Cordoba and the Central Sierras: Estancia Los Potreros

Estancia Los Potreros

One of the warmest welcomes in Latin America awaits you at the Anglo-Argentine working cattle ranch Estancia Los Potreros, where by day you ride across rolling open hills, and by night enjoy home-cooking and wine accompanied by the entertaining anecdotes of your hosts.

There is a real sense of history at this isolated ranch, which has been in the same family for generations and where English is the spoken language. But its prime drawcard has to be its stable of 50 excellent, responsive horses, along with a network of riding trails across glorious sierras and meadows.

Non-riders are welcome while it is riding enthusiasts who might get the most out of a stay here. That said, it's a perfect opportunity for beginners, as the horses are so sure-footed and well-trained it’s also an excellent choice for families with children or even grandparents who would like to try their skill in the saddle. 

The 200-year-old ranch house offers wonderfully homely guestrooms dotted with books and antiques passed down through the family. Great care is taken to ensure that guests are comfortable, both in and out of the saddle. Besides riding, guests can take part in polo matches, walking and birdwatching, and there is an outdoor pool to enjoy on relaxed summer afternoons.

What our experts say

Los Potreros is a blissful place to say for horse-lovers, though you don’t have to be a rider to enjoy the superb Anglo-Argentine hospitality: echoes of Blighty, with afternoon tea on the terrace and your host’s anecdotes over aperitifsollowing a day of sure-footed rides over hilly moorland reminiscent of Yorkshire. You may also get the chance to play an informal game of polo, and laze beside the pool to recover from the excitement!
