The "Estancia"
A breath of fresh air, a slight breeze, birds singing, the Pampean sky reflected on the lagoon, and the sound of leaves moving complete the beautiful scenery in the estancia’s exteriors.The estancia is located in Chascomús City, which is 80 miles from Buenos Aires.  It can be accessed directly from the National Highway "Route 2".

Accommodation
We offer a total of 9 fully equipped guest rooms between the two houses including: new and recycled bathrooms, original furniture and a solid overall construction made of noble materials.  A spacious living room, dining room and a cozy fireplace complete the accommodations.  This Tudor style chalet was constructed in 1928 by Fermin Pierri (Grandfather of the present owner).

The old shed has been transformed into a "Quincho".  This voluminous room has a fireplace and wide window panels which provide an excellent view to sunsets, and invites our guests to rest and relax.  In the “Quincho” we usually serve exquisite traditional Argentinean foods to share with family and friends.
