One of Argentina’s best boutique Estancias for experience and elegance, you can’t really get more authentic, intimate and refined than La Bamba de Areco.
Positioned at the heart of the Pampas plains, 120 kilometres from Buenos Aires and but a few minutes drive from one of the oldest towns in Argentina, San Antonio de Areco, this estancia is not only perfectly placed but captures the rugged romance of the gaucho whilst still being impeccably stylish and well-run.
Avenues of plane trees lead you through the ranch’s lush parklands and paddocks to the typically 19th-century corralled casco (main house) painted in proud Vermillion red and white – permitting in parts a couple of vines to steal up its walls. This was once an important private home along the Camino Real (Royal Road).
Its eleven rooms are all done up in a smart, farmhouse style that is classically rural but with a contemporary lift. These open up onto the ranch’s shaded wraparound patios, perfect for relaxing, watching the ponies and where you can dine in summer. La Pulperia is the estancia’s own authentic gaucho inn converted to a separate lounge bar and boutique, and of course then there’s the array of different equestrian activities and excursions to choose from.
La Bamba is a Jacada Signature Property for excellence in personalised service and luxury. Jacada guests staying at La Bamba will enjoy a complimentary Horse Whispering Show.
