Beautiful house amongst the vineyards of Maipu
Posted Feb 2, 2014
Villa Victoria is beautiful - a stately old home close to many vineyards & run by some friendly staff.
The location is wonderful if you are there for the vineyards & wine, and the rooms are clean & comfortable (and have air con - a must during a Mendoza summer!).
Ignacio & Giselle were wonderful hosts, and went over & above to make sure all of our daily activities were booked, cars/taxis were organised & dinners booked at local parillas / restaurants.
The pool was a welcome retreat at the end of the very hot Mendoza summer days, and the grounds were manicured & maintained beautifully.
Breakfast was prepared every morning & eaten in the formal dining room, and was a simple selection of fresh fruit, bread, croissants, ham & cheese & condiments, cereal with grins & yoghurt plus of course coffee & tea. This simple breakfast is typical of South America and a lovely light start to the day.
Several nights we even cooked & stayed at the Villa for dinner which was lovely - there are so many places to sit outside and enjoy your meal on the property that it was just as enjoyable as being at a restaurant.
