With a history that spans over a century, La Oriental manages to blend the traditional beauty of its buildings with the surrounding nature. Time seems to be at a standstill and the landscape remains unaltered by the changes introduced by the owners. La Oriental is a traditional Estancia bustling with the activity that is typical to a farm in Argentina. Extending over 2,500 acres, the current owners run a modern cattle raising and environmentally friendly agricultural business.

Visitor Reviews

Dont just take our word for it, see what visitors like you say...

Wonderful combination of European feeling luxury and Argentine tradition.

Had a wonderful time here. Eating, drinking horseback riding relaxing. Would love to come some day. A very magical place and the hosts and their family are great. We were there for Christmas Eve and we had a group dinner and champagne. Was well worth the trip from Buenos Aires

5 stars
