We had a great time at la calandria. It is the perfect place to relax. Patricia and Dany were great hosts picking us up from downtown or driving us there as we did not have a car. The breakfast was just amazing - delicious selfmade bread. Thank you again for everything!

We are Patricia & Daniel. We were born at the Province of Mendoza next to the imposing landscape of the Cordillera de los Andes. We had two children and soon we moved to the Capital City of Buenos Aires were we both developed our professional careers and raised our children.
About 30 years later, in 2009, we moved to the city of Puerto Madryn looking for reconnecting with nature at the immensity of the New Golf.
Patricia is a Doctor (Psychiatrist) and I, already retired after a long ride in the multinational corporations's business management, we built our own ranch "Chacra La Calandria" in the area of "El Doradillo", sanctuary of the Frank Whale, where we develop the world's southernmost lavender plantation!
We love nature, music, gathering with friends... and good gastronomy !
