“Worth the splurge”
Reviewed 21 January 2007

We arrived at the estancia in a state of exhaustion and hunger after an all-night bus ride from Salta. After showering, we were greeted by a delicious spread of lunch on the big plantation-style porch that goes all the way around the main house. It was like a southern plantation, with a constant flow of ice tea on the porch or under shade trees. But it was also like a ranch because they have lots of cattle in addition to the thousands of hectares of pine forests. Very authentic gauchos took us on horseback rides that covered only a fraction of the total expanse of the estancia. The hostess also walked around with us and explained what the various trees were and how they are used. (We spoke Spanish). The rest of the day was spent swimming in the pool. This was one of our biggest splurges of our Argentina trip, but well worth it, considering that it was real exposure to the gaucho/estancia way of life.

  • Liked — Insight to a real working estancia and old world charm; real gauchos
  • Stayed December 2006, travelled as a couple

This lovely working Argentinian Ranch is within easy reach of Argentina's Jesuit Missions. The rooms are decorated with family furniture, with ajoining bathrooms. Meals and drinks are included and take place with the gracious owner operator, Silivia, in the stately dining room. Activities on the property are walking on the grounds, horsebackriding, swimming, or lounging on the wonderful veranda sipping wine and watching the sunset. If you like a shiny, sparkly tourist hotel with pristine and impersonal decoration this isn't for you, but if you like a unique and lovely experience with cultural immersion this is your place.
Culture shock 2/5 not north america, but all the comforts
Language shock 3/5 hostess speaks workable English
Food shock 3/5 Food is local, but very edible
