Estancia La Bandada
Little more than an hour’s drive from the international airport in Buenos Aires, La Bandada lies within the Pampa, a quintessentially Argentine region of endless plains and wide open skies. Like many estancias a stay here is about peace, relaxation and rural Argentine hospitality with a personal touch. Your hosts extend an informal welcome to the 150 year-old estate house, set alongside sedate lawns and beautiful parkland resonating with birdsong and the scent of flowers during summertime. With an outdoor pool (open summer), this is an idyllic spot to unwind between upcountry adventures. If you are feeling more active you can go riding, cycling, sign up for a cooking class or simply wander the grounds and feel close to nature.
