Possibly one of the best places in Argentina for those interested in horse-riding, Estancia Los Potreros is an authentic working Estancia set in the hills around an hour from Cordoba city.
This delightful property has been in the same Anglo-Argentine family for several generations, bringing a real sense of place and history.
There are just seven rooms, each comfortable and spacious and decorated with period antiques.
There are more than 80 horses in the herd here ensuring that there is a horse for all styles and abilities. Riders of all standards are welcome here including beginners. The herd is a mixture of Criollos, Paso Peruanos, polo ponies and crossbreeds. Guests can also partake in the day to day horse activities of the Estancia making this a well-rounded and authentic experience.
Apart from a wealth of horse riding options (including some long-riding trips for the more adventurous), there are numerous other activities on offer including golf, trekking, wine tasting birdwatching and visits to local churches.
The majority of energy used at the estancia is generated from renewable resources (wind and solar power). All farming is undertaken with organic principles, with a strong ‘farm-to-table’ ethos when it comes to food with home-reared beef, free-range eggs, and wherever possible, vegetables and fruit from the estancia gardens.
The style of farming encourages local wildlife, including pumas, foxes and the majestic Andean Condor, and Los Potreros is currently working in conjunction with local authorities to re-introduce endangered wildlife to the hills. There’s also an active tree-planting programme and long term support for the local rural school.
