Updated: Jan 16, 2023

It seems like a fantasy, a beautiful dream from which you do not want to wake up. But there it is in its maximum splendor, the Calchaquí Valley. Located in the foothills of the Argentine Cordillera, where luxury properties appear among vineyards.

The city of Salta, located in the foothills of the Andes, is the entrance to the Calchaquí Valley. The great attractions of the Valley are the landscapes crowned by the mountains, and a very well preserved architecture. Formerly, it was an important site in the Inca culture.

The American flagged ship was the first of 21 other confirmed cruise ships that will bring about 30,000 tourists from abroad to the port of the city, and to other national ports, since besides mooring at the Port of Buenos Aires, they will do so at the Port of Madryn and the Port of Ushuaia, and some of them will even continue south to explore the Antarctic.

At the center of the Calchaquí Valley is Cafayate. A small city, with an exceptional climate, an average of more than 300 sunny days per year. The vineyards have a high quality wine production. Here is La Estancia de Cafayate, very renowned for its vineyards of Torrontés, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Going north up Ruta 40 and into the mountains is Bodega Colomé, owned by Donald Hess and it is the oldest operating winery in Argentina. It is located in the Alto Valle Calchaquí, located between 1,700 and 3,111 meters above sea level.

Cafayate is undoubtedly a place to live the good life!
