Former pro polo player Federico “Fede” Cendoyo owns this beautiful and peaceful estancia, which has been in his family for generations.

When I booked my stay at El Venado, at the suggestion of a friend, I planned to stay for a week. My experience was so good that I returned the following week (after a short stay in Buenos Aires to watch the Argentine Open). The weather permitted polo almost every day and I settled into a magical rhythm of riding,...

This place is just out of this world. A huge Estancia with idyllic facilities and amazing people. Fede and all El Venado crew are such geniune and welcoming people who will make you feel home and ensure your polo gets to the next level. Can't recommend it enough, and already looking forward to getting back!

Our stay at El Venado was far beyond our expectations.

I have been to stay at El Venado many times over the last 10+ years but only just found out they are listed on trip advisor. This is a family run working estancia with horses (a great polo breeding operation), cattle and crops, dating back well over a century by Federico's ancestors. A former pro, he runs a really well...

This trip was a total immersion polo experience, far beyond my expectations. The staff and owners could not have been friendlier and more welcoming, and made our comfort and enjoyment their top priority. The horses were phenomenal and every effort was made to match horses to riders' ability and personality. I had high hopes for this trip and in the...
