Cerro Bayo ski resort only 15 minutes from Villa la Angostura
Villa la Angostura (or La Angostura for short) is an upmarket resort town in the Neuquén Province of Patagonia, Argentina. Even though it’s called a “village”, it has a population of approximately 11,000 inhabitants and is more aptly described as a town, although in comparison to Bariloche, Angostura definitely feels village-like.
In a similar vein to Bariloche and other Patagonia towns, Villa la Angostura has beautiful alpine wooden buildings and the requisite chocolate shops. The major difference is that Villa la Angostura is much smaller and quieter than “Braziloche”, and has a more laidback approach. The surrounding landscape compliments the quiet harmonious nature of Villa la Angostura.
“Angostura” in Spanish means “narrowness” which refers to the width of the Quetrihué Peninsula where the town is nestled.
