In the core of the Patagonian mountain range, surrounded by lakes, rivers and an ancient forest, there is a town resembling a shire: Villa La Angostura

) of the Quetrihué Peninsula, where it is nestled. It maintains the air, the harmony and quietness of a mountain village, ideal to relax and rest with the family.

international airport, Villa La Angostura brandishes a varied hotel and gastronomic offer suitable for all tastes and needs.
Its typical mountain architecture seduces visitors when it comes to choosing accommodation. Over 3,000 beds are distributed along the shores of the main bays, thus completing the natural aesthetics and a matchless structure.
Among the main attractions, the Myrtle Forest, an exclusive natural relic in the area, can be accessed on foot, by bike or on a catamaran sailing across the waters of majestic Nahuel Huapi.
Sport fishing has a complete variety of special environments, which position Villa la Angostura among the spots preferred by lovers of fly-fishing.
Beaches, forests and mountains change their appearance according to the season and offer a wide range of alternatives to visit the place and get to know it from very different perspectives. Quiet strolls, adventure, sailing and horseriding across the mountain, to mention a few activities, comply with the fantasy of getting away into an amusing vacation.
