This 18th-century was home to the last governor of Salta appointed by the King of Spain. It has been refurbished to provide all comfort expected from a contemporary hotel, while preserving the essence and attributes of the colonial era. Courtyards, thick adobe walls, iron window bars and ceilings made of carob tree and reed are some of the hotel's enchanting details that evoke the character of a bygone age. Hacienda de Molinos offers 18 spacious rooms in a combination of standard and superior categories. All rooms have carved rafters, carob-tree ceilings and private bathrooms with bathtub and shower. Standard rooms are arranged around the pepper-tree-shaded patio with views of the Calchaquí River and red mountain backdrop. Luxury furnishings define the superior rooms, with rustic decor in contrast to fine design details and art pieces made exclusively for the hotel by local artisans. A cozy public lounge centers on a stone fireplace, while outdoors, the swimming pool enjoys views of the snowcapped Cachi Mountains. Dining is a highlight, with authentic farm recipes using local Andean ingredients. Empanadas and bread are baked in a traditional mud oven, as was customary in colonial times. International dishes are also on the menu, complemented by a wine selection that includes the best labels from the Calchaquí Valleys.
