For a foreign traveler who is first time in Argentina, this was a perfect place to get to know something about the gaucho culture and get to see the beautiful Argentinian countryside. I was really impressed from the first moment we landed on the farm, by the warm welcome, by the beautiful buildings, and of course by the the surrounding nature.
During our stay we participated all of the great activities they offer, but still had enough "free time" to wander around the nature, play with the cute farm animals and relax in the garden enjoying some wine and tasty empanadas. All the food and drinks were included in the price and there was plenty of it.
The buildings in the Estancia had a lot of history and they were well maintained. I really liked the rustic style and rooms that we decorated with antique furniture. I made me feel like I was in the "old times"!
It is quite easy to travel to San Antonio de Areco by bus from Buenos Aires (less than 2 hours), and if needed, the personnel from the Estancia can arrange the drive from there on. I would definitely recommend for everyone visiting BA to take few days and go to see the countryside outside of the busy capital.More
