We first opened our home to visitors over 15 years ago.
Today the estancia is considered one of the ´must visit´destinations in Argentina. People come to us from all over the world for a genuine estancia experience, or for the ultimate riding holiday.
Everyone is welcome
No matter their ages and backgrounds, whether they're a couple, a solo traveller, or a family, guests arrive as strangers to Estancia Los Potreros and usually leave as friends. We ensure our visitors enjoy the highest standards in personalised hospitality by hosting no more than 12 people at any one time. This means we all eat, drink, laugh and ride together in a warm and friendly environment - just the way the estancia has always been.
What's more, our estancia has been recommended as one of the top guest experiences in Argentina by the BBC, the Sunday Times, National Geographic Traveller, Tatler and Footprint guides, to name but a few.
"Los Potreros just seems to attract the type of people that you enjoy meeting and making friends with. Whether you are a lone traveller, a couple, a family or a group of friends you will love this place."
Every day is different
Every day at the estancia is different. The would-be gauchos amongst you can canter along grassy hilltops, take a dip in natural rock pools, visit local churches on horseback, help round-up the young horses (to protect them from the elusive puma), learn how to lasso, or have a go at polo.
Out of the saddle, the cattle and horse trails make for wonderful walking, taking guests to awe-inspiring viewpoints and hidden waterfalls whilst experiencing the plentiful birdlife and colourful wildflowers, or watching the gauchos at work. Enjoy the best of Argentine food and wine with home-reared beef washed down with Malbec. The serenity and landscape lend themselves to those who enjoy painting, photography or writing, or simply curling up with a book, whilst good conversation and a gin and tonic are never far away.
Our permanent team have nearly 100 years combined experience on the estancia, so for them, the estancia is their home as much as their place of work. Whether it's Pato, our cook, inviting you into the kitchen to see what she is baking for the day, or Leo, one of the gauchos showing off his skills on horseback, our team are always ready to share special glimpses of real Argentine life.
The estancia is located on the beautiful but little-known range of hills known as the ‘Sierras Chicas.’ Nestled between the Pampas and the Andes, the area is designated provincial reserve, renowned for its stunning scenery, abundant wildlife and rural traditions. Despite its privileged location, the estancia is less than an hour's drive from the international airport of Córdoba, with connections to Europe, Chile, Peru, Brazil, Panama and the United States.
