Looking for a quiet, peaceful place to escape the whirlwind of the city? You can’t go far wrong with an Argentinian estancia. We’ve taken the liberty of rounding up some of the best estancias in this beautiful country. Don’t forget to Contact a Latin Routes Travel Specialist for more information about any of our hotels, or just to find out a bit more about Argentina itself!

Estancia Dos Lunas, Cordoba 

Estancia Dos Lunas is a fantastic, historical building set amongst 2300 hectares of beautiful countryside outside Cordoba itself. With vast open green spaces for you to explore (either on foot or on horseback), this hotel really utilises its rural location for your benefit. The hosts are famously welcoming, always available when you need them and generally making sure your holiday to Argentina is unforgettable!

The estancia itself is over 100 years old, preserved in the original ‘English’ style, meaning it has a grand and ambitious design. Built by an English family in the early twentieth century, Estancia Dos Lunas has a sense of rich history unlike any hotel in the area. This is especially noticeable in small details around the hotel. Each guestroom has been tastefully decorated in a rustic style, with the addition of your own private bathroom. In addition to this, there are some great facilities including an excellent pool area, horse riding, trekking and bird-watching excursions along with a typical Gaucho barbeque – not one to be missed!

Estancia La Bandada

This hotel is only an hour away from Buenos Aires, but you’ll feel like it’s a million miles away! A sophisticated and welcoming country house, Estancia La Bandada is set in the heart of the Argentinian countryside. Explore the serene gardens on foot or on horseback at your leisure before dining in the high-quality restaurant, serving traditional and international dishes sourced from local produce.

The estancia has a colonial feel, having been built in the 1830s – however, there are some modern additions, including a beautiful swimming pool, games room and a glass hallway connecting different wings of the house, affording you astonishing views of the garden and grounds. As if that wasn’t enough, Estancia La Bandada offers a wide range of excursions from horse riding, chariot rides, tours of the grounds along with more traditional farm activities. Bird-watching is also on offer for wildlife enthusiasts.
