Estancia Los Potreros

Northwest Argentina

Experience authentic Argentinian life at the Estancia Los Potreros in the Cordoba region of Argentina. This family-run, 6,500-acre working cattle ranch is located high in the Sierras Chicas hills between the Pampas and the Andes, but less than an hour’s drive from Cordoba.

Accommodation is high quality yet simple, with an emphasis on comfort. The seven en-suite rooms feature antiques, while log fires keep you warm in winter.

With a maximum of 12 guests, there’s an intimate feel. Everybody dines together on home-grown organic vegetables and home-reared beef, accompanied by the estate’s own Malbec.

Guests are invited to become part of daily life. Go on trail rides around the grounds on horseback, join the gauchos as they work, learn how to lasso, and indulge in a game of polo. Out of the saddle, enjoy guided walks, try birdwatching, relax by the pool, or sip sundowners on your porch while soaking up the scenery.

Trail riding in the hills provide a surprising variety of landscapes and terrain such as rocky outcrops, hidden valleys, tumbling waterfalls and wooded paths. Other activities include watching polo, picnic lunches by a waterfall, bird watching, exploring villages, visits to the cattle station and wine tasting.
