The current President of Argentina, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, lives next door to Casa Los Sauces. She’s also the owner and interior designer of the hotel. La Cristina, whose dramatic sense of style often draws comparisons to Evita Peron, created an ambiance of refined luxury, which blends hipster bohemian with country chic. Somehow, it works. Meticulously-maintained gardens surround a series of small buildings, which house the individual suites. Each suite has its own unique theme and décor. Don’t miss dinner at La Comarca, the hotel resident. The renowned chef, Ramiro Rodriguez Pardo, trained as a priest in Galicia, had a fling with a nun, then discovered the joy of cooking.
