Estancia Los Potreros is set in a beautiful reserve at the top of the Cordoba hills in the centre of Argentina. This organic working farm, breeds Aberdeen-Angus cattle and Paso Peruano horses and has been in the same Anglo Argentine family for four generations offering the pleasures of estancia life with exceptional riding. The owners have a passion for conservation, and cherish the farms “spring water” and utilise wind and solar energy.Home rides, long-distance pack trips, polo, assisting the gauchos with cattle or simply relaxing by the pool are some of the many activities.
The riding terrain is exciting ranging from steep rocky paths down tree-studded gullies, to open, grassy hilltops. Los Potreros is a year round destination known for its fabulous horses. “The adventure allows you to experience the best traditions of Argentina while not abandoning all creature comforts.”No visit to Argentina would be complete without the chance to try your hand at a game of polo. Informal polo is played once a week on the estancia (weather permitting) and is open for all guests to participate. The estancia specialises in introducing this extremely fun and highly addictive sport to guests who have not had the chance to try it before.
A short lesson on the ground and some practice ‘stick and ball’ is followed by a game, set at a pace to suit riding abilities. Throughout the year there are a number of fixed date polo weeks. These are aimed at the beginner, novice or occasional polo player who wish to combine this exciting game with some fabulous riding on the estancia.
For the less energetic, a ‘pool with a view’ provides a perfect place to relax, along with hammocks on the verandahs.Accommodation on the farm is simple and very comfortable providing you with all creature comforts. All rooms are individual and tastefully furnished, and all have their own private bathroom.
Meals are European in style, varied and delicious with plenty of excursions into local dishes, with the dishes supplemented by our own organically grown vegetables, fruit and free-range eggs. Their excellent chef can cater for a range of special dietary requirements. They have our ‘own label’ Argentine wines to accompany the meals, and various grape varieties make for interesting wine tasting.
