EXPLORING ARGENTINA'S COUNTRY LIFE
Photos & Text by Sarah Casewit
Welcome to Estancia 3 de Febrero
Estancia 3 de Febrero is a family-run ranch, located 6 hours south of Buenos Aires, in the vast Pampas of Argentina near a small colonial town called Coronel Dorrego. The massive farm and estate was once owned by one of the founding fathers of the Republic of Argentina: Presidente Urquiza.
Today, the descendants of Presidente Urquiza are a traditional Argentine family living in complete harmony with their tranquil surroundings and continuing the original owner's legacy. Naya Traveler has exclusive access to this property, where travelers can experience a family stay.
Share their simple yet charming lifestyle, one that is in complete contrast with the fast-paced city life of Buenos Aires. The estate is off the grid in every sense of the term, and allows one to truly disconnect. Rise early to feed the deer, explore the grounds by 4x4 accompanied by the land owner. Indulge in a traditional Argentine asado (BBQ) followed by a well-deserved siesta. Share mate (Argentine hot beverage*) with the family and go horseback riding at sunset.
