Los Poblanos in New Mexico may be just a few minutes from downtown Albuquerque, but it feels like a different world. Maybe it’s the rural chic feel, the fields of purple lavender or the random Guinea fowl and alpacas roaming the property. Whatever it is, Los Poblanos Inn and Organic Farm was the perfect spot to cap off our trip to New Mexico.
I still have sexy dreams about the pillows and lux bedding. And the house-made lavender toiletries were enough to tempt even Maloney into the shower.
Recently renovated, Los Poblanos opened the airy, field-to-table Campo restaurant this year under the direction of Chef Jonathan Perno.
Opt for the full breakfast — from the most gorgeous avocado toast we’ve ever seen to cazuela bowls prepared on a live-fire grill — at the inn restaurant just steps from your room. (You know we took advantage of that!) Be sure to make a rezzie if you want to eat dinner, though.
We were also lucky enough to score a tour of Los Poblanos’ farm with head horticulturalist Wes Brittenham. The fully organic fields around Los Poblanos grow the peppers, tomatoes, greens and herbs to supply the Campos kitchen. Add fruit trees, grape vines and sunflowers taller than we are, and your Instagram pics basically take themselves.
The best part?
In July (when we visited), the full bloom lavender perfumes the grounds — and makes a killer backdrop. Guests can help cut the slender stalks, though I lasted for one bush before my back started aching.
Here’s our TL:DR take on Los Poblanos in New Mexico:
Why we love it: Every inch of Los Poblanos – from lavender fields to tree-lined drive – is Insta-ready. Add comfy beds and field-to-table dining on site, and we’re sold!
Vibe: Half south of France (minus the attitude), half farmers’ market, Los Poblanos gives off a relaxed and rural vibe.
Great for: Health seekers, romantic weekenders and girls on getaway who want to truly unwind.
In room: Lux robes and house-made lavender toiletries.
Must try: Los Poblanos’ on-site restaurant Campo serves a killer, live fire-cooked avocado toast. (But everything is delish!)
Bonus: Don’t forget to say “hi” to the alpacas, Guinea fowl and farm cat!
