Estancia La Bandada (ex Candelaria del Monte)


San Miguel del Monte (The Pampas, Argentina)


Around 1 hour 30 minutes south of Buenos Aires. The estancia is a family owned and run house, set in a beautiful park, with sycamore, Ginkgo bilobas, elms, a variety of pine trees and a swimming pool. The brick built house is of colonial design and traditionally furnished with many antiques.


Riding, carriage rides, bird-watching and general estancia activities. You can also watch (or take part in) polo (in season) at the neighbouring polo training centre.


There are 7 comfortable bedrooms: the Owner’s Suite (Suite Picaflor) with an open fireplace and double bed, Suite Hornero with an open fireplace, double bed and private access, and Suite Cardenal with twin beds. Apartamento Las Garzas and Apartamento Las Tijeretas both have two rooms, with one bathroom and a shared living room, ideal for families.

Client comments and reviews

Open QuoteWarm, nice, and classy. Probably best to stay 3 days, we loved the pool and the horses and the dogs. Spotty wifi. Food very good (breakfast and parrillada especially). Special mention to Augustina and staff.Close Quote - FC (December 2023)
Open QuoteWe very much enjoyed our stay here and the staff were extremely nice and welcoming. Food was good, varied and all home cooked. We had great fun riding and “rustling” the cattle-sadly D lost the herd at the crucial moment! Pool was a bit cool and mostly shallow. The only real bugbear was no internet [phone signal dodgy].Close Quote - GW (October 2013)
