According to Infobae.com, the couple, the three princesses and Máxima's parents will stay a week to ten days at Villa La Angostura. They are staying at Cumelén Country Club:

Apparently, the Prince was spotted running along the interior paths of the country club, and the couple wandered inside of it in a very relaxed way.

The article also says that W-A bought two terrains on the lake coast in a country club named "Muelle De Piedra" (in Villa La Angostura as well).

What a beautiful place! The home that they are staying in is very charming. I liked seeing the photo of Maxima and Amalia on skis. It looks like they are having a wonderful holiday.

It says that Máxima is trying the most difficult slopes and that they usually have a break at Martin Zorreguieta's restaurant / shelter, named 180.

Meanwhile, Ariane stays with the grandparents

It is interesting, that they are so far from Europe, in a small village and we know where they are. They can't be private. I don't understand how can make other royals their holiday so private. (For example Mette-Marit and Haakon or Mathilde of Belgium or others)

I don't know for sure, Fortimo, but my guess is that it depends on the local press, and the royal family themselves. Sometimes, royals will agree to be photographed in exchange for privacy during the rest of the vacation. I don't know the case with Willem-Alexander and Maxima, but I think that it may be one of the things that I just mentioned.

They are skiing in a small village, in a big country, where everybody knows who Máxima is.

According to the media, only with the Dutch Marechausse and nanny/ies. They are getting extra back-up from the local police.

yeah, and she has time, she passes with her family in Argentina. When she declines her argentinian nationality? Because she can do it. Law says it.

i think it's not an option in argentinian law to decline your nationality.
