Architecture

Hotel has been redecorated a couple of years ago in order to maintain the colonial style as a boutique hotel. Guests will have the feeling of leaving in this private estancia as in the days of the Colorados del Monte!

«When I opened the windows to let the country come in The pampa, the entire pampa was nothing but horizon»

— Olivero Girondo, poet

Enjoy scence of estanica

Right from your window you will enjoy the Pampa’s environment. From the smell of the flowers of jazmines climbing the columns of the galleries, to nesting birds singing for food, a horse neighing at a distance, the sight of an open park home to centennial trees ... nature is just there to be discovered!

Food

All our dishes include seasonal vegetables from the orchard, which can actually be collected by yourself!

All the food grown at the estancia will eventually go through Mariana’s hands: from fresh vegetables to make salads to fruits that will be converted into your breakfast’s jam.

WOW, just wow, something very special!

My wife and I enjoyed 3 nights here at the end of a very busy holiday to Brazil, Argentina and Antarctica and it was a great choice.

The staff team were very responsive to all requests and seemed to be always there when you wanted something but always invisible when you wanted some peace and quiet to relax, just what we like.

WE FELL IN LOVE!

We fell in love with the property and the staff immediately, Great horses, great food, top notch, personalized service. Yes please! They happily accomodated our wish to ride twice daily and while the rides are definitely geared towards the comfort of beginners, the staff had no problem customizing rides for more experienced riders, such as myself.

Bucket list: experience life on an Argentinian estancia. DONE

We went to Buenos Aires for a family wedding and we're looking for something different to do for a few days. Our dream of experiencing life on a farm/ranch in Argentina came true at Candalaria del Monte. The house and rooms were amazing, with furnishings of the locale. Food was beyond excellent, and we gave our personal compliments to the chef.

Beautiful

The hotel is brilliant - a beautiful, expansive building set in parklands. The decor is a little rustic but luxurious, the rooms large, and a large common area. Away from the main building are the pool house, stables and staff quarters. The pool is fantastic. The whole place was spotless and generally very comfortable.

Look around

Location

La Bandada is only 80 km from the International Airport, «Ministro Pistarini», locally known as «Ezeiza», like the city where it is located. Almost the whole trip will be done on the highway. Depending on the traffic, the trip takes around an hour.



You can take the route from Minister Pistarini international airport (known as «Ezeiza») to La Bandada by car.
