and facilities

There is a swimming pool, sauna and massage/treatment rooms on site, as well as a pleasant garden area with sun loungers for those want to use their stay as an opportunity to switch off, and relax in the surroundings. There is also a library and telescope for clear nights, and outside decking to enjoy the views.

If you do want to go out and explore, excursions include hiking, horse riding, mountain biking, zip lining, and visits to the nearby Perito Moreno Glacier, one of the highlights of the region and well worth a visit. Not all excursions are included, so check in advance depending on what you want to do.
