Small lovely vineyard with 7 rooms, restaurant, communal area and nice garden with swimming pool.
Overlander stay on a separate parking lot with electricity (only from sunset to sunrise). Wifi just reaches the parking. Hot (!!) shower and toilet (flush / tp) available in the main building. Overlanders are allowed to use lobby with seating area, sink to wash dishes (no cooking facilities) and the garden with the pool which makes you feel like staying in the hotel.

The friendly owner Hans has good knowledge of the area, can also help finding mechanics and likes to receive overlander. Depending on the occupancy of the hotel he is also willing to receive more than 2 cars at the same time.

Hans' little paradise. We loved the spot! Not cheap (still 17 us), but definitely worth the money. Sorrounded by vineyards, huge garden/pool area and lots of places to sit/chill inside and outside. Hans is very nice and helped us to find a good mechanic. He brought us to a place nearby to have lunch - the best we had on our whole panam trip. All you can eat and drink, maybe about 10 courses (antipasti, salat, ham, cheese, meat and dessert) for 900 pesos. Highly recommended!

As already noted a great place. We had 4 overlanders staying so able to cope with more than previously mentioned 2.

THE PERFECT PLACE IN MENDOZA. Hans is probably the nicest host we met so far. The amenities are very nice. Beautiful garden with pool, delicious dinner. And Hans helped us to a skilled, good value Mechanic Joge - he also translates for you if in need ;)

The 17 USD are above average, but this place is worth every dime of it.

Perfect spot for resting for some days with excellent facilities, good wine and food and nice owner & staff. The location is very convenient for visiting the vineyards and bodegas in the Maipu region. You can sleep in your camper while you can use the bathroom and living room which are the best for our last 2000 km. Number of camper is limited. Price for camper is 17USD for the night. For booking or inquiries contact Hans +5492616074303 (whatsapp)
Highly recommended! Peter& Teresa

prices as of may 2019:
camping: $17 per night (set in USD)
renting bikes: 300 per bike/day ($7)
laundry (ca 5kg): 300 per load($7)

this prices are more or less coupled to the dollar, so expect increases with the current inflation rate...
Out of season pool not available....

Here, as an overlander, you get very comfortable common areas to hang out, which is invaluable when the weather “goes south” as it did for a day while we were there. On cooler days, the fire place is lit; it’s cozy in there. The shower is exceptional!
We walked into Maipu several times and took back the bus 820/824. Some wine/olive oil tasting is within walking distance also, or rent a bike from Hans.

super accueil de Cynthia et Hans. bel endroit au bout d'un chemin bien praticable. espaces multiples avec ts les services possibles , c parfait. assez loin de la route pour le bruit , au milieu des vignes.

Nice place to relax after weeks of offroad traveling. Nice and friendly owner. We disagree with the negative review. Every place in Argentina has to do with inflation so prices go up. Last week 1 euro was 43.15 pesos now i sah 1 euro is 45.35 pesos. The same happens with food. I think for what you get the price is oke. At least we are happy to stay here in a quiet serounding.

Very nice and klean. Friendly staf/owner.
He can afvice you in all kinds of trips and bodega’s.
Best bathroom ever.
Good price/quality.
600 pesos (2pax + travelcar)

Report Check-In

If 600 is too much go elsewhere! The facilities are perfect. We stayed in the municipal site at Malargue for 130 this year and last year it was 70, so at the same rate of inflation Caviers would be 650! At the end of the day most of us are funding travel in US$. €, or £ and generally costs are the same or a bit less than last year.

As per other descriptions this is a beautiful spot with great facilities and a welcoming, relaxed and super friendly host. Well worth the 600 peso per night over land charge.

Absolutely loved staying here! Hans is super friendly and welcoming. We had a brilliant few days exploring the wineries nearby with lots of helpful tips and recommendations from him. Great facilities and such a bonus to have a pool in a beautiful garden. Definitely a place to relax and enjoy! 600ARP per vehicle.

Pretty much our only option during this season as other campgrounds not open yet. You park in the overflow parking lot, which is some distance from the main lodge. The wifi didn't really reach; you can get it in the lounge, but it's still pretty darn slow. Beautiful grounds and pool of course, and Hans is very nice. Just a bit expensive for the current setup, but probably your best option now.

Report Check-In

Hans has a little blurb for overlanders to read before checking in to confirm his regulations, including price of 600 per night. Very nice man who runs a nice little oasis on edge of a big city. Kitchen is for washing up only; no cooking facilities. Wifi can reach camping area but it's a weak signal that is inconsistent; best to go up to lounge area and even then not fast. 4G cell reception most of the time. Bikes for rent for 250 pesos but you can use for one than one day. Power is available at sites at night only.

