To the southwest of the  Calamuchita Valley , is Villa Yacanto. 130 km from Córdoba Capital and 1300 meters above sea level. It is a highly attractive corner that invites us to know its diversity. Crystalline rivers, hills, birds of all kinds and native forests are part of this  natural beauty .

Among streams and waterfalls are the busiest resorts of Villa Yacanto. With all the amenities available around, and wonderful landscapes make up a  unique panoramic view . Villa Yacanto is located at the foot of Cordoba's most famous hill. So from this place you can  access the Cerro Champaquí  by  its only vehicle access  .

I'm sure some option you'll find. This destination has houses, inns, cottages or apartments.   Many offers  to spend a dream night. The  gastronomy  is varied, and above all, it tries to preserve the  Cordovan tradition  . That is why there are many grills, tea houses and artisanal ice cream parlours.
