Listen to the wind in the trees!
Three separate chalets on our vineyard property can be rented together as an exclusive compound to accommodate private groups of up to 16 adults, or as separate vacation cabañas for individual families. The 100-year old adobe Casona, refurbished with all modern conveniences, has 2 bedrooms and sleeps up to 7 adults. The newly-constructed thatch roof addition with Loft and Tuscan-style kitchen is completely independent, and sleeps from 4 to 5 adults. And our smaller suite is perfect for 2 or even 4 adults. Children under the age of 12 cannot be accepted due to the hazards of a working farm.
Each cabaña is furnished with well-equipped kitchens, linens, free Wifi and private outdoor grills, and the large Casona also has Directv. Both the Casona and the Loft unit feature wood-burning fireplaces in the living area and ample space for dining and entertaining plus a thatched veranda. A large swimming pool nestles under the trees adjacent to the homes and the huge gardens provide outdoor cooking in a country-style clay oven. Covered parking for up to 5 vehicles is on the property.

Es una finca hermosa, con espacio y tranquilidad para pasar unas vacaciones ideales. La casa cuenta con todo para para descansar y cocinar que es lo fundamental, hasta pudimos probar las uvas del viñedo, por lo que nos encantó. Es altamente recomendable y volvería sin dudarlo. Juan Mateo Basaldua, Ramos Mejia, Argentina Febrero, 2017
This is a great little finca near everything and of the beaten path. A great place to relax and enjoy the grounds after a day of exploring. Beautiful rustic charm. The hosts and there agents are amazing, warm, welcoming and so helpful. Can't go wrong with a stay here. Thank you for sharing your finca with us. We had a lovely time. Miguel was wonderful! David & Janet Blumberg, California, United States, January, 2017
Muy buena, hermosa casa. Tranquilidad. Durante nuestra estadía nos tocaron vecinos muy educados y buenos. Nos integramos todos. Tranquilidad y Naturaleza. Siempre Atento Miguel el responsable aquí, y excelentes recomendaciones de paseos y comidas., Esteban Pensotti, Villa Brown, Argentina, January 2017
La cabaña era exactamente como se ve en las fotos y mejor aún. Tiene todo lo necesario para disfrutar la estadía completamente. La parrilla y el horno de barro dentro de la casa nos permitieron disfrutar del calor y de unos buenos asados sin movernos de allí. Miguel ha sido un excelente anfitrión, siempre disponible para lo que necesitemos. El lugar super tranquilo, ideal para descansar con una hermosa vista a los viñedos de Paco, cuyo vino es altamente recomendable. Esperamos volver pronto. Cristian Gallinal San Fernando, Argentina, March 2016
A lovely cabin, rustic but clean, everything worked great! The host was very accommodating and prompt with our questions, and even drove out of her way to come meet us and bring us to the cabin! Be sure to try the wine made there on the host's vineyard, it's delicious! Nicole Weyandt, Detroit, United States, December 2015
Un lugar muy lindo y tranquilo con todo lo necesario en un ambiente confortable. Paco y Toody fueron muy cordiales en todo momento. La experiencia estuvo genial!! Lorena Pintado, Argentina,September 2015 We stayed here for 3 1/2 months during the late Summer, early Fall and loved every minute of it. The cabana is a new build with antique furnishings and you wouldn't guess it's only a couple of years old. As well as tons of charm, it has a big fireplace, wood burning oven and big kitchen space. The space is very bright and you'll love waking up to a view over Paco & Toody's vineyard of 100% malbec grapes. We met Paco and Toody, as well as Patricia the caretakers, who were all extremely accommodating and helpful, as well as just great people all-round. They will also answer any questions on local activities that you could think of. Location-wise it's situated a 20min drive from San Rafael centre, which is great as you'll rather stay here than the cabanas situated closer (trust me). A local corner shop doesn't sell as much as the supermarkets in town, but we found they had better meat than any of the bigger butchers. Roadside stalls and local farmers sell fruit & veg as well as sundries. The Ukrainian up the road is worth a visit for homemade smoked pork and flavoured vodkas. I really have zero complaints and would hate to stay anywhere else when we return next time! For us it was no doubt our favorite vacation rental we ever stayed in. Sebastian Karlsson, United Kingdom, June, 2015

Marcelo Begue, Buenos Aires, Argentina, January, 2015

Nos encanto la cabaña Rancho Divino en San Rafael, Mendoza. La decoración te transporta a otro tiempo, mientras estas inmerso en la naturaleza, la tranquilidad es completa y la casa es perfecta para descansar y relajarse con tu pareja. También es un placer hacer un rico asado con un buen vino. En general la experiencia fue excelente! Juliana Ramirez, Medellin, Colombia, November, 2014
Highly recommended. We (6 adults) stayed at lovely Rancho Divino in September, 2014, for a conference in nearby San Rafael. It was well worth the easy 20 minute drive to stay out in the country, on a vineyard! There are mercados, carnicerias and fresh fruit & vegetable stands all along the way, so getting supplies was easy. The house is actually an old 3 bedroom farm house on a vineyard, with a kitchen and bathroom and large central living space with fireplace. There is a separate, attached apartment with a loft. The house has Wifi (we used this all the time), and satellite TV (we never used this). We grilled on the outdoor grill several times which was especially nice. There is covered parking for at least 3 cars (important if it hails). We were here in early Spring, so the nights were cold but the space heaters kept the bedrooms cozy and warm. The house and property are just as the pictures show - everything was clean and beautiful. Many of the furnishings and fixtures are reclaimed local items; the owners have done a wonderful job of making this farmhouse a picturesque retreat from the city. Overall, this was a great experience. Mike Cannon, Salt Lake City, United States, September 2014
