One of the oldest estancias in Argentina, La Bamba de Areco is a boutique Relais and Chateaux lodge combining all-inclusive luxury with polo culture


Reflecting the heritage and enduring spirit of Argentina's legendary gauchos, Estancia La Bamba de Areco is a colonial-style boutique lodge set on a vast estate 120 km from Buenos Aires. Spread over three buildings - one of which dates back to the 18th century - Estancia La Bamba features eleven ensuite guest rooms, several communal lounges, a billiard room, a bar, a massage room and a quaint boutique. Around the beautifully manicured park gardens, try an Argentinian bowling game, enjoy a dip in the large swimming pool or unwind in one of the many shaded relaxation areas around the estate. At the heart of the lodge are authentic Argentinean gaucho customs such as skilled equestrian demonstrations, Argentinian barbeques (asados), traditional herbal tea (mate) tastings, horse and carriage rides, music and folk dancing. During polo season, La Bamba de Areco comes alive, with guests able to watch Argentina's international polo team play and practice.
