The main house on the estancia, “El Casco”, built in 1896 by the original founder of the ranch, has been transformed into what is today the hosteria. Built in the classic Spanish estancia style, the house has been completely renovated, respecting the original architectural lines of the house and guests can still see some of the interesting original designs of this well-known house. Guests can walk among old noble trees planted in the early 1900’s that provide the essential shade for this sub-tropical region and, with the recent renovation, enjoy a large collection of a mixture of local native plants and classic azaleas and roses. The lagoon next to the hosteria provides a never-ending wildlife show with carpinchos, friendly alligators and up to thirty bird species in residence. The rooms are the perfect depiction of personal philosophy over diversity. Each room has been designed and decorated in a unique style, according to its own form and placement. No two rooms are the same. Guests will be delighted with objects such as antique historical maps, a collection of stuffed animals and unique wildlife paintings.
