Lago Lolog, Neuquén d esigned lodge for
fishermen and lovers of tranquillity, Guspar Schroh's cabins now number
17. They are situated at the head of the Rio Quilquihué, which flows
into Lake Lolog, a wild stretch of water that can become quite fierce
when there is a wind. On the other hand, when there is no wind the
lake is a glory to enjoy, almost in private, on one of Gaspar's launches.
Walks, pony-treks or endless after dinner conversation in the restaurant
with guests and neighbours, are all to be enjoyed. At the other end
of the Lake lives Karl Moritz, a meticulous artist exclusively dedicated
to painting bird species.

Villa La Angostura, Neuquén. The greatest advantage of this inn is that it was built at the foot of the Nahuel Huapi, taking the glorious view into account. The main salon, dining room and several guestrooms all give on to a terrace, which includes an excellent swimming pool and the wonderful lake behind. The pleasure of being able to sit in the easy chairs with a good book overlooking the peaceful scenery is priceless.
Villa La Angostura, Neuquén. Perfect cabins to be near and yet afar; a reasonable distance from the busy centre of Villa Angostura, but at the foot of the Nahuel Huapi.
