Experience our Argentinean dream

Come and discover the Estancia El Colibri at the foot of the Sierras de Córdoba in Santa Catalina. This charming house is a member of Relais & Châteaux and a real symbol of the Argentine dream of Stéphanie and Raoul Fenestraz. With its dark wood floors, colonial style and antique furniture, it is above all a charming hotel, inspired by the Argentine estancias of the early 20th century, but the call of the great outdoors is omnipresent. Enjoy horseback riding, polo lessons or lazing by the pool before delicious gourmet moments, with the Asado, the famous Argentine barbecue, as the finale…

Guestbook

  • 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.

  • The best of the estancia is the outstanding team of people that collaborate every day to make your experience absolutely outstanding. Leo and Ornella in the Kitchen and Maxi "the Gaucho" who organizes the horseback ridings or Cabalgatas. My wife and I went with our two young Children ages 11 and 8 and they were patient, accommodating and caring. They organized great cooking classes in very short order and our youngest son developed a love for horses that I am sure he will carry for life. I cannot thank you enough. The hotel facilities strike the right balance without being over the top, which we did find truly charming indeed.

  • As other reviewers have said this is a truly outstanding place. Attentive staff with great food and wines. Riding and polo lessons were amazing. Well worth the trip from Cordobo so we highly recommend coming here. It is not cheap but is worth every penny for a special experience. Only problem is that there is too much good food !

  • 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?

  • 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 !
