A friend who had visited Buenos Aires recommended that we visit a ranch to experience the hospitality of the ranchers and the gauchos. We were welcomed with cold drinks and empanadas beside the lovely old building dating back to the 1850’s. We wandered around the beautiful parkland with its many old trees and found some very colourful parrots. Then over to the horses to decide whether we would go horse riding or go for a ride in the buggy. We chose the latter and thoroughly enjoyed the ride along the track beside the paddocks. By this time, we were ready for the amazing Barbecue lunch with a lovely wine under the shade of the old trees. So much delicious food that I could not think of eating any food that night. The entertainment came next with the gauchos performing their traditional dances. A young gaucho showed us how they tamed their horses which was so tender and beautiful. Then it was time for the long drive back to the city after a thoroughly enjoyable day.

We finished off our tour of Argentina with two nights here. Diego and his staff were so welcoming and kind. The building dates from the 1880s so is a bit "shabby chic" but is all the better for it. It is like an opportunity to step back in time, leave the normal stresses of life behind and truly relax. The food is excellent and so is the rest of the experience you will have here. My wife is disabled but we managed to have a delightful trip around in a horse drawn cart and I later went on a horse ride (the first time in nearly 50 years) and it was amazing. The countryside is flat (it is the Pampas after all) but it is still delightful, with a beauty all of its own.

After a little trouble confirming our reservation, we were very well informed and welcomed at the Estancia. A driver picked us up at the hotel, and we had a nice and safe drive, conversating through google translate. We were welcomed at the Estancia, and showed to a very nice room. The garden and houses were very clean and well attended. The empanadas were the best we ate in BA.Lunch was massive, but very good. It strook us that the gauchos not really enjoyed being waiters. We loved all the dogs around the farm - this must be heaven for them - getting fed all this lovely meat! Maybe not so healthy, but they looked very happy. After lunch there was a little show of folklore dancing, and again - maybe the gauchos and the ladies of the farm could use a little pep-talk to provide some more enthusiasm. Although I perfectly understand that doing the same show over and over again is not really the most exiting part of their jobs. And dont mistake me; they were all very nice and friendly! We also enjoyed the little show with the gaucho and his horse. And the oldest gaucho was so cute and authentic, always with a bright smile. For us, the main experience was when we got to join gaucho Johanna riding around the property. The horses were very well trained, and our dreams from when we were little horse-loving kids (and reading comics from the Wild West) about countering over the pampas, looking over the cattle and horses, came true. Johanna was also very informed about the wildlife and surroundings of the farm, and we got answers to all our questions. By dinnertime we were not yet hungry after the enormous lunch, but dinner was good. We would have loved it if one of the owners or gauchos or anyone came and talked to us during dinner - we were really craving to know more about the place! Before we left, we spent a couple of hours at the pool with a cold beer. We loved the place!

The estancia is about 1 1/2 to 2 hours out of the city. The place is beautiful. The staff had a program in placed for their guest. Horseback riding was included., I wish that we were given more time to ride the horse. But there were a number of us, so I understand the limited time. The food was good, we served different cuts of meats, so I paced my eating. The program in placed was ok, they hae singers and music, dance and an act on taming a horse.
