    Map View

    This Spanish colonial-style estate is 75mi (121km) from bustling Buenos Aires. Originally a 19th-century post-house and then a working estancia (cattle ranch), this farmhouse and the outbuildings are now full of modern luxuries. Befitting the heritage, gauchos (cowboys) team up with horses here, and La Bamba de Areco is the home of an internationally competitive polo team of the same name. Traveler or horse, this is the perfect place to be fed and watered (or wined) and enjoy the wide-open spaces.
