The driver will pick you up at your hotel in Buenos Aires. Our aim is to provide you with the safest ride outside of the city and into the Pampas for your Buenos Aires Estancia Tour.
Arriving at the “cradle of tradition” you shall experience the great contrast between the hectic metropolis you just left and the quiet charm of another Argentina, that of the gauchos. Proud of its authenticity and old time ways, this friendly town has a tangible sense of history and heritage. Welcome to San Antonio de Areco!
Charged with symbolism, the silver pieces that gauchos wear and treasure, reflect not only their heritage and status but also their philosophy. Our town thrives on a reputation built through generations by its artisans, their skill, artistry, and respect for traditions. With us you will have access to the best.
You will learn about the gauchos. Origin of the argentinian economic development, these Estancias produced the funds for the country´s flourishing. Family owned and operated, this historical cattle ranch has managed to open its gates to visitors without losing its cows, authenticity, love for horses, vegetation and the way of the gauchos.
There are over 70 horses at the property, mostly “criollos” which means that, no matter how well acquainted you are with these animals, or if this is your first time amongst them, you will be able to have a close encounter; riding gaucho style, getting a tour of the grounds from a carriage, or simply petting them.
The moment you open your nostrils to the stories the breeze is telling, you will know that you made the right choice. In the pastoral setting of the Estancia, and grilled slowly over wood, the traditional free-range beef, grants the opportunity to feel and be filled like a true argentino!
Chances are you will be returning to Buenos Aires with a deeper understanding of Argentina, its idiosyncrasy, customs, history and the warmth of its people… or that you will have the biggest siesta on your way back digesting all the beef you ate and all the wine!
