Most visitors to Argentina dream about spending at least a few days in the country side during their stay and with historical farms or estancias across the country, the possibilities can seem endless. Let us help you out with this short guide to the most beautiful estancias in Buenos Aires and in Argentina.
Only half an hour from downtown Buenos Aires and close to Ezeiza airport, this is one of the most luxurious choices. Built in English style by a wealthy landowner on almost 200 acres, it consists of 11 suites and houses a billiard and cigar room as well as a library. Polo lessons are on the menu as well.
(Ezeiza – Buenos Aires Province)
Candelaria del Monte
A favorite of both Travel + Leisure and National Geographic Traveler magazine, this estancia dates from the 1800’s and was completely rebuilt in the original style in 2004. Most food they serve is produced on the estate itself.
(San Miguel del Monte – Buenos Aires Province)
The most beautiful estancia in Cordoba Province, built in 1830. Lovely main house in a park designed by Charles Thays, the man responsible for both the Botanical Gardens and huge 3 de Febrero park in Buenos Aires.
(Ascochinga – Cordoba Province)
An bit of an anomaly, this estancia/tiny village on the southern Atlantic, as it used to be a farm for seaweed harvesting, not raising cattle. In the midst of an amazing part of nature with the old worker homes converted to cabins and a central kitchen with an award winning chef, this place truly makes for one of the most beautiful estancias to visit in Argentina, if not the world.
(Bahia Bustamante – Chubut Province)
In Argentina’s Lake District at the foot of the Andes, this is a real farm with a herd of almost a 1000. The chance for horse riding aficionados to participate in some real gaucho cowboy work. You sleep in simple but comfortable wooden cabins. British female owner.
(Junin de los Andes – Neuquén Province)
