Los Potreros is a 6,000-acre working cattle ranch and has remained in the same Anglo-Argentine family for 4 generations. The estancia is very secluded at an altitude of 3000ft, nestled between the Pampas and the towering Andes.
Accommodation is simple yet comfortable and cosy. En-suite rooms are all individually furnished with gorgeous antiques and there are fireplaces for those colder winter nights. The hacienda's chef will cook you some fantastic European cuisine using home grown organic vegetables and fruit. They even have their "own label" wine to accompany meals.
The horses are all bred on the farm and are of good temperament, sure footed and in excellent condition. Polo lessons can be combined with long or short distance horseback trail rides offering guests the unique opportunity to live and breathe the gaucho life. Other activities include charming walks in the surrounding countryside, visits to local wineries and bird watching. At the end of the day enjoy fabulous food under candle light back at the farm.
