Out in the Argentine countryside sits Residencia Messidor, a small French-style castle designed by famed architect Alejandro Bustillo in 1942. Nestled within walking distance from Lake Huapi, the castle is surrounded by verdant forest. Presidents and dignitaries have stayed at the residence, which was originally commissioned by Sara Madero Demaría and later sold to the province. Though it remains closed to the public, you can drive a car around a small circuit for excellent views and photo ops.

  • It's just a walk around or drive through. Go ONLY past Brava or Mansa beach or the arrayanes reserve, otherwise, don't even bother. You can't get in, ever. But she is pretty
  • An outstanding place, with its beautiful European castle-style residence, steeped in history. It is an obligatory walk in Villa La Angostura and very short. It can only be done by car, at 20 km per hour, without stopping and without getting out of the car. NOTE: YOU CANNOT DO IT ON FOOT
