House of Jasmines is half an hour's drive outside the colonial city of Salta, and was originally bought and restored by actor Robert Duvall and his Argentine wife.
The 120-year-old estancia has a sprawling ranch house and 300 acres alongside the Arenales River. It was converted into an inn by Duvall and was then acquired by the owners of El Colibri estancia in Córboba.
The interiors are done in brilliant white, its rustic-chic guestrooms boast beamed ceilings, four-poster beds, wrought-iron chandeliers, and carefully chosen Argentine antiques. There are no TVs in the rooms but wireless Internet access is available throughout the house.
There's an elegant candlelit dining room where local, seasonal meals are served nightly. A pond-like pool, a small spa with a range of treatments on offer, and a paddock of fine horses complete the property.
Guests can explore Argentina's glorious countryside hiking or horseback riding or simply relax and unwind as they enjoy the surrounding Andes mountain range views from the swimming pool sundeck.
Why we love it
As its name suggests, the house sits on grounds filled with wild jasmine as well as orchids and roses.
