This is your property ?


Poncho Huasi is run by an Englishman and his Argentine wife who have lived and travelled all over the world.

Alicia has roots that go back generations in this part of Argentina: she is a direct descendant of Col Bonifacio Ruiz de los Llanos, one of the gaucho leaders of the liberation army who fought the Spaniards in the nineteenth century.

Her husband Nick is an English journalist with a passion for travel who has finally settled in Salta: "because something kept drawing me back... and it wasn't just Alicia!"

What we offer is a personal service from beginning to end: we will meet you at the airport and bring you to Poncho Huasi where we're sure you will soon forget the stresses of modern life in the comfortable surroundings of our old colonial house.

After lazing by our pool during the day, or relaxing in a hammock in one of the two gardens, you can find yourself a quiet corner in our large living room, with a log fire for those occasional cold winter evenings.

We know the best places to eat, drink and listen to traditional music; and where to sample Salta's incessant nightlife.

We provide a perfect base to explore the North West of Argentina, and can arrange every aspect of your holiday to the finest detail should you so wish.

If it's adventure you're after, there's rafting, trekking rock climbing and horseriding; jungle, desert and puna expeditions in 4x4 vehicles.

The Wild North West has it all! Just let us know what you want and we'll arrange it.

Location & area

We are in the sleepy town of Cerrillos just outside Salta city, on the Wine Route to Cafayate.

We are ideally situated to explore the stunning variety of scenery and activities the North West has to offer; the Calchaquies valleys and the wine region to the south, the Quebrada de Humahuaca to the north, and San Antonio de los Cobres and the Puna to the west.

There are frequent buses from a stop 10 yards away from our front door: into Salta, and down into the Calchaquies valleys.

We are happy to advise you on every aspect of your holiday and arrange any trips you are interested in.

Amenities & services

Pride of place goes to the double ensuite room which leads out into its own secluded garden. Twin and single rooms, both ensuite and with a shared bathroom are also available.

There's a large breakfast room and lounge with a log fire for those occasional cold winter evenings.

Among the modern comforts added to this traditional colonial house are cable TV and wifi internet, so you can keep in touch with the real world as much or as little as you want to.

Stepping out from the breakfast room, there is a terrace onto to the first garden, and a passageway leading to the large back garden which offers a spectacular view of the hills, and contains the swimming pool.

Alicia, a teacher, also offers residential Spanish courses.
