Setting the highest standards in hospitality, the Begg family delight in welcoming guests to share their home and lifestyle, providing a unique and unforgettable vacation with first hand contact of the rural traditions of Argentina, whilst not abandoning creature comforts. The estancia prides itself on setting a high standard of professionalism in accommodation and hospitality, taking care of guests with unrivaled personal attention to detail.

Every day at the estancia is different, and guests are encouraged to watch and participate in the daily activities of the farm. Canter along grassy hilltops; take a dip in natural rock pools; visit local churches on horseback; help the gauchos round up the young horses in order to protect them from the elusive puma; take an overnight trip north into the sierras during the summer; watch the horse-breaker at work or try your hand at lassoing. Informal polo is usually played weekly on the estancia, so guests should have the chance to be introduced to this fun, fast and highly addictive game. Regular polo weeks are also run for beginner and novice players, with daily tuition, chukkas and a mini-tournament.

With a herd of over 80 well-loved riding horses, there is something for everyone. The herd is a mix of Criollos, polo ponies and Paso Peruanos most of whom have been bred on the farm. The Paso Peruano has a fifth ‘gait’, a running walk, which is extremely comfortable to ride, and all horses are soft-mouthed and ridden ‘Western style’ with a loose rein.

Out of the saddle, the cattle and horse trails make for wonderful walking and trekking, taking guests to hidden rock pools and spectacular viewpoints, whilst observing the colorful and plentiful bird life. The serenity and landscape lend themselves to those who enjoy painting or writing, or simply curling up with a book, whilst good conversation is never far away.

Slightly further afield, there are three excellent golf courses, world-class dove shooting, mountain biking and paragliding. All can be accessed with relative ease from the estancia, along with a number of unusual and historic buildings in the area.

Property amenities:
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. Antiques abound and cooler winter nights are warmed by log fires and wood-burning stoves.

Estancia Los Potreros is located in the Sierras Chicas north-west of Cordoba city. The estancia is under one hour away from Cordoba airport by car.
