We stayed here for two nights. We were picked up from the bus station in a very muddy pickup. The reason for which soon becoming apparant, as we left the main road, and drove along some very muddy tracks after recent rainfall. We were greeted at the estancia by the housekeeper Sylvia and two friendly dogs. The estancia was homely... More

We had 48 hours here and enjoyed every moment from the BBQ on arrival to a lovely sunrise and walk on our last morning, accompanied by a very friendly collie dog. We felt welcomed like it was our home. The birds around the homestead are fantastic, we ate lots of wonderful home cooked meals, enjoyed cosy fires for morning coffee... More

Sadly my family and I only stayed at Estancia Santa Maria for some 24 hours. It is a beautiful and very well run estancia. The house is really beautifully decorated and appointed. So wonderfully authentic, familiar and warm. The house staff are caring, courteous and helpful. The food, from breakfast to dinner was great. The evening asado at the quincho... More

A very warm welcome by the ladies who run the guest area. A lovely house with 3 bedrooms was available to us (party of 5). The living room was gorgeous. It was like having your own home on the Argentine Pampa. After arrival a fantastic BBQ-lunch was prepared for us, lots of real good meat. After lunch they take you... More

We had a great time at this place. We enjoyed the colonial style of the house, the open fire place in the living room and the good food. Best of all were the horses and the gauchos who we could join and experience their everyday work. Good advice for everyone who likes a little luxury and still wants to get... More

We arrived not knowing much about the place but were blown away from the minute we arrived. First thing - it is truly a remote place, some 40km from Gualayguachu, 30 of which are down dirt roads. We were greeted by Silvia & Susanna who were great hosts throughout, despite not speaking much English. Food during the stay was first... More

We've stayed here 3 days. Amazing place! Be aware, the staff does not speak English. We don't speak Spanish, but everyone is very helpful in giving you a wonderful experience. I'm an experienced rider, but also if you are not, you can ride. The horses are quick, but very reliable. The home cooked food by Silvia is tremendous. Wonderful gardens... More

My wife and twin 11 year olds arrived at Estancia Santa Maria at the end of three busy and amazing weeks in Argentina. We did not think our holiday could get any better, but our four days at Estancia Santa Maria were the most perfect end to an extroadinary trip. The horses were well trained; my horsey daugher was challenged,... More
