Hacienda, Character Boutique
Nestled deep in the remote wilderness of the Valdes Peninsula, Rincon Chico is a charming, family-run estancia and working sheep ranch. Dating back to the turn of the 20th century, the estancia retains its traditional character and exudes warmth and elegance throughout from its handsome wraparound veranda to the intimate, living spaces.
The ranch combines a modern guest wing with the original farmhouse awash with family heirlooms, reference books and maps.
There are 8 cosy en-suite rooms off one corridor, all simple yet warmly furnished in keeping with estancia life. There are no mod cons, Rincon Chico runs off a combination of wind-power and diesel generator, disconnected from the outside world.
Food is a simple yet hearty affair featuring traditional, regional dishes with much of the produce fresh from the farm.
Set in several thousand hectares of coastal steppe including 15km of private beach, Estancia Rincon Chico offers full-board packages and includes all on-site activities from walking and 4x4 jeep rides to visits to their resident sea-lion and elephant seal colonies. Additional whale-watching and visits to penguin colonies can be organised at additional expense.
Rincon Chico is unique and offers an authentic, estancia experience within the wonderful wildlife context of the Valdes Peninsula. Facilities are simple yet charming and above all private and secluded, perfect for those looking to escape the world!
