South America is one of the places to watch in 2013. Opening in spring is the Grace Cafayate hotel, spa and residential villas in Calchaquí Valley. The hotel is in the northwest of Argentina which as wine lovers will know is in the heart of the Argentinean wine country. The 1,250 acre estate isperfect for those who love the sporting life too as the estate is surrounded by stunning scenery and the best equestrian sports South America has to offer. Not to mention having access to La Estancia de Cafayate, the largest 18 hole golf course in Argentina. The fine dining restaurant will offer Argentinean cuisine the European Hotel Design Award in its debut year.There is a good pedigree; from the same hotel group Grace Santorini was included in Tatler's 2011 list of the 101 Best Hotels in the World and Condé Nast Traveller's 2012 Gold list.
Anything Argentinean - did someone say 'polo player'?
