Casa de Uco just raised the stakes in the already competitive boutique hotel market in Uco Valley, in the heart of Mendoza wine region.

Ollie, Kate B and Alexandra are here to help give you the inside track.

A vision in clean lines, Casa de Uco consists of seven rooms and nine suites featuring elegant muted tones in a sleek contemporary glass and stone main building. The glass is a very deliberate feature given the stunning views out across a lake, 320 acre wine estate and Andes Mountains beyond.

In a welcome nod to the environment the resort's roof has been grassed over (also doubling by night as a stargazing terrace) and the emphasis is on solar power and organic produce.

In such a gourmet region, Casa de Eco does not disappoint, with the restaurant (under the watchful eye of local chef Pablo Torres) serving regional cuisine served, naturally, with some of the region's finest wines, many from the home vineyards. These vintages are also available to sample in the on-site wine cellar and guests can order a picnic to eat among the vines, or enjoy that most Argentinian of specialities - an asado barbecue - in the gardens.

Work off some the asado excess on the Casa de Uco tennis courts, or on the well signed walking, cycling or riding trails. Alternatively, up the indulgence ante even more by the pool, on the floating dock or in the spa that specialises in treatments based on the anti-oxidising properties of vines and grapes. In addition the spa has a sauna, steam room, wet sauna, hydrotherapy baths and Jacuzzi, making it one of the best equipped in the region.

Why we love it

Lovers of the contemporary will dig the design, soon to be enhanced further by the arrival of several new one- and two-bedroomed bungalows in the grounds, complete with rooftop hot tubs for the ultimate indulgent view.
