Set among beautiful orchards and rolling farmland, the original 1880 La Vigna was once set up as a winery by a family of Italian immigrants from Piedmont. Today, more than 120 years later, La Vigna is a warm and exclusive Country House Hotel, rigorously restored by its current owners.
La Vigna features a new concept in the art of hospitality; a pleasant combination of indigenous country life and the exquisite comfort required by the demanding contemporary traveler. La Vigna is a haven in the country offering serenity, homemade delicacies, and heavenly landscapes that invite you to relax and enjoy a balanced mixture of European rural architecture and avant-garde exotic, refined interior design, the rural appeal of a healthy and natural lifestyle as well as modern comfort.
Housed in that old family winery, La Vigna is at once a versatile and heterogeneous place: at times, your living-room at home; sometimes, a mountain refuge in the Piedmont countryside and at other times, just a meeting place to share and enjoy with friends.
Number of rooms: 5
Languages spoken: Spanish, English, Italian, French.

Dining at Estancia La Vigna
La Vigna makes their own food products, which are based on the care of and respect for nature and a healthy lifestyle. The Organic Garden, ecology-concerned and respectful breeding of farm animals and fruit trees provide the raw materials necessary to create each of the flavors offered by La Vigna's organic gourmet cuisine. Herbs and aromatic spices - the leading ingredients in good eating culture - are handpicked and then sun-dried so as to keep their full flavor and scent. They make traditional jams, liqueurs, chutneys and preserves, in addition to some extravagant products exclusively created by La Vigna.
For mealtimes, stylish, exotic and colorful dishes merge into those taken from Italian immigrant communities of the Piedmont region which have been coming here for the past 130 years. La Vigna is a place to listen to good music, taste some of the specialty regional cheese boards, tapas and homemade delicacies, served with good wine, or simply a place to relax and linger.
This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
