Beautiful estancia with so much incredible food, be prepared to go away a size bigger! Could not fault the rooms or estancia itself - it is perfect for utter relaxation and time out. Given the price, we felt the service could have been better as it was a little lack-lustre. Though keen horse riders and confirming in advance we wanted...

We visited Silke, Marcos and the dogs, horses, Hawks and Owls at the beginning of January, coming from an Antarctic expedition.

We spent just three short days at la Sofia but those days made a lasting impression that we will stay with us for ever. The hosts - Marcos and Silke, were the most warm, friendly and welcoming hosts we could have wished for. They really went out of their way to make our stay magical. We loved to hear stories...

We spent 4 days at La Sofia arriving on Christmas Day after monsoon level rains had washed out the roads. This leads me to observation number 1: do NOT rent a car but rather take a car service from Buenos Aires to La Sofia. We rented a car, did not check email before heading out or we would have seen...

I stayed at Estancia La Sofia in late November. Early check-in after a 4am arrival into Ezeiza was no problem. Marcos and Silke were always around so as to be with, and check on, their guests. They were casual and easy. I loved the flat pampas, the November heat and the open shower near the pool. The natural environment is...

Wanting a day excursion from BA, a friend suggested visiting an estancia. La Sofia met all the requirements. Owners, Silke and Marcos, welcomed us and made us feel at home. The estancia has a real boutique feel with beautiful grounds including a pool and polo fields. Our ride around the estate was easy and included seeing small barn owls and...

My husband and I spent the most wonderful three nights at La Sofia. We didn't know what to expect since it was our first time on Estancia, but I love horseback riding, hence, at the end of our "Argentina cruising" holiday we decided to be brave and stop for something different. Well, Estancia La Sofia - kicked every other holiday...

Dear guest, thank you so much for your warm words and compliments. As beginners and with this attitude and enthusiasm I see a great future for you in the world of horses. It is a great pleasure for me to see someone who never got on a horse before, having fun riding and playing Polo. Thanks again for staying with...

We spent two nights at La Sofia and it was a wonderful experience. The food was fabulous, probably the best steak we had in Argentine! The rooms were lovely in a traditional Spanish style with dark wood, tile floors, and white walls. It rained part of the time, and we relaxed, reading books by the fire in the living room...

I stayed for 1night for 2 days of intensive beginner's polo and had the best time. Marcos and Silke were both so kind and welcoming and the horses were also fab.
