El Doradillo, the endless scenic beauty and the privilege of being able to watch the Southern Right whale from the coast have turned El Doradillo into a unique place, very popular with residents and both local and foreign tourists.
A place for your own!
Allows yourself a moment of peace in the quiet contemplation of the Patagonian nature, the perfect antidote to the constant noise of busy and work-driven urban lives.
La Calandria, offers its visitors, lots of peace and privacy so you enjoy your best moments in El Doradillo, a quiet and isolated place practically unaltered by human intervention, which allows visitors to enjoy a wild environment and invites landscape contemplation.
El Doradillo is 15 km away from Puerto Madryn and covers a 3 km wide, 25 km long area running parallel to the coastline. The endless scenic beauty and the privilege of being able to watch the Southern Right whale from the coast have turned El Doradillo into a unique place, very popular with residents and both local and foreign tourists.
The characteristics of this area permit to perform, in addition to the typical recreational activities (sun, beaches, trekking, mountain bike), other activities such as photography or bird watching.
If you are seeking to escape from the urban life for a while, our stone cottages are a very attractive option. We have filled the cabins with the few things you need. Here you can have a relaxing tea or a warm soup at night, sleep, read or just does nothing at all.
These little stone cabins have been equipped for 2 guests: private bathroom with shower and tub, 2 sommier beds, wood burning stove and a convenient kitchenette for a quick snack or tea or coffee.
A full breakfast is included in the fare: fresh fruit and juice, freshly ground coffee, farm fresh eggs, yogurts, cereals and our own homemade bread, puddings and marmalades. You may enjoy walking by the path through the plantation of lavenders and olive-trees up to the screened porch situated in the main house garden where the breakfast is served. If you're traveling and want to know Patagonian people, stay with us, we will love to be your private guide to discover our land, our culture and feel at home. Everything is ready for whale watching to begin. We invite you to take part in this matchless experience, in which passion always gains the upper hand. Let us know if you are interested and can give you more details.
WiFi is available in public areas and is free of charge.
We (the owners) live on site and we love to do our best to make sure that your stay will meet all your expectations.
If you're looking for something a little different than the usual "oceanfront" Puerto Madryn, this is it!!! A Lavender farm just a short drive (approx 15 mins) from the bus terminal! Amazing, relaxing, my kids (twins, age 9) loved the path leading to the cabins, and enjoyed playing with the friendly dogs and cat on site. My mother's friend (73 years old!) was also comfortable, and enjoyed a tarot card reading from Patricia while we were there.
Since we did not have a car, Dany was excellent in arranging a local driver for us for trips to Punta Tombo (penguins!!!) and other nearby nature treasures, as well as transfers to and from the bus station. Dany and Patricia really know the area, and are passionate about sharing the experience with their guests. We got to see things I never would have imagines. Very cool!
The smell of lavender when you arrive at the property is amazing! If you come at the right time of year, you can participate in their lavender harvest; we ended up buying several bottles of essential lavender oil and seed satchels.
One point I would make is that if you are not driving, you may want to bring a few groceries with you -- for a fee, Dany and Patricia provide DELICIOUS lunches and dinners, but having a few things on hand enables you to be a little more independent when it comes to food. (There is a kettle and tea, and also some plates and utensils, in the cabin.)
We loved hanging out in the breakfast area to surf the internet and just enjoy the serenity of the place. And the comforters in the cabins were super cozy -- between that and the fresh Patagonian air, we slept VERY well.
Excellent séjour, hôtes très accueillants, chambres très confortables, petit déjeuner royal (avec jus d'orange pressé, assez rare en Argentine), dîner de grande qualité en option! Un endroit plein de charme.
Excellent stay here, very nice place, real attentive hosts, beautiful and confortable bedrooms, perfect breakfast (with fresh orange juice), fantastic optional dinner. A place full of charm!
Patricia y Daniel fueron unos magníficos y muy hospitalarios anfitriones, siempre preocupados y atentos en todo momento de que nuestra estadía fuera muy agradable, y lo lograron! Además la paz y tranquilidad del lugar es única...las cabañas son muy acogedoras con lo necesario para el descanso donde uno se siente en casa y con un desayuno sano y riquísimo! Y si tienen ganas de cenar en La Calandria, tengan en cuenta que Daniel es también un extraordinario Chef! Sin duda fue una excelente elección quedarnos con Daniel y Patricia!
Muchas gracias querido Thomas por tus palabras! No es difícil ser buenos anfitriones de huéspedes con la calidad y calidez humana que ustedes irradian!!!
Fue en verdadero placer tenerlos en La Calandria y esperamos un nuevo encuentro muy pronto... en Santiago, en Barcelona, en Copenhagen, en Mendoza o en La Calandria nuevamente, quién sabe?!!!
Great place to stay - especially when you need a good rest and a good breakfast :)
The place is very well done - nice details. And the hospitality of Dany is...far more than one may expect.
The cabin itself is great to sleep and undertake trips to the pinguins and whales. Keep in mind you need a car to get here. Dany can help you to find an afforable one.
We had an amazing stay at this beautiful place!
It's very peaceful and quiet. Nice clean and cozy cabin with good beds and great shower.
Dany and Patricia are lovely hosts and help you where ever they can.
We felt really at home and it was hard to leave this place. They also serve the best homemade breakfast in Patagonia!
We would defenitely stay there again and highly recommand this place if you want to add a warm and personal touch to your trip.
Wij,Wim en Paula,hebben genoten tijdens het verblijf bij Danny en Patricia in de Cabins
Je zit in de middel of nowhere,je hoort alleen de vogeltjes fluiten
Danny en Patricia zijn bijzonder lieve en gastvrije mensen die je het compleet naar de zin willen maken
Ze verzorgen alles tot in de puntjes
Het ontbijt was super!alles is zelf gemaakt
Dus wil je even bijtanken tijdens de reis,even alles goed overdenken,dan zit je hier geweldig en sfeervol
Zorg wel dat je al wat boodschapjes mee hebt genomen uit het dorp want wat ik al zei: je hebt er verder niks!
Nog mooier is als je zelf een auto huurt want dan ben je niet afhankelijk en kan je in de avond in het dorp,als je goed bent in het onthouden van de weg,nog gaan eten.
Vriendelijk groet van tevreden gasten!
