For a unique experience, stay on an estancia in Argentina and gain an insight into an authentic working cattle or horse ranch. Other estancias are luxury wine estates, which also welcome visitors. Almost all are attractively situated on the grassy pampa or amidst the steppes and foothills of the mountains; wherever you stay you'll be able to glimpse a bygone era, filled with faded glamour, gauchos in traditional bombacha trousers and contemporary luxury.
Accommodation is often comfortable and rustic and there are lots of options for those who want to muck in with the gauchos or simply see the workings of the ranch whilst enjoying the gentle country pace of life.
