Estancia La Bamba Areco, Buenos Aires

Located in the heart of the Pampa, La Bamba is one of the oldest colonial estancias, steeped in history and tradition.

Estancia La Bamba Areco is nestled in tranquil and unspoilt countryside yet only just over an hour from the vibrant city of Buenos Aires. This private house is set in a 200 year old park and each room enjoys views of the park or the owner's private world class polo fields. La Pulperia is the oldest building dating back to the 18th century and is where the gauchos would have sheltered with their horses and carriages. Today it is a beautiful retreat, perfect for reading or simply enjoying a fine glass of wine imagining how the gauchos would have spent their time sharing stories and songs.

La Bamba derives from the Celtic word, Bahamba, meaning 'place of rest and hospitality' and this is without question the essence of La Bamba. Enjoy a morning by the pool, or a hot stone massage or simply read your favourite book in this idyllic spot. For the more adventurous horse riding and mountain bikes are available. With San Antonio de Areco only 10 miles away this is an ideal base to discover this colonial town with cobbled streets, church, bar and museums. The eleven rooms and suites are elegant and understated all with a private patio.
