Reasons to Visit Argentina

  • Estancias

    Argentina’s history of agriculture and in particular of rearing livestock has resulted in hundreds of estancias, or ranches, across the country that open their doors year round to visitors looking for a taste of the authentic cowboy life.

  • Iguazú Falls

    Straddling the Argentina and Brazil border it is the Argentine side that provides the opportunity for the detailed and close up views of some of the 276 waterfalls that make up Iguazú. The numerous vantage points and forested trails make for a wonderful experience of nature at her best.

  • Steak

    Sample one of the world's best steaks! Enjoy in the open air on a traditional asado (barbecue) or in an elegant restaurant in a fabulous setting in the Argentine capital.

  • Whale watching

    Each year between June and November the Southern Right Whales pass the Valdes peninsula offering spectacular opportunities to get close to these magnificent giants.

  • Patagonia

    Some of the world’s most breathtaking glaciers have their home in Argentine Patagonia. They include the mighty Perito Moreno Glacier, 250 square kilometres in size, and the Upsala Glacier, rapidly retreating from Lake Argentino.

  • Wines

    Argentina produces some of the world's best wines. For those with an interest in the wine making process we can offer excellent tours of large and small wineries around the city of Mendoza, or take you to more off the beaten track wineries high in the Andes around the northern town of Cafayate.

  • Tango

    The Argentine tango originated in the working class quarters of Buenos Aires, brought to life by European immigrants whose diverse instruments, rhythms and steps came together to create what is today an enchanting and hypnotic dance enjoyed across the country.

Candelaria del Monte

Buenos Aires

Candelaria del Monte is located in San Miguel del Monte, 120 km from the centre of Buenos Aires. It offers a range of included activities such as horse-riding and bird watching. At an additional cost and with advance warning so that we can make the arrangements with the estancia, special activities such as polo lessons or visits to matches, Argentine wine tasting, and even yoga can be organised. There are also occasional tango and native leather art workshops. The house itself has a long glassed hallway that connects different wings.

It has many colonial characteristics and the rooms have delightful individual touches, which may or may not appeal to everyone but are certainly unique. The grounds are vast and full of different kinds of trees, where it is so easy to find a corner where you can be undisturbed for hours. They also host a large swimming pool, ideal for cooling off in the Argentine summer where you should not be surprised if you are joined by Shetland ponies (although not actually in the water)!

Meals are based around the traditional Argentine 'asados' (barbecues) and 'pucheros' (stews) but they also serve Patagonian lamb and trout, and vegetarians will of course be accommodated on request. Please note that the estancia is also the home of some friendly dogs so we do recommend that guests are comfortable with this.
