I wrote a number of ranches before my trip because I'm researching for a novel set on a gaucho ranch. This was the only one that wrote back to me to answer my questions. I set the reservation ahead of time, and they helped me to find the bus to take to San Antonio de Areco. Then when I arrived,... More

I was here only for a day trip. Went here on the recommendation of my travel agent. Nice place, great host, good food.....very peaceful........nice day out. The highlight was the music and songs by the local gauchos, just with guitar, like the old days. Mesmerising. I could go back just to hear them sing again. We saw the rooms as... More

Our family spent the day at the estancia and had a wonderful time. Our children, ages 6 and 9, loved it. We got to go horseback riding, eat a delicious asado, listen to authentic gaucho music, and watch the gauchos do tricks on the horses. The property is beautiful and tranquil, and the hosts are welcoming and very nice. The... More

Spent a day with family (3 kids 4, 6, 8 years old) and it was an unique and real "Argentinean Estancia" experience from start to finish. We truly enjoyed the staff, other guests and the peaceful surroundings of La Portena. -It is an HISTORICAL Estancia since the Argentine rancher Ricardo Güiraldes lived there. His literary work includes the book "Don... More

We traveled to the Estancia from Buenos Aires and stayed for 2 nights and stayed in the small house. The houses and the rooms are nice, clean and full of history. When you arrive, its a bit odd that there is no real introduction or explanation of what you will do while on the Estancia. We had dinner and wine... More

I visited the Estancia La Porteña with my family at the beginning of the Southern Hemisphere fall: the weather was still OK, but I guess that the place gives its best in the summer. You can either opt for a “día de campo” (you spend the day at the Estancia without settling in for the night), or take a room... More

My wife and our two kids had a day trip at the Estancia.... The setting was fabulous and they was plenty of things for the kids to do... Whether playing on the swings, in the abandoned truck or horse riding in the substantive grounds. The horse riding was pretty relaxing and was a pretty good experience for absolute beginners....

My husband and I went to the Estancia for a day trip. We arrived around noon after a tour of the town of San Areco and were welcomed by Catalina. We were offered wine and coke and empanadas and asked to relax for 15-20 mins before going for a horse ride. The empanadas were delicious! On our return we were... More

We stayed in the Estancia in March 2014 for a day and night and had mixed feelings about our stay. We really liked the Estancia and the surroundings, the houses really breathe with atmosphere of an old 19th century estate and we liked our room a lot. We did enjoy our stay and the owners company and attention at the... More
