Overview

About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-6)

Fully refurbished in 2007 Casa Las Lenas is a very well appointed, 2 bed - 2 bath, condo in the Las Lenas resort, just fifty meters from the ski lifts and Pyramid Center.

Full home comforts in a compact ski home set in the Andes Mountains, Mendoza province, Argentina, just one hour drive from Malargue (nearest airport).

Casa Las Lenas is in the Corinto Apartment building set at 2,240 meters (7,350 feet) above sea level in the main base village area at Las Lenas.

No other alpine ski area in Argentina offers what Las Lenas can - extraordinary on slope opportunities, among the highest vertical drops for groomed skiing and lift serviced off piste in the South America (as well as world renowned hike-to and CAT accessible terrain), world-class recreation, night life and superb amenities and services.

Located on a sunny northern facing elevated ridge, with panoramic views up in to the head of the valley and the surrounding mountains, Casa Las Lenas is just steps from the base area and the Eros, Minerva and Venus ski lifts that access the two main mountain areas (Minerva / Vulcano for groomed piste skiing – and Marte for extreme off piste skiing).

Casa Las Lenas while having a floor area of approximately 800 square feet, is in fact one of the largests apartment types available in Las Lenas (other owners list these at 7 pax apartments, but to avoid crowding we removed one bed) . Originally designed by and in the style of many French ski resorts, the cleverly planned two level apartment has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, and can sleep 5 adults in beds and optionally a 6th on the sofa. The unit was completely renovated and newly furnished in 2007.

The principal accommodation includes

• King bed in the Master bedroom.

• A twin bunk and a twin single bed in the 2nd bedroom.

• A comfy sleeper sofa in the living room (for that extra guest)

• 2 TV's (Living Room and master bedroom) with DVD player

• Compact, but well equipped custom built kitchen / dining area

• Fifth floor position with spectacular views in the mountain

• Custom designed and built hardwood furniture

Professionally managed by Gimenez Uriburu Property (offices in BA and Las Lenas)

Services in the Apartment building include

• Daily maid service (included in your rental) that comes each day to tidy the apartment, make beds, and even do dishes!

• Sauna (free of charge)

• Laundry ( for a very reasonable charge)

• Massage

• Wi-Fi ( free service in the lobby – or in the unit by a paid service - you must buy a coupon in the building opposite)

• Large secure Locker for storage of skis and boots at the ground floor ski entrance.

A short stroll away you will find (in order of proximity)

• The five star Pices Hotel and Casino

• The Pyramid Building (the village center with shops, pharmacy, banks, bars and restaurants)

• A Supermarket and Wine store.

• 7 other hotels, more than 15 restaurants and bars

Las Lenas is a purpose built destination resort. You will not need a car during your stay ( indeed if you do bring one – since the village is kept largely pedestrian/ car free –after dropping your bags, you will be required to keep it in one of the car parks at the entrance to the village – 5 minutes’ walk away from the apartment and the center.)

About William Casa Farellones

My wife (Thai) and I (British) are semi retired and now divide our time between homes in Phuket, Thailand (our previous home/business base) and now, chasing the snow, in Big Sky Montana,Farellones, Chile and Las Lenas Argentina

William Casa Farellones purchased this apartment in 2003

Why William Casa Farellones chose Argentina

Quite simply Las Lenas has the best skiing in Argentina . We visited in 2002 and had soo much snow that we could only ski 2 days in a week stay. Knowing we wanted to return and finding that prices were affordable, we decided to purchase this unit on that first trip. We have been coming back every year ever since.

What makes this apartment unique

We come here (from our home in Chile) for a change of scene once an year mainly for the phenomenal skiing off the Marte lift. Las Lenas is also the biggest party / night life town of all the south American ski resorts.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi William,



It actually went really well, we have a big dump towards the end so managed to get a few mornings of powder. As we drove back to Mendoza the road closed behind us, we were literally the last car to get through!!! Loved the apartment. We are also on the look out for a ski place to buy in the states so if you come across any good deals would appreciate it. Robs got a conference in Beaver Creek next week so will start looking around.



Thanks again, Itta

This condo is perfect for 2-5 people and can accommodate up to 7 with everyone having a bed or a couch. Very comfortable with a great view of the mountains. It's a close walk to everything you need. If i come back to Las Lanas I would stay here for sure!

Let Casa Las Lenas make your trip!

  • 4 of 5

I just got back from a week at Casa Las Lenas and had such a great experience! Where as most people were stuck staying in a hotel for the week, being locked into dining in their dining rooms, and paying a whole lot more money, we had the freedom to do as we pleased in our own apartment! The place was great and William was super responsive to all of our inquiries. I strongly recommend this place.

Owner's Response: Thanks John, I am so glad to hear that the trip was a success and also for your your kind words to explain the benefits of staying in an apartment over an all in hotel package.
