As the world’s eighth-largest country, Argentina is home to a vast array of regions: the mighty Iguazú Falls in the sub-tropical northeast; the Mendoza wine region tucked next to the Andes; the glacial wonders near El Calafate in Patagonia’s remote south; and, of course, the buzzy capital city Buenos Aires. Happily, these homey B&Bs will help you get to grips with the drama and beauty of Argentina.

1. Quinta Rufino, Mendoza

Bed and Breakfast

Just one block from wine-loving Mendoza’s bustling Arístides Avenue and four from San Martín Park, family-run Quinta Rufino has pole position for the city’s nightlife. Choose from six colorful rooms, including two tasteful ensuite doubles, each bursting with character, including gaucho-print bedspreads and local artworks on the wall. The spacious roof terrace is a delightful spot to feast on the continental breakfast and line your stomach before a day of wine tasting.

2. Posada Gotan, Buenos Aires

Located close to the Parque Patricios barrio of Buenos Aires – well off the tourist trail – the focal point of this lovely 19th-century B&B is its gorgeous courtyard. Well-appointed rooms have original features, such as exposed-brick walls. Communal spaces include a kitchenette and breakfast room; the first meal of the day features organic produce sourced from local farmers. Italian owners Thibaud and Gabriela are friendly and hospitable.

3. South B&B, El Calafate

Bed and Breakfast

Wake up to outstanding views of Lake Argentino’s turquoise waters and an Andean backdrop while tucked up in bed at family-run South B&B in El Calafate – gateway to Argentina’s portion of Patagonia and Los Glaciares National Park. Spick-and-span rooms offer unbeatable vistas at this budget accommodation. After a hard day’s trekking on the furrowed ice fields of the Perito Moreno Glacier (the owners can arrange tours), unwind on a plush sofa in the comfy living room.

4. Mysten Kepen B&B, Ushuaia

Bed and Breakfast

This modest stay is well positioned in downtown Ushuaia, housed in a corrugated industrial building, typical of this ends-of-the-Earth port city. You’ll likely only be staying here one night, before hopping on or off a boat, and its colorful, cozy interiors are just the tonic before braving the fierce waters and wildlife of the Tierra del Fuego archipelago and Antarctica beyond. Simple rooms are spacious, and a continental breakfast is served in the jolly-looking dining room. Ushuaia’s sights are all walkable on foot: don’t miss a trip to Ramos Generales – a curio-filled general store turned cafe.

5. Panambi Lodge B&B, Iguazú

Bed and Breakfast

Check into a comfy log cabin at Panambi Lodge, in the sub-tropical Iguazú region of northeast Argentina – home to one of the world’s mightiest waterfalls. While some enjoy a river view, all sport hammocks, perfect for lapping up the peace and quiet of this Argentinian Eden and nodding off for a lazy afternoon siesta. Rooms are simple and well-kept, and breakfast is included.

6. Bellevue Bed and Breakfast, Bariloche

Bed and Breakfast

A picture-perfect lake and mountain vista await at the appropriately named Bellevue B&B in the exclusive Llao Llao area of Bariloche – hub of Argentina’s Lake District. This self-catering suite, which forms part of the legendary tea-house complex of the same name, includes a well-equipped kitchenette and, as the only accommodation on site, guests have the run of the large garden. Views extend across Moreno Lake up to Mount Tronador and López. A breakfast of breads, homemade jams, hams and cheeses awaits each morning.

7. Chacra La Calandria B&B, Patagonia

Bed and Breakfast

A beautiful fragrance suffuses Chacra La Calandria as it forms part of a lavender distillery in El Doradillo near Puerto Madryn – gateway to the Península Valdés, where unfortunate-looking elephant seals waddle on beaches and southern right whales breed from May to December. Inspired by Patagonia’s rugged landscapes, the stone suites are built from local rock, and the wood-burning Salamander stoves are most welcome during Patagonia’s tough winter months. The owners take pride in preparing home-baked treats for breakfast.

8. Casa Lila, Mendoza

Taking inspiration from the lilac after which it’s named, Casa Lila’s delightful rooms are spacious, their decor drawing from a varied color palette. Its downtown Mendoza location is convenient for reaching key sights and restaurants on foot, though transport is required for winery exploration. Wooden-beamed ceilings and vintage wardrobes lend cozy touches to rooms; all overlook the attractive garden.

9. AS Nancy, Ushuaia

Bed and Breakfast, Guesthouse

A convenient downtown location means guests at AS Nancy at the end of the world in Ushuaia can easily move around the city by foot. Choose one of the four cosy rooms at this corner property with care, as some, such as the Yellow, offer privileged views of the southernmost city in the world’s Martial Glacier. Shared spaces include the garden and living room.

10. Lago Viedma B&B, El Chaltén

Bed and Breakfast

A downtown location in El Chaltén – adventure capital of Argentina thanks to its proximity to the peaks of Cerro Torre and Mount Fitz Roy – means guests at Lago Viedma B&B can easily get around the Patagonian town on foot. The sunflower-yellow property, with its distinctive corrugated roof, is run by owners who are hot on attention to detail. Elegant, rural-chic reigns in the rooms, and extremely comfy beds ensure a great night’s rest after an active day in the great Patagonian outdoors.
