About the Estancia

Located in the district of San Antonio de Areco, the Estancia is only 60 minutes away from Buenos Aires City.

This unique typical Argentinian Estancia is considered one of the most beautiful and traditional in the country for its history, architecture and surrounding natural beauty. The main house was built in the 19th century and the park around it was designed by the French landscape professional Charles Thays.

The atmosphere of the Estancia takes you back to the times of Ricardo Güiraldes (1886-1927), the famous author of the internationally-acclaimed novel “Don Segundo Sombra”. The Estancia is the place where he found the inspiration to write about the “gauchos” to whom he rendered tribute by making them popular.
