We stooped there for two nights and it was just delightful. The learning of the gaucho life is for the fun but it allows to visit the wonderful surroundings. The house is just as it shoul dbe and thewelcome from the entire staff is just perfect.

We only stopped here for one night as we wanted to see a working Estancia. While we were fairly limited in our time we were lucky enough to be allocated a Guide, Jose, who explained how the gaucho's work while we watched on. The lining up of the horses after lunch while 4 were selected for the afternoons work. My... More

We have stayed several times at Estancia Santa Cecilia over the last 10 years. The first time when my children were very young and the last time when they were quite grown up, in their late teens. We all loved it every time. This is a real and authentic Estancia experience, where you get to stay on a working ranch... More

We loved staying here but it wouldn't be for everyone. The key thing to understand is that you are staying in someone's home, not a hotel, and it happens to be a real working ranch (estancia). The main house has great charm and is filled with antique furniture which they use, this is not a gallery in any way. The... More

Dusty Rooms, Toilets that splash dirty toilet water back on you (which actually spills over onto the floor), and 20 year-old mattresses, is not what you expect when you are paying $500 per night. Hairs in the food and the maid went #2 in our toilet. On top of that, the owner of the place said she was giving us... More

Our stay at Santa Cecilia was truly the highlight of a wonderful trip to Argentina. The beautiful old building with it's fine furniture , set in wonderful grounds was something you would normally only dream about. The owner, Silvia, is a really gracious hostess who treat our stay as though we were house guests rather than strangers. Our room was... More

Estancia Santa Cecilia was our home away from home for 5 days in September and I've never before so thoroughly enjoyed a vacation spot. Silvia is a lovely, intelligent and intuitive hostess, providing food and drink aplenty (I ate way more than I should have!) and making sure we had our plans for the day arranged. The riding was spectacular... More

Fantastic place. Beautiful old building in a beautiful garden, with antique furniture but very comfortable and homely. Excellent family meals, plenty of beer or wine and tea! It was chilly when we were there (even a frost one morning) but log fires were burning all the time and extra heaters & cosy quilts were provided. The horse-riding was really special... More

This was truly a memorable stop over on our holiday. Silvia was a warm and gracious host and made us feel part of the family. Tecko was on hand to help us with the riding and was very understanding given our riding experience ranged from zero to advanced. The riding can be as long or short as you want but... More

My partner and i stayed there from the 1st to the 4th Dec. We had an amazing time there. The service was great, the food was the best we had in Argentina and most of all the welcome and hospitality we received from Silvia made us feel like we were at home. There are lots of activities to choose from... More
