Estancia Los Potreros

Immerse yourself in Argentine rural tradition, culture and history at Estancia Los Potreros, a 6500 acre working organic cattle farm and horse riding heaven just 50 minutes from Córdoba airport.

Since 2001 the Begg family - who have cared for and lovingly tended this farm for 4 generations - warmly welcome small numbers of guests into their charming home to share and participate in their lifestyle. Los Potreros is a unique estancia, whether your passion is riding with gauchos, bird watching, exploring scenic walking trails or simply relaxing amongst local tradition and culture, all washed down with exceptional home-cooked food and wine. The owners of Los Potreros are proud of its reputation amongst horse lovers and riders of all abilities, with its herd of well over 100 horses - criollos, Peruvian Paso, quarter horses and polo ponies. Riders and non-riders alike are all very welcome!

Los Potreros is a bewitching place. For the gauchos that still work on horseback and along with guides show you their world - this rugged, wild landscape below wide open skies. For the precious slowing of time, horse and rider moving (mas o menos in my case) as one, the sheer thrill and exhilaration of riding; For its history as well as disconnection with the outside world and a slower, more natural pace of life. For the warmest most personal hospitality imaginable, a family opening their home freely and proudly. For the precious art of conversation and the evening’s magically refilling malbec glass. For the open kitchen (and open wine cellar), for that slow cooked, organic, home reared osso buco of my arrival night after a long journey. For practical, embedded (& largely unaware of itself) sustainability. I loved being part of this fascinating (and valuable) way of life, it was too short, I'd come back in a heartbeat.
