Luxury, service, freedom, entertainment and relaxation.The welcome and attention we received here was second to none. We enjoyed lovely dining, and wine, care of the ever attentive Sylvia and Ricardo who cooked, waited and asada ed (!) to a very high level. Our caution at horse riding, as a first timer (my wife) and 40 year interval for me, was...

We wade to feel welcome by Sylvia as soon as we arrived. The finishing touches to the homely Estancia, open fire, coffee on arrival and lunch prepared especially for us meant we forgot the bustle of Buenos Aires and the 4 hour bus ride immediately. We had the whole complex to ourselves. It's idyllic setting. Watching hours just melt by....

Management was extremely sensitive to my family's personal time and schedule. Service outstanding, flexibility for nutritional needs and impeccable cleanliness. Activities in the ranch were appropriate to level of visitors. The ranch is in a remote, yet easy access area so you will get the peace emanating from that region of the country.

We had a warm welcome on arrival at the Estancia and the care and helpfulness just got better throughout the stay, so that we felt really at home. The accommodation is excellent with an open fire adding the special touch in the evenings. The food was very good and nothing was ever any trouble whilst we were there. As inexperienced...

i cant recommend this highly enough. Originally this for me was all about the riding and the horses, however it turned out to be a relaxing haven with amazing food and a lovely family. It had been raining hard when we arrived but rather than cancel our trip they arranged a local taxi to pick us up from the bus...

We stayed at this estancia for three nights and four days and enjoyed every minute. From the very moment we arrived, we received first class service. The food was cooked to perfection, including the asado and we couldn't wait for our next meal. Cleanliness 10 out of 10. The place is immaculately presented, with well designed interior, comfortable lounges and...

We stayed at Santa Maria in November 2013, having done lots of research on different estancias. We wanted something which wasn't full of day tourists, but isolated, calming and completely peaceful and quiet. Santa Maria delivered spot on brief and excelled every way possible. The staff were extremely friendly, and my terrible Spanish wasn't a problem. They were attentive to...

We stayed here for two nights. We were picked up from the bus station in a very muddy pickup.

We had 48 hours here and enjoyed every moment from the BBQ on arrival to a lovely sunrise and walk on our last morning, accompanied by a very friendly collie dog.

Sadly my family and I only stayed at Estancia Santa Maria for some 24 hours. It is a beautiful and very well run estancia. The house is really beautifully decorated and appointed.
