Accommodations for Estancia at Sierra Chicas

This is a stationary ride where all 7 nights are spent at the estancia.

The estancia has a rustic elegance and is very comfortable providing you with all creature comforts. Many of the estancia buildings are several hundred years old, and have been lovingly restored with traditional materials to reflect the history of the area, with every room unique and individual. Antiques and books abound and cooler winter nights are warmed by log fires and wood-burning stoves. Deep roll-top baths in most of the rooms provide the perfect antidote to a long day in the saddle. One of the original cattle brands and symbols of the area, ‘The Bell’, can still be seen etched into the fireplace in the sitting room.

A ‘pool with a view’ provides a perfect place to relax, along with hammocks on the verandahs. The estancia has an eclectic range of books in virtually every room for guests to enjoy, and an artist’s box is provided for the creatively minded.

The majority of energy we use at the estancia is generated from renewable resources (wind and solar power). We are also working to make the estancia a plastic-free zone. We provide guests with re-usable thermo water bottles and we use solid shampoo and conditioner made with gentle products.

There is free Wi-Fi in the main building but as it is satellite based it can be slow and intermittent. In addition Wi-Fi is turned off during mealtimes on the estancia.
There is no cellphone coverage on the estancia.
A complimentary clothes washing service is available.

Room Occupancy
Single supplement is only mandatory if you are unwilling to share a room.
We have 2 cottages with interconnecting rooms ideal for families.

All meals are included during this trip.
Breakfast, and dinners are eaten at the estancia while, lunches are eaten on the trail.

We operate with a strong ‘farm-to-table’ ethos when it comes to our food, providing home-reared beef, free-range eggs, and wherever possible, vegetables and fruit from the estancia gardens. All farming is undertaken with organic principles. We're often told how fresh and different it tastes.

Meals at the estancia reflect both Argentine and international cuisine. They are varied and delicious with as much local products as possible. For those interested in Argentine cooking, the chef is delighted to share and demonstrate knowledge of traditional Argentine dishes from our beautiful farm kitchen, using only fresh ingredients, much of which is provided from the estancia. Meals are taken ‘family style’ with all guests eating together in the main dining room or on the verandah.

Breakfasts usually include bacon and eggs, toast, cereals, yoghurt, fruit and porridge.

Wine is served with dinner at the estancia (included in trip cost). The Estancia has its ‘own label’ Argentine wines to accompany the meals, and various grape varieties make for interesting wine tasting. 

Dietary Restrictions
The excellent chef can cater for a range of special dietary requirements with prior notice. It should be noted that we are not always able to source gluten and lactose free alternatives for some food items.

This trip includes some wine with dinner and can accommodate special dietary requests.
