​Ursula Hosting, 2019

We are heading to Argentina! a country that has fascinated the world for centuries with its unique culture and picturesque landscapes.  For our first hosted experience in Argentina, we have chosen to host you in the country's beautiful capital, Buenos Aires, and offer the option to visit Mendoza, Argentina's wine capital.  

Immerse yourself in the first major metropolis in South America, and consider experiencing one of the most breathtaking wine regions in the world.   

Buenos Aires is a cosmopolitan city; it is full of history, culture, and has a world-class restaurant and bar scene.  This is a modern city with a lot of character, and, as you will see, offers a broad range of experiences and activities for international travelers. 

We invite you to spend at least five days with us between November 26th to December 3rd in this beautiful city.  We will show you some of its trendiest neighborhoods, share some of its history and traditions, and curate experiences that will give you a taste of the local arts, culture, and nightlife.

In addition, you will have the option to:

  • Add additional nights in Buenos Aires and/or

  • Add a trip to Mendoza (2 night minimum)

 

These options can be added before or after our hosted extravaganza in Buenos Aires. 

During your stay in Buenos Aires, you will:

  • Admire the iconic European-influenced architecture of the city's historic neighborhoods.

  • Visit interesting museums, gorgeous plazas, and lively markets.

  • Enjoy shows, tango, live music, and the city's nightlife.

  • Be invited to participate in local traditions, such as how to prepare mate.

  • Share a glass (or two) of wine with friends, and indulge in delicious local cuisine.

  • Join locals in happening places away from the crowds of tourists. 

  • Celebrate thanksgiving among new and old friends Argentinian style.

  • And much more...

Our home in Buenos Aires is located in one of the most famous neighborhoods, Palermo; a vibrant locale that we know you will love to explore.   

What about Mendoza?

Mendoza might not be as well known as Buenos Aires, but it is a destination you won't want to miss. The reason? Its famous wine, Malbec, of course!

Mendoza is the main wine region of Argentina where most of the Argentinean Malbec is produced. The city is located on the west side of the country, right next to the Andes, an easy hour-long flight from Buenos Aires.  

 

For those who would like to visit Mendoza, we recommend at least two nights, which will be enough time to:

  • Have a full day of wine tasting in some of the best wineries (bodegas) in the area.

  • Go horseback riding along the Andes with local gauchos (cowboys) right before sunset.

  • Experience a famous Argentinian asado (BBQ).

  • Enjoy the wine country lifestyle.

We have additional options for activities in Mendoza if you would like to stay more than two nights, or would like to try other activities (for example, day trips around the Andes, hiking, and, of course, more wine tasting). Feel free to contact us for more information. 

As always, we have curated a comprehensive itinerary for our guests, thought of every detail, and promise that you will have a great time exploring another fascinating destination.

  • We have a variety of options for those interested in joining us, but space and time is limited. Make your reservations soon.
