El Venado Polo School
Reviewed 15 December 2013

My family and I had the most amazing time at El Venado. The horses were calm, reliable, very well trained and my kids' confidence in riding were vastly improved. At the end of the first week we were playing chukkers with Federico and his wonderful friends and staff at the estancia. Federico and Ines were the perfect hosts. We had some special requirements for our food and Ines even made sure that this was catered for. Most highly recommended.

This place is great. Good accommodation, good food and great horses. The Estancia is run by Federico and his wife, who are great hosts and always make you feel welcome. An ideal place to get a taste of "real" Argentina

I have been to El Venado more times than I can remember and it is always like coming home! Fede and Ines make you feel like you are part of a big family. And guests come back year after year, so you are sure to run into familiar faces and old friends. The polo is just a natural extension of the family feeling, with stick and ball after breakfast, lunch, siesta by the pool, and late afternoon chukkers. It is a rhythm that is easy to get used to! You can't go wrong with El Venado - just read the reviews of those who have fallen in love with the place, the people and the polo!

Room Tip: I like the rooms in the old barn best. But the main house is nice too.

I spent an amazing week at El Venado. Everything was perfect from Fede and Ines's warm and friendly welcome, to the horses and polo lessons right down to the incredile food and very comfortable accomodation. This is the perfect mix of rest and relaxation coupled with the excitement of polo. I would highly recommend this to anyone considering it.

What an amazing trip! Federico and Ines are the warmest, most welcoming hosts to all their guests, and the accommodations are lovely. I couldn't have asked for a better first time "polo" experience including top notch polo instruction and wonderful horses. El Venado is such a special place, and I can't wait to go back next year.

I have been to El Venado five times nowadays the year is simply not the same without it! It is just Wonderful. It is not only beautiful, relaxing, and super comfortable but the polo lessons and chukkers are abundant and great fun. It is the most amazing way to relax and switch off. Added to that is the food....you will eat more than enough delicious food to compensate for the calories you burn! Fede and Ines are a wonderful couple and they make the atmosphere warm and fun. It is simply heaven.

El Venado is the ultimate vacation spot. I've been there twice, and in the time between all I could dream of is my return. Federico and Ines are the most hospitable hosts. Staying at the estancia is definitely a homey experience. The staff is unmatched in attentiveness, and whatever you request will be accommodated. A central aspect of El Venado is the integration into Argentine culture, complete with food, wine, and mid-day siestas. As a beginner polo player, I felt the instruction I received was appropriate for my level, and was playing in slow chukkers by the end of my stay. I've never experienced a vacation in which I've achieved such relaxation and peace of mind, really being able to leave any worries at home. There are no words that could describe it adequately- the only way to understand is to experience it for yourself.
