Idyllic lakeside living
Nestled in native forest to the east of the small village of Villa La Angostura, approximately 1.5 hours from Bariloche, Las Balsas has the feel of a exclusive private house. A haven of tranquility overlooking a small bay on the shores of the Nahuel Huapi, it is the perfect place to spend a few days relaxing or exploring the surrounding wilderness.
The quaint blue shutterboard house is effortlessly charming, sitting amidst mature gardens with direct access to a private lakeside beach. Rooms are contemporary yet cosy with oversized windows maximizing stunning views across Nahuel Huapi Lake. A small leisure house offers a gym, Jacuzzi, sauna and swimming pool while the spa incorporates natural ingredients into a range of revitalizing treatments. As a Relais & Chateaux member, the restaurant at Las Balsas is exceptional with innovative dishes designed to reflect the lodge’s natural environment. After dinner, the main lounge area with central fireplace is the perfect spot to retire with a glass of Malbec
Nahuel Huapi National Park offers outdoor enthusiasts many areas of natural beauty including the extinct Tronador volcano, ethereal forests and alpine meadows. Embark on full day lake cruise, hike to discover the famous protected Myrtle forest with a local guide or kayak the tranquil bays and pretty shoreline of the lake.
With a superb view of the lake and surrounding mountains, Las Balsas is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful places to stay in this idyllic Patagonian wilderness.
