The lodge, with its enormous natural scenic backdrop of hills, rivers and mountains, is located in Barreal, a beautiful small tourist village in Calingasta, San Juan province, Argentina. Its climate, pure air, clear skies, tree-lined avenues and natural beauty turn Barreal into a true Andean paradise. It is the exact spot to choose to remove oneself from the madding crowd. Thousands of years of geologic transformations have provided the surroundings with spectacular landscapes inhabited by unique species of plant and animal life. To be in Barreal is to commune with the awesome nature of the Andes. An average of three hundred nights of clear skies make the pristine vault of heaven above this area one the most moving sights around the world, while they display the full magnificence of the Milky Way for us.
