Hotel Type

Country Inn

The town of Garzon was founded in 1892 and used as a rest village for farmers traveling over the nearby stream where the governor of the state, Vicente Garzon, operated one of the country's largest cattle ranches. For much of the following century the town operated with a single wheat mill and mere 2000 inhabitants. The village is 40-kilometers from Jose Ignacio, the hip and ever expanding beach enclave of models and celebrities, that's quickly surrounding the village with tourists and visitors. Hotel Garzon is operated by one of South America's leading chef's, Francis Mallmann, who creates a foodie-sanctuary for restaurant patrons who just can't part from his cooking creations. The small stone-accented hotel features endless courtyards leading from the messy-chic lobby with well-manicured pool area surrounded by wooden benches and dark-wood tabletops. At night the property comes alive with cricket chirping and lanterns igniting the horizon at one of the most romantic hotels in South America. 

The Room

Surrounded by an intricate design of old palm trees and benches, Garzon Hotel has just 5 bedrooms with king beds and wood burning chimneys. The d├ęcor is stylish pampas with ebonized woods and bright-upholstered furnishings on raw wood floors and whitewash walls. Rooms feature small, translucent bathroom area equipped with modern white-basin sinks and comfy robes for exploring the surrounding property. The property feels far more bed and breakfast than hip boutique hotel, with guests intermingling for evening cocktail hour and late-night meals on the plain. Besides indulging in endless feasts by chef Francis Mallmann, who also owns Los Negros in Jose Ignacio, guests indulge in horse rides and bicycling amongst the hilly countryside.
