Estancia La Margarita

Visit once, fall in love forever...

A Warm  Welcome to Estancia La Margarita 

Home of the Gaucho School (Please have a quick look to see what the school offers)

As I sit in the peaceful parklands of La Margarita writing this article about La Margarita the words of many previous guests who have visited us come into my head.¬† Many ¬†talked about why they loved it here so much, the peacefulness, the bird life and the chance to really chill out in an almost secret haven. Many talked about arriving here stressed out from travelling or work and leaving us with a renewed energy. Others talked about the chance to ride across the never ending pampas with ¬†wind in their hair and a never ending ¬†blue sky above ‚Äď a dream come true many said. I could go on and on but as I look around from my deckchair on the terrace with a never ending view in front of me of the fabulous pampas I can see why this haven is so loved by those who came. I hope you give us the chance to show you what many others have¬†discovered on¬†their¬†visit to the¬†lovely La Margarita.

Located just 280 kilometres from Buenos Aires, the location of the estancia is perfect for many visitors to take a short excursion into the famous pampas to ¬†experience the gaucho life. La Margarita is far enough away to avoid the crush of tourists suffered by estancias nearer to the capital, but close enough to enjoy a break in a wonderful location without ‚Äúthe madding crowd.‚ÄĚ

Estancia La Margarita is not a day tripper estancia so ¬†you will not find hordes of tourists here nor will you find a programme of fake gaucho shows nor singing guitar¬†strumming¬†gauchos (although our¬†gauchos¬†have been know to break into song sometimes).¬† This is a traditional working estancia that has been sympathetically refurbished over the ¬†years to provide a comfortable and homely environment. We¬†are not a 5 star hotel¬†and we¬†don’t pretend to be. However, we ¬†offer ¬†you ¬†a¬†comfortable ¬† location ¬†where ¬†you can ride out daily across the famously glorious pampas, breath ¬†pure fresh air, eat free range food ( you can even collect the eggs) and generally ¬†forget the stresses ¬†of city life for a few days. ¬†Our aim is to give you ¬†true gaucho¬†experience ¬†that you won’t forget in a wonderful location.

We often need volunteers so please have a look at our “volunteers programmes” section if you are interested
