We had a great experience. The asado was great, although a little bit too salty Ver interesting show with a real gaucho and his incredible horse. Nice horse riding after lunch! Overall a very nice outdoor experience in a real farm

We visited for one day and one night and had an unforgettable time! The team were so welcoming and couldn't do enough for us to feel comfortable. We were able to ride in a small group twice as well as having a delicious and authentic paradilla for lunch, a hearty home cooked supper of Argentine cottage pie and chocolate mousse....

Visited the Estancia on a day tour from Buenos Aires. Unique view into the Gaucho lifestyle. Welcoming owner and staff. Horses were amazing, food great. The Estancia seems to be from a different time, lost out on the pampas. Relaxing, enjoyable day.

Totally recommend a few days away from the capital on this estancia. Horse riding and time to relax as well. Good honest food but don't expect 5 star gourmet. Pablo, the staff and gauchos Could not have been more friendly and helpful. Will return here with friends next time.

We had two nights here and loved it. Pablo, the staff and gauchos were awesome. We were out horse riding everyday and got to see some of their working day on the estancia. The food was good but don't expect gourmet cuisine. It's an estancia and not a 5 star Palermo restaurant. Plenty of time to relax too. We would...

We just got back from a family vacation to BA and Iguazu. We have four teenagers so planning activities that they all enjoy can sometimes be challenging. We booked a full day at this Estancia and it turned out to be an excellent choice for our family! First of all it is a "working" estancia, meaning that it is the...

This was a superb trip to the estancia organised by Signature Tours. Our guide Pablo was exemplary in his understanding and explanation of the estancias and the significance of the gauchos including the history. The food was extremely tasty and abundant, the place was great and the horse rides enjoyable and musical shows were entertaining. We had a great and...

We had some concerns about our visit to this Estancia as a couple of previous reviewers had implied the lunch time visitors detracted from the authentic experience of staying on a Gaucho ranch. This was not the case at all! We stayed 3 nights and enjoyed every minute. The staff are delightful, the rhythm of running the Estancia makes this...

We recently visited the estancia in February. Staff is warm and friendly. Food was really tasty and plentiful. the setting is lovely. we stayed overnight, and although amenities were simple, this is a historic building and accommodations were comfortable. we really enjoyed the horse riding, as well as the gaucho music and dancing. we will definitely go there again in...
