Escape to a beautifully refurbished traditional farmhouse on a remote, 45,000-hectare estancia in the southern Patagonian Andes. Wild, romantic and soulful, a 3-hour drive from the nearest road, the main house is cosy and homespun, sitting amidst towering peaks on the shores of a vast glacial lake.
Estancia La Maipu’s location, overlooking the electric-blue Lago San Martin, is spectacular. Steeped in local lore and history, it is truly one of the ultimate Patagonian outposts. Take the house exclusively for complete flexibility.
Explore glorious rugged surroundings, horse ride through ancient monkey-puzzle forests, picnic on the lake shores and mountain bike to panoramic viewpoints to watch the sunset.
Guanacos roam the estancia, along with horses, sheep and the occasional puma. The farmhouse offers a cosy, authentic stay with home-cooked meals and a library of books to get lost in by the fire.
Experience the Patagonian outback on a horse-riding adventure to the far reaches of the estancia, traversing incredible scenery, spotting Andean condors and eagles soaring overhead, casting a line for trout in remote mountain creeks and camping under the stars, feasting on slow-cooked lamb and Malbec around an open fire.
Patagonia is the perfect place for an adventurous honeymoon. From here, visit the magnificent Perito Moreno Glacier, or journey by boat along the Patajonian fjords, heli-fishing, rafting and hiking through pristine wilderness.
