Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

Sixty miles from Buenos Aires, in the heart of the Pampas. Private transport is available to and from the estancia- or you can always arrive by helicopter...

Rooms at La Candelaria del Monte

The cosy, comfortable and spacious bedrooms feature antique  furniture and colourful bedspreads, cushions and rugs. In keeping with the estancia’s relaxed, laid-back ambience, there are no TVs- a stay here is all about eschewing modern technology and the stresses and strains of daily life.

Food and Drink

You’re greeted on arrival with a glass of wine and some canapés on the terrace, and throughout your stay you’ll be able to tuck into hearty home-grown fare produced on the estate, from eggs for breakfast, beef and vegetables for the asado (barbecue), washed down with an obligatory glass of Malbec, and cake, honey and lemonade for tea- you certainly won’t go hungry or thirsty!


The outdoor pool is ideal for a relaxing swim under the Mexican sun.

Activities at La Candelaria del Monte

You can be as active or as relaxed as you like here. Chill out on the terrace and take in the views over the gardens, take a dip in the inviting pool (perfect for a hot summer’s day), or stroll around the grounds, which are dotted with ancient oak and pine trees. Or why not follow in the footsteps of the gauchos and go horse-riding? Help herd the cows on the estate, or venture further afield- with hundreds of acres of the Pampas to explore, this is the perfect place to saddle up. In the evenings, do some stargazing or cosy up by the fireplace with some more wine.
