A little out of the ordinary…
Day 1–2: Buenos Aires
Big, bustling Buenos Aires is known for its age-old charms: from the cobbled streets of San Telmo to the art-strewn streets of La Boca. But it’s far from stuck in the past: fashionable Palermo brims with drinking dens and restaurants, and the old Puerto Madero docklands have been revived. Combine that with some of the best steak and red wine in Latin America and you’ll leave intoxicated by the heady Argentinian capital.

RoomSuperior Twin Room
As stylish as the city outside, Hotel Pulitzer swells with designer furniture, rich fabrics and deep colours of blue and black. The Visit cocktail lounge is the place for a laid-back drink or snack, while regular music nights at the rooftop Sky Bar keep it swinging during the South American summer. Some rooms are styled by Spanish designer Lázaro Rosa-Violán; others nod to the hotel’s literary roots with an in-house library.

Day 3–5: San Martín de los Andes
In the heart of the Patagonian Lake District, San Martín de los Andes puts you in reach of Lanín National Park and its eponymous, cone-shaped volcano. With water, water everywhere, there are endless opportunities to get active too, on boats, kayaks, two legs or four wheels. If it’s downtime you’re after, simply kick back with the scenery or sample the region’s hearty cuisine.
RoomDeluxe with Terrace room
Warm shades of red, yellow and green reflect the ever-changing natural landscape around this secluded, seven-room inn. Snug sofas and cosy blankets line up around a huge open fire and there’s the promise of good food and wine at the river-facing restaurant. Spend time taking a dip, relaxing on the riverside beach or indulging in an in-room spa treatment.

Day 6–9: Mendoza
Surrounded by snow-dusted Andean peaks and flatlands filled with vines, Mendoza stands at the heart of Argentina’s wine country, in an area famed for its production of malbec, cabernet sauvignon and shiraz grapes. Prepare to raise a glass (or bottle) in the final part of your Argentinian adventure.
SettingNeat lines of vines
This beautiful finca stands amid a century-old, malbec-producing vineyard in the heart of Mendoza’s wine region. Owned by the same family for three generations, it exudes a sense of history and character, especially in the Old House, with its book-stocked library and photograph-lined walls. There’s the chance to get involved with local traditions, such as cooking on an open asado (barbecue), or sample the hotel’s home-made, clay-oven-cooked empanadas. Park-like gardens, terraces and an outdoor pool, complete the luxurious feel.
Smith ExtraA bottle of Malbec Finca Adalgisa for stays of one or two nights, and a dinner for two with wine at the hotel's restaurant for stays of three or more nights
An oenological tour of Mendoza
When to go
Patagonia is most accessible during spring (September to November), when wildflowers coat the landscape, or the summer months (December to February). Mendoza is also lovely during autumn (March to May), when the landscape burns with reds and golds, and the Grape Harvest Festival takes place in in the first week of March with dancers, performers and fireworks. In short, Argentina is a year-round destination, with benefits to every season. Even winter (June to August) brings the promise of ski opportunities in Bariloche and the chance to catch the Buenos Aires Tango Festival in the capital during August.
The trip starts and ends in Buenos Aires. All domestic flights and transfers are included, as well as listed excursions and stays in a selection of Smith’s best boutique hotels. You’ll need to arrange international flights separately. The Smith24 team are on hand to assist with all travel arrangements.
Trainers for taking on the avenidas of Buenos Aires, swimwear for down days by the pool and extra baggage for transporting wine back home.

How can I trust Mr & Mrs Smith's hotel choices?

What if I want to add on a few extra nights or arrange a special meal? Can I add on a waterskiing lesson? I've always fancied that… And can we stay in the honeymoon suite instead?
