Quinta Anabtawi Villa
img img img img img img img img img img img img img img img img img img img img img img img img img

The villa (with its own bathroom and toilet) sleeps 7 

Private pool with its own barbecue and restroom. Artificial lake . A huge palm tree on a small hill. A separate extensive barbecue section. Land has a security gate and is fenced on all sides, for security purposes, with a 24/7 electronic security system in place. A football/soccer field and a ping pong table available. WiFi internet.

It is important to point out that the whole property is rented to just one group at a time. (minimum 4-7, if for just one couple, please ask for rates) This assures full enjoyment of all the wonderful the facilities in total privacy. The Fauna at the quinta Anabtawi is very varied and very enjoyable!

Quinta Anabtawi is not a B&B, it's your private resort. Other than our Beagle Homer, your friendly canine attendant, and Thelma and Louise, who will provide your morning freshly laid organic eggs, there is no staff to attend to you. Yours truly, Riyad (Owner/Manager), does not live on the premises either, although I'm only 10 minutes and a phone call away . I will receive you with an open heart and make sure that your first day goes without a hitch. Then I leave you to enjoy the Quinta in complete privacy. I can very easily be contacted by e-mail or by cell phone. There is no gardener either while you are there. Gardening is performed while you are away visiting the many close by wineries and sightseeing. I strive very hard to ensure your stay is as comfortable and private as possible.

During your stay, I highly recommend booking a Riyad Argentinian BBQ Extravaganza : The best Argentine meat grilled the right way the Argentine way, hosted by yours truly. I propose this because you will never get the same experience in a restaurant. Most restaurants pre-cook the meat, and only heat it up for serving. With a Riyad Extravaganza BBQ, you will experience a typical home made Argentinian BBQ. After all, if you've been in Argentina and haven't had a typical Argentinian BBQ, you haven't been in Argentina. (Please book in advance and specify the number of persons and the day and time, and include the payment when you pay the rent. Ask for pricing. )

    When we first arrived at the Quinta we poured over the suggestions of previous visitors with full intentions of following through on everyone’s informed recommendations.6 days later- we are now leaving…. Without ever dining at one of Mendoza’s fine restaurants – without ever tasting a pastry from Jebb’s … which we are sure are both incredible experiences.We are leaving instead with our own amazing memories as we’ve discovered the best way to enjoy Mendoza is to make it your own. And with much gratitude to Riyad – we accomplished just that!!Quinta Anabtawi became more than just “our home away from home” – it is now our very own private oasis to which we will return to, often – if only in our memory.Riyad and Raoul – from the bottom of our hearts – Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! We’ve learned another lesson at the Quinta – the only thing “lost in translation” are bad jokes (Ha!). Friendship transcends any language barrier!P.S. Who is Homero???With love and thanks

    There is no place like the Quinta…but now we must head home. It’s been an amazing month – that went by way too quickly! The Quinta has been the highlight of our trip – a true gem. The house and grounds are top notch. We couldn’t have picked a better place to stay while discovering the beautiful wine region of Mendoza.Riyad is by far the most helpful host we have ever encountered in our travels. We pestered him for 6 months before we got here – and again for the month we were here. Let’s just say we’ve been “high maintenance” visitors. Yet, Riyad delivered on everything AND MORE! Riyad’s asado night is such a treat. Raul is definitely a master when it comes to preparing the feast (he’s great company, too). Our attempts at asado didn’t produce quite the same results – “blackened” describes it best! But we did manage to conquer the pizza oven and produced some lovely creations – in literally minutes! Smokey and delicious.And yes, Homero, the ear-flapping dog, is a loveable as everyone says. He’ll steal your heart with his big brown eyes waiting for you at the door every morning as you open the curtains. He’s been great company and earns his keep as one of the best PR guys we’ve ever met! How many pictures did we take of him?!Some great wineries to visit in the area – although if you’re driving be prepared to go around in circles a few times before finding the places. The street signs and published maps can be “slightly” misleading.Riyad. Thank you so much for making our time in Argentina so memorable. We would highly recommend your Quinta to anyone. We truly appreciate all your time and effort making us comfortable here, answering our many questions, setting up reservations and helping us out when we got lost. It’s been a pleasure meeting you and we thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent with you (who knew the expats lunch would last 8 hours!)Gracias por todo amigo. We wish you well

    We will no doubt think often of our time here…Considering the current state of our economy, we seriously considered canceling this trip. What a mistake that would have been.The Quinta has provided us respite and refreshment – a time to decompress and reflect on our blessings. As much as we enjoyed our various excursions (dining out, wine tours, drive to Chile, rafting), the Quinta remains far and away our most treasured experience. It is clearly a labor of love for Riyad with its beautifully landscaped & well thought out grounds. He has created something very special here and it provided a retreat unlike anything else we have ever experienced.We will miss it terribly – the asado with delightful Raul, meeting Homero’s Bart, conversations with Riyad, the generosity of his spirit & heart, his love for his son, the pool, the majestic poplars swaying against the intense blue of the Mendoza sky. All of it has been such a blessing and we leave deeply grateful.Thank you Riyad

    Where do we begin? What a paradise you have in the Quinta! Every little detail is a delight, truly. It is not hard for one to see the special care and love that has gone in to creating this magnificent retreat.We hate to leave!We can’t hank you enough for your never ending hospitality and all your help during our stay.Some highlights, but too many to list all:-The asado-Wine tours: La Garde, Catena, Ruca Malen (lunch was fantastic!) and Alta Vista which we all felt was the most traditional.-Wine, wine and more wine. We enjoyed it a lot.-Chacras, La Piadina (Lasagna)-Mendoza, Azafran restaurant!-Empanadas from across the street.-The pool! So refreshing after our long days in the sun.-Homero!! How cute is he. Even the non dog lovers grew to like him.We have many memories, that we will all cherish for a very long time.

