Puesto Viejo


Puesto Viejo is a charming estancia & polo club in the rural town of Cañuelas, where the expansive Argentine Pampas begin.

Located an hour outside of Buenos Aires, Puesto Viejo has extensive grounds, including woodland, polo pitches & a yew tree labyrinth maze.

What we love about Puesto Viejo

  • There are 10 en-suite bedrooms all named after the owner’s favourite horses
  • Interiors are traditional & understated, true to the heritage of the estancia
  • Antiques are sourced from local markets & textiles are made by local artisans
  • An open fire sits at the heart of the property & there’s a cosy library to relax in after a long day out in the fields
  • Polo classes are led by bilingual polo professional Julito Casares.
  • Dinner, often a traditional Argentine is served in the shade of the plain trees or under the stars. True to Estancia culture, guests usually dine together, sharing travel stories or perhaps discussing strategies for afternoons on the pitch.
