On arrival you are met by Maria and Augustin, and you are immediately taken by their warmth and friendliness. Start talking about the flora and especially fauna, and their passion and knowledge amaze you. When you add Ramona to the mix you have the most wonderful and caring hosts that you could imagine on the most incredible and amazing corner...

Nice room, beautiful lodge, extraordinary scenery, amazing wildlife - in the company of knowledgeable and caring guides. We stayed for four days in October. On our excursions with the owners we saw orcas (every day), got up close to elephant seals, and some extraordinary birdlife. Recommended

We travelled on honeymoon there - it is definitely a couple place. Kids might enjoy but will probably find it isolated. Prior selecting, I had benchmarked with different options on the web. It was one of the only Estancias on the main part of Peninsula. I was worried with the price initially when organising as I was not sure that...

We feel really lucky to have been able to visit the estancia - it's an absolutely unforgettable experience to stay there. It isn't like a hotel - you feel like you're being swept into the family as soon as you arrive. Agustin knows where to go to give you the best opportuniy of viewing all the wildlife on the Peninsula,...

We adored everything about Rincon Chico. The hosts were very gracious and accommodating, the sights were spectacular, the room very comfortable, and meals delicious. We don't know what our favorite part of our 3 night stay was. Augustin, owner and guide, knew exactly the time and place to be to see certain sights and/or animals. It was all just perfect....

We stayed 2 nights here. It was full on from the moment we arrived. Lunch and we were off on our first excursion to view elephant seals and orcas. The meals are prepared with care but no choice on the menu; either you eat it or you don't. Very simple and not much variety. The rooms are small. Electricity limited...

You can understand previous comments like 'once in a lifetime trip' when you visit Estancia Rincon Chico. It's a beautiful ranch and we were spoilt with wildlife - including some great orca sightings. The hosts, Agustin, Maria and Ramona make the experience even more special. Agustin's tours are superb; he's overflowing with passion and knowledge and is great fun. Maria...

Great place with lots on offer. Lovely accommodation, food and wine. Agustin and Maria are superb hosts and Agustin's knowledge of the wildlife is hugely impressive. Highly recommend. Very remote but the solitude and nature is a real treat. We were fortunate to see Orcas 3 days in a row - an unforgettable experience.

We stayed at Rincon Chico in 2014. This was our second trip to Argentina and we decided to visit a second time, indeed it was high on our list of priorities. We were not disappointed. The rooms are a reasonable size and very comfortable. The food, prepared by Maria, and very well supported by Ramona is excellent. The areas around...

Overwhelming nature and immense hospitality. The scale is small (8 rooms) so your the treatment is very personal. Great hosts. Augustin showed us the special spots, where nature is overwhelming, Maria did fabulous cooking. We had an amazing time. Augustin is not only entertaining and with great knowledge of nature but also very funny! Very amiable and warm people.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Rincon Chico Ranch is an exclusive property located in the southeast corner of the Valdes Peninsula on the Patagonian Sea coast, one of the richest marine areas on Earth harboring populations of right whales, elephant seals, sea lions, orcas, penguins, and numerous species of birds and fish. For this reason the site was declared "World Heritage Site" by UNESCO in 1999. The owners are the fifth generation of settlers that inhabited the Peninsula over 120 years ago, and continuing with pride the tradition of their ancestors to breed extra fine Australian Merino sheep for wool production since 1897. In 1996 they incorporated into the activities with a prestigious group of scientists the study and conservation of wildlife, and since 2001 opened the doors to share with guests from all around the world the experience of living in this unique place surrounded by nature. ... more   less
