Sublime. If you want to escape to paradise then head out to Los Potreros. Fabulous scenery, incredible horses, outstanding hospitality, food to die for. I have always wanted to ride with the gauchos and this experience surpassed my expectations. I travelled alone but never felt lonely; Kevin, Lou and their wonderful staff make you feel like one of the family.... More

If you just care about horse riding then it's fine. Very nice hosts and good local and gap year UK staff . The accommodation is very old , the bathrooms archaic, the food is tiny portions and even when a top up is offered its still inadequate. The canapés offered before dinner are so small you can hardly see them.... More

Many thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback, and whilst we are of course pleased that you enjoyed the horse riding, hosting and service side of your stay with us, we are truly concerned to hear that the rest of your experience did not live up to your expectations. The estancia is our family home, and as such... More

We stayed for three nights at Los Petreros and enjoyed every minute, despite violent thunderstorms and rain for a fair part of the time. Kevin, Lou and their four young British 'guides' were great hosts and we loved the homely, house party atmosphere. The food was all excellent and all of the guests and some of the hosts eat together... More

A wonderful 4 night break. Only reason have not awarded very top marks is have no experience to judge it by. Estancia sits well over 1000kms above sea-level with uninterrupted views all around. Horses, many in number, are rotated providing a variety to ride. My wife went as an absolute novice, care on the rides could not have been better,... More

We just returned from an outstanding family holiday at Estancia Los Potreros. Louisa and Kevin were incredible hosts and together with all their guides, gauchos and staff made for an amazing vacation! The horses were best ever - smooth, responsive and wonderful to ride. Setting was stunning too...can't ask for much more. Loved it!

Our second time staying at this wonderful Estancia and having dreamt about returning for two years we weren't disappointed - still one of the most amazing places we have ever visited. Three aspects come together to make this place truly magical.... The Estancia and the staff: Lou and Kevin are the most generous hosts and you really do feel like... More

Beattiful location, great staff, friendly owners, good food, plenty of wine and the rest I should keep secret, so as not to spoil it if you go. However being a horse owner with a non-riding partner, we had a great time and probably as close to authentic riding with Gauchos as it gets.

We were truly spoilt on our 3-night stay at Los Potreros. Everything was wonderful and we couldn't have asked for more. The hosts and their staff were extremely welcoming, and we had such a relaxing stay, enjoying riding, walking and cuddles with the dogs! The horses were impeccably behaved and lovely to ride, and the setting is simply beautiful. Our... More
