A time-capsule stay in Mendoza

  • 5 of 5

What a treat to stay in a classic Villa in Mendoza. The whole property feels like a time travel to an era when the pace was allowing for the afternoon siesta, long dinners, and free-flowing wine. Wait, that's vacation!

The whole house has the comforts one needs when away from home for a considerable time. If you make the trip during the major heat of the summer, the pool is a must, but if you are used to the northern winters, a fresh dip is a fun idea!

I have stayed at the villa on three different occasions during the last five years, while on a work/pleasure trip down to Mendoza - perfectly secluded when a quiet moment is needed, yet less than 20 minutes from the core of the city of Mendoza.

I highly recommend this property, and do not hesitate to ask Ann and Peter, the owners, for any recommendations, as they have been going down to South America for nearly ten years now!

Beautiful home and perfect base for wine country visit

  • 5 of 5

Lovely and very very very spacious home. The perfect location to use as a base for your wine country vacation. Very helpful to have Oscar and Soledad on this property with you. The home owner, Ann Sperling is great to work with.Very responsive to any questions or needs you may have. Cannot think of a better home to rent.

An island of beauty and peace!

  • 5 of 5

We so appreciated our stay at this elegant and welcoming home. It is amazing to enter through the gate from a busy area in the Mendoza region and find an oasis of peace and comfort. This has to be one of the top vacation rental properties in the wine country there. Most of the larger wine producers are fairly close by, and Chakras is a charming upscale small town about 15 kilometers from the city of Mendoza. There are excellent places to shop for food just right there outside the walls. Butcher, vegetable and fruit store, wine vendor, general grocery market, pastry shop - all right there. Quite amazing, actually. We love to eat and it was no problem at all. Also many wonderful dining opportunities with small and very good restaurants right in the town.

The caretakers are friendly and very helpful, and we were able to communicate with them amazingly well even though for some of our non-spanish speaking members there were time of lots of waving and smiling. We did not have time to take advantage of an asada which they do provide, but will save that for another time. Ann was very friendly and helpful in answering questions and responding to our needs.

The pool is so lovely (temperature not too cold!) and children's play equipment combined for a piece of heaven for our young children. This property was a perfect for us, and we recommend it highly. Would go back in a heartbeat!

Beautiful villa to relax and explore Mendoza from

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 families visiting from Canada (10 in total) and found this incredible villa through Homeaway. Turns out it's owned by a Canadian wine making family, which provided an extra special connection. We had originally booked for 3 nights and upon arrival immediately requested an additional night, which was fortunately possible. What an amazing home right in the middle of Mendoza wine region. We were able to walk to several wineries and restaurants from the house and everything else is easily accessible by car. The property is very well maintained, very spacious and well equipped with everything we needed. Ann recommended a visit to Clos de Chacras winery, which is a pleasant walk from the house. Wow, what a gem and the lunch we had was absolutely superb. Villa Viamonte is an easy 10 out of 10 and I can't wait to go back.

Spacious villa on beautiful lot on the outskirts of Mendoza

  • 3 of 5

I recently stayed at Villa Viamonte with 5 of my friends. While the villa is spacious and on a very nice lot with a giant pool. The architecture and grounds really are great! People should be aware it is not super close to town and taxis are limited so you may need a car or car service to get around. That said, the town of Chacras de Coria is a walkable town with plenty of restaurants - all within walking distance to the villa. The villa also provided great proximity to wineries in the Lujan de Cuya and Miapu regions. Back to the villa...The ability to speak Spanish is immensely helpful as the people who live onsite and take care of the property do not speak any English. Using Google translate, we were able to arrange for them to prepare a traditional asado for us and it was fabulous...so much food! Some of the issues we experienced include:

- villa wasn't stocked well with toilet paper, bath towels or any drinking water

- some ant problems (live and dead)

- no dryer as listing indicated (not a big deal unless it rains the entire time you are there like it did for us)

- the villa was a bit musty (especially the bedrooms and office, which we used as a bedroom)

- door keys all hung unlabeled on a board in the kitchen so finding specific keys when needed was challenging

- villa cleaning did not happen during our stay as indicated at booking

Finally, make sure to get a local contact number for the onsite staff so you can contact them in an emergency. We had two such occasions - 1, we were given the wrong physical address for the villa so without a contact number we had to search the street door-to-door to find the correct villa and 2, the security gate/door wouldn't close one day. Since the staff were away for the day (it was a Sunday) and didn't answer their door, we were forced to email the property owner in Canada for help. This was not efficient and cost us several hours each day just trying to get help.

Overall, we had a wonderful time in Mendoza and at the villa which really is its own private oasis.

historic villa in charming village surrounded by vinyards

  • 5 of 5

This lovely villa, set in well kept grounds with swimming pool, provided us with a refuge and place to enjoy each other. Within walking distance of shops including pastries, fruits and vegetables, meats, restaurants, etc. We stayed 3 nights - stay longer and use it as a base to explore the Mendoza area. The owner is in Canada but has a caretaker on site.
