Accommodation on the farm is simple, traditional and very comfortable providing you with all creature comforts. All rooms are individual and tastefully furnished in keeping with the history and style of the estancia, and have their own private bathroom. Antiques and books abound, and crisp winter nights are warmed by wood-burning stoves and open log fires.
Meals are European in style, varied and delicious with plenty of excursions into local favourites, with the dishes supplemented by the estancias own organically grown vegetables, fruit and free-range eggs. The excellent chef can cater for a range of special dietary requirements, and there are Estancia Los Potreros “own label” Argentine wines to accompany the meals. Your stay is personally hosted by the Begg family who are always pleased to share their knowledge and tales of the estancia and the local area.
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.
Best for older kids who can enjoy riding. Robin and his wife Teleri have four young children who love to have company when they are at the ranch.
