Experience our Argentinean dream

With the Sierras de Córdoba in the background, the Estancia El Colibri – member of the Relais & Châteaux – synthesizes the Argentinean dream of Stéphanie and Raoul Fenestraz. With its dark parquet floors, its colonial style and mottled furniture, this charming hotel is primarily inspired by the Argentinean estancias of the beginning of the prior century. But the call of the great outdoors is omnipresent. Horseback riding, polo lessons or lazing by the pool precede delicious culinary experiences, with the asado – the renowned Argentinean barbeque – as a final flourish…

  • To the El Colibri, words won’t do this place or its people justice. Our short stay here has been filled with everything the picture perfect brochure promised : fantastic food, sunset horse-riding… Tank you for every moment. Hopefully see you again soon !

  • This is for us one of the few truly exceptional places in the world, a fabulous experience not to be missed. Nothing negative to report and everything positive is amply described here by other travellers so no need to repeat it. One minor word of advice, if you travel there with your own transport, once you have left Jesus Maria on the road to the Jesuit Church of Santa Catalina (ask, nothing is signposted) don't look for a "Colibri" sign, there is none. As soon as you see a luxurious entry and fence on your right hand side that is it. This certainly has a purpose but which?

  • Wonderful hotel on the countryside with amazing food and excellent service. Our family had beautiful horseback rides around the estancia everyday. The rooms are very spacious and immaculately decorated, as well as the bathrooms. We had the pleasure of meeting the owners, Stephanie and Raoul, who made us feel very much at home. The hotel manager planned our Vigilia de Pascua (Mass before Easter Day) which was beautiful, at a 1600's jesuit church in nearby Santa Catalina.

  • What a joy and a blessing it has been for us to experience El Colibri ! We absolutely love the beauty, the hospitelity that has been extended to us during our few short days here. We all loved the food and massages. We would love to return to this magnificent paradise !

  • This is an amazing estancia (ranch) just 45 minutes for the Cordoba AR (COR) airport. Cordoba is the second largest city in Argentina, but you're definitely well out in the country. We scheduled our stay (5 nights) to "unwind" from an active hiking/biking trip in the Lakes District in northern Patagonia. We made the right call. The people and service couldn't be better, the location is awesome and the activities are excellent. We've ridden horses every day, under the watchful care of Maxi, our gaucho. The horseback riding is incredible among the pampas, with hills in the distance. Tomorrow we're riding for a picnic along the river.
