Get in touch with our team of specialists to start planning your Argentine polo experience.
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.
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.
