This late-colonial Italian Palazzo-style building is located in the heart of the Pampas near the gaucho town of San Antonio de Areco, only a few hours from Buenos Aires.

It set in luxuriant parkland and has been adapted to receive paying guests. There are nine simple, atmospheric rooms each with a jumble of period furniture.

There are two unheated swimming pools, pleasant to use in the summer months. Activities available include horse riding within the estancia, carriage drives, nature walks. You'll also be treated to a delicious Asado, a feast of a BBQ.
