We spent 5 nights of our honeymoon in Argentina at this wonderful Estancia. The overall experience and standard of service was sublime. Having slogged our way around Patagonia during the first week of our trip, we were looking forward to relaxing and being pampered at this Estancia. The stay on an estancia was a prerequisite of my wife, who is a keen horse rider, but being relatively inexperienced with horses myself, I wasn`t entirely sure what to expect.
I needn`t have worried...the level of attention to detail was wonderful. Access to the ranch was always going to be restricted as the nearby Bariloche airport has been closed due to a Chilean ash cloud, but following a flight to Esquel, we were bussed to Bariloche by the airline. As the Estancia was en route to Bariloche we were dropped 45 mins short and were delighted to find Luis, from Peuma Hue,waiting for us - despite our flight being early! Further examples included the complimentary massage and champagne to welcome us on our honeymoon.
We payed for an all inclusive deal and this proved great value for money as it included 4 meals a day and all the activities. The scenery and hiking terrain were astounding - the experience being enhanced by the company of the estancia`s two golden retrievers Alpha and Gandi.
The food was always excellent and the wine was included in the cost, although you are restricted to whatever is being cooked for all the guests on a given day.
The horse riding was a totally exhilarating experience and despite being a beginner, I was made to feel entirely comfortable and even learned to trot. My wife, being an experienced rider, thoroughly enjoyed herself.
In short - what an amazing place!
