Estancia San Francisco

Carretera Via La Culata, 10 km (7 mi) northwest of Mérida, Mérida, Mérida, Venezuela

The imposing white wall outside this vast property and the lovely hillside drive up toward the reception area are your first two clues that this hotel is out of the ordinary. It sits on a whopping 500,000 square meters of lush, walkable Andean land. At this country inn you can catch trout in a private lagoon and have the chef cook it up for dinner with freshly baked arepas (made with whole-wheat flour in the Andes). Little extras like the down pillows and comforters, cushy bathrobes, and cozy fireplaces make this deluxe mountain retreat worth every bolívar fuerte. All the two-level suites feature spectacular views of the valley; the more luxurious three-bedroom chalets have their own kitchens.

PROS

  • Quiet, secluded, gorgeous

CONS

  • Far from town, some chalets have odd layouts
