CASA QUILQUIHUE

A stunning riverside residence, exclusively available to Fish Patagonia guests for private group hire.

The jewel in our crown.

Fish Patagonia has exclusive access to this incredible modern house, with private river frontage on the beautiful Quilquihue River from its own back garden. Boasting an enviable location just 30 minutes from the centre of San Martín de los Andes and 5 minutes from Chapelco Airport, we can reach practically all of the water we fish in the area from Casa Quilquihue.

Totally unique among all the lodges in the area, Casa Quilquihue is open to private groups only. In short, it’s your very own, fully catered private lodge, right in the heart of the best fishing in Northern Patagonia.

The angler’s dream.

Casa Quilquihue is the place for you if you’re looking for 7 nights and 6 days of varied, world class fishing heaven with a private group of friends or family.

We design our programs here for serious fishermen: your private chef sends you off in the morning with a hearty breakfast and a luxury picnic and you head off with your guide to fish the day away. Return home in the evening for a pre-dinner picada (snack) and refreshing drink watching the sunset over the river to catch up on everyone’s tales from the day while your chef whips up dinner.

If you’re happy to have company, your hosts Peter and Holly love to join guests for a few evenings of their trip to get to know everyone personally and hear all about the day’s action on the water.

Never fish the same stretch twice.

While completely secluded with private gardens and river access, Casa Quilquihue’s location just a few minutes’ drive from the main road means we can reach more water from here than from any other lodge we fish from.

This is the ideal place to stay if you’re looking to fish the biggest variety of water as possible: no two days need be the same. You tell us what you’re looking for, or we can provide you with some of our tried and tested favourite combinations, tailored to the season.

Take your pick from any of the lakes we fish and all but two of the rivers, which are accessible only from the private estancias they run through.

Something for everyone.

While the huge range of fishing on offer from Casa Quilquihue is one of its most appealing features, that’s certainly not to say you’ll be bored if you do decide to take some time away from the water.

The house is perfectly appointed to enjoy some of the other activities the area has to offer. Town is just a 30 minute drive away, and is lovely to visit for an afternoon’s shopping or an evening meal if you fancy checking out the local nightlife. We can also arrange hikes, mountain biking, lake kayaking or horseback riding off the property with local guides, all with prior notice.

The house is also located a stone’s throw from the Jack Nicklaus and Jack Nicklaus II golf course, Chapelco, open to guests keen to hit a few holes. Chapelco resort comprises a spa as well as the golf course, open to those looking for a relaxing afternoon away from the river.

That being said, just taking some time to enjoy the house and gardens while watching the world go by is certainly not a bad option either.

The height of modern luxury.

Perfect for those groups looking for a more private, intimate experience than communal fishing lodges, Casa Quilquihue comprises three en-suite bedrooms, which can sleep up to 8 people. The house also benefits from a spacious open plan kitchen, dining and living area, as well as a separate games and TV room and bar across the courtyard.

And that’s just indoors: al fresco spaces include multiple fire pits and dining areas, a wood fired hot tub, a dedicated asado (Argentine BBQ) area and various deckings and seating areas from which to enjoy the evening sun with an aperitif. 

Eat like a king.

No trip to Argentina would be complete without some of the famous cuisine the country is so famous for. During your stay at Casa Quilquihue, you are catered for by a private chef showcasing some of the best food Argentina has to offer. Breakfasts are freshly made to order before heading out to fish for the day, three course picnics are par for the course for a day’s fishing and evening meals are a sumptuous affair, preceded by the traditional Argentina picada to go along with your pre-dinner tipple. 

Lest we forget, no Argentinian picnic or dinner would be complete without some of those world famous Malbecs. The house’s open bar is always fully stocked for guests to enjoy at their leisure, and our guides are reliably equipped with a full cooler for the day’s fishing. 

Traditionally, meat, and a lot of it, is part of the Argentine diet. If this doesn’t sit well with you and your dietary requirements, that’s no problem: just let us know when booking and we’ll create a menu that suits you.
