The Valley Lodge, or “La Casa Grande” (The Big House), is located at the heart of the ranch, set on top of a hill providing a breathtaking view of the entire valley and surrounding area. This traditional family house is made of native oak wood and stone, typical of the region. It can accommodate up to 12 people in 8 bedrooms and 5 shared bathrooms. A large communal living room with a fireplace, dining room, and a large playroom for the kids – including a ping pong table – are also included, to ensure pleasure and relaxation throughout your stay.
The lodge comes fully equipped and provides family run service to our guests. Excellent food is served by our chef, offering a variety of traditional local dishes including the famous Argentine asados. Meals are accompanied with some of the finest Argentine wines. Telephone, limited Internet, and laundry services are available.
Estancia Caballadas’ secluded hilltop lodge is tucked into a circle of trees, protecting it from the strong Patagonian wind, but leaving it with a stunning panoramic view across the Quillen valley. The lodge is styled like a chalet, with a traditional Oak wood finish and simple, cosy interiors.
Our campsite, set in spectacular locations on our 20,000-hectare Estancia, are accessible only on foot or on horseback, and only to guests of the ranch. Our Horse Riding Expedition Trip includes three nights of camping, weather permitting.
On camping nights, your campsite will be up and running when you arrive! Your personal chef will have a nice bon-fire going, with a traditional Patagonian dish cooking, and a glass of wine awaiting your arrival. After a hearty meal, you’ll enjoy sleeping under the stars.
Nights can be cool, so warm clothes and a warm hat are advisable (we’ll send you a clothing and equipment list when you reserve your trip).
