The gaucho is to the Argentine Pampas what the cowboy is to the American west or the stockman to the Australian outback, a figure of almost mythical proportions who helped to forge the country’s cattle-breeding heritage. The skills of the gaucho, his horsemanship and the tools of his trade are still well honoured and revered today on the Pampas.
The estancias themselves are usually family-run farms handed down through numerous generations. A stay at one of these ranches offers a unique glimpse into traditional Argentine life in the country. Many of the province of Buenos Aires’ most beautiful estancias are also home to the country’s finest polo players. Spend the day riding out with the gauchos, take a drive in a horse-drawn carriage down tree-lined avenues through the main park and enjoy exquisitely-prepared local food and wine with charming hosts.
‘Greetings. this has turned out to be a paradise in so many ways....so a big thank you from us.
Wonderful support from your company over here....we were met at the airport (with flowers!!!!!) and introduced to our personal guide who is fabulous. Can't get over the attention to detail ....cool flannels, chilled water, fresh juice on arrival, bag full of thoughtful goodies for our trip, wonderful rooms with bathrooms bigger than our bedroom at home(!) and we were upgraded to a suite and as I write we are listening to tropical birdsong as we look out over the lagoon from our balcony. Wow!!!!!
I could go on but I'll spare you.
Thanks a million
