Day 1 : Arrive Cordoba Days 2-3 : Estancia Los Potreros Day 4 : Return Buenos Aires
Fly to Cordoba today where you are met and transfer to the nearby estancia for your 3 night stay. Set in a beautiful reserve at the top of the Cordoba hills, the estancia dates from 1574 when it began breeding mules for use in silver mines in Peru. Today it is an idyllic retreat for horsemen and nature lovers. Enjoy an introduction to the estancia's day to day routine and settle in to comfort this evening.
Your time at the estancia is flexible to do as you like and a variety of activities are available to you. Choose from short horseback rides or polo events and lessons. Extend your stay to include an overnight-packing trip or plan to visit during a fixed polo week with events occurring everyday. Guests are encouraged to immerse themselves in the estancia's routine, assisting the gauchos with moving horses, seasonal cattle drives, and other day to day tasks. For those interested in cuisine, the on-site chef is delighted to demonstrate traditional Argentine dishes from the farm kitchen, using many ingredients grown on the estancia's grounds. For the hiking enthusiast, explore the 6500 acres of rolling hills rich in bird and plant life. Those who would prefer to sit back and relax, a well-stocked library, fantastic wines, a nearby golf course or a pool await you.
The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
