This ranch is more than 150 years old. It started as an outpost on the Buenos Aires to San Jacinto-Franklin- Suipacha road. In June, 2005, reopens its doors to the world in order to give its guests an unforgettable experience.
Our Casco (as the estancia houses of the Pampas are called) is a typical colonial structure dating from the XIX century. Local historians date the first buildings to 1829. The beautiful main Casco has two warm dining rooms, two cozy living rooms with fireplaces and salamanders, a library, a video room, ample verandas and magnificent gardens. All halls are tastefully decorated as it was done in the good old times.
In its adjacent buildings La Vasquita houses ten fully equipped suites that are also carefully decorated.
The ranch also provides the comfort that you require for your business and social events.
You can engage in any of the many activities. Our ranch has to offer or you can choose to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet of the Pampas.

Our ranch is emblematic for its surroundings, nurturing our need for contact with nature for those who seek out quiet hideaways. Our close attention to every personal detail makes our guests experience a memorable stay.

The Argentine Asado is more than a meal. It is Art. There is a great Argentine tradition in the ritual of the preparation and roasting of meat. This tradition dates from the Gauchos who populated the whole country and specially the Pampas. The Asado carries the seal of Argentine Heritage.
It is not the open flame that makes the Asado great. It is live coals and the Asado master's expert hand that slowly roast the meat, preserving it's essential qualities and unique flavor that truly make this a taste to remember forever.
La Vasquita's Asado masters carefully select the most tender meat cuts and then proudly execute their art so you can enjoy the incredible taste of the Pampas. The fundamental difference, that makes the Argentine Asado unique, is the way the cattle is raised. The animals are always in the open field and they feed on fresh pastures. This is crucial for the production of the finest meat quality. No doubt Argentina has the best meat in the World!
