In the heart of the Pampas, this colonial style building is full of character and encompasses all the traditions of the gaucho. In the style of a country ranch, Estancia la Bamba de Areco, is a charming ‘must see’ spot in the Pampas.
There are just 11 rooms decked out with colonial furniture, local artwork, textiles and dark wooden fittings. All the rooms have king size beds with Egyptian bed linen, impressive views of the pampas, terraces or the polo fields.
The food, comprised of traditional Andean fare, is delicious, with the emphasis not surprisingly on world renowned steaks and meats. After suppers guests can relax in the Pulperia, the oldest building in the hotel, where they can enjoy a glass of wine whilst the gauchos play and sing folklore tunes and songs.
Beauty treatments, hot stone massages, gaucho skills demonstrations and polo lessons add to the experience of staying in this original, unique estancia.
Why we love it
The Estancia is named after the Celtic word 'Bahamba', which means 'place of rest and hospitality', which pretty much sums it up.
