We loved our stay at Estancia El Ombu and were disappointed when we had to go.We stayed 3 nights but wished we had stayed 4 as we were enjoying it so much,we rode twice a day and were given nice horses as we can ride and were allowed to go off ahead and canter.
The scenery is lovely and the birds are really good,lovely owls sitting on the fences,as well as other varieties of birds
The Gauchos are great and we really enjoyed the rides with them and the displays at lunch time .
The rooms are authentic and so is the whole Estancia and very original.The food was really good and plenty of it.
The meat at lunch is amazing, with lovely salads and you get any Empanadas at around 12.00 with a drink then lunch at 1.30.
Then you get tea and cake later in the afternoon before the afternoon ride.
Thee pool was lovely after riding and we swam most days.
The Gaucho has an amazing relationship with his horse and gives a really good in sight into this.
I loved my horse called Bekki and would have loved to take it back to the UK
