Refurbished in 2011, this ‘estancia‘ — roughly the equivalent of an American ranch — has the feel of a posh rural hotel more than a stately home. The damask armchairs and chunky wood tables were purchased in local antique stores rather than passed down through generations. For a place to spend the day learning polo basics, this is the estancia in which to do it. Dozens of rural estates that were the private getaways of wealthy Portenos are now open to the public, and most offer a ‘dia de campo’, or country day, that’s perfect for travelers.