    Riyad T hank you for such a wonderful stay at Quinta Anabtawi! Although our stay was short (too short) we have enjoyed every minute of it! Your home is so beautiful, the pool, the guest houses, the landscape - it truly is a labor of love and you can see it in every detail of the house. We especially enjoyed our evening firing up pizzas with you by the fire pit, with great wine & conversation. The guys had a lot of fun playing ping pong with you & look forward to a rematch :)I really appreciate all you have done to make our stay care free & memorable. I know I asked a lot of questions via email & you helped me with all of them. This was truly what we needed to relax after flying end to end of Argentina in just a few days. On top of your gracious hospitality, we had Homero, who helped us not miss our own puppies so much. What a sweet, friendly lovable boy he is. I wish I could take him home with us. I hope we didn't spoil him too much!Thank you so much for welcoming us to your home, we hope to return again, and would love to welcome you to our home in Dallas if you ever travel to Texas!Thank you for everything

    When writing the date above, I had to think hard about exactly what day it is today. This place is exactly that kind of place – where you lose all track of time. It’s the perfect vacation destination. Sarah, Tony and I spent only four nights here, and it pains us to leave. I so enjoyed the Eden-like gardens and the fauna is fabulous too. I ate cherries and plums every morning, and visited Thelma and Louise hoping to find eggs (only one, alas). Homero always trotted behind, checking the perimeter. We spent one whole day visiting wineries with Marcelo, our knowledgeable driver. We trusted him to come up with an itinerary, and he did not steer us wrong. We toured four very different “bodegas”, though all were stunningly beautiful: Catena Zapata, Achaval-Ferrer, Melipal and Carinae. We had a five- course, five-star lunch at Melipal overlooking the pond. I highly recommend it! We spent another day in Mendoza city, doing a little shopping and a lot of waiting in line at the ATM. We lunched leisurely near Plaza Independencia, came back here to nap and swim, then a late dinner at Francis Mallman’s 1884. The restaurant is gorgeous and the asado almost as god as Raul’s. And Raul! Everybody wants to pack Homer into their suitcases, but I’d take you. You are a master at the parrilla. Riyad, I don’t have enough words or enough space to thank you for making this experience so easy and so pleasant. Gracias. We’ll be back!

    Riyad Again Thanks for our great stay at your villa! Your gracious "welcome" at midnight after a delayed flight; "emergency" supplies; wonderful recommendations and numerous emails regarding our stay were truly appreciated. Villa was wonderful! Huge outdoor area with our "fotball" (soccer) family tournament; the outdoor firepit by the studio was great at night with a glass of Malbec on a cool evening was delightful and fabulous asado with Raul and you was a highlight of our Mendoza visit. We need to return either as a group or individually in the near future. The guest book was filled with "our visit was too short..." whether your guests were staying 2 days a week or several weeks! It was a unique "escape" and a beautiful place to stay. Many Thanks for allowing us to share your home for a few days! Will highly recommend your Villa to any of our friends traveling to Mendoza! Riyad was wonderful setting up our wine tours; our spectacular lunch at Melipal (unbelievable!) and with all our inquiries. If visiting Mendoza would rate 5 Star the Villa, Riyad, Rual, Homero without reservation for groups of 2 to 8 in the villa and studio. Many Thanks to our gracious host!

    Riyad, We had an amazing time at your Quinta, and wish we could stay (much) longer. The Bbq with Raul was delicious, and got pretty wild! Maybe next time you’ll have better luck at foosball. Lunch at Melipal vineyards was an experience of a lifetime; Food & Wine were unbeatable. We tried putting Homero in our carry-on, but he was too busy enjoying the sun. Eggs for breakfast from the chickens, fresh plums and cherries. What a treat! We can’t thank you enough and hope our paths cross again, soon!! All our best, Mario & Diedre.

    Riyad, What can we say to describe this jewel of a resort and your hospitality. It started with the booking and the help you offered us and has ended with a fabulous asado! You are much too modest on your website about how magnificent the Quinta really is. A truly private resort with such unique amenities. We were here with our daughter and son-in-law so the guest house was perfect for the four of us. We so enjoyed trying at our own asados (twice) and even made pizzas in the mud oven one night. Thank you for making arrangements with Diego for our bike and winery tours, it was a fantastic day to enjoy the local scenery, wines and food. As my daughter said, one of the highlights of her life (only 27) was the lunch at Rucamalen you arranged for us. Truly spectacular. As for the Quinta, it was always an oasis whenever we returned from our day trips! The pool was always inviting and such a relaxing place to unwind from the day’s activities. This was a truly amazing family re-union for us and after the hustle and bustle of BA. We so loved this resort. Your own love for the place shows through the care and attention shown to the property. And of course there is loveable Homero, always there to greet us morning, noon and night. What a treat for a dog-loving family. We wish you all the best success for the future Your new found Canadian friends, George, Lynn, Shaina & Marshal Calgary & Toronto, Canada

    Dear Riyad, What a glorious 3 “full” days we have had in Mendoza thanks to you! Where do we begin… - We loved your Quinta – the grounds are awesome and the location is ideal for visiting the wine country of Mendoza. - Having you as a host is like having a personal concierge. - The tours you arranged were also awesome. - The Asado was one of the best meals we have had anywhere, anytime and sharing that time with you is a memory that we will cherish for ever. - As dog lovers we enjoyed having Homero around and helped us not miss our animals at home. - Your restaurant recommendations were spot on and we enjoyed them immensely. - This has been high light of our trip and we are already looking forward to returning and spending more time here. Thank you, Thankyou, Thankyou Bob, Norma & Nick Evans Lafayette, California, USA
