I stayed for 1night for 2 days of intensive beginner's polo and had the best time. Marcos and Silke were both so kind and welcoming and the horses were also fab. Although unfortunately due to some rain, we didn't get in as much polo as originally planned I really feel like I gained a lot from the tuition! And to... More

Accommodation was very comfortable and relaxed. The hosts Silke and Marcos were first rate. We were made to feel very much at home. This was my first experience on a horse and to go from that to playing a game of polo all in the one afternoon was a privilege. The food was also of a high quality and of... More

wonderful place to chill at the end of a long trip. we all rode the ponies even though I was the only one who had ridden much. It was great fun and Marcos is very charming and an excellent teacher. His gaucho girl Ellie was so good with us and with the horses. Nothing was too much trouble. Amazing food... More

We came at very short notice having failed to get onto our flight home. Lucky us. Our room was fantastic with the prettiest bathroom and best shower we had during our long Argentinian adventure. There is wifi in the main building but it did not reach our room. Also no TV or phone in the room. All pluses so far... More

Like the other reviews we almost found La Sophia by chance, but so pleased we did. The guest house and facilities were fabulous and we felt like we were treated to a real weekend, not a tourist attraction. Polo was heaps of fun, even for one of our party whom had never ridden before! Marcos and Silke were excellent hosts... More

My wife and I have recently returned from a tour of Argentina and one of the highlights was our visit to La Sofia. Unfortunately due to our schedule, we were only able to visit for the day, however we did have a look round some of the rooms and would have happily stayed. During our day we enjoyed morning and...

We spent one night / 2 days at La Sofia. It was a slice of pure heaven and we had lots of fun too. The rooms were very much traditional estancia style and quite beautiful.
