Nestled in the bucolic countryside of the Córdoba province, El Colibri strikes the perfect balance between traditional-style estancia and sumptuous country estate. With views of the Sierras and rolling pampas of Santa Catalina, this boutique ranch places you in the beating heart of rural Argentina. The property itself was designed to emulate early 20th-century estancias, bedecked with polished wood floors and antiques. It is a family-run estate created by French owners, Stéphanie and Raoul Fenestraz, who regularly chat with guests. They and the staff will gladly advise you on how to spend your days. You could set off on a horseback adventure, tuck into a picnic by the river, or even help out on the farm – a big hit with little ones.

Rooms at Estancia El Colibri

The rooms and suites at El Colibri channel the same charming vibe as the rest of the estancia. White walls are offset by bright pops of color, with elegant furnishings to round it all off, such as iron-wrought bed frames or four-poster beds. Fireplaces only add to the cozy atmosphere. Each room comes equipped with king-size or twin beds, bathtub, separate shower, twin sinks, air conditioning and heating, TV with DVD player, and minibar. The suites have all this plus living areas, terraces, and the finest views. Or you could stay in La Maison, the family home of owners Raoul and Stéphanie. This beautiful property accommodates 12 guests across 5 bedrooms, with Argentine art adorned on the walls and captivating views of the Santa Catalina River.
