Around 90 minutes from the first village, this estancia is a real opportunity to meet real people as well as their way of living. Don't expect a typical touristic things with hot water, WiFi and a king size bed or an hotel with all the comfort, this is simple, people are straight to the point - but if you're interested...

We stayed at estancia puesto viejo in the cordoba mountains for 3 nights. This was one of the best things we did in argentina and it is a great way to explore the genuine gaucho culture on the cheap. We took a bus from cordoba to la falda, you can also go direct from buenos aires, from there Virginia comes... More

We had a very unfortunate experience that I would like to share to all travelers intending to come and visit this estancia. First of all the estancia is located in a beautiful part of Argentina. There is a long 90 minute drive from La Cumbre along a windy, bumpy road. The estancia is literally found in the middle of nowhere,... More

Vir B, Propietario at Estancia Puesto Viejo, responded to this review

Hi I'm Virginia, owns and'm the one referred to in this opinion. I guess it was written before he could offer to pay for the things they missed. I did this when I realized that I could never be certain who had stolen these things they missed, just somehow meet my clients. Since there was no way to prove anything... More

the estancia is literally in the middle of nowhere;perfect if you seek some quiet days in nature.. it helps a lot to know some spanish, as you have to ask everything yourself and you're not given any information after arriving..but also the fellow travellers who stay there are glad to help. prices seemed alright and the food was good!

Puesto Viejo is a very quiet place, completely lost (1,5 hour drive from San Marcos de Sierras), where you can rest and enjoy wonderful landscapes, mountains, swimming in the nearby river and horse riding with Carlos - the man who can speak to horses and goats... The estancia in itself is very simple somehow basic. Be aware that electricity and... More

nice setting and surroundings but not really a working farm with lots to do. Was very quiet when we got there but nothing really going on and we did manage to get a few people together for a horseride but that was it really. No bread making animal feeding lasooing going on at all! taxis - 180AR each way from... More

There are alot of good things about this estancia. The setting is great, and very informal, there´s a river nearby, and it could be very peaceful, except that the estancia itself is very noisey with guests. As a solo traveller with some Spanish, though not fluent, the informality seemed to mean that nothing was explained to me. I understood that... More
