As a break from our time spent in Buenos Aires, my fiancée and I visited La Porteña on an overnight trip in January, accompanied by my sister, her husband, and their seven-month old son. It was a wonderful experience that we all enjoyed. Here's what to expect - a warm and welcoming staff who make truly make you feel relaxed... More

My mother and I enjoyed the day riding horses and eating a delicious home made argentine bbq complete with chimichurri and steak. It was absolutely beautiful - we even tried the traditional tea, yerba mate with the very pleasant staff.

We were only in San Antonio de Areco for one full day. We decided to spend this day on a traditional estancia. However, it felt really uncomfortable. At first we were the only ones, and we had to wait for other people to do a tour. After half an hour they told us that we were going horsebackriding. This was... More

We spent our last two nights of a 2 week trip to Buenos Aires at Estancia La Portena de Areco. It is a fabulous old ranch with a true feeling from a historic era. The grounds are lovely, and the home has great character. It is not luxurious or modern, but very comfortable with everything you need, including wifi. The... More

This is a phantastic place to escape from Buenos Aires. We spent one day at the estancia and enjoyed the area, the many attractive activities, excellent food and extraordinary charming staff. Should we go to Buenos Aires again, we certainly would visit the estancia again! We can highly recommend this place!

If you are looking for quality accommodation this is not for you. However if you are after a real taste of an old style ranch this is it. My title of mixed feelings is because we encountered a few problems especially with the electricity which was intermittent. On our second day a lot more people arrived which made the atmosphere...

We booked for one full day and the estancia (sleeping one night). From the moment we arrived until the moment we left: someone was always taking care of us. Between the historical past of this place, the careful staff and the activities: we were absolutely delighted to have the sight of the Gaucho lifestyle. Even during a weekday, we had... More

we looked forward to a couple of days out in the country to better understand the life in Argentina on a working ranch. The people was very friendly and service minded. The program that the gauchos performed was very good and we all participated in the dancing etc. Unfortunately the food and wine quality vary a lot and the whole... More

Our family of five stayed on this lovely ranch for 3 nights during our road-trip around Argentina. We had hoped to attend the festivities at the famous "Dia de la Tradicion" in nearby San Antonio de Areco, but record flooding this year forced town officials to move the festival to a different weekend. Regardless, our stay at the Estancia was... More

We booked this last minute, on the fly, knowing almost nothing. I was nervous as I didn't even have time to confirm our travel. But everything was taken care of and truly - I loved it! First off all, Catalina and the entire staff truly wanted us to be happy and comfortable and were always kindly checking in. Knowing that... More
