Description: Estancia la OrientalWith a history that spans over a century, La Oriental manages to blend the traditional beauty of its buildings with the surrounding nature. Time seems to be at a standstill and the landscape remains unaltered by the changes introduced by the owners.
La Oriental is a traditional Estancia bustling with the activity that is typical to a farm in Argentina. Extending over 2,500 acres, the current owners run a modern cattle raising and environmentally friendly agricultural business.
The main house, built around 1880 in a traditional French style is surrounded by a beautiful forest extending over 35 acres. Inside the guests can appreciate the expanse of the house as they walk through the luxurious rooms with high ceilings and the original furniture bought from around the world by the first owners of La Oriental.
