We also visit San Antonio de Areco, a village where your guests will discover the gaucho tradition and the farmers who work in big Estancias nearby. We will make contact with the gaucho music and folk dances. It is possible to come across countless regional workshops and shops selling silverware.
Guests can choose from two types of visit: the Overnight Stay or the One-day Visit: The Overnight Stay can last from one to several days. This gives guests the chance to immerse themselves as much as they wish in the life of a working estancia, dedicated mainly to raising Hereford and Aberdeen Angus Stock.
