Estancia “La Bamba de Areco”

Daily (AM)  

Located at the end of an avenue lined with century-old plane trees, the master house at La Bamba is built around the main courtyard, with a well-endowed library in the guard tower and a panoramic gallery opening onto the park. The cottage, the house sheltered by a vine arbour, the stables, the summer dining room and the former inn make up the majority of the buildings that surround the casco.  

Nestling in the midst of a magnificent park, this typical colonial style ensemble houses rooms and suites spread over three buildings, with several reception rooms, a billiard room, a bar, a massage room and a boutique.  

A regional and refined culinary tradition, outstanding service, charm and character make La Bamba de Areco an essential stopping place in the province of  Buenos Aires. Excursions on horseback, by carriage, or mountain bike,  Argentinian bowls game, hot stone massages, the large swimming pool and the numerous relaxation areas offer the traveller an unforgettable  restful experience and an incomparable way to restore energy.  

La Bamba de Areco also serves as the base for the international polo team that bears its name. The property includes two polo fields and the guest can also watch games during the season, with practice sessions and matches taking place almost daily. Although it is not intended to be a polo school, arrangements can be made on request for guests who are experienced polo players.
