Buenos Aires, Argentina
Candelaria del Monte is set in the Pampas grasslands around 120km from Buenos Aires. Many similarly located properties are much larger and rather touristy, however this family run estancia is intimate, authentic and the service very personal indeed. The six rooms are traditionally decorated with antiques, grand fireplaces and colourful wallpaper alongside the artist owner’s quirky sculptures. Feedback is flawless thanks to the all-round care the staff and owner, Sebastian, place upon their guests.
There are a variety of activities for those wishing to do experience the best of the Pampas. Choose to horse ride, bird watch, take polo lessons or perhaps round up the cattle to gain an understanding as to how the farming side functions.
The food is very tasty and based on traditional dishes such as stews and the asado or Argentine barbecue is the highlight with huge hunks of home-reared beef grilled to perfection by the gauchos. Other ingredients such as the herbs and vegetables are largely grown on the estancia.
Estancia Candelaria del Monte serves as a great destination to unwind after a long flight or given that Argentina doesn’t have a beach option, it is perfect for some R & R at the end of a trip to simply relax beside a pool.
