Part of the Relais & Châteaux collection of hotels, Eolo is located in La Anita Valley just thirty minutes from El Calafate and close to Perito Moreno Glacier, and the vast tract of land on which the property nestles gives a sense of Patagonia’s enormity. Eolo describes itself as a country lodge modeled on the estancias of old Patagonia, but it has cleverly fused this traditional sensibility with a modern aesthetic and the resulting property is both airy and comfortable.
The lodge’s 17 cozy suites maximize the gorgeous views with floor-to-ceiling windows so there is always a sense of immersion in the environment. Eolo’s staff is knowledgeable and eager to show their home to guests on treks, horseback rides, or mountain bike excursions. In the evening, after an active day of exploration, guests can indulge in a gourmet meal (with plenty of Argentinean wine, of course!) and stargaze at the bright night canopy above.
