La Tierra de Leyendas

Tierra de Vientos 2448, Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego, 9410, Argentina

"The Land of Legends" is a honeymooners' delight; it sweeps up awards often, meaning the secret's out, but this adorable B&B run by Sebastian and Maria still bears their personal touch down to the family photos on the walls. The hotel is in the Estancia Río Pipo, on a wind-battered hill 4 km (2½ miles) west of town, in an area once inhabited by canoeist nomads, but it's now being encroached on by the expanding city. The seven bedrooms—with names such as La Coqueta and La Mision—boast large windows facing the Beagle Channel or the snow-capped Andes, with soft, luxurious beds and charming photos of old shipwrecks; a cozy living room offers a book exchange, board games, video library, and glass display tables with antique arrows, bones, and currency. The restaurant has a top-notch gourmet menu—offering such exotic fare as conejo a la cazadora (stuffed rabbit) or seafood au gratin—prepared by the owner.
