Posada CampoTinto is a charming Tuscany-infused countryside villa nestled in the heart of Uruguay’s San Roque wine country. Within this Carmelo vineyard lodge and tented camp, local flavors and modern boutique hotel comforts combine to produce an unexpected and unforgettable escape amid the off-the-beaten-track undulating Uruguayan landscape.
There is a distinct feeling of being at home at Posada CampoTinto. This indelible comfort is in large part due to the warm and welcoming staff who treat each guest like family. It is also rooted in the countryside character found within each of the inn’s five guest rooms, where whitewashed bucolic elegance comes to life alongside modern amenities of air conditioning, full en-suite bathrooms, and private terraces. The main villa has been completely restored to house four of these beautiful rooms, each with ample living space and views into the vineyards and fruit plantations surrounding the San Roque chapel. The most exclusive accommodation at Posada CampoTinto, however, is the deluxe tented suite, the only one of its kind in the country. Situated in a remote corner of the property, this luxury tent—flown in straight from South Africa—boasts all of the comforts of a five-star African safari tented camp and all of the amenities of the main house’s suites. Guests who have the pleasure of staying here enjoy an unhindered connection to the surrounding Uruguayan nature, with a colonial four-poster bed, handcrafted chess set centerpiece, and private evening bonfires rounding out the experience.
Dining is enjoyed al fresco at Restaurante CampoTinto, the property’s garden view restaurant serving simple, classic, and homemade Italian cuisine paired with local Carmelo wines. Every ingredient is plucked straight from CampoTinto’s garden to create the fruit preserves and colorful salads that accompany the freshly baked scones and café con leche in the mornings and quality cuts of meat in the evening. From the cheeses and olive oils to the signature tannat wines, every flavor has been affectionately cultivated to reflect the best nuances and aromas of Carmelo and its countryside.
With its vintage vineyard setting, it is no wonder why Posada CampoTinto was named one of the world’s top hotels for wine lovers. Every diversion centers around the wine history and peaceful pace of life found here, from bike riding through the Carmelo countryside and neighboring wineries to simply reading beside the swimming pool after a walk around the property gardens. Guests are invited to take part in the everyday delights of picking, separating and pressing the fruits of the vines, and are encouraged to enjoy a gourmet picnic of wine, cheese, and homemade bread amid the vines to complete their taste of Uruguayan Tuscany.Request Information
