Estancia La Sofia, Argentina | Plan South America

Adventure | Argentina | Family Travel | Patagonia | Property | The Pampas

Estancia La Sofia Boutique Hotel & Polo Resort is a charming estancia with extensive grounds, located just 1.5 hours away from Buenos Aires. Founded and run by its owners,  Silke and Marcos Antin Güiraldes, polo is at the heart of the homely and welcoming Estancia La Sofia.

What we love about Estancia La Sofia

  • Situated in a beautiful location with vast grounds and surrounded by wildlife, you feel much further away than 100 km from Buenos Aires. Look out for hummingbirds and Hornero birds.
  • Pick out a bottle of wine from the cellar to pair with your dinner.
  • Run by its owners and with only six suites, you will feel at home here. Get cosy in your room by the crackling fire, feast on homemade meals, dine with the other guests in the living room, and feel truly at home.
  • Guests can partake in daily horse rides and polo lessons with the owner, a former international player.
  • The charming colonial-style estancia features terracotta roofs, mosaic tiles, and wooden ceiling beams.

What to do at Estancia La Sofia

For horseback enthusiasts, Estancia La Sofia caters to all skill levels. Led by Marcos Antín Güiraldes, a polo professional, even beginners can join in. Start at the polo driving range to refine your strokes and positions before savouring a hearty asado for lunch, accompanied by your chosen bottle of wine from our cellar. Explore the Pampas on horseback and learn about the gaucho lifestyle. Cap off the day with tea and house specialities on the terrace, overlooking the polo field.

If tranquillity is your aim, recline in the shade of trees or on the poolside loungers. As the afternoon unfolds, don’t miss the tea service on the terrace. The outdoor pool, adjacent to the polo fields, offers views of the Pampas, perfect for birdwatching. Or have a go at making empanadas and mate tea in the cooking class.

Map & location

Estancia La Sofia is situated in the rural town of San Andres de Giles, offering a tranquil countryside setting just 1.5 hours from Buenos Aires and 2 hours from Ezeiza International Airport.

When to Travel

Estancia Sofia can be visited all year round. We suggest planning a visit to Estancia La Sofia during the polo season (October to early December) to enjoy watching a polo game. The mild weather and beautiful grounds make Spring (September to November) and Autumn (March to May) equally appealing.
