Highlights / General details
Founded under the protection of a chapel inaugurated by Don José Ruiz de Arellano in 1730 it retains the architectural lines of the Colonial and Renaissance buildings of the XIX century in spite of the passing of time.

El Ombú de Areco Ranch is a historical estancia (ranch) is located in San Antonio de Areco just over an hour's drive from downtown Buenos Aires and the birthplace of the gaucho tradition. The Late-Colonial style mansion is built in 1880 by Lieutenant-General Pablo Riccheri and offers visitors a magnificent setting for an unforgettable stay.

Enrique Boelcke is grandfather of the present owner Eva Boelcke purchased El Ombú in 1934. Eva's father, Osvaldo a renowned botanist, ran the estancia as a working ranch until his death in 1990. Eva was trained as an agronomist, but since 1993 has expanded her role as farm manager to include local and international estancia tourism.

El Ombú offers nine spacious, modernized bedrooms (6 doubles and 3 triples), with one suite bathrooms, large windows and an interesting array of period furniture. In winter guests enjoy the warmth of central heating in every bedroom, augmented, with the friendly glow of the gaucho's typical wood-burning salamander.

The estancia's living room is now a spacious common room in which guests can enjoy satellite TV or videos, a round of billiards, a game of chess or hand of cards. On the adjacent gallery is there also a ping-pong and metegol (table football).

The park and surrounding ranch land with its natural lagoons and small water courses running to the Areco River offer a rich habitat to a large proportion of Argentina's 1000 bird species.

No stay will be complete without at least one asado, the typical Argentinean barbecue of the world's finest beef raised free-range on the estancia.
