About this Hotel

Price From $150

La Vigna began life in 1880 when a family of Italian immigrants opened the Renaissance revival–style estate and winery in Uruguay’s fertile southwest corner. More than a century later, Argentine owners Agustin Battellini (a former architect) and his wife, Lucila Provvidente (a former psychologist), have maintained the five-room B&B’s rustic charms: milk pails on the walls, llama-wool bedding, furniture made from repurposed sheep pens. They also grow their own organic peaches, watermelon, and figs, which show up in their homemade jams and liqueurs. Ducks, goats, and sheep roam freely—until, well, let’s just say that the hotel makes its own lamb pizza, as well as pecorino cheese, served in La Vigna’s on-site bistro. Sound tempting? Thankfully, both breakfast and dinner are complimentary at La Vigna. In between meals, there are exercise options, too: In the afternoon,  you can borrow a mountain bike (free) and cruise the surrounding countryside.

Free Wi-Fi? Yes.

Credit Cards Accepted None.

Details From $150; breakfast and dinner included.
