El Manantial del Silencio
- Stay facing the spectacular Hill of Seven Colours in the Quebrada de Humahuaca Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage-listed site
This charming hotel, set in tranquil gardens, is just a five-minute walk from the tiny village of Purmamarca in Argentina's north western Jujuy Province. Built out of indigenous materials – adobe walls and cane-and-wood roofing – El Manantial maintains the spirit of colonial architecture.
A large, sunny dining room serves local dishes and the solar-powered pool is popular year round. 19 spacious guestrooms are furnished with locally woven rugs and traditional crafts, and simple windows frame views of red-rock cliffs. The property also includes a two-bedroom self-contained house popular with families.
