Los Sauces Casa Patagónica opened in September 2007 to become the luxury hotel in El Calafate, gateway to Los Glaciares National Park. Los Sauces recreates the hospitable and refined spirit of the Patagonian farms of the beginning of the last century. Its architectural style combines rustic features with European influences in a natural garden of willows and rose hips, an oasis crossed by Calafate’s stream where nature is lived and breathed.
Its privileged location in El Calafate’s heart, its wonderful views to El Calafate’s hill and to the imposing Argentino Lake, and its concept of Casa Patagónica (with its 38 suites distributed in 5 independent houses) invites you to live a unique experience on the Land of the Glaciers.
