Luxury Estancia Steeped in History with a Fantastic Atmosphere

Argentina Holidays would not be the same without a stay in a traditional Estancia. Back in 1830, Estancia La Bamba de Areco lay on the “Camino Real” (Royal Road) that connected Buenos Aires to Northern Argentina. Today, this is one of the oldest Argentine estancias (ranches) in the area.

Its main building with a guard tower, stables and 200 year old park are part of the history and birthplace of the Gaucho (Argentine cowboy). The Estancia's name comes from the Celtic word “Bahamba” which means "place of rest and hospitality"” and Estancia La Bamba de Areco was a pioneer in opening its doors to welcome guests. It has been receiving visitors from around the globe since the 1980s and underwent a complete update and renovation of its facilities in 2009, giving the Estancia a luxurious makeover.

Guestrooms and suites feature dark hard-wood floors, antique colonial furniture, art works and local fabrics. All rooms are non-smoking and look onto the park, shaded patios, or the polo fields. The oldest building in the Estancia is the18th century “La Pulperia” where horses and carriages found shelter and rest. It eventually became the place for gaucho gatherings where they would sing, dance or dine. Today it is a cosy retreat for reading, relaxing, or enjoying a glass of wine or a cup of tea.

Although it is not a working Estancia, La Bamba de Areco is a luxurious Estancia experience and focuses on service and gastronomy. Ride one of the Estancia's horses, watch some polo, enjoy a nice Asado barbeque or simply relax and take in the surrounding areas.
