You will be met at the hotel for a day visit to La Sofia Polo. Located in the middle of the Argentine countryside, but only 60 miles from Buenos Aires, La Sofía is an oasis of calm.
La Sofía is a family-owned and operated colonial-style ranch with spectacular views of the Pampa, private wine cellar and welcoming living areas. The small estancia (ranch) is mainly dedicated to horse breeding and polo. The family has a rich history of polo playing and the German owner, Silke, was one of the first women dedicated to playing polo in Argentina. Silke and her Argentine husband, Marcos Antin Güiraldes, met at a polo tournament that took place at the Real Club de Polo in Barcelona (Spain), where Marcos was participating as a professional player and Silke as an amateur. At the time, Marcos, whose great-uncle was the famous author Ricardo Güiraldes, who wrote the well-known Argentine novel “Don Segundo Sombra”, was managing the Buenos Aires polo club Los Pinguinos, one of the most prestigious polo clubs in Argentina. Experiencing the countryside and traditional Argentine polo lifestyle surrounded by family and new friends will certainly create unforgettable memories. Spend the day relaxing, enjoy a delicious home made lunch, swim in the pool, explore the gardens or enjoy a polo lesson or horseback ride on one of their privately bred horses. It’s a typical Argentine day and a wonderful start to your family adventure.
