Estancia El Rocio

At El Rocio, it’s easy to create memorable polo experiences for player of any level. Nico and Mandy look forward to welcoming you with open arms, a string of ponies and a full size polo ground! Nestled in 12 acres of peaceful parkland with towering eucalyptus, it is the perfect sanctuary to embrace both the thrill of the game and to relax.

Beautiful both inside and out, this unique polo ranch boasts superbly styled rooms and areas in which to relax and enjoy the perfect Argentine barbecue. All rooms are on the ground level with some offering views across the wisteria laden gallery and out across the polo ground and farmland beyond.

Set in Argentina’s rural pampas but less than an hour from Buenos Aires, most international flights land in the morning, allowing you to arrive at the estancia just in time for our famous dawn chorus.

A typical day starts at 9am with breakfast. Gather your gear and head off to stick and ball and learn new tricks from Nico. Back for a lazy lunch and a poolside siesta. At about 4pm we’ll ring the big bronze bell for afternoon tea and then drag you out again for some chukkas!! A cold beer afterwards and then a home cooked steak accompanied by a glass of Argentine Malbec.

I have been on polo holiday to Argentina 7 times and in the last 2 years stayed at Estancia El Rocio. It is excellent as close to BA, set in beautiful location, horses and polo is to a really good standard. Visiting local players come to afternoon matches and this makes such a difference. The accommodation is good and this is the only place I have stayed that has a chef and housekeeper! Mandy, Nicco and team extend a warm hospitality. Highly recommend.