Report Check-In

Loved staying here. Grounds are beautiful, staff super nice, pool a treat in that scorching sun, and well that awesome shower with hot hot water and great water pressure in a super modern bathroom. Yes, $600 pesos per vehicle may seem a bit high after staying in the municipal camping near the little towns....but you sink into relaxation here, and have access to the lodge and grounds, and besides sleeping in your own bed instead of theirs, you fell like you are a hotel guest. You can't beat the view of the vineyards out the camper door, or the flower beds on the other side. Great laundry service too.

I recently logged in on this blog to read the comments after one extreme comment of an overlander was posted on tripadvisor claiming my dishonest behaviour. My main business is the lodge of 7 rooms (my business on tripadvisor is the lodge, not the overlander). I received numerous overlanders since the start and it has been great fun. I see a few comments on iOverlander about the price of camping, and iOverlander is the correct place to quote for the overlanders when not staying in the lodge.
We started to receive overlanders in december 2017 when the dollar was about 17,50 pesos, now in october it sometimes reached over 40 pesos for the dolar. As a consequence I adapt the prices as cost of living is also going up in pesos. So when you compare at 19 march 350 pesos for the overlanding was 17,5 USD for the overlanders and on 5 october with a dolar at 38 pesos the price was 13,15 usd (at a rate of 500 to stay) or 15,78 usd (at 600 pesos to stay), Actually means that the last overlanders payed less in usd then the ones before because the price adaptations in pesos did not follow the steep devaluation of the peso.
In this particular situation the blackboard with information for the overlanders was there and already mentioned 600 pesos. Somebody of the staff might have mentioned 500 in stead of 600 (I don´t know), meaning a difference of 2,5 usd.....
So let's say that the price will be somwhere between 13 and 17 usd. If you read the lonely planet all prices in pesos are outdated. Prices in dolars will be mostely stable. Price also rizes if more services are offered.
I hope this explains everything and ofcourse my best regards to everybody.

For some reason Hans the owner decided to charge us 100 pesos more per day than The advertised price. He cited some lame excuse having to do with inflation that happened in between the time we arrived and the time we checked out, 3 days. We don’t condone dishonesty. Avoid this place.

see all comments made before. all true. 500 peso p.p. worth all of it! Don't hesitate to spoil yourselves a night or two!

Beautiful place, but at $500 for two (not negotiable) we didn’t stay.

Beautiful place - probably the nicest we've stayed at for 2 years, but with the rampant inflation it doesn't come cheap. Now 500$ per night for 2 in a van.

Very lovely place surrounded by olivetrees and winefields! The owner Hans is very sympathic. The shower is really good and you can chill inside by the fire.. really recommended this place!!

Report Check-In

We were there for a fantastic asado (450p/p) and then for the night (350 for 2 and the van).
The asado was absolutely worth it, the camping is a bit expensive for the fact that you park on the parking lot.
The place is beautiful though, and close to other wineries you can visit with a rented bike (200p/p).

It is our second stay as a overlander here and both times we stayed longer than we planned... Very quiet and beautiful place. Probably the best choice in Mendoza.

Wonderful upscale overland spot. Super nice posada, completely booked when we arrived here on a Monday night. We were the first family to come here and met a Norwegian overlander from Chile with his Defender here. Paid 350 for our van and a family of four.

Hans is a land Rover fan and owner from what we understand. He knows the region well and can recommend off-road routes of you are into it. Laundry service also available. Still only two vehicles allowed. Very nice!

very nice place, owner super friendly, clean bathroom with hot shower and super good food and wine at the restaurant, I recommend this place, room for only 2 ioverlanders, so you should contact Hans before getting there.

Wonderful little wine farm campsite, very private, only 2 campsites for overlanders but access to boutique hotel facilities (only 6 rooms), very clean and new, pool, showers, toilet, and wifi. Great owner, friendly and helpful. Speaks english originally from Belgium. 250 pesos night; we stayed 2 nights while using this as base to visit Mendoza. Better than every other campground we have been in - exclusive 5 stars!

If you visit Mendoza go to this place! The posada is not a camping but far more better than that. It is a beautiful B&B where Hans , the owner, welcomes also overlanders. You can stay with your car in the middle of his beautiful vineyard. You are allowed to use all the modern and well mantained clean facilities including the nice pool which he offers also to his B&B clients. It is also possible to dinner. We intended to stay one night here but it was so nice that we were three nights there. Last but not least noticed that Hans his hospitality is great.

Hans, a very nice host, allowed us to camp in his beautiful garden in the midst of vineyards and olive plantation. He offered us WC and shower with hot water.
Besides you can stay in one of his lovely rooms in Adobe country house.
There he offers breakfast, bikes, kitchen facilities, visit wineries, 4x4 mountain tours, asado....
We highly recommend this place!
And most important for us: PETS ALLOWED!!!
