PROS: Very authentic and nice place, I suppose it is actually calm and enjoyable during mid-week. We didn't book any extra activities, but it was possible to ride horses and even book for hot air balloon riding. It is run by their very owners, and english is spoken. They are nice and well intended people, but should work towards improving... More

We began our trip to Argentina here. We were picked up at the airport and offered a short tour of the lovely Buenos Aires enclave of San Isidro before continuing on to the estancia. Eduardo and Lili made us feel at home right away and offered the kind of recent historical perspectives, cultural insights and advice that other sources of... More

We chose this estancia because we didn't want a "resort" environment. It was like staying at a friends home. After five busy days in Buenos Aires, the ranch was a little bit of heaven. The staff were wonderful and accomodating. The food was simple and delicious! It was exactly what we expected.

Thought it would be a proper guest house, but we were just left alone in the house while the proprietors went to their house. Food was cooked without asking our dietary requirements (I don't eat cheese so had nothing to eat), thought everything was included so was shocked to get a bill for drinks at the end. If I am...

We spent our first two nights in Argentina at this Estancia. It was wonderful and convenient because Lilli and Eduardo picked us up at the airport and arranged a minibus for us to the city at the end of our stay. The staff and other guests were very friendly and gave us great tips to help us plan the rest... More

This is a ranch, so I can forgive it the animal waste and mud everywhere. However it is also a place where people are paying quite a hefty price to lodge so there are certain standards. For example, when a thunderstorm rolls through and the lights go out, don't come by with candlesticks for me to light... is it too... More

Our stay at the Estancia was lovely. It was a short trip from the city and gave my family the opportunity to relax and enjoy the last days of our vacation. The intimate setting made us feel as if we owned the place and we had the freedom to do whatever we wanted. Loved the horse riding adventure with the... More

We stayed for 3 nights at this Estancia. We booked it several months in advance, and decided to end our trip to South American here, to wind down before we headed home. A lot of the reviews that have recently been posted about the Estancia are absolutely accurate, but were written after we booked and paid a deposit. We were... More

This place is a complete flop. The website is completely misleading. It is NOT a traditional Argentine estancia by any means -- more like an unattractive homestead in barren Oklahoma with an odd assortment of animals the owners like to call their pets. The entire homestead is run by a live-in family totalling 10 kids, none of whom have had... More

I would recommend against staying at the estancia, particularly in the winter. The grounds were muddy and unwalkable and littered with animal feces. The food was nothing special, and the owners were hardly there, leaving a family (who were nice enough and tried hard) to run a place full of guests. If you want to ride horses, I would suggest...
