I had researched for an estancia/ranch experience for our family in South America and chose San Pedro. We arrived at sunset and seeing the beautiful chapel lit up across the pond and the discrete lighting amongst the parkland setting and traditional style buildings was heavenly. The rooms were spacious and spotlessly clean with both antique furniture and huge modern king size beds and spas. The theme of the very best of the past and the traditional ways combined with the best of modern life (wi fi everywhere kept my teenagers happy telling their facebook friends how great their stay was) continued.
We booked five nights and would have easily enjoyed a fortnight. I would highly recommend coming straight to San Pedro after landing in Buenos Aires, then tackle that wonderful city after a great rest.
The hacienda is a working farm owned by a large family and they employ only local people. The staff were universally delightful, kind and patient. They spoke no english and we spoke no spanish but with mime and a sense of humour we always sorted out any needs. The food is served very regularly and in different locations around the hacienda and one memorable day outside of an abandoned farmhouse. Another time we were surprised by being led by lantern light across the parkland to the original building that served as a wayside inn in the early 18th centrury. Dinner was served very formally with candlebras lit in room of our own that was so atmospheric. If only those old walls could talk.
We have seen some wonderful places in Europe but the sense of history evoked at San Pedro Estancia was unique and exquisite.
Finally, our host, Diego was all one could wish for and more. He spoke very good English and translated for us if necessary. Every evening, he would discuss what we might like to do the next day and make suggestions as to how, when, why etc. We could have been completely active or fully relax by the pool or in the shade of the verandahs.
I cannot recommend this place more highly and hope the reader has the same opportunity to experience San Pedro Estancia as we did.
