Estancia El Rocio

Ruta 3, km 102.5 , San Miguel del Monte
Buenos Aires , Argentina

The easy pace at El Rocío, a guesthouse and working ranch, makes it seem worlds away from the cosmopolitan and frenetic city, even though it is just 60 miles outside of Buenos Aires. Days are spent riding the trails and eating authentic, cooked-over-an-open-fire asado (the country's barbecue) at this 400-acre property, located in the legendary Argentinean pampas. The five-bedroom cottage (all wooden shutters, pastel washes, and rustic beams reminiscent of Provence) is filled with exotic mementos from the travels of the owners. There’s Wi-Fi and cable TV, but most guests are content to disconnect.
