Estancia holidays deliver a slice of Argentinian country life – riding on horseback across the Pampas, indulging in mountainous asados and listening to folk songs with the gauchos.
Estancias are still working farms, so your hosts will look after you, but still need to ensure that the farm work is done. Guests are normally welcome and even encouraged to join in and your welcome will be the warmer the more you get involved, provided you are competent to do so!
Estancias come in many different shapes and sizes. Your choice of estancia will determine the experience that you enjoy. Some estancias are more traditional hacienda style, whilst others are effectively luxury hotels with fine dining and elaborate facilities. So, from our recommendations on the pages that follow, do choose the style that suits you.
Relaxing days of horse riding, sampling home made gastronomic delicacies and watching how the gauchos tend their herds are unique experiences. An estancia stay is a true taste of the ‘real’ Argentina.
