Where you’ll be

Cachi, Salta, Argentina

Cachi is a very small magical town on the top of the mountains, time runs at a different pace getting the feeling you are in a different planet, city problems and stress just disappear as soon as you get there. The house is two blocks away from the central Plaza, church and museum. Surrounding this main square are nice local restaurants and shops. Here is where the Cacheños gather at dusk to socialize and gossip, ideal scene to watch from Cafe Olivers while having a cool Salta beer or local wine!

I am an Art Historian from Buenos Aires, Argentina, currently living in Beaune, France. I work for a high-end tourism company, so my main activity is travelling and culture.
My family own two beautiful properties in Argentina which we let on Air bnb: One in Tigre, in Buenos Aires, and the other in the Andes, in a small town called Cachi. My parents, Jacqueline and Eric are wonderful hosts, when they are there, though often you will have either home to yourself.
Favourite book? Fierce Invalids by Tom Robbins
Favourite film? Blade Runner.
Can't live without? Good friends. Being out in the middle of nowhere at least twice a year. Good wine. Good food. Intellectual stimulation.
