Estancia Menelik is probably one of the most beautiful places I have been, for so many reasons… It is not luxurious, but the beauty of it is actually its simplicity. The estancia is lost in the middle of Patagonia, kilometers and kilometers away from any other human life, surrounded by wild nature with stunning colours. Augustin and the gauchos living and taking care of the estancia are absolutely wonderful people, who share their culture, with whom you go horseback riding and show you how to make traditional asados (the typical meat barbecue from Argentina).
The main house of the estancia can fit 10 people. The house was built in 1940 in the English style of the ‘30’s and refurbished in 1998. There are three double rooms and one quadruple, all with a private bathroom. Bring your book to read by the fireplace.
Booking is done through Cielos Patagonicos.
