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

We had visited this estancia two years ago for a dia de campo and we liked it. This time they even excelled themselves. At no moment did the staff make you feel like they did this every day. You always felt like they were really pleased to have you there and made every effort for you to have a good... More

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
